Halloween Season / Spencer Reid x Reader
“Babygirl…it’s not even October yet,” Morgan commented as he stepped foot into your apartment. Penelope stood behind him with a bottle of red wine in her hands, a large grin on her face as she took in your decorations.
Pumpkins were set on every free space, skeletons hung on the walls and light up bats hung from the ceiling. Penelope let out a shriek followed by a delighted laugh as a small skeleton besides her began to move, the motion sensor setting it off into a wild dance.
“Halloween starts in September. Everyone knows that,” you replied with a smile as you took the bottle of wine from Penelope. The pair made themselves at home, taking a seat on your couch while Morgan picked up a pillow shaped as a jack-o-lantern.
“Babe, I don’t think I can get this untangled so maybe you should just buy another-,” Spencer stopped mid sentence as he reemerged from your hallway’s closet and into the living room, surprised to see that his friends had arrived early. “Hey guys.”
Morgan grinned at the fact he had actually heard the word “babe” come out of Spencer’s mouth. Realizing that Spencer Reid was just as invested in relationships as everyone else was amusing for some reason.
“Why am I not surprised that you had something to do with this?” Morgan laughed as he noticed the fake tangled spider web in Spencer’s hands. Reid was always excited for Halloween. For years he would organize Halloween movie marathons and trips to the pumpkin patch that they would all happily attend to if only to entertain Spencer’s love for the holiday.
“Actually, I was already set up before he got here,” you interrupted, “he’s just trying to fix that last decoration but it seems to be a lost cause.”
Spencer’s eyes lit up as you gave his cheek a loud kiss, your affection for him no secret to the world. The feeling of your slightly chapped lips against his skin was gladly received.
“I love your apartment,” Penelope complimented brightly. “It’s so festive!”
Spencer felt his heart jump at the smile that crossed your face at that moment. He watched as you interacted with two of his closest friends, your hair slightly disheveled and your shirt a little wrinkled with a faded Halloween print from the frequency you wore and washed it. Somehow he had managed to find someone who made his heart skip a beat, who made his stomach burst with butterflies and who invaded his thoughts every day. And luckily for him, you shared the same love for his favorite holiday.
“Are you guys ready to watch the movies? Y/N and I rented some old classics,” Spencer said as he held up a few DVD boxes.
“I’ll make popcorn!” you exclaimed excitedly. You had been thrilled when Spencer had suggested a movie night with his friends. You had met them once before and immediately taken a liking to them.
“I’ll come with!” Penelope shouted as she followed you into the kitchen, eager to bond more with the one who had managed to steal Reid’s heart.
Morgan chuckled as he watched the two disappear from sight. The apartment he found himself in was charming, and if it reflected your personality then it was no wonder Spencer couldn’t stop talking about you.
“She’s perfect for you,” Morgan commented as Spencer began to set up the tv.
“You think so?” he asked, a small smile tugging at his lips.
“Are you kidding? This might as well be your apartment. I can’t imagine what your future house will look like during Halloween,” Morgan laughed.
“Oh, we’ll definitely be doing haunted houses,” Spencer replied without missing a beat. Morgan grinned at the certainty in his voice.
“Well let me know if you need an extra vampire. I’m down to scare some kids.”
“Vampire? I always pegged you for more of a werewolf,” Spencer said with a teasing grin. Morgan laughed and shook his head.
“Just put the movie on, pretty boy.”
