Spencer Reid x Reader
contains angst + a tiny bit of fluff at the end.
hey guys. so, orignally i wrote this for myself because it’s taken from a personal place but i decided to share it, and i used y/n because i thought it’d be more enjoyable for you guys to read if it’s reid x reader ahaha. sorry if this is all over the place. it’s kinda based off of Won’t Go Home Without You by Maroon 5. (the song, not the video!)
Okay! update i really like this and decided to use it for Hannah’s Classic Criminal Minds Quote Challenge. @hanny-bananny
“Don’t make me smack you in front of all these people.”
Spencer stared blankly at his front door, the door that she’d just walked out of and shut lightly behind her. There was no fight or misunderstanding that lead to their break up, Y/n just decided she didn’t want him anymore and left. She left him like it didn’t matter, like they were never in love, like her feelings were never real. But that was the problem— they were the realest emotions she’d ever felt for anyone. And in the end, it did more harm to her than good.
She couldn’t let herself be happy with anyone. When she felt herself start to fall deeper in love with a partner, she’d sabotage and ruin it before it ever began. It was as if there was an invisible limit she had where she’d hit it and think, ‘okay, it’s over now.’ And by the time her heart could process what her mind was making her do, she’d find herself alone again.
