Welcome back my loyal followers! You've probably already read this chapter, but I am editing/ changing all the chapters, so you may want to read them over again! I've changed some of the plot and some of the information! I hope you stick around to read! I've also changed the title as well! It was previously known as, How To Save A Life.

Dr. Spencer Reid was never one to have many friends, so his team couldn't help but notice just
how often he was on his phone now a days. Every free chance he had, heD' whip out his blackberry and start texting. On more than one occasion, they caught him smiling and laughing to himself at a message that he had recieved.

It was Friday, and the team was off early and had the weekend free unless a case came up. As the members of the BAU were packing their things, they heard a loud laugh coming from the elevator.

Reid stood propped up against the wall beside the elevator, his phone clutched in his hand, and his head thrown back in laughter. JJ and Garcia shared a look and smiled. Emily smiled as well and the three of them walked over to Reid.

"Invite him." JJ demanded.

Reid looked at her, confused and Emily sighed.

"Invite your friend to the bar with us." she elaborated, gesturing towards his cell phone.

"We need to meet the person you keep talking to." Penelope said excitedly, clutching JJ's arm.

Reid smiled at them and lifted his phone. "You really want me to invite Albert?"

"Yes!" the three ladies said together and burst out laughing. They continued their walk into the elevator, and the men followed behind them, glancing back at Reid who was typing on his phone.

"Hey, Kid...You coming?" Rossi said, holding the door open.

Reid's head snapped up and he walked briskly into the open door.

"Sorry...Got distracted..." he mumbled, typing something on his phone again.

Morgan cracked a smile and nudged him in the side. "Yeah, we can see that."

A faint blush appeared on Spencer's cheeks and he mumbled a soft shut up before turning back to his buzzing phone. Morgan, Hotch and Rossi just shook their heads and smiled fondly at the boy genius.

The team sat in the bar, the music blaring, cups clinking and crashing. It all made Reid more nervous. This was his first time bringing his friend along with the team, and he was nervous about how they'd be perceived Spencer's leg kept shaking up and down and he kept glancing at his phone ever few seconds to see if there was any indication as to when they'd be here.

"Woah, Reid...Chill out man! Why are you so nervous?" Morgan asked, an eyebrow quirking up in expectation. He took a swig of his drink and waited for spencer to answer.

"Nervous...I'm not nervous...Why would I be nervous?" he shook his head and glanced at the door.

"You're not the best at lying Reid, and we can tell when you're nervous...You look exactly like you do right now." Hotch pointed out, and took a drink of his.

Reid sighed in defeat and ran a hand through his hair. "It's just that Albert-" he was suddenly cut off when a hand smaked him on the back of the head.

"Ow!" he shouted and turned around, coming face to face with a short girl glaring at him.

"How many times have I told you NOT to call me that!?" she practically shouted in his face.

Reid's face broke out into a huge grin and he jumped down from the stool.

"Everyone, this is my best friend, Albert!" he claimed proudly. The short girl glared at him and punched him in the arm. Reid grinned cheekily at her and sat back in his seat.

"You're such a shit, you know that Spencer?" she huffed and turned to face the team.

"Hi, I'm Alice! NOT Albert!" she said sweetly and at the end glared at Reid again. He pretened not to notice and went on sippping his drink as if nothing happened.

The team was staring open mouthed at the girl, Alice, before them. She was extremley short, with chocolate brown hair that fell to the small of her back in soft curls. Her bangs were swept to one side and were kept in place by a sparkling blue clip. She had shocking ice blue eyes, and red, full lips on her angel-like face. Her smile was soft, and you could see the little dipples she had on each cheek. She was dressed in a lacy white tank top and a waist high sparkly blue skirt that left little to the imagination.

Alice, still smiling, shuffled her way and pulled a chair up close to Spencer. She leaned over and whispered in his ear. "What are they all staring at?"

Reid laughed and brushed a piece of hair behind Alice's ear. "It might have something to do with when they told me to invite you, they automatically assumed you were a man. They're surprised that I even have a friend. And a woman none the less." he sipped his drink again.

"Well they wouldn't think I was a man if you didn't call me that ridiculous name!" her eyes narrowed at him and Reid only smiled more.

"Awh, but you love it." he cooed and poked her in the cheek.

Alice's nose scrunched up and her eyes softened. "You know I do, Spency." she cooed right back at him and kissed his cheek, then burst into a fit of giggles. Reid joined her and soon enough they were both hugging each other, completley forgetting about the rest of the team.

The BAU team blinked in surprise, but JJ was the first one to break out of her reverie. She smiled at the two and sipped her drink. "So, how did you two meet?"

The rest of the team finally joined JJ and they were all grinning widely at Alice and Reid.

Alice turned her head and folded her hands together on the table.

"Well, we lived just a few doors down from each other on the same street, and we went to elementary together...And college..." she tacked on as an after thought.

"But, Reid went to college at the age of twelve." Morgan said, confused.

Alice smiled softly at him and pointed to her head. "Eidetic memory."

The teams mouths popped open once again, and Alice giggled at them, then got up from her seat to get a drink from the bar. Reid watched with a scowl as several other guys were looking her up and down.

"Reid, how come you never told us about her?!" Garcia demanded, snapping her fingers in front of his face.

Spencer's head snapped back towards her, the scowl still on his face. "I didn't really see the need to..." he downed the rest of his drink quickly.

"But why didn't you tell us she was your girlfreind?" Prentiss demanded, taking the cup away from his hand. Reid sputtered and blinked rapidly. "B-because she's not..." he mumbled and rubbed his hands over his face.

"What do you mean she's not!?" the team all but shouted at him.

"We're just friends...That's all!" Reid said stubbornly, turing in his chair in time to see some guy flirting with Alice. He had his hand on her waist and she was looking up at him.

Reid clenched his hands into fists and resisted the urge to march over there and take her away from him. The man was quite tall, and very muscular. He had black, shaggy hair, and dark brown eyes...Almost black.

Alice put her drink on the counter and turned back to the man. she slapped his hand away from her side and stomped on his foot. She then procceded to pick up her drink and walk briskly back to the table where Reid and his co-workers sat.

"Sorry about that." she muttered and clutched her glass tightly.

Spencer looked at her concered, and grabbed her hand in his. "Are you alright?" Alice smiled softly at him and squeezed his hand. "I'm fine."

Hotch cleared his throat and Alice shifter her attention to him. "Yes, Agent...Hotchner I believe?" she slid her hand out of Reids and smiled warmly at Hotch.

"Yes, but call me Aaron." he smiled at her, which was rare for him. Sitting beside him was Emily, and Alice looked at her with a sparkle in her eye. "You're Agent Prentiss, correct?"

"Emily." she corrected her with a smile. They continued on with introductions until they got back around to Hotch.

"So, what do you do for a living?" Alice's eyes brightened at the change of subject and she pushed her glass away from her.

"I do multiple things, actually." she started out. "I'm a pianist...And a Daycare teacher." she looked around the table at the Agents. "I would love to play for you guys sometime." Alice cleared her throat and started to say something, then closed her mouth.

Reid sighed. It was going to be like this, wasn't it, he thought. "Allie also has 4 PhD's! One in Criminology, one in Mathematics, and one in Pharmacology and Toxicology. She used to own her own pharmacy, for about a year, but then decided to go back to school to get her Phd in Education. She opened her own daycare, which she's had for about three years now. She does that during the day, and she plays the piano at night, because it's her passion. She hopes someday to become a musical sensation." Spencer finished, smirking and doing jazz hands.

Alice wacked him on the arm and turned back to the surprised agents. "I never said that last part. Spencer's just being a shit. I think that's about it, unless Spencer has more to say..." she muttered the ending to herself, although Reid heard her. He opened his mouth to continue but Alice slapped her hand over his mouth.

"I'm sorry...Sometimes he doesn't know when to shut his mouth." she hissed, but didn't remove her hand.

Rossi snorted and took another swig of his drink. "You're telling me. He's just full of facts." he gave the pouting boy genius a small smile.

"Don't I know it! We'll get started talking on something, and he'll just branch off topic and start going on about something else! It can be really annoying sometimes. But thats what I love about him." Alice smiled brightly, her hand still clamped on Reid's face.

Garcia, Prentiss and JJ all shared a knowing smile and even Morgan, Hotch and Rossi noticed what Alice had said. But Reid...Not so much. He was still slouched in his seat, not even attempting to get out of Alice's grasp, until his eyes suddenly sparkled with anticipation. He sat up straighter and listened to Alice chat with the girls for a second, while the guys all looked at Reid curiously.

Slowly, Reid licked his tongue over Alice's hand until it shot off his face, and her nose scrunched in disgust.

"Ewww! Spencer!" she whined and wiped her hand on a napkin. He threw his head back in laughter as the other watched, chuckling and giggling in their own amusement.

Alice suddenly got an idea and before Reid could do anything, Alice was sliding her saliva covered hand across his face.

JJ and Garcia were openly laughing now, and Emily was giggling behind her hand. Hotch was smirking, his shoulders shaking in silent laughter. Morgan joined the girls in their laughing and Rossi just shook his head with a smile.

Spencer turned his head slowly to Alice who was smirking with her arms crossed over her chest.

"Did you just do that?" he hadn't even bothered to wipe off his face.

Alice just nodded and hopped off her chair. "What're you going to do about it?" she taunted him. Reid slid off his own chair, towering over top of her.

"This." his arm shot out to grab her but she simply danced away from him. "Can't catch me." she said in a sing-song voice as she ran her way into the crowd on the dance floor. Spencer chased after her, his team forgotten sitting at the table.

"They'd make such a great couple." Penelope sighed, and took a sip of her drink.

The team nodded and looked in the direction the two of them raced off.

Out in the middle of the dance floor, Alice was weaving in and out of people, with Spencer not far behind. She finally reached the edge of the stage when a pair of hands caught her around the waist.

Reid lowered his head and whispered in her ear, "Got you."

Alice sighed in defeat and turned around. "Fine. Now what do you want me to do?" it was a rule they'd made up when they were kids. If you ever challenged the other to something and they beat you, you must do their one bidding.

Spencer smiled and gestured to the stage where a piano was sat. "You have to play." he stated simply.

Alice narrowed her eyes at him. "I can't just walk up there and start playing! They only have it properly set up on Tuesdays." Reid shrugged his shoulders. "Oh well! You'll just have to make do." he turned around and walked back to his table.

Alice huffed and made her way up onto the stage. She walked over to the DJ and began speaking to him rapidly. He nodded sharply and cut the music. There were grumbles of protest but they were silenced when soft notes of the piano floated through the room.

The team silenced their talking as soon as the first note rang out. They all turned their heads and saw Alice sitting at the piano, her eyes closed, and her fingers started dancing across the keys.

"Woah! She's amaz-" JJ was interupted by a lovely voice, coming from the same direction as the piano.

Heart beats fast

Colors and promises

How to be brave

How can I love when I'm afraid to fall

But watching you stand alone

All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow

One step closer

The team watched in amazement as he fingers floated lazily across the keys, her body swaying back and forth, an a small smile was spread across her face.

I have died everyday waiting for you

Darling don't be afraid I have loved you

For a thousand years

I love you for a thousand more

There was a small break between the next verse, and Alice took the time to flash Reid a dazzling smiled before she turned back to the keys.

Time stands still

Beauty in all she is

I will be brave

I will not let anything take away

What's standing in front of me

Every breath

Every hour has come to this

One step closer

I have died everyday waiting for you

Darling don't be afraid I have loved you

For a thousand years

I love you for a thousand more

Alice's singing became more passionate and her voice bounced off all the walls. Reid stared at her with a mixture of pride and longing in his eyes. The team smiled at how oblivious the two were.

And all along I believed I would find you

Time has brought your heart to me

I have loved you for a thousand years

I love you for a thousand more

She began a small piano solo her eyes focused directly at Reid, she didn't even need to look at the keys anymore. she'd played this song loads of times...Just never with him around.

One step closer

One step closer

Her eyes shifted back to the ivory keys, but her smile stayed in place on her face.

I have died everyday waiting for you

Darling don't be afraid I have loved you

For a thousand years

I love you for a thousand more

And all along I believed I would find you

Time has brought your heart to me

I have loved you for a thousand years

I love you for a thousand more

The song ended on a high note, and everyone burst into applause. A few people started chanting for an encore, and Alice blushed a deep red.

"Did I mention that she sings?" Reid smiled at his team. Their heads whipped around to look at him. "She can also play almost any instrument...But she's best at the piano and the guitar." He gestured to the stage where Alice was setting up for a new song.

She had a Guitar strap around her neck, and the guitar rested in her hands. The DJ brought a microphone over and placed it in front of her.

Alice took a deep breath and began playing her guitar.

Dry lightning cracks across the skies

Those storm clouds gather in her eyes

Daddy was mean ole mister

Mama was an angel in the ground

The weather man called for a twister

She prayed blow it down

Her eyes darkened and her playing became harsher and her voice filled with more passion. Reid suddenly got out of his seat and made his way toward the stage. The team looked at each other and followed him.

There's not enough rain in oklahoma

To wash the sins out of that house

There's not enough wind in oklahoma

To rip the nails out of the past

Alice strummed the guitar harshly and her voice grew louder as the chorus started. Spencer was still weaving his way through the crowd, the team following behind him.

Shatter every window till it's all blown away,

Every brick, every board, every slamming door blown away

Till there's nothing left standing,

Nothing left to yesterday

Every tear-soaked whiskey memory blown away,

Blown away

Blown awaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyy!

Her voice softened after the long note, but her strumming didn't. Her eyes were lit with passion as she looked out across the crowd.

She heard those sirens screaming out

Her daddy laid there passed out on the couch

She locked herself in the cellar

Listened to the screaming of the wind

Some people called it taking shelter

She called it sweet revenge

Alice let a small smirk cross her features as she started the chorus again.

Shatter every window till it's all blown away,

Every brick, every board, every slamming door blown away

Till there's nothing left standing,

Nothing left to yesterday

Every tear-soaked whiskey memory blown away,

Blown away

Blown awaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!

Reid finally made it to the stage and he stared up at Alice with concern in his eyes. Alice looked down at him, tears filling her eyes as she came to the conclusion of the song.

There's not enough rain in oklahoma

To wash the sins out of that house

There's not enough wind in oklahoma

To rip the nails out of the past

Shatter every window till it's all blown away,

(Blown away)

Every brick, every board, every slamming door flown away

(Flown away)

Till there's nothing left standing,

Nothing left to yesterday

Every tear-soaked whiskey memory blown away,

Blown away, blown away, blown away, blown away

The applause was much louder this time, and Alice made quick work of hoppinh of the stage. She landed beside Reid and he immediately pulled her into a hug. Alice buried her head in his chest. The team gave Reid confused looks but he ignored them.

"Allie...It's alright now...He can't hurt you again. I promise you." he said softly, running a hand through her hair.

"I know." she sighed and looked up at him with tear stained cheeks. "Thank you." she gave him a teary smile.

"You don't need to thank me." Spencer smiled softly, completely forgetting his team was watching them.

"Yes I do." Alice stood on her tip toes and pressed a kiss to his lips.

Spencer's eyes widened in surprise, but he wrapped his arms around her waist and pulled her closer to him. Alice wrapped her arms around Spencer's neck and her fingers tangled in his hair. Her eyes fluttered closed and she smiled softly against his warm lips.

They only let go of each other when they heard giggling and squealing coming from behind them. Alice and Spencer blushed at the same time and stepped back. JJ and Emily were laughing behind their hands and Penelope had Derek's arm in a vice grip with a wide smile covering her face. Aaron, Derek and David were smirking at the boy genius as he grabbed Alice's hand.

"Let's go back to the table...Shall we?" Alice said, pulling Spencer behind her. The men patted Reid on the back while the girls all hugged Alice.

"Are you sure you don't need a ride home?" Spencer asked Alice as they stood beside her car.

"I'm fine Spencer. I promise." she kissed him before getting in her car. "I'll see you tomorrow." she closed the door and rolled down her window.

"Alright. See you tomorrow Allie. Text me when you get home, okay?" he leaned down and brushed a piece of her hair behind her ear.

Alice rolled her eyes and sighed. "Fine,fine! Now, I need to get home! I promise to text you!" Reid smiled at her and gave her one last kiss. "Goodnight."

He flashed her one last smile before getting in his car and pulling out of he parking lot. The team had left just a little bit before them, considering the two had been arguing about driving home.

Alice allowed herself a small squeal and laugh as she thought of the nights events. After all those years of crushing, she was finally able to tell...Well show, Spencer her feelings.

She tugged her seat belt on and started the car. Before she could back out of her parking space, she felt something cold on the back of her head. A voice whispered in her ear. "Drive where I tell you to go. Now."

DUN DUN DUNNNNNNNN! I'm sorry if Reid or anyone seems a bit out of character...It's just how I needed to start the story! Hope y'all liked it though! Oh, and I'm only writing this disclaimer once. I own nothing. This will get more explicit, and the language will become harsher...SO BEWAAAARRREEEE!

The songs used were: A Thousand Year-Christina Perri

And, Blown Away: Carrie Underwood
