Sweat trickled off of Mulder's face as he ran. Boy, this alien, or whoever he was, was fast. Faster than any normal human, that's for sure.
"Mulder, look out!' Scully shouted from behind him. He ducked as he saw the shadow. He sighed in relief as he heard the gun go off. Thanks to Scully, whoever shot him missed him by that much.
This wasn't just one person, this time. It was a whole group of them that they were after. Mulder knew that they weren't aliens, but they weren't human either. Whatever they were, they were dangerous.
"Mulder!" Scully shouted in pain and panick. Mulder whipped around to see one of them strangling his partner. He pulled the gun out and headed towards them. But the shadows made it hard to tell who's head was who's. He squinted as he tried to make out Scully's hair.
Suddenly from behind them a figure pulled the thing off of them.
"Scully, are you all right?" Mulder hurried up to her as they heard growling and sounds of struggle coming from the shadows.
"Yeah," she said, her voice shaking a bit. "At least, I think so...." Her voice trailed off as she stared at the noises. Suddenly a figure emerged. Mulder stiffined. It wasn't the Thing that they were after, though. A normal looking, rather dark and tall, man walked out. He headed towards Scully.
"Are you all right, miss?" He asked softly. Scully stared at him.
"Yeah, I'm fine," she said slowly. She eyed Mulder who shrugged.
"Good," the man said and turned to walk away.
"Wait!" Mulder shouted anxiously. The man stopped. "Who...Who are you? Or what are you?"
The man hestitated before answering.
"Believe me," he said softly. "You don't want to know."
With that he left, leaving both Scully and Mulder more than a little dazed at what just happened...
