Author's note: I hope you all enjoy this one. Its just something that my muse has been shouting in my direction for a while.

She felt the breeze blow through her hair, as she swung her legs in the space below the branch she was perched on. She leaned back and laughed as she realized just how free she felt. On top of the world. Her high came crashing down as she heard a shrill ringing, and jumped from the tree, knowing the phone needed answering. She landed hard, and awkwardly on the ground, and couldn't quite move right. She didn't understand what could be obstructing her movements, when seconds ago she was free...
Emily Prentiss fought against her sheets as she tried to get to the phone, wondering when she had ended up on the floor. She glanced at her clock, squinting to determine what the glaringly bright red lights were shouting at her.
"This had so better be good, Jareau." Emily growled into the phone as she answered it.
"Em?" JJ breathed, obviously trying to be quiet.
"Jayje?" Emily was instantly alert.
"Em, I need a huge favor from you. I'd ask Pen, but..." She paused. "You're the only person I trust with this." JJ was whispering, and it was throwing Emily for a loop.
She untangled herself, and stood, yawning as she tried to clear her brain.
"Jayje, what do you need?" she asked, getting just a little irritated in her tired state.
What JJ said next pushed all thoughts of sleep from Emily's head.
"I need you to come. Here. I need you to come get Henry."
"JJ, whats going on? Why are you whispering? What's wrong?" Emily asked, more than just a little confused, and JJ was really starting to scare her.
"Will and I are—" JJ was cut off by a crash and suddenly Emily felt her blood run cold.
"Jennifer what the fuck are you doing?" She heard Will yell, and then she heard a baby wailing further in the background.
"I'm getting my son to a safe place, because this obviously isn't one!" She heard JJ yell, and a sickening smack, and then another crash, like that of the phone falling.
Call Disconnected flashed on her screen, and Emily flew into a frenzy. She pulled her shoes on, grabbed her keys and her phone and raced to her car. Cursing how far away from JJ she lived, she pulled out onto the main road and tried JJ's cell phone again. When the blonde didn't answer, Emily shook her head and stepped on the gas.
"Speed Limits be damned." she thought.
