A/N- So here is the epilogue. I hope everyone enjoys this final part of the story. Thanks again for all the reviews. I truly love all my fans.
"Jennifer Anne Jareau I know you're in there now open up!" Emily shouted as she banged on Garcia's door.
"Damn it!" JJ groaned. "She found me."
"Trouble in paradise?" Garcia laughed.
"Very funny Garcia; you have no idea how crazy that woman has gotten. I mean she's certifiable."
"I can hear you in there Jennifer! I can hear you talking, now open this door." Emily yelled through the door.
"Ugh!" JJ groaned, letting her head fall against the table; while Garcia went to open the door.
"Finally!" Emily all but shouted. "Why are you hiding?" Emily demanded to know.
"Well good afternoon to you too." Garcia laughed sitting back down.
"I'm sorry Garcia. How are you?" Emily said completely ignoring JJ now.
"I'm good and how are you and my future god daughter?" Garcia smiled as she looked at Emily's very large 8 and a half month pregnant belly.
"She is great. Although she is more than slightly irritated at her mommy right now." Emily said, turning her glare on JJ.
"OH Isabella is irritated at mommy? Are you sure its not you who is irritated with me right now?" JJ asked finally raising her head from the table.
"Well now why would I be irritated at you? Could be that I have been running around the BAU for an hour looking for you or…"
"Running?" JJ snickered, but immediately regretting it.
"Are you calling me fat Jennifer?" Emily snapped.
"Of course not sweetie. You're not fat. You're pregnant and you're beautiful." JJ quickly tired to smooth the choppy waters.
"Well I don't feel beautiful, especially after last night."
"What happened last night?" Garcia asked.
"JJ fell asleep on me." Emily explained.
"First of all it was 4 in the morning and second of all, I hardly left you hanging. I think we both went to be well satisfied last night!" JJ said jumping up from the chair. "Besides I'm sure Garcia does not want to hear about our sex life!"
"Oh no by all means continue." Garcia smirked.
"Not helping Garcia." JJ said through gritted teeth before turning back to her wife. "So why were you looking for me?"
"I want some Aunt Ruth's chocolate covered cherries." Emily stated as if it was a simple request.
"Excuse me? You want what?" JJ asked not sure if she heard Emily right.
"I said I want some Aunt Ruth's Chocolate Covered Cherries."
"But Emily honey, the closet store is over an hour and half away."
"You can't be serious?" JJ replied back in shock. "There is no way Hotch is going to let me leave in the middle of the day just to get you some candy."
"Fine!" Emily snapped and stormed out of Garcia's office. Once she was gone JJ flopped back down in the chair.
"God this baby better come soon or I think she might kill me. That or I'm going to kill her. Please tell me I wasn't this bad when I was pregnant with Henry?"
"Not even close sweetie. But it will all be worth it when Isabella finally arrives."
"I know, but I swear this pregnancy has distorted her brain or something. She gets crazy cravings at all times of the day and they usually involve me and a long distance drive. She never craves stuff I can buy at the local supermarket. Last month she ordered some fancy swiss chocolate and had it over nighted to the house. Do you know how expensive that is? And don't get me started on the hormones. One minute she's crying, then she's yelling and before I can even figure out why she's mad she's ripping my clothes off. I can't take much more of this." JJ complained to her best friend.
"Just hang in there sugar bear, it will all be over soon." Garcia said trying to mask her laughter.
"You're enjoying this aren't you?" JJ asked as her phone rand. "Agent Jareau… No sir…. Yes I understand but… no I didn't mean too…. Of course sir."
"Everything okay?" Garcia asked after hearing the short conversation.
"Apparently I have been given a direct order from my boss to get my wife some Aunt Ruth's Chocolate Covered Cherries."
"That was Hotch and it seems my lovely wife went to him crying and told him that I was refusing to go and get her the candy."
"She didn't?" Garcia replied back in shock.
"Oh but she did." JJ groaned. "Looks like I'm going for a little drive."
"Good luck." Garcia laughed as she watched JJ leave her office.
An hour later JJ was well on her way to Aunt Ruth's Candy Shop thinking about how much her life had changed over the last year and half and although her wife was currently making her life a living hell she wouldn't change a thing. The first couple months after JJ was released from the hospital were the hardest. JJ was frustrated with her new found limitations as well as struggling to keep her and Emily's new relationship afloat. A weaker couple would have crumpled under the pressure but Emily had been her rock. She was her shoulder when she needed to cry and she was her venting board when JJ became frustrated with her lack of progress at physical therapy. Needless to say it was a long two months, but luckily it only made their relationship stronger and after only 5 months JJ proposed to a shocked but extremely happy Emily. It didn't take long for the subject of children to come up either. They both wanted more; neither wanted Henry to be an only child. It took several attempts but in the end Emily ended up pregnant and JJ couldn't have been more thrilled. She couldn't wait to meet their little girl and if dealing with a crazed hormonal Emily was the cost she would pay it a thousand times over.
Meanwhile back at the office Emily was sitting at her desk when she felt a sharp pain in her lower back.
"Ouch!" Emily yelped as the pain shot through her back.
"You okay over there Emily?" Hotch asked as he came out of the break room with a fresh cup of coffee. Reid, Rossi and Morgan were all at a Profiling Class for new recruits, so it was just Emily, Hotch and Garcia in the office.
"Yeah, I think so. Isabella is playing soccer with my kidneys." Emily explained. "I think I'll get up and walk around a bit." Hotch nodded and headed for the stairs to his office. He reached the second stair when Emily yelled his name. Hotch turned around to see a very panic faced Emily staring at him.
"I think my water just broke." Emily replied looking down at the puddle of water around her feet.
"Wow, ok… ok… we can do this." Hotch said as he jumped off the stair case and raced to Emily's side.
"We need to call JJ." Emily groaned as her first true contraction ripped through her body. "Oh my god that hurt!" Emily shouted.
"Hey, what's with all the noise in here?" Garcia asked as she walked into the bullpen. "I can hear you all the way down the hall."
"Emily's in labor." Hotch explained as he opened his cell phone and dialed JJ's number. Hotch groaned when it rang four times and went to voice mail. "Damn it!"
"What?" Emily asked as she tried to focus on her breathing.
"I got her voice mail." Hotch explained as he listened to JJ's message. "Hey JJ its Hotch, Emily's in labor and so I thought you might want to turn around and head back home. Call me when you get this message."
"Why isn't she answering?" Emily asked torn between being worried that something might have happened and furious that her wife wasn't answering her phone.
"I'm sure there is a logical reason for her not answering." Garcia said trying to get Emily to relax. "Now why don't we worry about getting you to the hospital and then we will try JJ again?" Emily nodded as the three made there way towards the elevator.
Thirty minutes later JJ pulled into the Aunt Ruth Candy Shop parking lot. She picked up her phone and was shocked to see that she had five missed calls. Two from Garcia and three from Hotch. Oh this can't be good, JJ thought to herself. JJ looked at her phone and found that she must have hit the vibrate button at some point and not even realized it. Deciding to not waste time with the voice mails JJ went ahead and dialed Garcia's number.
"It's about time!" Garcia snapped into the phone when she answered. "Where have you been?"
"Where do you think I am? I'm at the candy store like my wife requested. Oh please don't tell me she changed her mind? What's it now, flowers from Spain or imported water from the Alps?" JJ asked half joking, half serious.
"Emily's in labor." Garcia blurted out.
"She's what?" JJ exclaimed as she ran back towards the car.
"Her water broke about thirty minutes ago. If I were you I would get your that FBI issue SUV, turn on those little blues lights on and get your cute little ass back here."
"I'm pulling out of the parking lot right now."
"Ok, just hurry."
"I'll be there as soon as I can. Tell Emily I'm on my way." JJ closed her phone and flipped on the emergency lights; leaving a trail of dust behind her.
"Where the hell is she Hotch?" Emily yelled as another contraction hit her. "It's been over an hour."
"She's coming. She'll be here in no time." Hotch said trying to calm Emily down.
"Why the hell did you let her go anyways? What kind of boss lets his employee leave work in the middle of the day like that?"
"Because you asked me too." Hotch replied only to get a death glare from Emily. "Here, how about some ice chips?"
"I don't want any damn ice chips!" Emily yelled smacking the cup out of Hotch's hand. "I want my wife!"
A few minutes later a very young, fresh out of school nurse walked into Emily's room. Hotch immediately felt sorry for the young girl.
"How's everything going in here?" She asked a little too perky for Emily's liking.
"Who the hell are you?" Emily snapped.
"I'm Michelle, I'm your nursing assistant. Is there anything I can you or your husband?"
"Oh you have got to be kidding me?" Emily groaned as another contraction came and went. "My whole life I was looking for a husband, then I finally marry a woman only to end up with a husband in the end. Ironic don't you think?" Emily said looking up at Hotch, but before Hotch could respond Emily's nurse walked into the room.
"How are you doing Emily?"
"Oh I'm just peachy!" Emily snapped.
"Well I need to check and see how far dilated you are? Sir do you mind stepping out of the room for a second." The nurse asked Hotch, who was practically out the door before she finished asking.
"Hotch, how is she?" JJ asked as she came running down the hallway.
"Oh thank god!" Hotch said hugging JJ tightly. "She's well, she's Emily." Hotch smirked. "The nurse is checking her dilation right now."
"Okay good. How far along is she?"
"Last time they checked four centimeters."
"Good, I was so nervous I was going to miss it." JJ smiled.
"Ok now that you are here I'm officially turning over my husband duties to you." JJ looked up at Hotch with confusion. "Don't ask."
"Thanks for being here with her Hotch. I really appreciate it."
"You're very welcome, but let me make one thing very clear. If you ever get Emily pregnant again I will kill you." Hotch glared down at JJ.
"Well sir, I mean you know I didn't actually get Emily pregnant. I mean well technically I guess you could say that…"
"Spare me the details JJ. All I'm saying is that the next time you two decide to have a child, if its not you carrying that child we, meaning the whole team, will kill you. We can not and will not go though this nightmare again. Do I make myself clear?"
"Yes sir." JJ replied back trying to suppress a laugh. She knew that Emily had been making her life hell but she had no idea how bad everyone was getting it. JJ had never seen Hotch this frazzled before.
"Now having said that, I'm happy for you two and I can't wait to meet our newest addition to the BAU."
"Thank you Hotch." JJ smiled and gave Hotch another hug.
"Are you Emily's wife?" The nurse asked as she exited the room. JJ looked into the room and watched as Emily began terrorizing the nursing assistant. JJ couldn't make out what she was saying but she had the poor girl on the verge of tears.
"Nope." JJ replied back as seriously as she could.
"JJ?" Hotch asked back in confusion.
"No, you see my wife is a calm, rational, sane woman. That," JJ pointed through the door window at Emily, "that woman is nuts!" To which the nurse and Hotch both laughed.
"Well hopefully now that you are here she can relax a little." The nurse continued to laugh.
"I wouldn't be so sure about that." JJ smirked. "How far along is she?"
"She's at 6 centimeters. She's progressing rapidly for a first time birth."
"Thank you." JJ took a deep breathe and walked into the room. She was met with a teary eyed nursing assistant who was fleeing the room.
"Finally, where have you been?" Emily demanded to know.
"Well I was two counties over getting candy for my wife?" JJ replied as she walked up to Emily's bed. "I'm sorry that I didn't get the calls. I must have put the phone on vibrate by mistake." JJ said as she sat down on the edge of the bed and took Emily's hand.
"And where are my chocolate covered cherries?"
"Oh you have got to be kidding me." JJ groaned. "I never went inside. As soon as I called Garcia I jumped back in the car and sped all the way home."
"Figures." Emily huffed. "I give you one simple task…"
"Okay that's enough Emily. I love you more than life itself but right now you are driving me insane. I mean literally insane."
"I'm sorry sweetie, you're right." Emily gripped JJ's hand as another contraction ripped through her body. "I was just so scared you weren't going to make it, but I'm glad you're here now." Emily smiled as JJ leaned over and gave Emily a kiss on the forehead. "And I'm sorry I've been so crazy the last couple months."
"Nine months. The last nine months." JJ added.
"Okay so maybe I didn't handle it very well."
"Honey, our boss just threaten to kill me if I even thought about letting you have another child." JJ laughed.
"Okay, okay point taken." Emily groaned through another contraction. "God this hurts!" Emily said through gritted teeth. "Why didn't you tell me it hurt this much?"
"So when I was here cursing Will's entire existence when I was having Henry you thought what? I was having fun?" JJ teased as she wiped the sweat from Emily's forehead.
"But it feels like my body is being ripped in two." Emily moaned.
"Welcome to motherhood." JJ smiled.
"So I haven't heard any more screaming from Emily's room, you don't think she killed JJ do you?" Garcia asked the rest of the team that was now gathered in the waiting room. It had been over an hour since JJ walked into Emily's room.
"Don't be silly, she didn't kill JJ." Rossi offered with a slight laugh. "At least I don't think she did." Rossi added after rethinking his earlier statement.
"Hey guys." JJ smiled as she walked into the waiting room.
"Oh thank god." Garcia said as she jumped up and pulled JJ into a hug. JJ just stood there confused as to what was going on.
"Garcia thought maybe Emily had killed you." Reid explained.
"Very funny guys." JJ laughed as Garcia sat back down. "Emily is doing much better now, although she's hit a lull. She progressed really quickly but when she hit 6 centimeters she slowed to a halt; much to Emily's displeasure." JJ sighed, running her hand through her hair. "But I did convince Emily that maybe natural child birth wasn't for her, so the doctor is in there now giving her some wonderful drugs." JJ smiled.
"I'm sure the nursing staff thanks you." Hotch replied.
"Yeah, they are all pretty grateful. Anyways, the doctor said it might be several more hours; so I just wanted to give you an update."
"Thanks, we'll be right here waiting." Morgan smiled.
Four long hours later the team looked up to see JJ running down the hallway.
"It's a girl!" JJ beamed as she received a round of hugs from the team and her parents who had arrived with Henry. "You hear that little man, your sister is here." JJ smiled as she took Henry from her mother.
"Baby?" Henry asked.
"That's right. Your sister." JJ said tickling the now three year olds tummy.
"I got new shirt." Henry smiled proudly, showing his mommy his "I'm a big brother" shirt.
"I see that." JJ laughed. "So do you wanna meet your little sister."
"Yea!" Henry cheered.
"The nurse said everyone could come back for a little. A thank you for calming Emily down earlier." JJ laughed.
"Lead the way." Larry Jareau said; beyond excited to see his new grand daughter.
"Hey sweetie I brought back some visitors." JJ smiled as she entered the room. Seeing Emily sitting there with their daughter in her arms was one of the most beautiful things in the world. JJ sat down on the edge of the bed so Henry could get a closer look.
"Hey Henry, can you say hi to Isabella?" Emily asked.
"Hi Bella." Henry replied; staring in awe at his little sister. "I love you." Henry added before turning to bury his face in JJ's chest. Immediately tears fell from JJ and Emily's face.
"And she loves you too little man." Emily said ruffling the little boy's wild hair.
"She's beautiful Emily. I mean absolutely stunning." Larry said looking down at the little girl in Emily's arms.
"Oh I agree." Garcia added. "So did you decide on a middle name yet?"
"Yeah, finally." JJ laughed. "Here name is Isabella Morgan Jareau. Bella for short."
"Really?" Morgan asked back in shock.
"You're my best friend Morgan and I couldn't think of a better name for our daughter." Emily smiled.
"Well I'm honored guys. Truly touched." Although he would deny it till the day he died Emily swore she saw a tear run down his cheek.
Several hours later, once Bella had made her way into everyone's arms and now snuggled safely in JJ's protective grasp, Emily lay there just staring at her wife.
"I can't believe we have a daughter." JJ smiled looking down at the perfect little baby in her arms.
"I know. It's amazing." Emily said fighting off a yawn.
"Why don't you get some rest?"
"I'm afraid too. I'm afraid I'll wake up and this will all have been a dream." Emily said as she closed her eyes; the exhaustion taking hold.
"It's not a dream I promise." JJ replied back. "Go to sleep and we'll be here when you wake up."
"You promise?" Emily asked as she started to fall asleep.
"Always and forever." JJ replied back with a huge smile as Emily drifted off to sleep.
A/N- Okay so since we always see JJ pregnant I thought it might be funny to see Emily pregnant. I hope everyone liked it. PLEASE REVIEW!
