Walking through the glass doors of the BAU, as you do every morning, you scan the room for the face of the wonderful Emily Prentiss. You made eye contact with her as she looked up from her computer.
You see, ever since you joined the team, everyone thought that you would be interested in Morgan, because of your naturally flirty attitude. But what you failed to tell them was, that as soon as you set your eyes on Prentiss, the fierce, gorgeous brunette, you couldn’t feel attraction to anybody but her. Your bisexuality was common knowledge, however, Emily was much more secretive, and you never knew whether she wanted you in the same way you wanted her.
‘Y/N, coffee.’ You heard a voice shouting behind you and you turned around. You saw your best friend, Spencer Reid, walking towards you with two cups of coffee.
‘That’s my boy!’ You grinned and threw your arms around your neck, kissing him on the cheek.
You glanced back to look at Prentiss, and saw that she was glaring at the pair of you. She shot you a stern look and turned back to her paperwork.
A while later, you bounded up to Emily. ‘Do you want some coffee, Em?’
‘No, Y/N.’ She replied with a cold expression.
For the rest of the day, Prentiss looked at you as if you had killed a puppy. Exhausted from wondering what you had possibly done wrong, you decide to visit the Oracle of All Answers and Knowledge, Penelope Garcia.
You grabbed Spencer by his sweater and led him down the hallway. Penelope and Spencer were fully aware of your love for Prentiss, as they had spent many nights listening to you ramble about her beauty. You swung open the door and plopped yourself down into a chair, while Spencer leant on the wall.
‘Hello my babies, what can I do for you?’ Penelope said as she turned to face you.
‘Pen, why is Emily acting like she hates me? She has been weird all week but today she is constantly avoiding me, and when she makes eye contact all I am getting is death glares.’
Penelope looked puzzled. ‘What was she like last week?’
‘Fine, friendly, not looking like she wanted to punch me all the time.’ You placed your head in your hands and sighed.
‘Wait,’ Spencer piped up. ‘It started after when we all went out on Friday, and you were paralytic drunk so I had to take you back to mine in a cab?’
‘Do you think she is jealous?’ Penelope gasped.
‘No, no, no. That’s impossible. She must know that Spencer and I are just friends! Does this mean that she likes me too?’ You said, gobsmacked.
Penelope smirked. ‘Well, my child, leave it up to me. Auntie Penelope will provide the answers you seek.’
Suddenly the door swung open and Hotch appeared at the door.
‘We have a case. It’s in Miami. Wheels up in 30.’
After the jet landed, the team went to check into a nearby hotel and sat in the lobby, waiting for Hotch to organize the accommodation. You made a conscious effort to avoid clinging on to Spencer, so Emily wouldn’t get the wrong picture.
‘There is only 4 rooms, guys. Some of you will have to share.’ Hotch said, walking towards the group. Goddamn Penelope Garcia and her inability to book the correct number of rooms.
‘JJ, I need to share with you. I have some… case details I need to go over.’ Spencer said, awkwardly grabbing JJ by the wrist. As they turned to walk away from the team, the Spencer glanced back at you and smiled.
‘Well I will be having my own room, so Morgan and Rossi- you share. And the Y/N and Prentiss.’ Hotch said as he handed out keys.
Emily put her head in her hands.
‘Oh, come on, you have to be kidding? Literally, anyone else but you.’ She complained.
‘Charming.’ You replied, taking the keys from her and leading the way.
As you reached the room, you threw your bags down and saw that there was in fact, only one double bed.
‘For fuck’s sake!’ Emily shouted. ‘I’m going to take a shower.’
She quickly moved into the bathroom, while you unpacked and changed into some shorts and a t shirt. You then heard some muffled noises coming from outside the door. You walked over and opened it slightly, sighing when you were greeted by the faces of Morgan and Rossi.
Rossi thrust a bottle of fancy Italian wine into your hands, and placed a kiss on top of your forehead while Morgan looked on with a shit-eating grin.
‘Good luck, bella.’ Rossi murmured into your hair.
You were left stood there in disbelief as the pair turned and walked away. You didn’t know whether you were going to kiss or kill Penelope Garcia for this. Turning back into the room and closing the door, you heard the shower switch off.
You took in a deep breath, and positioned yourself on the bed with the bottle of wine, determined to get some answers. Emily appears from the door in her pyjamas, her wet hair dripping down onto her sweater.
‘I have some wine. We should talk?’ You asked, hopeful.
‘Go and take it to Spencer, I’m sure he would love some.’ She replied sarcastically, not looking at you.
‘What the fuck, Prentiss. What have I done wrong?’ You sighed, standing up to face her and placing the bottle down. Emily stopped brushing her hair and sat on the bed, avoiding eye contact.
‘I can see you and Spencer are happy, okay? And it does hurt, seeing you together. So just please let me fucking move on and stop shoving it in my face every three seconds.’ She said.
‘Emily are you nuts?’ You laughed. ‘I am not in a relationship Spencer! He is my best friend yes, but I am NOT in love with him. The only reason I’ve been spending so much time with Spencer because you have been acting like I am diseased! Do you realize how much it hurts when you can’t even bare to look at me? It breaks my heart, Em, considering that you’re the person I want to spend 24 hours a day with.’
‘Wait, so you aren’t with Spencer?’ Emily asked, her eyes firmly fixed on the floor. You sighed and kneeled in front of her, turning her face so that she would look at you.
‘Emily Prentiss, I want you. All day, every day. And I am not letting you move on from me, whether you like it or not. I have fallen for your strength, your beauty, your fierce character, your honesty- even your stubbornness. I want it all. Honestly, Em, I don’t see what anyone can see in anyone else but you.’
You can see a tear roll down her cheek, and you use your thumb to brush it away.
‘I want you so fucking badly, Y/N. And it completely terrifies me.’ She said, standing and pulling you up with her. You placed your hands on either side of her face, and tucked a piece of hair behind her ear.
‘I’m all yours.’ You whispered, as your lips crashed together and you fell backwards onto the bed.
The next day, you walked into the lobby, hands clasped with the woman you loved, surrounded by the cheers of your makeshift BAU family.
