Catherine and Sara passed the receptionist's desk.

"Package for Miss Sidle."

Sara smirked at Catherine. She took the plant from the receptionist and admired it. "From Grissom." She stated proudly, in front of Catherine.

Catherine shook her head, unbothered by Gil's gesture.

"Jealous?" Sara grinned.

"Package for Miss Willows." The receptionist interrupted.

Catherine was about to leave when the receptionist handed her a large bouquet of flowers of exotic flowers; colours and aromas infiltrating her senses. She was mesmerized by the ensemble, knowing that someone had picked each with reason. "Love ... Gil." She read, her smiling eyes challenging Sara's smirk.
