prompt: “That SOOO classifies as a date.“
First Date - MSR

“That was not our first date. Really Mulder?”

“That SOOO classifies as a date,” he insisted.

He really was ridiculous but she couldn’t help but grin.

“It was a stakeout. We sat in a car for 12 hours watching an abandoned warehouse.”

Her Mulder was as stubborn as he was tenacious. She loved that about him even though it drove her crazy.

“I picked you up from your house. I bought dinner. We spent the evening talking about our lives. I almost kissed you at the end,” he said.

“Dinner was burgers from a drive-thru…wait. You almost kissed me?” That was news to her.

He shrugged and looked a bit sheepish.

“Yes, I did. I had never seen anyone look so beautiful after sitting in a car all night. Your skin just glowed.”

She laughed as she leaned over and kissed him before he could start waxing poetic silliness.

“You’re ridiculous but I love you. Fine, that was a date,” she agreed. It was a silly thing to debate anyway.

Mulder just smiled at her.
