This fic was inspired by the lovely @xfile-cabinetx I was talking with her and she told me how she wanted a fluffy piece and she said a certain line and this idea popped into my head. I know that I owe that much since I have written two pieces that were super angsty. I hope you enjoy!

Scully looked at Mulder’s sleeping form in the early hours of the morning. She couldn’t stop smiling to herself. She can’t remember any time that she has ever seen him this at peace while he was awake. Scully slipped out of bed, grabbing one of his shirts hanging from his bed post, leaving the couple top of buttons undone. She pulled light grey wool socks on that drooped around her ankles before padding quietly to the kitchen. She glanced over her should to make sure she didn’t wake him before she started to rummage quietly through his kitchen cabinets for coffee and some sort of food. She frowned to herself when she only found the proper stuff for coffee.
She looked at his overflowing sink of used coffee mugs and the outstanding amount of garbage that was stuffed into his garbage bin. She couldn’t help but shake her head before pulling her hair into a loose pony tail as she tried to figure out what to tackle first. Finding a clean mug or finding something edible. She let out a soft snort and figured that it would be easier to clean two mugs.
Mulder leaned against the door frame, grinning to himself. He watched the way that she stretched for his dish detergent. He admired the way his boxers peeked out from underneath his shirt. He wished he had a camera to freeze this moment in time for eternity. This was one of his favorite ways of seeing Scully.
Scully rolled up her sleeves before running the hot water. She nearly jumped out of her skin when Mulder wrapped his arms around her lithe waist. She felt his gentle lips and his prickly stubbled rub against her skin before she felt him kiss where her neck and shoulder met. She heard his deep inhale and couldn’t help but smile to herself.
“Mmmm…. if you keep doing that, we won’t have coffee until noon!” Scully teased as she relaxed her body against his.
Mulder smiled to himself as he squeezed her tighter to his body, “Oh is that so? Well, I guess that will have to wait until later. After last night, I need some coffee and food in my system before I can even function properly.” Mulder didn’t have to see Scully’s face to know that she was blushing.
“Then how about you let me get to work and accomplish this for us?” Scully quipped as she gently rubbed her palms against his bare arms. She could feel his heat radiate into her body, warming her to the bone.
