Timeline: Estimating that the end of season 4 ended in the month of May, consider this to start in July of that same summer.
Summary: After suffering series of debilitating headaches and blackouts, Julian Sark takes a doctor-recommended leave from the second oldest profession in the world, espionage, only to be pulled right back into the thick of things at the arrival of a strange, scarlet envelope at his home. It contains intel concerning his longtime mentor, Irina Derevko, and there is only one other person who can help him find her. Sydney Bristow has left her life as a CIA operative to start a new life in anonymity after her sister, Nadia, is left in a coma and her fiancé, Michael Vaughn, is killed by Prophet 5, a mysterious terrorist group. She is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered existence when a familiar enemy and sometimes associate crashes back into her life. Reluctantly, they must work together to save something invaluably important to the both of them and in the in the process, maybe even save each other.
Author’s Note: I feel like I am always apologizing for taking so long to post! I'm not even sure anyone is still following FWF, but for those you still with me, I am eternally grateful. It's not quite the end yet...the last chapter (how many parts it will contain, I don't know) will be chapter 13. Had to split the rest of chapter 12 into two parts, so make sure to read part 2 and then part 3, with the soundtrack as always at the end. As for the chapters' content, this chapter has been in the making since the very beginning. In fact, I built the rest of the story around the concepts introduced and explained in these two parts, some of which I'm not sure everyone will like. These chapters are very dialogue heavy and a lot of exposition is explained, so please excuse me for being so long-winded. That being said, please enjoy the rest of chapter 12, which contains a cure for the blackouts, the identity of The Messenger, and a cliff hanger ending that I will apologize for right now :-) Enjoy!
Part Two: ( You don't need me. You want me. There's a difference. )
Part Three: ( She couldn't believe she would wake up tomorrow and he wouldn't be there. She held on to him longer than she should have, but not as long as I wanted. )
