Parts in Close Encounters: Set After. No POV:
Jim follows Callie into her house after seeing the 'spaceship.' trying to get the image out of his mind. Maybe he's just a bit hungry. Yeah that was probably it. Right? With this case lately he has barley gotten any food put into his stomach. All his late nights at the station and chats with Carlos about the evidence until the wee hours of the morning. He sniffs back a yawn taking a seat across from his girlfriend. Starring at the food in front of him.
"Hey you okay?" Callie asks.
"Yeah I'm alright.." Jim says wanting to believe it himself.
"You sure?" Callie asks concern filling her voice.
"Mm hmm." Jim answers.
"If your sure."
"I am." Callie sighs continuing to eat her egg roll; watching Jim closely just to make sure. He sits taking bites every few seconds. One after another. Callie eats, the silence growing as thick as fog.
"Callie?" She lifts her head from her food.
""How's Jeff's karate going?"
"Good. I heard he can beat you and considering that he should have a black belt by now."
"Ha ha." Jim said a smile cracking on his face. Callie rolls her eyes looking back a Jim.
"You look pale. Are you sure your feeling okay?" Callie says placing a hand on his forehead.
"No fever, but you might want to go lye down.
"Trust me Cal I'm okay."
"I think you should go lye down." Jim starts to protest, but Callie pushes him
In the guest bedroom and shuts the door locking it.
"This is cruel you know." Jim says.
"Maybe." Callie says. "But if it will make you feel better it's worth it." Jim rolls his eyes.
"I'll let you out in the morning.."
"Why? Can't I sleep on your couch?"
Callie sighs. "Only if you promise to rest."
"I promise." He says. Callie opens the door as Jim smirks. Jim walks out flopping in the couch giving her a quick kiss before lying down and closing his eyes.
"Good Night Cal." He whispers.
"Night Jim sleep tight." Callie whispers draping a blanket over his body, kissing his fore and smiling slightly at him.
"Love you." She mutters leaving the room and she means it. He hears her not making a noise just laying there... Smiling a bit as he hears her leave the room thinking he's asleep.
