Fanfic: Untitled!  
This is the first fic I've written in possibly more than a year, and the first for Holby. And, it's not that long! Regardless, I blame xcarlie_x for its existence!!! It's Sam/Connie, set directly after the Christmas Special, and has no title yet. I'm open to suggestions!!

xcarlie_x, I hope you like it!


December 24th, 0400 GMT, Somewhere over the Atlantic

"You're going to miss her, aren't you?"

Sam turned his attention to his son, a question in his expression.

"You're lost in your own world, and it's obvious who you're thinking about. I saw you kiss her."

Remembering what Maria had said, that Kieron could never know, Sam couldn't quite hide the panicked expression.

"It's okay!" Kieron continued. "I understand, she's Grace's mom. But I didn't realise you two were-"

"We... I... We weren't. Aren't," Sam cut in. Relief that Kieron hadn't seen him with Maria warred with his realisation of only half an hour ago that it wasn't Maria's goodbye that was haunting him. "Connie and I didn't have that kind of relationship."

"Are you sure about that? It was her you were thinking about, right?"

Sam was glad he could be honest with his answer. "Yes."

"So why-"

"I never told you how Grace happened, did I?"

"I assumed it was the normal way," Kieron grinned and winked at his father.

"Okay there are some conversations a man shouldn't have with his son."

"Sorry, dad. Go on."

"It was... to be honest I don't know what it was. I know Connie wanted a child, so I don't think Grace was a complete accident, but even she couldn't have planned exactly what happened with us. But that's not the point I guess... We weren't together as such, and we were never friends either, not back then. That came later, much later. I didn't see that one coming either."

"Dad, you're not making much sense."

"I don't think there's much sense to be made."

"But you'll miss her."

"I told her I'd miss her."

"That's good, right?"

"I didn't expect her to look that way."

"Which way?"

"Stunning, as usual. But... hurt." Sam dropped Kieron's gaze, staring down into his own lap. "She was fighting back tears. I can count the number of times I've seen Connie cry on one hand."

"And what, you thought she'd be glad to see the back of you?"

Sam looked back up. "Maybe I thought I'd be glad to see the back of her." Kieron looked confused. "Friends or not, she always found a way to make my life 'interesting'."

"I think maybe you liked interesting more than you realised," Kieron stated, and Sam had to admit to himself that he was probably right. "Call her, when we land. Make it about Grace if you have to, but talk to her."

"Kieron..."

"Call her. Then I'll do the concert, we'll meet up with my mom, and maybe they can come out for New Year."

"Kieron, I don't think-"

"And then maybe you can go back with them. I'm old enough to look after myself, and I can come over every holiday I get. Grace isn't even two years old, and if she has even a chance of two parents, together... She's my sister, I want that for her."

"You didn't even meet her."

"A perfect reason for you to get Connie to bring her out." Sam remained silent. "If you're worried about what she'll say, I think she'll be glad to hear from you."

"You didn't meet Connie either."

"No, but I saw her after you walked away. She looked just like you did five minutes ago."

Sam's only answer was to look questioningly at his son, and wonder if that sudden spark inside of him was something he wanted to name.

December 24th, 0600 GMT, Beauchamp Residence

Connie's restless night was interrupted by the shrill ringing of the telephone. Wondering who could be phoning her this early, and cursing them for almost certainly waking Grace in the process, she wrestled her way out of her duvet to reach for the phone.

"Connie Beauchamp," she answered, injecting as much of her work persona into her voice as she could thirty seconds after waking up.

"Connie? It's me..."

Connie smiled.
