Author's notes: This time the drabble subject was 'Flowers'. And I've learned that for something to be called a drabble, it must be exactly 100 words long. Mine, being 200 words long, is a double drabble. ;-) I'm not making that up, the term does exist.

The cherry trees are blooming, the air fragrant as I walk along the Tidal Basin on my way to meet with Mulder. The golden rays of sunset dazzle me, making my eyes tear.

Funny how I never noticed how beautiful Washington DC is this time of year. Funny, how the world should end in spring.

I find him waiting for me under a tree. There are flowers in his hair, blossoms floating around us in slow-motion, riding the breeze in a whirl of milky whites and pale pinks, and I can't help but smile when his eyes meet mine.

When he smiles back at me, my heart speeds up. I could never fail to notice how beautiful Mulder is.

We stand face to face and we don't speak. And yet we say so much. We say... everything.

He pulls me closer and I lean into him. His lips are petal-soft, his mouth honey-sweet as we kiss, and everything around us breathes.

It feels like our first kiss. It is the last, and I've never been more alive, butterfly wings beating inside me, blossoms aswirl in the air, the ground spinning beneath us, with us, spinning...

And then... there is Light.
