Title: Just My Luck
Summary: Post Fannysmacking, It has been two days since Greg got beat up and everything seemed to go great, until the coroner's inquest came in…
A/N: I do not own CSI, but I wished I did.
It had almost been two days since Greg was beat up. The coroner was checking out Demitrius's body to find cause of death, and the results would be in soon. As Greg paced the break room, the other CSI's came in and checked on him to make sure he was okay. They knew whatever was being decided as cause of death would affect Greg dramatically, no matter what the outcome was. Finally, Nick walked into the break room for a cup of coffee. As he walks in, he spots Greg resting his head on his arms at the table in the middle of the room. After getting his coffee, he sits down across from Greg. "Greg?"
Greg looks up at Nick. The bruises around Greg's face looked more swollen and purple and Nick knew there were more injuries bugging him. "Oh, hey Nick."
"Are you okay?"
"Besides from all the aches in my body? I'm fine."
"Are you worried about the inquest?"
It took Greg a minute to process the question. Nick knew from Greg's expression that he was, but instead, Greg put on a brave face. "No, I'll be fine. I'm not worried."
Nick got up and was about to leave, but he turned around and asked. "Why were you out in the field yesterday? I thought Grissom put you on office duty until the inquest was in."
"Oh, I couldn't stand staying in that office. I needed fresh air."
Suddenly, they heard a beeper going off. They both look down and Greg lets out a sigh. "It's Grissom. He probably has the report. I should go."
Greg pushes past Nick and heads on down to Grissom's office. He looks through each window and sees everyone looking at him. As he walks to Grissom's office, he turns around and finds Catherine, Sarah, Nick and Warrick all standing there. "You guys don't have to come."
"You're not getting rid of us that easily." Says Warrick.
"Besides, Grissom paged us too." Says Catherine.
Greg smiled, knowing his friends…hah! Friends, more like his family, were going to be there for him. They reached Grissom's door and before walking in, they took a deep breath and then opened the door.
