Summary: The team has a case in Florida. When they arrive and are greeted by the detective on the case Derek becomes a little too friendly. How does Reid deal with his jealousy and anger at the situation (Spoiler "In Heat" Ep. 3x17).
"Morgan…Derek," introduced the dark skinned agent as he held out his hand to the Florida detective. He was looking her up and down, appraising her openly. Clearly she had something that sung to him because our relationship and I had faded to the background. Well, screw him too. If he wanted to go back to vaginal fluids and breasts who was I to stop him? Besides I had actually come to terms with the fact that eventually Derek would convert back to his heterosexual ways. I was brought out of my musing by the sound of footsteps moving away from me.
I glanced up and instantly my eyes made contact with Derek's. He smiled at me, but I couldn't bring myself to return it.
"What's wrong Pretty Boy?" He moved closer to me with his arm reaching out to me. I quickly stepped back out of range; not ready for the intimate contact that would melt away my pain and anger. Morgan's hand dropped instantly.
"Spence, talk to me. What's wrong?"
"I don't know Derek; maybe we should ask the detective that has piqued your interest to investigate my anger!" My fists clenched and unclenched as I tried to remain civilized.
"So this has something to do with the way I greeted the detective? What's wrong with my introduction?"
"Now we're back to last names?"
"Yes, we're back to last names. Apparently I had work overtime to be allowed to say your first name. But you casually and flirtatiously gave it to the human being with breasts!"
"What has gotten into you Spence? I was not flirting with her! I'm with you! Do you really think that I would flirt with another person? Especially with you around!" Now Derek's rage was coming to the surface.
"Well maybe your instincts are telling you that you made the wrong choice when you slept with me, because you definitely flirted with her. And you know what really sucks? She ate up the attention. She thinks you're interested in her now Derek!"
"No she doesn't, you're just being paranoid."
"Morgan, I saw the way that she looked at you. It's the same look that other women give you whenever you smile, dance, or simply breathe. It's the exact same look that you say I give you. So Derek, is it really paranoia if it is really happening?"
"Pretty Boy, I'm sorry if it seems like I was leading her, or any other woman, on. I want you. I care about you. There is no one else and there never will be." When he reached for me this time I allowed the embrace. Once his arms were around me I instantly felt warm and content. "Forgive me?"
"I forgive you, but the next time you become Derek I'm going to withhold sex for a month."
"Ouch Kid, that's harsh, but I understand. I'm only Derek to you."
A/N: I hope that the fact that this is not a cliffhanger is a good thing. Please R&R! Wow three updates in one night! Well, Until Next Time...See Ya :D
