Spoilers: For the episode that aired in the US on March 10th…I think it was called Mind's Eye but please don't hold me to that
A/N: Please forgive me if anything doesn't seem to fit, from what I've seen of the show (which is every show) they haven't really given a lot of Megan's history. Now I could be blind and they gave TONS of history and I missed it but whether or not there was I missed it…so I wrote it the way I thought it should go, please don't kill me if it doesn't fit
Late Night Phone Call
"Hey mom" Megan Reeves spoke apprehensively into her phone. Why am I doing this? Megan thought to herself. Ok so maybe he knew some things about me that can' t really be explained but does that mean I should call my father?
"Megan? Sweetie it's two in the morning" Natasha Reeves answered
"Sorry mom" Megan cringed she forget that there was a time difference "I just got off of a case and it was kind of an exhausting case and well I forget the time difference"
"Not that I don't love you but is there a purpose behind this phone call other then wanting to speak with me"
"Um actually there is" Here goes nothing "I was um wondering if dad was home"
"He just got home a few moments ago…Megan are you sure?" Natasha asked. She knew that a while Megan was in school and beyond, she and father didn't get along. They barely spoke.
"Yes mom. I need to tell him something"
"Ok, hold on a moment I'll get him for you" Natasha Reeves carried the phone into the kitchen and handed it to her husband
"Who is it?" Daniel Reeves whispered
"Your daughter Megan" Natasha answered and then shrugged in response to her husband's puzzled look
"Hello?" Daniel spoke into the phone still debating whether or not to believe if it was his daughter
"Hi dad, its um me Megan" Megan replied her voice shaking. She hadn't spoken to her father in ten years
"What do you want?" Daniel spoke gruffly. It was two, he was tired, and he didn't really wish to speak to his daughter
"Glad to see you're in a good mood dad" Megan snapped then immediately regretted it. They cant start fighting now
"Megan you have one minute to explain why you called me at two in the morning after ten years on a companionable silence"
"We just got off of a case and well it was a strange one-"
"Forty five seconds"
"Dad, stop it. We called in a consultant and he told me something that I need to find out if it's true"
"God damn it dad! Shut up!"
"Your wasting your time Megan you only have twenty seconds and counting…nineteen, eighteen, seventeen"
"WHY AREN'T YOU TELLING ANYONE YOU'RE SICK!" Megan screamed into the phone all her patience gone
"W-What are you talking about?" Daniel stammered. How can she know? There is no way she can know
"Dad the consultant was a psychic and before you say anything" Megan rushed before her father could speak "listen. He told me that you went to the doctor, a doctor Kaplan and he told you that you were sick but you haven't told anyone. Why dad? Why don't you want mom and everyone else to know?"
Daniel sat there stunned for a moment. He couldn't believe what he was hearing "Because he said that with a few treatments I could be ok. I don't want to worry your mother"
"Tell her dad she deserves to know. Dad, I have to go I um just wanted to make sure that you were um that you were ok"
"Yeah I'm f-" But he didn't get to finish because Megan had hung up already.
A/N: Ok so a quick oneshot, my first one. Hope you liked it.
