                                    ~ The Haircut III ~
                                    Tammy Chiddester is just finishing up a haircut at
                                    Andy's barbershop in downtown Washington, DC.  She
                                    accepts the tip offered by the customer just as the
                                    bell above the door rings.  She looks up to see a tall
                                    man in well-worn jeans and a leather jacket carrying a
                                    small boy dressed in blue jeans and a blue wool coat
                                    with a matching cap walk into the shop.  The man sets
                                    the toddler on his feet and takes off the child's hat
                                    and coat.  The little boy takes off running toward
                                    Tammy hollering, "Tommeee," as he nears her with his
                                    arms extended.  Tammy scoops the reddish-brown haired
                                    little boy up into her arms.  "Well William, how have
                                    you been?"  She asks as she kisses his forehead while
                                    he plays with the nametag on her dress.
                                    Mulder removes his coat and whispers, "Will, say I'm
                                    fine."  William replies, "Fine," as Mulder smiles down
                                    at him.
                                    Tammy laughs, "Well that's good," then looks over at
                                    Mulder. "Did Dana ev'r pop out that baby?"
                                    Will chimes in," Da bee-bee!"
                                    Mulder laughs. "Yes, she did, we now have a daughter,"
                                    he says as he takes William from Tammy.
                                    "Congratulations Mulder, what cha name 'er?"
                                    Mulder pulls Will closer to him and whispers, "Say
                                    "Kat-run," Will shouts then displays that patented
                                    Mulder grin.
                                    Mulder pats Will's back and smiles.  "He said
                                    Katherine," then adding, "we're trying to teach him
                                    new words."
                                    Tammy puts her hand on her apron covered hip and says,
                                    "I kin see that, and a fine job yer doin' with 'em
                                    Mulder."  She then turns her chair around.  "Okay,
                                    who's gittin' a trim today?" 
                                    "He is," Mulder says holding out his son as he walks
                                    toward her.
                                    Tammy smiles at him, "Ya sure Mulder, Ah think ya
                                    could do with a lil' off the top too."
                                    "No," Mulder laughs, "Scully likes me better a little
                                    Tammy grabs the booster seat and places it on the
                                    chair.  "Ya sure she don't jus' wanna stop ol' Tammy
                                    here from runnin' 'er fingers through yer locks?"
                                    "No," Mulder laughs with a blush on his face, "I'm
                                    He places William in the chair then Tammy straps the
                                    toddler in place and puts a cape around his neck.  She
                                    turns his head to the side to look at his ear.  "Will,
                                    honey, ya got a wad a cotton in yer ear, how's come?"
                                    Mulder grins at the confused look on Tammy's face. 
                                    "He's had two ear infections and his mother doesn't
                                    want him out in the wind with out the cotton."
                                    "Oh," Tammy says as she runs her fingers across
                                    William's head.  He shrugs his shoulder and giggles.
                                    "Well momma knows best," she says as she pumps up the
                                    "Especially when momma's a doctor," Mulder adds.
                                    Tammy combs Will's baby-fine hair into the natural
                                    part he has in it and grabs the shears, "Same as last
                                    time Mulder?"
                                    "Same as last time," Mulder parrots.
                                    Tammy starts to cut Will's hair.  "Ouch," Will says.
                                    Tammy stops and frowns while Mulder laughs. "Don't
                                    worry Tammy, Scully says he's at that stage where he
                                    thinks every time he's touched it hurts."
                                    "Aww," Tammy laughs, "Tammy wouldn't hurt a lil'
                                    feller like you Will, 'specially one with such a cute
                                    daddy who's packin' a gun."
                                    Mulder chuckles and looks down at the floor.  
                                    Tammy begins to cut William's hair.  "So Will, ya got
                                    yerself a lil' sister?"  Will doesn't respond.  
                                    Mulder leans into Tammy, "He's still not sure what a
                                    sister is."
                                    "Oh," Tammy replies.  "So Will, ya got a new baby at
                                    yer house?"
                                    "Okay," William answers.
                                    Tammy laughs while Mulder smiles at his son. "'Okay'
                                    and 'ouch' are his two favorite words now."
                                    Tammy stops cutting Will's hair and turns the chair
                                    around to face him.  "Do ya like the new baby,
                                    William?"  Will nods his head.  Tammy smiles at the
                                    little boy who's trying to get his hands out from
                                    under the cape.  "You need to get yer momma to bring
                                    that new baby in here so's Tammy can git a look at
                                    Will's eyes light up, "Okay!"  Tammy laughs.
                                    Tammy spins the chair back around and begins to cut
                                    Will's hair again.  He sits quietly while locks of
                                    soft reddish-brown curls fall to the floor.
                                    Tammy speaks up, "So Mulder who does the baby look
                                    Mulder crosses his arms while he intently stares at
                                    his son.  "She is the exact opposite of William.  She
                                    has dark hair and dark, deep eyes.  She's tiny, like
                                    her mother, with ten tiny fingers and ten tiny toes. 
                                    She's so different than William was at that age.  She
                                    is quiet, unless she's hungry and she sleeps well at
                                    "Ah'm sure Dana loves that," Tammy says.
                                    "I've heard no complaints so far," Mulder says as he
                                    leans against the wall. 
                                    "Ah swear Mulder, I never figgered ya fer a family man
                                    but here ya are.  Ya gone an' got yer self married
                                    with two yungin's.  What happened?" Tammy laughs.
                                    Mulder looks up from the intense scrutiny he's been
                                    giving his son's haircut.  "Fate, destiny, the love of
                                    a good woman."
                                    Tammy winks. "She finally wore ya down huh?  Turn yer
                                    head hon'."  She says as she gently turns Will's head
                                    to the left.
                                    "I think it would be safe to say the wearing down was
                                    mutual."  Mulder blushes.
                                    Tammy tosses small wisps of hair onto the floor. "So
                                    ya said ya weren't with the bureau anymore, what cha
                                    doin' then?"
                                    Mulder leans away from the wall and moves to the side
                                    of the chair. "I'm back with the FBI, but I teach now.
                                    Scully and I thought we should both have safer jobs,
                                    at least for awhile.  She's my assistant and only
                                    works two afternoons a week.  We like it that way."
                                    Tammy stops cutting Will's hair to look over at Mulder
                                    and with a grin says, "If you was my teacher, Ah might
                                    have come to school more often."  Mulder grows red and
                                    smiles, shaking his head.
                                    Tammy pats Will's shoulder and removes the cape.  "All
                                    done hon'."
                                    She turns the chair around so Mulder can see Will's
                                    new cut.
                                    "That's more like it." Mulder laughs as he reaches out
                                    for his son.
                                    Tammy unbuckles the boy from the chair and Mulder
                                    picks him up.  Will turns around in Mulder's arms to
                                    look at Tammy.  Mulder whispers to Will, "Show Tammy
                                    how you pout."  Will sticks out his full bottom lip. 
                                    Tammy puts a hand over her mouth and laughs.  Next
                                    Mulder says, "Show her how you look when you're
                                    surprised." Will's little mouth forms a perfect 'O'
                                    while his bright blue eyes grow wide.  Tammy lets out
                                    a hardy laugh and claps and Will claps too. "Very good
                                    William, bet yer daddy taught ya that?"
                                    Mulder beams down at his son and says, "Well we better
                                    go, mom's going to wonder where we are, isn't she
                                    "Okay," Will replies and this time both Tammy and
                                    Mulder laugh.
                                    Mulder sets Will down on his feet so he can put his
                                    wool coat on him. Tammy rests her elbow on the top of
                                    the chair and watches the two interact. "Ya sure got
                                    yer daddy well trained there Will."
                                    Mulder slips into his own coat and pulls out his
                                    wallet, mindful that Will's wandering around the small
                                    barbershop.  He hands Tammy a twenty and tells her to
                                    keep the change.  Tammy pockets the bill and thanks
                                    Mulder scoops up Will and adjusts the little boys cap
                                    and says,  "Come on son, time to go."  He stops and
                                    turns to face his friend, "Tammy, Scully and I are
                                    having a get together this weekend, just a few friends
                                    who helped us move, would you like to come?"
                                    Tammy's face lights up, "Ah sure would, thanks fer the
                                    invite."  Mulder nods and heads for the door.  
                                    Tammy speaks up, "Mulder."
                                    "Yeah Tammy."
