Don't own Criminal Minds, Morgan/J.J, Hotchner/Prentiss pairings. Enjoy! (:
J.J watched the fire burning in the fireplace, her arms wrapped around her legs, her chin resting on her knees. A tear escaped her eye as memories of Will went flooding through her mind.
"What, are you ashamed of this relationship? Cause I'm not. Look I'll go tell them now, "Hey! I'm crazy about her!" Will yelled out toward the station.
"Can you keep your voice down!" J.J said, keeping her eyes on the ground. He walked away, angry and J.J tried not to cry.
She wiped away the tears and sniffed.
They were watching the sunrise over the hill and Will had his hand on her belly, which was massive. She was 7 months pregnant.
"I never thought I'd have a day where I'd be watching the sun rise with the woman I love, while she's pregnant." He said, laughing. J.J laughed with him and pushed herself closer to him. He wrapped his arms around her even more tightly. She tilted her head back and he put his down.
"I love you." She said, smiling at him.
"I love you, too." He kissed her upside down and then started kissing the ticklish spot in her neck. She laughed and squirmed away from him.
J.J looked down at the ring on her right finger. A promise ring. A promise Will made to her that they would one day get married. But it didn't matter to J.J. She had always felt like he was her husband anyway. She took it off and placed it on her left finger.
"You should take it off." Will said. She sighed. Another delusion. How many more of these would she have?
"I'll take if off when I'm ready to let go of you." She whispered. He knelt down in front of her and kissed her forehead.
"It's been 4 months, J.J."
"And? That doesn't mean anything. It could be four years and I'll still love you." He sighed, but smiled.
"Henry's crying." And sure enough, seconds after his statement, she heard Henry wailing from his room. She got up and wiped away the tears, walking up the stairs and lifting Henry up from his crib. She rocked him back and forth, singing him a tiny lullaby and he went back to sleep after a couple of minutes. Will was watching them from the door, his arms crossed, leaning against it.
"You were always good at that." J.J smiled.
"So were you." He scoffed, walking up to her.
"Hardly, it was torture when he wouldn't shut up." He said, laughing. J.J laughed with him. She lay Henry back down onto his crib and walked out.
"He'll need a bed soon."
"He's not getting a bed until he's at least 3." J.J said. Will laughed. She entered her room and stripped down to her bra and underwear, grabbing PJ's from her cupboard. She looked into the mirror and sighed. There was that horrific reminder of her encounter with Jason 4 months ago. There was a burn mark on her thigh. It was quite small, but the memory would probably be imprinted in her mind forever. Will put his hands on her shoulder, staring at it.
"You shouldn't have gone after him." He said, kissing her shoulder. She sighed and closed her eyes.
"I did. I did, and this is a result. It's minor. But it brought me justice. He's dead."
"And so am I." Will murmured against her shoulder. J.J sighed and turned around, looking into his eyes.
"I wish you weren't." She whispered. He hugged her, wrapping his arms around her and placing one in her hair.
"I know, baby. But in the end, I died protecting my family. That's all that matters to me."
"But now we have to try and move on without you. I have to raise Henry all by myself…"
"If anyone can do it, it's you baby." He kissed her head. She sighed, trying not to cry again. She went into the bathroom, laid her PJ's on the counter, took of the rest of her clothes and hopped into the shower. Will was still with her outside of the shower.
"Keep an eye on Henry." J.J said. He sighed.
"J.J, I'm not real. How am I meant to keep an eye on Henry?" J.J sighed.
"Right, I forgot."
"There's a baby monitor right here, if anything happens, you'll know it."
"How do you know that? You're not real." He sighed.
"You know that, that's why I'm saying it." J.J froze in the shower, confused, but got over it. She hopped out of the shower after 10 minutes and changed into her PJ's. She checked on Henry one last time, saw he was okay, and jumped into bed. Will lay down next to her.
"I love you." J.J whispered.
"I love you too." She closed her eyes and drifted into a dream. A dream where Will was still alive, and the past 4 months had never happened. But that's all it truly was. A dream.
So, do you guys like it? Please review! (:
