Alex chewed the end of her pen and wrinkled her nose. She was oblivious to everything around her. Her stomach growled as she munched on the dreaded Wheat Thins. She sighed and tried to imagine that the bland grain filled cracker was a bag of Skittles. She huffed and gave up a few minutes later, tossing the almost full box into the trash.

Goren heard the box hit the can and looked up. "What...you're on a diet again, aren't you?" When she gave him the go to hell look that she was famous for his hands went up in surrender.

She softened. "I...just...I never crave them until I tell myself I can't have them."

A/N: please be kind...i'm not even sure if this falls into the angst category but this...is my first attempt at a Criminal Intent drabble. I've done others but...well, I'm long winded and I suck.

A/N #2: These were posted at the livejournal community, lawandorder100 originally and I thought I'd share them here as well. Two more will follow this one.
