Just new to the world of Criminal Minds so bare with me, really enjoyed writing this chapter and it is only the beginning! Please enjoy! xxx
I stood staring at the door, too nervous to go in. Here I was; a PHD graduate in psychology and anthropology and I couldn't go in to the building where I was starting a new job. What was wrong with me? My dad had told me I would fit right in. God I sounded like I was about to start my first day of high school.
"You know, no matter how hard you stare at it, you have to open it by hand." The male voice startled me out of my day dream. I turned my head to the side to see a man standing holding two coffees. When he saw my reaction he laughed. "You must be Sophie, I'm Derek Morgan. Gideon told me you were starting today so I offered to get you outside." I would be lying if I said he wasn't good looking. He looked like ladies man, but not conscious of it.
"How did you know I was Sophie?"
"Not many pretty 20 year olds stand outside the FBI building for half an hour. Come on, we don't bite...well Garcia might if you ask nice enough."
I couldn't help but laugh. "I'm just nervous, with everyone knowing my dad; the bar is always set so high before anyone meets me."
Morgan laughed again, "and it doesn't have anything to do with you those brains of yours? No. Okay, come meet the gang."
I had to admit that I felt a little more at ease now that I wasn't going in on my own. I was a confident person but like I said, these people knew my dad so I was rather apprehensive. I followed Morgan whilst taking everything in. Everyone seemed to just keep their heads down, wither it be staring at a computer screen or reading a file.
Morgan walked up to a group of people who seemed to be having a heated debate about something.
"You can't tell me that a colour blue is 'bad luck,'" protested a brunette woman.
The other woman in the group, who was dressed quiet eccentric, turned to the brunette "I am telling you, blue is so not good to wear when going to solve a case."
"Blue is associated with death in China, even sweets with a blue wrapper can't be sold because of the significance if the colour." And the geek has entered the building. It was something I did when I was nervous, I just spat out all these facts, and it was not one of my strong points. It also resulted in everyone in the group to turn a stare at me. "Emm...sorry...I shouldn't have butt in."
"Well looks like you are going to fit right in," smiled Morgan. "Sophie, this is the BAU team, this is Hotch, he sorta runs things." Hotch looked like he was in charge, with the typical suit of an FBI agent."This is JJ, our TV personnel. Garcia, Queen of everything technical. Emily, don't say anything sexist. And our genius, Reid, but I think you could give him a run for his money." Reid was kind of cute in a geeky kind of way, he seemed nervous but comfortable at the same time. "Everyone, this is Sophie Gideon."
Everyone continued to stare, only now, they were trying to figure out how I could be related to Gideon. I had long, light brown curly hair, piercing blue eyes and a tall slim build with curves in all the right places. The double of my mum, but looks were the only thing I got from her, the rest was all dad.
"You mean, you are his daughter, Gideon's daughter?" stuttered Garcia. "You, but, wow. Your hot." This made everyone laugh with relief, everyone but Reid, who was staring at his lap.
Hotch was the next to speak. "Guys, since Gideon has left, I thought who better to replace him than his daughter. It's a pleasure to meet you. Gideon didn't give much away about you."
"I could have guessed that. Is it too cheesy to say I'm looking forward to starting work here?"
"You say that now, baby girl, you say that now." Morgan, after giving a coffee to Garcia, put his arm around my shoulder and pulled me into a brotherly embrace. "What is it you have PHDs in again?"
"Psychology and anthropology, why?"
"Cause Reid is now not the only genius."
Reid looked up at the mention of his name but refused to make I contact with anyone. I was automatically on offence because I had a feeling Reid's discomfort was my doing. Suddenly everyone jumped as Garcia exclaimed with glee, "Oh my god! Are those Christina Louboutin's new 24 trous suede boots!"
I looked down at my feet. I was the sort of girl who lasted longer in heels than flats, which was quite tricky sometimes. "Erm...yes."
"They are beautiful, even better in real life!"
"Oh...thanks," Morgan, who still had his arm slung over my shoulder chuckled.
"Garcia is also our fashion guru!"
"So it must be a huge complement if you love my boots then?"
"Of course, and talking about fashion, you cannot wear blue." Garcia demanded, turning back to Emily. They went on with their argument whilst Morgan showed me my desk, which happened to be situation directly across from Reid. I could feel his eyes following every move I made.
Just as I sat down, JJ hung up the phone which I had been oblivious to and called everyone to the meeting room. "Looks like you start your first case pretty soon baby girl."
Well, there are many ways this story could go, so review and let me know what you think. xxxxx
