Roadrunners

“Excruciating” does not even begin to characterize the degree of pain in her back and neck. It is so intense that she briefly loses consciousness on the way out of the barn, coming to in Doggett’s arms in the middle of the road, surrounded by flashing lights and police sirens. His hold on her slips, and his blood-slick hands grip tighter to compensate; lightning shoots up her spine, making her groan.

“I need some help here!” he bellows.

Agony stretches minutes into hours, during which she is dimly aware of being loaded into the back of a squad car. Her head is lifted from the seat and set on someone’s lap, and in her semi-lucid state she sighs with relief that Mulder has come back to rescue her like always. He’s telling her to stay awake, to stay with him, but there’s something wrong with his voice, and she fights to open her eyes so she can see why he sounds so different.

But her eyelids are leaden, and she’s distracted from the mystery of his voice by the thought that she had better not bleed out in his arms just after she’s gotten him back.

That’s the last thought she has for a long time.

The Beatles - She’s Leaving Home  


Wednesday morning at five o'clock
As the day begins
Silently closing her bedroom door
Leaving the note that she hoped would say more

She goes downstairs to the kitchen
Clutching her handkerchief
Quietly turning the backdoor key
Stepping outside, she is free

She…(we gave her most of our lives)
Is leaving (sacrified most of our lives)
Home (we gave her everything money could buy)
She’s leaving home, after living alone, for so many years (bye bye)

Father snores as his wife gets into her dressing gown
Picks up the letter that’s lying there
Standing alone at the top of the stairs
She breaks down and cries to her husband
“Daddy, our baby’s gone.
"Why would she treat us so thoughtlessly?
How could she do this to me?”

She…(we never thought of ourselves)
Is leaving (never a thought for ourselves)
Home (we struggled hard all our lives to get by)
She’s leaving home, after living alone, for so many years

Friday morning, at nine o'clock
She is far away
Waiting to keep the appointment she made
Meeting a man from the Motortrade

She (what did we do that was wrong)
Is Having (we didn’t know it was wrong)
Fun (fun is the one thing that money can’t buy)

Something inside, that was always denied, for so many years…
She’s leaving home…bye, bye.
