Emily arrived to the BAU the next morning to find that Hotch had already gathered the team in the conference room. Emily still hadn't wrapped her head around all of this: she was pregnant...with her superior's baby none the less...her very hot superior. She and Hotch had decided that coming right out with the news would be the best approach since there really was no way to sugar-coat the situation.
Emily walked into the conference room and was greeted by all her friends. Instead of taking her normal seat she continued to walk to the front of the room and stood next to Hotch, who was patiently waiting for her. After Emily seemed ready, he gave her a reassuring nod and began talking.
"Good morning everyone. You are all probably wondering why I've called you here since we currently have no cases. However, Emily and I have some news we need to share with you." Hotch looked at Emily and smiled, letting her know that it was time to drop the bombshell. 'Well here goes nothing' Emily though to herself.
"I keep thinking of the best way to come out and say this...oh, what the hell...I'm pregnant."
At that moment everyone's mouth dropped to the floor. Garcia immediately jumped up and hugged Emily. Garcia was squealing,unable to formulate words, while the rest of the team was still recovering from the initial shock.
After a few moments of letting Emily's...and Hotch's words register, Morgan was the first to open his mouth.
"Hold up one second. Hotch, you said 'we'...YOU got Emily pregnant?"
Hotch could tell that Morgan was clearly pissed off by the way the muscles in his forehead were contracting, and his hands we balled into tight fists.
"Morgan, listen..." Hotch began.
"No. I...no." And Morgan stormed out of the room.
Emily looked at Hotch and then ran after Morgan.
Emily found Morgan sitting on a bench outside of the building. She wasn't sure what she was going to say to him, if he even wanted to see her, but she started making her way over to him anyway. He was one of her best friends, the brother she never had, and she hated fighting with her family.
"Mind if I sit down?" Emily asked casually.
"You're probably going to anyway." He smiled. At least he wasn't mad at her.
"Emily listen, I'm sorry for walking out back there, but...you and Hotch are having a baby? Since when were you two even dating? What the hell is going on?" He bend forward and started massaging his temples.
"Derek, it's a long story. I'm not even sure where to start..."
"I have all day, and the beginning might be good place." He said with a wink.
"This is going to sound incredibly cheesy, but the only thing I know right now is that I love him, he loves me, and we're having a baby. The whole situation has been complicated since the beginning. It all started the night after we got back from the case in Utah..."
Emily told Derek the story from the beginning up to where they were now, with the exception of the intimate details. How Hotch came to her apartment and they fell into each others arms in a desperate attempt for comfort. How one night of passion could change everything. Emily confided in Derek everything she had been holding inside. All of her fears and concerns since finding out she was pregnant. Before yesterday, she was scared that Hotch wouldn't want anything to do with the baby. That she would have to raise her child on her own.
"It's ok princess, I got you. shhh. Listen, I've known Hotch for a long-ass time and he's one of the greatest guys I know. If he says he loves you, that guy means it with everything he has. And he's an amazing father, you've seen how he is with Jack...haha...soccer dad. Just know, he's going to be here for you and your baby every step of the way. And if for some reason he's not, I'll kick his ass."
"I don't doubt that."
They both started laughing.
Hotch walked outside to see Derek holding Emily's gently sobbing form and felt a pain in his chest. However, that pain quickly subsided when he saw her start laughing. He made his way over to them.
"Is everything alright?" Derek and Emily both stood up.
"Yeah man, everything's fine." Derek reached out and shook Hotch's hand. "Congratulations Hotch. Both of you." And Derek turned and hugged Emily, placing a gentle kiss on her forehead.
"Thanks Derek." and for the first time in a long time Hotch smiled.
"You're smiling." Derek said, actually shocked. Seeing his boss smile was rare, especially since all he's been through.
"Yeah, I've been doing that a lot lately." Hotch said as he looked at Emily.
Derek had a feeling that this was a good thing happening.
When Hotch, Emily, and Derek arrived back at the conference room everyone was waiting for them.
"Well there you are my chocolate god and gum-drop, we didn't know where you two disappeared to." Garcia said in her chipper attitude.
"Me and my girl were just talking missy, no need to worry." Derek responded.
"Emily, I can't believe you're going to have a little one! We're all so happy for you!" Garcia said.
"Thanks guys." Emily smiled.
Out of no where Rossi began chucking. Everyone turned to see what was so funny.
"This is going to send Strauss off the reservation. I'll pay for the kid to go to college if you let me tell her!"
Hotch was sitting in his office finishing up some paperwork when he heard a knock at the door.
"Come in" He said, in his usual automatic tone. He smile when he saw Emily.
"How are you?" He asked.
"I'm good. Today went better than I thought."
"What were you expecting?"
"I'm not really sure. Maybe some shot to go off."
They both laughed.
"It's almost 8 o'clock. Shouldn't you be ditching the paperwork and getting Jack?" Emily asked.
"He wanted to stay at his aunt's house. His cousin's are over for a party."
"What are you thinking?" Hotch asked eying Emily. He always knew when she was up to something.
"Well, the team already went home and Jack and staying with his aunt..."
Emily casually got out of the visitor's chair and went over and locked the door. Then she made her way over and closed the blinds. Hotch, now curious, closed his files and sat back in his chair. He had a feeling where this was going...and he liked it. Emily took out the clip in her hair and began unbuttoning her blouse as she made her way towards him.
Unable to remain seated Hotch jumped out of his seat and captured Emily in a kiss that left them both panting for air.
"Agent Hotchner" Emily whispered seductively "I've been a bad girl..."
