I'm very good at saying no. No, Ethan, I used to say. No, I really don't like that pink sweater. No Mom, no, Dad, I'm not crazy. I really do want to join the FBI.
No, I would not like to super size that.
No, no, no.
So what in God's name makes me say 'yes'?
'Help me, Scully' he says, and suddenly I am on my knees digging up a long dead girl with my bare hands, breaking fingernails, disturbing a possible crime scene and encouraging his not-quite-healthy interest in the John Lee Roche case. Fat, white grubs wriggle as we disturb them. Beetles, black and shiny scurry. The scent of newly turned earth permeates the air around me, mixed with Mulder's sweat and desperation.
His ardor is contagious and I have become a victim.
