As ever I do not own criminal minds they belong to their rightful owners at cbs…
Set around season 4, if you haven't read my others you may want to since all of them carry on from each other… as ever please R&R
JJ arrived at work locking herself away in her office, to say she was in a bad mood was the understatement of the century, due to the fact right now she was glad her wife was on an assignment with Reid because in truth she wanted to kill her, not with a gun but a slow and painful death seemed to be very fitting after the conversation they had, had that night before she flew out to Colorado,
Emily had been back a week and within that week Emily had managed to upset and piss JJ off it wasn't the fact she was back at work within a month and a half or the fact that her surgery was coming up in a couple of months, it was the fact that Emily had spent every night in her study, not in bed next to the women she loved, Emily had begun to pull away from her from their children and all JJ could do was watch.
JJ for her part had spent that week locked in her office at work and snapping at anyone who dared to walk in, Emily spent the days at work quite as she worked on the consults on her desk, which the finished stack was piled next to her as she didn't dare to take them up to JJ. Morgan had tried to joke but Emily had cut him off just as fast.
The tension in the BAU bullpen was thick and Hotch doubted a knife would be able to cut through it. So when an undercover assignment came up he decided to send Emily and Reid undercover in an attempt to allow the two women some time apart before things got much worse
They had received a tip about an local underground cult 'Ranch' that children were being abused, but since the caller never gave a name only that she saw it happen, child services had been called and with that so had the FBI.
As they drove towards the 'Ranch' they ran through the phone call which took place, the caller said she was 15 which fit with the Jessica's description "So what do we know about the leader of the compound" Emily asked
"Benjamin Cyrus no criminal record, no record at all really" Reid said as he looked down at the file as Emily spoke to Nancy "with their view on outsiders it would best if you didn't introduce us as FBI just use our real names and introduce us as child victim interview experts"
Emily paused as they pulled up outside the Ranch house where they meet Cyrus, who was sitting on the wall buy the steps "The children are in the school, I will take you to them" Reid paused for a moment before following them up the stairs "You using solar panels?" he said to Cyrus "you sound surprised" he commented as he looked Reid over "Not surprised impressed" he replied with a slight smile before starting to walk up the steps again.
Once inside Emily interviews a young girl at a school desk. "We received a phone call alleging that an adult male member of your church was having inappropriate relations with the younger woman here," Before the girl answers Emily explains that the reason for their visit has nothing to do with the community's religious beliefs.
"You're talking about Cyrus," the girl says. "Is it inappropriate for a husband to share a bed with his wife? He's a prophet. It's an honour to bear his children," the 15-year-old says defiantly.
Silent alarm bells go off. The girl, Jessie, explains that Cyrus is her husband and "a prophet." "It's an honour to bear his children," the 15-year-old says defiantly.
Suddenly, Cyrus and a group of men burst into the room carrying automatic weapons. Unbeknownst to Prentiss and Spencer, police are about to raid the compound! Officers break down the doors and rush the school and church. From above, compound members open fire on the police. In the course of the shoot-out, a state police officer accompanying Emily and Reid is shot dead through the chest.
The police pull back. And the stand-off begins….
JJ came half racing back into the bullpen switching on the TV in mid-step of calling Morgan's attention. "isn't that where Emily and Reid are?" he questioned as JJ just nodded in response "HOTCH" Morgan shouted with enough emotion it pulled both Hotch and Rossi out of their offices. Morgan drew the attention back to the TV as they all watched in shock, just as the phones began to light up sending each one ringing.
"We are lead on this" Hotch said as the team didn't think twice as they headed straight out the building wasting no time getting to and on the jet. Garcia appeared on the laptop as she looked at them all. Morgan was the first to speak
"What you got for us Garcia?"
"Ah, we got budkiss. It's like the guy never cast a shadow on the known universe. However his predecessor, Leo Cane, is doing a 17-year stretch at Deerfield federal prison. Apparently Libertarians, do not like paying taxes." Garcia stated "17 years for tax evasion?" Morgan questioned "Oh no, that'd be two years for tax evasion and 15 for going after four IRS-agents with a Louisville slugger." Garcia said with a slight smirk on her face
JJ sat at the back of the jet wishing they were there already cursing herself for being so mad at her wife and also cursing Emily for the reason she was totally infuriated at her
As Emily sat in the basement the thought went through her mind 'if and when we get out of here Jennifer is going to kill me'
Morgan walked to the back of the jet sitting opposite JJ "She is going to be fine" he said softly "And then I can personally kill her" JJ said the anger in her voice couldn't be hidden but Morgan pushed a little "What the hell is going on with you two?" he almost snapped "Oh you mean beside her pulling away not sleeping hardly eating and then last night before they left asked me if anything should happen to her make sure their children knew she loved them and she near enough said goodbye to me, so yeah nothing is going on" JJ snapped at him, Morgan looked at her for a moment "JJ you know she loves you and she wouldn't have meant it and I am more than sure she didn't know this was going to happen" he said calmly, JJ let out a sigh as she nodded "Sorry"
"Why didn't we know about a raid" Hotch said as JJ approached them all "because the state attorney general kept it quiet. Turns out Wells, has aspirations of becoming governor in the next election and didn't want the raid jeopardized that" her voice was somewhat cold and detached as she spoke.
