"Montana," Danny said as he walked into the lab's break room. "I brought Mom's special recipe for upset stomachs. Don't worry I got all the ingredients fresh this morning."
"I'm starved," replied Lindsey. "I caught the case this morning and didn't get to eat breakfast on the way in."
Danny started pulling containers out of the sack he had brought in. He had been worried about her. For the last few days she had been throwing up her lunch. He thought she might be developing an ulcer. He made a mental note to ask Hawkes what he should pick up for her. Lindsey grabbed one of the containers and opened it. Here face crumpled immediately and she made a quick dash to the lavatory.
Stella had noticed the mad dash as she passed the doorway. "Is she okay?" she enquired of Danny.
Danny sighed, "Day 3, she throws up at lunch again. Not breakfast, just everyday at lunch. Even Mama's recipe doesn't work." He started putting the containers back in the sack.
"Hmm…" Stella replied. "Tell her to come talk to me when she's feeling better."
"Yes," Stella replied. "You feeling better?"
Lindsey swallowed, "It'll pass, just a little bit of nausea."
Stella looked shrewdly at Lindsey. Then she pulled a sterile specimen cup out of her desk. "Just go take the test."
Lindsey's brow furrowed in confusion, "I don't understand. You want me to do a drug screen on myself??? That's against protocol."
"No, Lindsey," Stella sighed. "Urine pregnancy test kits are in the lab, the third cabinet from the door."
"Oh, I see."
She just proceeded to pull to down the urine pregnancy test kit out of the cabinet. It was then he noticed that the specimen container wasn't labeled. So she's doing a pregnancy test for someone, he thought. He knew that they had always used protection so he wracked his brain to think who else it could be. Not Stella. She hasn't trusted any guy since that psycho. Maybe that girl in DNA that got married a few months back. Linds was friendly with her so she may be doing the test for her.
He watched as Lindsey pipetted a small amount of the sample onto the test kit. Danny set his piece of evidence aside to go over and watch Lindsey's test. He didn't care if it belonged to the DNA girl's. Lindsey seemed nervous about it. And his silently standing beside her always settled her so he walked up behind her and touched her waist lightly. Almost automatically Lindsey shifted slightly so she leaned back into him. He watched over her shoulder as the test ran. In less than a minute the test window turned blue.
"Positive," Lindsey whispered.
"So who do we need to congratulate?" Danny asked.
Lindsey laughed. Danny was so careful to avoid assuming anything. "Ourselves."
"Us?... But we… You're sure?... So the throwing up… You know Montana, you would be the woman to get the morning sickness wrong." Danny grinned and kissed her.
