Summary: Matt calls his ex-wife. Epilogue to my random MattMohinder ficset.



Epilogue

"Hello?"

"Janice, it's me."

"Oh, Matt, hi. How've you been?"

"Good, good. How are you feeling? How's the baby?"

"We're doing well. Had another ultrasound yesterday. He's growing. Two pounds now."

"Wow."

"So, what's new with you?"

"Um, not much. I made detective."

"Oh, Matt! Congratulations. You really deserve it."

"Thanks. That means a lot."

"..."

"Look, Janice? There's something I think you ought to know."

"...Oh?"

"Yeah. I'm, uh, seeing someone."

"...Oh. Is it... serious?"

"...yeah. I think it is."

"Well. That didn't take long."

"I didn't really mean for it to happen. It just did. It was kind of.. unexpected."

"I... see."

"Look. This doesn't change anything, OK? I'm still going to be there for our baby. You've got to know that, at least."

"..."

"C'mon, Jan. Don't be this way."

"I know. I'm just feeling sorry for myself. It doesn't seem fair, that's all."

"I know. It isn't, really. But that's how it is."

"I'm sorry."

"Don't be."

"Well, I hope this new person in your life is good to you."

"He is."

"...What?"

"..."

"Oh. Oh, my God. Matt, you're not-- Oh, God! I knew I couldn't figure you out, but..."

"Jan. Janice. Listen. Listen to me."

"I turned you! Oh, God, I can't believe it! I turned you! How could this happen!?"

"Janice! You're wrong! It's not like that..."

"...It isn't?"

"...Well, yeah, it kind of is, but..."

"Oh, GOD! My mother was right! I should have stayed away from men who play with guns all day..."

"Janice!"

"I should go to a convent and lock mself away. For the sake of the human race! I'm a turner!"

"I'm telling you, it's..."

"Or have you always been this way? You bastard! Were you using me this whole time? How could you? Did you marry me so you'd look more respectable? Were you going to seedy bars all those nights I thought you were on patrol?"

"JANICE!"

"...What?"

"I married you because I loved you."

"Don't lie to me!"

"I'm not lying! I fell in love with you, I married you, we're having a baby together! That will never change! No matter what, I will always care for you. And I love this baby so much already. All two pounds of it."

"...heh."

"Please. Don't ever doubt that what we had was real. Our kid's living proof of it."

"...It's just that I sometimes think, what if this thing hadn't happened to you? If you couldn't... do what you do, maybe we could have made it."

"Would we have, though? Really? We were in trouble a long time before I found out what... what I could do."

"And what I did."

"I wasn't going to say that."

"You didn't have to. Oh, Matt, how could I have gotten things so wrong?"

"You know, Jan, this... new person in my life... he says to me that everything happens for a reason."

"Huh?"

"He's a scientist. A geneticist. And he studies people like me. Who have... abilities. If it hadn't been for that, we might never have met."

"Matt, this isn't helping."

"Wait. Just listen. He says he doesn't know if it's fate or God or coincidence, but he has trouble believing that it's all just random. And I think I agree with him. I think... that there's a reason we had to go through this. Maybe we just don't know what it is right now."

"..."

"...Try and have faith in that, Jan. Someday a time will come that you'll understand why you had to feel this way. You can be angry at me, you can hate me, but don't give up on yourself. You're a good woman and a good person. And you're going to be a great mother."

"...You sound different, Matt."

"How do you mean?"

"I don't know. You sound wiser. This friend... or boyfriend... of yours must be smart."

"Well, he is a scientist."

"Hm. Is he handsome?"

"Actually? Yeah. He's Indian. Tall and dark and all of that."

"Now I'm even more jealous."

"I'm sorry. I don't mean to rub it in."

"I know. But you know something, Matt? You also sound happy."

"...I think I am."

"...Then I'm happy for you."

"Thanks, Janice."

"You're welcome."

"So, um, Jan? There's one more thing..."

"?"

"We kind of ... have a kind of... daughter."

"..."

"Janice? Hello?"

--the end, for real this time!
