"Mom, Mulder's crazy."
"Dana, you don't mean to say that your partner -"
"I told him about the Halloween party that one of our co-workers is holding in the cafeteria. And he picks out this crazy outfit - "
"It's for Halloween," Maggie said, frowning. "What's so crazy about that?"
"We have a case that we're dealing with for the past few weeks. I can't go into details, but we have to go to court about the evidence in a different case on that day. He said he's going to wear that to court!"
Maggie sighed. Now she understood why her daughter was upset about Mulder's idea of wearing the costume her daughter was holding up her partner's black tear away pants, cuffs, and red bow tie. There was no shirt in the ensemble. "He is going to pretend that he's a strip club dancer?"
"A strip club dancer? Dana, I think this might be great for you."
"He obviously loves you enough to show you a very good time."
"Mom, we have court that day! He can't wear that there!" Her face reddened while she continued to picture it in her mind. "No matter how much I think he would be the hottest man there - it just won't look good to the outside world."
"Mom, don't tease me."
"I'm not, honey. People would be dressing up in costumes, probably even zanier than what Fox would be wearing. It's Halloween, for goodness sakes!" She paused. "Think of all the possibilities of this costume, Dana. It would be great for um, some interesting positions."
"Dana, I'm just trying to help." Maggie turned around and saw Mulder standing there in the doorway, smirking at both of them.
"How long have you been standing there, Mulder?"
"For fifteen minutes, Scully."
"Oh, my God! You heard practically everything," Scully said, blushing. This conversation has been a sort of embarrassment over details about her sex life with Mulder. Scully didn't want to discuss the big "it" with her mother and then finding out that Mulder had heard the whole thing. Her face simply flushed again like a red tomato and her eyes gazed at Mulder.
"Well, it's certainly a revelation that Maggie thinks that this," he pointed to the costume, "would be helpful to our sex life, Scully."
Scully sighed. She never was fond of revealing private details about herself with anyone, but she has been opening herself up like a book to Mulder and by extension, her mother. "I can imagine what sexual positions that I want to do to you, Mulder."
Mulder smiled. He loved it when he caught Scully in an embarrassing proposition, which usually led to a blissful night with just the two of them. "Oh, really?"
Scully nodded seductively. She smiled at him and thought of that negligee that she bought. "I need to get you alone, G-Man. I love it when we're together. Like last week." Oh yes, last week was a fun-filled lustful night of relaxation and making love until the early morning sunrise. Her memory of the skin-to-skin contact between the sheets came back, giving her a wonderful release.
Mulder laughed nervously. He had an idea what Scully was up to, but decided not to let on that he knows anything about it. "Um, Scully, your mother's still here. I don't think...we should do that now."
"I'll leave you two alone now," Maggie said with a knowing smile.
Scully hug her mother. "I'll talk to you later, Mom."
"Take care of yourself, Dana. I want details of your adventures with Fox."
Scully whispered in her mother's ear and nodded. "I will." With that, she watched her leave the apartment and turned towards to Mulder.
"Are you planning something, Scully?"
"You're a bad liar."
"Mulder... Mom wanted us to be alone together. She thinks we're too busy with cases."
"And we should do something about that, don't you think?" Scully asked, purring like a tigress wanting to get together with her mate.
"I think we should," Mulder agreed.
