New revised chapter
Gil awoke early the next morning trying not to disturb Sara, he slowly loosened his grip on her and slid out from under the blanket. Walked over to the fireplace and re-lit the fire. As he finished he heard a noise, he went over to the front door and looked out the window.
That night it had snowed, not much only a light dusting, which glistened as the sun started to rise. He looked at the tree line and saw a baby doe, it?s mother guiding it along the path back into the woods. Intrigued he kept watching as mother and child drifted off. Hearing Sara stir he turned around, he pasted a smile on his face.
?Good morning, how did you sleep my lovely bride??
Sara yawned and smiled back at Gil ?Rather peaceful you??
He didn?t answer right away, knowing it?d lead back to their conversation from last night. He longed for a new life, he also knew he didn?t want to loss Sara.
Lying to her replied ? Very well.? Slowly walking over to her, as he knelled down he leaned in and kissed his wife softly on the lips, ?I love you Sara Sidle, I will always love you no mater what.?
Sara cocked her head and looked deep into Gil's deep blue eyes, she knew he?d been thinking about what he?d said last night. Not wanting to discuss it she quickly grabbed him, and kissed Gil passionately.
Sara ?How?s that for a morning kiss, there?s more where that came from. Hey Gil I?m famished what?s for breakfast?? She smiled and kissed him again, quickly jumped up and ran to the bathroom.
His eyes watched her every move, her soft curves and firm long legs quickly moving. Gil longed to hold Sara and make her feel as he did, knew he?d better let it go.
?How about some toast and tea? I?ll go get the kettle on.? He walked into the small kitchen and pumped the pipes to get the water flowing. Found a kettle and lit the stove and put it on to boil. ?Sara you coming? Sara??
Sara was washing up in the bathroom, trying to think of the right words to say to Gil.
Thinking back, she?d left CSI and headed back to San Francisco to find herself, once she heard Warrick had been murdered she caught the first flight back to Vegas. It wasn?t a easy time. Seeing Gil again she knew they could never be apart.
After back and forth they finally decided to do what felt right get married. Why not, other couples did it, why shouldn?t they have happiness.
Splashing cold water on her face, she heard Gil open the bathroom door.
Gil ?Sara did you hear me calling you? Everything okay??
Sara ? Sure why wouldn?t it be? Didn?t hear you calling me. Sorry baby, is breakfast ready??
Trying to avoid his comment. Knowing deep in her heart he might just be right in them getting away, and starting a life together. Why shouldn?t they be happy? What was keeping her from leaving Vegas, who or what matter except Gil. Trying to think positive, she finished drying herself off and walked out to the living room.
Over in the corner was a small table, Gil had sat out two plates and cups for tea and toast.
?Come on honey lets go eat, and have some warm tea.? grabbing her by the waist he guided Sara to the table, and pulling out the chair she sat down.
?Thanks Mr. Grissom, don?t mind if I do, am famished.? she gave him a cocked smile as she leaned her head to one side, as if to ask him a question.
He hadn?t noticed, as always he was in his own world, which Sara hoped had room for her.
Gently he grabbed her hand and helt it, she felt cold from the washing. He softly rubbed her fingers, reaching down with the other hand, he pulled out a box from his pocket.
Gil ?Here this is for you, open it.? Excited he watched her slim fingers grasp the box as she wrestled with opening it.
Surprised she gasp ? Gil how did you know?? jumping up from the table Sara ran over to Gil and put her arms around his neck and kissed him every so softly on his lips. ?Thank you, this means so much to me.? A tear started to form, she tired to quickly wipe it away. He saw her gesture, Gil wanted to say something instead he gazed at his new bride.
Sara looked down holding what Gil had given to her , how could he have found my grandmothers locket. Gently she opened it inside was a picture of her grandmother and her grandfather on one side and on the other was a picture of her and Gil on their first date.
How she remembered they had a very quite dinner for two in a small restaurant. That was the start of their long relationship.
As she sat looking at her grandparents, how happy they were, how happy they made Sara feel, if for a little joy in her young life.
