Why Me? Part 3
here’s the third part of my series. enjoy my fine furry friends (:You jerked up your phone and called Hotch. Daniel Turner had to be your guy. You wished so badly that Spencer was there with you. If he were there, he would have figured everything out way before you did.
“(Y/N), are you okay?” you heard Penelope ask from the other room. You rubbed at your wrists and flicked around the rubber band that sat on it.
“Yeah. I’m fine, Pen.” you said, trying to hide your pain. When Hotch finally answered, you explained the situation, gave the work and home addresses, and any other helpful information you had on him. You hung up afterwards, not wanting to linger on the call for too long.
"Oh, (Y/N).” you heard Penelope groan in disappointment. You jumped up and ran into her room where she sat, at her computer, with her head in her hands. On her screen were thousands of pictures, articles, diagrams. All of Spencer.
"Daniel had apparently been planning to assassinate Spencer ever since Maeve’s case. He has plans, photos, everything ordered out. He was ready to wipe him out, whenever and wherever. He was waiting for the perfect time.” she said as her voice began to quiver. You felt your eyes begin to tear up. You quietly stood up and went to the bathroom to regain composure. You grabbed at the rubber band and began to vigorously flick it against your skin. It was all the relief you could get. It got out your anger, sadness, and frustration.
Your phone began to ring. It was Derek.
"Hello?” you said, voice shaking.
"Hey, pretty thing. We got Daniel. He was hiding out in his basement. There were bomb prototypes and plans of destruction, but I’ll tell you one thing. He is going to be behind bars for a long time. It’s over.” he said in a reassuringly. You let out a small cry. It was over.
"Thank you.” you said as you hung up.
You were so angry and hurt. Why would anyone do this? A text binged on your phone. It was from Emily. It said that her and JJ would be over in a little while for a ‘Girl’s Night In’. You didn’t want it. You wanted Spencer, but he was gone. You figured a little fun wouldn’t hurt. You got in the shower and cleaned off the grime that had been building up for days. You began to cry, hoping the shower would muffle the sound. You were in the shower for a long time, but most of it was spent crying.
When you got out, you felt new. As if a weight had been lifted off your shoulders. You slipped on some leggings and a big, lavender sweatshirt, which was Spencer’s favorite. You shed a small smile at the thought. Spencer loved the color purple. You fumbled at the rubber band again. Every thought about him stung your heart. The girls waltzed in at about 7pm with popcorn, soda, movies, fuzzy socks, nail polish, and makeup.
"I thought maybe we could have a little bit of fun tonight… almost like we’re teens again.” JJ said with a small laugh. You all curled up on the couch and watched some pretty decent movies, ate popcorn, drank soda, and did each other’s makeup and nails. It was a great time. They all ended up staying over, except for JJ because she had to get home to her kids.
When you woke up, Penelope had made breakfast and Emily was already sitting at the table eating. You checked your phone, one notification. It was from Hotch. He said that he needed to see you at the office at 9am and that there was something he needed to tell you. Your heart fell. You got a strange and excited feeling. What was he going to tell you?
