Chapter 25 – Sara’s Letter

As Sara was being rushed in through the hallways of the hospital, Catherine booked her in at reception and went to find Gil.

Catherine knocked on Aaron’s room. Gil looked up to acknowledge her. She came in.

“They’ve taken her straight to surgery.”
“What happened?”
“She must of escaped…She went down one of the tunnels…There was a cave-in…I don’t know how long she was there…It’s bad.”
“Slow down Catherine, breathe.”

Tears had started to well up in her eyes.

Gil and Catherine left Aaron, so not to disturb him. They walked down to the waiting room. Catherine managed to fill him in on the 4 tunnels that needed searching.

“We split into 3 teams and started to search. We all felt a rumble. Logan, the rookie cop, had a near miss. We searched the Old Town. We didn’t find her there. All of us found the last tunnel and went down it. We found it blocked, Nick, Warrick and Logan went round while the rest of us started to dig. They finally reached the other end and started to dig. We don’t know how long she was under there.”

“What did the Paramedics say?”

“She has a strong pulse, but she’s un-responsive. She also has a broken leg and fractured 2 ribs. As they were getting her out of the ambulance, her breathing worsened, they said her lung was collapsing and wheeled her straight into surgery.”

“Please let her be ok.”

“Gil, she’s a fighter. I’m sure she’ll pull through.”

“I do hope your right…She’s been through enough in her life…I don’t know what would happen if she doesn’t.”

Just then a nurse came into the waiting room.

“Excuse me Mr Grissom. Your son is asking for you.”

“I need to be here!”

Catherine could see his heart was torn between the two most important people in his life and he didn’t know what to do.

“Gil, go to him. He needs you. I’ll get you when we know more.”

Grissom raced off down the corridor to his son.

When he reached his room, he saw 2 nurses trying to comfort him.

“Aaron, what’s wrong son?”

“I had a bad dream. I dreamt that the bad man came and got you as well. He had tied you and mum up and shot you both. I tried to stop him but I couldn’t.”

Grissom went over and gave Aaron a reassuring hug.

“It’s ok. The bad man is not going to hurt anyone any more.”

He wiped away his tears and sat on the bed with his arms around him.

An hour later

Brass, Nick, Warrick and Greg met up with Catherine in the waiting room.

“Any news?”
“Not yet.”
“Where is Gil?”
“Aaron needed him.”
“I’ll be back.”

Brass went to find his dear friend.

“How’s the little fella?”

“Getting there. Any news on Sara?”
“No, still in surgery. I found this outside your office before we left. I hadn’t had a chance to give it to you.”

Brass gave Gil a small white envelope.

“I’ll leave you to it.”

Brass went back to join the others in the waiting room.

Gil turned the envelope over, he recognised the hand writing immediately.


He opened the letter.

Sara’s letter

My dearest Gil,

I’d tried to find you after the briefing; but I couldn’t so I wrote you a letter instead. I’m truly sorry for leaving you that night, it was my mistake saying not to come after me, but I needed the space. I found it extremely hard to tell you I was carrying your child, which is why I didn’t come back; I wasn’t sure how you would of taken it. I now know that was a huge mistake. I want you to know that I love you. I’d never stopped loving you.

If something happens to me, please tell Aaron that I love him and it’s not his fault this happened, and Gil some advice.

Tell each other that you love them every chance you get. Look after each other always, no matter what happens in the future. Let Aaron be himself, even if you don’t like the decisions he’s made, he will learn.

I know you will be a great farther and role model for him. And I know the gang will help you, just ask them.

Although the time together has been short, my love for you is endless. I wish we had more time together so my heart would not hurt.

Always and Forever yours


Tears had started to fall from his eyes.

“Sara…I’m so sorry.”

Gil had not noticed Catherine in the doorway.

“Gil. The doctor is looking for you. I’ll stay with Aaron.”
“Thank you.”

He got up slowly not to disturb Aaron and went to the waiting room.

“Mr Grissom, Sara’s out of surgery. We had complications with the collapsed lung, but we managed to re-inflate it and it’s holding. She has re-fractured 2 of her ribs and a broken leg. She is also in a coma. We have moved her to Intensive Care. I’ll get someone to take you up there.”

“Thank you doctor.” Gil said in shock.

Intensive Care Unit

Gil was watching the nurse monitoring Sara. She was connected to about 3 machines and had wires and tubes attached to her. He finally went in.

Gil sat next to her and took her hand.

“Oh Sara. I’m so sorry. I wish you told me. We would have been ok. We would of worked out any problems.”

He kissed her hand lightly.

Gil had sat with her the remainder of the night. The team took it in turns to sit with them both. Nick had relieved Catherine so she could see Sara.

The team left slowly to go home and get much needed rest, except Catherine who stayed with Aaron.

Chapter 26 – Discharge

The doctor was pleased with Aaron’s progress through the night, he was allowed to go home. Gil had signed the relevant paperwork and he was ready.

Gil knelt down coming to eye level with Aaron.

“Before we go, I need to tell you what happened to the bad man and your mother.”
“Well, the bad man is dead and your mother was involved in a cave-in. She is in a coma. Do you want to see her before we go home?”

Aaron nodded. Gil took him to the ICU to see his mum. Grissom had told him not to be scared of what he saw; the machines and wires were helping her.

They had ended up staying for 3 hours; it was time to go home.

Aaron gave Sara a kiss and put his Teddy Bear next to her.

“He will keep you safe mummy.”

Grissom picked Aaron up and carried him to the car. They left to go home.

On the way home Gil had taken Aaron shopping, to redecorate one of the guest room for him. He had also called Catherine to meet them, to go clothes shopping. He didn’t need to ask her twice.

Chapter 27 – A Time For Change

The next morning, Aaron had woken up extra early. He had ran into his father’s room and jumped on the bed; startling him.

“Come on. You said we could make a start decorating my room.”
“That I did.”

After they had breakfast, they started to clear the room Aaron decided would be his.

“I think we may need reinforcements.” Gil gave Nick a call.

Nick arrived 40 minuets later and had brought Warrick with him.

“How’s Sara?”
“The same. We’re going to see her later.”

It didn’t take them long to finish clearing the room. They had put a drop cloth down and started to paint the walls.

Two hours later

“I think that’ll do today lads, thank you.”
“Any time Griss.” Warrick and Nick let them selves out.
“Well Aaron, time to get cleaned up, let’s go see your mother.”

As they arrived at Sara’s room, the doctor was waiting for them.

“What’s the matter?”
“I just wanted to update you. Her lung is holding unexpectedly well and she is breathing on her own now.”
“That’s great news. Do you know when she may come out of the coma?”
“No. It’s still a waiting game I’m afraid.”

Grissom and Aaron went in. They took up the same seats as before. Aaron told Sara what they did yesterday when they left her and what they had gotten up to today.

During their 3-hour stay, Greg and Brass had stopped by to see how she was doing.

Chapter – 28 Nightmares

The past week went by gradually, Gil and Aaron had spent the usual 3-hours with Sara everyday. They told her of the days events. They read to her and Gil filled her in on the gang and work.

That night on the way home a storm was brewing. Gil glanced at Aaron. He could see fear in his eyes.

“You ok son?”
“Yeah, it just reminds me of when I was tied up on the roof.”
“Your safe. You will always be safe.”

When they got home they had dinner, Gil taught Aaron to play chess. After 2 games Aaron got ready for bed, Gil sat with him on his bed and read to him until he was asleep.

Grissom had become very tired and decided to have an early night. He managed to fall asleep relatively easily.

Grissom’s dream

Gil’s dream started with him playing in a park with Aaron. He glanced over his shoulder at a woman sitting on a bench watching them. It was Sara, she was holding a baby, smiling sweetly back at him.

Grissom laid in bed smiling.

His thoughts suddenly changed to him standing outside a building. He was franticly looking for Sara, he saw her. She turned. He heard a gunshot. She fell. Gil ran over to her. There was a bullet hole on her chest. The bullet had gone straight through her, he checked her vitals, she was gone.

Images started flashing through his mind. It was a mix of Aaron tied to the flagpole, Sara in a coma, Sara walking toward the building. Then she reappeared, Natalie, the miniatures, Sara in the desert. He could hear her. She was calling him “Help me Gil!” Her cries were getting louder and louder, the images flashing quicker and quicker.

Gil shot up in bed, in a cold sweat. As he was trying to control his breathing something had caught his eye.

He slowly reached over to the draw of the bedside table and got his gun. He slowly got out of bed and walked to the bedroom door. He could hear someone on the other side. The door handle started to turn. Gil moved slightly away from the door as it opened.

Gil took a deep breath in.

“Daddy? Daddy!”

“Son what’s wrong? Why are you up this late?”
“I has a really bad dream, the storm woke me up.”

Gil hadn’t even noticed the fierce storm outside.

“Why do you have a gun?”

“I was checking something out. I thought I might have needed it.”

Gil scooped Aaron up and placed him on the bed. He put the gun away and joined his son. He pulled him close and wrapped the quilt over them both. Gil stroked the side of his face until he was sound asleep.

Chapter 29 – Happy To Help

Gil had only gotten about another hour of sleep. He rang Catherine to come over and look after Aaron. He hadn’t realised it was 5am and her first day off after six straight days and four double shifts.

When she arrived Gil had just finished making a pot of coffee. They sat at the breakfast-bar talking.

“You look like hell, Gil.”
“Mmm, sorry it was a rough night.”
“Aaron still having nightmares?”

They sat in silence for a while

“A penny for them?”
“He did have a nightmare, but so did I. When I woke I heard a noise outside my room. I got my gun. I forgot he was here. I could of shot him. I don’t know what I would of done. What would I say to Sara if I did?”

“Hay, you didn’t shoot him, he’s fine.” Catherine put her hand on his arm.

“But I could of. The nightmare I had felt so real. It stirred up what I buried, what I though I’ve dealt with. I though it was Natalie looking for Sara. I heard her calling me for help.”

“Calm down, you know she’s lock up.”

“I know. Thank you again for coming I didn’t realise what the time was when I called you. I won’t be long.”

“Take all the time you need Gil.”

Grissom left the house. He sat in his car for what felt like half an hour. He was collecting his thoughts, before he started the familiar journey to the hospital.

As he turned the car over, the radio came on. As he listened to the lyrics tears started to well up in his eyes.

Once again he pulled himself together and backed out of the drive.

Chapter 30 – The Sounds Of Death

As Grissom stepped out of the lift on the 8th floor, doctors and nurses where running about. He didn’t take any notice what was going on. He walked through the familiar corridors to Sara’s room.

Just as he rounded the corner he could hear the alarms going off in one of the rooms.

He stopped dead in his tracks as he saw a nurse rushing into her room with a crash cart.

He ran the rest of the corridor to get to Sara. The ward sister stopped him entering.

“I need to get in!”
“You’ll have to wait outside sir. Let the doctor do his job.”

At the sound of her flat-lining “Sara!” Grissom yelled, his tears where in full flow.

The doctor now shocked her at 1800. Nothing. The nurse administered another shot of adrenaline and now 2000 Jules. Sara’s lifeless body contracted with the paddles, as she was shocked.

Beep, beep, beep.

“She’s back. Pulse is strong. Monitor her every 15 minuets.”

The doctor stepped outside to speak with Gil.

“What happed?”
“We’re not sure. We nearly lost her last night, but it didn’t take as long to get her back. We are doing tests, as soon as they are back I’ll let you know.”
“Thank you doctor.” Was all he could say.

Gil waited outside until the nurse had finished the first set of obs. He took his usual seat on her right. He placed his hand on top of hers. The tears where still falling.

He sat there for 20 minuets. Another nurse came and went with the next obs done. His tears had finally stopped.

“Oh Sara!” He tenderly kissed her hand.

“Promise me you won’t go anywhere. Aaron needs you…The team needs you…I need you.” “Please wake up Sara.” Gil put his head in his hands as he leaned on the bed. Tears started to flow again.

Gil was deep in thought. He didn’t feel a hand on his shoulder, nor did he feel it move to the top of his head. He only felt it when the fingers passed through his hair, and stopped to rub the top of his neck.

The touch was familiar to him. It sent forgotten electricity through his body, but it didn’t feel quite right. He placed his hand on the unknown hand on his neck. It felt so soft. Gil was almost afraid to look at whom it belonged to. As his eyes met the owner he let go of it immediately.

“What are you doing here?”
“I was passing. I thought you might need a friend, a shoulder, something.”

They both left the room to talk outside.

Neither one of them had noticed the twitching of Sara’s eyelids, as they left.

Sara’s eyes where open, she looked around the room to see where she was. “Hospital. How did I get here?” As she was scanning the environment, she caught sight of Gil. She was about to call for him, when she saw a hand brush the side of his face. Sara tried to move and get a better look; she felt a sharp pain in the side.

Sara had missed Gil step back with the unwanted affection. The unknown figure came into view.


This time Sara saw Gil having a heated discussion with her. Heather made another move for him, but Gil was too quick for her and side stepped out of the way.

As he walked into the room Sara caught the end of their conversation.

“Leave me alone. I don’t want anything to do you any more.”
He closed the door.

Gil’s thoughts were running. “Why was she here? What does she want? How did she find out? Why wait until now? Was I too hard on her”

He still hadn’t noticed Sara was awake. Sara could tell his mind was somewhere else.

“Gil…” She said not above a whisper. He didn’t hear her. She tried again.

She reached for his hand. He instinct-ly took it. He brought the back of her hand to his lips and kissed it then rested it against his cheek.

“I love you!”
“I love you too.”

He turned his head to face where the reply had come from. She was smiling sweetly at him. He stood up and gave her a light hug and kissed her on the forehead.

“I’ve missed you!”
“How long have I been here?”
“Two weeks.”
“Where’s Aaron?”
“Catherine is looking after him.”

A nurse entered to check Sara’s obs.

“Afternoon Miss Sidle, welcome back. I’ll get the doctor to come and see you.”

“Why is Aaron with Catherine? Is he not staying with you?”

“Hay, don’t work yourself up, one question at a time. Firstly Catherine is looking after him because I had a bad night and secondly they are at our house. Any more questions?”
“Yeah, why was she here?”

Before Gil could answer the doctor came in. He excused himself to make a phone call.

“Catherine, Gil…Sara’s awake…Yeah could you bring him and let the others know please…Thank you.”

“Miss Sidle, you have been in a coma for two weeks now. You have a broken leg and fractured two ribs; they have re-fractured from your last ordeal. We nearly lost you twice, we don’t know what caused this and waiting for the test results.”

Grissom walked back into the room.

“Do you have any questions?”
“Not at the moment doctor. Thank you.”

Gil poured Sara some water.

“I bet you’re thirsty!”
“Just a bit.” Sara drank three cups of water.
“I phoned Catherine to bring Aaron over, and to let the others know you are awake.”
“It’s going to be a busy night then.”

45 minuets later

Catherine came through the door with an excited Aaron; they found Gil on the bed reading with Sara leaning on him with her eyes closed.

“I thought you said she was awake!”
“She’s just resting Aaron. Were you good for Catherine?”

Aaron gave Gil a flash of the Sidle smile.

“He was no trouble at all.”
“Thank you for looking after him.”

Sara started to stir. Grissom put his book down and kissed the top of her head.

“You have some visitors.”

Sara moved so Grissom could get off the bed and Sara pulled herself up into a sitting position.

Aaron ran to Gil and hugged him. Gil picked him up and put him on the bed.

“What was that for?”
“I thought you left and I was not going to see you again.”
“Why did you think that?”
“You were not home when I woke, and you hadn’t come back.”
“I’m not going to leave you ever. I couldn’t sleep so I came to see your mother.”
“Do you promise not to ever leave?”
“I promise son.”

Sara’s eyes were tearing. Aaron had always shied away around people he didn’t know. She was shocked at how close he had become to Gil in just two weeks.

“Why are you crying mummy?”
“I’ve missed you baby.”

Aaron carefully hugged Sara; she kissed his forehead and put her arm around him. He snuggled into her body.

Catherine, Gil and Sara were making general chit chat when Brass turned up.

“How are you doing?”
“Not bad considering.”
“Sorry to bring this up but, I’ll need a statement when your discharged if not before.”
“I know it’s just routine.”

Brass and Gil left the girls to catch up while they got some coffee. Aaron had fallen to sleep next to Sara.

By the time Brass and Gil came back, Nick, Greg and Warrick had arrived. The nurse had been round to check on Sara, and told them she was only allowed three visitors at a time in the room. Catherine was waiting outside for Brass and Gil.

“Have you told her about last night?”
“Not yet, I will when I get a chance.”

They sat outside chatting and drinking their coffees.

“Jim, can you find out why and what she is doing back please?”

“No problem Gil. Tell Sara bye and I’ll see her sometime tomorrow.”
“Why and what who is back?”
“Just someone I saw.”

Before Catherine could ask her next question, Greg came out.

“Gil, Catherine I’ll see you later.”
“Bye Greg.” They both said together.
“I don’t think they’ll mind four of us in there.”

They both joined the others. They all sat and chatted for a further two hours.

Catherine and Warrick were the next to leave, Nick stayed another hour and a half.

“I best get Aaron home. You need to rest.”

“Stay awhile longer, I’ve missed you both.”
“Not for long though… I think this is the longest he has slept in the past two weeks. Do you want me to move him? You look uncomfortable.”
“No, I’m ok.”

Gil re-caped what he and Aaron had been doing the past two weeks.

The doctor came in.

“We still don’t know what was wrong, we will be doing some more tests tomorrow. You need to get some rest. Sorry Mr Grissom you’ll need to leave.”
“We were just saying our goodbyes.”

The doctor left the room.

“I wish you could stay longer.”
“We’ll be back first thing tomorrow.”

Sara kissed Aaron on the head, and said “Sweet dreams baby.” Gil gave Sara a kiss and picked up Aaron.

Chapter 31 – Last Night

As Sara woke the next day, she saw that Gil and Aaron were already there.

“How long have you been here?”

“About an hour.”
“Yeah, you sleep for ages. I don’t know why you are so tired, you been sleeping for two weeks. I told dad you wont be up till gone 10am you never are if you’re not doing anything or going anywhere.”
“Has the doctor been round?”
“Not yet.”

“So Aaron, Dad’s been telling me that you’ve been decorating.”
“Yes, I got to choose my room and we decorated it. Nick and Warrick helped to.”
“Did they now. Were they of any help?”
“Well after they finished messing around, they did a good job.”
“Sounds like them. Were they having bets on who could finish first?”
“Yeah, but dad and I won coz he and I were doing the same wall.”

The doctor came in.

“Miss Sidle we need to take you for your scan.”
“We’ll be right here when you get back.”

Sara had been gone for 40 minuets. When she finally came back to her room, she found Jim had joined the others.

“Do you feel up to make a statement today?”
“Yes, it will be fine. Gil can you take Aaron somewhere, I don’t want him to know what happened out there.”
“Aaron, let’s go for an ice-cream.”
“Yeah, do you want any bringing back?”
“No thank you baby.”

Gil and Aaron went to the park half a mile away from the hospital.

“Sorry to intrude, but I wanted all the details as fresh as I could, and to close the case.”
“Don’t worry I rather deal with it now then later.”

Sara gave Brass her statement. Brass went and got himself a coffee and more water for Sara. As they waited for Gil to return Sara had backed Jim into a corner.

“Jim, do you know why Heather is back?”
“Um, I didn’t know you knew?”
“I saw her talking to Gil yesterday, and he avoided the question.”
“Well, I’m looking into it but as of yet I don’t know why she has returned.”
“Did Gil ask you to look into it?”
“Yes. There’s nothing going on between them. She hasn’t been seen of or heard of until you came back.”

Brass breathed a sigh of relief when Aaron ran through the door.

“Where is your dad?”

“He’s coming.”
“Did you have fun?”
“Yes, we went to the park.”

Gil came in a little red in the face.

“Has he worn you out?”
“Yes, he has too much energy and that’s before the ice-cream. I don’t know where he gets it from!”

Sara’s cheeks blushed.

“Thank you for the statement. I best get it back to the station.”

“Bye Jim and Thanks.”

The doctor came back in.

“Miss Sidle, nothing has shown up on any of the tests or the scan. I would like to keep you in for another day, just to be safe, then you may go home.”
“Yes! I’ll start to get you packed.”
“Thank you doctor, I was starting to get board.”

Gil and Aaron sat on Sara’s bed while they played cards.

Aaron wanted Sara to read him a story. He curled up next to her, her arm around him as she read. Gil was sitting opposite admiring the view. It didn’t take Aaron long to fall asleep.

Chapter 32 – Time Is Not On Our Side

Sara had woken up early. “To days the day!” she thought. “I can finally get out of here.” She glanced at the clock on the wall it read 05:47. “Great 2 hours and 15 minuets before I can get discharged. Why do I always wake early when I don’t really have to?”

Sara was too excited to go back to sleep. She played cards, but got board very quickly, she read one of Aaron’s books but it didn’t help. She packed what little things Gil had brought in for her. She would of gotten changed, but Gil hadn’t brought her anything in yet.

She looked at the clock again it read 06:29.

Grissom’s House

Aaron had just woken up. He bounded into his fathers room, hoping he was not up yet. To his surprise Gil was not in bed. Aaron heard the shower turn off.

Gil stepped out of the bathroom with his towel around his waist. He went to the dresser and pulled out his underwear and socks, he then went to the wardrobe. As he reached for the handle he heard a faint giggle. He pulled open the door. Nothing. “I’m sure clothes don’t giggle?” he thought. He was standing there for about 15 minuets trying to decide what to wear.

Aaron who had gotten board from hiding under the bed crawled out.

“You know it doesn’t matter what you wear, she still loves you and is coming home with us.”

“You are right. What do you suggest then.”
“Um good question. You so need to update your clothes. You should ask Nick or Warrick to help you. Are we having a party for mum?”
“Yes the guys will be here at 8am to get things ready.”
“Well then you should wear your black slacks and your dark red shirt. What are you taking mum to wear?”
“I hadn’t thought that far. Maybe her joggers, going to have to be something that will fit over her cast.”
“She’s not going to like you for that. But it’ll have to do I guess.”
“Now young man, I think it’s time you got ready.”
“Do I get to come with you or can I stay here?”
“What would you like to do?”
“Stay here I think. I know she will be disappointed I’m not there to pick her up, but I want to shout surprise and see the look on her face.”
“Ok. Don’t be long getting ready, your breakfast will be done soon.”

Gil had timed it right, no sooner had they finished their breakfast the doorbell rang.

“I bet that’s Catherine and Warrick.”

Gil opened the door. “How did you know?”
“I’m psychic.”

Catherine came in first, leaving Warrick to carry all the bags in.

“What time are the others coming?”
“Nick’s just pulled up with Greg. Oh, and there’s Brass.”

“Right, I’m off. Aaron be good, I’ll ring when I’m leaving.”

Grissom didn’t wait for any sort of acknowledgement or reply he was gone. The team started to get everything ready.


By the time Gil had gotten to the hospital it was 09:05. “She’s going to kill me,” he thought as he hurried to Sara’s room.

He half opened the door and stuck his head in. Sara did not look too amused.

“Traffic” is all he said as he came through the door with a huge bunch of flowers.
“Aaron not with you?”
“Um…no I wanted to let him sleep…bad night.”

Gil changed the subject fast.

“Has the doctor been?”
“No! I’m still waiting.”
“Here, I brought you these to change into…Want a hand or two?” He said with a grin.
“I think I got it.”
“Didn’t know if your joggers would go over the cast, so I brought you a pair of mine, just in case.”

The doctor came in.

“Sorry for the delay, I had an emergency. Ok Miss Sidle, here is your paperwork. You will be off work for about 4 weeks; I have prescribed a mild pain relief just in case. You have an appointment in 2 weeks to see if you cast can come off. Do not do any heavy lifting, your ribs wont be able to take it. Any questions?”
“No, can’t think of anything.”
“Well look after yourself. Bye.”
“Bye, thank you for everything.”

Gil picked up her bag and followed her out of the hospital.

The car journey back was quiet. Gil kept glancing as Sara, sensing something was wrong. She was just staring out of the window.

“You’re very quiet, are you ok?”
“Yes, I’m fine just missed the outdoors.”
“I’m sorry I was late, apart from the traffic I did get up late.”
“It’s ok, I just wanted to get out of there, was starting to get cabin fever. I also woke up at stupid o’clock and could not get back to sleep.”
“Is there anywhere you want to go or just straight home?”
“I’d prefer to go home if that’s alright with you.”
“Whatever you want.”

Just before they set off Gil had text Catherine that they were on their way.

“Who’s looking after Aaron?”
“Nick is” “I hope the others have moved their cars” Gil thought.

Grissom’s House

“Ok people, they are just leaving. Greg! Actually Jim, could you start to unwrap the food. Greg that banner’s not straight, more to the left.”
“Why did we get a banner that said welcome home? She still hasn’t told us why she left or apologised. I had to pull loads of doubles coz we were short staffed.”
“Hay Greg, go find a bridge and get over it!”
“Well don’t you want to know?”
“I’m sure she’ll tell us when she’s ready.”
“Right Cath, the last of the balloons are in place.”
“Where is Aaron?”
“He’s keeping a look out for them.”
“Is he dressed and ready?”
“They’re here, they’re here!” Aaron came thundering down the stairs.
“Places everyone!”

Nick and Aaron his behind the sofa, Jim was behind the chair. Warrick and Catherine where behind the door, it was a bit of a squeeze but they didn’t mind. Warrick had his hands around her waist, keeping her hidden. No one knew where Greg went.

They heard the car pull into the drive. They all held their breath. The key turned in the lock. The door opened. Gil placed her bag in the hallway.

“Wait there I’ll give you a hand.” He shouted from the doorstep.
“Really Gil I’m fine.”
“You know I worry, let me help.”

They came through the door.

“Go sit down I’ll make some tea.”

Sara made her way to the front room.


Gil was laughing to himself, as he heard Sara scream.

Chapter 33 – Lady Heather

Sara was glaring at Gil as he walked into the front room; she was sitting on the sofa with Nick and Catherine. Brass was sitting in one of the armchairs with Aaron on his knee. Warrick had got a chair from the dinning room. Gil sat on the other armchair. They were all making light conversations with each other when they heard a banging. They all exchanged puzzled looks.

“I think it’s coming from the window.”

“I thought it was coming from the bookcase.”

Warrick got up and went to a cupboard by the bookcase.

“It’s definitely from here.”

He opened the doors to reveal a squashed Greg.

“Take your time why don’t you.”

“We wondered where you got to.”

They all laughed at him.

“Well is someone going to help me out?”
“How did you get in there?”

Warrick gave him a tug and Greg popped out, on top of him.

They all laughed again.

Nick had put the stereo on low for some background noise. Greg started on the food.

Gil’s pager had gone off.


We need to talk. L.H.

He got up, stood behind Sara and whispered in her ear and left.

“Where’s dad gone?”
“He had an errand to run.”
“I want to go!”
“No, we have guests.”
“But mum!”
“No buts.”

“Aaron, I hear you’re into bugs. Why don’t you show me your collection.”
“Ok, but most of them are back in San Francisco.”

“Now that Aaron is ok and you’re out of hospital…”
“Yes Nick?”
“Well…are you going to stay or are you going back to San Francisco?”
“I’m not sure…Gil and I have stuff to sort out still.”


During the drive to his destination Gil’s thoughts were spinning. “This is right? What does she want? Why now? Should I go home? I have a new life, don’t I? It can’t hurt just once?”
He pulled up outside, debating if he should get out or drive off. He saw the door open; he cut the engine and got out. He gingerly walked up the steps of the porch to the figure in the doorway.

“I thought you might have changed your mind.”
“We need to sort this once and for all.”
“Come in won’t you.”

Gil stepped inside.

“Nothing’s changed I see.”
“How’s you grand-daughter?”
“She’s very well. I hear you have a son?”
“Yes, Aaron.”
“Aaron…exalted, strong.”

They walked through to the conservatory where tea was laid out and the chess set out awaiting its challengers. They took their places, Gil sat behind the white pieces and Heather took her seat behind the black pieces.

The game started slowly, neither one spoke at first. After the third moves they spoke about general things like the weather and work. As the pieces were being taken slowly and the moves being thought through more the conversation turned.

“So what brings you back after all these years?”
“I’m re-opening the business.”

Grissom rose his eyebrow “Why’s that?”

“I’m ready to come back to the lifestyle I’m accustomed to…I’ve missed Vegas…I’ve missed this.”
“I mean what I said, after this I don’t want anything to do with you.”
“Are you truly happy?”
“I have a new life with my son.”
“But can she really make you happy?”
“Yes, she does.”
“Then why did she keep the knowledge of your son from you?”
“I suppose she was scared how I would of taken it. We never spoke of having children.”
“Does she know you are here?”

Grissom made his next move before he answered.

“I take that as a no.”
“You do read people well.”
“It’s a gift. What are you going to tell her when she asks where you’ve been?”
“I told her I had an errand to make.”

Heather made her final move. “Checkmate!”

She got up and poured more tea for them both, while Gil re-set the board.

“Captain Brass has been around asking questions.”
“Has he?”
“Yes, if you didn’t care for me you wouldn’t of bothered asking him to check on me.”
“Guilty. I just wanted to know what your intentions were.”
“Well now you know I’m back and in business, what are you going to do?”
“Let you live your life and I’ll live mine.”
“You’ll be back. I think you enjoy the challenge of not being able to beat me.”

With that said, Gil was in checkmate again.

“Why put yourself back in the position you hated?”
“It’s a living and I’ve missed it. My problems have gone, unlike Sara’s. She will break your heart again and when she does I’ll be waiting.”
“How can you be so sure?”
“I have a feeling.”

Gil’s phone rang.

“Grissom…just making my way back now…yeah ok…see you soon.”

“I’ll speak to you when the time is right then. Have a good life Gil.”
“Bye Heather, take care of yourself.”
“I’ll be fine.”

On the drive home Gil had a few uncertainties from what Heather had said. “Why would she leave again? Will she really break my heart again? I do enjoy our games and chats. She can’t be right this time…can she?”

On the way back Gil stopped at a small building to collect a package that had been in storage for nearly 3 years. It had arrived the day after she left him. He didn’t know what to do with it. He hoped and prayed that one day the intended would receive it.

Chapter 34 – White Lies

By the time Gil had gotten back to Sara and the others he found that everyone apart from Nick and Jim had left.

He walked into the front room.

“Where’s Sara?”
“She got tired and went to lay down.”
“How long has she been asleep?”
“About an hour.”
“Have the others gone to work already?”
“Yeah, it was getting late. Catherine wanted to make sure Lindsey was ok and it takes Greg at least 2 hours to get ready, and Catherine car-polled with Warrick.”
“Thank you for staying with her and Aaron.”
“Not a problem. I best get going or Ecklie will be steaming.”
“Thanks Nick.”

Grissom walked him to the door.

“So, where have you been?”

“I ran into an old friend.”
“Oh, no guesses who that may have been then. So she’s told you then?”
“That she’s starting up the business again.”
“And what? We said what was needed to be said and that’s it.”
“So…you’re not going to see her again?”
“What if she’s in trouble and needs your help?”
“Hopefully it wont come to that.”
“Are you going to tell Sara?”
“I’ll let her know what she needs to hear.”
“Nothing comes good of little white lies.”
“It wont hurt. She’s been through enough already.”
“Take care of yourself Gil and you family.” With that Brass left. “I hope he knows what he’s doing.” Jim thought.

Gil went to the kitchen and started to clean up. He didn’t mind having the team round but, they always left the kitchen in a mess and he always had to tidy it.

As he stood in front of the sink doing the dishes his mind started to wonder.

Nick’s Birthday 2007

The team had been over to celebrate Nick’s birthday. By the time the party was finished, the kitchen and dining room was trashed. Catherine had managed to persuade Nick to move onto a nightclub. Everyone except Gil said they where going, as they waited for a taxi, Sara helped clear the front room of crockery and rubbish. As she was bringing the last of the glasses through the taxi had turned up. Catherine called Sara she looked at Gil.

“Go enjoy yourself, I’ll be fine doing the dishes.”
“You sure you don’t want any help?”
“I’m sure.”

Sara walked to the front door where everyone was waiting. Grissom heard the door close behind them. He turned the radio on, and went back to the dishes.

He hadn’t realised he was not alone.

She stood in the doorway watching him. She noticed how sad and alone he felt by his figure by the sink.

With the others gone she could not resist. She had to touch him she wanted to feel him. She slowly walked behind Gil and put her arms around him, making him jump.

“You could of gone with them, I didn’t mind.”
“I know, but I rather be here then with them, trying to set me up with a random bloke at the club.”
“What did you tell them?”
“I said I would help you first and catch up later. Cath said to make sure to bring you with me, you need to get out more.”
“More like she’ll set me up too.”

He too was finding it difficult not to kiss or embrace her during the day. The team had no idea they where together.

Sara had now taken up washing the glasses as Gil took the rubbish out and then cleaned the work surfaces.

He walked up behind Sara, who knew he was there, and wrapped his arms around her waist and started to caress her neck.

Grissom was brought back to reality with a sharp pain in his hand. He had managed to cut himself. Seeing the water turn red he knew it was deep. He wrapped a dishcloth around his hand and retrieved the first-aid kit. He put a plaster over the wound and then bandaged it up. The blood was subsiding, but he knew it needed to be looked at.

Gil went upstairs to tell Sara he was going to hospital. He found her in Aaron’s room sitting on the bed as he slept.

“What happened to your hand?”
“Cut myself doing the dishes. It needs a couple of stitches. I came to let you know I was going to A&E.”
“Do you want some company?”
“No, I’ll be fine. Let him sleep, I’ll see you soon.”

Chapter 35 – Back So Soon

Gil had been waiting in A&E for 30 minutes; there was a backlog as a 3-car pile-up had been brought in.

“Mr Grissom, I didn’t think I’ll be seeing you this soon.”

Sara’s doctor said as he walked past.

“Slight accident with the dishes.”
“I’ll look at that for you. I’m finished for the night, it wont take long. I’m sure you’re wanting to get back home.”
“Yes, Sara is home with Aaron.”
“How are they both?”
“They are well.”
“Good to know. Is Sara in much pain?”
“No, not that I’ve noticed. She hasn’t touched any of the pain killers you prescribed for her.”

Grissom had 3 stitches; the doctor prescribed him a week worth of anti-biotic and told him to keep his hand dry for 4 days and to come back in 5 for the stitches to be removed.

He thanked the doctor and made his was home.

When he arrived back all the lights were out. “They must be asleep,” he thought.

Gil came through the door to find Sara sitting on the sofa in the dark. He turned the table lamp on.

“Sara, are you ok?”

She sat in silence tear tracks down her face. Gil sat next to her.

“What’s wrong?”
“The bad memories are back.”

Gil put his arm round her and pulled her into a hug.

“I meant what I said earlier. You’re safe now, nothing is going to hurt you.”

“How can you be so sure?”
“Because I wont let anything happen to you or Aaron.”

She rested her head on his shoulder and was soon asleep.

Chapter 36 – Unanswered Questions

Three Weeks Later

Aaron had been enrolled into school and loved it. Sara’s cast had come off, her ribs were still sore and she was still not allowed to do any heavy lifting. Gil had gone back to work 2 weeks ago and had only just finished catching up on paperwork. Catherine and Warrick had confirmed everyone’s suspicions about them, when Nick caught them coming out of the supply room.

Sara had kept asking what Heather had wanted the day she woke up. Gil had told her, “she was passing and thought I may of needed a shoulder.” Sara also wanted to know why she was back. Gil told her “Jim said she re-opened the business.”

Sara wasn’t too sure, as she knew Gil had asked Jim to find out. And then there was the 3 hours he had disappeared, when she came home. No one was able to answer where he had gone.

She had a feeling it was to see her.

Sara had thought about going and confronting Heather but, decided to get Catherine to go instead. She told Sara they where just saying goodbye.

Sara’s mind was racing. “Why did he go and see her? Why didn’t he tell me? Does he still have feelings for her? It’s happening again?”

By the time Gil had come home that day Sara was fuming.

Chapter 37 – Blow-out

Gil had set his briefcase down by the front door and placed his keys in the ceramic bowl. He walked into the kitchen to find a very unhappy Sara.

“What have I done now?” he joked. “Did I forget to take the rubbish out? Did I leave dirty dishes in the sink? Did I leave the toilet seat up?”

Sara just stared him down. “No! You lied about her.”

“Heather?” he said with a raised eyebrow.
“Why did you go and see her?”
“I needed to sort things out with her. I wanted to know why she was back.”
“But you asked Jim to find out?”
“Yes I did. I wanted to make sure she understood that I didn’t want anything to do with her.”
“And this took 3 hours did it!”
“I don’t believe you!”
“It’s the truth.”
“How can I believe you, when you didn’t tell me you saw her. How do I know that you don’t have feelings for her still? Hell Gil how do I know you don’t want to be with her.”
“I don’t. I want to be with you and Aaron.”
“I still don’t believe you!”
“How can I prove it to you?”

Just then Aaron came through the door. He had heard them as he got off the school bus. He ran upstairs to his room and slammed the door.

“Now look what you’ve done!”
“What I’ve done?”

Grissom went to go upstairs but Sara stopped him. He didn’t want to put her in a worse mood and let her go and comfort their son.

Aaron’s Room

Sara knocked on the door. Aaron didn’t answer she could hear him crying. She opened the door and stepped in. Aaron was on his bed with his head buried into the pillows.

“Baby…I’m sorry. We didn’t mean to scare you.” She said as she rubbed his back.
“Why were you fighting?”
“We had a disagreement about something and were trying to sort it out.”
“He doesn’t want me anymore does he?”
“Why do you think that?”
“Billy at school said his dad didn’t want him anymore and left. He said it was going to happen to me too.”
“Aaron, your farther loves you more then anything in the world. Remember that.”

Sara wiped his tears away.

“Then why were you fighting?”

Sara sighed. “I wanted to know why he saw an old friend and didn’t tell me about it.”
“So…is he leaving?”
“Am I leaving?”
“No and neither am I.”

She pulled him into a tight hug. Aaron buried his head into her side. She stroked his head to calm him down. He was soon asleep.

Sara took his shoes off and tucked him into bed. She crept out of the room and closed the door. She headed back downstairs.

“Is he alright?”
“He’ll be fine. He just got scared.”
“We need to talk!”
“Not now, I don’t want to wake him, I’ve just got him settled.”
“When then?”
“I don’t know…later!”

Gil stormed off to his office. Sara sat on the sofa curled up into a tight ball crying uncontrollably.

He could hear her. It pained him when she was like this. It hurt him more this time…he was the cause…”Why didn’t I listen to Jim?”

Sara had been crying for over an hour. Gil had calm down enough and emerged out of his office.

He went into the front room. Sara was now lying down. He lent over the back of the sofa and started to stroke her hair. He felt her shudder with the touch. He came round to the front of the sofa, he crouched down and kissed the top of her head.

“I’m so sorry. I should have told you. I didn’t want to worry you.”

He supported her head with his right arm and rubbed her back with his left hand. Sara’s crying had turned to sobs and soon she had stopped altogether.

Gil was now sitting on the sofa; Sara was curled up with her head on his lap. Gil continued to rub her back she was soon asleep. Gil pulled a blanket over her and watched her sleep for about 2 hours, when he finally dozed off.

Chapter 38 – It Will All Work Out…Wont It?

Gil had woken up rather stiff from sleeping upright on the sofa. He awoke to the aroma of pancakes. He slowly stretched out all the kinks and knots in his body. He folded the blanket and put it on the back of the sofa. He followed the aroma to the kitchen where he found Sara cooking.

She smiled at him as he walked in.

“How did you sleep?”
“Not bad, a little stiff this morning.”

“Do you want me to check on Aaron?”
“I’ve done it. He’s still sleeping.”
“Can I give you a hand?”
“I fine thank you.”

Grissom went to make a pot of tea.

“It’s done.”
“Ok, can I pour you a cup?
“Yes please…your pancakes are nearly ready.”

They sat in silence while they ate breakfast.

“I was thinking…maybe we should go away at the weekend?”
“Anywhere in particular?”
“Just a spot I know.”
“Sounds good.”
“Can I come too?”
“Good morning sleepy head.”
“Of course you’re coming.”
“Good! Someone has to keep you two in line.”

“Aaron, I’m sorry for yesterday.”
“It’s ok, I got scared. Just…”
“Just what Baby?”
“Just…don’t let it happen again ok?
“I promise.”

“Now how about some breakfast?”
“Yes, your favourite.”
“Who’s cooking them?”
“Who would you like to cook them?”
“Both of you. I haven’t decided who makes them better.”


Gil had gotten up at 4am; he had showered and then made and packed a picnic for the three of them. After Aaron and Sara had turned in for the night he had packed two over night bags. He loaded the car up and proceeded to wake Sara and Aaron.

Aaron was much easier to wake then Sara who had gone back to sleep when Gil went to wake Aaron. They were all now up and ready for the road trip. Gil hadn’t told either one of them where they were headed, it was a surprise.

They hadn’t made it out of Vegas, both Sara and Aaron were sound asleep. Gil chuckled to himself, “another family trait”, he thought.

Chapter 39 – San Francisco

As Gil was driving he thought of all the places to visit, and where to start. He decided to start in San Francisco and work there way out; stopping at most of the tourist attractions. Gil also knew as soon as Aaron recognised where he was, he would want some of his collections.

Nine hours and two stops later

Gil was driving down an all too familiar street, one that he didn’t have the courage to stop in, all those years ago.

“Maybe I should have told her. If only I stopped.”

A sleepy voice brought him out of his thoughts.

“Why are we here?”
“I thought it would be a nice surprise for you.”
“Does mum know?”
“Not yet.”
“I don’t think she’ll like it.”
“Well we are going to visit your uncle, if I could only remember which house is his.”
“It’s that one with the pick-up on the drive and the dog house.”
“So it is.”

Gil pulled into the drive next to the black pick-up with flames down the sides. He helped Aaron out and told him to knock on the door, while he got the bags.

“Hey there Sport. Didn’t think I’ll see you till tomorrow. Where’s your mum.”
“She’s in the car.”
“Is it just you two?”

Before Aaron could answer Grissom appeared from behind the car with the bags.

“Guess not” he thought. “Grissom.”
“Hi Andrew. Thanks for letting us stay for the weekend.”
“No worries, it’s always hell trying to find an empty hotel during the bank holiday weekend.”

Gil followed them into the house and put the bags down. He went outside to get Sara and lock the car.

After two hours of talking and dinner, Gil excused himself and retired to bed. Aaron was playing with Bruno, Andrew’s German Shepard.

Sara had got her brother alone in the kitchen and started to talk about the kidnapping and what Jesse had told her. She wasn’t sure how to bring up their sister, so she took a deep breath and asked him straight.

“Drew…do you remember Sophie…our sister?”
“Not really. I do have a photo of us all though somewhere. I’ll find it for you later.”
“Thank you.”

“So what brings you all down here? Not that I mind.”
“Well, we still have stuff to sort out, and Gil thought sometime away from Vegas was needed.”
“What you got planned?”
“That I don’t know, he’s planned everything.”

“Aaron’s been on about how all his things are here, so I guess we could get some of his belongings. How is the house?”
“It’s how you left it, well I’ve tidy it and sorted your mail out.”
“Thanks, it’s strange going back there with Gil.”

“Has he told you that he came by two years ago?”

“Yeah, Jim phoned me and gave Grissom my address. I didn’t think he would come. I gave him your address when he arrived; he drove by your place. I asked if he saw you. He said he did, but didn’t have the courage to speak to you. He also said he saw you with another man and two kids; he thought you had moved on.”
“Didn’t you think to say anything?”
“I tried; but he said it was a mistake coming and had to get back to the lab, and got his things and left.”

“If only I knew, I wouldn’t of given him a hard time the other day.”
“Want to talk about it?”
“No, we will sort it out.”
“I’m here anytime no matter what!”
“I know Drew. What are you up to tomorrow?”
“Can you come to the house to pick up Aaron’s things?”
“Sure. You going to move back permanently to Vegas?”
“Depends if we can sort out the problems.”

“Aaron…time for bed.”
“Ok. Uncle Drew can you tuck me in and read me a story?”
“Sure Sport.”

Forty minutes later, Andrew came back downstairs to find Sara on the sofa looking through an old photo album she had found.

“He’s sound asleep.”
“Thank you. I don’t know how I forgot about her.” A tear rolled down Sara’s face.
“You were very young when it happened. I guess with what happened next you managed to block the memories out.”
“I suppose.”
“Don’t go beating yourself up over it Sara.”
“I’ll try not to.”

“So are you bunking down with Bug-man or do you need some blankets for the sofa?”

Sara glared at her brother. “I’ll see you in the morning.” She leaves and goes upstairs.

Sara’s Room

Sara was in two minds whether to go in or just sleep on the sofa, as she was annoyed Gil hadn’t told her they where going to San Francisco.

She crept in quietly not to wake him. She changed out of her clothes and put on her old college football jersey to sleep in.

She walked over to the bed and sat on the side. She didn’t realise that Gil had woken up.

“Do you want me to sleep on the sofa?”
“No, it’s fine. I was just thinking.”

Sara lifted the covers and got in. She laid very much on the edge of the bed.

“I can go, it would be more comfortable for you.”
“No, I’m fine, you’re fine.”
“I don’t bite…well not any more.” Sara giggled at the thought.

“Gil…why didn’t you tell me you came to see me before?”

Grissom was fighting the urge to hold her, to touch her.

“I…I was ashamed I didn’t come sooner; and when I saw you with another man I thought you had moved on. I suppose I was scared…too scared to hear the truth.”

Sara sighed, “We will be ok won’t we?”

Gil moved closer and pulled her into a hug. The forgotten electricity surged through their bodies. They stayed in each other’s arms till they fell asleep.

The next morning

Sara and Gil woke to the smell of fresh coffee and breakfast. It was 9am; they had plenty of time to see the sights that Gil had planned for the day.

Gil grabbed a shower while Sara checked on Aaron, who was surprisingly up and dressed. She waited in her room until the bathroom was free. She blushed when Gil emerged with a towel wrapped around his waist; he gave her a devilish grin. Sara quickly picked her clothes up and went into the bathroom to get ready.

After breakfast they all climbed into the SUV, for a day packed with fun and adventure.

They started the day at Muir Woods, they hiked through the woods for just over an hour, stopping and looking at all the different insects they could find. Gil was taken back with the knowledge that Aaron had about the insects.

Their next stop was Alcatraz Island. They departed from Fisherman’s Wharf. After about 2hours they made there way to Nob Hill and then to Chinatown.

On the way back home Gil pulled into the Golden Gate Park, to update his photo collection.

Aaron and Drew raced towards the playground leaving Gil and Sara strolling behind.

Sara looked over at him and smiled. For the first time since she came back into his life, Gil could see how happy and alive she was.

He reached for her hand she trembled when they connected. Gil pulled her closer, put his arm around her waist and slipped his hand into her back jeans pocket. Sara leaned into his shoulder.

“I’ve missed this.”

Gil kissed the top of Sara’s head. “Me too.”

They found a bench to sit on and watched their son wear down his Uncle.

On the way back to the car they stopped for ice cream.

During the car journey home it was decided that Gil was cooking while, Andrew and Sara went to her house to fetch some more belongings.

Sara’s House

Andrew parked his pick-up on the drive, and followed Sara into the house. Aaron had tagged along so that he could decide on which collections to take back with him.

“Where do you want to start?”
“Um…guess with packing some more clothes.”

Andrew went to the hallway closet and retrieved two suitcases. He put one in Sara’s room and took the other to Aaron.

Sara had packed half of her clothes and put in a couple of photo albums. She closed the case, took another look around her room and put the case by the front door.

By the time Andrew and Aaron came out, Aaron had crammed his case with nearly all his clothes and had 3 boxes full of books, toys and all 15 insect collections and his ant farm.

Andrew’s House

With diner in the oven and 15 minutes left, the table was set; Gil was upstairs looking for a small package. He didn’t hear the others come back.

Andrew put the cases and boxes in the garage. Sara and Aaron went upstairs to freshen up before diner.

“What have you lost?”

Sara startled Gil.

“Oh…hi…I didn’t hear you come in.”

“So, what have you lost?”
“Nothing. It will keep.”

“I’m going to check on diner.” With that Gil went to the kitchen.

After diner, Sara and Aaron took Bruno for a walk.

Gil and Andrew did the dishes.

“Andrew, could you look after Aaron tomorrow night?”

“Sure Gil. May I ask why?”
“I would like to take Sara out to diner, just the two of us.”
“What time are you going and where?”
“About 8pm and to a place I know on the Sea Front.”

Sara’s Room

Gil was laying on the bed reading, when he heard Sara, Aaron and Bruno return. There was a knock at the door.

Aaron entered.

“What can I do for you son?”
“I came to say goodnight.” Aaron stood in front of Gil with a raised eyebrow.
“Is there something else?”
“Um…can you read to me?”
“Of course, get ready and I’ll be there in a bit.”

Aaron scampered to his room. By the time Gil got there he found Sara sitting on the bed with Aaron laying on her asleep.

“He tried to stay awake. Been a busy day for him. As soon as he laid down he was out like a light.”
“You look exhausted. I’ll stay with him for a bit in case he wakes.”
“Thank you.”

Sara carefully got up not to disturb Aaron. She walked up to Gil and kissed him on the cheek and whispered in his ear.

“Thank you for today…don’t be too long.”

Gil smiled at her.

Ten minutes later

Gil was coming through the bedroom door, when he heard the shower stop. He closed the door behind him and got changed for bed. He couldn’t help but look through the crack in the doorway. He spied something intriguing on Sara’s lower back as she dressed.

Gil was lying in bed staring at Sara as she joined him, with that inquisitive look. Sara frowned at him.

“What is that look for?”
“I was thinking about butterflies.”
“Yes, especially lilac coloured ones.”
“Mmm, I think there is one around here somewhere.”

Sara blushed as she got into bed she laid against Gil. He was stroking her side. The electricity was becoming too mush for Sara to handle; she shifted and Gil stopped. He pulled her into a tight embrace. They stayed that way until they were asleep.

Chapter 40 – A Night Not To Forget

As it was Sunday and nothing had been planned the whole household had a deserved lay in.

Sara and Aaron spent the rest of the morning and afternoon catching up with Andrew. Gil had decided he needed a new shirt for an up coming meeting he forgot about.

Gil returned with four packages. He was please the others where still out. He took the boxes to Sara’s room and unpacked them. He hung his new suit and the other items. He hoped Sara would like them.

Grissom was franticly looking for a small box, the one he picked up a few days ago in Vegas. He went through both of his bags throwing all the contents on the floor but no luck. He went out to the SUV and tore through that, but still no luck inside. He went round to the back and opened the boot and started rummaging. He moved his field kit out the way and still nothing. It was only when he put his kit back into the boot, he opened it, thinking it would not be in there. There it was lying on top. He carefully open it, to make sure the contents was still in tack.

Gil quickly close the box and shove it into his pocket, when he heard a vehicle pull up behind him.

“What are you up to?”
“Just making space for the extra boxes and luggage.”
“There’s a couple more in the back of the pick-up.”
“How was your morning?”

“I was thinking as it’s our last night here we could go out for dinner…Just the two of us?”

“Sure, Drew is taking Aaron to the movies. I guess I’d better go and find something to wear then. What time are we going?”
“In about 3 hours.”

Sara went into the house, followed closely by Gil. She went upstairs and he went into the kitchen.

“Everything set?”
“Yes, thank you for looking after Aaron Andrew.”
“My pleasure, I’m going to miss him when you leave.”
“You are more then welcome to come and visit anytime.”
“Likewise Gil.”

Two hours later

Gil had gone for a shower and to get ready for dinner. Sara was tending to Aaron before he left with Drew for the movies.

With the boys gone, Sara went upstairs for her shower and to get ready. She still did not know what to wear.

As Sara walked into the room, Gil looked over at her. He had is collar popped, as he was putting on his tie. Sara smiled at him; whenever he had his collar that way it made her go weak in the knees.

“I wont be long.”

“There’s no hurry, we have plenty of time.”

Gil had put Sara’s dress and other gifts in the bathroom, she still hadn’t seen them.

The doorbell rang

“I’ll get it.”

Gil was gone before Sara had a chance to thank him for the dress.

As Sara was drying herself, she noticed a small box on the side; she opened it, smiled to herself and put the contents on. “I wonder what he has planned?” She thought.

Now dressed, she left the bathroom to find Gil and thank him. As she stepped into the bedroom, she was greeted with a bouquet of roses and another box.

Gil stood in the doorway as she opened the small box.

Sara’s eyes lit up as she opened it. It contained a white gold butterfly with a amethyst protruding from its centre.

Gil walked up behind her, he kissed her neck and placed the pendent around it.

“You look amazing!” He whispered.

Sara turned round and pulled him in for a kiss.

Golden Shores Hotel

Grissom had booked a private table at the Golden Shores Hotel out on the balcony. The view they had was extravagant. He had another surprise for Sara.

By the time they had got there, the sun had started to set. Gil was waiting for the right moment to ask that burning question; he felt his pocket for the box.

One and a half hours later

With the meal finished and two bottles of wine later, the sun was in the perfect position for Gil to ask his question. He took Sara’s hands and walked her over to the balcony. She revelled in the view.

The sun was just touching the sea, behind the Golden Gate, its reflection bouncing on the waves. Gil put his hands on her waist and kissed her neck, she smiled. As they gazed out at the sunset Gil finally spoke.

“Sara Sidle, I love you so much. Marry me!”

He felt her hold her breath, he turned her around and looked into those brown eyes, his heart melted.

He took the box out of his pocket, got on one knee and asked her again.

“Sara, will you marry me?”

Her eyes started to well up. She pulled him up off the floor and kissed him. The kiss had more passion in it then their first.

Gil led her into the hotel and to the room he had booked for the night.

Chapter 42 – The Road Home

Gil and Sara checked out of the hotel, to meet up with Andrew and Aaron for a very late breakfast. When they arrived at the restaurant, they found them finishing up.

“How was your night?” Andrew said with a grin at his sister.
“Fine thanks.” She said as she glared at him. “Aaron were you good for your Uncle?”
“Yes, we went to the movies, then stayed up late playing games.”
“Did you now, early to bed tonight then.”

“So…what did you and dad do?” Grissom giggled into his cup of coffee.
“Well, we had a wonderful dinner and your dad proposed to me.”
“And what? Oh! I said yes.”
“Good, that means we will be together always.”

After breakfast, they all made their way back to Andrew’s house to collect the remaining boxes and to get on the road. They exchanged goodbyes and made a promise to visit each other more often.

On the way back they stopped off at the Grand Canyon, admiring the breath taking views.

As they pulled up into the driveway, Sara said, “Now, there is not going to be anyone in there to scare me this time?”
“No, not this time.”

Sara made Grissom go in first while she carried a very sleepy boy to his room. She laid Aaron down gently, took his shoes off and tucked him in. When Sara went back downstairs, she found Grissom unloading the SUV. It didn’t take them long to bring the last couple of boxes in and retire to bed.

Chapter 43 – Is The Cat Out Of The Bag?

Sara awoke with the sun streaming through the window. She stretched out finding that Gil was no longer in bed. She got up graded her robe and went in search for her fiancé. She checked Aaron’s room to find neither of them in there. She hurried downstairs to find them going through the boxes they bought back, finding the appropriate places for the contents.

“Good morning, and what time did you get up?”

“Morning Sunshine.” Gil said as he got up and kissed her. “About 2 hours ago. Breakfast?”
“I’ll get it started while you two get cleaned up.”

“What have you got planned today?”
“Just picking up my mail from the lab.”

Gil left for the lab. He took Aaron with him, as he wanted to have a proper look around where his parents worked.

As they entered the lab, they ran into Brass.

“Hey Gil, how was your weekend?”

“It was good. We need to catch up sometime. How about tomorrow?”
“Sounds like a plan. What brings you to the lab today?”
“Just checking the mail, and showing Aaron around.”
“I can show Aaron if you like, you have a lot of post.”
“That would be great Jim, I need to speak to Catherine anyway.”

“Ok Aaron, where would you like to start?”
“Um…the morgue.”
“Ok, lets go.”

Brass and Aaron headed down the corridor towards the morgue. Grissom went into his office.

An hour later

Grissom had finished sorting through his post; he picked up a small stack of papers and went to find Catherine.

Grissom found Catherine in the trace lab.

“Do you have a minuet?”

“Sure, what’s up?”
“I’m planning a get together around mine tomorrow, could you let the others know?”
“Ooo, what’s going on?”
“You’ll have to wait and see.”
“What have you done now?”
“Nothing, you’ll have to wait.”
“Well with that smile on your face I’m guessing it has something to do with Sara.”
“You’re not getting anything out of me this time.”
“I’m right then.”

“Have you seen Aaron and Jim?”
“Don’t think you’re getting out of this that easily by changing the subject.”
“Would I do a thing like that?” he said with a raised eyebrow.
“Yes you would. They are in print lab.”
“See you tomorrow.”

Grissom found Aaron and Brass, and headed home.

As shift was finishing Catherine went into the break room, where she found the others.

“Hey, Grissom has invited us all over to his tomorrow.”
“What’s he got planned?”
“Not sure but it has got me thinking.”
“Guess he’s got something important to tell us. I wonder what it could be.”
“All I know it has something to do with Sara, and he had the biggest grin on his face when he told me.”
“Anyone up for a small wager what it could be?”
“Count me in.”
“Me to.”
“Have you guys got nothing better to do?”
“Not really. So Cath, are you in?”

Chapter 44 – And The Winner Is…

The sun was just starting to rise; Sara was already up preparing for the team. She was not happy that her fiancé only mentioned inviting them over as they settled down to sleep the night before. She had so much to do.

As the sun streamed through the bedroom window, Gil steered and reached for his beloved. He was fully awake when he could not feel Sara on her side of the bed. He grabbed his robe and went to the kitchen for coffee. As he passed by the living room, he noticed it had been cleaned and straightened up.

Standing in the kitchen drinking he saw two figures in the back yard, moving toys and setting the table for their guess. Aaron saw the figure standing at the window and ran to his father.

“Mum says we have lots to do and we need supplies.”
“Ok, I’ll get ready and get them. Do you know what we need?”
“Yes, she made you a list and left it on the fridge.”

Grissom went for a quick shower, grabbed the shopping list and went into the back yard.

“Morning beautiful, and how are you on this lovely morning?”
“Don’t beautiful me, thanks for the warning.”
“You love me really!”
“We’ll see about that!”

Gil pulled Sara close to him and kissed her.

“Are you coming with me or staying here?”
“I’ll stay and get things started. Why don’t you take Aaron, I’m sure he would like to go with you.”
“I’ll go and ask him.”

Grissom and Aaron left Sara preparing what food they had in for their guests.
