    “That is good to know Nick, what about you Greg?”

    “Better, I am still a little weak.”

    “Has your doctor clear you to come back to work?”


    “Warrick how are you feeling?”

    “Ok Grissom, but I’m still tired and weak.”

    “Did you doctor clear you to be back at work?”
    “Yes, he tells me to take a break when I need them.”

    “That is fine Warrick and Greg I want you to take breaks to if your feel you need them too.”

    “Ok Grissom.”

    Gil looks at Nick, Warrick and Greg and see that Nick does look like well and well resting too, but can tell that Warrick and Greg still look tired and not a hundred percent yet. Gil then looks at Catherine and see she still looks tired.

    “How are you feeling Catherine?”

    “A lot better, but I am still wear out easy though.”

    “As I tell Warrick and Greg if you need a break take it, the same goes for you Nick.”
    “Thank Grissom, but I should not need any break, beside short one to use the men room and get a drink of pop or water. And should we wake Sofia and sent her home Gil because she looks unwell?”

    “No, let her sleep and she is here because her apartment building caught fire this evening, so she has no place to stay right now.”

    Everyone look over at Sofia, but Greg who has been dating Sofia is thinking where did she not get a hotel room or call him to pick her up, he would have let her stay at his place. Greg looks at Gil Grissom with a worried look on his face and start to talk.

    “Sofia could get a hotel room Grissom!”

    “With all the conferences going on right now, there is limited hotel left. In addition everyone else that live in that building needs a place to stay right now too and Sofia was going to get a hotel room but they were only one room left at the Palm and her next door neighbor that are an elder couple has no family in town to stay with, so she let them have the room.”

    Nick who starts looking at the sheet of paper, which is in front Gil Grissom, clear his throat and Gil Grissom who sitting at the end of the table with his back to the door of the break room, turns his head and look over at Nick that is sitting on his left side.

    “Can we have our assignments now?”

    “That would be 402 Fire at Sofia’s apartment building, the whole team is working the case, so go get your crime scene kit and meet out at the SUV in five minute.”
    “Do we know where the fire start Grissom?”

    “Yes Greg, the fire start in the seat area by the front door.”

    The CSI all gets they crime scene kits and then meet outside at the first crime lab SUV and puts they crime scene kits into the first two SUV. Sara gets behind the wheel of the first SUV, Gil open the passengers’ door and gets into the first SUV and Catherine gets into the back of the SUV. Nick, Greg and Warrick who put they crime kits in the second SUV walks around to the doors of the SUV and Nick gets behind the wheel. Greg gets into the back and Warrick open the passengers’ door of the SUV and then get into the SUV. Once at Sofia apartment building Gil, Sara, Catherine, Nick, Warrick and Greg walk up to the doors and then the six of them walk into the building. Jim Brass walks over to the CSI and has a concern look on his face.

    “Gil how is Sofia doing?”

    “She was sleep on the break room couch when we left the crime lab, but it does not look like she is doing well, she was sweat really badly and shivering at the sometime.”

    “It is good to see y’all feeling better and back at work.”

    Sara who has been looking around the entrance area of the apartment building, looks at Jim Brass and then start to talk.

    “Did anyone die?”

    “Two people, a female and man and they were an elder couple that could not get down the stairs fast enough and inhaled too much smoke.”

    “How more people were injury?”

    “Nick only one, her knee went out going down the stairs, Sofia was walking down the stairs at the sometime and helps her up from the stair she was sitting on. Then Sofia helps the young lady get out of the building and across the street to safety.

    “That was nice of Sofia, seeing that she is sick.”

    “Yes it was Greg, It was her neighbor that lives in the apartment on the left-hand side of her and she is a college student on Las Vegas University gymnastics team.”

    “Did Sofia wake up when she smells the smoke Jim?”

    “No Catherine, Sofia elder neighbor Mr. and Mrs. Clue who live in the apartment on the right-hand side of Sofia know where she keeps her spare key. Mrs. Clue saw her came home for work early sick the day before, so she gets Sofia spare key out from the hide spot and opens up Sofia door and went into the apartment and wakes Sofia up and let her know they had to get out of the building because of a fire.”

    “Would that be the elder couple she let have the last room at the Palms?”

    “Yes it would, Warrick.”

    “Sara, Greg, Warrick, Catherine and Nick let get to work to prove if this fire was arson or if it was because of old wire or something else along these lines.”

    “(Sara, Nick, Warrick, Catherine and Nick) sure Grissom.”

    The CSI gets to work on going through the burn items and processing the scene. Catherine start going through items in the burn trash can that is in the seat area where the fires start and several minutes later Catherine’s cellphone start ringing and she knows by the ring tone it is Lindsey calling. Catherine pulls the cellphone off her hip, then flip the cellphone open.

    “Hi, Lindsey”
    “I’m calling to let you know if my fevers stay down or if it went back up!”

    Did your fever go up or stay down?”

    “The thermometer coughing says my fever is now ninety-nine point nine degrees Fahrenheit and my throat has starts to hurt more, so I take some Tylenol.”

    “You do the right thing Linds. Now go get some sleep.”

    “Ok mom, I love you.”
    “I love you too.’

    Catherine’s flip her cellphone shut and then puts the cellphone back on her hip. Sara who is working beside Catherine look over at her co-worker with a worried look on her face because she know Lindsey has been sick.

    “Dis Lindsey fevers stay down Cath?”

    “It went back up a little, her fever is now ninety-nine point nine degrees Fahrenheit and her throat so start hurt again, so she took some Tylenol and is going to go to bed for the night.”

    “Poor Lindsey getting Tonsillitis while pregnant, it is no funny being sick when you are pregnant.”

    “I am just happy she did not catch the flu and stomach flu from me.”

    “Let hope she gets over tonsilitis and stay health the rest of the pregnancy.”

    “That would be great if Lindsay could start health the rest of the pregnancy, Sara.

    Sara and Catherine get back to work, because the two of them notice that Gil Grissom is looking at that. It takes Greg, Warrick, Nick, Sara, Catherine, Gil three hours to processes the apartment building. Nick, Warrick and Greg put evidences into the back of the SUV they come into, as Sara, Catherine and Gil put evidence into the SUV they come in and five minutes later the six of them are heading back to the crime lab. Once back at the lab Nick, Sara, Warrick, Greg and Gil check the evidence in and Catherine goes to the break room to see how Sofia is doing. Catherine walks into the break room to see Sofia sit up on the couch and throwing up into the break room trash can that she had pull over to the couch, Catherine then sees Hodges heat up his dinner in the microwave. Catherine walks over to the microwave and take Hodges food out of the microwave and hand it to him.

    “Catherine’s my meal is not done heat up yet!”

    “Do you have any feeling at all Hodges, can’t you see that Sofia has the flu and stomach flu that is going around and the smell is make Sofia sick to her stomach?”

    “Of cause I can, but I am hunger.”

    “Then leave the lab and driver too in an out burger, now take this gladwear bowl and throw what is in out in the trace lab.”

    Hodges takes the bowl and stump out of the break room. Catherine goes over to the sink and pick up two clan towel and wet both of them down with cool water. Catherine then walks over to the couch and kneels down next to Sofia, who has lays back down. Catherine wipes Sofia face off with one of the wet towel and then folds the other towel in half and set it on Sofia’s Forehead. Sofia open up her eyes, then look at Catherine and give her a small smile.

    “Thank you Catherine for tell Hodges off and wipe my face off coughing and for on put a cool towel on my forehead.”

    “You are welcome. My motherly sides take over. Do you want me to put a new bag in the trash can?”


    Catherine stands up and goes and gets a new trash bag and from under the sink. Catherine then walks over to the trash can and take the old bag out and ties it close. Then Catherine put a new bag into the trash can and takes the bag of trash out to the dumpster. At the same time Sofia close her eyes and goes back to sleep. Ten minute later Catherine walks into Gil Grissom Office and over to the chairs in front of his desk. Catherine sits down on the chair on the right, if your back is to the officer door and gives Gil Grissom and worried look.

    “Gil I worry about Sofia, she burning up and can’t keep anything down. Do you know how long has Sofia been like this?”

    “Let see she went home early from Saturday Shift, because she said she was having really bad cramps and was tired. She comes in to work Sunday night and look really flush and would not eat anything at Jack Dinner when Sara, I and her want to get breakfast after working a crime scene all night, all she got was a glass of water, but she just sips at it and then went home after we get back to the crime lab because she had a sore throat, runny nose, headache, upset stomach, could not keep food down, was achy all over and exhausted. Sofia was on call yesterday and I had to call her in because it was a very busy night. But she spent most of the time in the bathroom, because she had to keep going to the bathroom and she kept throwing up in the trash can as she was using the bathroom. So Sara drive her home.”

    “I think one of us should take her to the ER to get check out and have her put on an IV to get fluids into her and medicine to reduce that fever she has. It has to be at lest a hundred and four point nine degrees Fahrenheit.”

    At the same time Hodges comes into Gil office pull Sofia with him. Sofia drops down into the chair next to Catherine. Both Gil, Catherine and Sofia laugh when they look at Hodges who is pointed at his T-shirt.

    “Gil look what Sofia did to my shirt, when I was in the break room heat my dinner up!”

    “It looks like she threw up on you!”

    “She did Gil!”

    “I tell you not to heat your dinner up in the break room and to go out and get something to eat. “

    “I want to eat what I bring from home Catherine!”

    “Hodges you know Sofia has the flu and stomach flu and is rest in the break room until she feeling up to drive to her Mom and Dad or to the shift ends and one of us can take her back to are place to stay at or driver Sofia out to her Mom and Dad place.”
    “Coughing I ask you to leave, I would have not got sick on you Hodges if you do not step in front of the trash can and starts tell me that I had no right to ask you to take your food out of the break room. Like you could not tell that I need to throw up, I had my hand over my mouth when you walk in front of the trash can Hodges.”

    Gil Grissom and Catherine are trying not to laugh at Hodges who is still pointed at his shirt and giving Sofia an evil look. Sofia on the other hand has her eyes shut and her right hand on her forehead. Catherine looks over at Sofia, as Gil takes a deep breath and then he starts to talk.

    “Hodges go home to take a shower and change your clothing and eat something there. Then come back and do your job.”


    Hodges stumps out of Gil office and then walks out of the crime lab and to his car in the parking lot. A minute later Hodges pull his car out of the parking lot and start driver home. Meanwhile back in Gil office Sofia grab the trash can and pull it over to her and start throwing up into the trash can. When Sofia stop throwing up, she leans back in the chair and closes her eyes. Catherine looks at Sofia and her mother instincts again.

    “Have you taken your temperature in the last couple of hours Sofia?”

    “Yes Catherine, Dr. Lee had just finish take my temperature and was put a new cool towel on my forehead when Hodges comes into the break room. Dr. Lee left the break room right as Hodges put his food in the microwave.”

    “How high was your fever Sofia?”

    “A hundred and four point nine degrees Fahrenheit coughing, Ah-choo.”

    “Bless you Sofia and Catherine’s I want you to take Sofia to the ER and have her look at.”

    “I really think that a good idea Grissom Ah-choo.”

    Gil pull a tissue out of the box of tissues on his desk and hand the tissue to Sofia. Sofia blow her nose and then throw the used tissue into the trash can. Catherine stand up and walk up to Sofia and then helps Sofia up from the chair and then the two of them walk out of Gil’s office and to the parking lot. Once outside Sofia stop walking and start coughing into her right hand.

    Warrick, Nick, Greg, Sara and Gil stand up and head to the locker room and get their things and then walk to the main lab and then head outside and to the parking lot. Catherine pulls her SUV into the parking lot and pull into the spot by Sara’s kia sportage. Gil help Sofia out of Catherine passenger seat and help Sofia gets into the passenger seat of SUV. Gil then gets into the back seat and Sara gets behind the wheel. The three of them put they seat belts on and a minute later Sara put the SUV into driver pull out of the parking space. A minute and half later Sara is driving home and Catherine is following behind in her SUV seeing she lives on the same street as Gil and Sara. Sara pulls the SUV into the attached garage of her and Gil house and once the SUV is parked and turned off Gil gets out of the SUV. He close the back door and then open up the massager door and then help Sofia out of the SUV and toward the door in the garage, which lead into the house. He then helps Sofia inside the house and upstairs to the guests’ bedroom and Sara is right behind them carry Sofia stuff.

    “I take it the two empty bedrooms close to the master bedroom are going to be the babies’ room Sara?”

    By now the three of them have walked into the guests’ bathroom and Gil Grissom is pointed at a door.

    “The bedroom has a connected bathroom.”

    “Coughing I see. I see you turn the bedroom across from this room into an office.”

    “Gil and Sara) yes.

    Sofia: I going to take a fast shower and then I am going lay down now and get some sleep because I am tired.”

    “(Sara and Gil) that is fine, if you need anything just let us know.”

    “Can I borrow a nightshirt and pajama pant Sara, because what I am wearing are dirty from the fire?”

    “Sure I will go get a nightshirt and pajama pants for you right now and bring them into you, there is towels in the bathroom all ready.”

    “Thanks for let me know, just put the nightshirt and pant onto the bed. I going to head into the bathroom and get into coughing the shower.”

    “All right.”

    Sara and Gil walk out of the guests’ bedroom and head to the master bedroom, as the same time Sofia walks into the bathroom connected to the guest room.
    Meanwhile next door at Catherine’s house, to a note on the coffee table, Catherine is sitting on the couch reading the note from Lindsey that say I went to school and so did Kevin. I did not have a fever when she wakes up that morning and feel better. I will see you when we get home from school at three o’clock, love Lindsey. Catherine stands up from the couch and head upstairs to her bedroom. Then walks into the master bathroom to takes a shower, because she smells like smoke for the crime scene at Sofia apartment building that turn out not to be a crime scene at all. A half hour later Catherine walks out of the bathroom wearing a pair of gray sweatpant and oversized black nightshirt. Catherine lays down on her bed to get some sleep, because it had been a long night and she is exhaust. Catherine is so exhaust that she forgot to set her alarm clock and fall to see shortly after laying her head onto the pillows.
    Catherine wakes up when she hears Lindsey and Kevin walk through the door of the house when they get home from school. Catherine gets out of bed and then walks out of her bedroom and over to the staircase. She walks downstairs and into the living room, to see the two teenage stands behind the couch and Lindsey stare at Kevin. Then Catherine notices a white gold ring that has a pink sapphire cut in a shape of a heart with a low pong sitting in the center of the ring and inset into the band of the ring in a pattern of diamonds then pink sapphire, which goes around the whole band and the ring is on Lindsey’s left ring finger. Catherine walks up next to Lindsey and notice that Lindsey is wearing a dark jean skirt and pink blouse and Kevin is wearing a pair of black pant and blue polo shirt.

    “Linds is there something you need to tell me about?”

    “Kevin asks me to marry him and I say yes mom.”
    “He what?”

    “He asks me to marry him.”

    “That what I thought you said.”

    “I just need you to sign this form say that you will allow me to get marry.”
    “What about Kevin did his parents sign the form?”


    Lindsey hold out the form and Catherine takes the form from Lindsey and read it through and then sing it and hand the form back to Lindsey, who still has a huge smile on her face.

    “I will let you marry Kevin, but Lindsey’s I want the two of you to live here with me.”

    “I am fine with that mom.”

    “I am fine with that too, But can my sister move in here to she needs some place to stay or the hospital won’t release her and she is ready to come home?”

    “Yes, we can turn my office that is downstairs into her bedroom and it has a full bathroom attached to the room.”

    “Thank you
    “It is no big deal and beside she is the aunt of my grandchildren.”
    “Do we have enough space?”

    “Yes Linds we have two guest rooms upstairs and once you and Kevin get marrying you will be sleep in the same room. So they will still be room enough for three babies, but two of the babies will have to share a room.”

    “Mom we want to get marry as soon as possible before I start to get to big.”

    “I understand that, is this weekend too soon?”

    (Kevin and Lindsey) No, that would be great.”

    “Let me get dress and then let go out to dinner.”

    (Kevin and Lindsey) Ok

    Catherine head upstairs and changes into a pair of dark gray dress pants and a pale pink blouse and then goes into the master bathroom and brush her tooth, then comb her hair. Ten minutes later Lindsey, Catherine and Kevin are at Gino pizza and are eating vegetables’ pizza. After finish dinner, Catherine head home to drop Kevin off at the house and then Lindsey and Catherine goes shopping to find Lindsey a dress to wear that weekend. Catherine and Lindsey go too bridal by Sara and Lindsey finds a white empire waist sun dress that has tiny pink rose on it after twenty minutes of looking, Lindsey goes to the fitting room and try the dress and I know she does not want to look at anymore dress because she is in love with the dress, so Catherine buys the dress for Lindsey to wear on her Saturday wedding. Ten minutes later Catherine and Lindsey walks out of bridal by Sara and head to Catherine SUV in the parking lot and twenty minute later Lindsey and Catherine walk into they house and Lindsey is carrying the dress bag that her dress is in. Catherine looks at her daughter and can tell that Lindsey is happy, but can tell Lindsey start to feel tired and her throat is sore too, because she start to sound hoarse in the bridal store and has been coughing too.

    “Lindsey’s I want you to work on some homework tonight, but I want you to go to bed early and get a good night sleep.”

    Ahem ok, I think that I am going to take a nap for an hour or so. Then get up and do my homework coughing.”

    Catherine watch her daughter cough and notice that her face is a little red, Catherine place her right hand onto Lindsey’s forehead, which feel a little warm to the touch. Catherine take her hand off Lindsey’s forehead and give her daughter a worried look.
    “Yu are running a little warm. But that could just be because you been going all day without take a rest.”

    “Coughing, I know, do you think I should take some Tylenol?”

    “No not right now Linds you not run that hot, but take you temperature when you get up from you nap.”

    “Ok, yawning.”

    Lindsey walks over to the staircase and head upstairs. Lindsey then walks into her bedroom and put in her dress into the closet that is on the wall across from her bed. Lindsey then walks over to her bed and lay down on the bed and Lindsey pulls her bedspread up and goes right to sleep. Catherine watching tv until it is time for her to get ready for work and then Catherine goes upstairs and goes into her bed to fresh up a little seeing that she is all ready dress. A few minute later Catherine walk into Lindsey’s Bedroom and over to Lindsey’s bed. Catherine sits down on the edge of Lindsey’s bed and feel Lindsey’s forehead and is relieving to see that Lindsey is no long run warm, but at the same time Lindsey coughs in her sleep. Catherine take her hand off Lindsey’s forehead and Lindsey rolls onto her right side. Catherine let Lindsey sleep, because Lindsey look pale and would weather have Lindsey rest seeing that she is still sick. Catherine gets up from the bed and walks out of her daughters’ bedroom. Catherine goes downstairs and says good night to Kevin then leave for work. Fifteen minutes later Catherine walks into the crime lab and head to her office. She then sits down on her desk chair. Catherine knows she needs to meet Gil, Sara, Warrick, Nick and Greg in the break room for assignments, but she does not care. She is still trying to take in the news that Kevin and Lindsey gave her when they get home from school. Catherine is happy that Kevin and Lindsey are in love and they want to raise the babies together and are getting marrying. But she still feels that Lindsey is taking everything too fast, she only fifteen-year-old and will only turn sixteen a month and three weeks before the babies due date. Catherine looks up to see Sara standing at her office door. Catherine notices that Sara is wearing black dress pants and a red empire waist blouse.

    “You miss case assignment you are with me on a 417-Family Disturbance and 419 Dead Body.”

    “Sorry Sara, my mind somewhere else tonight.”

    “Lindsey not doing any better?”

    “She is doing better, but she and Kevin are getting marry on Saturday.”

    “She is only fifteen and not going to be sixteen until June 4.”
    “I know that and so do the two of them, but they want to be a family.”

    “Did you sign the form for her to get marry and do Kevin Mom and Dad Sign his form?”

    “Yes, How Sofia doing today?”

    “Ok, Helen has got here to eat some soup broth and she was able to keep it down. But her nose has started runny again and she still has a nasty cough and running a high fever though.”

    “That not good, we should get going.”

    Catherine stands up from the desk chair and then Catherine and Sara leave Catherine’s office and heads to the locker room to get they crime scene kits. Then the two of them head outside and to the parking lot and get into the third crime lab SUV and a few minutes later Sara is driving to the crime scene. When Sara and Catherine get to the crime scene, both of them get the crime scene kit out of the back of the SUV and then the two of then head inside the house that the crime happened in and the two of them see a woman sitting on the couch cover in blood and hold a hug knife and the knife is cover in blood. Jim Brass walks up to Catherine and Sara with a sad look on his face.

    “Her husband dead body is laying on the floor of the five-year-old daughters’ bedroom. Sara I want you to take the bedroom, the daughter is still sitting on her bed and I can’t get her to leave the room. I think maybe if you process the scene and talk to the little girl as you work, you could get her to talk or maybe come out of the room.”


    “Catherine’s I want you to process the Mother.”

    “Sure Jim.”

    Catherine walks over to the mother and Jim show Sara to the little girl room that is upstairs. When Sara walks into the little girl room and see the girl has brown eyes and dark brown hair that is shoulder length, Sara take a deep breathe and then set her crime scene kit on the floor. Sara open up her crime scene kit and get out a pair of latex gloves and is thinking I have seen crime scene like this before. Sara get her camera out of the kit and then start taking pictures of the father body. At the same time downstairs Catherine is taking pictures of the mother.

    Two hours later at P.D. Sara and Catherine are talk to the mother who stab her husband to death in front of they five-year-old daughter and Mrs. Penbreak is staring into space and Sara is stare at Mrs. Penbreak.

    “Why did you stab you husband in front of your daughter?

    “No Miss. Sidle.”

    “(Yelling) let see some children are rape, some end up with breaking bones from physical abuse, they are not love and sometime the fostered parents have too many children and cannot give the children all the time they need. You screw up your daughter live and she will go back to school and will be call the girl that watched her mother stab her father to death right in front of her and you add the bad thing that could happen to her in foster care in addition to the abuse from her father and will never be able to put everything she was through, out of her mind and it will be with her for the rest of her live.”

    Mrs. Penbreak does not say anything, she just stare at Sara Sidle, who has cross her arm over her chest and is stare at Mrs. Penbreak with a very anger look on her face. Catherine looks over at Sara and then looks at Mrs. Penbreak, who now has a look of shock on her face. Catherine then look over at Jim Brass who is standing beside Mrs. Penbreak.

    Catherine stand up from the chair and then grab Sara left arm and pull her up from the chair. Then Catherine pull Sara out of the out of the room and through P.D. to the main door. Then Catherine pull Sara outside and over to the SUV in the parking lot.

Catherine and Greg get back to the lab twenty minutes later and once Sara has all the evidences out of the SUV and is walking into the crime, Catherine backs out of the parking space and then drivers over to P.D.

They were always kiss and hug each other and then the two of them get marrying after only dating for three months, because she find out she was pregnant with Sephora. Six months after the wedding they daughter was baby and a year later Stephan was born.”
    “How old are the children?”

    Sephora smiles at Catherine Willows and takes few deep breathe, then she start to talk to the female CSI.

    “I turn ten year old today and my brother turns nine tomorrow.”

    “Did your mom and dad fight a lot Sephora?”

    “Everyday Mr. Sander, dad was always getting mad over the little things and beat her up.”

    Greg look away from Sephora and at Stephan and he can tell that Stephan has something on his mind and that it could be important to the case.

    “Stephan do you have anything to add?”

    “Yes, Dad moved out of the house about three months ago, after moms find out she was pregnant again. She got a court order because she said it was not save for him to be around her, because he could hurt her or the unborn baby.”

    “Mrs. Heart did your Son in-law own a 9mm handgun?”

    Jim Brass looks at Catherine Willow and Greg Sander and runs his hands through his hair, as he starts to talk to the CSI.

    “That right he is and he did not show up at work today either.”

    “That all the questions Catherine Willows and I have for right now.”

Catherine stays up until Kevin, Katie and Lindsey have left for school and then Catherine goes upstairs to her bedroom and into the master bathroom to take a shower, twenty minutes later Catherine walks out of the master bathroom wearing a pair of light-blue pajama pants and light blue nightshirt and walks over to her bed and lay down on the bed. Meanwhile, at Jefferson High school Lindsey, Kevin and Katie have just come through the main doors of the school. Katie wheels her wheelchair away from her brother and Lindsey and heads right to her first class of the day and Lindsey and Kevin goes to the locker the two of them share. Lindsey friend Beth runs up to Kevin and Lindsey and Lindsey notices that Beth is wearing light-blue jean skirt and a black wide straps tank top.

    “Kevin, how much long do you need to use the crutch for?”

    “Three weeks, count this week, Beth.”

    “Lindsey, when are you get that doctor note allowing you to set out of gym for the rest of the year?”

    “After school today.”

    “I wish I could get out of gym, I really hate gym class.”

    The bell rings and Kevin heads to the boys gym and Beth and Lindsey head to the girls locker room to get changes for gym class. After Lindsey and Beth have changes into they gym shirt and short Lindsey looks down at her shirt and short and see the gym clothing is getting tight, Beth looks at Lindsey and sees that Lindsey has almost out grew the shirt and short.

    “It a good thing, you will be sitting out after today, because if you had to continue take part in gym class after today, you would have to stay wearing the plus sized gym clothing seeing that you are wear the lager size in nonplus size clothing.”

    “I know, I am getting huge.”

    The two girls head into gym class and when the bell for class to start rings the girl gym class warm up and then start to play volleyball. The school day goes by slow for Lindsey and Kevin, but goes by fast for Katie.
    When school gets out Catherine is waiting in her SUV that is parked in front of the high school. Three minutes after the bell for school to end rings, Katie, Lindsey and Kevin come out of the high school and then comes to Catherine’s SUV. Catherine gets out of the SUV and walks over to the sidewalk and then helps Katie into the front seat of the SUV, as Lindsey and Kevin get the back of the SUV. As Katie is putting the seatbelt on, Catherine is putting Katie’s wheelchair into the back of the SUV behind the back seat. A few minutes later Catherine starts the SUV up and then take drives Kevin and Katie to physical therapy, then Catherine and Lindsey head to Lindsey obgyn appointment. Once at Dr. Moonstar office, Lindsey signs in and then Lindsey and Catherine sit down on chairs in the waiting room. Lindsey is call back for her appointment after only waiting one minute, by a nurse with short black hair, brown eyes, olive skin tone skin tone and wearing pink scrubs with baby foot prints on them. Lindsey stands up and then grabs her mom hand and pulls her back into the hallway that the examine rooms are in. Lindsey stops at the scale and the nurse takes her weight and then Lindsey and Catherine follows the nurse into examine room number three. Once in the exam room Lindsey gets up on the examine table and Catherine sits down on the chair that is next to the exam table. Then the nurse check Lindsey blood pressure.

    “Lindsey I need you to go into the bathroom and give a urine sample, which will be used to check sugar and protein levels.”


    Lindsey takes the urine sample cup from the nurse and then walks out of the exam room. Two minutes later Lindsey walks into the exam room and hand the urine sample cup to the nurse, then sits down on the exam table. The nurse set the sample cup onto a tray and then puts on a pair of medical gloves and then draws some blood to run tests for chromosome abnormalities and other test the doctor wants to run. A few minutes later the nurse carries the tray with the sample cup and blood and Lindsey’s chart walks out of the exam room and shut the door. The nurse put the chart into the holder on the exam room door and then walks to the lab. Meanwhile Lindsey looks at her mom who is wearing a lavender long sleeves shirt with scoop neckline and a pair of black dress pants and has her hair pulled back in a ponytail.

    “I love what you are wearing this afternoon mom.”

    “Thank you Lindsey.”

    “You are welcome.”

    At the same time Dr. Moonstar walks up to the exam room door and take Lindsey chart out of the holder on the door. Then Dr. Moonstar open up the exam room door and walks into the exam room, as she looks at the chart. The doctor close the door behind her and Catherine and Lindsey notices the doctor is wear black dress pants and a white blouse under her white lab coat. Dr. Moonstar does her check up, which includes listening to the babies heart beats, check the growth of Lindsey stomach and then does an ultrasound to check the thickness of the back of your babies’ necks. Right as Dr. Moonstar finishes the ultrasound and Lindsey is pulling her shirt down, the nurse from earlier brings the result from the blood work and urine sample into the doctor. Dr. Moonstar sits down on her chair, which is in front of Lindsey and looks over the result of the tests, as the nurse walks out of the exam room shutting the door behind her. Lindsey sits up on the exam table and looks at Dr. Moonstar.

    “So is everything fine Dr. Moonstar?

    “The babies’ heart beats are great, and the urine sample says your sugar and protein levels are normal and you do not have a kidney or urinary tract infection. The blood work for chromosome abnormalities and the ultrasound I did show no chromosome abnormalities. The only thing I want you to do Lindsey is to gain fifteen more pounds before your sixteenth week check up.”
    “But I am huge already!”

    “You need to gain the weight to keep the babies health.”

    The doctor, Catherine and Lindsey stand up and then walk out of the exam room. The doctor walks up to the door of exam room four, as Catherine and Lindsey head to waiting room. Catherine and Lindsey schedules Lindsey next appointment with the nurse at the check in desk and then Catherine and Lindsey heads out to the SUV. A few minutes later the two of them are on they way over to pick up Kevin and Katie and Lindsey looks at her mom.

    “Can we go out to dinner after we pick up Kevin and Katie, I am starving?”

    “Sure, honey.”

    Lindsey looks out the passengers’ seat window, as her mom drives toward norther Las Vegas physical therapy building. Ten minutes later Katie and Kevin are sitting in Catherine SUV and the four of them head to Jack’s diner to get dinner. Once at Jack diner Katie wheels her wheelchair up to the end of the fourth booth and Lindsey and Kevin sits down on the bench on the right side if standing at the end of the table and Catherine seat down on the bench across from Lindsey and Kevin. The four of them look at the menu and ten minutes later Catherine is eating grilled chicken salad, Lindsey and Kevin are eating cheese burger and French fries and Katie is eating a grilled chicken sandwich.
    An hour later Kevin and Lindsey are sitting in the living room working on homework, when Kevin looks over at Lindsey.

    “How was your doctors’ appointment?”

    “I need not want to talk about it”

    “But they are my babies to and I have a right to know if everything going ok!”

    “I know Kevin, I am just upset, Dr. Moonstar wants me to gain fifteen more pounds before my sixteenth week check up.”

    “But are the babies all right?”

    “Yes, the babies’ heart beats are really strong and the blood work say there is no chromosome abnormalities and urine sample show that my sugar and protein levels are normal and I do not have a kidney or urinary tract infection.”

    “I tell you that, you need yo gain weight Lindsey!”

    “I know it just hard with the morning sickness and then get tonsilitis which cause my throat to be really swollen and very sore to the point where I could hardly swallow, because it hurt so bad. That I lost my appetite because of being sick and also the medicine causes loss of appetite too.”

    “I know Linds.”

    Kevin leans toward kiss Lindsey and kisses her on the lips and Lindsey kiss him back. Katie who is also in the living room is watching the newly married couple and smile at them. A few minutes later the three of them get back to work on they homework. A half hour later Lindsey taps Kevin on the arm.

    “Kevin and Katie I am going to heat up my left over half of cheese burger and French Fries from dinner do either of you want anything to drink or eat?”

    “Some more pop would be nice.”

    “Sure Katie, what about you Kevin?”

    “No I am fine.”

    Lindsey stands up from the couch and then heads to the kitchen. A few minutes later Lindsey walks into the living room with a plate in her left hand and a can of Pepsi in her right hand. Lindsey hand the can of pop to Katie and then sit down on the couch and start to eat the cheese burger. By the time Catherine gets up from her nap and walks into the living room, she finds that both Lindsey and Kevin are sitting on the couch and Kevin is reading the novel they English class is reading out loud to Lindsey. Catherine then walks toward the kitchen and when she walks past the bedroom that used to be her office and is not Katie’s bedroom, Catherine sees Katie is sitting on her bed reading her French textbook. Catherine walks down the hallway and into the kitchen and grabs a snack.
    When Catherine gets to the crime lab, she looks around for Greg to see if he has any updates on the Davis case they been working together on all weekend, but find that Greg and Warrick have already been sent to a crime scene. Gil Grissom walks up to Catherine and hand her an assignment sheet. Catherine looks to see what case she is going to be working and see she is working with Nick and Sara on a case that deals with fostered girls being rape and one of the girls has been murder. Catherine sighs out loud and is thinking I hate having to work two cases at once and the two cases she is working on makes her happy that Lindsey is safe at home.

    “Catherine you need to meet Sara and Nick at the crime scene.”

    “I will go get my crime scene kit and then leave the crime lab and head to the crime scene.”

    Catherine walks away from Gil Grissom and heads to the locker room to clock into work and get her crime scene kit out of her locker. Fifteen minutes later Catherine walks into the house the case is at and follows Jim Brass upstairs to the bedroom that the rapes and murder girl happed at. When the three of them reach the bedroom, Jim Brass step back and lets Catherine go into the bedroom. Catherine sees Nick who is wearing a black dress shirt and a pair of black suit pants is busy processing the room. Catherine set her crime scene kit on the floor and open up the kit to get out a pair of latex gloves, at the same Nick start to talk.

    “The pick plastic doll bed I found on the floor, has a breaking part and I think it was used as foreign body on one of the girls, when we get back to the lab I am going to have Wendy run the DNA on the vase, to see if it belongs to Misty, Liz, Stacey, Caitlin or Tracy.”

    “Cath is everything ok, you seem depression tonight?”

    “It just the two cases I am working on right now fostered children getting abused and a father killing his ex-wife then takes off leaving his daughter and son without a mother. Worst is the father is a cap for LVPD and has not been at work seen the day his wife was murder and know one has heard from him either. Greg found the fathers’ duty side lay on the steps of the children play house cover in blood and his fingerprints in his wife blood.”
    “Sounds like his skip town.”

    “I think you are right, but Brass put out a wire on his car and a picture of what he look like to the states around us, hopeful we will have something soon.”

    Catherine start to colleted the bed sheets off the girls beds, as Nick collect evidence from the bedroom floor. Nick looks up at Catherine as she puts one of the bed sheets into a evidence bag.

    “How Lindsey and her unborn babies doing?”

    “Lindsey is doing great and the babies have very strong heartbeats. Dr. Moonstar did tell her to gain fifteen pounds before her sixteenth week check up. She was a little mad about that she thinks she is already huge.”
    “I just show her when I walks past David bridal shop on Saturday and Lindsey looks great and I do not think she looks huge at all.”

    “That what I, Kevin and Katie tell her, but she still thinks she is fat.”

    “That teenage girls for you, they are always thinking about weight.”

    Catherine and Nick stop talking and work quietly. The two of them work until late into the night, it is three o’clock in the morning when the two of them put all the evidence bags into the back of the SUV Catherine drive to the crime scene, seeing that the one Nick and Sara came to the crime scene in, is at the hospital with Sara. Once all the evidence is in the SUV Nick and Catherine get into the SUV and Catherine drives to the crime lab. Once at the crime lab Catherine and Nick takes the evidence out of the SUV and then check the evidence into the lab. Nick take the DNA evidence to the DNA lab and Catherine take the fingerprints to the fingerprint lab and trace evidence to the trace lab. Ten minute late Nick and Catherine meet in the break room and start to read the girls cases files from the social worker.
    At five o’clock in the morning on Tuesday Catherine and Nick find themselves in interrogative room two and are sitting across for Mr. and Mrs. Cortaid who are Liz, Stacy, Tracy, Misty and Caitlin fostered parents. Jim Brass steps up to the end of the table and looks at the Judy’s and Jim Brass start to talk.

    “Mr. and Mrs. Cortaid do you know why you are sitting in this room and do you know what Mr. Stokes and Mrs. Willows do?”

    “Yes our fostered children put in a complaint against me and my wife and Mr. Stokes and Mrs. Willows work for the crime lab.”

    “It more then a complaint this time there is forensic evidence Mr. Cortaid that you murder Misty Tanks and then raped Tracy and Stacy Combs, Liz Strep and Caitlin Ranch. There is also evidence that you used a pink doll bed when you raped Caitlin. “

    “Caitlin was out cold and was not fight back like the other three was, so I was able to do whatever I wanting too.”

    Catherine looks away from Mr. and Mrs. Cortaid and start talking deep breath, Nick looks at Catherine, then looks at Mr. Cortaid and start to talk to him.”

    “And since Misty kick you when get off you her, you had to strangle Misty until she dead?”

    “Yes but I really love doing it.”

    (Nick and Catherine) You are sick, do you know that Mr. Cortaid?”

    “I am not sick.”

    “Why am I here Mr. Stokes?”

    “For aid and bedded, you helped your husband leave town after he raped all the girls and murder one of the girls.”

    “Jim arrested them.”

    “Sure Catherine.”

    Nick and Catherine stand up and walk out of the interrogative room, then walk out of P.D. to they SUV, sees that they drive to P.D. in their own SUV so they could head home after that was finish, because Gil said that he, Warrick and Greg would cover the rest of the night shift. Catherine gets into her SUV and the turn the SUV. Catherine turns the CD player on to listens to music on the ride home. A few minutes later Catherine pulls out of the parking lot of P.D. and start drive home. As Catherine pulls into her driveway she looks over at Sara and Gil house and see that all the light are off.
