Hey! Thanks for the positive reviews!
"Spence? Are you okay?" asked JJ. It was late, the rest of the team had gone home, only JJ and Spencer remained at their desks, working.
"I'm fine thank you. And please refrain from calling me Spence." His focus was on the computer screen, slight dark bags under his eyes. JJ frowned.
"No real reason, I'm just not a fan of nick names." He shrugged.
"No real reason?" JJ laughed "Come on Spencer, give me something, this is you! You always have reasons," Spencer sighed, swivelling his chair away from the screen to look at her.
"Alright then," he began, clasping his hands and looking her right in the eye "It's probably because my dad use to call me Spence, and then when he left, I felt so heartbroken and no one ever gave me a nick name that my mum started to call me Spence, to try and fill the empty void she believed to be in my life. Only what she didn't realise was the void was my dad, not the name. So every time she said it, I got memories, bad memories, that although I wasn't trying to repress, I was trying to forget. So now, I prefer Reid, or Spencer. Not Spence. Not so much because I think the memories will come back, but simply because the name puts a bad taste into my mouth. Which in a way is sort of funny, because Wordsworth said, 'those kind shall never taste a bitter thing'" he cracked a smile near the end, eyes glistening.
JJ watched him in shock for a moment "…I think I was fine with the 'I'm not a fan of nick names' excuse," she muttered teasingly, turning back to the screen. Spencer smiled. "Hey, where were you this morning?"
Spencer tensed slightly, he had been with Kelly "Nowhere, I was out, with a friend..shopping."
JJ arched an eye brow at him, "So you were doing nothing. And you were with a friend. And you went shopping."
"Yeah." Spencer shrugged in a high voice "Exactly."
"Alright," he sighed, running both hands through his hair "But you have to promise not to tell anyone."
"Okay," Spencer breathed "I was with Kelly, we're sort of…how would you say it? An item now,"
"Y-you're what?" JJ asked, mouth opened in shock. "Reid! You can't do that! It's against the rules," she stood, pointing an accusing hand at him
"You promised!" Reid jumped up "You promised you wouldn't tell."
"What are you? Seven?" JJ asked in disbelief, getting out her phone. Spencer ran forward, knocking it out of her hand. It fell to the ground, she watched it clatter, before turning to him.
And suddenly he was too close. Far too close. She could smell him, he smelt of soap and dust.
"Spence?" she asked in a quiet voice
"Don't call me Spence," he murmured, kissing her. And he knew it was wrong, he knew he was with Kelly, but in all fairness, JJ looked a lot like Kelly, and maybe in the right light…
He pushed her down onto the desk, hovering above her, this kiss was soft and gentle. Slow. Reid would have pulled back in all fairness, had JJ not taken her hand and tangled it in his hair.
"Spencer…" she whispered "Where did you learn to kiss?" He didn't answer. There was no real answer to that question. So he just pressed his lips to hers once more.
"Hey, are you two alright?" Morgan asked. JJ and Reid sat on the other side of the room, quiet.
"Yeah," Hotch agreed "You are been pretty quiet today."
JJ looked up at them, and elbowed Reid in the stomach.
"Ow!" he exclaimed, looking up from doing nothing to see them all watching them. "Hi?"
"You guys okay?" Rossi asked curiously.
"Yes. You?" everyone in the room rolled their eyes and Spencer shot out a confused look "What?" he asked quietly to Penelope "Was that not the right answer?"
Hey guys! Wasn't as long, I know, don't sue me…But I need a few more reviewers, I only have 2! And I also have a massive lack of motivation!
