I don't wanna hurt nobody
But my heart just can't hold back
It's the way you make me feel
Spinning my world around
Tell me how can I walk away
I don't care what they say
I'm loving you anyway
Reid told Emily "I felt like nothing special until the moment you said you love me."
Her mind was fighting believing it was true but her heart soared at hearing his words.
He cupped her face in his hands and leaned down so his forehead rested against hers. Their breaths mingled. She slid even closer to him, her hands moving to his chest to caress it.
Reid went on "I didn't just realize I have feelings for you tonight...I realized it the day you flirted with that cop right in front of me."
"Huh?" she asked, feeling dazed and having no recollection of flirting with any cop.
"February 23rd at 8:54am in Seattle. You laughed at his joke and made a sexual innuendo. I've never known jealousy like that before. I could taste it in my mouth. I hated him because you wanted him."
"I want you, Reid. Only you," she whispered, her eyes moving down to his lips and back up to meet his gaze again. "I don't even remember what cop you're talking about."
"I remember though. I'll never forget because that was the moment I knew I wanted you to want me the way you wanted him."
"You didn't say anything."
"You called me brave a couple minutes ago. I'm not brave when it comes to feelings."
"Me either." She stroked the stubble on his cheek, her lips getting nearer and nearer to his until he jerked her body that last little distance between them and brought his mouth down on hers.
