Scully hurled the report into the trash can and dropped down onto the chair in front of Mulder’s desk. “They ask me to debunk your work, and then when I can’t do that, they just redact everything? And you want me to just sit here in silent fury and just take it?”
“No, I want you to get back out there with me, do our jobs, and write even more reports, and make even more noise. Show them they can’t suppress the truth just using a magic marker.” As he spoke, he handed her a new case file.
Mulder leaned back, watching her intently as she read about their new assignment. He delighted as her eyes widened, knowing that she was reacting to the reason it was an X-File.
“I’ll go requisition a car,” she said as she stood. She was still reading the file as she moved to the door.
“Just so you know, Scully,” he said, prompting her to turn back, “there’s nothing silent about your fury, and I wouldn’t want it any other way.”
