"Maia?" Maurice Boscorelli walked into the apartment after his shift at work. Carrying a large brown paper bag with groceries, he removed the key from the door and closed it behind him. "Maia? Where are you?" Bosco looked around the apartment setting the groceries down on the kitchen table along with his keys. Looking around the corner he glanced into the bedroom where Maia is lying on the bed watching the television. "There you are, why didn't you answer me?"
"Hey," Maia Danforth lay comfortably tucked underneath the sheets not looking up at Maurice at the bedroom door. Taking off his jacket, he hung it up on the back of the door and sat on the bed beside her.
"Hey baby," kissing her cheek, she didn't respond. "And baby," removing the sheets he kissed her pregnant stomach. She brushed him off and covered her stomach back up.
"What's wrong?" taking off his shirt, Bosco threw it in the closet.
"You were supposed to be home two hours ago Mo." Maia fixed her hair and grabbed the remote shutting the television off.
"I had some things to do, you know, tie up some loose ends," trying to kiss her again she turned her head away. "What's the matter with you Maia, is it the baby?" Getting up he stripped down to his underwear and threw his belt and jeans into the closet. Closing the closet door, he sat back down in the bed, joining Maia under the covers.
"She was moving around a lot today, I could barely get any rest."
"Yeah?" Bosco smiled, "Damn, I missed it again."
"Yeah, you missed it again Mo," Maia turned back to face Bosco. "You know you're never here anymore, I hardly ever see you."
"Honey, I'm a police officer, I'm out in the field, my hours are not always set, you know that," Bosco stressed.
"I just feel like I'm going through this whole thing alone," tears began to well up in her eyes.
"Sweetheart, you're not alone," he kissed her forehead, "you'll never be alone, I'll be here for you." Maia burrowed her head into Bosco's chest and closes her eyes.
"I just miss you Maurice, we both do," Maia took a deep breath and closed her eyes as Bosco stroked her hair.
"I miss you too baby; I wish I could be here for you more," Bosco kissed the top of her head resting his chin on it. "I love you baby," Bosco kissed her head again, wrapping his arms around her. Bosco sat awake with Maia in his arms until she fell asleep. He watched her a bit longer before he allowed himself to fall asleep with her still in his arms.

LouiseJ2: I enjoyed the detail you went into with regards to the case. It made the UNSUB appear believable. The crisis in the middle of the story was my favorite part, very dramatic but not over the top.
