Summary: Grissom gives Catherine a quick lecture.


"What is wrong with you?" Grissom asked Catherine who could only stand in the corner of his office.

"I dunno," she replied whispering.

"Catherine…. I'm sorry. It's just that I am trying to tell you how I feel about this and I just want to explode."

"Welcome to my world," Catherine said finally without her voice shaking, "It's like this all of the time. I know. It…you just doesn't know what to do."

"Cath, I know what to do," Grissom said walking up to her. He grabbed her hands and looked into her eyes, "You could have told me sooner that you were pregnant. I mean 7 weeks?" Catherine smiled and nodded, "How long did you know?"

"About 2 weeks. Linds has known 1 week. I know I should have told you sooner, but I didn't want you to turn away from me."

"By having my baby?"

"Are you ready to focus on another thing? It'll be work, Linds, the baby and then me. It was hard for you to focus on me and work, then Linds…."

"Catherine, I know but now I feel devoted. I mean, I'm going to be a dad. I mean my own blood to carry on the Grissom's."

Catherine smiled and kissed him on the lips. A passionate kiss was shared in the middle of Grissom's office.

"You're going to be a daddy and I'm going to be a mommy…again."


The End… or TBC

R&R please

Does this seem like a kind of short chapter?
