Sorry it took me so long to update! I have no excuse so just read and forgive me ;)
She felt pathetic.
She didn't feel like doing anything buy laying in bed, wearing his clothes, with a bottle of wine in her hand and the song that was playing on their first date in the background.
She hated herself for losing the best thing that ever happened to her over some stupid and childish principle. But she wasn't ready to open up and get burnt just like in the past. So she kept things to herself and lost him. Was it really worth it?
Even Lindsey started worrying about her mother who'd barely eat or even come out of her room. She feared that if things didn't change, something bad would happen. So she called him; she called Lou.
"Hey, thanks for coming," Lindsey said once she opened the door to see him standing on the other side, not looking better than her mom, "You gotta talk to her."
"Lindsey, you know that your mother and I are no longer together, right?" Lou's voice was tired and the last thing he wanted to do was argue.
"So why are you here?" His gaze dropped to the floor and, without waiting for an answer, Lindsey gestured to Catherine's bedroom, "She's in her bedroom."
Lou nodded without saying a word and stepped inside, walking toward Catherine's bedroom and knocking on the door.
"Lindsey, I told you I wanted to be alone." Catherine's groggy voice came from inside the room.
Lou opened the door slightly and poked his head around it, "It's me."
Catherine instantly sat up and looked at him, "What are you doing here?" She was pale and she was still wearing his clothes and holding the bottle of wine in her hand.
He opened the door wider and stepped inside nervously, his hands in his pockets, "Lindsey called me."
Catherine sighed and looked away, "I told her to stay out of it," She mumbled and looked back up at Lou, "She's shouldn't have done that. I'm sorry."
Lou couldn't see her like that; he wasn't used to see her so weak and vulnerable. She was always the 'big, touch CSI Willows', and it broke his heart to see her like that. Suddenly he forgot about all the anger and he walked over to her bed and sat on the edge. Her deep blue eyes were staring at him as he took the wine bottle from her and put it on her bedside table. She didn't even bother to argue or take it back. He brought his hand up to her face and gently rested it on her cheek. Surprisingly, she closed her eyes and leaned into his hand. She hadn't realized how much she missed his touch until that moment.
"Let's get you out of these clothes and into shower," Lou whispered, but Catherine shook her head as a tear escaped her closed eye, "Catherine, why are you doing this to yourself? He asked softly. He didn't want to fight anymore.
"I'm sorry." She whispered, keeping her eyes closed, and put her hand over his on her cheek.
Lou looked her up and down for a moment before whispering, "You're wearing my clothes." Catherine opened her eyes to see him smiling, and couldn't help but smile herself. She could never resist his charming smile; the smile that always brightened up her day; the smile that always made her feel better when she was upset; the smile she hadn't seen for two weeks.
"You're not mad?" She whispered.
"I could never be mad at you for so long," He smiled softly and stroked her cheek, "Will you take me back?"
Her face suddenly lit up and she nodded. A smile spread on Lou's face and he pulled her face to his and claimed her mouth in a deep kiss.
"Lou?" Catherine smiled against his lips"
"Make love to me." She mumbled against his lips as she pulled him closer.
