As he approached the two women, the one with brown hair said, "I know you."
He looked at her incredulously for a few minutes and then it struck him that he knew who she was. "Ellie?" He said in disbelief.
"Yeah, it's me. I'm a different person now. My dad asked if I could come and he my roommate Roxie came, because she's a friend of Lydia's," she said as she motioned to her friend. "I'm sorry if I ever offended you Warrick."
"It's ok girl, I'm just glad to see that you're put together now, for your sake and Jim's."
"Yeah," Roxie began. "She needed some help though, even though she didn't want to admit it. Eventually she looked for a roommate and she got me."
"We're very close. It feels good to have a best friend again. She also works in a field like you do. She's a chemical analyst for the crimelab in LA."
"Really," Warrick said as he looked at Roxie.
"Yeah I am," she answered with a smile. "The world's pretty small since you already know my two best friends."
"Well, then I have to get to know you too."
The two of them smiled and Ellie excused herself to go mingle while the two of them became better acquainted. Warrick asked Roxie to dance, and she accepted. They talked throughout the dances, and he loved the way her body curved and rotated to the music, she enjoyed feeling his strong muscles against her. It wasn't like their attraction was purely physical; they did enjoy the conversation that the other offered.
Her eyes were deep green, almost unnaturally so, but they were natural, and the more he looked into her eyes, the less he wanted to stop dancing with her. She was becoming lost in his baby blue eyes just as much. They hadn't even noticed that they were supposed to start saying goodbye to Catherine and Grissom until the music stopped entirely.
They filed out of the room like all the rest of the guests, but as they were leaving he said, "Do you want to come to my place to talk some more?"
"Sure, you seem safe enough," she replied.
So they went off to his place, where they sat down and he brought out some wine.
"You know I usually don't go to the apartments of men I don't know."
"You know me, plus your friends with one of my co-workers, do you think I'd do anything to you?"
"No, plus you seem too nice."
"Well thank you."
They both took sips of their wine, and she edged closer to him on his sofa, he was perfectly comfortable with their closeness, and he decided to take it a step further by putting his arm around her shoulders. She decided that she liked that and she nuzzled into him more, then she started to run her hand softly along his leg. With his free hand he cupped her face and he brought it up to his own, then he softly touched her lips with his. She reciprocated the kiss eagerly, and they continued to kiss more deeply.
As carefully as they could, while still kissing, they set down their glasses on his coffee table, and then they tumbled unto the couch so that she was lying on top of him.
She broke their kiss. While panting she said, "Do you want to date me and take this relationship seriously?"
"Yes," he answered. "Trust me, you are incredible." Then they kissed again, this time with even more passion than before.
While only stopping their kisses long enough to grab a quick breath, they managed to undress one another, and make it to his bedroom. Without care for the fact that they were still practically strangers, Warrick made love to Roxie. When they had finished, they gently caressed one another until they fell asleep in each other's arms.
