Thursday, April 23
F. B. I. Headquarters
Agent Dana Scully walked through the door to find
her partner hunched over the projector. Morning Mulder.
Mwornin came the muffled reply.
Scully settled down in the desk chair and waited for her partner
to begin his slideshow. Hold your hose Scully, this is gonna knock your
socks off. Mulder grinned and clicked the button; a strange picture filled
This was found at the scene. As you can see there are what
appear to be claw marks on one side of the body. Second and third degree
burns cover the front and left side, the back appears to have been smashed
into a wall with tremendous force, and theres evidence of freezer burn at
the bottom. Whata you make of that Scully?
Well Mulder, we wont know for sure until I have a chance to
examine the remains, but Id say it was obviously a crime of passion.
Scully answered swinging her blue gaze towards Mulder.
Well, the local police cant figure out what happened, so guess
whos up to save the day.
Scully simply nodded and picked up the suitcase from behind the
desk. Shed long since learned to have a case full of clothes and
toiletries ready to go at all times. Mulder still hadnt picked up on this
habit and the pair was forced to stop at his apartment before continuing to
Four hours later the agents had pulled up to the front of an
impressive looking mansion and knocked on the door. A large, hairy man with
pointed hair opened the door. If youre selling something were not
interested. And before ye ask, no I havent accepted Jesus, Mary or Joseph
into my heart and eternal damnation sounds fine to me.
You must be Logan. Mulder said, recognizing the face from the
Im Agent Dana Scully, this is my partner Fox Mulder. Were
from the FBI.
Logan glanced between the two of them and opened the door. He
scowled as the two suits asked for Charles Xavier and demanded to see him at
once. Logan stalked down the hall and threw the door open to Charles
office. Cops are here. He told the older looking man before nearly
plowing Mulder over in his hurry to get away from the duo.
I understand that youre here to solve this mystery. Charles
Yes sir, thats what we do. Mulder volunteered.
Sir, is there anything in specific we should know about the
people were planning to interview? Scully pinned the bald man with a
Surely you are aware of the reason this school exists?
Scully and Mulder exchanged a look before nodding their
agreement. Ive cleared the main rec hall for your convenience, and the
small room in the back of it is where youll find the remains. Do let me
know if theres any way I can assist in your investigation.
Well need to use a portable CD player, but that should be the
only equipment that we are lacking. Scully informed him.
Very well. I hate to cut our meeting short, but I fear that I
have an awful lot of business to catch up on that simply cant be put off
Thank you Mr. Xavier. Mulder said.
Please, call me Charles. The bald one smiled warmly.
The G-men ushered themselves out of the office and walked
towards the room they had been directed to. They locked the doors and
proceeded towards the room where the corpse was located. The smell of burnt
plastic still permeated the air, and the two coughed from the overpowering
scent. It looks even worse in person. Mulder cracked.
What sort of person would do this? Its just, a little
excessive if the killer was excessively angry.
Youre the one who said it was a crime of-passion Mulder said,
strongly emphasizing the last word.
Mulder. Scully said, fixing her partner with a glare.
What? He asked innocently. The two regarded the other with a
long look before Scully broke the silence. Who do you want to interview
How many do we have?
10. Five men, five women.
You dont actually believe in the possibility of mutants do you
Scully? Mulder asked, mimicking one of his first questions to Scully from
five years ago.
Mulder, you believe in aliens, and youre questioning this?
Its just that, it seems a little bit too comic bookish.
Mulder, there is scientific evidence that indicates that the X
gene really exists.
Theres also scientific evidence that youre cute. Mulder
Nothing. Hey, check out the burn marks on this thing. It
looks like it was blasted by some intense heat.
Well, there is a fire thrower, and a man who can emit optic
blasts in residence. She answered.
Mulder gave a derisive snort. It just doesnt seem very
Scully laughed lightly, it wasnt often that she got to see
Mulder doubting anything. She admitted to herself she rather liked the
reversal of roles. Ill perform the autopsy on the remains downstairs,
Charles said there was a full medical facility downstairs.
Ill look over the files again, we can decide which mutant we
want to interrogate first.
Scully rolled her eyes and left in search of the med lab for a
gurney to transport the corpse. She could tell it would be an interesting
Annette: We need to talk about Michael
Jackie: Fine. I'll use really small words so you'll be sure to understand
Annette: That won't be good enough!
