August Air Ch.4  
 Title: August Air

Pairings: None . . . yet.

Characters: Ryan Wolfe, Delilia Wolfe(original character), Maxine Valera, Calleigh Duqense, Eric Delko.

Rating: G

Disclaimer: Nothing reconizable belongs to me. It all belongs to the respected owners, I am merely playing around with the characters. I do, however, own Delilia, or Lily as we'll call her for now.

Summary: Ryan helped out a close friend almost three years ago, which left him alone, and with a daughter. The CSI team has no idea about what Ryan's daughter. How will they react when they find out about 'Papa Ryan'?

Notes: Thank you for all your reviews! You guys rock! And again, 'flashbacks' are in italics.

Soft rays of the sun hit through the window. Olivia smiled serenely as she walked through her studio. She sat down slowly, careful of her already big bump. Her bright green eyes sparkled as she spotted a clean canvas. Olivia picked up a pencil, but no inspiration came to her. That is when she heard her front door.

She got up with some ease, touching various things in her home as she headed for the door. Her blonde hair flowed down her back, and bounced with each step she took. When she finally got to her door, she breathed in the scent of flowers, daisies, sitting on a nearby table, before opening the door, a wide smile on her face.

Ryan stood in front of her, a large bag in his hand. Olivia smiled wider, ushering him in.

Ryan! Hi, how are you?”

He chuckled softly, giving her a hug.

I could ask you the same thing. How’s junior doing?” He asked.

Olivia rolled her eyes and took the bag from Ryan’s hands in curiosity.

“’Junior’ is just fine Ryan. You know he or she does have a name.”

Ryan rolled his eyes as well. They walked into Olivia’s studio together wistfully.

Oh yeah, your little hippy names. You know, why can’t anything ever be normal with you?” He asked with humor.

She playfully slapped his chest as they reached the blank canvas. Olivia set the bag Ryan had brought with him on the bare floor, and set herself on her stool.

Because nothing would be extraordinary if it was normal, Ryan.”

Ryan smiled fondly at her as she picked up a pencil.

How are you doing, Liv, really?” He asked then, his face serious.

Olivia lowered her head, and closed her eyes.

I’m better. Really, Ryan. It isn’t as bad as last week.”

Ryan nodded, turning his head away from her. They sat in silence for a while before Olivia finally spoke once more.

So, what’s in the bag?”

Ryan smirked, grabbing the bag and opening it.

My friend from work, Eric, he has a niece and apparently it was her birthday. Well, he pulled a three nighter and then decided to get her gift. He bought two of these.” Ryan paused, a smile on his face, and pulled out a large teddy bear. “I told him my brother had a kid I could give it to. I figure when Junior is old enough you could give it to him or her.”

Olivia smiled brightly at Ryan, taking the bear and inspecting it in admiration.

Aw, he’s beautiful Ryan!”

Olivia gingerly set the bear down next to her and turned to Ryan, a more serious look on her face.

Why haven’t you told any of your friends about me, or the baby, Ryan?”

He looked away and sighed.

Olivia, this is your baby. I mean, why would I tell them about you or the baby if I’m not even going to be a part of the kid’s life? And what if you don’t…what if you don’t make it through this? What then Liv?”

You think I’m going to die. You think this baby is going to die.”

I just want to be prepared for the worst Olivia.”

She looked at him then, a stern look on her face.

You can’t always expect the worst Ryan. Sometimes – sometimes it’s good.”

Ryan looked away from her, pulling his hands over his face.

Yeah.”

Olivia bit her lip, turning back to her canvas; she still didn’t know what to draw.

Ryan. Give me something to draw.”

He looked up, a small smile on his face, glad that the negative conversation was over.

I don’t know…strawberries?”

Olivia turned to him, made a face and turned back.

Ew, no. Strawberries are bad. Just, bad.”

What? Why? That’s ridiculous Olivia.” He said in laughter.

Hey, don’t question my dislike for strawberries Ryan. They give me a bad vibe, and I don’t ignore my bad vibes.”

Ryan had never, not once, given Lily strawberries. Maybe, just maybe, it was because of Olivia’s so called bad vibe. Ryan wasn’t sure, but he never, not once in his life, given his daughter strawberries.

He sat in Valera’s car, Lily in his lap, and sighed. He couldn’t lose Lily; it was hard enough to lose Olivia. He could not, he would not, lose his daughter.

Ryan looked across from him briefly, eyeing Valera, who was concentrated solely on the road. She was determined; Ryan could give her that, to get Ryan and Lily to the nearest hospital within ten minutes. Ryan watched as she bit her lip, thinking it was the same way Olivia used to.

“I meant to tell you, all of you guys, you know.” He said, as he went back to looking at his daughter.

“I would certainly hope so.” She responded, her voice strong and smooth.

Ryan sighed, running his fingers through Lily’s locks.

“Look, I’m sorry Valera. Okay? I’m sorry I never told you about Lily.”

Valera rolled her eyes, making a sharp turn.

“I’m not mad at you Ryan. I expect Calleigh to be, maybe Alexx. But me? Nah, I’m not mad at you.”

He narrowed his eyes, wincing as she made yet another sharp turn.

“Well you certainly sound mad. Listen Valera – “

“No, you listen. Ryan, I’m not mad. I’m hurt. I thought we were friends, I thought friends tell each other important things like having a kid!”

“I – “

“But you know what? It’s fine. I mean if you wanted to tell me then you would have, right? It could have come up in any conversation, right?”

“Well, yeah but – “

“But hey, if you didn’t want me to know then I’m okay with that. I just hope that I can return the favor. ‘Cause I mean, when I told you my parents were coming up and I wanted to hang myself, I’m sure you didn’t care. Because hey, we aren’t even good friends, right? Because good friends tell each other important things, Ryan.”

“Okay, I get it – “

“Now, I am mad Ryan. I don’t want to hear what you have to say. All I want right now is for this ass to get out of my lane so I can get your secret daughter to the damn hospital and so I can leave you there with her and go get myself a goddamn drink!”

Ryan widened his eyes as Valera accelerated, turning the car sideways, and passing the offending car. He gripped his seat and Lily as she speedup even more.

“Um, Valera – “

“I don’t want to hear it Ryan! Can’t you see I’m trying to get your kid to a hospital?!”

“Yes, Valera, I can see that, but don’t you think – “

“No, Ryan, I don’t think! And I would appreciate it you didn’t either!”

Ryan shut his eyes tight, clutching his daughter closer to him as the car sped faster and faster. Finally, when it came to an abrupt stop, Ryan thought she’d finally managed to kill them all…that is, until she opened his car door and took his daughter from him. Ryan opened his eyes, seeing that they were not all dead and in the pearly gates, but in the hospital’s parking lot. He got out quickly, spotting Valera running with Lily in her arms toward the entrance.

As Ryan caught up with Valera, seeing her approach a doctor, he thought, no, he knew, he was never driving with Maxine Valera ever again.

I like pissed!Valera, I think!

And I'd expect that to be the reaction to finding out that one of your best friends had a kid that they never bothered telling you about.

Nice job, as usual.
