Spencer Reid-Criminal minds/NCIS Crossover
I was sat at my desk, talking to my boyfriend Spencer Reid and my best friend Penelope Garcia, who both worked with me at the FBI. “So, my two wonderful genius’. What’s it like living together?” Penelope asked Spence and I as she took a sip of her coffee for a pink coffee mug with a glittery unicorn on the side.
Spencer and I had been together for 2 and half years and over the last weekend We had moved in together. We had moved out of our small apartments and moved into a cute little house about a mile away from the BAU office. “It’s Great, every morning I get to wake up next to my amazingly beautiful girlfriend.” Spencer said as he reached over both his and my desk and taking my hand. I smiled widely at him before turning back to Penelope.
“It is amazing, I guess it will be something we would need to get used to. You know, we both have a set way we like things to be but I think we’re doing OK so far, right Spence?”
“Yeah we doing great.” He said smiling back at me. “We can’t wait for you guys to come round, how about this weekend, we could have dinner together.” Spence offered, getting a little louder towards the end so the rest of the team could hear, the group all nodded in agreement and we went back to talking and working until Hotch came over to my desk. “Y/N, Can we talk?” He asked motioning towards his office. I nodded and stood following my boss as he shouted back to Garcia telling her to get the rest of the team in the conference room.
We entered Hotch’s office and I took a seat at his desk. “What’s up?” I ask as he takes a seat behind his desk and pulls out a file.
“We got a case” he said handing my the file
“OK, and why are you telling me this in here?” I ask taking the file but not yet opening it. I read the name on the top and noticed it was my file. I looked up a Hotch confused before looking down at my file.
“Four navy officers found dead within a five block radius and an Agent Gibbs from NCIS called us in, asking for you and this team specifically.” I looked up at Hotch, both shock and fear evident on my face. Hearing that name brought back so many memories of my past. A past I hadn’t yet told most of my team about. “I want you to take the lead on this one. You know the NCIS team, how the investigation will go and how to handle the investigation because this case would be different to the usual cases” He continued watching me closely
“I’ll have to tell them the truth won’t I. I mean will I have to tell them all of it or…”
“Just tell them what they need to know.” Hotch interrupted before standing up and heading for the door. I followed after, a lump growing in my throat and tears filling my eyes. I had tried so hard to hide from my past for the three years that I’ve worked at the BAU. God the team are gonna hate me.
Hotch and I walked into the conference room and immediately Spencer noticed that there was something wrong but he saw me following Hotch so he kept seated.
“OK, we have a case in DC. But first there are somethings you need to know.” Hotch said before taking a seat and handing the teams attention to me.
“OK story time.” I said as I took a shaky breath. I heard Hotch whisper something to Spencer and a second later Spence was stood by me. I looked up at him and he gave me a reassuring smile and nodded. I took another breath before I looked back at the team and began.
“OK, as you know before I began working here I used to work at the university near by. But what you don’t know is before I worked there, I worked in DC for NCIS.” I explained, fighting back tears.
“My real, legal name is Y/F/N McGee. You all know that I was adopted as a baby. My adoptive parents changed my name to McGee but always told me about my birth mother so when I left NCIS after a horrible incident I wanted to start over. I have a brother but he never knew about my mum telling me about my birth mother so after a big argument with him I changed my name and the got a job at the university and here I am I also have a sister I still talk to her but she doesn’t know where I am and she doesn’t tell our brother we talk..” I said watching everyone to take in the unexpected info.
“What made you leave NCIS?” JJ asked. I shook my head and a felt a tear stream down my face and Spence wrapped me in his arms. “I’m sorry but I can’t tell you, not yet. I promise I will tell you when I need to or when I’m ready. I am sorry that I didn’t tell you guys but when I joined the BAU. The deal was I kept this to myself until I was ready to tell or if the team needed to know. I understand if you are mad at me for keeping this but please, don’t push me to tell you any more, I tried really hard to get over what happened and four years later it still haunts me so please respect this one request, I will tell you anything else you want to know but what happened to make me leave NCIS is to stay with me. Is that OK?” by this point I know I was crying because everyone all came over and comforted me until I felt better.
“OK, so now you know that, the case, I don’t know much except that we are working with Y/N’s old team, which is why she will be taking the lead on this case. All orders come from her, do you understand?” Hotch asked we all nodded and stood up ready to leave. “OK, cars leaves in 30 minutes, Reid, Y/N and Morgan In one, JJ you’re with Dave and I, Garcia you can stay here or you can go in the car with Morgan.” With that we all left and got ready to leave for DC.
*In DC @ the NCIS base*
The ride to DC mainly consisted of Morgan asking question about my past which I answered except those that involved my brother. Garcia had decided she would join us so after the questions she and I did our best to sing along to the radio which was fun considering we couldn’t sing to save our lives.
We had made it the NCIS base, signed in and was making our way up to the floor that I had been many times. As the lift doors opened I could hear a voice I had heard a million times before and some how it sounded exactly the same. As I got closer to the voice I heard more of the convocation. “Boss why in gods name did you bring those big headed, case stealing ass hats in on the case. God I can’t stand them” I laughed a little when I felt the men behind me stiffen. Oh this should be fun.
I guess Gibbs noticed me because he smirked a little as I came to a stop behind Dinozzo and he sent me a slight nod. I smiled and reached up and smacked the back of Tony’s head the way Gibbs used to, or still did.
“Can it bozo, we’re not that bad” I spoke loudly. He turned, surprise evident in his eyes but it soon turned into a mischievous glint
“Well, well, well. If it isn’t McGeek Jr. What are you doing here? Haven’t seen you in, what four years? Oh does big brother know you’re here?” He ask as he swung his arms over my shoulder. I shook my head and pushed his arm away before turning to Gibbs.
“Gibbs it’s good to see you again.” I smiled,“Well, you asked for us, we’re here, what ya got for us?” I asked reaching over to shake Gibbs’ hand but to my surprise he pulled me into a hug which I happy accepted.
“Nice to see you too McGee, or is it Y/L/N now?” He laughed pulling away “Anyway, best way to describe it is…well…the Davy Jones Killer is back.”
“The Davy Jones Killer?” Rossi asked. I felt my body stiffen and the feeling like every bone in my body would break at just the sound of his name. I relaxed a little when I felt Spencer place is arm on my shoulder.
“Err…Yeah, he was the killer I had on my last case at the NCIS. The unsub kidnapped navy officers and marines, kept them and tortured them for two days before he killed them by drowning them then he would stuff them into an old locker and dump it where it would be found…You know literal meaning to ‘Davy Jones’ Locker.” I explained. Trying to keep myself together.
“I guess the name makes sense now, Who named him?”
“The media…word of the murders leaked and the local papers ran the story and named him/her” Dinozzo answered
“So why did you want Y/N so badly?” JJ asked. I saw Ziva look at me a little confused but she replied anyway.
“Well, err…five year ago the err…unsub strayed away from his usual MO and took an agent, tortured them for two day, but before he had the chance to kill them we managed to track the agent down, unfortunately he had already made a run for it and left our agent in horrible shape.” She explained without give too much away. I felt myself move as I took a seat in a near by chair as I took deep breaths.
“I guess you get to find out why I left…the agent that was kidnapped…that was me… I had a lead and some how he know about it so before I could tell Gibbs what I found I was taken. The team found me and I was pretty much dead. After I recovered I left NCIS and began working at a university in Quantico and soon after Rossi and Hotch offered me a job and I took it… But even after I was nearly killed, something kept pulling me towards helping people, you know NCIS, FBI it just seemed like it was something I had to do.” I explained through tears, Spencer, Garcia and JJ all trying to calm me down a little.
A couple of the team members, Spencer and Penelope, knew about my past but I never told them about why I left NCIS not even Spencer, because it hurt to much to think about let alone explain and Spencer knew that so never pushed, which I was grateful for, but talking about it now seemed to bring all the memories that I had tried to bury deep down back all at once and I couldn’t keep it to myself any more. After I had stopped crying I just listened to everyone talk.
“Yeah her accepting the job coursed a huge fight between her and Probie and they haven’t spoken since.” Dinozzo said.
“So is that how you got those scars? When you were taken?” Spencer asked tears in his eyes, I knew that hearing me talk about such a painful memory hurt him because he knew there was nothing he could do to help.
“What scar?” Derek asked looking at me and Spence, an eyebrow raised.
“She has a few small scars up her arms and legs and one large one, about six to seven inches long, on her left hip, never told me how she got it though.” Reid explained to Morgan.
“Wait, how do you know about that, that scar is below trouser line meaning it isn’t visible unless she isn’t wearing trousers.” Dinozzo interrupted
“Oh geek girl and boy genius have been dating for nearly three years now, if anyone knows about Y/N not wearing trousers it’s pretty boy.” Derek said smacking Spence on the back, making everyone laugh as Reid and I turned red.
“OK back on track, please. What do we have on the Unsub so far.” I asked uncomfortable with the conversation.
“Well we know that he hates the Navy. Maybe he was rejected or got discharged and he’s taking his anger out on other officers that got what he didn’t?” JJ offered, I nodded and smiled a little.
“Yeah I remember him always telling me that 'it wasn’t his fault and if they had given him a chance this wouldn’t have happened’ I never know what he meant but JJ has a point. What if he meant that if the navy had given him a chance he wouldn’t have snapped and began killing.” I replied explaining my theory. “Garcia, when we get you set up could you get a list of anyone who didn’t get in or was dishonorably discharged 5-6 years ago, around this area?” I asked as I grabbed a pen and paper writing what I needed down.
“You got it girl wonder, just get me a Computer and we’ll be rolling” She said look over the paper. “I know I’m not a profiler or anything but I’m thinking, what if he had a dad or a grandparent who was pushing him to being the armed forced, you know?”
“And when he was told he couldn’t his father was disappointed, maybe coursed an argument which made our boy snap, baby girl you’re on a roll.?” Derek said fist bumping Garcia.
“Well OK, Garcia is it? You can go down to Abby’s lab and work with her, Y/N can you take her down?” Gibbs said. I nodded and looked at Hotch who nodded.
“OK, Dinozzo can you take Derek to where the bodies were found? Reid and Rossi can you go down to autopsy, ask Ducky what he found and see what you get from them. JJ, you and Ziva go and ask family’s see if they have anything or anyone that links them, Hotch you’re with Gibbs. OK?” I instructed, everyone nodded on went there separate ways, Reid and Rossi followed me and Garcia to the lift.
First stop was the Lab .
“OK, you two go down the next floor and you’ll find Ducky and Jimmy, have fun.” I laughed before kissing Spence’ cheek and exiting the lift, Garcia following behind. As I neared the lab I heard the all to familiar voice of Abby the NCIS lab technician. “It’s not like we need the help, why did Gibbs have the bring in the FBI, especially after last time. They fried my baby McGee.” At the sound of his name I stopped. Garcia noticed and grabbed my hand. “Are you OK?” she asked I nodded and smiled, “Lets go meet Abby, you’ll love her.” I said as I started walking again, “ I don’t know who they are but Gibbs gave me their names. Yeah, Derek Morgan, Jennifer Jareau, David Rossi, Arron Hotchner, Dr Spencer Reid and Y/F/N Y/L/M.” At this point I was at the door so I decided to speak up,
“Yeah I heard that last one is a real…what’s the word…oh yeah, Psycho Bitch.” I said as I lent against the door way. Abby turned towards the door and her eyes lit up, she dropped what ever papers she was holding and she ran into my arms, almost knocking my down.
“Y/N…Your here…In my lab…what?..why?..how?” she asked as she pulled away. I laughed and smiled back, “Nice to see you too Abbs. This is my friend Penelope, she needs a computer if you don’t mind.” Abby grabbed Garcia and took her towards the computer leaving me stood smiling as I watched them.
It was then I noticed the other person sat at a computer. He didn’t say anything he just went back to what he was doing. I shock my head and walked over to Abby “Abs do you have a large map of DC? I wanna look at something.” I asked, she nodded and pulled out a map and placed it on a large white board. I thanked her, put my head phones in and got to work.
I marked out the locations of the first group of bodies on the map the marked out the next set of bodies. After a bit of work my phone began to ring, “Y/L/N” I answered,
“Hey, we’re about done here, we’re coming up to the lab,” Rossi said into the phone before he hung up. I put my head phones in and got back to work until I felt a pair of arm wrap around my stomach. Knowing it was Reid I pulled out my head phones and lent back into his chest. “ I’ve drawn a blank. I’ve marked out their last known locations and where the bodies were found but I have nothing…the first lot of bodies were all taken from a ten mile radios but dumped in a town 5 miles away in a ten block radius, same for the last lot of bodies. There is no correlation between the locations of abduction and dump sight.” I explained to Reid.
We stayed like this until I got fed up so I turned around and hugged into Reid’s chest, now that my head wasn’t so preoccupied with the map, I felt a little relaxed just standing there in Reid’s arms, that was until I remembered why I was here, and who we were looking for., and just like that, I couldn’t breath, my head went dizzy and I felt myself falling. “Y/n, what’s wrong?” I heard Reid say, I felt I couldn’t talk so I did the only thing I could do, I signed the sign for Panic attack. Reid didn’t know a lot of sign language but he knew this sign all to well.
“Panic attack? Oh crap… Here take her in there, and shut the doors, it will be quiet.” Abby offered. By now Abby and Garcia were standing close by me even Tim, who had been ignoring me but watching me all day had joined to make sure I was OK. Spencer sat me down on a chair and smile, shaking his head. “It’s OK I got this, can you just get her a glass of water please.” He said calmly, he had done this a thousand times before so he wasn’t worried. “Y/N look at me, OK were gonna count our fingers OK,” he said loudly but calmly as I looked up a Spencer and nodded. I looked into his eyes and we began to count, counting each finger as we went, my breathing slowing with every count, just as we hit ten Spencer leaned in and brought his lips to mine. We stayed there, for about a minute before he pulled away and smiled at me. “Better?”
“Much” I smiled back before taking the cup of water from Abby taking a sip. I smiled and thanked her before laying my head of Spencer’s chest. “You should take a break, in there and I’ll carry on from here.” Spencer said as he picked me up and took me into the quiet room.
I’m not sure how long I was there for, but I woke up to the sound of knocking. I sat up expecting to see Spencer but instead stood there was the one person I never expected to see, my big brother. Just seeing him bought tears to my eyes, I had missed him, so much.
“Hi” he said quietly, I didn’t say anything back I just looked at him, tears welling up. “Y/N, I’m sorry, I didn’t mean the things I said when you left.”
“It sure sounded like you meant them Tim. Do you know how much it hurt me, my heart literally broke when you told me you hated me. The only person I had left in the world hated me and didn’t want me anymore.” I sobbed
“I know and I’m sorry I was angry and scared. You we going of to join the FBI, I couldn’t protect you while you were there and I couldn’t understand why you wanted to leave me behind.”
“Just because I took the job doesn’t mean I was leaving you behind Tim. You were the only family I had left.” I shouted this time feeling myself get angry.
“That’s why I got angry…wait were? I’m not your family anymore?” he asked sadly, you could see his heart breaking the moment he said that. I shock my head and stood up.
“Of course you still my family Timmy, you always will be, its just while working at the BAU I found a new family. You left me alone and even though you did I still loved you, I still love you, but I’m not alone anymore…I have Penelope and JJ who treat me like their sister, I have Rossi and Derek who to treat me like a little sister and Hotch, who since the day I joined the team has treated me like a daughter, even his son, Jack, calls me his big sister. And Spencer, who I love so much because every time I’ve fallen his been the to pick me up and every time I felt broken, he’s the one who put me back together again, they are all the best family a girl could ask for.” I said stepping closer to Tim, I didn’t know what I was doing, my body just did what it wanted. “but there is always someone missing, someone who knew how to make me smile at even the darkest times, with just one words. But that person told me he never wanted to see me again.”
“I told you I never meant what I said. Of course I want to see you again, as often as possible. Your my little sister, If you don’t forgive me I will understand…” At this my head snapped up and looked at him before I laughed and ran into him. “Of course I forgive you, you Idiot, you’re my brother.” I said tears of joy welling up in my eyes. This is the first time in four years I’ve held my brother in my arms and right now I couldn’t be happier.
After a little while of talking to Tim I decided it was time to get back to work. I exited the room, with Tim following behind, and walked over to Spencer to find him talking to Hotch, Garcia and Abby. As I got closer Hotch noticed me and rushed over. “Y/N are you OK?” he asked concern written on his face. I nodded and smiled before grabbing Tim’s hand and pulling him over to my team.
“Guys, this is my brother Tim McGee, Tim, these are some of the members of my team. This is our tech analyst and my best friend Penelope Garcia, our team leader and my work dad Aaron Hotchner and this handsome devil here is my boyfriend Dr Spencer Reid.” I said introducing them all. “Nice to meet you McGee, OK boss lady, we may have found your guy.” Garcia said as she moved to face me handing me a tablet with a man of the screen.
He had a pale, rounded face. His blue eyes were surrounded by huge black circles and were almost dead. He had a scar that ran from his eye to his jaw bone. his black hair rested messily on his head and a short black beard covered his lips but you could still see the slight smirk that played on his lips.
I looked at the picture and it sent a shiver down my spine. I might not have seen his face while he was hurting me, but I knew those eyes. Those where that eyes that hunted my dreams for years after the incident. This was the face of the man who destroyed me, turned my from the extremely happy woman into a small, scared girl that for the first year of my life after the kidnapping, spent every night, crying, screaming and sleeping with a gun.
“Where?” Was all I said as I put the tablet down and grab my gun.
“We don’t know yet. We have checked every possible lead but we cant find him.” Abby replied, looking over at me slightly wary.
“I have an Idea”
“No” Reid said before I could even say anything, “it’s not happening, you’ll get hurt again and Hotch and I wont let you.”
“Spence, its the only way to draw him out.” I retorted but he just shook his head no. I looked towards Hotch but he did the same.
“Thing is guys, Hotch gave me the lead on this case, I know this case and I know what needs to be done, So Abby, I want you to write, call, fax every newspaper within a fifty mile radius, tell them we have a lead, tell them Ex NCIS, now FBI agent Y/F/N McGee has taken over the investigation of the Davy Jones killer…make it clear I am in charge and I know who the killer is. Make him come sniffing around the base Abby, bring him out to me.” I instructed as I grabbed my jacket and walked out of the Lab.
“You not doing the right thing here, Y/N.” I heard Hotch say behind me, I turn and smiled a sad smile before walking into his arms.
From the day I met Hotch he had treated me like a daughter, he took care of me, he became protective of me when I started dating Reid. He took me into his home when I got kicked out of my first apartment in Quantico. He was more of a father than my adoptive father ever was and I was thankful for him and he always knew how to make things better…except this time. “But you can’t put yourself in danger, I won’t allow it. Please stop this, we’ll find another way to bring him out.” He pleaded, holding me tight. “I don’t think I could loose you, Y/N, non of us can especially Spencer. he loves you and he just wants to protect you.” He continued, trying to reason with me.
“I know, and I love him for that, but I need to do this. It is the only way to bring the guy out of hiding. you know I’m right.” I explained
“It’s not Y/N you know it’s not.” Spencer interrupted walking to me and Hotch.
“But you know it is Spencer, I’ve looked back at the date of the first of the most recent deaths, it was just after I appeared on the news with the grieving family from the Carter kidnapping case. He saw me there Spence, he knew it was me. He started killing again to draw me out again.” I said trying to reason with me worried boyfriend.
“She’s right Reid, the dates are to much of a coincidence to be wrong.” Hotch agreed
“She’ll get herself killed Hotch, I couldn’t take it, the team couldn’t take that…Jack couldn’t take that, he couldn’t lose another mother/sister figure in his life, not if we could have stopped it. We can’t let her do this.” He cried, no I mean he was literally crying tear ran down his face as he made his case.
I smiled a sad smile and walked over to him, wiping his tears before kissing him softly. “I’ll make you a deal, If I don’t die…If I come out of this alive, I will take a whole week of my vacation time and we will go visit your mum, we’ll go any where you want, just us,” I bargained, trying to lighten the mood a little which worked, a small smile appeared on his face after a couple of minutes. By now Hotch had left us alone to talk it out
“OK, but If you make it out of this, without being killed, You have to marry me.” He said simply, a smile on his face. It was a real genuine smile and I couldn’t help but smile back.
“Why Dr. Reid, did you just propose to me?” I asked a hint of humor in my voice.
“Why, yes I did miss McGee, I am asking you, right here, right now to marry me.” He smiled.
“Well, I accept your proposal, when I make it out of this, and I will, I will marry you, any place any time.” I said smiling up at him, pulling his face down to mine and kissing his lips softly. Only pulling away when the elevator door opened revealing Rossi, Morgan and JJ.
“Guys non of that, we are on a case. ” Rossi said as he walked by us
“Yeah and we just ate.” Morgan smiled slightly as he followed.
We just ignored them and smiled, wild toothy grins that wouldn’t leave our faces which JJ noticed. “Why are you so happy about, isn’t Y/N doing something that could get her killed, or am I the only one who sees that."She grumbled, glaring at me.
"I just asked her to marry me when this is finished with.” Spencer shrugged which than made JJ scream a little in excitement.
“Oh my god, what did she say? Wait, no if you are both smiling and happy she said yes. Oh my little Spencer’s all grown up."she laughed pulling us both into a hug.
We pulled away and we turned to each other, "Don’t say anything, until we get this guy, OK?” I told JJ who just nodded and pulled us both in the the lab where my team and McGee where talking while Abby was typing away at the computer and we waited for a few minutes until Dinozzo and Gibbs entered the lab.
“OK the News teams will get this out there and will keep repeating it every half hour until it’s over. McGee I want you on protective detail of Y/N until further notice. Do you understand?” Abby said after she finished typing, we all looked at her and began laughing McGee nodded and looked over at Gibbs who smiled softly at Abby and nodded.
“You heard her McGee.” He said simply. “McGee Jr, this is a stupid idea but also smart so good luck and good job. Well, I guess all we can do know is wait. So I suggest go home and sleeping, I trust you have hotels to stay at?” Gibbs asked. My team and I nodded and we all began walking out of the lab ready to go to the hotel to go to bed because it was getting late.
*The next morning*
The next morning I woke up to a knock at the door and JJ call my name. I climbed out of bed and opened the door letting her in the room, I also peaked my head through the door frame to see Tim was still on the couch, that the hotel had put outside our room, so he was comfortable while watching over me.
“Did you sleep at all?” I asked him, to which he nodded,
“Yeah, Dinozzo took the first shift. I got back about ten minutes ago.” He replied,
“Right well, let us get changed and we’ll get over to the NCIS Base.” I told him. He nodded and I walked back into my room. JJ had already woken Spencer up so I walked straight over to my case and pulled out clothing for the day before walking into the bathroom. I put on a black pair of skinny jeans, a white blouse and a black waist coat. I added a black skinny tie and a pair of black converse.
“Aww I love the 'Reid’ look you got going on there Y/N.” JJ smiled as I walked out of the bathroom. “I think it’s cute how you like to match your outfits.” She laughed again, pointing to Spencer who was sat on the bed smiling a wide grin. That was when I noticed Spencer and I did match, except his shirt was blue, not white and his wore a pair of suit pants which, matched his waist coat.
“Really, again.” I laughed, looking at Spencer.
“Wait, this has happened before?” JJ asked surprised.
“Yeah, more then you think.” I shook my head before grabbing my keys, bag and badge and walked out to the door, JJ and Reid following behind me.
“Hey sis, guys, you ready to go?” Tim spoke once he spotted us.
“Yeah, the others will be meeting us in the lobby.” JJ replied. We walked to the lift and down to the Lobby where the rest of my team were sat waiting for us, Rossi rose when he saw the four of us ad handed us each a coffee and a muffin.
“Breakfast!” I yelped happily taking the cup and food gratefully.
“Yeah your gonna need it…Just got word from the young lady in the NCIS lab….”
“Abby” I interrupter.
“Abby…right…she got a phone call, left no name, telling her that the unsub was spotted by the NCIS base. We think he is going to try his luck today.” Rossi informed us.
“Wow, that was quick.” I sighed, a little uneasy. “Well, lets get this over with you guys can take the cars meet us there, Spence, you wanna come with Time and I?”
Spencer nodded and I made my way, following Tim, to the car.
*At the NCIS Lab*
I looked around, the team were about, keeping a close eye on me but not close enough for the Unsub to spot them, if he shows up. I was on the computer in a room were I can be seen from outside, in plain sight. I looked up every now and then, only to see my team keeping an eye out for me.
“You know this might not even work, this could all be fore nothing.” Derek told me from at the door frame. I looked up and smiled sadly at him.
“It will work Derek, he won’t want me alive, being able to identify him.” I told him, “It’s not who he is.”
“And if it does work and he comes here, what happens if he gets to you? You could be hurt.”
I nodded and smiled slightly at him. “I know Derek, that has crossed my mind already.” I told him honestly.
“We might not be quick enough to save you.” he whispered, to which I nodded in response.
“I know.” I whispered back.
“He’s scared you know.” Derek commented after a couple of minutes silence. “He won’t show it, because he’s Spencer, but I can see it in his eyes, every time he looks at you, it’s like it’s for the last time.” He told me. I nodded and I I began to shown the feeling I had tried so hard to hide.
“I dunno how…how else I’m supposed to get this guy, I dunno what to Derek, I need him to know that this is for the best.” I cried.
“He knows that Y/N, we all do, we just wanted to find a better, safer way to find this guy.”
“I’m sorry Derek.”
“Don’t worry about it kid. Just make sure you get out of the alive.” he told me I nodded and smiled up at him.
“He asked me to marry him you know?” I blurted to Derek.
“Yeah I know, I wasn’t supposed to tell you I knew cos he wanted to tell everyone together but I guess he couldn’t wait…Congrats girl wonder, you and him…you’ll live a long and happy life together, have a few genius kids and be the best family I know.”
“And they’ll have there uncle Derek to teach them how to play football because god knows Spence can’t.” I laughed, making Derek laugh too.
“Yeah and their auntie Penelope will tech them how to look of the bright side of everything.” Derek continued.
“And Uncle Hotch keeping them in line,"I told him smiling at the thought of a mini Spence and a tiny me running around.
"Actually, I think your kids will call Hotch 'grandpa’ and Jack will be there uncle.” Derek laughed and I couldn’t help but laugh at him because he was the most part right.
“See. you know you’re gonna make it out of this alive… you got a whole life planned.” Derek said as I walked back to my desk, Derek following behind.
Then the worst happened. I heard the sound of a window crack and the sound of something flying through the air. It all seemed to happen in slow motion, Derek dove in front of me and the bullet hit him in the arm, it seemed to go right throw and hit me square in the chest. It knocked the breath right out of me. Derek fell to the floor, holding his arm and groaning in pain.
“Derek!” I whispered breathlessly. My chest felt as though it was being torn in two. Blood filled my mouth and spilled over my lips as I slowly fell to the floor.
“ I NEED SOME HELP IN HERE” Derek shouted as he made his way to me. He pulled his jacket off and pressed it to my chest, applying pressure to keep the bleeding a bay. “Y/N, Kid stay with me OK.” he spoke, you need to talk to me OK stay awake.“ By now people were running in to the room and kneeling by me.
"Tell me about you’re kids, what will there names be?” Derek asked, ignoring the questions and shouting coming from everyone in the room. “Ignore everyone else focus on me…tell me what names you want to give your’s and Spencer’s kids.”
I nodded and thought for a second, fighting against the darkness that threatened of over come me. “I always liked Ariya for a girl.” I laughed when Derek eyebrows raised in suprise.
“Game of thrones. Nice choice. What about a boy?” He asked. I began coughing, loudly and it hurt a lot. I felt a tear roll down my face. “Another name from Game Of Thrones?” he asked to which I scrunched my face up.
“No way” I laughed breathlessly, “For a boy we’ll call him Timothy.” I smiled at Derek who smiled back. “Timothy Derek Reid. After the two most amazing brothers Spence and I have ever met.”
Before Derek could say anything Spencer came rushing over, panicking like usual.
“Kid, shes gonna be OK, we just need to keep her awake.” Derek told him and he only nodded in response. He was to shocked to speak by the looks of things.
“So Timothy Derek and Little Ariya, will they be baptized?” Derek asked, Spencer just looked at him confused but still didn’t say anything.
“Yeah, JJ and Rossi will be godparents to Ariya and Tim and Abby will be Godparent to Timothy Derek. But you and Garcia will be Godparents to both, that way if the worst ever happened they will not be separated.” I smiled, my mind being to occupied to bother about the impending darkness that looms over me.
“No Y/N, Keep fighting OK, stay awake, tell me more about little Tim and Ariya.” Derek shouted panic but it was no use, he sounded so far away and as my eyelids dropped the sound of Derek’s voice stopped completely.
*Two Days Later*
I laid there in darkness, I could hear everything that’s going on but I couldn’t open my eyes, not that I didn’t try. All I did was try to give Spencer some sign that I was OK but, nothing worked, so I decided to take a break when I heard the door to my room open and a few sets of feet shuffled in.
“Hey, Kid, hows she doing?” A voice I knew all to well asked Spencer who was still by my side, holding my hand.
“She’s OK, the Doctor said she’ll wake up any day now, everything is looking good she just needs to build up strength to open her eyes.” Spence answered
“Yeah? That’s great.” I heard Rossi speak up.
“They said that by the amount of brain activity it’s likely she can hear us.” Spencer explained.
“Well that’s good, hey, Y/N, It’s Garcia. we need you to wake up, I don’t know if you know this but…Wait, does she know?” Garcia asked, I guess Spencer.Know what? I thought to myself.
“No, that doctor said she was not far enough gone to have noticed, only four weeks or so by now” He answered. I was starting to get frustrated, what were they talking about?
“I’ll tell you what, if she is able to hear this, she would be freaking out that she doesn’t know whats going on.” I heard Hotch laugh.
It was at this point I felt my finger move…I can move! I shouted to myself. I used every bit of energy I had left to open my eyes and speak. “You got that right Dad.” I muttered, catching everybody’s attention.
“Y/N!” Garcia shouted carefully pulling me into a hug.
“Hey guys.” I smiled as I watched Spencer rush closer to me.
“You know, you scared the hell out of me Y/N,” Spencer smiled softly grabbing my hand and bringing it to his lips.
“Sorry, Spence, I swear I was fighting with everything I had…I still have to marry you yet.” I joked.
“You what now?” Garcia asked, shock clear on her face.
“I’ll explain later.” Derek told her before turning back to me. “You look like crap Kid.” he laughed, making me laugh too.
“So, what don’t I know about? Is everything OK?” I asked, getting a little anxious now.
“Everything’s fine, I got some news.” Spencer smiled, bright over to the others who all nodded back to him.
“While in surgery, you ermm lost a bit of blood and well the doctors ran some tests and well, Y/N, You’re pregnant.” Spencer explained, he looked like he was about to explode with excitement.
I looked at him shocked for a couple of minutes and I shook my head. “Is it OK, I mean with everything that happened?” I asked sitting up, worry and fear evident in my voice.
“The baby is fine, about four months, the doctor said it would have been a close call but the little one kept fighting.” He smiled, placing his hand over my stomach.
“Does everyone know?”
“Well the team do and your NCIS team know as I guess Tim told them.” JJ interrupted, finally speaking up from behind Hotch.
“Yeah, it looks like Little Ariya or Little Timothy Derek Reid will become a reality.” Derek smiled at me making me laugh.
“I’m gonna be a mom” I cried pulling Spencer into a hug.
“So what you gonna do when you get out of here?” Rossi asked.
I looked over to Spencer and smiled “Well, it we have a trip to look forward to and a wedding to plan” I reminded him, coursing the already huge smile to become even bigger.
*Three Years Later*
I looked up at my soon to be husband as I slid the silver ring on to his finger. He did the same, slipping a thin silver ring onto my finger matching the engagement ring he had gotten me perfectly.
“I know pronounce you man and wife, you may now kiss the bride.” Rossi smiled. I smiled up to Reid and grabbed a hold of his suit jacket, pulling him to me and kissing him long and hard as our friends and family burst into loud cheers. We pulled away an Spence and I walked down the Isle, Derek was Spencer’s Best man, my brother Tim and Jack were the grooms men, while mine and Spencer’s son Timmy was our ring barer. Garcia was my maid of Honor and Abby, JJ and Sarah, my sister, my bridesmaids.They all followed behind us, happily. As we passed our friends and family I couldn’t help but smile at myself. Gibbs and Dinozzo were at the front, along with Ziva, Jimmy and Ducky and their dates. Hotch, being my father figure of course gave me away (and Timmy stuck to him like glue.)and Rossi played the role as minister.
Our wedding was to be small and private but soon turned into a big white wedding in a public garden, under a gazebo filled with flowers and fairy lights at sun set. Our bridesmaids were dressed in red dressed with black and red roses while Abby dressed in a black dress with red and black roses. The groomsmen were dressed in black suits with red ties and pocket squares. Spencer dressed slimier. I ware a while dress with lace sleeves and a long white vale. I felt very much like a princess and I couldn’t keep the smile off of my face all day.
As Spencer and I reached the end of the isle I turned to him and smiled. “Well, would you look at that, you stuck with me now.” I joked.
“Well, It’s a good job I love you then, isn’t it?” Spencer smiled, “Mrs Reid.”
“It may take a while to get used to that. I smiled up at him. ” And for the record, I love you too Dr Reid.“ I replied. Spence laughed and lent down, kissing my lips once again. Timmy came over and Spencer Caught him and brought him to his hip. I turned to face The photographer and the three of us smiled at the camera as he took a photo. Spencer then whispered in Timmy’s ear and smiled as he handed him to me. With Timmy perched on my waist and Spencer by my side we once again looked at the camera only this time, as the photographer counted down as he hit one both Spence and Timmy kissed each of my cheeks coursing the biggest smile to erupt on my face.
"I love you Mrs Reid.”
“and I you Dr Reid.” I smiled, placing another soft kiss on his lips, which the photographer caught on film.
