Chapter Text

Three months later.

(It's been three months since Ryan was shot and died in the arms of the woman she loves after witnessing losing someone else they all loved and cared about Mark

went back into the life he swore he'd stay out of but thanks to the loss of Ryan and the three out of the four Evermoist members deaths when their plane came down

shortly after their plane came both Beca and Calamity had both also died in the crash but were both brought back only months a part soon after being brought back

Beca went to Australia and showed up to Kate and Sophie's wedding to see her wife after reuniting with Calamity. Two months after the wedding they all once again

lost someone they loved and cared after losing Ryan Mark went straight to Sabatino and told him to tell Peter August that if it was a war that he wanted then he had

one. But everyone in Mark's group of friends all know it will be one war that August doesn't win. All of this is leading up to three months later over at Mark's record

label he's sitting down at his desk going over some paper work as someone knocks on the door getting him to look up at it.)

Mark: It's open.

(The door opens and they walk into the room as they walk in they close the door getting him to look up at them.)

Mark: Mary!
Mary: Hi.
Mark: Hi. You okay?

(He gets up and walks over to her as he gets to her she quickly hugs him getting him to smile at her.)

Mary: I was in her old motel room when i came across this.

(She pulls away from him and hands it to him what she found seeing it he looks at it and then leans against the desk as he's looking it.)

Mark: Isn't this?
Mary: It's from Kate and Sophie's wedding.
Mark: Wow. You two looked so happy.
Mary: We were. God Mark i miss her so much.
Mark: I know. Come here.

(She hugs him again getting him to smile at her.)

Mary: I miss her and i miss my sister.
Mark: I know Mary I'm sorry.
Mary: Why it's not your fault their plane came down or that Peter August shot and killed Ryan.

(She pulls away from him and can see the look on his face.)

Mary: I'm sorry.
Mark: No it's okay. We all miss them. And wish we could bring them back but we can't.
Mary: I know that.
Mark: I will get Peter August for this.
Mary: I know. I just don't want you to go so far down Mark that it will make you lose everything you've gained with my father and the rest of the Crows.
Mark: I won't. I worked to hard to gain your father's respect to ever screw it up Mary.
Mary: I know.
Mark: Okay. So other then this. What brings you by?
Mary: With Kate being busy and well.
Mark: No i get it. Look one of these days Peter's gonna screw up and it's gonna be his down fall. All i need is for him to screw up.
Mary: Okay. But like i said.
Mark: What?
Mary: Don't let what happened to them.
Mark: I won't. If Peter ends up losing Maxie it'll be his own doing not mine.
Mary: Okay. I better go.
Mark: Okay. I'll see you later okay.
Mary: Okay.
Mark: Are right.

(She turns and walks off to go home as she leaves someone comes out of the shadows and looks at him feeling someone there he looks up at them and laughs.)

Mark: What?
Grace: You realize how upset she's going to be when she finds out just how far you're willing to go in order to take out Peter August.
Mark: That's what i have you and your brother for.
Grace: Ouch.

(He laughs at her.)

Mark: What's up?
Grace: Just wondering why you came to me and my brother instead of John Wick.
Mark: Me and John might of made peace after the whole thing with Ares and Santino but.
Grace: What?
Mark: August is working with Johnny Sabatino.

(She looks at him and then looks off annoyed.)

Grace: Lovely.
Mark: Yeah. He's someone whose willing to do just about anything to get what he wants.
Grace: Does that mean even killing the girlfriend of Jacob's Kane's step daughter.
Mark: No one said August made much sense.
Grace: That is true. But if he's as smart as you say he is.
Mark: Because he may seem smart but we all know the only one who could out smart someone even more insane then well you.

(She laughs at him.)

Grace: I'm not that bad.
Mark: You hijacked a train full of innocent people and killed for the sake of it.
Grace: They got in my way.
Mark: See this is why i called for you.
Grace: You could off called for Buckingham.
Mark: He's not as pretty to look at.

(She laughs at him again.)

Grace: Still never going to happen. But then again aren't you engaged to be married?
Mark: I am. But with everything going on.
Grace: What?
Mark: We haven't really actually sat down and talked about setting a date.
Grace: So instead of plotting revenge against your friends Fiancé why don't you sit down with yours and start planning your own wedding?
Mark: Because i can't really see clearly right now.
Grace: I can see that.
Mark: August has gotten away with some much Grace and I'm fed up with it.
Grace: Well we can do everything we can to look into the bastard but it's not gonna change anything.
Mark: I know. Maxie has her blinders on and isn't willing to see him for bastard that he is.
Grace: She's not. So if i were you I'd be careful Mark. Someone like Peter August might strike when you least expect him too.
Mark: He did that three months ago when he shot and killed My bestfriends little sister's girlfriend.

(She nods her head at him.)

Grace: I'm just saying Mark.
Mark: I know that. Here.

(He pulls the flash drive out and hands it to her.)

Mark: That's everything I've learned about Peter August.
Grace: Wow and it all fit onto this.
Mark: It should be more than enough to help you and Oliver find the prick and finally put the bastard in the ground.
Grace: Okay.

(She turns and walks off as he sits down in his chair and looks out of the window as he's looking out of it his phone goes off he grabs it out to see who it is seeing the

number he mutes it and then puts the phone down. Over at Kane Tower Kate puts her phone down as Luke and Julia walk into the office.)

Luke: You are right?
Kate: Mark's not answering his phone.
Julia: He's really taking Ryan's death hard.
Kate: Yeah he is. He's taking it just as hard as Mary.
Luke: I can understand Mary. But Mark?
Kate: They were becoming friends and you know Mark he's a lot like me.
Luke: True.
Julia: And you guys know what's coming up right.

(They both look at her and then look off.)

Luke: The anniversary of the plane coming down.
Kate: Yeah i know. I know it's hitting my dad hard too. And knowing that my sister who just happened to be the mother of my nephew was on that damn plane with her bandmates and the Bellas.
Julia: I know. All four including Beca Mitchell were all dead.
Luke: Yeah. Both her and Calamity were brought back.
Kate: Yeah. I mean Mark's happy their alive. But he's still being hit really hard over Vera's death.
Julia: Is there a chance he was still in love with her?
Kate: Yeah there is.
Luke: Why didn't he say anything?
Kate: Because he might not of known it. At least until the plane came down and she was killed.
Julia: You don't know what you have until their gone.
Kate: Yeah.
Luke: Well that sucks.
Kate: It does. So what's going on?
Luke: I've been going through Johnny Sabatino's phone records from the last several months and you'll never believe who he's been calling.
Kate: Who?
Luke: Peter August.

(He hands the file to Kate who looks through it as she's looking through it she looks at him and then looks off.)

Julia: Plus me and Sophie have been doing a little more digging into the plane crash that killed the three out of the four members of the band.
Kate: Okay and?
Julia: After your wedding and after Ryan was killed i started thinking that maybe there's more to the plane coming down other then Jesse Swanson wanting kill off Calamity.
Kate: Meaning.
Julia: Meaning neither him nor Beca's father knew that Beca would be on that plane.
Luke: No they didn't.
Julia: So someone else must of known she'd be on that plane.
Kate: If they did.
Luke: Who the hell else would of known about them being on that plane.

(Kate looks at them and then looks off.)

Kate: Or maybe the person they were hoping was on the plane was me.

(They both look at her and then look off annoyed.)

Luke: And seeing as to how Batwoman has made a lot of enemies.
Kate: Yeah and there's still someone out there whose still sore that i took him down with the help of Reagan.
Julia: Johnny Sabatino!
Kate: Bingo. If he had any reason to have me brought down then bringing down their plane just might be his reason.
Luke: But didn't the plane come down before we took down Sabatino?
Kate: It did.
Julia: Well if you really wanna get the bat's attention.
Luke: Bring down the plane before he gets taken down.
Julia: And he can put his next plan into motion.
Kate: He knew we would be to busy working on trying to figure out who brought down their plane.
Luke: And it worked.
Kate: Until he approached Reagan and asked her to work for him.
Luke: Which of course wasn't to bright given how she was our in to finally bring the bastard down.
Kate: Yeah.
Julia: But since we know he's been in contact with August.
Kate: There's a very big chance that he'll call him up and find out what else they can do.
Julia: And if he does.
Kate: I have a feeling we're not gonna like where it's gonna go.

(They both look at her and then look off annoyed. Over the next couple of days the Bat team and the Crows continue to look into the plane crash that killed three out

of the four and the time four member of Evermoist including Beca Mitchell. As their looking into it Mark continues to keep his distance and the more he keeps it the

more worried his friends become for him and the longer he stays away from them the more they wonder if he hasn't officially gone back into the life that he had

worked so hard to get out of with Mark remaining at distance Reagan thought she'd take someone who Mark would love very much to see as she walked into his office

she saw him lying down on the couch with his arm draped over his eyes and she walked over to him and he looked at her.)

Reagan: Go ahead.

(He smiles at her.)

Victor: Daddy!

(He moves his arm away from his face and looks at them and his face lights up when he sees his son Reagan backs up and Mark gets up once he's up he walks over to

them.)

Mark: Here's my little man.

(He smiles at him as Mark takes him from her and holds him as he's holding him Mark smiles at her.)

Mark: Thank you.
Reagan: You're welcome.
Mark: How you doing baby boy?
Victor: Fine.
Mark: What's up?
Victor: I miss mommy.

(He smiles at him as he kisses his head then pulls away from it.)

Mark: I know you do baby boy so do i.

(He hugs him getting Mark to smile at him.)

Mark: Oh i love you so much baby boy.

(He smiles at Reagan again as he continues to hold his son in his arms.)

Reagan: We all miss them Mark.
Mark: I know that. It's just out of all of the heart ache I've gone through. He's one of the best things to come from it.
Reagan: I know that.
Mark: How's Gianna? She giving Ares hell?
Reagan: Yes she is. And in a lot of ways I think Ares enjoys it.
Mark: Is that true?
Victor: Yeah. She threw her spoon at her.
Mark: Oh really?
Victor: Yeah it was funny.

(He laughs at him as he kisses his head again then pulls away from it.)

Reagan: Anyway. I figured if anyone could put a smile back onto your face other then your fiance it be him.
Mark: And it worked having him here is making me feel a lot better.
Victor: You okay daddy?
Mark: I'm feeling much better now bud.
Victor: Okay.

(He smiles at him then pulls away from him.)

Victor: Aunt Reagan wants to take me on a trip.
Mark: Oh really?
Victor: Yeah.
Mark: To where?
Victor: To Tucson.

(Mark laughs at him.)

Mark: What the hell is in Tucson?

(He looks at Reagan and knows the look.)

Mark: You told him about Baggins?
Reagan: Maybe.
Mark: Honestly Vic.
Victor: What?
Mark: I think even though she's happily married to Aunt Ares.
Victor: Okay.
Mark: I think she's got a crush on the General Manager.

(She looks at him as they start laughing then they calm down.)

Victor: Yeah.
Mark: Yeah. Should we tell Aunt Ares?
Victor: No.

(He starts laughing at his face. Then calms down.)

Victor: What?
Mark: Nothing baby boy.
Victor: But her very pretty.
Mark: Yes she's very pretty. She's just as nice too.
Victor: Really?
Mark: Yeah. She'd like you.
Victor: She can't have me.

(Mark laughs at him again.)

Mark: Why not? Maybe she'll want to adopt you?
Victor: I yours.
Mark: Yes i know that.
Victor: So see she can't have me.
Mark: Your right. Your mother would hurt me if se was still around.
Victor: Yes. But i still wanna go to Tucson.
Mark: Why?
Victor: I wanna see the pretty lady.

(He looks at Reagan whose trying to keep from laughing.)

Mark: So do i. So I'll go and get everything set up with pilots okay.
Victor: Okay.

(He puts him down and walks over to the desk and picks his phone up once he has it he calls the pilots and talks to them about flying out of Gotham for a few days.

As he's talking with them Mark looks at the picture on his desk of him standing between all four Evermoist members and nearly loses it but is able to keep it together

then he hangs up with one of the pilots and puts the phone down.)

Mark: I'm guessing Ares is gonna wanna go?
Reagan: Probably not. She's gonna be going out of town for a couple of weeks with Santino so.
Mark: Oh okay.
Reagan: But I'll more an likely take Gianna with me so.
Mark: Okay. Why don't you take him home and get him so cloths we'll fly out tomorrow morning.
Reagan: Okay. And i would go home and see your fiancé. I'm sure he's just as worried about you Mark.
Mark: I know he is.
Reagan: Okay. Come on buddy.

(He gets off of the couch and walks out of the office as they walk out Mark sits down again.)

Later that night.

(Over at his penthouse he walks off of the elevator and out into the main part of the of the apartment as he walks out he puts his things down as someone walks up to him.)

Kate: Nice of you to come home.

(He looks at her and laughs.)

Mark: I know I've been distant.
Kate: You have been. And we all get it Mark.
Mark: I know you all do.
Kate: We all miss them and i know it's been said before.
Mark: It has been.
Kate: And it's gonna continue to be said. But Mark we can't change what happened to them. We can't bring them back doesn't matter how much we want them back.
Mark: I realize that. But the thing is.
Kate: What?
Mark: With the anniversary of their deaths coming up i can't help but feel more and more guilty that their all dead and that Victor will never get to see his mother again. And that's not fair to him.
Kate: No it's not. But you do have a fiancé who loves Victor like he was his own.
Mark: I know that.
Kate: So stop pushing him away and talk to him.
Mark: Why because you're so good at it?
Kate: I never said i was.
Mark: You Kane's are such pains. And yes I'm including your wife in there.

(She looks at him and laughs.)

Kate: Ouch.
Mark: See there is a benefit hiding away.
Kate: What's that?
Mark: I can think of a good come backs.
Kate: It wasn't that good.
Mark: Oh.
Kate: All I'm saying is that. We both have people who are there for us. Mary has me my dad and Sophie.
Mark: I know she does.
Kate: I have Sophie so if i don't want to talk to my dad or to Mary i can at least talk to her.
Mark: I know that.
Kate: Mark I'm not telling you to open up to people because i know that's not who you are because of the life you lead you did a lot of hiding of your feelings. But you're not in that life anymore. You do have other people who are willing to listen to you. You've got your family you have Reagan and you have the most important person to talk to.
Mark: Tyler!
Kate: Yeah. I mean i know you two didn't get a long at first.
Mark: Him and your father framed me for the murder of my uncle.
Kate: But then it turned out it was Daniel who had done that.
Mark: I know that.
Kate: Look I'm sure he's not pushing for you to open up Mark. But we all know how much he loves you.
Mark: And i love him i just don't know how to open up.
Kate: And like i said he won't force you too. It would just be nice to know you're talking to someone about what's going on in your head.
Mark: Yeah okay.
Kate: Are right. Now when he gets here actually talk to him and don't make me have to hurt you.

(He puts his hands up in surrender getting her to laugh at him as Julia walks off of the elevator getting them to look at her.)

Julia: Hey.
Mark: Hey.
Kate: What's up?
Julia: You remember how we've been looking more into the plane crash and into who shot and killed Ryan?

(Mark looks at her confused.)

Kate: Yeah. We've been thinking that there's more to why Ryan was killed.
Mark: You mean other her connection to me?
Kate: Yeah aside from that.
Mark: Okay. So what's up?
Julia: Me and Luke have been going through witness accounts for the night of Ryan's murder.
Mark: Okay.
Julia: And the more we look into this we start thinking that Sabatino might have a lot more riding on anyone being connected to you end up being killed.
Kate: Are you saying what i think you're saying.
Julia: If Johnny Sabatino really wants to screw with Mark some more.
Mark: He'll go after someone else i love.
Julia: Yes he would.
Kate: But who could he go after?

(Mark looks at her and realizes something.)

Mark: Tyler!

(He grabs out his phone and calls him as he's on the phone waiting for him to answer the very person he's trying to call is lying down in his own blood in the lobby of

the building then his phone picks up.)

Mark: Tyler!
Man: No it's not Tyler but he sure is good looking.

(Mark looks at Kate.)

Man: Too bad he won't be making it up to you.
Mark: What the hell are you talking about?
Man: Come down to the lobby lover boy.

(Then he hangs up and throws the phone down as he turns and walks off as Mark rushes off towards the elevator as he gets there he pushes for it to open as it opens

him along with Kate and Julia rush onto it with him and he quickly pushes for the lobby as he's waiting for it to get to the lobby. As it gets there the doors open and

they rush off and head towards where he is as they get to the steps leading down towards him Mark stops and looks at his friends.)

Mark: No.

Chapter Text

Mark: No.

(He rushes over to him as he gets there he quickly kneels down next to him and feels for a pulse feeling one he gives off a sign of relief.)

Mark: Tyler!

(As he continues to lie there Kate's on the phone with the Paramedics as Mark takes his jacket off and places it onto his back and tries to stop the bleeding.)

Julia: You know the voice on the other end?
Mark: No. I didn't know who it was.

(She nods her head at him. Later over at the hospital everyone's there waiting for news on Tyler as their waiting Mark's phone goes off he grabs it out to see who it is

seeing the name he mutes it and then puts the phone away as he remains there waiting for news on him. Over the next few hours they all sit and wait for news on

Tyler as their waiting Mark's phone keeps going off until he shuts it off and looks around annoyed and gets even more annoyed when he sees who walked and looked

Kate who looked just as annoyed.)

Kate: What the hell does he want?
Mark: Beats me.

(As he gets to them Mark looks at him like he wants to kill him but thinks twice about it as he sees Maxie with him.)

Kate: Play nice.
Mark: I'll do my best.

(She looks at him and laughs as he grabs out his phone to see whose calling him seeing the number he mutes it again then looks at Peter walking up to them.)

Mark: Oh look Kate it's the Nutcase and his fiancé.

(Kate looks at him trying to keep from laughing.)

Maxie: He's not a a nutcase.
Mark: No of course not. He just runs stories without a single piece of proof of what he's calming i did.

(He looks at him and then looks off.)

Mark: Say when was the last time you became so whipped that you can't see straight.

(He looks at him and goes to go after him only to have Kate push him back.)

Kate: Mark!

(He looks at her and laughs.)

Mark: Opps. Did i hurt the little girls feelings.
Peter: Are right that's enough.
Mark: Na it could never be enough.
Peter: Mark!
Mark: Why are you two even here?

(They both look at him and then look off.)

Maxie: We came because we heard about Tyler.
Mark: Oh so now he cares about someone who isn't him.

(Peter looks at him and then looks off.)

Maxie: Mark come on.
Mark: I'm sorry but I'm finding it very hard to believe that Peter cares about anyone else but himself.

(She looks at him and can tell that the three our of the four Evermoist members deaths including Ryan's is still getting to him.)

Maxie: Look whatever it is you're thinking he had nothing to do with it.
Mark: And just what do you think I'm thinking Maxie? Weather or not he had a plane carrying a number of my friends on it one of which just happens to be the mother my son. Or the fact that Ryan Wilder is now dead.

(She looks at him and then looks off.)

Mark: You know Maxie you were at one point the smartest person I've ever met. But now.
Maxie: What?
Mark: You're so damn blinded by this prick that you can't see that he's no better then Johnny was.

(She looks at him and then looks off.)

Mark: You know now that i think about it.
Maxie: What?
Mark: You're both meant for each other. Get the hell out and if i ever see you again August all beats are off.
Peter: What the hell is that supposed to mean?
Mark: It means if my fiancé dies then so Maxie's.

(He looks at him and then looks off.)

Kate: Mark!
Mark: No. I want them both out.
Kate: It's a public hospital.
Mark: Yeah and.
Kate: You can't just kick people out of it.
Mark: Yeah well unless they have someone here i don't want them around. More importantly him.

(Then he turns and walks off as he walks off both Maxie and Peter remain there as Kate looks around annoyed by them being here but can't do anything.)

Sophie: Babe.

(She looks at her and then looks off.)

Kate: Maxie maybe you two should leave. Him being here right now isn't the brightest idea.

(She nods her head at her as they both turn and walk off as Kate looks over at Mark whose got his head down annoyed. Then they see a little boy run into the hospital and over to Mark.)

Victor: Daddy!

(Mark looks up at him and smiles as he gets up and walks over to him as he gets to him Mark picks him up and holds him.)

Mark: Hey my sweet boy.
Victor: Hi. Aunt Reagan and Ares heard about.
Mark: Yeah baby he's in surgery.
Victor: He going to be okay?
Mark: I don't know. I sure hope so.
Victor: I don't want him to die.
Mark: I don't either. You wanna sit with me?
Victor: Yeah.

(They sit down and Mark spends time with his son as they wait for news on Tyler. As their waiting Peter standing off on his own annoyed as Mark kisses his little boy's

head then pulls away from it.)

Mark: I love you buddy.

(He looks at him and smiles which gets him to laugh as his phone goes off he grabs it out to see who it is seeing the number he answers it.)

Mark: Hey Cal.
Calamity: Hey. How is he?
Mark: He's still in surgery.
Calamity: Well me and Beca are on the way there so.
Mark: Okay just be careful.
Calamity: We will be.
Mark: And just be warned.
Calamity: What?
Mark: Peter August is here with Maxie.

(She looks off annoyed.)

Calamity: Okay thanks for the warning.
Mark: You're welcome.
Calamity: You are right?
Mark: Yeah I'm just trying not to lose it.
Calamity: I can tell.
Mark: Plus i have Victor here so I'll be just fine.
Calamity: Can i talk to him.
Mark: Yeah.

(He hands the phone to him and he smiles at whose on the phone then starts talking to her which makes him and Kate start laughing at him.)

Kate: He really does miss them?
Mark: Yes he does.
Kate: He's gonna pull through this Mark.
Mark: I know he will. I love him so much Kate. I can't lose him. Not the same way i lost Vera.
Kate: Yeah i know.
Mark: I don't think i could handle it if i lost him too. I mean i do have Victor and he's the greatest thing that came out of my time with Vera.
Kate: Yeah I'm sure he is.
Mark: I mean you Kate girls are good looking so there's that.

(Kate laughs at him. Then Victor hands the phone back to Mark after hanging up with Calamity then looks at his father and smiles at him.)

Victor: Were you talking about Mommy?
Mark: Yeah we were.
Victor: Daddy i wanna go and see her.
Mark: Okay.

(He kisses his head then pulls away from it. Then Mark sees the doctor come out and he gets up as he gets up he hands Victor over to Kate who takes him and holds

him as Mark walks over to him and they start talking about Tyler. As their talking Victor is playing with Kate's wedding ring getting her to smile at him.)

Victor: It pretty.
Kate: Yeah it is.

(She kisses his head then pulls away from it as he looks at her and smiles which gets her to smile at him. As he finishes up with his conversation with the doctor Mark walks off back towards everyone.)

Kate: How is he?
Mark: He made it through his surgery and they believe that if he makes it the next twenty-four to forty-eight hours he'll make a full recovery.
Sophie: Oh thank god.
Mark: Yeah.
Kate: Can we see him?
Mark: He's in recovery right now. But he said once he's set up into a room he'd come out and get us so that we can go back and see him.
Sophie: Okay.
Mark: Are right.
Sophie: You are right?
Mark: As long as Tyler's okay. I'll be just fine.
Sophie: Okay.
Mark: Are right.

(He walks over to his son and tells him the same thing as he finishes he smiles at him getting them to laugh.)

Victor: Hi.
Mark: Hi. What you doing?
Victor: Being cute.

(They start laughing at him then calm down.)

Mark: Yeah you're very cute.
Victor: Thank you. I know i am.

(He looks at Kate who falls off of her seat laughing at him.)

Mark: You're too much like your aunt it's scary.

(He starts laughing as Mark hands him over to Sophie who takes him and Mark starts picking on Kate getting her to move around once he finishes her walks over to

his son and gets him in the sides getting him to lean into Sophie whose trying to keep from laughing. Then he stops.)

An hour later.

(Up in Tyler's room Mark's sitting by his bed side as he's sitting there he's thinking about the night they slept together before all hell broke loose during the USO tour.)

Flashback to four years ago.

(Over in Rome Mark's walking back into his room after the party down in the hotel's bar as he's walking in he one of his friends say something that gets him to laugh.)

Mark: Screw off Walp.

(He starts laughing as Mark looks at him.)

Mark: I'm telling Chloe.
Chicago: Oh.

(He walks off as Mark closes the door and then looks towards his bed and gets annoyed.)

Mark: Agent Dim wit.

(Tyler looks at him and laughs off the annoyance.)

Tyler: Really?
Mark: Sorry had too. What the hell do you want?
Tyler: I just came to see you.

(Mark looks at him confused.)

Mark: Okay. Why?
Tyler: Look i know me and the commander haven't been very welcoming of you.
Mark: You haven't in fact you two have gone as far as to make my life hell. When i haven't done a thing to the Crows.
Tyler: Yeah i know. And as much as i would love to apologize for being an ass. I can't.
Mark: Can't or won't.
Tyler: Let me go with that one.

(They start laughing then calm down.)

Mark: Look Tyler.
Tyler: I know you're not as bad as the commander says you are. I really do know that. It's just as a husband i can't help but feel like.
Mark: What? Like I'm going to steal your wife.
Tyler: What no. I'm not even really worried about losing her. I know she's still in love with Kate I'm not a complete idiot.
Mark: Oh well at least we've got that settled. Seriously what the hell do you want?

(Tyler looks at him and without thinking he kisses him catching Mark off guard as the kiss continues Mark pushes his coat off of him once it's off he throws it onto the

table behind him once it's on there he takes his tie off of him and throws that onto the desk once it's on there he pulls away from him and then pushes him back onto

the bed getting him to smile at him as he lands Mark gets onto the bed and pushes his shirt up getting Tyler to look up at him as he's looking at him Mark runs his

hands over his stomach getting him to smile at him then Mark kisses it getting Tyler to put his head back down again As he's kissing on his stomach Tyler looks up at

him and then puts his head back down in enjoyment. As Mark's kiss on his stomach continues he moves his lips to his bellybutton getting Tyler to look up at him

again then he puts his head down again. As he puts his head down he feels him run his tongue over it getting him to smile a little at it. Mark pulls away from Tyler's

Bellybutton and kisses his underbelly getting Tyler to lean into his kiss which gets him to smile in it then he pulls away from it and kisses his Bellybutton again getting

Mark: He seems to be doing okay right now but.
Kate: What?
Mark: Kate there's no telling if he'll make it.
Kate: Hey.
Mark: I love him Kate and seeing him like this scares the hell out of me.
Kate: I hear ya.
Mark: Me and Reagan were supposed to take Victor and go into Tucson tomorrow.
Kate: I know. She told us. I guess plans change?
Mark: Yes they do.
Kate: He's gonna pull through this.
Mark: I know he will.

(She looks at him and can see the look on his face.)

Kate: Oh.
Mark: Yeah. So there's that.

(She laughs at him.)

Kate: And here we all thought you loved my sister.
Mark: I did love her. But the thing is.
Kate: No i get it. You couldn't really do anything due to well.
Mark: Yeah. I'm trying my hardest not to think about how much him and your dad hated me back then.
Kate: I can tell.

(He laughs at her.)

Mark: I loved Vera Kate i really did.
Kate: I know you did and it showed whenever you looked at her. Hell it still shows Mark.
Mark: It does. She meant so much to me back then and in a lot of ways she still does.
Kate: She meant a lot to all of us.
Mark: Yeah. But the thing that annoys me more is that.
Kate: What?
Mark: Is that Victor's never going to see his mother again. I mean he was just a baby when she died Kate.

(She rushes off to go and find one.)

Mark: Hey.
Tyler: Hey.

(He kisses his head then pulls away from it as Kate walks back into the room with his doctor and he walks away from him so that he can look him over. Out in the

hallway Mark's leaning against the wall since Kate had walked off to go and find her father to tell him that Tyler is awake. As he's standing there he thinks back to

while Daniel's men had him in a back room and were doing things to him only to have Daniel have Tyler kiss on him.)

Flashback to a year ago.

(Over at the warehouse where Daniel and his men have Mark and the other's in the back room Tyler's looking at Mark like he doesn't know what to do or say as Daniel

points his weapon at him.)

Daniel: Your choice.

(Tyler pushes both of his shirts up and runs his hand over his stomach getting Mark to look up at him then he Leans in and kisses it getting Mark to put his head back

down again as he's kissing on his stomach Mark looks up at him and then puts his head back down trying to keep from enjoying it. As Tyler's kiss on his stomach

continues he moves his lips to his bellybutton getting Mark to look up at him again then he puts his head down again. As he puts his head down he feels him run his

tongue over it getting him to smile a little at it. Daniel satisfied with what Tyler's doing grabs his men and they walk out of the room as they walk out he closes the

door once it's closed Tyler pulls away from Mark's Bellybutton and kisses his underbelly getting Mark to lean into his kiss which gets him to smile in it then he pulls

away from it and kisses his Bellybutton again getting Mark to moan from the feel of his lips on it again then he pulls away from it the stands up as he pulls Mark up.)

(Tyler looks at him as Mark looks at him. As he grabs him into him.)

Tyler: What you doing?
Mark: Something I've been wanting to do since we broke up.

Mark: I miss you Tyler.
Tyler: Really?
Mark: Really.
Tyler: What about?
Mark: I love her i do. And I'm also going to. But.
Tyler: What?
Mark: It's very hard to be with someone else when I'm falling in love with you.

(He looked at him and smiled. End of flashback. Mark's just coming out of his thoughts again as the doctor walks out to talk to him.)

Mark: How is he?
Doctor: He's okay. He's going to be in some pain but that's to be expected after being shot in the back.
Mark: Will he ever walk again?
Doctor: Won't know if he'll ever walk again until the swallowing's gone down.
Mark: Okay thanks doc.
Doctor: Anytime. And you're a lucky man.
Mark: I like to think so.

(He smiles at him as he walks off and Mark walks back into the room and over to him.)

Mark: Hey handsome.

(He looks at him and smiles.)

Tyler: Hey.
Mark: How you feel?
Tyler: Like i was run over by a bus.

(He kisses him then pulls away from him.)

Mark: Love you.

(He smiles at him as Mark taps Jacob's shoulder getting him to smile at him as him and Kate walk out of the room and he tells her what the doctor told him.)

Kate: So they don't know if he'll ever walk again?
Mark: No they don't.
Kate: Damn.
Mark: Yeah.
Kate: You gonna be okay with him not being able to walk?
Mark: Yeah I'll be fine with it. I mean i love him and I'm not gonna turn my back on him because he's in a wheel chair. I'm gonna marry him no matter what.

(Then Mark's phone goes off he grabs it out to see who it is seeing the number he answers it.)

Mark: Beca?
Beca: Hi.
Mark: Hi. What's up?
Beca: Mark you and Kate better come down to the Hold up.
