"Sara!" He called out, "Sara, wake up." Rushing over to the bed he placed two gentle hands upon her shoulders, "Wake up, you're safe. It's nothing but a dream Sara," He gently shook her jittery form. Suddenly, Sara's eyes shot open and Grissom gazed into two pools of disbelief, surprise, and no acknowledgement whatsoever.

"Get away from me!" She shrieked as she struggled free of his grasp. Frantically backing up, Sara landed with a thud on the floor. Nervously peeking over the side, Grissom's heart broke at what he saw; Sara was sitting with her back against the bed, covering her eyes.

"I'm so sorry," she whispered, "I didn't mean it, I promise." Her shoulders were still slightly shaking as Grissom lowered himself onto the floor and gathered Sara up in his arms. She turned to face him, eyes full of misery. "I didn't mean it," She repeated, "Please don't leave me." Grissom pushed her head on his shoulder and let her cry, while slowly rubbing her back.

"Sara, it's all right. You don't have to worry, I will never leave. Nightmares or no nightmares I will still be here, holding you, caring for you, loving you." Her head jerked up at his statement. Grissom shrugged, "I can't help it Sara, I can't deny my heart." Her eyes pooled up once more as she gave me a soft kiss.

"I really didn't mean it," she said once more, "it was just a nightmare. I thought you were…you were,"

"It's ok, you don't have to explain." He replied soothingly, "I understand." A couple of minutes ticked by as Grissom continued to hold the shaken Sara.

"Griss?" She ventured, "Would you sleep with me?" her hopefully eyes darted down onto his chest, "I mean, you don't have to do anything that you don't want to do or anything, but maybe, you know, if you feel like it, or" He stopped her ramblings with a finger on her lips.

"I would love to, Sara." His eyes showered her uncertainty with genuineness. "And there is nothing in the world that I would not want to do with you. In any sense." His eyes twinkled as Sara's lips captured his in a passionate kiss. The couple barely made it up onto the bed before beginning a new chapter of their lives.

End.
