Part 14

Even though the sky was overcast and grey, both women woke up feeling refreshed and ready to go. As Calleigh's cast was still quite damp, Natalia called up Dr. Tatum and asked what she recommended. It was suggested that they come in and she would replace the cast with a splint if the healing was progressing well enough and she'd also check out Calleigh's eyes while they were there.

"Babe, what would you like for breakfast? I'm in the mood for scrambled eggs and bacon."

Pulling down the green pullover, Calleigh responded.

"Talia, you know how I feel about bacon so count me in, but could you add some cheese grits to mine?"

"Not a problem. That sounds good to me too."

After they finished breakfast, Calleigh got the leash for Mallory and attached it to her collar and they walked out in the front yard to wait on Natalia.

Pulling the car out of the garage, Natalia smiled as the two golden haired creatures in her life made their way over to the car and got in.

"I'm now surrounded by blondes. Between you and Mallory, I'm outnumbered."

Leaning over to give her wife a kiss, Calleigh whispered.

"It's ok babe. You've got my heart and I'll protect you from Mallory. But all she might do is lick you to death."

"I could say something, but I better keep it clean." Natalia snorted.

"Oh, go for it."

Caressing her wife's face, Natalia retorted.

"Licking me to death is your job babe."

Throwing back her head, Calleigh let loose a full out laugh.

"Damn straight."

The drive to the hospital was uneventful and they were shown in to see Dr. Tatum in record time. She admonished Calleigh for getting the cast wet yet again, but did say the bone was healing nicely and went ahead and changed the cast with a splint.

She then took Calleigh to examine her eyes. She said that everything looked good and she didn't see any sign of infection. That meant that Calleigh's sight could return at any time. She did caution that when it did return that it might be a month or two before it would return completely. That everything would be quite blurry at the beginning, but that it would improve over time.

By the time they got to the lab, Calleigh was becoming nervous. As Natalia pulled into the parking lot, Calleigh almost asked her to turned around and take her home.

Shutting off the car, Natalia turned to her and took her hand in hers.

"Talk to me Cal. What's the matter?"

Taking a deep breath, Calleigh explained.

"I don't want anyone feeling sorry for me when I walk in with Mallory. This is not admitting that I'm going to stay this way, she's just helping me get around."

"There isn't one person in that building that is going to feel sorry for you. Everyone there; respects and looks up to you. They all believe as we do, that you're going to regain your sight and be back to work in no time. Are you ready to go in?"

Leaning over to give Natalia a kiss, Calleigh stated.

"You are so very good for me and in case I haven't told you today, I love you so very much."

"No, you haven't told me, but you show me in all the best ways possible."

Giving her another quick kiss, Calleigh retorted.

"Well, it's a dirty job, but I do it very well."

"Yes, you do."

Getting out of the car, they walked up the entranceway and were met by Horatio near the door.

"Good Morning Ladies."

"Morning Horatio, how are things today."

Looking down at the dog that stood on Calleigh's right side, Horatio glanced up at Natalia.

"I see that you've started collecting blondes. Wasn't the first one enough for you?"

"That is such a loaded question that I'm just going to let it slide. A girl could get herself in trouble answering that."

Calleigh patted her arm.

"Good answer darlin'."

"I was thinking that you might prefer to go into my office and I could tell you my observations and then Alexx could meet you there later." Horatio suggested and Calleigh agreed.

"That sound fine by me, but there's something else I want to do first."

"She wants to go into the gun vault." Natalia interrupted.

Smiling in her wife's direction, Calleigh replied.

"You know me so well."

"Yes I do. I'll let Horatio take you from here and come by later on with a couple of sandwiches."

Horatio walked with Calleigh to the gun vault and left her at the entrance. Kneeling down so that she was level with Mallory, Calleigh whispered in her ear.

"Now when you go in here, I don't want you to have any accidents. This is a very special place that is near and dear to my heart; almost as much as your other mommy is."

Straightening up, she entered her code in the keypad and walked inside. As she closed the door, she inhaled deeply and smiled.

"Momma's here for a visit."

Walking about the room, she let her hands glide lightly over the guns, pleased to feel that they were being kept fairly clean. Knowing that she shouldn't keep Horatio waiting, Calleigh reluctantly left the room and headed towards his office. The back hallways were rather deserted so she didn't have a hard time maneuvering herself and Mallory around. Soon they were knocking on her boss's door.

After leaving Calleigh with Horatio, Natalia headed to her lab to get to work. With everything that had been going on for the past few days, there was quite a backlog and she couldn't expect Valera to carry the entire load. So she pulled on her lab coat and got to work.

When she looked up next, it was a bit after one and her stomach was beginning to growl so she called up a nearby sandwich shop and ordered a few of sandwiches with drinks to be delivered. As soon as they arrived, she paid and carried the order upstairs to knocked on Horatio's door.

Hearing Horatio's welcome, she opened the door slowly and went in to find Horatio sitting at his desk with the case files on his desk, Calleigh pacing alongside the window and Mallory asleep on his sofa.

"Looks to me like Mallory's gottn the best end of the deal. How are things going?"

Calleigh turned in her direction, rubbing her eyes.

"I think that I got a pretty good mental picture of him, but I want to talk with Alexx before I say anything. Horatio has filled in a lot of blanks, but I would like to have one more person's perspective."

Putting the sandwiches down on the desk, Natalia went over to her wife and caressed her face.

"Are you feeling ok babe? What's the matter?"

"I'm fine, I just have a bit of a headache. I think that I just need to eat and get my mind on something else for a little while."

Leading her back to the desk, Natalia said that lunch was served and that she had brought enough for Horatio and Mallory. They pushed aside the files and quickly made their way through the food and drinks. Afterwards, Horatio offered to take Mallory out for a quick walk and to give them some privacy.

"Has your headache gone away yet?"

Reaching out to find Natalia's hand, Calleigh pulled her close and just held her for a moment, basking in the aroma of Natalia DuVista. She breathed in the fragrance that was uniquely hers and felt at peace.

"I love you Talia. I don't tell you enough, but I do."

"Calleigh, I know you do. You show me all the time, you don't have to tell me."

Leaning her head against Natalia's chest, Calleigh struggled to get her fear reined in. What she had deduced so far was scaring her, but she couldn't let Natalia see that just yet. She wanted to talk with Alexx first as her observations would be clinical and so very different from Horatio's, thus very important to Calleigh.

Pulling back a bit, Natalia lifted Calleigh's chin so that she was gazing up at her face.

"Why don't you let me put some drops in your eyes? It's rather dry in here and that maybe part of the reason that you have a headache."

Calleigh agreed and leaned her head back while Natalia took the bottle out of her pocket and administered the drops. After making sure that nothing had spilled out, she gave each their usual kiss and then decided to kiss the lips that were so inviting and so very nearby. Framing Calleigh's face with her hands, Natalia leaned down and brushed her lips against Calleigh's. Running her tongue along Calleigh's bottom lip, Natalia sighed as she was granted entrance to her mouth. Caramel colored hair, framed their faces and blocked out the light.

Calleigh sighed as she pulled away.

"Do you think that Horatio would mind if we used his sofa?"

"Cal! I can't believe you're even thinking that...Actually I can because I was thinking the same thing."

She was about to say more when there was a soft tap on the door and she went over to open the door.

Horatio walked in chuckling.

"I just realized that I probably just lessen the public's confidence in the department by walking Mallory out front. I mean; how does it look for a Police Lieutenant to be using a seeing eye dog."

Mallory bounded over to Calleigh while they were all laughing and she put her paws up on Calleigh's lap, licking her face.

Standing Calleigh was still grinning when Alexx came in and leaned against the doorframe.

Grinning, she asked. "What's so funny."

"Horatio was walking Mallory out front."

"And let me guess, he had his sunglasses on even though it's overcast and looking like it's gonna storm. Yeah Horatio, the public confidence builder strikes again."

Shaking her head, Natalia gave Calleigh a quick kiss before walking out.

"I'll leave you with Alexx and Horatio. I'll be in the lab if anyone needs me."

Waiting until she thought Natalia was well out of earshot, Calleigh turned in Horatio's direction and simply stated.

"There's going to be an email with a picture of me in it sometime today. He has repeated everything so far and that's next on the list. When does the symposium end?"

Checking his agenda, Horatio answered. "Last night was the last lecture, so people should be either gone or leaving today."

"Horatio, I don't think he's finished yet. I think that there will be at least one more and then he's gonna go after Natalia."

Turning to Alexx, Calleigh pleaded. "Alexx, help me. Tell me what you saw."

The rest of the afternoon went by quickly for Natalia as she concentrated on requests for DNA on all sorts of cases. Knowing that Calleigh was upstairs, kept her from worrying if something was wrong and that made things easier for her.

Looking over at the dwindling stack of requests, she was pleased to see that she only had a few more to go. She took a step back and shrugged her shoulders, trying to get them to relax while walking over to computer to check her email.

The first email chilled her blood, but then just as fast, raised it to a boil. Hitting the print key, she impatiently waited as the printer worked and as soon as it was finished, she snatched the copy and took off on a mission. Searching the labs and offices downstairs, she came up empty so she headed to the next floor.

On the landing, Natalia looked down the hallway and saw Ryan walking towards her from the other side and hadn't seen her yet. Growling, she headed towards him and he barely had enough time to look up from a report he was reading when he found himself slammed up against a wall with Natalia's forearm against his throat.

"You son of a bitch - I actually believed you…I actually felt bad that I thought that it was you…If it isn't you, then someone is going to a hell of a lot of effort to make it look like you did this…But I think that you're just trying to throw us off the scent."

Pushing the woman away from him, while rubbing his throat, Ryan gasped.

"What the hell is your problem?"

Reaching out, Natalia placed her thumb against the back of his hand and twisted it toward his chest, taking Ryan down to his knees in an instant as the wrist was in danger of snapping. Holding the captive arm up high with one hand, Natalia thrust the copy of the email in his face.

"Why…? Tell me why you are doing this."

Horatio, Alexx and Calleigh had came out of the office at the first sound and all looked shocked with what they saw and heard.

"Ms. Boa Vista, let me see what you have please."

Horatio's voice barely made it through her rage, but the next voice did.

"Talia, let him go. Please. Give Horatio the paper." Calleigh said as she made her way to Natalia's side.

"Get this crazy bitch off of me!"

Laying her hand on Natalia's arm, Calleigh asked again.

"Honey, let him go and we'll find out what's going on. I promise."

Slowly turning her head, Natalia looked at her wife and the rage leaked away until she finally released the arm, letting it drop and taking a step back, handing the paper to Horatio.

Alexx came forward to take Natalia into Horatio's office as Horatio looked at the paper and Calleigh reached out to touch the arm that Ryan was cradling close to his body. Sliding her hand down near his wrist, Calleigh abruptly performed the exact maneuver that Natalia just had. Again Ryan went down to his knees, but this time it was Calleigh's ice-cold voice in his ear that froze him from saying a word.

"I don't care what she does, why she does it or how she does it, but if you ever…ever refer to Natalia as a bitch again, this arm will be broken. - Do I make myself perfectly clear?"


Twisting the arm just a bit more.

"Are you sure?"

"Yes ma'am."

Dropping the arm, she turned and made her way back into the office, leaving Horatio standing in the hallway with a moaning Ryan Wolfe.

"Mr. Wolfe, you have some explaining to do and I suggest that you make it good."

Motioning to his office, he waited as Ryan slowly got to his feet and hesitantly made his way into the office with Horatio following closely behind.

Inside the office, they found Natalia standing in front of the window, looking out at the gathering storm clouds with Calleigh standing next to her, lightly rubbing her back. Holding out her hand, Alexx silently asked Horatio for the paper. He handed it over and she saw that it was a picture of Calleigh with Mallory and down at the bottom read, 'feel safe yet?'

"Mr. Wolfe, how many people knew that you were getting a dog for Calleigh?"

"I talked with my friend on Thursday night and asked Natalia about it on Friday morning. Other than that, no one else."

Turning from the window, Natalia simply stated.

"I didn't tell anyone. I even forgot to tell Calleigh until right before you got to the house. So how do you..."

Holding up his hand, Horatio interrupted her. Taking the picture back from Alexx, he offered it to Ryan.

"How do you explain this? Do you know the time that it would have been taken?"

Looking at the picture, Ryan stared at it a moment before answering.

"It looks to be about a half hour or so before Natalia got home. We had walked around the block to get Calleigh used to Mallory and were working on getting around obstacles. I think that I would have been standing about five feet behind her and to the left."

"Did you see anyone watching the house or any unusual during your time outside?"

"No, just the patrol car, nothing else."

Turning to Natalia, Horatio stated.

"I'll talk with the officer that was watching the house to see if he saw anything. If he didn't, there isn't much that we can do that we haven't done already."

Shaking her head, Natalia still felt some residual rage and didn't really trust herself to speak so she just said, "Fine. I need to get back to work. I'll come up and get you when I'm finished babe."

Brushing her hand against Calleigh's back as she left, Natalia avoided getting close to Ryan on the way out.

After the door closed, Horatio turned back to Calleigh and gently touched her on the arm.

"After hearing everything and going over the case files, what do you think about our perp?"

Calleigh hated profiling because it got her too close to the mindset of the criminal, but she realized that this was one time that she had to do her best work.

Making her way over to the conference table and sitting down, Calleigh took a moment to get her thoughts in order.

"He is in his late twenties-early thirties, living alone. May have had issues in the past with other women, but for some reason was either never reported or caught. He likes things to be precise and likes being in control while feeling very comfortable with repetition."

Leaning back, she took a moment to swallow some water before continuing.

"I think that he glues their eyes shut so that he'll be the last thing that they see. He glues the mouth shut because he controls the screams, the noises that they make and he ends it when he feels that they can't improve on what they have already given him. The nose is just to end it all on his terms."

"What about the branding? Why do you think that he does that?" Alexx questioned.

"Because he feels the need to cast the blame on someone else even though he does this way too easily for someone that has just started. Like I said, I feel that he may have had issues with women before or he's done something like this before, but not to this extent."

Turning to Alexx, Calleigh expounded. "You said that they had both died before he made the phone calls where Natalia and Horatio heard them screaming, that means that he records them. I think he saves them. I would almost lay odds that if he has had other victims, that he has a library of trophy noises of his victims."

Pausing a moment, Calleigh turned back to Horatio.

"Have you done a search for any other similar killings or scenarios?"

"Yes, and nothing came up."

Shaking her head, Calleigh stood up and called Mallory.

"I'm going to go down and talk to Natalia, I want to make sure that she's alright."

Looking at his watch, Horatio saw that it was late enough to send them home.

"Go home, Calleigh. Come back tomorrow and I'll clear it so that you can do something that is near and dear to your heart."

"You're going to let me clean my guns. Be still my heart. Thanks Horatio."

Ryan stood and opened the door for her.

"I'll walk you down."

"No, I think that you should just stay away from her for awhile. I trust you Ryan, but she has her fears and I'm not going to take them lightly. Alexx, would you come down with me though?"

"Sure, not a problem." And Alexx followed Calleigh out.

"Mr. Wolfe, a moment please."

Closing the door, Ryan turned back to his boss.

"I would like to clarify something for future reference."

Taking a step to bring him almost into Ryan's personal space, Horatio held him with a steely gaze.

"If I ever hear that you've called any of your colleagues a derogatory name and I don't care about the reason, you will be written up and it will be entered into your permanent record. And if that colleague is either Calleigh or Natalia, I'll be the one driving you to the hospital. Is that clear?"

"Yes sir."

Opening the door, Horatio motioned for him to precede him and followed him out.

Calleigh and Alexx went down the back stairway and hallway until Alexx was able to look into Natalia's lab without being noticed.

"How does she look Alexx?"

"She looks tired and stressed out. She's actually just leaning against a table with her head in her hands."

Shaking her head, Calleigh leaned against a nearby a wall.

"I didn't know she had that in her, I just never thought that she would ever get physical."

Taking a step back, Alexx was glad that her friend couldn't see her face because she would have been offended.

"Girl, think about it this way. When you were on the roof and Jake had Natalia, how did you feel? - You were furious and scared… Well, she feels a hundred times worse because for one thing, we don't know who's doing this. Second, whoever this is has already taken two lives and you're guessing that there will another. Third, he's made it personal by putting her name on their bodies, but most importantly, he's now bringing you into the equation and she doesn't know how to protect you…Now I know that you're going to say that you don't need protecting and to a certain extent, you're right. However, there are some people that won't be stopped by a dog or security system and Natalia is terrified that this guy is one of them. And to tell you the truth, as much as I don't think Ryan is the one, I can see every one of her fears and understand how she thinks that way."

"I can too, and I feel just as frustrated as she does because I can't protect her either. I can however, help her forget about everything for a while, at least for tonight. Can you do me another favor and make a phone call for me?"

After telling Alexx, what she needed; Calleigh made her way over to Natalia's lab and went inside.

Natalia looked up as the door opened and straightened her posture without even thinking until she remembered that she couldn't be seen.

"Hey darlin', you about ready to go home? I've arranged for dinner to be delivered and I was thinking that we could test out the hot tub since I don't have the cast anymore. How do you feel about a bottle of wine, hummus with pita chips and shish kabobs?"

Shutting down her workstation, Natalia walked over to lightly grasp Calleigh's hand.

"That sounds like heaven as long as you're wearing your black bikini."

Getting a mischievous look in her face, Calleigh suggested.

"I didn't say that was going to be wearing anything, but if you insist."

"Oh, don't let me stop you from being comfortable. Your comfort is very important to me."

Tugging on the hand within her grasp, Calleigh suggested.

"Well then, let's go home and see what comes up… or off."

Opening the door to the lab, Natalia waited for Calleigh and Mallory to go out before she skirted around them to press the elevator button. Standing next to her wife, waiting for the doors to open, Natalia had a very hard time not leaning against her and taking strength from her embrace. Sighing deeply, she wasn't too surprised when Calleigh's voice drifted over.

"Just hang in there until we get home baby and I'll give you a hug like you've never had before."

Lowering her head, Natalia hid the smile that crinkled her eyes.

"For that, I can wait."

The doors whispered open, they stepped in and rode it to the main floor and got out. They were almost to the side door, when it opened and Jethro rushed in, brushing water from his hair.

"Well, good afternoon ladies. It looks like the South Florida rainy season has started. How are you doing Ms. Duquesne? I see that you have a new friend here."

"Hi Jethro, I'm doing well, but I didn't know that it started raining. And yes, I decided that I needed a bit of help getting around until my sight came back."

Looking contrite, Natalia started apologizing to the young man.

"I am so sorry that I didn't call you last week for our coffee date. I was swamped and if I have to be honest, it just slipped my mind. Tomorrow for sure, we will go in the afternoon. Ok?"

"It's quite alright Natalia, I know how involved someone can get with their work and tomorrow afternoon would be a perfect time. I will hold you accountable for our date though. I'm looking forward to it. Have a nice evening, ladies."

Natalia looked at the retreating figure, pausing before she opened the door.

"Are you alright Talia? What's wrong?"

Shaking her head, dismissing the thought, Natalia replied.

"Nothing babe. I'm just tired and ready to go home. It looks however, like the hot tub is out, but we can have a picnic in bed though."

"Hmm, you…without a question, most excellent… a bottle of wine… good… hummus….too messy, but I can work with it…kabobs…oh, I can most definitely work with it…ok, let's go."

By the time that they got home and inside, the delivery driver was knocking at the front door. After paying for the food, Natalia carried everything into the kitchen and started to plate the food.

Hearing her name, she looked up and almost dropped the plate that she was holding. Standing in the doorway of their bedroom was Calleigh, wearing nothing, but a smile.

"You did say that I should be comfortable, right?"

Putting the plate down, Natalia quickly made sure that the food would be out of reach from Mallory, before going over to her wife and sweeping her off her feet.

"Hey, I thought that we were going to eat dinner in bed." Calleigh exclaimed.

Depositing Calleigh on the bed and ripping off her own clothes, Natalia muttered.

"I'm gonna be eating something in bed."

Throwing her arm over Calleigh's hips, Natalia began to lav the tiny little bundle of nerves as a thought sprang in her mind.

'I do so love comfort food.'

Calleigh filled Natalia's senses in every manner. Her moans and sighs were like music to her ears. Looking up and seeing the lithe body undulating was like watching a masterpiece being created. The smell and taste of Calleigh's arousal far surpassed the most expensive meal Natalia had ever experienced and the feel of the warm slickness around her fingers was silkier than any cloth ever made.

Natalia took Calleigh over the edge repeatedly, making her growl out her name as she fisted the sheets so hard that the bottom sheet actually came untucked.

"Baby...Darlin...Talia...Stop...Please...Aw damn...No more...Please."

Slowly fluttering her fingers, Natalia removed them from the still throbbing warmness and crawled up the sweaty body, pausing to kiss and lick on her way up. Brushing the damp, golden tresses from Calleigh's face, Natalia could barely make out her features in the waning light. Leaning over to the nightstand, she turned on a lamp and turned back to her wife. Looking over, she saw that Calleigh was laying there with her eyes closed, looking like she was trying to catch her breath.

Drawing into her embrace, Natalia whispered.

"Are you ok, babe?"

"I'm perfect, I couldn't be any better."

Placing a gentle kiss on her damp forehead, Natalia agreed.

"Yes you are, just perfect."

They laid in the quiet long enough for Calleigh to catch her breath until she rose from Natalia's arms to kneel over her.

Golden hair curtained their faces and their breath moved it like a gentle breeze. Leaning down, Calleigh pressed gentle kisses on Natalia's forehead, eyelids, the tip of her nose and finally upon her lips.

"What are you doing a month from now?"

"Honey, I don't have any idea. What did you have in mind?"

Leaning down to lightly brush her lips against Natalia's, Calleigh breathed.

"I thought that you might want to marry me again"

Going still, Natalia slowly pushed Calleigh up until she could look into her eyes.

"Are you saying what I think you are?"

With a very straight face, but with twinkling eyes Calleigh replied.

"What I saying is that you are the most beautiful woman that I have ever seen and I want to look at your face for the rest of my life."

Wrapping her arms around the now grinning woman, Natalia rolled them until she was leaning over Calleigh.

"You can see...Honest? You're not kidding me?"

"No my love, I am not kidding you. You're very blurry, but if I get close enough, I can see you as clearly as I can see you in my heart."

Reaching up, Calleigh brushed her fingertips across Natalia's face.

"So my beautiful love, will you marry me a month from now, in front of our family and friends?"

"Cal, I will marry you anytime and anywhere that you want."

Calleigh framed Natalia's face, drinking in the sight of seeing the love shining through Natalia's eyes.

"I was so scared that I would never see your face again and that was the hardest thing that I tried to face. I was also terrified that you would get tired of having a blind wife and leave me." Calleigh whispered.

"I won't leave you babe – ever. Nothing will ever happen to cause that. I'll fight the devil himself to stay with you for as long as you will have me."

"The next couple of lifetimes will be a good beginning, but right now, I just want to look at you."

Kissing Natalia as her hands roamed silky skin, Calleigh turned them so that she was on top and looking down into velvet brown eyes.

Pausing Calleigh whispered.

"I can't even begin to tell you how beautiful you are. There are no words to even begin to describe how I see you."

"Babe, you don't have to use words; your actions and, once again, your eyes show me how you see me and how much you love me."

Lying down on her side, Calleigh propped her head with one hand while letting the other slowly trail down the lovely bronze body next to her, watching as goose bumps rose and muscles shifted. Her hand traveled lower, but her sight shifted up to Natalia's face so she could watch the play of emotions.

Even though she was trying to keep her gaze locked on Calleigh, Natalia lost the fight as the first wave of an orgasm began to pulsate through her body and her eyes rolled back.

Once she lost contact with Natalia's gaze, Calleigh moved down, licking and kissing as she went. She marveled once again at the goose bumps that followed her path and rejoiced in the way that Natalia's body responded to her touch.

As she positioned herself between Natalia's legs, Calleigh's nostrils flared at the scent of Natalia's arousal. Burying her tongue between the slick folds, Calleigh groaned and hummed as her wife trembled and fisted the already damaged sheets When she finally suckled on the lard little bundle of nerves, Natalia almost jumped off the bed and screamed out Calleigh's name. Reaching down, Natalia tangled her fingers in golden hair, tugged upwards until Calleigh began to refocus her attention from her tongue to her fingers, swiftly sliding in two fingers into throbbing warmth, curling to hit the tiny ridges and stroking the tiny nub with her thumb. This time Natalia swore, she saw stars.

Calleigh leaned in close to watch Natalia's face and silent tears began to roll down her face.

"Open your eyes Talia." Calleigh whispered.

Chocolate eyes opened and for a brief instant, she looked worried before Calleigh added another finger inside of her, filling her even more.

"Who do you belong to?"

"I'm yours Cal… Only you."

Leaning down, Calleigh kissed her hard; pouring her love, her joy and her very soul into it. She wanted there to be no doubt how she felt about the woman in her arms, so with a final thrust and twist, she brought another rush of an orgasm racing through Natalia's body so hard that she actually thought that she felt the rush herself and it left her breathless.

Collapsing next to her wife's body, Calleigh thought once again for the hundredth time that night that she had never seen anything more beautiful than the body next to her. The body that was covered in a light sweat with her cheeks flushed and hair spread out over her pillow.

Turning her head slightly, Natalia looked at her wife and saw that she was silently crying. Reaching down, she slowly withdrew the fingers that were still buried deep inside of her, gasping as they slowly came out. Then turning and pulling the blonde into her embrace, Natalia placed gentle kisses upon the closed eyes.

"It's ok now babe. You can let go of all of the fear and look, see, watch, and observe….anything that you want to do with those beautiful green eyes."

Opening her eyes, Calleigh gazed into the face that was inches away from her own; amazed that this woman knew her so well. She knew the private fear that Calleigh had and even though she had never vocalized it, she understood it and was there to help Calleigh through it.

"I'm yours Natalia. Now and forever."

Pulling Natalia's lips down to hers, Calleigh gave a tender kiss that portrayed more emotion than anything else she could have done. Laying her head on Natalia's shoulder, they enjoyed the silence until Calleigh's stomach began to make noises.

Laughing they got up, made their way into the shower and cleaned up. After putting on their nightclothes, Natalia put in the eyes drops and once again kissed them as their ritual continued. Then they made their way into the kitchen to find that Mallory was staring balefully at the now cold food on the counter. While Natalia warmed up the food, Calleigh took the dog out to take care of her needs, hurrying her along as it was now raining in earnest. After they came back in, Calleigh gave Mallory her dinner and then sat down with her wife to enjoy theirs. Once they were finished, they cleaned up and went back to bed, falling asleep in each other's arms.
