4400 fic: Shy Baby 1/1 K

Title: Shy Baby
Author: Purpleyin

Rating: K
Spoilers: All of Season 2.
Summary: Dreams do come true, especially when you take the steps to make them so yourself. Diana/Marco.

A/N: Betaread by Fanwoman. Ficlet inspired by the lyrics of the song “Shy Baby” which was in the episode “Mommy's Bosses” sung by Jacqueline McKenzie (which she now has streamed on her myspace - jacquimckenzie)

She'd dreamt of kissing him over a year ago. It had all made far too much sense, apart from his surprise appearance. He'd walked her home, as if they were on a date and he was being gentlemanly. The walk had been long and hard, through the rain that had started to pour down on them. But when they had eventually gotten to her place, standing outside to say goodbye, some imaginary clock had struck midnight, and he'd kissed her. Afterwards, she'd looked up to find herself alone in a desolate street, lost with no one to guide her.

She'd woken up feeling like she needed to find him. It had been a passing feeling, one that her rational mind had dismissed, but perhaps it's been at work since then. She's sought him out a lot, leant on him, taking the support he's offered both her and Maia. Right now, at what seems like the end of their journey together through hard times – a parallel to what she dreamt - she's thinking about returning the favour, of guiding them both back home, and inside, to where it's safe and warm. She kisses him, and this time he's still there when she looks up. She doesn't know what to do, but she's not lost anymore.

Tis good to know she's no longer lost.

Lovely story.

Re: yes!
A lovely song it was inspired from. :)

Re: yes!
Very true.
'Boo Boo' is also pleasant. Not sure I can visualize Diana as "bright red" though -- likely a deficiency on my part.

Re: yes!
Bright red? Do you mean because the song makes you think of the colour. I guess the difference is that Shy Baby was made for the series, and it sounds like it could well be talking about Diana (and Marco) but the other is one of her songs, presumably nothing to do with Diana and the series.

Re: yes!
Umm...actually "I turn bright red" is part of the lyrics. My apologies for any confusion.

Yeah, I haven't heard of 'Boo Boo' in the season 1, nor heard of it in s2...but I still like it. (lovely voice!)

Re: yes!
LOL. I was wondering if you had synaesthesia


And Boo Boo, I'm pretty sure it's not from the series at all, as people compiled lists of the music in the series and I know it wasn't on it. Maybe it'll be in s3? They are filming it now and it only turned up yesterday (mind you the other song only turned up a few days ago)
