Title: The Ball
Pairing: Spencer Reid/Reader
Fandom: Criminal minds
You step out of the bedroom, your red ball dress fluttering around your feet. You look in the mirror in the hallway, your hair falling perfectly and your bright eyes shining with excitement.
Walking down the stairs you feel nervous, you’ve never been to a ball before but you know your going to have a great time with your friends.
As you step onto the bottom step, it gives its usual creak which makes your boyfriend of 2 years Spencer Reid turn around. His eyes go wide and his mouth goes a little slash as stands in his 3 piece of suit, staring at you.
“What do you think?” You ask, smoothing the dress over your stomach and then pat down your hair. Your feeling a little self conscious as your a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl and usually the team see you in pants and a shirt. A skirt when it’s something official.
You feel a little bit of unease when Spencer doesn’t reply straight away. He opens his mouth a little further but nothing seems to come out.
“Does this not like right?” You can hear the panic in your voice.
“No,” Spencer croaks before clearing his throne. “It’s, um. Not that”
Your confused, Spencer is never speechless. Actually, you tell yourself, he was once when Derek told him you liked him and after he understood Derek wasn’t pulling a prank on him.
“Well what is it?”
“You look,” Spencer starts, taking a step forward. “Amazing, fantastic, beautiful, wonderful, attractive, pleasing, alluring, decline.”
He pauses for breath and you hold your hand up. “Spencer! Babe!”
“Bewitching,” he whispers before grinning at you.
“Oh Spence,” you grin before taking a few steps forward and wrap your arms around him. He hugs you back. You lean back a little and press your lips against his.
When you pull back, you cup his face with your hands and stare into his eyes.
“You are amazing and so so sweet.”
He blushes and dips his head a little. “We better check Will and JJ aren’t here yet.”
You kiss him again before letting him go and watch him go to the window and check if your ride is here. You can’t help but grin when he turns and gives you a wink. Tonight is going to be fun.
