Please R&R And as always I do not own Criminal minds just the OOC
June and Karen is away visiting family a lot can happen in a few days! Can Sarah ask JJ what she has been trying to ask for weeks?
"Come on Jennifer I don't want to be late" Emily shouted from the kitchen "Not my fault you turned the damn alarm off is it" JJ grumbled as she walked downstairs "I want to make sure everything is you know" Emily said, even though she knew everything was okay, when the day came for the scan Emily was always nervous and slightly agitated. "Right I'm ready" JJ said as she walked into the kitchen smiling softly.
Within 20 minutes they were sat in the waiting room waiting to be seen "Jennifer are you sure about this, I mean I am going to be huge and do you really want to be walking down the aisle with a beach whale" Emily said in a low voice "I am sure and I do not care how big you are you are still so damn sexy" JJ smirked.
So far Sarah and Sandy had managed to find somewhere to have the ceremony and then the reception had become the thorn in their side, Elizabeth wanted it on the estate, Rossi had offered to have it at his mansion and well Emily and JJ just wanted their friends back to their house for a few drinks and some food and right now Emily and JJ were losing with Elizabeth.
"But I am already 6 months, I will be at 8 months then" Emily stated "Well we could always bring it forward so you will be just shy of 8 months" JJ said though it really didn't matter to her as long as they got married. "Well just think about it Emily" she said softly "I just want you happy and I just this whole debating where to have the reception if I am honest, I would rather have the team fussing over us again" Emily admitted
"I still can't believe you gave them a ten thousand dollar budget" JJ said just as the nurse call Emily's name "saved by the nurse she smirked as she got up and started to walk over keeping hold of JJ's hand "Oh you're so not saved Miss Prentiss" JJ teased as they entered the room
"If you would like to lay on the bed and lift your blouse" The nurse said as she smiled, Emily hadn't seen this nurse before and she was a little reluctant, she was uncomfortable with anyone seeing her body, unless it is JJ, JJ held her hand as she looked at the nurse "Can you just give us a moment please" She smiled softly as the nurse nodded giving them some privacy.
"You okay sweetie" JJ said softly as she helped Emily get comfy on the bed "No" she half smiled "I just, well you know" "Em I am sure she has read your notes and I am here okay, you just look at that screen for me" JJ said as the nurse knocked on the door before entering "Are you both ready" she said smiling, Emily nodded her head as the nurse looked at her with some concern "Are you okay Miss Prentiss" she asked as JJ answered "She is okay" the nurse lifted her blouse up revealing the not so small bump, she smiled softly at both women and JJ felt Emily relax slightly.
"Right this is going to feel cold" she said as she placed the gel on to her stomach "The doctor has said if you would like a picture and a dvd of this scan today" she smiled warmly as both women stared at the screen watching the babies move slightly, as their heartbeats filled the room. The nurse laughed slightly as JJ turned to look at her "Have you thought of any names yet" The nurse asked as they both nodded "yeah we have a few picked out" JJ said softly as she watched the screen "Well everything looks good here, they are growing correctly, I would suggest taking it easy now as with twins it puts a lot more strain on your body" Emily nodded
"Is it normal to still have morning sickness" Emily asked as the nurse sighed softly "Some people are lucky and it goes after the first trimester, but some have it all the way through I am sorry to say, as long as you are able to keep some down then it is not a concern" she said. "Thanks" Emily said as she closed her eyes "Had you been given a date for your C-section yet?"
"She said we could leave it till later" Emily said as JJ pulled her blouse over her stomach which in turn made Emily look at the nurse for the first time since she came back in to the room. "Right well if you can just wait here for a few more minutes I will get finish the dvd and you can take it home with you" she smiled as she left the room.
Finally they were on their way back home "Em seriously why did you give them such a big budget" JJ asked as she glanced at her "Because I want the best for you and it is only money, Jen please I want this to be your day so you get your dream wedding, I love you and well you have done so much for me and so much for Sarah" Emily sighed softly "Okay, still not happy about it" JJ mused "Sarah seems to like your mom" Emily said softly "Yeah didn't think she would be okay without you, me or Karen around"
Emily sighed as she sat down as JJ placed everyone a drink on the table before standing behind Emily rubbing her shoulders, Emily turned to look up at her and smiled "Your too good to me sweetheart" Emily said softly as Sandy watched them both carefully.
Though Sarah was the calmer and more placid of the two if someone other the Emily Elizabeth, Karen and now JJ touched her she would either panic or run, with all the changes Sarah had become just as skittish as Emily was when they were alone or with others, though both of them had now settled with the team Sarah still held back she didn't trust them.
Sarah frowned slightly before looking at her mom and JJ "Can I ask you all something, I know…but" she trailed of finding the invisible lint more interesting, "can I well if you want, I mean it's okay to say no but" JJ shook her head "Sarah how many times do I need to say, if you want an answer you have to say what it is so we can reply, worse we can say is no" JJ smirked slightly
And time Sarah wanted to ask JJ something she became tongue-tied and with Sandy there she was worse, but JJ for her part was always patience with her, Sarah sighed slightly as she look towards the door then back at JJ "Want to tell me in private?" JJ asked as she watched her, which earned her a nod "Okay come on sweetie" JJ said as they both walked into the dining room.
"What the matter Sarah" JJ asked "if your mom here and well friends come you think I can, I mean" Sarah paused, JJ smiled softly Sarah was a shy insecure child that needed reassurance and someone to just listen to her and in her eyes JJ was that person, she made her mom happy she had also grown to love her, but also part of her worried when the babies were born and got older they might question why she calls her JJ "So if you well" "Sarah take a breath and slow down okay" JJ said as she placed her hand on her arm.
Sarah took a deep breath and tried to calm down her mind was screaming her to run that she would get hurt, but looking in to JJ's eyes she saw nothing but love and concern "Can I call you ma? And if Sandy lets me gran?" Sarah said looking down at the floor waiting for her to say no, JJ smiled and wrapped her arms around her as she whispered "I already class you as my daughter"
Sarah cried softly hearing JJ's words and letting them sink in, she really did love her like her mom did, JJ rubbed her back as she spoke "Let's go and see what my mom says" JJ smiled wiping the tears from her cheeks "thank you" she muttered as they walked back into the kitchen.
"Is everything okay?" Emily asked as she looked at them both, and she could tell straight away Sarah had been crying she frowned at JJ, but JJ just ignored her for the moment "Mom, Sarah has something she would like to ask you" JJ said carefully as she wrapped her around Sarah's waist giving her support.
Sarah took a deep breath leaning in slightly to JJ "I was, well with JJ and mom getting married" she stumbled over her words badly as JJ spoke softly "You want me to" Sarah just nodded as JJ pulled her closer "Mom, you can say no if you want and we will understand but this is important to Sarah" Sandy nodded looking at a now very shy Sarah and her daughter had a look that said don't you hurt her written across her face.
"Sarah has asked if she can call me Ma" she paused as she smiled at Emily, who now had a goofy smile stretched across her face "And she wants to know if she, well if you will allow her to call you Gran" Sandy looked at them both as she shook her slightly causing Sarah to look at the floor, before she spoke.
Sandy had become very fond of Sarah over the past few days, in some respect Sarah reminded her of JJ's older sister, her shyness and her enthusiasm she had but in she was so much like Emily it was uncanny
"I think that she needs to ask me" Sandy said as she winked at JJ, she got up and walked over to her "Sarah? You have something to ask me?" she said softly "I well" she mumbled still looking at the ground "Can you look at me please" Sandy said as she placed her hand on her arm again, she smiled softly as she didn't flinch this time. Sad brown eyes met soft blue eyes; Sandy smiled at her softly as Sarah looked at her "Well?" she tried again waiting for Sarah to find her voice.
Watching her like this Sandy was reminded of a small child who was scared of rejection, of pain and uncertainty that came with life, but she pushed again "Sarah talk to me, I promise I won't bite" she tease causing the brunette to laugh slightly , she nodded as she finally found her voice "can I call you gran?" Sandy smiled as she answered "No, but you can call me Nan instead, gran sounds old" she teased as Sarah shocked them all as she wrapped her arms around Sandy.
