My take on the events of the last ep of Chuck. Like all of us we have our own mixed emotions of that ep – I felt that there were a lot of hits and misses. So I am venturing out to create my own version. I hope that you like it – I might even continue to indulge in other chapters. I can't leave them on the beach can I? Anyways I just wrote this out of respect to the show – it has not been looked over b/c I didn't really care to – also I had to give MRW a break lol – Please read and review – In the end I don't own Chuck!
Can fate bring us back
Chuck dreaded the walk from Ellie's. He knew that his life had changed, but would it change even more once he opened that door to their apartment. Did Chuck even have the right to still call it 'their' place. Chuck paused at the door and the sensed that he wasn't alone. This was confirmed by a voice that was so sweet, so safe, and so sincere but it wasn't the same. Chuck slowly turned around and for thousands of times before that he loved looking at that image that stood at the entrance. Every time Sarah came by their talks helped shaped their existence. From the several attempted break-ups by the fountain and Sarah telling him to keep his feelings to himself because he was now a spy. All made him more determine to win her heart (again and again.) He did it before and he was determined to do it again.
Chuck listened as Sarah told him that she believed everything that he had told her. She knew that what they had was real. But the sad part was she didn't feel what Chuck felt for her. Sarah painfully told Chuck that she needed to find herself after Quinn took her memories. She needed to leave, and that was the only thing Sarah knew how to do – she was a spy and would always be a spy. Even though Chuck had laid Sarah's inner spy to rest, all was dug up and all remained were a few scattered memories but not enough to make her stay.
Sarah painfully said her goodbyes – she knew by the look in Chuck's eye that it hurt her to say those words but it hurt him even more to hear them. Chuck thought that they had enough time. He could fix this! But Sarah wasn't really broken she was standing right in front of him. But it was her mind, the one thing, he just couldn't fix. Chuck said good-bye and watched Sarah walk away – this time he knew that she might never come back.
Sarah got into her car and placed her hands on the steering wheel and leaned forward. Her eyes flooded with tears. Why would she cry if she had no memories, why would one man like Chuck have such an affect on her. She couldn't walk back now, could she? Did she just make a big mistake? Chuck told her he loved her, she had the proof. She was a spy and spies needed proof. 'So what if I don't have feeling for him like he does for me? If I didn't have feeling why am I so emotional now? HE'S JUST A GUY WHO IS MY HUSBAND. This guy….'
Sarah wiped her tears as best as she could and started her car.
Chuck still blown away, had just watched his past, present and who knows what part of his future walk out of his life, for good? 'Am I crazy, I just let her walk away, what am I doing? I need to try and get her back.
Chuck ran out to the street as fast as he could as he rounded the corner he saw Sarah's taillights, he was too late.
Chuck walked around for hours not knowing what to do. He tried to call her but her phone had been disconnected. Casey told him that she hadn't left town yet. Ellie's words still rang in his ears that last time he tried to win her back from Shaw. Ellie told him that he didn't try hard enough. So when he tried, he had won her over, she came too him. Maybe, Chuck would have another chance. Chuck drove over to the hotel and banged on the door. Nothing, no answer. He left, his hopes diminishing. He walked to his car and a slight warm sea breeze had wakened his inner fight. He had one more shot. Chuck wasn't a man to literally hit a target but he was a man, a nerd for that matter that won the heart of one Sarah Walker. He heart warmed her just because of who he was. He knew one place that she would go. One place where it all started. He had one more chance.
Sarah drove for hours around places that seemed to have some resemblance to her past. She also remembered her daily logs that she had started the day she walked into the BuyMore. She knew how to play the game of being a spy – she knew that spies couldn't do one thing – that one thing that could jeopardize their thoughts and could compromise a mission. That one thing was that spies don't fall in love. The more she thought the more she tried to fight what she was feeling. Where these feelings hers? Or where they what she had heard, seen, in the past few weeks after the train mission. She was smart, she was the best, but could she actually have done her job that good. So good that this life was created, and have no feelings what so ever?
Sarah stopped the car, turned the ignition off. She didn't recall how she got there. It like a force had driven the car there for her. She wiped the last tear she thought and got out. The sun was slowly creeping up through the horizon. The night's coolness was slowly heating up a new day, new life. She walked out towards the water, and sat down. She stared out to a world of blue. The water was so calm, yet active. It was peaceful but at the same time harsh. The waves crashed the matted sand and smooth it out at the same time. Her thoughts were quickly snatched up by the waves; she didn't know that she was being watched. For a spy she failed miserably this time anyways.
Chuck ran to the edge of the tall grass and scanned the beach to his left then his eyes trail down to his right where he saw her. He wondered if she had – had the same feelings when she was staring at him 5 years ago – he always loved the fact that she had fallen in love him that night. He guessed that he too had fallen for her as well. He tried to gain up enough courage to venture out to her. But he decided to just watch her – for a little while even if this was all he was given – he wasn't going to take it for granted. The sun's warmth felt like a warm tug that was urging him to go out there. Chuck wiped his sweaty hands on his pants and got up. Dusted his pants off and slowly started his decent. God only knew what would take place after this. He knew that fate had brought him here to this place, this place right now. Chuck continued his walk towards Sarah. Sarah was still unaware that she was being watch and that her knight in shining armour was once again coming to heart warm her. Chuck was a few metres away from her when something he couldn't explain awakened Sarah from her quiet moment. Sarah took a breath and exhaled and at that same exact time she turned to her left and saw Chuck standing there. Whatever powers were there, 'Chuck would have said something nerdy right about now – Why would I know that? Sarah thought to herself.
Chuck waited for her to make the next move. She could do two things maybe three Chuck thought to himself. She could swim out to sea, she was a good swimmer (He remembered Thailand and the Giant Shemale mission) She could run either to her left or run back to the road (she was a good runner even in high heels) OR she could walk to him. Chuck was hoping that it didn't consist of her running or swimming away.
Sarah got up and looked at her options, run, swim OR walk over to Chuck. She knew that the other options would get her out of there and she would start a new life without him. Or she could go to him and take it from there. Sarah knew that her past was not the best – It didn't offer much of anything but from what she had observed and personally experienced. A life with Chuck could be something she could get use to again. She knew she was again starting to have feelings for him. Did she want to start with that?
Sarah turned and faced Chuck. Chuck waited and watched. Sarah looked up at a man that would have done anything for her over and over again. More than Bryce more than any mark she had to deal with. Chuck was her family or the closest definition of a family. Sarah knew that when her biological family betrayed her - her surrogate family was there for her. Chuck's family was there for her. Her new family was there for her and always would be.
Sarah walked a few steps closer. Chuck didn't want to get too excited but she didn't go for a swim. That was 1 out of 3. Chuck took a small step towards Sarah. Each painful step felt like eternity – she was so close but yet so far. Sarah continued her walk – each of her steps were one step closer to a life she wasn't sure about but was willing to give it a try. Chuck looked up and saw that she had stopped in her path. Chuck felt that she was going to run. He closed his eyes and with defeat he gave up, he tried. As he opened his eyes to see that he was right. There, Sarah stood facing him. She had placed her hands on either side of his face. She knew that this moment was like déjà vu but she didn't care. She brought her lips towards Chucks. There lips were like magnets that were separated by the earth's gravitational forces and brought back home to where they belonged. Chuck grabbed Sarah and with the strength he had left and held her in his arms. Their lips danced, their feelings ignited the passion that was and would always be. Kisses don't lie when other things do. Chuck had found his Sarah and Sarah had found what she had once lost but fate had brought it back to her.
