A/N: I think this is probably the last chapter… I need something new to work on and I always have stories in my head (usually inspired by songs and episodes). Thanks to all the replies : ) They made and make me very happy.

Miles from Nowhere Chapter 14

Six months later

Catherine stood at the top of the stairs of the house that she can Grissom had bought. She was wearing a creamy gown, that hugged her in all the right places.  Her blonde hair was swept up with baby's breath in it. It was finally her wedding to day the man she had been waiting her entire life for, and she couldn't be happier.

Sara was waiting at the bottom of the stairs dressed in a lilac A line dress. "Wow, Catherine… You look amazing." Sara said, glad to see her friend smiling so radiantly.

Catherine smiled wider as she stepped down the stairs slowly. "Thank you." She caught her reflection in a mirror and laughed. "I can't get this silly grin off my face."

I'll give my all or not at all
There's no in-between
I'll give my best, won't second guess
This feelin' deep in me

Sara touched her friend's hand when she had reached the bottom step. "And so you shouldn't. It's your wedding day!"

Lindsay came running inside, the door slamming behind her.  "Mommy! Mommy! Uncle Nick is here!"

Catherine nodded. "That means Grissom can't be too far behind. I'm so happy I could burst."

"I wouldn't want to have to process that scene, so keep your guts inside, please." Sara said, trying to crack a joke.

The two of them laughed and then made their way toward the backdoors that Catherine would soon be walking through to see Gil waiting for her at the altar.


Nick glanced at Grissom who was rubbing his sweaty palms on his pants. "You don't want to be doing that Gris."

"I know, I can't help it. I'm nervous."

"Listen, so am I. I have a ring in my pocket that I am going to give Sara after you and Catherine leave on your honeymoon. I'm nervous enough for the both of us."

Grissom laughed. "Why don't you go and see Sara, and come back with a report about how good Catherine looks. Okay?"

Nick nodded, laughing. "From C.S.I to C.I.A, the untold story. Sure I'll play spy."

You make me want to love you
With every breath I'll love you, (oh) endlessly
I'll give my heart, give my soul
I won't hold back, I'll give you everything
All of me, completely

~~Back Inside~~

Nick walked in the front door and smiled instantly when he saw Sara. "Sara?"

Sara whirled around and saw Nick and she looked him up and down. He was absolutely gorgeous in his tux, and she could barely contain her approval of his outfit. "You look amazing." She blurted. Good one Sidle, good one.

Nick laughed and walked toward her. He tucked a piece of hair that had fallen loose from it's up-do behind her ear and then he cupped her cheek with his hand. He took of his sunglasses to get a better look at her. "You are gorgeous." He kissed her softly on the lips, but knew that Catherine would have a fit if Sara's makeup was mussed.

"Thank you."  Sara blushed underneath the makeup.

He stepped back and then held her at arms length. He cleared his throat. "Listen, Sara, I was going to wait until after Gris and Catherine were gone, cause I didn't want to ruin their day, but there is something I wanted to say."

Immediately the worst possibilities went through her mind. "Wh… What is it?" She said stuttering.

Nick reached into his pocket and pulled out the box that held her ring. He got down on one knee, while still holding her hand. "Sara Sidle, you are the only woman I have ever loved. Would you do me the honor of being my wife?"

You fill me up with your love
Oh I just overflow
When we touch, can't get enough
And I want you to know

Sara sniffled, and blinked rapidly, her eyes filling with tears. "Oh Nick." She breathed when she saw the ring sparkling in the box. "I don't know what to say…" She looked at him in the eyes.

Nick stood up and slipped the ring partially onto her finger. "Say yes." He whispered and when she nodded, he put the ring completely on her finger.

She threw her arms around his neck. "I love you so much!" She cried.

Catherine walked over and looked at Nick and Sara. "Nick, what are you doing in here, where is Grissom?"

Sara turned to her smiling. "Listen ,Catherine, there is something that I have to tell you. I mean, you know that I wouldn't do anything to steal your thunder today, so I am going to keep it under wraps, but…" Sara smiled and showed Catherine the ring.

Catherine let out a squeal and hugged Sara. "When…?"

"Just now… I just asked Sara to be my wife and she accepted." Nick said, his arm around Sara. "I hope it's okay with you that I…"

Catherine hit him playfully in the arm. "Of course, ya big lug! Now go and see Grissom! Let's get this show on the road."

Nick kissed Sara and then exited the way he came, his smile radiating through the entire building.

Warrick cleared his throat. Catherine saw her friend and smiled. "Warrick! Are you ready to walk me down the aisle?" Catherine had decided that she wanted someone that was close to both her and Grissom to walk her down the aisle. Warrick had been her first choice.

Warrick smiled. "I would be honored." He held out his arm, and she took it and they walked to the back door.

Lindsay when first down the aisle, spreading flower pedals as she went. Sara was next and Nick found himself daydreaming about her walking down in a wedding dress. "She looks so beautiful, doesn't she?" He whispered to Grissom, who's eyes were fixed on the back door, waiting for Catherine's arrival.

Grissom merely nodded, his attention obviously elsewhere. He inhaled sharply when he saw Catherine step outside. He only remembered a few moments later that he was holding his breath. He exhaled shakily, his nerves making him feel muddled. Catherine smiled at him from the aisle as she walked down with Warrick. He felt her smile all the way down to his toes. Suddenly, he wished that they were already on their honeymoon.

You make me want to love you
With every breath I'll love you, (oh) endlessly
I'll give my heart, give my soul
I won't hold back, I'll give you everything
All of me, completely

The ceremony was shorter than Catherine remembered, but this one was definitely sweeter. They danced the night away, cheek to cheek almost oblivious to everything that was happening around them.

Sara and Nick were sitting on opposite sides of the bride and groom, so they were not able to sit together, so they followed Grissom's and Catherine's idea of dancing the night away in each others arms.  "You have made me so happy, Nick…" Sara whispered as they continued dancing.

"And you have made me very happy Sara…." Nick said, trailing off. He could barely seem to be able to speak today without getting a little choked up.  He had her love and he realized that was all he would ever need to survive.

Sara smiled. She finally found someone that loved her for the way she was and she was never happier. She knew that Nick was her rock, her sounding board, her everything; and she didn't want to let him go.

Grissom smiled. Catherine was the one person who made him feel whole. Like someone of worth and value. He had waited his whole life to finally feel that way with a woman, and that day had come, and he knew he would cherish it in years to come.

Catherine grinned. Today was the happiest day of her life. Not only had she found someone that loved her, but someone who loved her daughter as well. She looked over and saw Lindsay and waved. Her life was complete. She had the family she had always wanted.

You make me want to love you
With every breath I'll love you, (oh) endlessly
I'll give my heart, give my soul
I won't hold back, I'll give you everything
All of me, completely
