Hey everyone, thank you so much again for the reviews. I'm sorry for being so late with this update but my mind has been hitting some walls when it comes to my fanfics but hopefully that is all behind me now.
I'm glad that you all didn't mind the direction I took the story in.
Thank you again for the reviews!
Enjoy and please review
Sorry chapter is short
All mistakes are my own
Reid felt himself pulled from the comforting embrace of sleep, where there was no pain or soreness, he felt himself pulled from it by a soothing and soft hand that he recognised all too well. Reid opened his eyes sluggishly, blinking a few times before he opened them fully to see a comforting smile.
"Lena, he called you," Reid smiled as he looked up to see the woman who had been warming his heart over the last six months, he looked over her taking in her green eyes and brown hair.
"Hey Spencer, I'm here, your friend Morgan called me," Lena smiled. "How are you feeling sweetheart?"
"Like I was hit by a car," Reid smiled sadly before wincing as he tried to move.
"Don't try and move," Lena said as she put her hand carefully on Reid's chest to calm him. Reid looked to the door as Morgan walked in holding two coffees in his hand. Reid watched as Morgan put the coffee on the bedside table and sat on the other side of him.
"Hey Reid, you in any pain?" Morgan asked as he noticed the look of pain in Reid's eyes.
"Yeah..but I want to stay awake. I'm okay...I can handle it."
"Spencer, I don't want to see you in any pain. Please take some pain medication, you need to rest," Lena said as she stroked some of Reid's hair out of his face. Reid closed his eyes and leaned into her touch. He was happy that Lena was here with him now, he was happy that she was with him. He had been happy since he had first met her.
"I want to talk to you. I haven't seen... you in a while," Reid said to Lena before he turned to face Morgan. "Lena was the reason...I left so early. She was home and I wanted to see her."
He could see the look that crossed Morgan's face, he could see the shiver of guilt that ran through Morgan.
"Reid, I'm sorry I hassled you outside the club. I thought that you were having issues again," Morgan said carefully before he looked to Lena.
"Lena, its my fault that he got hurt, he tried calling at me to move out the way but I didn't listen. He saved my life and its my fault that he is in here," Morgan said to her. Reid saw a look cross Lena's face that he was familiar with but had not experienced on many occasions. It was look of anger, a fierce anger.
"Lena," Reid said urgently to try and calm her, a small whimper of pain ran through him. "Don't be angry with him...please!"
Lena bit her bottom lip before she calmed herself down and turned back to face Reid.
"I'm not angry, I just don't like seeing you in pain. I'm going to call the nurse so she can give you something."
Ten minutes later - Morgan
Morgan and Lena watched as Reid fell back to sleep, the pain in his body decreased with the help of medication. Morgan felt Lena's eyes on him and he felt uncomfortable under her gaze.
"He got hurt because of you," Lena said angrily, her voice seething with anger.
"I didn't see the car coming, he called out but I was so fustrated with him that I ignored him, he never told us about you. We thought that he was having trouble at home," Morgan said to try and defend himself against Lena.
"Well now you know why he was rushing home. I had been away for the week and I was arriving home during the night. Instead I come back to find that he has been hit by a car because he supposed best friend ignored his warning."
"Don't you think I feel guilty and angry at myself for not hearing his warning? I've always tried to protect him and the one time that he protected me, he almost died. I'm sorry and I know that you care for him, I'm sorry that he got hurt because of me. I care for him like a little brother," Morgan said as tears threatened to spill from his eyes.
"I don't just care for him, I love him," Lena snapped at Morgan.
"Why didn't he tell us about you?" Morgan snapped back defensively.
"He wanted something away from the BAU, he loves the team but he wanted something away from the FBI. I haven't told anyone in my department about him. We both just wanted to have something away from our places of work," Lena explained.
"Your department?" Morgan questioned.
"Let me explain, in my department I'm known as Detective Lena Mason. Reid and I met in New York when he was exploring the city. I've been away for the last week working on a case, I recently moved in with Reid. I'm currently in the process of being transferred to another department," Lena said earning a look of surprise from from Morgan.
"Reid has never told us any of this," Morgan said quietly as he absorbed all the information that Reid had witheld from the team. "Please know that I'm not leaving his side till he is better."
"That makes two of us," Lena smiled stiffly at Morgan.
Also I want everyone to understand that Lena loves Reid so her anger can be understandable.
