Alec sat at Rachel’s bedside crying. Wishing she’d just wake up and be ok. He had his face buried in covers of the bed. Rachel’s eyes opened. The room was blurry but she could feel someone holding her hand and crying. She looked over. “Simon?” She asked.
Alec looked up at her. “Oh my god. Rachel you’re awake.” Alec said in shock.
“Yeah I guess I am. What are you doing here?” she asked.
“I…umm…I had to see you.” He said. “I’m sorry for everything. I never meant for any of this to happen.” Alec said. He started to get up to leave, figuring she wouldn’t want him here.
Rachel grabbed his hand. “Stay. Please.”
That was one of the happiest days of his life. It showed him that he still had a chance to make things right with her. That was all he really wanted anyway.
Alec got down on one knee. Rachel’s face lit up. Alec pulled out a little black box. “I love you Rachel. I always have and I always will. Will you marry me?” he asked.
“Yes. Yes Alec I’ll marry you.” Rachel said.
Alec slipped the ring on her finger. She admired it for a moment, then threw her arms around him and kissed him.
Now that they were married and had a beautiful baby girl. She couldn’t be happier. She had truly found that happily ever after she’d heard about. She wouldn’t trade it for the world.
Max stood in White’s living room, talking to his wife. She still couldn’t be that he had one. But when Logan had showed her the picture she knew she had to tell her what her husband had been doing. Though Max really doubted that she would believe her. She had to try. Seeing as White had betrayed them both.
So her she was in his living room telling his wife that he’d be cheating on her. Though Max didn’t know he was married at the time. They weren’t even together anymore. Not after she found out that he was the one behind the Manticore clean up. He wasn’t pleased about her being an X5 either.
“Get out!” Wendy demanded.
“You have to listen to me. He hurt me too, Wendy.” Max said trying to get her to listen.
“Get out! I don’t want to hear your lies.”
“Think about it. Do you really think he was working late all those nights?” Max asked her.
White walked in, gun drawn. “What are you doing here?” White demanded.
“She was just leaving.” Wendy said, answering for her.
Max figured she wasn’t going to get through to her any time soon and with White here it wasn’t going to be any easier. She’d learned when to pick her battles and this one she was most definitely going to lose. “Yeah I was just leaving.” Max said, walking past White and out the door.
White placed the rose over her grave. “I’m sorry Max.”
Max didn’t know why she kept coming back. It was like a bad habit she just couldn’t break or didn’t want to. Every time she told herself she wouldn’t do it again but she always ended up coming back anyway. It was like she was addicted to him. She knew this was screwed up. It was White for crying out loud. She didn’t even remember how or why this thing between them started and really she didn’t want to know. She knew that after tonight she’d say this was the last time but she knew that it wasn’t true. She could never quit him no matter how bad she wanted to she just couldn’t do it and neither could he.
