Grissom Versus the Volcano

Catherine immediately spotted the detective that was talking to Sara in the hallway of the police department. She'd never seen him before. Catherine was pretty certain of that, since she was positive that she would've remembered a detective like him. He was extremely good-looking. But his eyes were what intrigued her the most. His eyes seemed to be grey, blue and green at the same time, they were bright and gorgeous. The man was passionately talking about something, which Catherine assumed was the case. She couldn't help but stare at the man though. She tried to read the file about her current case –some weirdo who'd placed a bomb in a car,- but she kept glancing over her case file to search for the detective. After a couple of times, she realised she hadn't read a single line of her file yet. And when she looked up again for about the tenth time in less than two minutes, a pair of green eyes stared right back into hers. Catherine realised that Sara was nowhere to be found, and that the detective was simply standing at the same place as where he'd been, but instead of talking to Sara, he was now looking at her. He offered her a small –but cute, she had to add,- smile and then walked away with his phone next to his ear. Catherine kept staring at the spot where the detective had been standing for a couple of seconds after he'd walked away. She was curious to find out who exactly that detective was. She knew she had to figure that out a little later; for now, she needed to focus on a certain idiot who'd placed a bomb in a car.

Later that night, Catherine walked bye the interrogation rooms. She again spotted the handsome detective that was inside with Sara and Warrick. He was standing, and Catherine looked at him for a while. He sometimes opened his mouth to say something, but left most of the talking to Sara and Warrick. Just when she wanted to walk along, the detective's eyes met hers. He didn't smile at her this time, but she could tell that he didn't mind the fact that she was looking at him. Not at all. Catherine gave him a smile before walking towards Grissom's office to discuss their case.


Catherine was exhausted when she was able to go home. She grabbed her purse out of her locker and looked at her cell phone, where she found a message from Lindsey. While she read it, she walked out of the locker room, not expecting to meet another person in the hallway. As soon as she turned around the corner though, she bumped into someone. "I'm sorry, I didn't see you…". Catherine stopped talking halfway through her sentence when she realised she was staring into the pretty eyes of the detective she had seen a couple of times that day. She smiled immediately and couldn't help but say in a flirtatious way: "We seem to see each other a lot today, don't we?"

The detective smiled back and said: "Apparently, we do. You shouldn't walk 'round the hallways like that though," he said, pointing at the cell phone she was holding, "you could hurt yourself."

She knew that he was making sort of a joke and said: "I think I'll be fine."

"I bet you will."

Catherine smiled again and said: "So, you're new here I guess, I've never seen you here before."

The detective nodded. "Yeah, I just transferred from Nevada. Lou Vartann."

He held out his hand, and Catherine placed her soft hand in his when she said: "I'm Catherine Willows."

Vartann already knew who she was, but didn't say anything about that. He just shook her delicate, soft hand and nodded. Catherine looked at her watch and than said: " Well, I have to go. My daughter's waiting for me. But it was nice to meet you, detective Vartann."

"It was nice meeting you too."

The smile the detective gave her this time almost made Catherine weak in her knees. He was incredibly handsome, and his smile was incredible. She flashed him a smile as well, and prayed that it looked the way she wanted it to look when she said: " I'll see you around, I guess."

He nodded and said: "I'm sure about that. Have a nice day."

Catherine gave him one last smile before she continued to walk down the hallway, heading for the exit. The handsome detective looked after the redhead. He couldn't help but smile. Lou Vartann had to admit that he wasn't quickly impressed by a woman. The redhead had been able to impress him though. He already knew who she was; Catherine Willows was well known by almost every man in the police department. He had just started working as a detective in Las Vegas. His new co-workers had told him things about the people working in the Las Vegas department, and they hadn't said a word too much about the redheaded woman; she definitely was sexy. But Lou immediately had the feeling that she was more than sexy. Something about her made him smile, and it wasn't just her flirty way of talking or her at first sight extremely good looking body or her beautiful eyes or her dazzling smile. There was more about her than that. And Lou hoped that he would be able to figure that out some time soon.
