A/N:I own nothing.


I threw my pen down in frustration.I rested my head on my hands.I felt like crap.I picked up my pen and tried to finish my paperwork but my head protested.I threw my pen down again and looked at the clock on my desk-it was noon.I knew I wasn't going to make it through the rest of the day.I decided to go home but I didn't feel well enough to drive. I was just about to call Ben when my phone rang.

"Annie Frost."I answered.

"Hello,Beautiful."

"Ben?I was just about to call you."

"I hope it was to ask me out to dinner."

"No. I was actually wondering if you could come and pick me up."

"Why?What's up?" He asked with worry in his voice.

"Nothin'.Just a little tired and we don't have a case."

"Yeah sure.I just happened to be in the neighborhood. I'll be there in five."

"See you then."I hung up.I got up from my desk. I got really dizzy. I grabbed onto my desk and got a hold of myself.I made my way to the conference room where the team was. I poked my head in, they were all doing paperwork.

"Hey guys, I'm gonna head out."

"Really? It's so early.I mean your usually the first in and the last one out."Luke said.

"Yeah. What's wrong?" Jimmy asked.

"Nothin'. Just decided to head out early."

"Okay."Jimmy said sarcastically.

I started to head to my desk then my phone rang.

"Annie Frost."I answered.

"I'm here." Ben said.

" 'Kay."I hung up.I grabbed my jacket then went outside to meet Ben. He unlocked the car door.I got in and buckled up.

"I have to run a few quick errands before I take you home. Is that okay with you?"

"Yeah."I coughed.

"You feeling okay?" Ben asked.

"Yeah.'course." Ben started the car and I dozed off. I woke up in a cold sweat and I felt worse than I had before I went to sleep.I was sitting in the car in front of the post office. I had chills, my head was pounding, my stomach was turning, and I was dizzy. Ben got back in the car.

"Annie you look like crap."Ben said as he started the car.

"Thanks. Can you turn on the heater?"I said.I started coughing. Ben put his hand on my head.

"Jesus ,Annie! Your burning up. Lets get you home." Ben turned up the heater. I went back to sleep until we got to my apartment. Ben got out of the car and came around my side and opened my door. I stepped out of the car. A really strong dizzy spell hit me. I leaned against the car waiting for it to pass.

"Annie,you okay?" Ben asked cautiously.

"I'm really, really dizzy." I said quietly.

"Okay, okay. Come on lets get you inside."He put his arm around my waist. "Come on we'll go slow."We made it up to my apartment. I took my keys out of my pocket and handed them to Ben. He unlocked the door.

"Nice."He said when we were in. He helped me to the couch. I lied down. Ben sat down by my feet and took off my boots. Then he took the blanket off the back of the couch and draped it over me.

"I'll make you some tea." He said heading towards the kitchen.

"I hate tea." I yelled after him instantly regreting it as it caused my head to pound worse.

"It's good for you." He said opening one of my cabinet. "And you have absolutely nothing in here."

I sighed and got up wrapping the blanket around me. I went to the kitchen and opened the cabinet above the fridge. "There up here."

"Oh. I knew that."He said shutting the cabinet he was looking through.I was about to head back to the couch when the phone rang.

"Annie Frost."I answered.

"Hey Annie it's John, you almost done with those files?"I mentally slapped myself I had left them at work.

"Yeah they'll be done by Friday."

"Thanks a mil. Bye."

"Bye."I hung up.I went back to the couch and put the blanket down and started putting my boots back on.

"Where do you think you're goin'?"Ben said walking over to me.

"I gotta go back to work to get a file."I said trying to stand up but found that the world spun when I did.

"No you're not. You're to sick."He sat down next to me.

"But-"

"No butts, Annie.I'll go get the file."He took off my boots again and eased me back on to the couch and pulled the blanket up to my chin.

"You better not get into trouble with Jimmy or Marco."I warned.

"Your tired. Don't worry about it. Go to sleep.I'll be here when you wake up."He said gently brushing stray hairs out of my eyes.

"You know I'm only letting you do this because I'm tired and I don't feel good, right?"

"Mhh-hmm.I'll stay with you 'till you fall asleep."He moved down to the end of the couch were my feet lifted my feet up and set them on his lap. He started to gently rub my legs.I quickly dozed off.
