First off I would like to say I am so sorry for the wait on all my stories, I had a few chapters wrote up and then I dropped my laptop so lost all my work and had to get a new laptop but now hopefully will be back on track. Secondly I thought it was about time I explained Smithy and Stevies relationship in this story now so this chapter flashes back to explain it. The flashbacks are in Italics and finally I hope you enjoy and please review thanks Jodie xx
He wrapped his arm slowly round the small blonde and grinned "Stevie you know I would never not forgive you darling... I love you so much" He glanced down "But I dont know where we go from here..". She smiled "I dont think things can get a lot worse" he smiled round the park before back to her "Two and a half years we have been together and here was me thinking it was ment to get easy.." she laughed "As if..". He grinned "How long did it take me to convince you to date me eh... for three months it was just sex... and look at us now.. all serious.. living together.. talking babys... maybe we could even get married?". She smiled at him slightly as he took hold of her hand "I know we have always said we would do it.. but the timing was never right and our jobs got in the way.. but why not do it.. Stevie will you marry me?". She grinned before moving in and placing a gentle kiss to his lips "Of corse I will.. I love you Dale Smith". They both returned to his Mums where Stevie decided to stay the night, as the couple made their way to his bedroom she grinned at him "Wow.. I wonder how many girls you had in here while you were growing up.." she asked as she rested down onto the blue duvet. He shook his head "None.. I didnt have much luck with girls.. I was a bit geeky". She grinned "I can imagine.." he glared at her as she laughed "I just mean.. you have that look Smithy". He flopped down onto the bed next to her and layed down staring up at where she sat, they both shouted good night as his mum made her way to her own bedroom. Smithy sighed "I cant believe how wrong things went.." she interupted "Im sorry Smithy". He shook his head to dismiss her apoloyge "Dont be daft Moss.. losing the baby wasnt your fault.. its just.. do you remember when we got together... the promises I made you?".
"Hey.. Stevie.. Stevie... please would you wait up... we need to talk..." he smiled as he grabbed the small blondes arm, he glanced up and down her body, he had always been attracted to her but never quite as much as now. "Please... just give me ten minutes?". She nodded "Ok.. but not here.. I will come to your place after shift...". He smiled as she began her way back down the corridor. The preivious night Smithy had made a huge mistake, he had missread the signs and made a pass at her, of all the people he could of made a pass at he choose Stevie Moss, as if someone like her would look twice at him. She had everything, she was gorgeous, funny, clever, everything any man would want, how could he of been so stupid. Hearing the knock on his front door, he took a deep breath before pushing to his feet, he had decided to dress down, in some black jogging bottoms and a grey hooded top, he suddenley felt underdressed as he pulled the door open, her hair fell loosly at the side of her face, she had on a beautiful long red top met by a pair of black leggings and high heel shoes which elevated her height by what seemed like miles, he knew his mouth droped open as she came into sight and he noticed her smirk slightly, this was it she had come here to torure him, she was going to make him regret the day he thought she would look twice at a man like him he invited her in and led the way towards the living room, he watched her rest down on the sofa before making an excuse about getting them a drink and running for the kitchen.
He had been fiddling with the kettle for a few minutes when he heard her voice in the kitchen door way "So you want me now?". He gulped before turning to face her "What?". She smiled "When we were undercover... you knocked me back so whats changed?". He shook his head "It werent like that Stevie.. I just wasnt ready for a relationship.." she interupted "Who said anything about a relationship.. if you want me its sex.. and just sex..". He smiled "So we would be what... friends with benifits?". She nodded "If thats what you want Smithy?". He nodded "Are you sure you are happy with that?". She moved over to him and placed her hand on the back of his neck before pushing up into his lips.
Waking the next morning he couldnt help but feel guilty as he watched her sleep, although he knew he had done nothing wrong and the two had spent a lovely evening together, he couldnt help but want more from her than what she was prepaired to give but deciding to bite his tounge, when she woke he made her breakfast before the two headed to work. Hours turned to days, days turned to weeks and weeks turned to months and Smithy knew he had to do something, he couldnt carry this on, he was in love with her, there was no doubt about it, and he had to tell her or finish things, and deciding rather than getting his heart broken once again, he would end the arrangement him and Stevie had come to. He watched as she dressed on the cool summers morning before sighing "Stevie..." she glanced at where he still layed in the bed "I dont think I can keep this up.." she shook her head "I dont understand.." he sat up and smiled "I cant sleep with you anymore". She pulled on her final shoe and nodded "Erm.. ok.. I will go then.. see you Smithy" and with that she walked from his bedroom, he heard the front door slam before he let his emotion in, he wiped his eyes as it dawned on him he may never get the chance to admit his feelings for her now.
A few days drifted past and Smithy was at an all time low, he wanted her so much but he knew now it would never happen, she wasnt even talking to him and he had noticed her getting close to other members of uniform. Seeing her walk into the canteen he smiled but once her eyes set on him she turned round and walked back out. He sighed before pushing to his feet and making his way after her "Stevie... can we talk.. please.. we need to sort things out..". She turned back to face him "I think you have made your feelings perfectly clear.. Im looking for PC Knight.. have you seen her?". He looked slightly confused "No.. Stevie.. we need to clear the air...". She shook her head "Why.. to make you feel better, obviously I got to involved and you ment more to me than I did to you.. but its fine.. I have dealt with it...". He shook his head "No Stevie..." Kirstys voice at the end of the corridor interupted "You ready Serge". Stevie turned to the taller blonde and nodded slightly "Yeah.. Im coming.." she turned back to Smithy and sighed "Please Smithy if you have any decency in your body... just leave me alone" he watched her walk down the corridor.
After she had finished her shift she returned home and rested down at the kitchen table with a large cup of strong coffee, she had no idea how things started to go so wrong. She took a sip of her drink, dabbing at her eyes, she had never been one to get emotionally involved, she had always been more than happy on her own but whatever she did, however hard she tried she couldnt get Smithy off her mind, and here she was feeling so rejected. She finished her drink before making her way into the bathroom, she ran a hot bath before climbing in, she shut her eyes as the tears began to roll down her soft cheeks. The bang on the door startled her and she sat up in the bath, glancing at the clock she realised she had fallen asleep. She climbed from the bath and wrapped her fluffy dressing gown round her slim figure, she walked out and made her way to the front door, pulling it open and seeing his smile the other side she slammed it shut again. "Stevie..." he called. "Go away Smithy... I dont want to do this again Smithy.. please leave me alone..". He sighed, he had never heard her sound so vunrable and alone and it dawned on him he was responsile. "Stevie.. please open the door... I dont want to do this with a piece of wood in the way.. Stevie come on..." he waited, silence. He sighed "Stevie.. if you wont let me in.. I will just have to tell you through the door..." he paused "Oh come on stevie at least let me know you are listening". She sat on the floor, knowing he wasnt going to go away, but she couldnt let him see how much he had upset her, how much influence he had over her. She listened as he began to talk again "Fine.. I will tell the door then.. that I.. that Im madly in love with you.. that I always have been and the only reason I ended things was because I knew I wanted to much from you". He glanced down as he rested his hand onto the door "I dont really know what else I can say... I love you Stevie Moss... I erm Im gunna go... see you soon". He made his way down her stone steps and unlocked his car but hearing the door behind him unlock he turned back to her. He sighed as he stared at her red cheeks and her bloodshot eyes, he made his way up the steps and pulled her into his arms "Stevie..." she shook her head as she began to cry, he pulled away from her and she tried to hide her eyes, he grinned "What you crying for you silly woman?". She smiled "Why did you finish with me?". He sighed "Because you said it was just sex and I couldnt take it anymore". She shook her head "I wanted more Smithy". He nodded "I have guessed that now... so what.. we gunna be official now?". She grinned "Are you asking me to be your girlfriend Inspector Smith?". He grinned "Yeah I am... is it a yes?". She nodded "Yeah its a yes.. I love you". He smiled "I love you too" before leaning down into her lips.
The couple were getting closer and had decided to tell the rest of the team at Sunhill they were now an item which after an evening at the pub had gone down well, the two sat together in the pub on a table a few away from their colleagues and they were both well aware that they were being watched but neither cared as his hand was rooted in her hair and his mouth pushed tight to hers his tounge asking for entrance. He pulled from her after a few minutes and many wolf whistles from the table just away from theirs, he glared at Callum before turning back to her "You know I am gunna make you happy... I want to be the man you marry.. you have kids with... and spend your life with". She smiled slightly "I love you". He nodded "I promise you..
Im gunna make you the happiest woman alive". She grinned "I already am".
Waking up in Smithys arms she grinned as she stared down at him still fast asleep, she could hear his mum moving about in her bedroom, she placed a gentle kiss to Smithys lips before pulling her jeans on to meet his shirt she had slept in and making her way out into the hall, she waited for a few minutes for his mum to appear and she smiled at her "I just want to thank you Pauline... I know Dale didnt decide to forgive me by himself..." Pauline smiled "Well... you are the best thing to ever happen to him.. I just hope whatever problems it is you are having you can get over it..." she nodded "So do I". Feeling his hands rest onto her shoulders she glanced over at him. He placed a slight kiss to her cheek and smiled at his Mum "Mornin'
Mum... listen I know I said I was gunna stay a few weeks but..." she interupted "You are going home.. I have already guessed Dale... go and pack your thing up and I will make us all some breakfast". Stevie followed him into the bedroom and grinned "I love you..". He smiled back at her "I love you too... and we have a wedding to start planning". She grinned maybe things were starting to look up.
