Greg looked like he was trying to be happy for him. He wasn't exactly sure why because he knew he spent most of his time pulling the younger man up, pushing him because he could see potential there. Behind the exterior that usually put people off and lead them to assume he was a slacker or was slipshod, he had discovered that Greg really did have something rare.

"Worried? Griss we haven't spoken since we got back," Greg said and was embarrassed to hear his voice crack totally unbidden. "I get why, that's not a problem... and I'm guess you're calling to tell me what I already know. If you're waiting to come back to CSI because I'm there, you don't have to worry anymore. I'm not there right now." Not until he got a clean bill of health, physical and mental -- which would be never at this rate.
