Ok, so I'm in a very writing-y mood tonight and I've always wanted to do a Rachel and Gill fic… I don't know why, I think they're cute ;-)
Thanks to Megan for the help!
Anyway, hope its ok, hope you enjoy!
Gill knocked on Rachel's door.
She waited a couple of seconds before knocking again.
"I'm coming!" a small voice cried from the other side.
Rachel lifted herself off the hotel bed and stumbled around the floor; she tripped over on her bag and landed up against the wall, before grabbing the handle and opening the door to her Boss.
"Can I come in?"
"Yeah…I was just, er…packing" Rachel stumbled, moving out of the way for Gill to come in.
"You did right"
Gill took a seat on the edge of the coffee table, and Rachel perched on the end of the bed, looking intently at her Boss.
"It's bad news"
"Who's Dom? No, not Dom. I've have a call from the CPS in Manchester. They're dropping the attempted murder charge against Nick Savage. I know…its, ridiculous doesn't even start to cover it"
"So what are they charging him with?"
"Nothing. They're saying there's insufficient…they're saying there's no evidence"
"So he's going to walk?"
"Well he'll never walk as a barrister again and I presume his marriage is stuffed but that's the upshot, yes"
"He knows where I live"
"I'm sure he won't try anything like that again"
"He's got keys to my flat"
"Change the locks…are you alright? Stupid question. Do you want to hear some other news?"
"I don't know. Do I?"
"They picked Hibbert up, two hours ago. They found his keys, they found his phone, they found a few other things that could link him to Leech anyway he's confessed, he's confessing, about everything about Leech, about how he coached him, told him about the things he'd done. Anyway the point is Rick Wallis wants us to talk to Leech again to put it to him that Hibbert is making these allegations. I said we would, what do you think?"
"Yeah…Dom's my brother by the way, he was at my birthday thing, and he probably didn't speak to you"
There was an awkward silence whilst they stared at each other. Rachel's eyes were welling up with tears as she turned her head, not wanting her boss to see her cry. She felt a hand touch her leg, and she jumped, looking back at Gill.
"Come here kid" Gill said, pulling her towards her. The younger woman burst out into tears, sobbing into Gill's chest. "It's ok. It's ok to cry sometimes. We have to let out our emotions" Gill said, running her fingers through Rachel's hair.
This just set Rachel off more. "I'm so sorry Gill" she muffled, pulling away, trying to dry her eyes.
"It's ok. Come on, let's go and get a drink yeah? Or I run down to the bar and get a few bottles if you don't feel like going out? Forget I'm your Boss for one night; treat me like a friend ok?" Gill said, standing up.
Rachel smiled and nodded, padding into the bathroom to wipe her eyes. Gill disappeared out of the hotel room, whilst Rachel dabbed her face. She could pinch herself, for crying in front of Gill.
Gill came back ten minutes later with four bottles of wine. "Sorry I took so long, they would only let me buy two at the bar so I went to the off license." She babbled, pouring the first glass and climbing on the bed, the opposite side to Rachel. She crossed her legs, and offered Rachel a drink.
Rachel finished it in one gulp, as Gill stared at her with wide eyes. "Blimey! I always thought I was the heavy drinker" she exclaimed. "Yeah well, on a day like today, I need it" Rachel said, pouring another glass. "Just so long as you don't throw up much, drink as much as you like" Gill said, clinking their glasses together.
As the night went on, they had made their way through several bottles of wine, and were on their last bottle. Rachel had cried a lot over Savage, cried a lot over Dom, and cried a lot over Sean. Ill had been so supportive, and she felt tears prick into the corners of her eyes when she started talking about Dave. "I made a really bad decision once…" she began, fighting her tears back and making sure her young DC didn't see them.
Rachel was feeling awfully ill afterwards. She had finished ¾ of the last bottle to her herself, taking Gill's glass off her and drinking it in one. "Quiet finished there Sherlock?" Gill said dryly, as she watched Rachel but the wine bottle up to her eye and tip it, seeing if there was any left.
"Look Gill! It's a telescope!" Rachel cried, holding the bottle up to her eye and waving it around. Gill snatched it from her and put it on the side. "Yes well I think you would make an excellent pirate, but in your state right now, I think it's time to lose the parrot on your shoulder and get your head down. You will feel that headache in the morning, and I need you to interview Leech for me. I'm a chief inspector; I haven't handled an interview in 10 years"
Rachel just groaned and flopped onto the pillow, then bounced back up again after realising it wasn't a pillow she put her head on, but the table next to the bed. "Just stay in your clothes for tonight, I'm not helping you change." Gill said, pulling Rachel's shoes off.
Rachel just groaned, her vision going extremely blurry.
Gill sat back on the bed, and looked at Rachel waffling on about how much of an embarrassment she has been, and how she hopes Gill will keep all the crying and drinking to herself.
Gill agreed of course, she wouldn't want anything she said about Dave spread either. She knew she could trust Rachel, even if she was a bit of a loose cannon sometimes.
Their topic of conversation moved onto jokes, and how pathetic Kevin's were. "Ok I've got one 'I'll tell you what I love doing more than anything - trying to pack myself in a small suitcase. I can hardly contain myself.'" Rachel burst out laughing at her own joke, whilst Gill smiled politely.
"Here's another one…um… 'I saw this man and woman wrapped in a barcode. I said: "are you two an item?' "Rachel snorted again, giggling really loudly.
Gill began to laugh this time, and tried to think of ones she had heard before; "Ok, what about 'I sent my friend a huge pile of snow. I rang him up and said: "Did you get my drift?"' also, um… went to the zoo the other day, there was only one dog in it. It was a shitzu."
Gill and Rachel looked at each other, keeping straight faces, and then burst out laughing.
"Okok! What about; "two cats were having a race across the channel. The English cat was called one two three, and the French cat was called un deux trois. Which cat won?"
Gill shook her head as she tried to work it out.
"One two three did, because un deux trois quatre cinq" Rachel laughed again, trying her hardest not to let tears of happiness fall down her cheek.
Gill found herself staring at Rachel. Not at Rachel, but at Rachel's lips.
Rachel stopped her laughing and stared at Gill.
Gill looked up into Rachel's eyes.
"What?" she replied, looking equally confused.
"Why were you staring?"
"Yes you were"
"It's ok, but why were you staring?"
Rachel's hand touched Gills knee, making her tense up.
Rachel gasped and removed her hand quickly, but still stared into Gill's eyes. It was like they were in some sort of trance.
Gill leaned in and kissed her DC gently, before pulling away and looking at the floor. "I'm so sorry. I shouldn't have. I don't know what came over me; I don't want to take advantage"
"Gill shut up a second. I don't care, you're not taking advantage. It was cute"
Rachel kissed her again, crawling over her slightly, lying Gill down on the bed.
Rachel's hands wrapped around Gill, whilst she ran her hands through Rachel's hair…
Gill lay next to Rachel quietly. "We shouldn't have anything. You have Sean, I'm your Boss, we are both very drunk and we're away"
Rachel let out a sigh and turned towards Gill, following the shape of her face with her fingers. "Shh" Rachel mumbled, kissing her more.
Gill moaned and let Rachel move closer, they were inches apart from each other now, and could feel each other's breaths.
Rachel wrapped her legs around Gill and cradled her, both falling to sleep on each other's chests.
Rachel awoke the next morning and turned over. Gill had her back to her and was on her side. Rachel slid up next to her and wrapped her hand around Gill's waist, then slowly kissed her neck.
Gill turned over and moaned. Rachel continued with the kissing, forcing Gill to turn fully over and face her. Rachel brushed a piece of hair from Gill's face and stared into her eyes. "Morning beautiful" she whispered, kissing her again.
Gill just smiled and lay in the company of the brunette.
"What time is it?" she asked, sitting up slightly.
"6. We don't have to interview Leech until midday, which means we have this morning to ourselves…" Rachel replied, raising one eyebrow. Gill smirked and kissed the younger woman, pulling her closer. She sat up and pulled away, sliding out of bed.
Rachel tried to pull her back, but Gill was already on the other side of the room, collecting together her clothes. "Where are you going?" Rachel whined. "Back to my room. I'm sorry Rachel, we were drunk just…" Gill broke off as she sniffled. "It's just too much. I'm sorry, you've got Sean, I've got Chris and it should stay that way"
With that, Gill ran along the corridors and into the lift. She tried to grab her key from her bag, spilling the contents across the lift. "Oh buggar" she spat, picking up her folders and shoving all her personal things back in. She picked up her diary, and a picture fell out. It was from the office party they held in the summer week. It was of Rachel, her and Janet. They all looked so happy. Rachel was holding a bottle of vodka and was trying to kiss Gill's cheek, Gill was trying to push her away and Janet was looking bemused. Her eyes were wide and she was laughing at the fact Rachel was trying to snog her Boss.
Gill started to remember the night. The conversation was vivid in her mind.
'I looooove you Bossss. You are a very smexshy personnn. Yoou can beeee a bitch sometimes, but I looooove you Gillian. Kissss meeee.'
'yes ok Rachel we get it, you're very drunk and very nice. Now let's get you home to Nick shall we?'
'noooo. I'm fineddd. I jusstt want a kisss. From Gulllll. She's very hottt. Look at those cheeeeeks.'
'yes, yes Gill's cheekbones are very nice but I really think you should go home. You will not feel any better if you snog the face off Gill or go home and sleep it off.' Janet grabbed Rachel's wrist, and tried to take the vodka off her.
'nooooo. I'll go in a bitt…first I waaaant a picture of youu. I loooove you twoooo. I want a neeeeww picture for facebooook. Hahahahahaha' Rachel burst out laughing as she shoved a camera to Kevin.
Gill stroked Rachel's face, remembering the previous night. She looked closer at the picture and saw Rachel had her hand around Gill's shoulders. 'I loooove you' she remembered Rachel moaning.
The doors of the lift opened on and Gill jumped. She hit the 5th floor button and began to go back down. She ran back towards Rachel's room and bashed on the door.
Rachel opened the door and stood there, looking like she had been crying. "What?" she said bluntly, swaying in the door. "Rachel I'm sorry. I shouldn't have left. I was an idiot. I love you" Gill forced her way in, dropping her bag and kicking the door shut.
She grabbed Rachel's waist and pulled her close, kissing her neck. Rachel gasped and broke away. "What made you change your mind?" "I don't know. I came to my senses…now shut up and kiss me" Gill said, pulling Rachel's shirt out from her trousers.
Gill and Rachel walked into the briefing room at Bristol at ten to twelve. No one else was there yet, but they knew Rick or Ed would be in soon. They dusted down their hair for the third time, making absolutely sure it wasn't obvious. They spent the next three hours in the office, interviewing Leech and charging Hibbert. They said their goodbyes to everyone in Bristol, and made their way back to Manchester.
"So…what are you doing tonight?" Gill asked, breaking the silence. "Nothing I don't think, Sean's probably going to be like a lost puppy and Dom's probably going to be out…what are you doing?"
Gill sighed; Rachel was always slow with the personal things. "Rachel, listen to me! What are you doing tonight?" she turned to face the brunette, winking. "Ohhhhhh... nothing…I'll phone Sean tell him traffics bad and will just stay at yours…if that's what you want"
"Do you even have to ask" Gill replied, stroking Rachel's thigh.
Rachel pushed her off and began to laugh. "You will have enough time for that later, if you want to stick your foot down. I'm finding it hard to resist at the moment"
This time it was Gill who smirked. "Well you know what they say…it's always the quiet ones"
They arrived back at Gill's at 5, and even though it was still light, they went straight in and shut all the curtains. Sammy was out for the night with Orla, so they had the piece to themselves.
"Come on, we'll get a takeaway, and curl up on the sofa under a blanket. It's going to be cold tonight and our boilers not working" Gill said, throwing her bags onto the table.
"Orrrr…." Rachel replied, grabbing Gill by the waist and kissing the back of her neck. "We could just go upstairs and…" Rachel winked at Gill and Gill immediately knew what she meant.
"Rachel Bailey you naughty girl! Although…that does sound tempting" Gill said, grabbing her hand and pulling her up the stairs, Rachel squealed and ran up behind her..
Hope it was okaaay!
