Respite

by izhilzha

~~~~~

Not all the dreams are nightmares.

Those come every time I shut my eyes. Faces twist out of proportion, blurring and running in shades of gray and red. Laughter echoes. Blows smash into my back, chest, stomach--no pain, but coming one on top of the other so I can’t catch my breath and the world spins away. . . .

The others come when I least expect them. Darkness cut by a familiar smell, lavender and chamomile. A light touch strokes the crown of my head, smoothing my hair and unbruised scalp.

Tears still come, when I wake, but these don’t hurt.

Wow. You weren't kidding when you said you wanted to post. :-) Lovely, as before. And I like the 1st-person.

Glad you like the first-person. :-) And yeah, I almost posted this at lunchtime; I wanted it On The Jouranl Now.

Nice. Mind you, I felt bad watching that scene, knowing things Greg doesn't know. Does he still have a crush on Sara?

Thank you. :-)

I'm not sure, though his comment about knowing "that Sidle scent" might imply that he does. I know what you mean about feeling kind of bad for him, since we know that Sara is (currently) taken. Oddly enough, that scene still felt like one of the most beautiful I've ever seen on this show...which I suppose is where this little fic sprang from.

Oh yes, it was a terrific scene, I liked it as soon as Sara showed up. I only meant that I felt bad for Greg, that "I came here for you" might have sounded fairly encouraging to him once he felt better.

Heh. True; which is probably why this fic is set while he's still recovering, before the potential angst can set in. :-)

I read in an interview with ES that he hopes they address the Sara/Grissom thing in relation to the crush Greg has on Sara. So it sounds like, yeah, Greg still has a crush (or that's the way ES still thinks of him and is playing him).

I guess I read that same interview, it's what got me thinking about it. :)

Yeah, see? Such a great episode. *happy sigh*

I've tried watching CSI:NY, and while it doesn't offend me the way CSI:MIAMI does, it doesn't really draw me in, either.

I think Grissom's team stole my heart so throughly I haven't room for another one. :-)
