I'm sure you already know this but I don't own the show Criminal Minds or any of the characters.

The operation had gone down smoothly the unsub was in the custody of the local police and there was nothing left to do but the paperwork. Hotch had stepped across the street to speak to one of the witness. It was Prentiss who first noticed something was wrong.

"Somethings wrong with Hotch." And with those words everything changed.

The rest of the team looked up to see Hotch stumbling across the road clutching his stomach.

Morgan and Gideon took off running at the same time. Morgan got to Hotch just as his knees gave out. Morgan gently lowered Hotch to the ground just as Gideon ran up closely followed by Reid and Prentiss.

"Officer down," Morgan called, to the uniformed officers.

Everyone could see the rapidly spreading red stain from under Hotchs hand.

"Hotch let me see," Gideon said, trying to gently pull Hotch's hand away from the wound.

"It's not so bad," Gideon said, trying to sound reassuring.

"You're a terrible liar. Jason take care of Hayley."

"You're going to be fine," Gideon said.

"Shut up and listen. Derrick I want you to teach Jack to play ball and in enjoy life. Reid show Jack the magic of learning. J.J. teach Jack how to make the right descion even w hen it's tough. Prentiss show Jack how to reach for the stars. Tell Garcia," Hotch paused for a minute. I'm sure there something useful she can teach Jack" Hotch said.

"Where the hell is the ambulance?" Morgan yelled.

"There all tied up with a major accident on the interstate their trying to get on free now," an offerice said.

"Jason tell Hayley I'm sorry and I love her and Jack," Hotch said, closing his eyes.
