Spencer was smart. Very smart. Okay, he was a genius. He had an IQ of 187 and he had an eidetic memory. He could read in multiple languages, even write in them. However, speaking in them was difficult for him.
He would use the wrong pronunciation or use the wrong inflection. He would emphasize the wrong words.
That’s why you were here.

“This is Ms. Y/F/N Y/L/N.” Hotch introduced you to the team.
“Nice to meet you all.” You began shaking everyone’s hand as Hotchner gave you names to the faces.

“I’ve heard a lot about you.” you outstretched your hand towards him.
“Oh he doesn’t-” Morgan began to say, but was shocked as Reid took you hand in his.
“It is a pleasure to meet you.” he smiled warmly before jumping right back into the case and catching you up.
