Enjoy! And let me know what you think. :)
Friday, April 13th - 9:32 a.m.
Supervisory Special Agents' Derek Morgan and Emily Prentiss drew their guns as they were approaching the front door. The Unit Chief, Aaron Hotchner and SSA Jennifer "JJ" Jareau were at the back door. SSA's Spencer Reid and David Rossi were in the shed at the back of the isolated property. They all knew that they needed to arrest the Unsub, so hopefully they could find some clue that could tell them where the suspect was hiding.
"One, two, three!" Hotch spoke over the radio system.
"Liam Duncan, this is the FBI. We're coming in!" Prentiss yelled into the house as Morgan kicked in the door on Hotch's count. Hotch did the same thing to the back, and Rossi knocked the garage door in as well. The BAU took over Liam Duncan's home.
Prentiss and Morgan took half the main floor and the upstairs as planned, while Hotch and JJ took the rest, including the basement.
"Clear," Rang out Hotch's voice.
"We have another body," came Reid's over the radio, "she's already dead. There is evidence in here that suggests this is where he must have kept all the women."
They were too late to save another victim, but it didn't mean that they still couldn't get the Unsub. JJ headed outside to join Rossi and Reid, while Hotch headed outside as well to organize the local authority. They both assumed that Morgan and Prentiss would be out of the house as soon as it was cleared, so the team could profile it to see where else Duncan could be hiding.
Morgan and Prentiss were almost finished clearing the upper floor, there were only two doors left. Both doors were on opposite sides of the hallway and each agent took a door.
"Clear!" Morgan's roomed turned out to be nothing more than a closet, so he turned to follow Prentiss.
Prentiss had just entered the last remaining room when the Unsub, Liam Duncan jumped her from behind. He had been crouched beside a small table, that was hidden from view. He knocked her gun away, grabbed her and pulled Prentiss to his chest, putting his gun to her temple. Before the raid, the team had it under good authority that Duncan would not be home, so the shock of seeing the suspect had momentarily stilled Prentiss allowing Duncan to control her.
Duncan whispered in Prentiss' ear, "You move, you die."
Emily Prentiss had been in difficult situations before and her mind was working overtime to figure a way to get out. Duncan backed himself and Prentiss towards the window and he kept his gun on her the whole time.
Morgan busted though the door as soon as he did not hear Prentiss clear the area. As soon as his eyes sweep the room, he saw the predicament that she was in. Morgan trained his gun on the criminal, yelling "Duncan, release her!"
"No! I'm already going down for eleven murders, what's one more?" The disturbed young man asked.
"We can make a deal, if you put down your weapon," Morgan encouraged as he made eye contact with Prentiss.
Suddenly, Prentiss ducked as Morgan shot. Duncan was hit in the shoulder. He fell backwards towards the opened window and dragged Prentiss with him and they both fell to the ground.
Morgan watched in horror as his partner fell to the ground two stories below. He quickly turned around and headed outside to ensure the safety of his partner before she had even hit the earth, because if thee was one thing he knew, it was that he could not lose her again.
There was a definite crack as Prentiss hit the gravel below her, landing on her side a split second before her head hit the ground causing her to black out.
