Disclaimer: I own nothing of DDD

This is my first story for DDD although I have written several for CSI. CSI is my all time favorite show but I love DDD as well! I often refer to it as my summer CSI

Hard Choices

Jane Bingum sat on one of the barstools in her kitchen and sighed.

"What's wrong Sweetie?" Her best friend Stacy asked.

"I was just thinking about how Vanessa stood Grayson up at their wedding, he was so devastated. I wanted to tell him to open his eyes because his sole mate is standing right in front of him. I, well Deb, is his true sole mate, not Vanessa."

"Well now that him and Vanessa aren't together maybe you can tell him who you really are."

"I can't Stacy, last time I did he almost got killed, besides that, what would I say Hey Grayson, I'm really Deb, when I died I hit the return button and came back as Jane."

"Sounds logical to me." Stacy said.

"Stacy" Jane said rolling her eyes.

"Ok maybe logical isn't the right word." Stacy admitted. Then her eyes face lit up "I have an idea, why don't you drop hints to Grayson about who you really are, you know, like say and do things that only Deb would know about."

"I have, I've mentioned pumpkin ravioli and I tried to help him relax while dancing by counting the beats in a Russian accent just like Deb did."

"And he still didn't figure out that you were really her?" Stacy asked with disbelief in her voice.

"Stacy no one in their right mind would think that someone is their dead girlfriend in someone else's body just because of a couple of statements and actions."

"Well keep trying, you never know he might figure it out."

"I doubt it, and I'm not sure I want him to figure it out, what is something happens to him again?"

"So what are you going to do?" Stacy asked.

"I don't know but right now I have to go or I will be late." Jane said as she stood up and grabbed her briefcase and headed out the door.

When she got to the law firm she headed towards her office. She saw Fred along the way.

"Come with me to my office." She told him, so he followed her.

"What's up?" he asked her when they had reached her office.

"Look Fred, Grayson has been so upset since his wedding disaster, he misses Vanessa and he misses Deb. Fred I want to tell him that I am really Deb."

"Jane we have been through this, he has to fall in love with you because you're Jane, not because you're Deb."

"Well that doesn't seem to be working." Jane said with exasperation in her voice.

"You know what happened last time you tried to tell him you were Deb." Fred said, his voice sounding like a warning.

Jane sighed "I know" she mumbled.

"Just give it time, you never know, he might fall in love with Jane." Fred said with a warm smile on his face. He then turned and walked out of her office.

"He will fall in love with Jane, I'm going to make sure of it." Jane said to herself as she stood up and left her office so she could go ask Teri who her first client of the day was. She did so with a new sense of purpose.

The end! I hope you enjoyed it! As you can probably tell I really want Jane and Grayson to end up together. I would love reviews; I always love knowing what the readers think about my stories!
