Ok, this is just a short one-shot. Some season 9 spoilers and a forewarning, this is pretty depressing (I had just watched the 905 promo) so I wasn't in the mood to write humour. Thank you to my awesome beta, CSI Granger!

"I wish that, we could talk in person, but I'm…happy…" Sara stated as she shuffled in her chair.

"I know that, after so long if a relationship can't move forward it withers…" She looked down at the floor for a split second.

"You know… I thought that we could survive anything…" Grissom sat watching the recorded video trying his best not to cry.

"We can. Don't do this Sara…"Grissom whispered as he brought his hands up to his face and wiped the single tear that had slipped down his cheek.

I hate to tell you, it's a recorded video…she isn't going to reply.

"I thought that…together, nothing could break us apart…" Her eyes began to tear up as she turned away from the camera for a second to grab a tissue.

"I am so sorry…" Sara began to wipe the tears that were now flooding down her cheeks.

"Don't be it's not your fault…" Grissom pleaded with the unresponsive screen.

"I…we…can't be together like this. You said before that 'maybe he needed her to leave him'…well…I'm sorry but if you need me to leave you…" Sara stopped she couldn't say it.

"Don't leave me…don't…please…I need you, you can't do this…" Grissom shouted at the screen.

"Then I will…" Sara said as she looked down at the floor tears flowing at full force now. "I'm sorry." She whispered before she turned off the recording.
