I hope you enjoy this one shot. Let me know what you are thinking.
I was actually gratefully to Strauss for sending us home, it had been a long three days. We all know that this person needs to be caught, he had pictures of all us, as soon as I seen them all I could think about was about my family. I pulled into the small driveway in front of our house, Will was waiting up for me and I knew Henry was trying to stay up.
Will opened the door for me, Henry was hiding behind Will.
"Welcome Home Cher." As he kissed her.
"It's so good to be home. Did Henry go to sleep?" I asked with a smile.
"You know he was in the living room and then he just disappeared." He was playing along.
"Did you look for him?"
"All over the house, he just disappeared."
"Well I'm going to miss him but we should start giving away his toys."
"Cher, I think you are right."
"Mommy I right here!" He yelled as jumped from behind Will.
I couldn't help but smile, he was so full of life.
"Where daddy and you playing a joke on me?" I asked before picking him up.
"I miss you." As he hugged me.
"I missed you too." I whispered.
I had started crying, I was happy to be home and scared for my family at the same time. Will noticed before Henry did, he came over and joined our hug.
The three of us sat on the couch, Henry told me all about his day before he fell asleep.
"Cher, I am glad your home but what changed."
"Strauss came in the room and said that we needed step back from the case. She said because he wasn't active at the moment we needed to work other cases."
"Your still worried." It was more of a question.
"Yes, just because we haven't found anyone doesn't mean he's not active. It also means that everyone still has a guard and I know that you are not happy about that but I also wonder what it is doing to Henry."
"Henry thinks the guy is one of the guys that works with me, so he is fine. You're right I am not thrilled to have someone with us at all times but I also know that it gives you peace of mind to know that he's here."
"I am sorry, I never wanted the two of you put in this position. I just don't know how to handle the thought of either of you being in danger."
"You and I put ourselves in danger every time we go to work. I also know that we would both give our lives for that little boy."
"I know we would. I've been thinking."
"That maybe the two of you should take a trip for a little bit." I whispered my heart was breaking.
"Hey, I've told you this before we are not going anywhere."
"Will, I just want the two of you to be safe. Last year, I thought I lost you and then I think about Jack and what he went through; I never want Henry or you to go through that."
"If either of us was not able to see you or talk to you every day neither of us would last. I love you with everything I have and Henry loves you so much. Jen, we both are thrilled when we know you're coming home it's like everything is made better and when you're gone we both can't wait to receive that call just to hear your voice."
I was in tears, I couldn't help it.
"I don't want you to cry. We are family no matter what and as a family we stick together."
"I love you so much."
"I love you. Let's put the boy to bed."
