"Ow, jeez friggin' butcher." Rachel grumbled. The doctor apologized and left the hospital room. Rachel's arm was in a sling, and she was laying in a hospital bed. She had passed out earlier, and really freaked out Spencer. She had just gotten out of surgery and wanted to tell him she was sorry but, she guessed she'd have to wait a little while longer.
"Hey." Rachel looked up and grinned. Spencer was standing in the doorway, a singular red rose in his hand. He stepped forward and handed it to her. Rachel blushed.
"You're too sweet." She said. He shrugged.
"It was Morgan's idea." He smiled. She laughed.
"Well I guess it's the thought that counts." She said. He sat down next to her, concern in his eyes.
"Are you okay?" He asked. She nodded. She wrapped her arm around his neck and hugged him tight.
"Now I am." She said. He blushed.
"You really scared the crap out of me." He said.
"Yeah, I scared the crap out of me too." She admitted. "I really thought I was a goner." Spencer swallowed.
"Me too." He said, they broke apart.
"Ya know, I gotta go back to New York soon." She said. He looked down and nodded. "I don't want to go."
"Can you take a few days off?" He asked. She looked up at him. "And just, come back to Quantico with me for the weekend?" Rachel grinned broadly, butterflies in her stomach. Spencer was shocked he got the words out.
"I think I can swing that." She said. She leaned forward and kissed him gently. They broke apart and he sighed.
"You can come in now." He said. Morgan, J.J., Prentiss and Rossi came around the corner. Spencer cocked an eyebrow. "Why are you here?" He asked Rossi.
"I thought he was lying." He tilted his head toward Morgan. "And curiosity got the best of me."
"Wow," Rachel said. "That wasn't out of character." She said.
"You doin' okay?" Emily asked. Rachel nodded.
"Yeah, I've had worse. And this is like the second time I've been shot in the chest." She noted. "And at least it was my left side."
"Well thank god." J.J. said. Morgan grinned.
"I, I couldn't help but overhear that somebody might be coming back to Quantico with us." He said.
"Yeah she is." Spencer said. "I mean, if that's okay." He added.
"Yeah yeah, that's fine. I wouldn't have it any other way." Morgan said. "Knock yoursel out." Spencer rolled his eyes.
"Funny." Spencer said.
"Well uh," J.J. said. "You know Garcia has been dying to meet you." She giggled.
"And I have been dying to meet her."
They arrived at Quantico a few hours later. Rachel was ecstatic. She had never been to the bureau's main office. The place was an average looking office building, and she picked out Spencer's desk immedeately.
"How'd you guess?" He asked.
"Because there isn't a single paper in a place it's not supposed to be." She added. She looked around, watching the people dart back and forth.
"Oh my god." A voice said behind her. She turned to see a short blond woman behind her. Her glasses were hot pink, her shirt a combination of the same pink and orange. Her slacks were black and her hair was pulled into spiked pigtails behind her head. "Please tell me you're Rachel." She said.
"I am. Are you the great Penelope Garcia?" She asked. Garcia grinned.
"That I am." She extended her hand and shook Rachel's. "Reid," She said in a semi-whine. "Why didn't you tell me she was gorgeous?" Spencer blushed.
Rachel grinned. "And so are you." Garcia's grin broadened.
"That's it Reid, I'm keepin' her." She said. She grabbed Rachel's unwounded arm and pulled her down the hall.
"Hey." Spencer said. Garcia looked over her shoulder.
"Girl talk." She said. "No boys allowed." J.J. and Emily followed shortly.
"Oh boy." Spencer sighed. Morgan put his hand on his shoulder.
"You're in trouble kid." He said, laughing lightly.
"Slow down, slow down." Rachel said. "One at a time I can't answer all of your questions at once."
"Okay, I'm the shortest I go first." Garcia said. "Is he boring on dates?" Rachel shook her head.
"Nope, not at all."
"If another guy hits on you, what does he do?" J.J. asked.
"Outsmart them and they leave...after I talk him out of hitting them." Rachel admitted.
"Aw," The other girls chimed.
"Okay," Emily said. "Is he even remotely romantic?"
"He's working on it." Rachel shrugged. Garcia bit her lip and hesitated for a moment.
"I'll bet he's a bad kisser." She said quietly. Rachel's eyes grew.
"I would have to say, now remember I've kissed quite a few guys in my life and he left them all in the dust." Garcia wasn't sure what her answre was, Rachel continued. "He is the best kisser I've met in my life."
All of them giggled hysterically.
"Oh man I knew it!" J.J. said. Garcia's face was red and she was holding her sides.
"Oh my god." She laughed. "This is SO blackmail later."
Rachel did leave a few days later, she promised she would visit and he did the same.
"Oh I always hate this part." She admitted. Spencer nodded.
"Yeah, me too." He said. She hugged him as tightly as she could. "I'll miss you." He said. She sniffed, fighting back the tears that had appeared in her eyes.
"I'll miss you too Spence." She let go and looked at him. His face was still bruised from a few days before. He leaned forward and kissed her.
"I love you." he said.
"I love you too."
