Disclaimer: I don't own CSI…I know it, you know it, we all know it…

Spoilers: The season 7 finale, Living Doll.

A/N: There's no canon facts about how this is going to happen, so Nick is the barer of bad news as of this story. :)

This one goes out to Kiara! Thank you for getting me through those days where YTDaW was playing up on me! lol. Much appreciated hun.

Walking in the Dark.

-xox-

You know the feeling you get when you walk into a dark room and turn on a light, but it takes a moment for the light to actually illuminate everything?

Those couple of seconds are…strange. For seemingly no reason your heart skips a beat and then speeds up. Your breath catches as you take a step into the room and you're not sure what you're stepping into.

Then the light comes on and suddenly, whether the contents of the room are good or bad, everything is better because you know what's up ahead of you.

That's how I feel when I see Nick today.

I don't know what it is about him that had me panicked, but in that split second before he says it, my heart speeds and my breath catches.

"Griss, Sara's missing."

Three words.

Three words and it doesn't matter anymore. Nothing matters anymore. Only you.

It doesn't matter if the whole world knows about us. It doesn't matter if for once in my life I really let loose at Ecklie. It doesn't matter that we've finally caught the serial killer we've been chasing for months.

None of it matters because when it all comes down to it, you're not here next to me.

When those words leave Nick's mouth I still have trouble breathing and my heart is still racing. It doesn't feel any better knowing what's ahead. It hurts.

It hurts so much. And I need to make the pain go away.

So I will find you.

Sara, I will find you.
