Don't Say Goodbye - Chapter 1 Calleigh Duquesne was always a happy cheerful person. Some would say that she was way to cheerful so to speak. But thats just how she was. She had always been like that since she was a kid. One thing that could make her mood drop down lower then zero was her father. Don't get her wrong she loved her father deeply but it was his drinking problem and his dependincy on her that crushed her. She hated seeing her father hurting and not being able to do anything about it. Calleigh's day was going great until she got that one little call from Dana at The Whisky Stop. Calleigh sighed and got Horatio's permission before excusing herself from the lab. Tim was walking by the lobby when Calleigh was heading out and quickly stopped her. They had been going out for a couple of months know, ever since Tim had been in the officer involved shooting a couple of months back. "Cal!" Tim called. "Hey, Cal." Calleigh sighed a little, her nerves always went to over drive at times like these and having Tim pressuring her wasn't helping her any. As soon as Calleigh turned around Tim could tell that something was wrong. "What's wrong?" he asked, his brow wrinkling a little in confusion. Calleigh sighed and let her eyes slip closed for a minute, "Nothing." she lightly. Giving him a small fake smile that Tim knew all to well that her father was involved somehow. Tim sighed a little and looked down at the floor before looking up at her, "What happend with your dad?" he asked gently. He didn't want to seem like an over proctective boyfriend and by all means he didn't want to seem intrusive he just wanted to know if she was ok. Calleigh sighed a little and straightned out her long blonde hair, "I have to go pick him up." she said lightly. "I'll be home late tonight" she added before walking into the elevator and letting the cool metal doors seperate her from Tim. Tim watched as the doors closed and sighed a little to himself, making a mental note to catch her later. Tim had woken up early that morning so that he could go into work with Calleigh. She had always liked to get there early, Tim on the other hand enjoyed his extra hour in a half of sleep. Tim walked by reception and saw the tulips sitting on the desk he sighed a little knowing instantaly who they were from and who they were to. Tim couldn't even count on his two hands how many times Calleigh's father had sent her Tulips. He peered his head around the corner and saw Calleigh talking to her dad. He hung back for a few minutes and then began to walk down the hall when he sensed her uneasyness. Tim could always read Calleigh like a book even though she swore no one could, "Hey, Cal." Tim said lightly, stealing a glance at her father who nodded in return. Calleigh looked over and gave him a small smile, "Hey, Tim." she replied. Knowing perfectly well what he was doing but said nothing. Tim nodded slightly and walked the rest of the way down the hall and out of sight. Calleigh cleared her throat a little and looked back at her dad who gave her a warm smile. "He's a nice boy, Calleigh." he said lightly. Calleigh gave him a warm smile, "He's the best daddy." she said with a slight uneasy feeling in her stomach. It was all starting to become to much for her. Kenwall nodded, "I'll see you later lambchop" he said, he gave her a small nod and headed back down the hall and out of sight. Calleigh sighed a little to herself and ran a hand through her hair. Through out the course of the day Calleigh had kept her distance from Tim. Afraid of what might come out of her mouth if she didn't. She understood why Tim was so protective of her but sometimes she felt like she couldn't breathe. He had always been like that, long before they had began going out. Calleigh sighed a little as she entered there bedroom. She heared the front door open a few minutes later and then Tim walked into the room, finding Calleigh sitting on the edge of the bed. Tim looked at her for a second and walked over to the dresser to take off his badge and gun. "Tough day?" he asked lightly. Calleigh nodded a little, "Yeah." she said absent mindedly. Tim walked over to her and sat down slowly next to her. He reached his hand across and linked it with hers, "Everything ok with you and your dad?" he asked gently. Calleigh let her eyes slip closed and sighed. "Can we not talk about him right now?" she asked, not meaning to sound so rude. Tim nodded, "Alright." he said lightly as he kicked off his work shoes. Calleigh took a deep breath and tried to hold back the tears that were so desperatley trying to be hidden behind her vibrant green eyes. "Tim." Calleigh said weakly, she wasn't even sure that Tim heared it. Tim snapped his head in her direction and gave her hand a light squeeze, urging her to continue. "Whats wrong baby?" he asked gently. Suddenly Tim felt a wave of panic wash over him. He hated it when he got gut feelings, they were almost always right and they never ended very well in his favor. Calleigh took a deep breath and let go of her hand. She turned her body a little to face him and sighed once again, "Look, Tim, you know I love you" she said slowly. Tim instantally palled, he knew where this conversation was going. "But I just think..." Tim shook his head and put a finger to her lips, "Calleigh, don't finish that sentence." he pleaded. Calleigh sighed a little and looked up into his eyes pleadinly, trying so hard to find a way that this wouldn't end badly but she couldn't, "I think we shouldn't see eachother anymore" she stated. She quickly looked back down at the bed spread and closed her eyes as the tears began to fall. She had to do this. She had no other option. If her father was going to bring her down she wasn't going to bring down the man she loved in the process. Tim shook his head lightly, "Calleigh....." he said, trailing off. "Why?" he whispered. Calleigh sighed and looked up at him, "Its to much Tim." she said. "I just...I can't handle it all. Work, and my father and you and everything else I just...I can't, Tim. I'm tired." Tim gave her a look and made a small laughing sound, "All of this is just about your father isn't it?" he asked. "This doesn't have to do with work or really me for that matter its just about your damn father?" he asked. He could feel himself starting to get angry and that was never good. Calleigh's eyes suddenly turned from pain to anger, "It has everything to do with you!" she screeched. Her voice cracking slightly. "God damn Tim!" she protested. "You are constantly hounding me about how i'm feeling, about opening up to my feelings about my father and my childhood and i'm sick of it. Why can't you just let me handle this one on my own?" she asked. "Because you can't." Tim replied honestly. He then regretted every single word he had just said. Calleigh's green eyes flashed angrily at Tim, "I can't what?" she asked. "Tim need I remind you I am a strong southern woman who knows her way around every single gun ever made" she said angrily. Tim sighed, "Calleigh I didn't mean that." he said. Calleigh nodded. "Oh I think you did." she said lightly. "Get out" Tim looked at her for a minute and had to wait for her to say it for a second time before he had heared her clearly, "You can't kick me out." he said lightly. "This is my house" It was Calleigh's turn to look at him now, "Fine." she said lightly, "I'll leave." she got up off the bed and looked over at him, "I'll have everything out by tomorrow evening." she said as she grabbed her shoes and purse and left the room. Tim sat there in disbelif. He couldn't believe what had just happend, actually happend. They were fine a few hours ago. What went wrong? Why did he always have to screw things up? He always did this and not with just Calleigh. It wasn't that he got controlling he just wanted the best for the women he had loved and wanted to protect them. And most importantly Calleigh. He could see himself with Calleigh, he loved her deeply and that scared him. And because of the love he felt the need to protect her had grown. Tim sighed a little and ran a hand through his hair roughly. He really screwed up this time. TBC....Ughers the first chapter didn't turn out the way I thought it would but what do you guys think?
