[Boone walks up to the door of Charlie and Claire's house and knocks. He had felt really bad about being so short with his friend and felt an apology was due. He's carrying a 6 pack of Dharma Beer in hand, a kind of birthday/apology gift.]

*Charlie was looking over the ornaments for the tree that was sitting in the spot he and Claire had picked out for it earlier when he heard the knock on the door. He placed the ornaments back in their container and went to answer the door. He's surprised to see you there with the beer*

Boone, hey mate. What can I do for you?
ifoundsomepens: smile with smirkifoundsomepens on December 11th, 2009 06:22 pm (UTC)
[He lifts the beer up to his face, smiling.]
Happy belated birthday!
Mind if I come in?
notdeadbuthere: happy grinnotdeadbuthere on December 11th, 2009 06:24 pm (UTC)
Hey thanks! Come on in. Happy birthday to you too. Would you like some cake? Claire and I managed to get over the cute and cut it last night.

*laughs and steps aside so you can enter*
ifoundsomepens: Laugh cuterifoundsomepens on December 11th, 2009 06:29 pm (UTC)
[Boone laughs at the mention of cake, it makes him think of the one that he and Alex burned. Fond memories. He takes a step inside and passes Charlie the beer.]
Sounds like you two had some fun, I'll take a slice.
notdeadbuthere: mischievous charlienotdeadbuthere on December 11th, 2009 06:42 pm (UTC)
Yeah, she's absolutely amazing. If you had told me when we first crashed here that I'd be engaged to her in five years time, I wouldn't have believed you.

*laughs*

*Goes into the kitchen for a minute and returns with a slice of the cake Claire had made*

She's the best thing that's ever happened to me.
ifoundsomepens: Smileifoundsomepens on December 11th, 2009 06:45 pm (UTC)
[He takes the cake from Charlie.]
Thanks man.
It's funny how life ended up changing for the better here, isn't it?

I'm glad you two are so happy together.
notdeadbuthere: Nostalgicnotdeadbuthere on December 11th, 2009 06:49 pm (UTC)
Yeah. This time five years ago, I was trying to avoid my death just to go to it gladly, thinking I was saving Claire and Aaron...getting them off this island...and now here I am back and more happy than I ever could have been.

And I'm glad that you found happiness with Alex. It's good to see you happy like this. You two are good for each other.
ifoundsomepens: Eye Contactifoundsomepens on December 11th, 2009 06:58 pm (UTC)
Thanks man, I never thought life'd end up this way... you know? I'm glad it did, but sometimes I'm a little amazed.

Speaking of Aaron, what was he like? I died the day he was born so... never really got the chance to get to know him. You know?
notdeadbuthere: happy grinnotdeadbuthere on December 11th, 2009 07:11 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I know. I thought the closest I would ever get to Claire would be best friend. But, she really loves me back. And I didn't need to die for that to happen...

*Smiles happily at the thought of Aaron*

Boone, you would have loved him. He was the sweetest baby. He wasn't too fussy and he loved for me to sing to him and he was crazy about Sawyer's voice. Once Claire had become overwhelmed so I took care of him and he wouldn't stop crying for anything. Then Sawyer came along and said something and he completely stopped crying. So I had Sawyer sit and read to him until he fell asleep. That was the first time I saw Sawyer be anything but snarly.

*laughs*

I think Aaron brought out the best in everyone that knew him...

[Boone laughs.]
He sounds like he was a good kid, hopefully I'll get to meet him someday.
notdeadbuthere: relaxing/opennotdeadbuthere on December 11th, 2009 07:19 pm (UTC)
From what Kate told me, he's still rather amazing.

*Smiles sadly*

I hope so, too mate. I never did get it when I heard mean talk about how much they loved their kids...not until Aaron. He's not even mine and I still think of him as my son, you know? I'd do anything to see him again...and to have a child of my own with Claire...but I guess that'll never happen, unless we leave the island.
ifoundsomepens: Lookin' at chuifoundsomepens on December 11th, 2009 07:32 pm (UTC)
It's cool to here you say things like that, everybody changed so much after I uh, kicked the bucket.
[He looks confused for a second.]
Why would you need to leave the island to have a kid? Alex was raised here, and she ended up perfectly fine.
notdeadbuthere: Thinking about itnotdeadbuthere on December 11th, 2009 07:37 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I was kind of a mess before you died.

*laughs*

Wow, looking back, that's like a whole different person. It's a wonder you guys even talked to me at all.

Didn't Alex or Juliet tell you? Women on the island can't have babies. They die. That's the reason why Juliet was brought here. She was supposed to figure out why women can't carry to term and live and fix it. It was the reason Claire was taken. Her and the baby was in danger, so instead of just coming to us like normal people and informing us of what was going on, they kidnapped her instead.

So unless something changes, there will be no little Charlies running around the place.
ifoundsomepens: Dismissiveifoundsomepens on December 11th, 2009 07:45 pm (UTC)
No, nobody told me anything about that.
[He stays quiet, lost in his own thoughts. His jaw clenches and he can feel anger bubbling in his stomach. Why didn't anybody feel like informing him about this? What else had they neglected to tell him? Come to think of it, why the hell was Ben walking around after what he did to him? So they thought they could just pull a veil over his eyes and everything would be fine, everything would be okay? They seriously thought he was that dumb? He grips the fabric of his jeans tightly, knuckles whitening. Boone felt betrayed, and furious. He trusted these people, relied on them for their help... and this happened.]

*Feels guilty. Maybe he shouldn't have said anything...but you were going to find out eventually...*

*Has no idea what to say*

Bloody hell, I didn't know you didn't know...

*Frowns*
