“Are you sure you’re up to this, Mulder? I know exercise is good but crutches on grass can make for a dangerous combination,” Scully says warily as they continue their trek across the grounds of the property. The estate is situated on a bluff and she assumes they’re headed towards the edge to get a view of the ocean. She’s not complaining, much preferring the sea and the smell of salt in the air to the stuffy, old mansion, but at the same time she doesn’t want Mulder overexerting himself, possibly taking a fall on her watch.
“Well it’s a good thing my escort is a doctor.”
“I’m not a doctor. I was pre-med,” she corrects.
“You’ve got a gun on you though. If I take a tumble just fire off a round as a cry for help,” Mulder says simply.
“Well so long as you have a plan. How much further are you taking us?”
He stops then, raises his crutch to point to an old wooden porch swing in the distance and she nods. The distance is doable, and at least once they get there he’ll be able to sit.
“Ladies first,” Mulder says once they reach the swing. Shaking her head, Scully folds her arms.
