A/N: Short, silly, ooc. Whatever.
Morgan knew that Dr. Spencer Reid was a genius. There was no arguing that. Morgan knew Reid had an IQ of 187, could read 20,000 words per minute, had an eidetic memory, and three Ph.D.s. He had other testaments to his intelligence, but Morgan didn't really have time to go over all of them. No, he wasn't going to deny that Reid was a genius.
That being said, Morgan couldn't help but be frustrated by Reid's naivety, from time to time.
As they got onto the jet, having just finished up a case in New York, Reid was eating a gigantic lollipop. A gigantic lollipop a cop from New York had given him. He was wearing a sweater with an argyle pattern, and had put on his glasses in favor of his contacts. It should have been cute: an FBI agent, curled up on the couch in the jet, dressed like a school boy, flipping through his case files, while occasionally licking a giant, brightly colored lollipop. However, thinking back to the attention the cop had given Reid, Morgan could only look at the lollipop with contention. Reid had been completely oblivious, even after the guy had asked him out to dinner.
Morgan took a seat next to Reid, deciding to approach him on the subject. Morgan tried for a light tone, slouching into his seat. "So, uh, Reid, where'd you get the candy?"
Reid took the lollipop away from his mouth, tilting his head to the side as he scrutinized Morgan. "Officer Sanders gave it to me. Why?"
"You don't think it's a little weird that a random police officer who you have never met before gave you candy and asked you out to dinner?" Reid seemed to think about it momentarily, and then his jaw dropped as his face went beet red.
Reid glanced over his shoulder towards where the rest of the team were going over case files or just sleeping, worry mixing into the embarrassment on his face. "You don't really think he was…"
"Trust me kid, he was definitely flirting with you. And he really wasn't subtle about it."
Reid stared at Morgan, wide-eyed, and looking horrified. After a moment, he looked away, putting the edge of the lollipop into his mouth. When Morgan didn't continue, Reid pulled the candy out of his mouth, and muttered, "I'm sorry, I didn't realize he was flirting…"
"It's okay, Pretty Boy. I know," Morgan put his hand on Reid's knee, squeezing it gently. Reid looked up with a smile, and then looked back down at the lollipop. He carefully wrapped it in its plastic wrapper, before setting it down on the table, and leaning against Morgan, resting his head against Morgan's shoulder.
"Are you two going to make out or not? Garcia's been bugging me to get photos for weeks now." Morgan rolled his eyes, and turned slightly, raising his eyebrows at Prentiss, who was sitting two seats away. Reid was turning an interesting shade of pink, and Morgan could feel Reid's face heating up against his skin as Reid buried his face into the crook of his neck.
"Reid won't kiss me in front of other people," Morgan stated dryly. Reid grunted against Morgan's neck, and Morgan knew he was pouting, but didn't pay attention to him. Prentiss got up, and walked over to sit across from Reid and Morgan. Reid moved away from Morgan as she approached, folding his arms across his chest before giving Prentiss a dark look. Prentiss just gave him a neutral look, tilting her head to the side.
"Well, why not?" Prentiss asked.
"None of your business…" Reid muttered, leaning against the wall furthest away from Morgan, his cheeks going red again. "So, let's just drop it."
Prentiss shrugged, and got up, walking away, realizing that Reid was in no mood to be joked around with. Morgan let out a sigh, and scooted closer to Reid, putting his arm around his shoulders, and pulling him away from the wall. "Come on, don't be like that."
"I'm just not…comfortable with public affection….sorry."
"It's okay. It's kinda sweet, how shy you sometimes are."
"Sweet?" Reid asked incredulously, laying his cheek onto Morgan's shoulder once more.
"Incredibly sweet. And cute."
A/N: Alrighty, just so you know, I'll be moving, and starting college soon, and I don't know when I'll be able to get internet, so no knew stories until I get a job in my new town and get internet service.
