You are now Natara Williams: Monday Morning

Typical .It's a busy morning in the bullpen. Although, that's how it usually is. Kai and… well himself are down in the lab doing whatever meets his pleasure ,Blaise and Jeremy are out in the field, collars are in their cubicles going over homicides, Anders is being a hard-ass and Mal is doing a mountains stack of paper work on his chaotic desk. Typical. But one thing changed that morning…

PA: GOOD MORNING OFFICERS. TODAYS DISTURBANCE SPOTS HAVE BEEN PICKED AND LABELED ON THE CLIPBOARD IN THE LONGE. PLEASE SEE LT. ANDERS FOR QUESTIONS. OFFICER MARTINEZ PLEASE REPORT TO SHOOTING RANGE IMMEDIATLEY. AN ALSO, CONGRATULATIONS TO NATARA WILLIAMS ON HER AND CARRY ON WITH YOUR DAY.

Engagement…Engagement… It made me sick to my stomach. Usually brides are overwhelmed from the thought of standing at the altar saying vows, waiting for the worst to happen, but I was terrified. Something about Oscar didn't feel right…

Anyway, I made my way to Mal's office. I expected the tussled brown haired partner that I've known for a year now, getting ahead on cases by skimming and then briefing me on them. But instead there was a worn-out T-Shirted Mal, with a desk with paperwork, clutter with the largest coffee stain I'd ever seen on the rug with a jumbo coffee cup, just like Kai gets.

Natara: Mal?

No response. He did seem pretty worn out. He probably spent all that time last night making time for me and Oscar… or he was trying not to think about. I know what you're thinking. You may think me and Mal like each other, but we don't. That would be very inappropriate and against protocol. But still, me and Mal spent every day together. We are very special to one another. Not being there with him hanging out, and instead being with Oscar kind of bummed me out. Must be bride jitters. Time to work.

You are now Mal Fallon: 10 minutes ago

You daze awake and take in your surroundings. Sleepy eyes, unbuttoned shirt, clutter on your desk and your blinking phone with 10 new missed calls and 1 voicemail. You groan. You've practically been living at the SFPD for about 3 days now. Anything to stop listening about Nataras wedding talk. Usually, you would give anything to listen to her talk. But not at the time and state. Her wedding is about 1 week away, and to distract yourself, you've done almost half the SFPD paper work and go through long nights. Right when you decide to get up a loud blaring comes from the PA and says;

PA: GOOD MORNING OFFICERS. TODAYS DISTURBANCE SPOTS HAVE BEEN PICKED AND LABELED ON THE CLIPBOARD IN THE LONGE. PLEASE SEE LT. ANDERS FOR QUESTIONS. OFFICER MARTINEZ PLEASE REPORT TO SHOOTING RANGE IMMEDIATLEY. AN ALSO, CONGRATULATIONS TO NATARA WILLIAMS AND DISTRICT ATTORNEY OSCAR SANTOS ON THEIR AND CARRY ON WITH YOUR DAY.

Mal: Ah hell…

You completely drop your mood and wish you didn't hear that. The sound of Natara, Oscar and engagement in the same sentence made you want to bash your head in. Not just that but it seems Natara is just as excited as you are. She never smiles talking about Oscar ,let alone the decide to wallow quietly to sleep as your partner,best friend and love fly away.
