That was a sweet missing scene that I would have loved to see in the actual episode.
Thank you for sharing this.

But this is sweet! In many way... though sad too mostly...

I can just picture Reese and Leila fast asleep, Reese slightly vulnerable. It says a lot that he trusts Finch enough to allow himself to do that.
Not to mention a very sexy image. ;-)

Awwww, Reese holding the baby and sleeping. *sob* So beautiful.
In your third paragraph, you have the word "traks." It's spelled "tracks."

This was absolutely wonderful! "Baby Blue" is one of my very favorite episodes of POI, and this was a really great "missing moment" to that episode. Sweet, melancholy, and funny as well. Very well done. I'm adding this to my favs. Thanks for writing!

This was so sweet! I barely remember this episode, thanks to a defective DVR payer and the inability to find episodes online.
I DO remember the supermarket scene with Carter and Finch...too cute!
Also how Finch panicked when he found the baby with a gernade, even though it was ONLY a tear gas gernade.

This was an idea I always had about that episode...we didn't get enough of an insight to how Finch felt about the lack of a "conventional life" but he must've felt a longing just as bad as Reese's.
It's portrayed very nicely in here.
Thank you for posting this story.

Aw, thank you for calling me amazing. :) *blushes* And I rather enjoy editing. :D I'll do it any time. :) Sorry it took me a while to read this after it was posted. I've been extremely busy lately with school. DX'
I saw that this should be: ""What? You mean this isn't the first time you've kidnapped A baby?"" This should be: "As he finally reached the room they used as base he looked around, FINDING no sign of Reese and Leila." :) I believe you mean: "He sounded ASLEEP with his arms protectively surrounding Leila's small frame as she slept atop his chest." :) And this: "This moment, holding in his arms a kidnapped baby in a dusty, old library that supposedly did not EXIST." :) Should be: "He himself had never longed FOR a child." :) Should be: "he wouldn't change HAVING Will in his life for anything." :) Loved that you inserted that part. I loved it. :D *heart* This: "They still didn't know why the machine had given them Leila's number, who wanted to get rid of her or why." Should have a , after the her. :) And all the Capslocked words are the ones to be changed, by the way. :) Though I'm sure you realized that. :) Loved it, and thanks for making me your Beta. I'm honored. :D

This was both lovely, and introspective. I personally fell in love with Mr. Reese all over again in this story.
Sleeping with baby Leila tucked in his arms? AND his gun sitting on the table within easy reach, yes, I can believe that. This was a wonderful read!

Aww John sleeping with Leila how cute! Great job!
| Simpleinsanity chapter 1 . 4/16/2012
