Of Mothers and Children - First date

Tittle: Of Mothers and Children - First date
Author: storm_8
Fandom: CSI
Pairing: Sara/Sofia
Raiting: PG
Spoilers: None
Disclaimer: Ha! Obviously I don't own any of these characters except the original one's...
A/N: Not betaed, so all mistakes are mine.

Holidays have finally arrived: the weather is crap, I really should be revising for an exam on the first day back, but I felt like writing another one of these.

Let me know whether you like it, think it's weird, think it could be better... You know... Comment!!

Sofia knew she was breaking the speed limit, but she had to get home or she was going to miss her daughter leaving for her first date – even though Alex claimed it was nothing of the sort. All week, the girl had been growling at her every time she commented on the matter, but the blonde knew better – her eldest daughter was going on a date and so help her if the Undersheriff’s last minute visit made her late.

Five minutes later, the squealing of tires and a police siren could be heard from the Sidle-Curtis household. Sara raised an eyebrow and looked up from the newspaper she had been reading. Less than a minute later the front door burst open and in came an out of breath, haggard looking detective. JJ poked his head around his brunette mother to see what all the commotion was about.

“Has she left yet?” the blonde asked, looking around the almost empty living room and ignoring the brunette’s amused grin.

“Sofia. Alex has told you a thousand times it’s not a date. They’re just going to the movies. They’ve done that several times before in the past.” Sara’s statement was completely ignored, as her wife proceeded down the hall. The CSI’s grin only widened when she heard a muttered ‘Not a date, my ass.’

Then a loud shout came from the bathroom followed by an even louder ‘MOM!!’. Sara rolled her eyes and went back to her newspaper.

Sofia had been going through Tommy’s history homework when the doorbell rang. JJ jumped from his spot on the couch next to his brunette mother and dashed to open the door. He smiled big and stretched his arms up when he saw Jennifer standing there. “Hi, Jen!”

The girl smiled back at the four year old and, picking him up, walked inside. “Hi, JJ.” She waved at Alex’s mothers “Hi Ms. Curtis, hi Ms. Sidle.”

“Jen, how are you?” Sara asked, setting the newspaper on the coffee table and stretching out her legs.

“Too much school work, but otherwise I’m good.” The girl answered as she set James Junior on the ground again.

“Alex keeps complaining about that as well.” Sofia added to the conversation “Speaking of her…” She turned towards the hall and shouted “Alex! Jen’s here!”

“It’s alright, actually. I’m a bit early.” Jennifer said, but then grinned when her friend sassed back from her room down the hall.

“If you hadn’t interrupted my shower, mom, I wouldn’t be late! It’s your fault!”

Before her wife could say something about dates and keeping women waiting (she just knew Sofia was going to say something if her evil smirk was any indication), Sara inquired about the movie the teens we’re planning on watching.

“Oh, we haven’t really decided yet. It’s a toss up between action and comedy.” The girl replied as she sat down on the couch next to Jill, who was completely focused on The Simpsons on TV.

“You look very pretty, Jen.” JJ said, pulling on the girl’s jacket sleeve.

Sara blinked at her son’s comment and then groaned inwardly when she noticed her wife’s smirk.

The girl in question blushed an interesting shade of pink and patted the boy on the head “Thank you, JJ.” He just gave another big grin and returned to his brunette mother’s side on the couch.

Of course, Sofia couldn’t let the opportunity pass up and threw in her two cents: “JJ is right, Jen, you look good. Planning on turning many heads at the mall, humm? Or maybe just one specific head?”

The CSI grabbed her newspaper and swatted her blonde wife on the head with it, while Jennifer’s blush only intensified.

When 15 minutes had passed without Alex coming out of her room, Sofia left the living room and knocked on her daughter’s bedroom door. “Alex? You in there? You don’t want to keep Jen waiting, especially on your first da-” She was interrupted rather abruptly, when the door opened and she was pulled inside.

Mom!” the tomboy hissed and then punched the blonde on the shoulder when she saw the cheeky smile on her mother’s face. The brunette rolled her eyes and went back to her closet mirror to finish with her hair and grab her jacket.

When the detective didn’t say anything else, Alex turned to find her still by the door, staring at her oddly. “What?” she asked defensively.

Sofia was a bit stunned, as she took in her daughter dressed in black jeans, white button-down shirt and navy blue sleeveless sweater. “You look…” she paused, searching for the right word “… handsome, Alex.”

The tomboy coloured slightly and turned back to the mirror to look at her reflection. Straightening out her cuffs, she looked up when her blonde mother stepped up behind her and set her hands on her shoulders.

“You do look really handsome.” The detective said, smiling gently. When the tomboy looked down at her shoes, Sofia didn’t miss the uncertain look that had crossed her features. “Hey.” She turned the girl around and put a hand under her chin, encouraging her to meet her gaze. “What’s the matter?”

“I… Do you think that…” Alex started in an uncertain voice and then gave up when she couldn’t put her feelings into words.

“You really are your mother’s daughter, huh?” Sofia asked, amusement in her voice. The tomboy looked up at that. “Before our first date, your mother was so nervous, she changed outfits half a dozen times and then she forgot her keys at home. I had to pick her lock when we got back.” The girl let out a chuckle and Sofia grinned. “But if you ask her, she’ll tell you she didn’t have any reason to be worried because she realised I was as nervous as she was. Just be yourself and you’ll be fine. Heaven knows you’ve got your mother’s smile and that is what got me right from the beginning.”

Alex smiled her gap-toothed smile and hugged her blonde mother “Thanks, mom.”

Sensing that the girl would be okay, Sofia went back to her playful and cocky self. “So, this outing is a date. As I’ve been saying right from the start.”

All the living room occupants turned to look down the hall, when they heard Alex yell ‘MOM!! Would you stop it??!!’ and Sofia ducking out of the room grinning wickedly.

Muttering and glaring at the blonde woman, the tomboy slammed shut the door to her room and stomped into the living room, only to stop dead in her tracks when her gaze landed on Jen. Her friend had left her hair loose and was wearing a top under her jacket that showed more skin and curves than Alex was used too. The girls promptly blushed and glanced away.

Trying not to giggle at the scene, Sofia glanced over to Sara, who was still staring at their eldest daughter. “Alright!” she said loudly, breaking the silence and snapping everyone out of their dazes “Now that Alex is ready, you girls go and enjoy yourselves. Call when you’re done and I’ll come pick you up.”

Clearing her throat, Alex moved further into the living room. “Hey, Jen.” She smiled then and Jennifer couldn’t help but reply in kind, despite the butterflies in her stomach. She got up and after only a moment’s hesitation, the girls left the house waving their goodbyes.

The silence that descended was broken by James Junior asking very innocently: “Are they going to kiss?”, which made Sara groan and Sofia laugh.

I'm glad as well that this came out so nicely. I was worried all the college stress had chased away the muse.
Sofia is so much fun to write!
I'll try and have the date ready soon!

Thanks for reading!

This is so cute... I have to really love both Sara's and Sofia's reactions xD and JJ comments are... just great.

I figured Sara and Sofia would be impressed by Alex dressing up for the date. And JJ is just perfect for "innocently" commenting on everything.

Thanks for commenting!

I'm so happy you still enjoy these. I was getting worried people would give up on them (even though it seems that only the same group of people keep coming back to it...)

Next should be the date! let's see if the muse cooperates...!

Thank you!
It makes me very happy that people enjoy these fics.
Sara and Sofia are also my favourite couple and I have been thinking about writing about their first date as well. So, you'll have to wait and see...

Thanks again for reading and commenting!!

Thanks for the great fics
I've been enjoying these fics, too. Sorry I haven't commented sooner. Please keep writing. Looking forward to the Alex and Jen's first date and to Sarah and Sofia's (if you decide to write it).

Re: Thanks for the great fics
Thanks for commenting and I'm glad you've been enjoying them.
Alex and Jen's first date will be written, but I'm currently working on Sara and Sofia's (we'll see if it works out - the muse is being a bit picky with it...)

Thanks for taking the time to comment!
