Pregnant? How?

Erotica / Romance

Sick

Ryan stared as Horatio puked his guts out into the toilet. He'd been puking for the last three weeks,and it was really getting on his nerves.

''You calling in sick,today?''

''No. I've called in sick enough already. I'm going to work.''

Ryan looked at him sympathetically.

The redhead had been puking up everything that he ate. As a result,he'd lost some weight,and he was as white as snow. His body never had time to even start trying to digest anything he choked down.

Since he couldn't eat anything and the only thing he held down was pills,Horatio simply stuck to vitamins and water.

Horatio went to stand,and he when he did he staggered and fell into Ryan's arms.

''H,you-'' ''-I'm going to work,and you can't stop me. Stop acting so protective.''

Ryan sighed and helped the man steady himself. He was supposed to be protective.

The two men had gone to New York and got married only a few months ago,and at the time Ryan had never seen Horatio so happy. But now,Horatio was struggling to make it through the day.

He knew as soon as he swallowed the vitamins,he'd brighten up.

Horatio sat at his desk in his office,trying not to move too much,which wasn't hard considering what he was doing was paperwork.

There was a knock on the door,and Horatio looked up and saw Frank come in with a stack of papers.

''Ugh...More?''Horatio whined,''I'm already a week behind.''

''Well if you can talk all the killers in Miami into not killing for a week,then you can catch up,''Frank replied chuckling.

Horatio groaned in defiance as the stack landed in his desk.

''At least you've got half that work done,''Frank implied.

''Mm.'' Horatio took a sip of water from a water-bottle and swallowed,only to lean over towards his trash can and puke it back up moments later.

''What the hell?''Frank asked,''Isn't that just water?''

Horatio regained his breath and nodded. He took another sip and this time swallowed a vitamin with it. Frank waited for the vomiting,but it didn't come.

''I only puke if I eat,or drink water alone.''

''So how are you living? Not eating can lead to a blood sugar crash.''

''I'm surviving on vitamins,Frank. I'm not happy about it,but I'm stuck with it for the moment.''

''I'f you want,I can drive you to the doctor's after work.''

''I'm working late,tonight. I can't.''

''The hell you are. I'm dragging you out of here at 5. If I have to knock you out,so be it.''

''Fine,I'll go,''Horatio grumbled in agreement.

At five o'clock,Horatio got up from his desk and headed towards the elevator.

''Hey,where are you going?''Eric asked when he saw the man leaving.

''Doctor,''Horatio muttered in annoyance.

''Frank must have gotten him to go,''Ryan sighed in relief when Eric came into DNA.

Eric looked at Ryan confused. ''What,you couldn't?''

''Nope,not even with the authority of the wedding ring,I couldn't get him to go.''

''Wedding ring?!'' Eric grabbed Ryan's hand.

''Yes,Eric. Now let go of my hand.''

The Cuban examined the two rings on Ryan's finger. One was clearly the engagement ring,as it was made of silver,and the other was made of gold and had more shine to it.

''Since when did you two get engaged,let alone married?''

''Don't worry about it. Now let go!'' Ryan yanked his hand free and went back to work.

At the doctor's office,Frank was doing his best to hold Horatio down as the redhead was overdue for a few shots and he had a fear of needles.

Horatio thrashed in Frank's grip as the doctor managed to jam the needle into his arm.

Horatio pulled free as soon as the needle was removed.

''Anything else overdue?''he asked annoyed.

''Nope,you're done. Now,why are you here?''

Horatio told Frank to leave the room.

''I've been puking up everything I eat for the last three weeks. I'm living on vitamins.''

''Well,you sat still for the first few needles,so-'' ''What does that have to do with anything?''Horatio demanded.

''The first few needles were for blood work. We'll see what we get for results and call you. Now,when you say everything,do you actually mean everything?''

''Everything but the vitamins.'' ''Even the water?''

Horatio grumbled and took a sip of water from his water bottle,and sure enough,like clockwork,he puked it back up into the garbage can a few minutes later.

The doctor sighed and added it to the report. ''Alright,you'll be getting a phone call tonight around eight.''

''That's fine. Call my cellphone,though. I'll be working late.'' With that,Horatio stalked out of the office.

Please review! I'm currently working on chapter 2,don't worry! :)
