Thanks again for all the reviews and to CSI Granger! Here is the next chapter…

He stood there looking like a nervous school boy, shuffling his feet. Grissom was wearing; a tight fitted black T-shirt, lose black trousers and black shoes. He had requested the song 'Black and Gold' by Sam Sparrow. The music began to play and Grissom began to sing.

The fish swam out of the ocean
and grew legs and they started walking
and the apes climbed down from the trees
and grew tall and they started talking

His eyes were scanning around the room, trying to locate the table, at which his fellow co-workers sat, while singing at the same time.

And the stars fell out of the sky
and my tears rolled into the ocean
now I'm looking for a reason why
you even set my world into motion

When he found the table he immediately looked at Sara, staring into her eyes; they were still a little puffy from when she was crying. All she could do was stare straight back; the more she stared the more she could see the raw emotion and passion that was hidden in the depths of him. Grissom saw how Sara was looking at him and winked at her. She wasn't quite sure whether her mouth fell completely open or not, but when she finally registered what he'd done; she winked back.

'cause if you're not really here
then the stars don't even matter
now I'm filled to the top with fear
but it's all just a bunch of matter
'cause if you're not really here
then I don't want to be either
I wanna be next to you
black and gold
black and gold
black and gold

Throughout the whole verse he and Sara both had smiles plastered over there faces, Catherine caught Grissom smiling and followed his line of gaze to...Sara?

Sara... Grissom and Sara!

They're, together?!



Well duh, look at the way he's looking at her!

I looked up into the grey sky
and see a thousand eyes staring back
and all around these golden beacons
I see nothing but black


I feel a way of something beyond them
I don't see what I can feel
if vision is the only validation
then most of my life isn't real

She gave Grissom one of her famous Sara Sidle smiles.

God, she hasn't smiled at me like that in ages.

Well it shows you're doing something right then!

'cause if you're not really here
then the stars don't even matter
now I'm filled to the top with fear
but it's all just a bunch of matter
'cause if you're not really here
then I don't want to be either
I wanna be next to you
black and gold
black and gold
black and gold

He took his gaze off of Sara. Just for a second...

Black and gold
black and gold
black and gold

When he next looked at the table, he expected to see Sara there, sitting staring at him...but she wasn't. He started to panic, wondering where she had gone. He quickly started to move from side to side on the stage, looking around. But he remembered that he was onstage, singing, so he couldn't exactly run and ask them where she had gone. He regained his confidence and carried on singing.

'cause if you're not really here
then the stars don't even matter
now I'm filled to the top with fear


but it's all just a bunch of matter
'cause if you're not really here
then I don't want to be either
I wanna be next to you
black and gold
black and gold
black and gold

As the song came to an, he practically sprinted towards their table; ss he neared the table he realised that Sara still wasn't there.

"Catherine, where's Sara?" He asked calmly.

"She went to the bar, only a minute ago."

"Right, OK, thanks."

Grissom set out on his journey to bar. He located Sara sitting on her own, on a table for two. She spotted him, smiled, and then waved him over.

"Hi"

"Hey"

"Why are you not with the rest of the team?"

"Oh, I fancied some alone time, you know, just to mull things over."

"What things?"

"Err...just stuff."

"What stuff? Come on Sara you can tell me"

"Ok, but promise you won't run away"

"Run away? I'm sorry Sara, but you're confusing me." He looked at her with confusion searing in his eyes.

"For someone as intelligent as you, you really are thick sometimes. I'm going to tell you something and I don't want you to ignore the fact that I've told you or pretend that it never happened. Ok?"

"Err...ok?" Involuntarily, his hands started to rub together.

"Alright then, I'm...I," Sara stuttered. Looking at the floor she took a deep breathe,



"I think, I'm…"

"I love you." Grissom blurted out, cutting her off completely.

"In lo-, wait, what?" She heard loud and clear what he said, a giddy grin soon encompassed her.

"I, I love you too!"

At the end of her sentence Grissom leaned forwards and kissed her tenderly. It took a second for Sara to react but when she realised that Gil Grissom was kissing her she soon kissed him back. What was once an innocent kiss turned into a full blown battle of tongues.

Sara suddenly pulled back.

"Wait, I have to do something. I'll be back wait at the table for me."

"Err...ok." But by the time he had replied she had already gone.

"Catherine, I need a favour."

"Oh, all right."

"I need you to…"
