Here is the alternate ending.
The little blue corvette pulled up to the front of the McGarrett home kicking up the dust as she stopped abruptly at the gate.
"I think I just lost 10 years from my life" Steve commented as he released his grip from the arm rest
"Oh, come on it wasn't that bad, was it?" Catherine asked with a tone of light sarcasm
"You always do that when you're nervous" he stated as he looked at her
"Do what? Drive fast?" She didn't know what he was talking about
"Bite your lip" He reached his hand and gently caressed her lips with his fingers
She smiled and gently pulled back causing him to retract his hand. He smiled.
He got out of the car and walked over to the driver's side, opening the door for her. She hesitated, and after a slight pause, took Steve's hand and exited the car.
He gently placed his hand on the small of her back as he guided her along the pathway to the entrance, "So, are you coming in?" he asked as he opened the front door and held it for her to pass
"Yeh, sure" she stated as she paused in the doorway.
She walked in and stood in the living room, not quite sure what to do next.
Steve looked around for some sort of inspiration, "Food", he thought out loud as he excitedly made his way into the kitchen "what do you want to eat? Kono bought a bunch of stuff last night" he walked over to the refrigerator and opened it.
He searched through the contents when Catherine produced the box of pasta from the cabinet. "I can make some pasta?" she suggested
"That would be great. I'll make the sauce" he bent down and rummaged through the cabinet in search of a pot.
She watched him as he moved through the kitchen. He was smiling, he was too comfortable, he was oblivious to her awkwardness. "This is too easy for him" she thought to herself. She began to feel as if she was making a mistake, as if she were letting him off too easy.
As her insecurities continued to flood her mind, she exclaimed "You know, I don't think I'm hungry anymore" Catherine stated as she put the box of pasta on the table.
He turned to look at her "Are you sure?" He paused "Ok, we don't have to eat, we could watch a movie. I think I saw The Notebook lying around here somewhere, or do you prefer Chuckie?" He could see that she was nervous and scared.
"Funny" pursing her lips, she slowly walked over to him and reaching out for his hand, took hold of it. She wanted to be with him, but she knew that it would be a mistake that she could never take back. "I think I should go"
He hesitated for a second as she waited for a response "Please don't leave".
"I really should go before…." Before she could complete her sentence, he grabbed hold of her arms and gently shoved her against the wall.
"Steve, don't, please, I can't" she tried to resist, but as he leaned in and kissed her passionately, she felt herself melt in his touch. His tongue danced around hers and at that moment she knew that the animal magnetism they always shared was taking over.
Reaching for the straps on her dress he tugged until they tore, causing the dress to fall to the ground.
Simultaneously, she grabbed for his shirt and raised it over his head. She tossed in to the ground as he grabbed hold of her and lifted her onto the kitchen counter.
She wanted to protest, she wanted to resist, but she felt herself give in. She wanted him and he knew it.
Reaching for her panties he tugged, pulled them down, and discarded them. He reached his hands between her thighs and forcefully parted them enough to stand between as he embraced her in his arms. He grabbed her waist and brought her now naked body closer to his now aroused self. She allowed him to explore her body as he pressed against hers.
Feeling her heart race, she moved her hands across his chest and slowly scratched her way to his back. Her hands trembled as they outlined his muscles. She continued to feel his skin against her fingers as her hands continued moving downward. Taking hold of the waistband of his pants, she tugged at the buckle as she unfastened it. They dropped to the floor. He stood naked as she firmly grabbed his ass and using it as leverage, forced herself slightly closer.
Their eyes were locked as she wrapped her legs tightly around his waist. Her arms continued to embrace him as they became completely entranced by the raw emotions that were flooding both their hearts and minds.
He held her tighter and with a forceful tug, brought her even closer, close enough to feel her wetness, as he leaned in to kiss her. The kiss was hard, fast and raw. The passion was boiling inside him as he ravaged her with his touch and hungrily devowered her with his tongue. Retreating to take a look at her face, he could see the tears welling in her brown eyes.
"Are you ok?" he panted "am I hurting you?"
"Don't stop" she blurted without a thought "I need you to…"
"shhh" he pressed his lips on her mouth.
Stopping just enough to take a breath, he whispered "I always loved you. I always will love you"
Tightening her grip "I want you, I need you" she responded breathlessly.
He smirked as his body forcefully rubbed against hers and with a fast but deliberate motion they became one.
He never lost sight of her as he pushed his body against hers. His arms held her firmly on the counter, as they both rocked in hurried rhythm. She allowed it with no resistance. His eyes closed, as he listened to her release a loud moan with every motion. And with a sudden shrill, he knew that he had won her over. Any doubt he had was now gone.
"I am so sorry, I will never leave you. I will never do anything to hurt you ever again. You have my word" he whispered as he allowed her body to rest against his chest. Out of breath, covered in sweat, their naked bodies intertwined, he held her tightly.
She reached her arms around his shoulders and grabbed hold of the back of his neck. She pressed her face against his cheek and bringing her lips to his ear, she whispered "I missed you so much, and this was amazing" she hesitated " but I can't, I'm sorry, I just don't believe you" She threw her head back, forcefully pushed him away and jumped off the counter.
"What? Cath, where are you going?" He was completely taken by surprise
"I'm sorry, I can't do this. I am so sorry, please just let me go, please" She scurried to retrieve her clothes from the floor as she ran out of the kitchen.
Steve immediately chased after her as he too scurried to retrieve his clothes. "Cath! Stop!" he shouted as he tripped his way across the room
She hurriedly dressed as she grabbed her keys from the table. Racing towards the door, he grabbed her arm and stopped her.
"Why are you leaving? You can't just leave. I thought we made a connection. I thought we were good. You can't tell me you didn't feel what just happened in there. You said you loved me. Why are you doing this?" He pleaded desperately
"I love you. I do. I really really do, but I can't be that woman anymore. I want to forgive you, I want to believe you, I am trying so hard, but I can't. I can't give myself to you completely. I thought I could. I wanted to. I wanted to love you with every ounce in my heart. There is no denying that, but I can't get out of my mind the fact that you just left. You abandoned us. You just left and I don't know if you will do it again. I am sorry, but I can't live like this. I don't trust you, and I know that I never will. Every time you walk out this door, I will be wondering if you will ever come back." Placing her hand on his cheek, she continued "I am so happy that you are alive. I never wish anything bad for you, but we are just not meant to be. Please, don't come after me, don't call me, just let me go. Let me have a normal life. I need to have a normal life. If you love me as much as you say, you will just let me go. Please." She kissed him one last time, opened the door and left.
Steve stood completely still, completely in shock. He didn't react, he didn't chase after her; he just let her go.
The End. What did you think of this alternate ending? Review! review! review!
I hope I was successful in making the sex rougher and more animalistic. I wanted a different tone than the original ending. Did I succeed?
Again: Thank you so much for indulging me in this little fantasy called fanfiction.
