As I was watching Criminal Minds the other day, and for whatever reason, this popped into my head... hope you enjoy!


'Penny?' Kevin called as he pushed open the door, even as he knocked.

Garcia looked up from the word puzzle she was working on, and gave Kevin a bright grin.

'Hey, what are you doing here?' she asked, getting up to great him.

'Can't a guy visit the prettiest girl in the world just because?' he asked, pulling her into his arms.

She narrowed her eyes, 'have you been taking lessons from Morgan?'

His eyes widened in surprised innocence, 'am I that obvious?'

'Just a little,' she replied, holding her thumb and forefinger a little ways apart. 'But that's okay, it makes you kind of adorkable.'

'Adorkable?' he repeated, sounding mildly offended.

'Adorable, in a dorky kind of way,' she offered, pulling him to the couch.

He was nodding in satisfaction, 'I can do adorkable.'

'Good, because, seriously, not that I'm complaining, but why are you here? Shouldn't you be working or something?'

'I couldn't wait.'

'Couldn't wait for what?'

'You are amazing, Pen, and I love everything about you,' he dropped down to one knee.

'Oh you better be doing what I think you're doing or else I'm going to call Morgan and Reid, and I don't know what Reid can do, but Morgan has a mean right hook, and he used to play football.'

Kevin looked a little nervous, but he didn't let that detour him, 'I know this isn't exactly the most romantic thing in the world, but I couldn't wait for that special moment because I'm nervous as hell but I need to know.'

'Need to know what?'

'Will you marry me?'

Garcia knew it was coming, but still her voice caught in her throat, and then he managed to pull the small velvet box from his pocket, and all she could do was nod.
