Walter rolled over and a pain shot through his leg. He moaned softly and Alex's hand reached out to sooth him. He settled back waiting for memory to return, and when it came with a rush, he moaned again. Turning his head, he saw Mulder right where his memory had told him he'd be...sitting slumped in their bedroom chair, his sock covered feet resting on the bed, and snuffling softly.

Walter reached down to touch hesitantly the stitches in his leg. Scully had done a neat job; he'd give her credit for that, but the medication had worn off and he was in pain.

He wondered just how much Mulder had seen the night before. He had no doubts it would be useless to try and lie at this point. But had he seen them change, seen them naked? Fuck!

Well, he was about to get an eyeful if he hadn't already, because Walter needed to piss and Mulder was on his side of the bed. The way his leg felt, climbing over Alex to get up on that side wasn't an option.

Nudging Mulder with his foot, he spoke. "Mulder, I need to get up, move."

Mulder's eyes opened and he stared balefully at Walter as he discovered the kinks in his neck from sleeping slumped in a chair. Alex stirred on the other side, eyes going wide when he realized Mulder now knew about them. He wasn't really sure which was more of a problem, the werewolf thing or the man-on-man sex thing.

Mulder dropped his feet and Walter grunted as he got to his feet. "Did you think to ask Scully for a painkiller for me to take this morning?"

"I wish I had, I'd steal part of it. Where's the guest bath?"

"Down the hall, second on the right."

Mulder left the room as Walter made his way to the master bath. Alex followed Walter. As Walter peed, Alex opened the medicine cabinet. Digging through the stuff in there, he came up with a bottle that hadn't passed the expiration date. Shaking one out onto his hand, he filled a glass with water.

Walter accepted the pill and the water as he and Alex changed places. By the time they pulled on clothes and went in search of Mulder, he'd found the coffee and had the pot going.

"Okay, Mulder, let's get right to it, how much do you know?"

"I know that my boss is a werewolf who's gay or at least bi, and he's in a relationship with a former agent. By the way that transformation thing is very cool."

"Cool? Why am I not surprised you think it's cool? So where did they take your prisoner?"

"I'm not sure. Scully probably has him in a cage at a vet's office. Do you have any idea who it is?"

"No, we think it might be the one who turned Alex."

"That answers one of my many questions. So then Alex decided to have you join the ranks?"

"It wasn't like that, Mulder." Alex spoke for the first time.

"Alex came to me when he recovered from the attack. He didn't know he would change. He just happened to transform while we were…well...ah...he scratched me and then followed his instincts to clean the wounds. When the next full moon came around, I changed with him."

"Judging by your actions last night, I'm assuming you are completely aware of who you are when you change."

"Very much so, and we can 'talk' to each other in that form as well."

"Mulder, I thought you were so intuitive, how come I had to play fucking Lassie for you?"

"I'm learning, too, Krycek."

"Oh, please, call me Alex...after all you've seen me naked. Couldn't you have at least pulled the sheet up over us?"

"Alex, calm down, he didn't *know* we'd change. Although, I too wonder about that, since you seemed pretty convinced it was me."

"I'm sorry, Sir. I should have done that. If it's any consolation, I couldn't see much since Alex was on his stomach, and you were on your side."

"Then you got to see Alex from his best angle." Walter laughed as Alex threw the spoon he'd just taken from the drawer at him. Walking over to Alex, he wrapped an arm around him.

"Alex, you need to lighten up. Mulder knows and he's not running down the street outing us. Have you forgotten how he protected our identity last night?"

"He probably just didn't think she'd believe him."

"She probably wouldn't, but she might have stuck around to prove him wrong. So this morning only Mulder knows. What *are* your intentions, Mulder?"

"Sir, I see no reason to discuss this with anyone. The two of you aren't hurting anyone. I'd really like to know as much as possible about how it works and why. But that's really your business and I'll respect your privacy."

Before anything else could be said, Mulder's cell phone rang. "Mulder."

"Mulder, someone is playing tricks on us."

"Good morning to you, too, Scully."

"Mulder, did you hear what I said?"

"Yeah, Scully. What do you mean?"

"The vet's office just called to tell me they found a naked man in the cage when they opened up this morning. I'm on my way over there to talk to him."

"Scully, don't let him leave! Give me the address and I'll meet you there."

Skinner shoved a pen into his hand and held out a pad. Mulder scribbled, then disconnected the line. Alex was already pouring coffee into a travel mug. He held it out and Mulder took it from him.

"She did take him to a vet. They were surprised to find a naked man in the cage this morning. I'll call you with an update later, Sir. You should probably stay off your feet today. Shit, my shoes."

"They're by our bed where you left them."

"Thanks." Mulder ran out of the room, but was soon back. He grinned at them. "I'll call you later."

"You see that you do. We want to know as much as possible about this guy."

The end.
