Grounds For Deception

Disclaimer: I don't own anything of CSI.

This is what I wish would happen in the episode entitled Grounds For Deception, it might contain a few spoilers. It will even go beyond that 'episode' with Smacked activity. This is my second CSI NY fan-fic, the first was bad so I didn't finish it. so here's the story.

"There is an armed man at 43rd Street and Broadway. He has three held captive in the parking garage, we need backup immediately.," the radio in Flack's pocket announced. They just finished the third crime scene that night, he rushed over to Mac and Stella who were discussing something.

"Guys, we need to head for the parking garage on 43rd and Broadway. There's an armed man holding three captive."

"Well then, let's go see what's up," Stella got up from the curb and they got into the car and drove to the garage.

They search all of the floors, but couldn't find him, Stella was heading to the top floor and someone called her. Stella slowly turned around…

"Kolovos, what are you doing here?" she asked fiercely.

Flack and Mac show up seconds later. "Stella, did you find the…" Flack notices the guy standing next to her. "So apparently, you did," he frowns at the guy.

"Where are the hostages?" Mac asked.

"Oh you'll enjoy this, look in the elevator," he smirks fiercely. Mac and Flack walk slowly to the elevator and Mac pressed the button. Once it opened there were two bloody, decapitated bodies.

"There's one missing."

"Yeah, you're one smart man," he gleams.

Stella was unaware, but she called the armed man by his name where she asked…

"George Kolovos, where's the other?"

"Why don't you look over the railing and find out, Officer Bonasera?" Stella walks slowly and looks over the rail. There was a male hanging by his neck. She looks back and Kolovos was gone.

"Where did he go?" Stella asked nervously.

"I don't know," Flack states, "I want to know where Mac went."

The armed man comes from behind a corner, having his arm around Mac's neck and holding a gun to his head. Stella gasps loudly.

"Somebody takes one step and he gets shot."

They stand there quietly for about ten minutes and then he lowers his gun. He pushes Mac to the floor, "You stay there," he goes over to Stella and Flack. "And you," he points to Flack, "lay down on the floor."

Flack nods and does what he told him. He grabs Stella by the arm and makes her sit by one of the poles. He had a rope by this pole, and he made her put her arms around the back. First he tied her up by the waist, and he made sure that she was secure. George walked over to Flack and took his walkie talkie and his cell phone, and he did the same with Mac. He throws them against the wall, then he grabbed the fire extinguisher. The three wondered what he was going to do with it. he smashes it against Mac and Flack's head twice, until he knew they were unconscious.

"Too bad you have no good backup. I would love to watch you struggle, but I really must get going," he grins and walks away. Stella wanted to cry, but she knew she had to stay strong, she knew that Mac wouldn't let her cry.

She got to thinking what she'd gotten them into, Stella was beating herself up for disobeying Mac and going on with this Greek coin case. She was at it for an hour and she really needed to pee. She looked up and saw Flack move a little, he was getting his consciousness back.

"Stella," he said weakly. "Are you all right?"

"For the most part," she frowns and Flack crawls over to her, "I can't believe he did this to you," he stated as he was untying her. Once he was done they both got up, Flack hugged Stella tightly. Stella released and ran to Mac.

"Wake up Mac, please." Flack walks over to her.

"He'll get up soon. While we're waiting we should contact the crew back at the lab."

"But he smashed up the phones…"

"Don't you have a phone?"

"I did, but I don't know where it went."

"You stay here with Mac and I'll to find the phone," she nods and kneels down next to him and Flack disappeared.

"Mac everything will be okay. I'm sorry that I disobeyed you. I really shouldn't because the truth is… I hate not doing what you tell me I shouldn't."

Flack comes back minutes later holding her phone, "I found your phone," he smiles. Stella gets up and takes her cell phone and dials Adam's number.

"Stella, is that you, we've been worried. Where's Mac and Flack?"

They're here with me. Adam, we need everyone to come with their things and meet us at the parking garage on 43rd and Broadway."

"All right Stella, we'll be there as soon as possible," he hangs up the phone.

"They're coming, well let's tend back to Mac," she said and they go over to him. "It's all my fault Flack, I wanted to work on the Greek coin case," she became silent for a while.

"It'll be all right Stell, you should tell Mac though."

"I'm afraid to," she frowns.

"When you tell him, I'll be right behind you, okay? Mac shouldn't be mad, he just wants you to be safe." Stella nods slightly; about a half an hour later Danny, Adam, Hawkes, and Angell came.

"What do you want us to do?" Danny asked.

"We got three victims, two are in the elevator, and one is hanging on the side of the building."

They all get to work, except Adam who wanted to talk to Stella.

"I was getting worried about you guys, I tried calling all of you a lot of times. So, what exactly happened?" Stella told Adam the whole story. "Well, that sucks, is Mac going to be all right?"

"I hope so," she mumbled. It was ten till eleven once they've finished. Mac was still unconscious. Lindsay was in Mac's office with her baby, angry that she couldn't come with them. Danny soon comes in the office.

"Are you going to be all right Linds?"

"Yeah I'm fine, is Stella all right?"

"I'm good," Stella said as she came in.

"Thank goodness," Lindsay smiles.

"I feel a heart to heart convo coming on, I'll be… somewhere," he smiled and left. Stella closed the door.

"Stell, what's up?"

"It was all my fault."

"Your fault, what?"

"That this happened, I got involved with a case that Mac told me not to."

"Does he know about this?"

"No, but he might. That's what I want some advice on. Should I tell him?"

"That would be the best thing to do, you won't feel as guilty as if you don't tell him."

They spent twenty minutes on the situation.

"Thanks for the help."

"No problem, Stella. Well I should be heading home," she said looking up at the clock on the wall.

"Good night," they said to each other. Lindsay left with her baby.
