A/N: This is in response to fanfic challenge and I hope you enjoy it. It's just a little Catherine/Brass fluff.

Reward

"This is gonna hurt!"

She whacks him on the arm in mild agitation, and rolls her eyes at his behavior. "Oh stop being such a baby, Brass - you're a cop - suck it up!"

"Hey isn't that spousal abuse? Besides its your fault I'm in this predicament in the first place, so you should be nice to me."

"First of all you have to be married to suffer spousal abuse. And in case you hadn't noticed we're not married - yet. Secondly - how is my fault?"

"Well if you didn't distracted me while I was holding a knife I wouldn't be facing the possibility of being scarred for the rest of my life."

"Now you're just being a drama queen. Besides I don't recall you complaining at the time about my "distraction"."

"You wearing nothing but a smile? Whatever you CSIs may think, I am only a man and darling you could give a blind man a hard-on."

Catherine blushes prettily and gives him a kiss on the cheek.

"Jimmy, baby you sure know how to make a girl's ego feel all warm and tingly - not to mention her body." she purrs into his ear, "but we are getting off topic. THIS needs to come off now!"

"But it's gonna hurt!"

"Jim on the count of three it comes off like it or not. Okay?"

"Okay" he says in defeat as he turns his head and prepares for the worst.

"3" Catherine grips the bandage and quickly pulls it off with one yank. "There that wasn't bad was it?" Dangling between thumb and forefinger is one of Lindsey's Little Mermaid bandages.

"No, it wasn't that bad. Does this mean I get a reward for being a good boy?"

"Come to my room and I'll reward you real good." her voice low and sultry.

Leaning over she gives him a kiss that leaves no doubt in his mind what kind of reward he's going to be receiving from the fiery strawberry blonde. After several minutes she pulls away and brazenly struts to her bedroom leaving Brass to catch up with her.
