Texas vs. Cahill (the missing scenes)
Alex’s apartment, after returning from the art gallery.
Alex unlocked her apartment door, and walked inside. Walker followed her in but only partial closed the door. He pulled her into an embrace, and then kissed her gently on the lips.
“I know that you have a busy day tomorrow so I had better be going so you can get some sleep.”
Alex frowned slightly and pulled out of his embrace. She took a step forward and closed the door. She turned back to Walker and wrapped one hand around the back of his neck while she stroked his beard with her other hand.
“Well you know I always sleep better when you are next to me” she said smiling provocatively.
“Alex I can’t spend the night. I have to get home. The horses haven’t been fed yet. Besides you know it never works when we try to stay together during the week.”
Alex couldn’t help but smile at the truth of his last statement. The few times that they had spent the night together during the week they became distracted trying to get ready the next morning and inevitably ended up being late for work.
“Alright” Alex regretfully relented “I’ll see you tomorrow. Thanks for going with me tonight.”
Walker gave her one last kiss and then left.
At the jail after she is beaten up
Walker waited impatiently inside the small room for them to bring Alex in to see him. Gordon had told him what had happened but it did not prepare him for the shock of seeing her bruised and swollen face.
“Alex, I’m so sorry. Your dad told me what happened. I don’t even understand why you were put in with the general population in the first place. Are you all right?”
“Yes, I’m a lot better now that you’re here”
He walked in front of her and placed his forehead against her’s. She pulled her head back so she could look into his eyes. “Walker I’m sorry that I never told you about Tony before.”
“I understand. It was something that you wanted to forget. I don’t blame you for not wanting to ever talk about.” He said putting his arms around her and lightly rubbing her back.
“But I’m the one who is always pushing you to be more open and talk more.” She protested.
“Alex, it’s okay. I understand and it’s not important now anyway. It’s my fault that all of this happened and that you’re here in the first place.”
“What?” Alex said surprised. “How in the world can you think any of this is your fault?”
“You wanted me to stay at your apartment the night of the murder. And if I had…well….if I had only….”
“Walker”, Alex said interrupting him. “None of this is your fault. Do you understand? I don’t want you to ever think that again.”
“But Alex, If only…” he trailed off
“Honey” she said taking his face into her hands. "We can’t live life thinking what if about every thing. Please don’t blame yourself. This is not your fault”.
He pulled her into an embrace and held her tight. “I love you so much” he whispered in her ear. He pulled his head forward and he started to kiss her but just then the prison matron came to the door to collect Alex.
“I love you too,” she said as she left the room.
Alex’s apartment after leaving C.D.’s the night Tillman is arrested
Alex walked into her apartment and stopped in the middle of the living room. She stood still just starring towards the bedroom.
“Alex, are you all right?" Walker said becoming concerned.
“Walker I don’t think I can stay here” She said turning to face him.
“Why don’t you come home with me tonight?”
“You don’t understand,” she said starting to cry. “I don’t think I can ever live here again, not after what happened.”
Walker took her hand and pulled her close to him. “Honey you can stay with me as long as you need to. Pack some clothes and we’ll go right now. You never even have to come back here at all if you don’t want to. After you find a new apartment I’ll arrange to have every thing moved for you.”
She nodded her head against his shoulder. “Thank-you, you are so sweet to me.”
Alex sighed as she stood in the foyer of Walker’s ranch house. “You know what I really want to do?"
“Take a shower with actual hot water.” She said smiling.
“The water was a little on the cold side in jail I guess.” He said laughing.
“Well you go ahead. I need to check on a couple of things and then I’ll be right up.”
Alex couldn’t believe just how good a shower could feel. The warm water felt incredible hitting her skin. She enjoyed it until the water started to run cold. She turned the water off and stepped out of the shower. As she finished drying herself off she felt Walker’s eyes on her. She looked up to find him wearing only gray gym shorts and standing just watching her. He took a few steps toward her. He looked up and down at her naked body admiring her beauty. She reached out and ran her fingertips lightly down his bare chest and stomach dropping off just as she reached the waistband of his shorts. They looked intently into each other’s eyes for a moment. Then he pulled her to him. She melted into his body. Of all the miserable things about being in jail having to be away from Walker had to be the worst. He began to run his hands up and down over her body. Finally reaching down and squeezing her firm buttocks and pulling her even closer to him. She could feel his growing arousal against her stomach. She reached down and tugged at his shorts causing them to fall to the bathroom floor. He stepped out of them and pushed them away with his foot.
His breath caught in this throat as Alex ran her hand up his bare inner thigh. He relished the feel of her body against his. He drew her lips into a deep, passion filled kiss. He gently massaged her breast with his hand causing Alex to moan with intense erotic pleasure. Every nerve ending in her body was tingling. Their need for each other nearing its peak Walker reached down and picked her up in his arms. He carried her to his bed, placing her on top of the cool crisp sheets. Then he slid in beside her. Walker pulled Alex on top on him. She began kissing his neck then his chest and continued to work her way down his body, bringing him incredible pleasure with each new movement. After she had worked her way down his body she then began working her way back up again. Reaching his lips she kissed him deeply. Suddenly he rolled, placing her underneath him. He then began to kiss her in much the same way she had pleasured him. It never failed to amaze Alex just how fabulous he could make her feel. He entered her with a strong steady stroke. He moved slowly at first but soon increased his speed, as her body demanded. Ripples of pleasure spread throughout each of their bodies. Until finally they reached the ultimate height and climaxed together. Walker withdrew and pulled Alex close beside him. She placed her head on his chest and draped her arm across his stomach. Soon they both drifted off into a contended and exhausted sleep.
Alex awoke feeling the most rested she had in a very long time. She reached over for Walker but found herself in bed alone. So she got up, put on one of Walker’s shirts and headed downstairs to find him. Halfway down the stairway she got a whiff of bacon frying.
“Good Morning” Walker greeted her smiling. He was placing pancakes, bacon and eggs on plates.
“Good Morning” she said as she gave him a quick hug and kiss. “This smells wonderful.”
Walker placed the plates on the table and they ate their breakfast making a little light conversation as they ate.
“That was really good. You know you could spoil me very easily.” She said as she stacked their plates to take them to the sink.
“I would certainly like to give it a try.” He said smiling and reached over and gave her a kiss on the tip of her nose.
“What time are you supposed to meet your dad?” Walker asked as they finishing the washing the dishes.
“11:00, I was hopping that you could drive me to the jail. Then after we see Alfre my dad could drop me off at my car and I could drive back here.”
"Okay, that should work out good. While you are gone I could catch up on a few chores around here. Then when you get back if you would like we can take the horses out for a ride.”
“That would be fun. Which is something I haven’t had very much of lately.” She looked at the clock above the oven. “I had better go and get dressed now. I don’t want to be late.”
Back at the ranch after Alex and Gordon see Alfre
“Hi” Walker said as he came into the living room. Alex was sitting on the couch looking at the newspaper. “How did everything go with Alfre and your dad?”
“Great my dad is going to represent her. I think he’ll be able to help her.”
“That’s good news. Why don’t you go change so we can get started on our ride? That is if you still want to go.”
“Yeah I still want to. But I wanted to finish looking at the classifieds first. I want to start apartment hunting tomorrow.”
“Alex” Walker said as he took the newspaper out of her hand and placed it on the coffee table. “I’ve been thinking about this why don’t you just stay here…permanently.”
“Are you asking me to move in with you?” Alex asked unsure she understood correctly.
“Well because I enjoy having you here and….if you’re here I know you’re safe.”
“Walker if it weren’t for what happened with Tony would you be asking me this?”
“No I guess not” he had to answer honestly.
“Maybe I will one day. But I don’t want it to be because something bad that has happened and you feel guilty or you think you need to protect me.” She said reaching for his hand.
“Well I really do enjoy having you here.”
“I know and I like being here. One day I would like to live here.” “And” she couldn’t help but add “Hopefully as your wife.”
“Oh well ah ..I…ah” Walker stammered desperately trying to find a quick way to change the subject… “What do you want to have for dinner?”
