A/N: Takes place after All Things
It was a particularly difficult case to wrap up today. Mulder was used to going to court to testify against suspects, but today there was something absolutely gut-wrenching about how he looked. It sickened him. Seeing the smug look on his face as Mulder described his twisted and predatory felonies made Mulder want to wring his neck out. He was a teacher…a kindergarten teacher. Those children were his responsibility to protect and nurture. Imagine trusting your child’s life with a monster like him. Scully noticed how uncomfortable Mulder was after the trial and asked if he wanted to go out for drinks to help relieve his mind of the horrible actions of this man. He agreed, needing something strong in his system. He hardly spoke the entire way to the bar. It wasn’t that far from where he lived; only about three blocks. He doesn’t like to drink too much, but whenever one of those emotionally and physically draining days hits, he’ll spend most of the night there.
“How can someone just fucking do that?” he questions, slightly drowsy from the liquor.
She offers a weak smile and rubs his shoulder comfortingly, “Mulder, trust me, it doesn’t sit too well with me either. I wish he was left to rot years ago.”
