Spoiler; Body Double by Tess Geritsen and up to the part in Season 2 Rizzoli and Isles when Maura discovers her biological family.

Disclaimer; not mine they Belong to the brilliant Tess Geritsen and TNT

Author's Note; I know I shouldn't be writing another story with so many open, however this has been bugging me ever since I started Hunger for You. I always felt that Tess Geritsen, much as I love her writing, I felt that she should have got more out of the emotion of the scene. It was a disappointment that they didn't use the way that Tess Geritsen brought the idea for bringing for Maura's sibling. I think the emotion they would have wrung out of the whole thing could have been amazing. However in a way I understand why they didn't because if they did they would have had to allow Jane's real emotions about Maura whether they were going to be friends or lovers and although they keep saying they are heterosexual they love playing the lesbian subtext, I don't believe they could have done that with Geritsen's story line. So I am trying for the relationship in the show and the storyline from the books and mixing them. In the book Jane was 8 months pregnant with with agents Dean's baby but that won't be happening the story of Maura's parents might or might not make it in the story but not quite as the book. Hmm, more spoilers from the book than the series.

AN 2 I have always written many stories at the same time, it gets me out of writers block for others stories. I hope it doesn't drive people insane. Rizzles of course

AN 3 some Read All About It (part 3) by Emili Sande, who comes from near where I was born I didn't spend a lot of time in my home city but am proud two of my favourite singers come from there Emili Sande along with the fabulous Annie Lennox. I am sure it won't take long to Google where it is and with up the Dons and we finally one something after more than 20 years I am sure I have made it easy :-)

Be careful what you wish for

Frost was on the end of another one of Jane's rants about the ability or rack lack of the ability of Dr. Pike, she was convinced that he was screwing up her cases on purpose.

"Tell me again Korsak, when is Dr. Isles due back from Paris?" Frost asked, the two weeks that Maura had been away on a conference and spending some time with her parents was driving them all insane. The mixture of Pike's inability to do his job compared to the chief M.E was bad enough to deal with. Jane however was taking it to a whole new level. She had only just admitted that she was missing her best friend a little, when the whole department could see it was much deeper and not helped with jerks like Crowe asking her how much she was missing her girlfriend and making gross sexual innuendo about her having a sore left wrist with Maura not being there to take care of her needs. Four fights had almost broken out in the last couple of days.

"This is not about Maura, I am waiting on lab results to close out cases we already hold the perp for, we are stuck on cold cases until something comes in and... " She broke off her rant again to look at her watch again, "And Maura should have got in 2 hours ago and she hasn't called. I am bored, but hey it's Friday and five o'clock anyone fancy going to The Robber and throwing back a couple of cold ones?"

"I have to finish off some paperwork, you two don't have too many, you're on call remember," Korsak watched as his younger colleagues had already pulled on their jackets his words of wisdom already blown off as they headed for the bar.

An unhappy Dr. Isles may have been comfortably sitting in first class on her Trans-Atlantic flight, however the 3 hours delay at Charles de Gaulle airport had given her a splitting headache. Although, if the honey blonde was being honest, she had had the headache the whole 2 weeks she was away. If she was being even more honest with herself, she would admit that the emotional upheaval in her life caused by a certain gorgeous Italian detective was the whole problem. Maura had never had a best friend before but she was certain that their relationship was not normal; the little touches, the sharing of beds, the dislike of any men that appeared in one another's life, not normal. She knew she had fallen in love with Jane Rizzoli, the cop was all she could think about while she was away. There was no way she could share her feelings with her friend, in case she lost her forever. Maura pinched the bridge of her nose trying to force her headache away.

Susie Chang had called Jane a few hours ago to warn her that Dr. Isles flight had been delayed and it had added to the Italian's already bad mood. She was pissed that the M.E was delayed, she was pissed that Maura had added time on her conference to be with her parents, had lumbered Jane with the insufferable Dr Pike for longer than was necessary, and most of all she was pissed with her best friend for making her miss her so much.

She wanted to be seated in their usual booth at The Dirty Robber with Maura nagging her about her unhealthy eating habits then stealing fries off her plate. Most of all it hurt to be away from a friend, who looked like she had walked off a fashion runway, yet was the smartest person she had ever met. One tilt of her head and that little smile she gave had Jane wrapped around her finger. She was in love with Dr. Maura Isles, she was terrified to tell her in case she lost her. If nothing else these two weeks had taught her she couldn't manage without the beautiful doctor in her life.

When the local uniforms had arrived at the scene of the shooting they knew there would be trouble, it's not like shootings occurred frequently in the up market part of Boston that was Beacon Hill. When they recognized the woman that had been shot through the head while seated in the car outside of the home, they knew this was way above their pay grade, as did their boss who called Lieutenant Cavanaugh at BPD headquarters.

xxxxxxxxxxxx

The first thing that Cavanaugh did was call in Vince Korsak and ask his old friend to check the scene out first before the whispers got around about the dead woman. He told Sergeant Korsak that no matter who it was they had to stick to rotation and Rizzoli and Frost were next up. It could be argued that this was too personal, but technically it was too personal a case for any of them and there was a chance the Feds might have to be called in.

The first thing that Korsak did before leaving his desk was call Frankie Rizzoli to check his mother wasn't about to walk in to murder scene. When the younger Rizzoli had said his mom was on a night out with her friends and would be crashing the night with them, Korsak had one weight lifted off his chest.

When he arrived at the crime scene and identified the dead woman the feeling of sadness that lodged in Korsak's heart was almost more than he could bear. Who would do this? He felt bereft, he couldn't imagine how the young members of his team where going to feel. CSU had been called and he watched as Susie Chang stumbled and fell when she saw the beautiful face in the car. He didn't think she would be the last tonight, with a heavy heart he picked up his phone.

xxxxxxxxxx

Frost picked up his phone puzzled that Korsak had called him and not Jane. "Hey big guy... woo hoo, Jane we've got a case."

Jane gave him a thumbs up and got ready to go, she watched as he turned away from her his face falling. He ended the call with a brief. "I'll try."

"What are you going to try and do Frosty."

"I...you don't need to come to the scene, it's just a shooting and you know Pike will drive you mad and Korsak is already there." Frost was desperate to keep his partner away from a scene that would rip them all apart, but her worse than all of them.

"Hey since when do you make the decisions on whether I need to go to a scene, senior partner here, remember?" The infamous Rizzoli temper raising its head.

"You don't want to do this one Janie," Frost said, surprising her with his urgency, if she had thought about it and listened she would have known the trouble she was in. Her mind though went back to her first few months in homicide and how she was treated. She bristled with resentment at Frost, a guy she expected much more of.

"When we are on rotation you don't get to tell me which scenes I want to go to, and don't call me Janie," snapped Rizzoli at her partner. "And you can drive seeing as I didn't get the call of where the fuck the scene actually is."

Frost trailed behind his partner, devastated already, wishing he had a choice between going to this scene or not and wondering who was going to pick up the pieces of Jane Rizzoli. She stood by his car glaring at him.

When she got in the car, she was about to mess with his radio and put some hard rock on to piss him off when a song came on that she had heard at the opening of the London Olympics and although not her usual style she loved it. For the first time she listened to words and they reverberated in her head and snuck into her heart.

You've got the words to change a nation

But you're biting your tongue

She was sick of biting her tongue, denying her sexuality because of being teased all through school and then police academy. The words dyke and queer always ringing in her ears.

You've spent a life time stuck in silence

Afraid you'll say something wrong

If no one ever hears it how we gonna learn your song?

She wanted to show the world her feelings, get the whole fucking thing off her chest.

So come on, come on

Come on, come on

You've got a heart as loud as lions

So why let your voice be tamed?

Maybe we're a little different

There's no need to be ashamed

It made her smile to think of all the differences between her and Maura and it was like the honey blonde could chase away all the darkness away from her, with her radiant smile and the little clip-clop of her high heels. She needed this woman badly.

You've got the light to fight the shadows

So stop hiding it away

Maybe this song was message to her and she was meant to hear it tonight, this was finally the time.

Come on, come on

I wanna sing, I wanna shout

I wanna scream 'til the words dry out

So put it in all of the papers,

I'm not afraid

They can read all about it

Read all about it, oh

She felt the epiphany break through this was her time and if Maura agreed to be by her side, she didn't care if the whole of Boston, Massachusetts or all of New England knew about it.

Oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh-oh

At night we're waking up the neighbours

While we sing away the blues

Making sure that we're remembered, yeah

Cause we all matter too

If the truth has been forbidden

Then we're breaking all the rules

The words of the song where pulling her into places that were definitely NC-17 , it was a fun thought to wake up Maura's neighbours (as long as her mother was not there) with all the fantasies she had in her head for so long.

So come on, come on

Come on, come on,

Let's get the TV and the radio

To play our tune again

It's 'bout time we got some airplay of our version of events

There's no need to be afraid

I will sing with you my friend

She hoped that Maura would accept her feelings, they teased each other all the time and she felt her feelings would be reciprocated by her best friend and isn't it what people dreamed about; the person you love being your best friend?

Come on, come on

I wanna sing, I wanna shout

I wanna scream 'til the words dry out

So put it in all of the papers,

I'm not afraid

They can read all about it

Read all about it, oh

Oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh-oh

Yeah, we're all wonderful, wonderful people

So when did we all get so fearful?

Now we're finally finding our voices

So take a chance, come help me sing this

Yeah, we're all wonderful, wonderful people

So when did we all get so fearful?

And now we're finally finding our voices

Just take a chance, come help me sing this

Her mind fluttered around the many memories she had of the woman she wanted, the smiles, the flirts, the touches and the occasional snuggling in bed together. They had practically dated for a year and half, what was she so scared of? The joy in her heart was something she had never felt before. She couldn't wait to see Maura tonight and tell her everything.

I wanna sing, I wanna shout

I wanna scream 'til the words dry out

So put it in all of the papers,

I'm not afraid

They can read all about it

Read all about it, oh

Oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh-oh

I wanna sing, I wanna shout

I wanna scream 'til the words dry out

So put it in all of the papers,

I'm not afraid

They can read all about it

Read all about it, oh

Even once the song had finished Jane had been so lost in her thoughts about Maura that it was only starting to register in her brain that Frost had not only driven down some very familiar streets, they were approaching a crime scene outside a house that she spent more time in than her own apartment.

"Oh god, Frost is it..." Jane gulped back the tears. "Is it Ma? Has something happened to my mother?"

He turned his face towards her, tears streaming down his face. "It's not your Ma Jane...you don't want to remember her like this. Stay in the car, I'll call Frankie or your Ma to come and be with you."

"No! No, no, oh god, no. It can't be her, it can't be I was gonna tell her..." With that Jane was running towards the scene. Her mind took in the sight of Susie Chang crying on the step, Korsak was standing in front of a white Taurus hire car and he tried to wrestle her away from it. She had to see, she had to know and like Susie Chang before her, when she saw the beautiful face of the Chief Medical Officer of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, with her brains splattered all over a crappy little hire car, her legs went from under her and she started to scream to the heavens.
