summary: home didn’t carry the same meaning to Spencer anymore, not since he had met you.
Spencer can’t really place a word for what he is currently feeling right now; being in the prison definitely wore him down and changed him mentally, emotionally and physically but now that he is finally being released from prison, he just can’t seem to put a name to his feelings. This had been something he had been looking forward to – Spencer knew his team will never let him down nor will they ever let him stay in prison – and even though there were times when he had almost given up and lost all of his hopes, Spencer couldn’t at all.
His hands are shaking with nervous excitement the closer he is to the door and his heart is racing against his chest. He could hear his heart beating in his ears and suddenly, Spencer feels sick.
JJ had obviously been extremely happy to the point of crying. Alvez – Luke – had been there with her too when Spencer had been taken to that room. JJ told him they are bringing him home but… Spencer’s breath hitches. For a while now, Spencer hasn’t thought of his own apartment as ‘home’. No, home is where youare, and Spencer is scared.
The moment the guards open the door and his eyes land on Garcia, Spencer rushes to her, wrapping his arms tightly around her body. Garcia hugs him back just as tighter and he can feel the tears welling up in his eyes once more – Spencer had already shed a few earlier when JJ had broken the news to him.
“Is… Is Y/N here?” Spencer slowly pulls back, and Garcia blinks a few times, wiping the stray tears that fell down her cheeks and she stares at Spencer for a few seconds before nodding her head and Spencer is washed with relief.
The moment Spencer hears your voice, he pulls away from Garcia and stares at you. His hands start to tremble, and his heart starts to race. You are standing a few feet away from Garcia and him and despite the tears running down your face, your red nose and puffy eyes, you still look breathtaking to Spencer and he scans your face as if starved for the sight of you – he actually is; Spencer had refused your visits quite a lot of times on account of not wanting you to see him at one of his lowest points – and he hesitates slightly.
“Y/N.” His voice trembles with emotion and upon hearing your name leaving his mouth, you immediately rush up to Spencer and he meets you in the middle, wrapping his arms around your body tightly. Spencer presses his face to your hair, inhaling your scent; he has always taken you for granted and being deprived of your presence throughout the entire he had been in the prison had been torture but this right now – this is his home. Right here, right now – with you. “Thank you.” His voice cracks as the tears he had been trying to hold back finally streaks down his cheeks. The two of you just stood there, hugging each other, crying.
JJ approaches Garcia and wraps an arm around her as the two of them stood by Spencer’s side, looking at the two of you.
Your voice is slightly hoarse, and Spencer pulls back when you lift your head at his whispered words. His lips quirk slightly, and he wipes his tears away before wiping away your tears with his thumbs. “For the hug, the comfort – understanding. Mostly, just for being here for me.” He tips your head back and lowers his face, pausing slightly – your mouth and his only a breath apart and when your eyes met, your eyes flutter close as his mouth touch yours in a soft, brushing kiss.
You kiss him back, once, twice and then Spencer deepens the kiss, his mouth opening wider as his tongue strokes across your bottom lip. Your lips part and met his searching kiss with your own, digging your fingers into the soft fabric of his shirt at his back and Spencer cups your head with one hand while he uses the other to pull you flush against him. The kiss quickly escalated from delicate reconciliation to ravenous need until Spencer finally drew back and takes a deep breath. He tries to stifle his smile, he really did but he couldn’t because Spencer is feeling extremely happy to have you with him once again and judging from the look and emotion on your face, Spencer knows you feel the same too.
“Let’s get your mom back, Spence.”
