A/N: Last one for today. This one is from Garcia's POV.
Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the stars refuse to shine
Out of the back you fall in time
I somehow find, you and I collide.
- 'Collide' by Howie Day
It'd been a long few years. Of course it had though! That's what happens when you're underground and hacking things you probably shouldn't be hacking. She'd been the best, no one could top her goddess like skills at the helm of a mainframe. She was unstoppable and then...'BAM'...she was being arrested and within days she was being shipped off to Quantico.
Now here she was, surrounded by people in stuffy suits and with guns on their hips. It was not a place for a Garcia, especially not this particular Garcia. But she really didn't have much choice. She'd metaphorically stumbled over her heels and computer cables and landed smack dab in the middle of the FBI.
She was alone, in uncharted territory that even Indiana Jones would have to take a step back from just to regain his balance. Basically, it was one big mess. And she hated messes.
Which was one reason why she was at the filing cabinets in the bullpen. She was hoping to de-clutter her new office by putting all the paper files into digital format. At least that was one kind of mess she could clean up. But then, just as she went to turn, she heard the two words that would follow her forever in a voice that would fill her dreams for decades to come.
"Hey, Baby Girl!"
She turned around slowly, a single eyebrow raising until she spotted Adonis himself standing in the middle of the busy FBI bullpen. Suddenly, she didn't mind where she had landed after her 'stumble'. In fact, the future was looking much brighter for her already.
