Title: The Race
Authors: Cassie & Kristi
Summary: Mulder finds out that Krycek is his neighbor after scurrying around a grocery store.
Spoilers: None, we try to create our own stuff... but remember sometimes we have to refer to happenings in the actual show "The X-Files"...
Disclaimer: We do not own the characters Mulder and Krycek, Chris Carter, 1013 Productions, and 20th Century Fox own them. Bob the employee is our creation however. Oh we don't claim "Lucky Charms" as our own as well.
INT - HAPPY GILLIGAN'S GROCERY STORE - DAY
There is happy elevator music, the kind you wouldn't want to listen to for a long time. We see MULDER opening a bag of sunflower seeds, he eats a few and moves on, putting the opened bad of seeds in his shopping basket. He grabs a box of "Lucky Charms". Mulder looks up to the ceiling and catches himself in the mirror in the corner where the walls meet the ceiling, he straightens his gray t-shirt.
Mulder enters the meat section of the store, he looks left then right before finally speaking to the employee:
POV KRYCEK, his turning the corner to the bakery section BAM! All of a sudden, he (the camera) is hit with a loaf of bread.
They are quickly walking down the street, unable to run because they are carrying paper grocery bags. They both keep checking out how the other is doing, they look utterly insane.
EXT - MULDER'S APT. BUILDING - DAY - CONTINUOUS
Krycek quickly opens the dorr, it flies open almost hitting him in the face. Mulder is right behind him. They both go and check their mail... Mulder gives Krycek the look of "why are you in my apartment building?". They quickly sprint to the elevator. The door shuts behind them as they both press the button for the fourth floor. They glare at each other, both extremely out of breath. A few moments pass before the door dings open on the fourth floor and they haul ass to their respective apartments. Krycek's door is next to Mulder's, but Mulder is further down the hall. Mulder looks at him with despising shock, as Krycek opens his door and gives Mulder a "haha" smile and closes his door, he has won.
Mulder goes into his apartment, puts down his groceries, goes over to Krycek's and bangs on the door. Krycek answers the door, pretending he doesn't know Mulder, he smiles:
Well, I didn't know
you live next to me.
We can be buddies!
