Someday [CSI; Grissom/Catherine]  
TITLE: Someday
PAIRING: Grissom/Catherine
SPOILERS: None; pre-series


"Dammit Gil, I am not putting up with this anymore!"

Gil, recovering from the shock of his door bursting open, raised his eyebrows slowly at the irate strawberry blonde that stormed inside, carrying an infant seat. "Eddie?"

"Yes! He was in our bed with another woman this time! I'm done."

He helped her over to the couch with the infant seat and smiled down at baby Lindsey before he addressed Catherine. "You do realize that you've said that about him before?"

"Well this time I'm done! I can't take anymore of this! The fighting, the drinking, the coke, the bruises, the other women, I just - I can't--"

"Okay, okay," he soothed, and pulled her into his arms without a second thought.

She sunk against him and buried her face in his chest, whining, "Why can't I just find someone like you?"

He paused at that, in the midst of running his fingers down through her hair. Softly, he reminded her, "Because you didn't choose me, Catherine. You chose him." He remembered that night, all-too-well, when he told her how he felt, and she responded by telling him she was marrying Eddie. And pregnant.

"I'm an idiot. I don't love Eddie. I love you. You understand me, Gil, you love me."

She was crying now and Gil was completely distraught, never knowing what to do with a crying woman. So he acted on instinct. He pulled away and stopped her tears with his thumbs, stroking her cheeks, and placed a gentle, chaste kiss on her lips.

But he didn't count on Catherine clinging to him as she did. He didn't count on her lips responding, eagerly, or the fact that he instinctively deepened the kiss.

When his head cleared enough to realize she was still far too vulnerable for this to be happening, he pulled away and dropped his head down, leaning his forehead on hers and closing his eyes. "It's late, Catherine, and you're tired. And vulnerable. You should get some sleep."

Catherine sniffled and nodded in agreement, reluctantly pulling away. "You're right," she murmured, eyes still focused on his lips.

"We can talk in the morning," he assured her. "You and Lindsey take my bed. I'll sleep on the couch."

Catherine, still dazed, just nodded again and took the baby carrier down the hall with her, into his bedroom, and shut the door halfway. Gil laid down on the couch then, knowing full-well that there would be no talking in the morning. She would've made up with Eddie by then.

Gil closed his eyes and hoped that someday she'd realize how perfect they were for each other.
