Enjoy =) and Review
David watched him like a tiger stalking his prey. The pain again ripped through his body and it was getting less bearable by the day. He was never one for big emotions but his mother had always told him, "One day you will find that one person who will throw you off everything you know. That's love…when you can't even look at them with out wanting to be there, next to them, always."
And here was that feeling…after four wives…and he had feelings for the only man he couldn't have. S.S.A Aaron Hotchner.
Reid had found out one day after accidently profiling him and apologizing profusely for it. David calmed the genius with a sad smile, "I know you didn't mean to. Your brain picks up on things that even you sometimes don't want."
So his only ally was Reid and he had a suspicion that Morgan knew too, because Reid had the hots for Morgan, but Morgan was blind.
Hotch was in no form to love someone, not after everything he had been through. It was two years since Hayley's death but Hotch still stayed late, not wanting to go home to an empty bed. Plus Rossi knew he was good looking for an older man, but that's just what he was. Twelve years older then Aaron, who was just starting to reach his late thirty's. He wasn't the top choice in anyone's list.
Rossi tried not to let it show, but it was getting harder everyday. He told himself that he would rather stay and be a friend then leave and never see him again, but the little monster that was inside of him made it hard to be in the same room with the Unit Chief.
A knock on the door and Rossi looked up to see Penelope looking over a file, "Here! JJ said to give you this and meet in the conference room in five minutes."
She waited for him to stand up and grab it and then smiled, "Ok! Call me if you need any wisdom or charm thrust into your life."
Rossi smiled at the oddball of a woman that walked away typing on her phone. He looked over to see Hotch walking to him and he trained his expression, "She's a keeper."
He smiled at Hotch's description of Penelope put into simple terms and he laughed. They made there way to the conference room but Hotch gave him a sidelong glance, his dark as watching him, "Are you okay David? You've been…off for the last couple weeks…"
Rossi felt his stomach clench and his heart race but he just nodded and smiled, "I'm fine. Tired is all."
By this time they walked into the conference room and Rossi turned into profiler mode. No matter what, he wouldn't let his feelings interfere with work.
They were briefed but for a change of pace they were able to work from the office, seeing how it was close to home. Morgan and Reid walked out going to one crime scene while JJ worked the media and Hotch was looking over the older case files. Rossi took to his own devices and went to Garcia's lair.
"I need wisdom and charm, oh great one."
Garcia laughed and turned to him, "And what can I do for you mere mortals."
Rossi smiled and handed her all of her information, "So…I know it's none of my business but…how long do you plan on pining over our lovely Unit Chief."
It took Rossi a minute to react and realize he wasn't going to have a heart attack, then he narrowed his eyes and glared at her, "Reid!"
She giggled, "If it makes you feel better he told me before he talk to you, but it wasn't like he knew...he only half new. If it also makes you feel better, he hasn't told Morgan."
Surprisingly it did and Rossi realized he could fully trust Reid. He waited as she processed all his info and then she refused to hand it over until he answered, "Oh Garcia…no I will never tell him. Don't ask why."
He smiled as she closed her mouth and then he took the files back to Hotch. He was on the phone and then smiled at David, "I'm sorry you went and got the files, Morgan and Reid saw suspicious guy hanging around the media and as soon as Derek went to ask questions he ran. Of course Morgan tackled him…through a window, and now he's being interviewed. We'll no more if they can't get anything out of him."
David immediately wanted to leave the room, no one was around and Hotch seemed a little more relaxed then usual. David set the stuff down and headed towards the door, "well if you need me I'll be in my office and tell me how Morgan does."
He shut the door to his office and sat at his desk, rubbing his temples. He continued some paper work and then looked up when a knock sounded on his door. He prayed it was Hotch and when it opened to reveal Reid, he relaxed.
The lanky genius looked even more awkward then he normally did, wringing his hands together and then hugging his middle, a sure sign the genius was either nervous or uncomfortable.
David smiled at him, "What can I do for you, Spencer?"
The man gulped and sat down, "Can I have a few days off…"
Rossi looked confused, "Why and you know Hotch has to approve tie off, he is the Unit Chief."
Spencer nodded and blushed, "I know but I thought maybe you could talk to him…to ask him I would have to give a reason and…you already know and I…it would b-be…hard to explain and I mean I can ask, if you say no and I d-don't expect favors-."
Rossi cut off the genius, he was worried he might have an anxiety attack, "What happened? Did you kiss Morgan without consent or something?"
Spencer's cheek flared, but he violently shook his head, "No…I just need a little time to think."
"Anything you want to talk about….I've been told I'm a good listener." Rossi watched as the emotions played across Reid's face.
"I kissed him…be he said I could and then I asked him where it was going to go and he said he didn't know and then he flirted with a nurse and I got jealous and now I'm confused…I've never been jealous of another person before…"
Rossi snorted, "Morgan is an idiot. I'll talk to Hotch. Give Morgan a few days Reid…he's got some scars of his own he needs to work through…I mean you can't expect him to be overly willing to sleep with a man when he was…violated by one as a child…"
The thought had crossed the genius's mind but Rossi could tell that he had, finally, probably the only time in his life, let his emotions take the lead. "Listen Reid, it's good to let your emotions have the rein's sometimes, learning when to separate your brain and emotions and when to mix them is the key."
Reid smiled softly at the older man and got up, "What about you Rossi…"
David knew what he meant but he didn't look up from his paperwork, "I'll be just fine Reid…don't worry about me."
Hotch allowed Reid two days off, but continually bugged Rossi on why. "Come on David! If there is something wrong with one of my agents I need to know."
Rossi loved the way he specified them as his agents. A thought struck him, did Aaron think of him as his. The overwhelming emotional pleasure… and physical pleasure caused him to quickly throw the thought out of his head, "There is nothing wrong with him Aaron, like I said before, he just needed time to sort through his big brain and had some things he needed to look into, you know like feeding his cat or something."
"Pretty Boy doesn't have a cat."
Both men looked over to see Derek Morgan leaning up against Hotch's door. Rossi smiled, "Well then."
He started to walk out but Derek stopped him, "Why did he leave Rossi?"
David through up his hands, "he just did! You should know why Morgan."
Morgan looked confused, "What….I should?"
David rolled his eyes, sighing and poked Morgan in the chest, he wasn't afraid to use tough love on his makeshift family, "Yes your pompous, untrusting, homophobic ass, should know."
Derek looked shocked and Hotch had let out a low warning, 'David…' but Rossi continued, "Maybe you should think long and hard about anything you did or said lately and wonder what 'Pretty Boy' could possibly be thinking in that massive brain of his."
It only took seconds for Derek to realize and he gasped, "Shit. Hotch I'll be back."
He took off running towards the elevator and Rossi smiled, "Morgan!"
The man stopped and turned, Rossi winked at him, "By him some candy."
The young agent looked surprised and then smiled, giving him a thumbs up before turning away and running for the elevator.
He looked back at Hotch, "Don't 'David' me." He smiled though letting Aaron know he was kidding and walked back to his office, but heard Aaron not far behind him.
"David what was that?"
He sat down at his desk and sighed looking up at Hotchner through his lashes, wanting to check him out. He knew he only had minutes before his brain would shut off and then he would jump Aaron so he sighed, "I am busy Aaron, but two of your agents just realized something about each other…it just needed a little push."
Hotchner looked confused and then it dawned on him and he looked shocked. David tried not to think about how that was bad, "I didn't even know…"
David smiled picking up some papers, making himself look busy, "I guessed and then he told me. Sorry Aaron but I really am busy."
David looked down at his files and started to write, "David are you mad at me?"
David could feel the tug of his body wanting him to touch Aaron and he tried to reel it in, "No why would you think that. Should I be?"
"No…but I can't help thinking I did something on accident. If we are the only two people in the room you quickly leave and then your very short with me, and only talk to me for short periods at a time. But you have no problem talking with the rest of the team… are you sure?"
David felt the pull even more and he couldn't help but sound rushed, "I'm perfectly positive Hotch, if you will excuse me."
He practically ran to JJ's office, shutting the door behind him. He looked over to see a very surprised Emily sitting on an even more surprised JJ's lap.
Rossi groaned, "Not again…this office is worse then soft porn. So how long?"
Emily was laughing, "Two years."
Rossi smiled, laughing "Ok well keep it G rated in the office shall we?" he walked back out and realized that Hotch was out of his office. He looked at his watch and sighed. He only had an hour and a half, and then he would go home and drink…it was one of those days.
