A/N: Yes I know that the break up was over a stupid reason but I know people who have broken up on a lot less. I know I said that it was only going to be one or two chapters now I'm not so sure, cause so many things have to happen. So it may be four like the last one. Who knows maybe I'll do a sequel to this one too, I'll have to see what type of feedback I get.
I want to point out that if I owned the characters which I DON'T, hello this would be happening. But until then I'm left writing what's in my mind, which I haven't decided if that's a good or bad thing.
I also want to dedicate this entire story to Nicole101 and her cousin Jaimie Lee. I know how hard it was to loose a cousin but under different circumstances. So this one is for you! And Jaimie may you rest in peace.
On a happier note, just remember you're never alone in this world.
It had been two weeks since they had their little argument in the car and about a month since they broke up. No one knew but they sensed something was off. Grissom not being much of a people person even sensed something and kept them apart.
Expect tonight, one case had come in and no one else had been free, having each just solved their solo case they had been given a few nights before. Grissom felt it was better if two worked it; it was a big one. A triple murder with nothing to go on.
That's what started this hunt for Greg, she looked every where, DNA, trace on a slight hope that he be there but hadn't, Doc Robbins territory, Archie and Jacqui hadn't seen him either. He was missing but hadn't left the building.
"Greg are you-" she said as she opened the locker room door, the sight before her stopped her dead in her tracks. She found Greg but he didn't look too good, worse than he had been the last few weeks. Her heart swelled at the sight of him but also broke in two to see him like this.
He sat staring at his open locker, a far away look in his eyes. She didn't think she knew he hadn't heard her. She stood there for a few seconds wondering if she should leave him alone or see what was troubling him. Not being the one to back down from a challenge she stepped closer and knelt in front of him.
"Greg" he didn't even look at her let alone answer her
"Greg" she said again as she placed a hand on his arm, more for support than actually anything but he finally snapped out of what ever he was in. It was more than her that was troubling him, he almost seemed relieved to see her.
"Greg honey what's wrong?" the word honey slipped out before she could stop it but she liked it.
He cleared his throat before sitting straight up.
"Nothing" he stood putting his cell back in the locker, she hadn't seen it in his hand when she came in.
"I know we have unfinished business but you look like you could use a friend" she said softly
"You can't be my friend Sara"
"How about someone just to talk to"
"You can't be my friend because every time I look at you I want to kiss you senseless"
She was at a loss for words. He was about close his locker when a small blue box caught her eye, she didn't want to sound selfish but she couldn't help but wonder if that was her ring.
"Is that my ring?" he opened the half closed locker back up and looked up at the velvet box.
"Can I see it?"
"Sure it's not like your going to wear it" he handed her the box, the only sound in the room was the small click as the box opened. The lone diamond sat twinkling, almost mocking her, telling her that she could be wearing this if she wasn't such a dickhead.
"It was my grandmother's being the only boy in the family she gave it to me when she died, told me to give it to a special girl one day" she felt the tears sting at the back of her eyes and she had to blink a few times before she could see clearly again. She tried to hand it back to him but he refused to take it
"It has no value to me no girl is going to be as special to me as you were"
"Please Greg don't" the tears were back again
"Just telling the truth"
She had to get him to tell her what was bothering him.
"Please Greg tell me I can't stand to see you like this"
"Well you should have thought about that before you broke your promise" What promise what he talking about?
He walked past her to leave and she did the only thing that would get instant results, she grabbed his arm and tugged him towards her. The look of confusion clearly evident on his face, he was about to ask what she was doing but couldn't because her lips covered his.
"What the…" he trailed off as the kiss ended, she had him in a death grip, her body loving that she was touching him again after so long.
"I'm sorry for everything. I just don't want to be away from you any more" his face said he was relieved but his eyes held pain.
"And if you don't mind, I would like to wear the ring"
"Naturally of course" he smiled as he kissed her for reassurance, but he felt a little guilty for being so happy when he just found out some bad news. The emotion over took him and Sara immediately knew something was wrong.
"What's the matter?" he let go off her but took her hand and led her to the bench where he sat down motioning for her do to the same. He let go of her hand completely and put his head in both of his. The sobs came out the same time Sara sat down. She wrapped both arms around him
"Jaimie Lee killed herself a few hours ago" her heart broke in half again, no one should have to go through the pain of loosing a loved one.
"Oh my god I'm so sorry" her news she had to tell him seemed less important now and could wait. She smoothed down the hair at the back of his neck as the sobs continued to rack through him.
"Did she say why?" she asked in a whisper, it was a few minutes before he answered and she wasn't sure if he heard her or not.
"She left a note not to be angry, but she felt so alone" the sobs were weak now and he was able to talk more
"Mom said that her boyfriend broke up with her, her friends disowned her and she was kicked out of one of the clubs she was into, no one would talk to her"
"I can't even begin to imagine how that must feel"
"I may have been an out cast but at least my friends stood by me"
"When are you leaving, you are going home right?"
"Ya I don't know, there's so much to do, get time off, book a ticket, rent a car, pack"
"I'm going with you"
"Sara you don't have to"
"I want to, unless you don't want me there" she looked down at her hands and the box in her left hand. He lifted her chin with a finger
"Don't you think for one second that I don't want you understood?" she nodded
"Do you wanna work the rest of the shift or go home? I can do the case myself "
"No I can work for the rest of the night"
"Okay ready?" she held out her hand to him, he gladly took it but stopped suddenly.
"Something the matter?"
"Just one thing" he took the box of her hand and opened it,
"Gotta do this right" he got down on one knee and held the box open to her
"Sara will you marry me and watch me grow old and deaf?"
"Well…" she paused he got a little worried
"I think we can get you a hearing aid if you need one but yes I will"
"Great!" he put the ring on her finger and began to walk out again but Sara was one who stopped this time.
"Ya?" he turned and faced her
"Don't ever forget that you're not alone okay?"
"I will if you promise to never break my heart again"
"It's a deal"
