A/N- Yes, yes. I'm a horrible updater on this story. I know. But this is the final chapter in the Rossi/Garcia get together story, so yay for me and my muse! LOL. On with the show.
Disclaimer- *sticks out tongue at CBS* They still won't share with me! Selfish pigs.
Rating- T for mild sexual reference.
As David Rossi held Penelope Garcia close for the slow, smooth jazz number, he breathed in the flowery, somewhat exotic scent that in his mind represented the tech analyst. In the three hours that they had danced and talked, he had realized that he more than lusted after her, he LIKED her too. That, he knew, had been to problem with all of his marriages. He had desired them, wanted them in his bed, but ultimately didn't care whether they stayed or left. It was a bit of a shock to realize that the woman he held could easily break his heart into a million pieces. He set his jaw in determination. He'd be damned if he let this one go, Derek Morgan or no Derek Morgan. Penelope Garcia was HIS.
When he dropped her off that night, he kissed her cheek softly and then stood there just looking at her. She smiled that lovely Garcia smile and said
"My yummy Italian geleato, this has been an evening full of dreams come true. I'd like…"
Whatever she had been about to say was cut off when his lips covered hers in a breathtaking kiss. She melted into it with both her body and soul. As he drew her closer, she managed to gasp out
"Dave, oh my god… As much as I want you right now, I'll be damned if I'm just one of your conquests."
She thought he'd let loose with that famously frightening Italian temper of his, but instead his lips quirked up in a smile
"Kitten, you could never be a conquest. All those other women were just practice so I'd be perfect when you came along. Because I love you, Penelope Garcia. Every uniquely gorgeous, quirky, tech savy inch of you."
Her eyes shined bright with tears as she threw herself back into his arms.
"Took you long enough, you idiot! I've been in love with you since the first time you called me Kitten."
It was with a heart full of love and promise that David Rossi kissed his woman with from this time and until the end of time.
A/N2- OMG! It's finally done! This story wanted to be written, but when it came time to actually write it, it refused to cooperate. I hope ya'll like it and whether you love it or you hate it, please leave me a review and let me know what you think.
