She had been on call for a double shift and just as the clock struck midnight, her phone started beeping. At first she thought it was Stella wishing her a happy birthday – Stella was the only one who knew when her birthday was – but it wasn't, it was Mac.
"What" Lindsay grumbled into the phone.
"Sorry to wake you Lindsay but we need you to come in. I know you don't want to be here, none of us do, but everyone is conveniently sick today"
"What do you expect? It's Christmas Eve, now Christmas day; people want to spend it with their families"
"Yeah I know. Anyway, are you coming in or shall I call someone else?"
"I'll come in. Who else is there?"
"Me, Stella and Flack"
"There's some other CSI's but none from our group"
"Ok, I'll be there in half hour"
"Thank you Lindsay"
Mac was already in the lab when she entered the room.
"Ok, what do I have to do?"
"Analyse those fibres there please," He pointed to a box of evidence consisting solely of fibres.
"Alright" she picked up the box and preceded to a microscope "What am I looking for?"
"Anything that matches the control sample. Murder in a cotton factory, would you believe"
Lindsay smiled "Sounds fun"
"Define fun" Mac replied sarcastically "I have to go see Flack. Be back as soon as. You need anything?"
"Nah, I'm good for now thanks"
She stepped out of the elevator and was nearly knocked over by Stella. Instinctively, Stella grabbed Lindsay by the shoulders to stop her from falling.
"Hey Stelle, its Ok"
"Good, now come with me"
Stella took Lindsay's hands and dragged her back into the elevator
"Where are we going? I've just come from the lab"
"You didn't think I'd forgotten your birthday did you?"
Lindsay beamed a smile "You remembered"
"Of course. It has been so hard trying to make sure I caught you today"
"Well you have me now"
Stella raised her eyebrows and glanced at the floor dial. She was shocked to find that she had reached 35th floor so quickly. Again, she grabbed Lindsay's hand and spun her out of the lift.
"Jeez Stelle. Why are you this excited? Yours isn't until 3 months"
"Yes I know, but this is going to be special"
Lindsay looked puzzled.
"Nothing to worry about. Just get your self into the locker room, pronto" She shooed Lindsay into the break room and shut the door. Stella spun on her heel to open her locker and pulled out a Macys bag and handed it to Lindsay.
"Sorry its not wrapped up, and sorry there's no card"
Lindsay took the bag and sat down on the bench. She carefully opened the bag and reached in to find a piece of satin fabric. Her fingers gently gripped two ends of the fabric and she pulled out a dress. She was holding onto the sleeves as the soft fabric unfolded when she pulled it from the bag. Lindsay admired the dress and tears came to her eyes. She laid the silver satin on the workbench and looked at it once more.
"Thank you so much" She hugged Stella "It's beautiful"
"No problem Linds. I only have one request"
"You wear it when you leave tonight"
"You'll see" She picked up the dress "Now come on, get it on" she held the dress in her arms and gave it to Lindsay.
"I'm not going yet though"
"You are now. I just told Mac to find someone else because something came up"
"Will you quit asking and just trust me on this. Now, please, go put the dress on while I get the other part of your present"
Lindsay walked into a dark corner of the room and changed from her scruffy jeans and t-shirt into the beautiful silver dress. Stella gasped when Lindsay stepped back into the light in the dress. The pleated sweetheart bodice maximized her assets perfectly, the full skirt stopped just below her knee but didn't stop enhancing her sex appeal and the beautiful bow below her chest was the perfect final touch.
"Lindsay, you look so beautiful" Stella now had a tear in her eye.
Stella was holding a small pendant with the letter L engraved in diamonds and a little tiara. She walked behind Lindsay and fastened the necklace.
"Why have you gone to all this trouble?"
"You'll see later. I promise"
Stella placed the tiara on top of Lindsay's curls.
"You look like a princess"
Lindsay was smiling like a schoolgirl who was the prettiest girl at the prom "Thanks"
Stella looked down at Lindsay's bare feet and sighed. She took a small shoebox from the bottom of her locker and placed the small heels on the floor. Lindsay graciously stepped into the silver stilettos. The rhinestones glittered with her diamond necklace and the diamonds on her tiara. Finally, Stella wrapped a shawl around Lindsay's shoulders.
"Perfect" she exclaimed "Now, follow me, I have another surprise"
Stella led Lindsay out of the room.
Lindsay turned to look at Danny, who was also dressed up. He was stood in a gorgeous suit, holding out a silver rose. She took the rose and thanked him before taking his hand. Danny looked over at Stella and mouthed Thank You. Stella nodded and walked towards the window. She could see Danny leading Lindsay to a horse drawn carriage.
"Danny? Is this for me?"
"Yep. I thought you'd want something special on your birthday"
Lindsay stood – gob smacked – looking at the gallant white horses and the carriage.
"I love you Lindsay" he kissed her cheek and led her into the carriage where they gently left reality and entered a world where no one existed but them.
Lindsay got her prince charming, and was finally living her own fairytale.
