Summary: A tumblr prompt fic. @cinderella819 requested #41 (I feel like I can’t breathe.) & MSR from this post. Hope this brightens your day a tiny bit.

“I feel like I can’t breathe.” Mulder tugged at the Kevlar vest.

“Stop it,” Scully said, batting his hands away. She snugged the straps of the vest even tighter, as if to spite him. “It’s going to be fine. You’re going to be fine.“

“Worried, Scully?” Mulder asked frowning.

She let go of the vest after another tug. “Always. I don’t want you to do this.”

Mulder nodded. “It’s the job though. The description didn’t change while we were away.”

“Yes, but we did.” She waved her hand back and forth between them.

“Back in the day, you wouldn’t have blinked an eye at this.”

“Back in the day,” she mimicked him, and continued, “I was just as worried. I just wouldn’t have told you.”

He took her hand in both his and brought it to his lips. “Same here. Let’s say we finish this and then back home for some Goop-O and Dusky Realm eps?”

“You’re on,” she said, squeezing his hand. “Don’t do anything stupid.”

“As you are more than aware, I haven’t changed that much.”
