A/n, thanks for the reviews and all the alerts and favorites. Please continue to review. I love feedback. Also, if you haven't done so, please vote on my pole... Happy reading.
It was now a month later and the team was on a case in Ohio.. The unsub was taking men with middle class jobs and brutally attacking them then killing them. They'd been at the case for nearly a week and they were exhausted. It was now the eighth day of the case and they'd finally caught a break. Everyone accept for Emily seemed to be happy about this. Emily was sitting at the table while Hotch gave out assignments as to who was to go after the unsub and who was to stay behind but she wasn't really listening.
"You ready to go, Em?" Derek called out.
"Huh, what?" asked the brunette.
"I asked if you're ready to go, you're with me," Morgan responded.
"Oh yeah, sure," she replied. The others headed off to do what they'd been told to do while Emily and Morgan headed to see if they could find their unsub in his usual hide out.
The ride to the unsub's hide-out was silent until Morgan broke it.
"What's the matter, princess?"
"Nothing's the matter," Emily answered sullenly.
"Why don't I believe you, Em?" her best friend asked.
"No profiling each other remember?" she admonished.
"I wasn't profiling you. It doesn't take a profiler to see that something is wrong with you," Morgan told her gently. Emily blew out a breath and sniffed back tears. She was angry for letting this get to her, but she couldn't help it. Against her will a tear slid down her cheek. Angrily she brushed it away, but not before Morgan noticed it. Pulling the car to the side of the road he unbuckled his seatbelt and turned to his crying friend.
"Come on, Em. Talk to me, it's Morgan, your best friend. You can tell me anything," he coaxed. Reaching out he brushed the tears from her cheek with his thumb.
"You know how Reid and I want to start a family, right?" Emily began. Morgan nodded his head. As much as he teased Reid about being a father, Morgan had no doubt that both he and Emily would make excellent parents to any child they had.
"Well, we've been trying and this morning I realized I was a couple days late so I took a test and it came back negative. Then to ad insult to injury I started today, confirming the negative result. I told Reid all this at lunch and do you know what he said?"
"No, what did he say?" Morgan asked softly.
"He said we can try again and that it's not my fault. But it is, Morgan, it's my fault. I'm supposed to be able to get pregnant and have a baby and I can't do something so simple," Emily said bitterly as she sobbed.. Gathering the clearly upset female agent into his arms, Morgan stroked her hair as he spoke.
"It's only the first month. You know that not everyone gets pregnant right away. It took my sister Sarah six months to get pregnant with my niece. I'm sure Reid told you all this, didn't he?" Emily nodded her head. "He's right, you just have to be patient. Relax and let it happen. When it's meant to happen it will," Morgan said reassuringly.
"Thanks, Morgan, I needed to hear that. I mean Reid said the same thing to me this morning, but it's easier to hear and accept from someone who isn't so involved in the situation. Okay, that's enough about me. Now it's time to go catch this guy."
"Okay, let's go catch us a bad guy," Morgan agreed pulling back on to the road and continuing towards their destination.
A/n I know this chapter didn't really have Reid in it, but I think one of my favorite parts of the show is the close bond Emily and Morgan have. I also like the close bond between Reid ad JJ. Expect to see both of those shown a lot in this fic along with the Reid/Emily relationship. Hope you enjoy and please read and review.
