ALIAS: Empty Pronouns (Sydney & Sark)

sarkastic requested an Alias ficlet with Sark and Sydney.

Title: Empty Pronouns
Author: voleuse
Fandom: Alias
Pairing: Sydney & Sark
Rating: PG
Disclaimer: Not mine.
Summary: I walk from coffin to coffin at nine and at five.
Notes: Futurefic



Even after the she left the organization, Sydney hadn't expected to live so long. She could hide, she could rebuild, she could change all she wanted, but sooner or later, she had known somebody from the past would recognize her.

It would only take a glance, a single flash of memory, for her death to be spelled out. It wouldn't even have to be somebody she remembered--there were innumerable guards, technicians, and hangers-on she had spared, even after she'd captured or killed the bad guy.

After having the kids, it was easy for her to put death out of mind, but not a year went by without having to attend the funeral of one of Michael's old coworkers, or reading about a murdered colleague, or enemy. (The newspapers were never so bald as to declare them murders, of course, but Sydney had long ago learned to catch the telltale markers: Mysterious. Controversial. Accidental. Authorities investigating.)

Now, three continents separated from her family, mind roiling with the latest favor she was doing her country, Sydney stared down the barrel of a gun.

"I made you an offer, years ago," Sark mused. "I don't suppose I could persuade you to reconsider?"

She pressed back against the railing behind her, felt the wash of the ocean beneath her feet, and suppressed the urge to spit. "Do I get a choice?"

He smiled.

Syd and Sark. So great. I love that middle paragraph. I can so see Syd in denial - because hey, she is a lot of the time - but then still going out and doing her duty when asked. Such a complicated girl. And Sark isn't exactly transparent either. ;) This is great.
