October 16th, 2014

Spencer smiled as he stood at the altar. It had taken a little longer than he had hoped, but at least it was happening. This was it. This was the day JJ would officially become Mrs. Spencer Reid: Jennifer "JJ" Reid. The day that he and JJ would officially become Dr. and Mrs. Spencer Reid.

JJ was excited as well. She's been waiting for this day for a long time. This was a day that should come many years ago. She was currently eight months pregnant with her and Spencer's second child: a daughter. Her mother and her friends on the team along with Emily and Elle were getting her ready for the big day. Penelope was an excellent Maid of Honor. She had managed to pull this wedding together for this exact day. This was a significant day to both JJ and Spencer. It was the ninth anniversary of their first date: the Redskins game date all those years ago. The date that gave them any chance for love.

"Are you ready, Jenny?" Marty Jareau asked. Since Henry Jareau, Sr, was deceased, JJ had asked Marty to give her away.

JJ smiled happily at her brother. "Yes, I am."

Marty smiled. "Then let's get a move on and get you to your soon-to-be husband."


Spencer stared at JJ as she walked down the aisle, led by her bridesmaids. Even at eight months pregnant, JJ still looked stunning in her wedding dress. Hotch, Morgan, Will, Danny, and Henry all stood to his left as they watched the bride walk down the aisle. Once JJ reached the altar and stood facing Spencer, the priest began his sermon.

He spoke for a while before he reached the vows. "Spencer?"

Spencer cleared his throat. "Jennifer, my dear sweet Jennifer. Where have the years gone? This day nine years ago, we were sitting in a football stadium and we had our first date. We held hands that day. We shared our first kiss that night. We declared out love for each other that night. That night was stuck in my memory the most. Even through all the trouble we went through, we stand here today. I would've proposed during the Super Bowl in 2007, but you saw how that worked out. But here we are now. Better late than never, I guess." The entire wedding audience laughed. Gideon smiled, remembering that he was the one who gave him those Redskins tickets. Rossi smiled, remembering that he had influenced JJ's career choice during college; in other words, he was smiling because if it wasn't for him, JJ and Spencer would never have met. "So much has changed since then. Nine years ago, I would never have seen my life like this: marrying you, having our son Henry, and our unborn daughter. I never imagined having a family after all that I went through, but now I don't have to. Now I have one. I love you, JJ. Don't forget that I will always love you."

The priest turned to JJ. "Jennifer?"

JJ cleared her throat. "Well, how can a girl follow that? Spence, I remember every moment of that date nine years ago. I remember you enlightening me with statistics, I remember you spilling your beer on the guy in front of you when I tried to hold your hand, and everything afterward. With all that we've gone through, I thought that we would never end up here. But, we are here now with our son and our daughter on the way. Today, I become the luckiest and happiest girl in the world by marrying you. I love you, Spence. Don't forget that I will always love you too."

The priest turned to Henry. "May I have the rings?" Henry nodded and handed the rings to the priest.

He handed one to Spencer. "I love you, Jennifer, and with this ring, I thee wed," Spencer said as he slid the ring onto JJ's left ring finger.

The priest handed the other to JJ. "I love you, Spence, and with this ring, I thee wed," she said as she slid the ring onto Spencer's left ring finger.

The priest smiled. "By the power vested in me by the Lord and the state of Virginia, I now pronounce you man and wife. You may kiss the bride."

Spencer and JJ wasted no time in obeying the priest's statement. They passionately kissed as cheers erupted from the crowd of people, including JJ's mother and brother, Spencer's parents, Gideon, Rossi, their co-workers at the BAU, Matt Cruz, Morgan's sisters, cousin, and mother, Alex and her husband, and Jack Hotchner. They heard the famous Morgan wolf-whistle, but they continued a little longer. They finally broke apart minutes later.

"Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you Dr. and Mrs. Spencer Reid," the priest announced. Cheers grew louder as Spencer, JJ, and their son walked down the aisle together as a family.


"Ladies and Gentlemen," Danny said over the microphone at the wedding reception. "I present a toast to our super-genius and the love of his life. The couple we all knew was meant happen for years. Their love stands strong. That is why I chose these next three songs for the newlyweds." Danny pointed to the DJ, who started playing the songs he chose for his best friends.

"Here I stand head in hand

Turn my face to the wall

If she's gone I can't go on

Feelin' two-foot small

Everywhere people stare

Each and every day

I can see them laugh at me

And I hear them say

Hey you've got to hide your love away

Hey you've got to hide your love away

How can I even try

I can never win

Hearing them, seeing them

In the state I'm in

How could she say to me

Love will find a way

Gather round all you clowns

Let me hear you say

Hey you've got to hide your love away

Hey you've got to hide your love away... ohhh

Hey you've got to hide your love away... ohhh

Hey you've got to hide your love away"

Spencer smiled at his new bride. They both connected with the song. Once Will came along, Spencer forced his feelings underneath everything. He was hiding his love for JJ away where it could never be seen again. When JJ got pregnant and Will gave up everything for her and Henry, she tried forcing her feelings underneath everything. It never worked since she was the one who initiated any kiss she shared with Spencer, but she had to hide her love away after she married Will. She and Spencer basically distanced themselves away from each other for almost a year following the wedding.

Now neither of them had to hide their love away anymore. As the song finished, Spencer pulled JJ in for a tight hug, during which he felt his daughter's kick on his stomach. He pulled away and lowered himself to JJ's belly.

"Hey, baby girl. I'm always gonna be here, okay? I love you." He kissed JJ's belly before he stood back up and held JJ for the next song.

"Never knew I could feel like this

Like I've never seen the sky before

Want to vanish inside your kiss

Every day I love you more and more

Listen to my heart, can you hear it sings?

Telling me to give you everything

Seasons may change, winter to spring

But I love you until the end of time

Come what may

Come what may

I will love you until my dying day

Suddenly the world seems such a perfect place

Suddenly it moves with such a perfect grace

Suddenly my life doesn't seem such a waste

It all revolves around you

And there's no mountain too high

No river too wide

Sing out this song and I'll be there by your side

Storm clouds may gather,

And stars may collide

But I love you (I love you)

Until the end of time (until the end of time)

Come what may

Come what may

I will love you until my dying day

Oh, come what may, come what may

I will love you,

Oh I will love you

Suddenly the world seems such a perfect place

Come what may

Come what may

I will love you until my dying day."

Spencer and JJ smiled at how much the song fit their relationship. However, they were luckier than Christian and Satine. They would get to spend the rest of their lives together. With each other, with their son, and with their daughter. The next song started playing.

"I don't know you but I want you

All the more for that

Words fall through me and always fool me

And I can't react

And games that never amount

To more than they're meant

Will play themselves out

Take this sinking boat and point it home

We've still got time

Raise your hopeful voice, you have a choice

You've made it known

Falling slowly, eyes that know me

And I can't go back

The moods that take me and erase me

And I'm painted black

Well, you have suffered enough

And warred with yourself

It's time that you won

Take this sinking boat and point it home

We've still got time

Raise your hopeful voice, you have a choice

You've made it known

Falling slowly sing your melody

I'll sing along

I paid the cost too late

Now you're gone."

As they danced, the song had nailed them to a point. They were falling slowly closer to each other's love. And that was all they needed. Well, other than Henry and their unborn daughter.

And that was good enough for them.


November 14th, 2014

JJ winced in pain. She knew what it meant. Looks like their daughter was going to take after Henry and show up a few weeks early.

"Spence!" she yelled. Her husband showed up at his wife's beckoning call.

"What is it, JJ?" he asked.

"She's coming," JJ said. "Right now."

Spencer immediately became flustered, but quickly recovered.

"I'll get our bag and you get in the SUV. We'll need the siren. I'll call Garcia to tell Henry and to bring him to the hospital," Spencer rattled off as he reached for the phone. JJ stood up shakily and headed for the door. She was taking small, slow steps, so it was taking a while for her to get anywhere. Then she gasped.

Spencer heard and ran in. "What is it?"

JJ looked at him and replied, "My water just broke."

Spencer's eyes widened. "Okay, now is not the time to panic. I'm going to have to speed you up a little." He grabbed JJ's arm and helped her walk faster to the SUV and got her inside. He threw their bag in the backseat and ran for the driver's side. He climbed in and turned on the siren.

"Hold on tight," he told JJ. He sped off for the hospital.


"Jenny, she's beautiful," Spencer said as he looked down at his wife and newborn daughter. "I'm glad I'm here for her birth, seeing as I almost missed Henry's."

"But now, we have two children. Henry will love this little girl."

"He'd better. I'm going to need his help beating up the boys who hurt our little girl."

"Spence, don't be too over protective," JJ scolded.

"I can't help it. She's my daughter. No one's going to hurt her on my watch."

JJ smiled. Then she remembered no one had told the team yet. "Spence, the others. They'll want to meet her." Spencer nodded and walked out. When he returned, the first in was Henry, who jumped up and looked in happiness at his new baby sister, especially since it was so close to his sixth birthday. He said she was like a late birthday present. He absolutely loved her. Garcia was next in line. A rotation circuit had gone around until Will was the only one left who hadn't held the little baby girl.

"Will," JJ called. He turned around. "Are you just going to stand there or are you going to meet your goddaughter?"

Will's jaw dropped. "Goddaughter?"

Spencer spoke this time. "You do so well with Henry. Despite everything we found out, you didn't leave. You still wanted to see Henry. You chose to be his godfather. Why wouldn't we want you as her godfather?" Spencer smirked. "Besides, it's kind of funny to see the roles reversed now." Will, Spencer, and JJ all began laughing.

"So, Will, you want to hold her?" JJ asked.

Will nodded as he lifted the baby girl from her mother's arms. "She's beautiful."

"Just like her mommy," Spencer said. "And I know you agree with me." Will smiled since he knew Spencer was right.

Will stared at his goddaughter, mentally declaring his decision to stand by her forever. Spencer noticed this and whispered to JJ. "In his mind, he's declaring that he will always be around for her."

"How do you know?" JJ asked.

"That's the exact way I looked when you made me Henry's godfather, wasn't it?" JJ nodded. "That was what I was thinking." Spencer paused for a moment. "He's just right for our little girl."

JJ looked back at her former husband and then glanced towards her current husband. "Yes he is."


New Year's Eve

The team had gathered in Rossi's backyard. It was going to be their new tradition. Hotch was there with Beth and Jack; Morgan stood by Garcia; Emily, who had flown back to Quantico for the New Year, stood there as well; Alex was content as she stood next to Emily; Elle was standing nearby with her new boyfriend, Will LaMontagne; Spencer and JJ were sitting with Henry and their newborn baby girl; Danny stood nearby, watching as Spencer and JJ smiled with their children; next to Danny was Gideon, who watched his old family enjoy the night. Rossi came down and acknowledged them.

"Thank you all for coming," he began. "I know that it's cold, but I'm glad you all came. I'd like to start a new tradition for us." He pulled out a box of wax candles. There were enough for everyone present, save for baby Reid. He handed them out before he continued. "Every year, I want us all to come here and give a candlelight vigil to the victims or loved ones that were lost during the year. This year, I want us all to give a vigil to the ones we lost at any point in our lives." He took out a lighter and lit his own candle. "I'll start."

He lifted his candle. "Carolyn Rossi, James Rossi, and Erin Strauss." He moved his candle to Hotch's.

"Haley Brooks-Hotchner." His candle moved to Morgan.

"Officer David Morgan." Morgan's moved to Garcia.

"Mr. and Mrs. George Garcia." She moved hers to Emily.

"Matthew Benton." She moved her candle to Alex.

"Mrs. Martha Miller," Alex moved her candle to Elle.

"Lt. Jonathon Greenaway." She moved her candle to Will.

"Mr. and Mrs. William LaMontagne I." He moved his candle to Spencer.

"Dr. Maeve Donovan." He moved his to JJ.

"Katie and Henry Jareau, Sr." She lowered herself to Henry and lit his candle.

"Daddy's friend Riley," he said. Spencer smiled at his son. Henry walked over to Danny, who lowered himself to light his candle.

"James, Megan, Joseph, and Elizabeth Parker." He shed a tear. "The Parker family." He moved his candle to Gideon.

"Sarah Jacobs, Rebecca Bryant, and our six lost bretheren in Boston."

They all simultaneously blew out their candles. They sat in a circle where they were.

"I know we miss them all," Rossi said. "But we can live on knowing that they're in a good place."

A chorus of "Amen's" and "Here, here's" erupted.

It was quiet for a little while. "So, what now?" JJ asked.

Rossi shrugged. Danny suddenly had an idea.

"Rossi, do you have an acoustic guitar anywhere?"

Rossi looked at him. "Yeah, in the upstairs closet." Danny walked inside. About five minutes later, he came out with a guitar that he found.

He strummed a few notes before he started singing.

"I can take the rain

On the roof of this empty house

That don't bother me

I can take a few tears now and then

And just let 'em out

I'm not afraid to cry

Every once in awhile

Even though going on

With you gone still upsets me

There are days

Every now and again

I pretend I'm ok

But that's not what gets me

What's hurts the most

Was being so close

And having so much to say

And watching you walk away

And never knowing

What could have been

And not seeing that loving you

Is what I was tryin' to do

It's hard to deal with the pain

Of losing you everywhere I go

But I'm doin' it

Hard to force that smile when

I see our old friends and I'm alone

Still harder, getting up, getting dressed

Livin' with this regret

But I know if I could do it over

I would trade, give away

All the words, in my heart

That I left unspoken

What hurts the most

Was being so close

And having so much to say

And watching you walk away

And never knowing

What could've been

And not seeing that loving you

Was what I was tryin' to do

What hurts the most

Was being so close

And having so much to say

And watching you walk away

And never knowing

What could have been

And not seeing that love in you

Is what I was trying to do

Not seeing that love in you

That's what I was trying to do."

Danny played the last few notes of the song.

"I didn't know you could play or sing," Spencer said.

"You'd be surprised by the things you don't know about me," Danny replied.

"Like what?" Spencer asked.

"I used to perform Shakespeare in high school. I once played Macbeth, though it resulted in me breaking my leg." Everyone began laughing. "And that's why I believe in the curse of the Scottish Play." There was more laughter. "I've got another song," Danny said.

He played a few more notes before he began.

"Here comes the sun, doo doo doo doo

Here comes the sun, and I say

It's all right, mmm...

Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter

Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here

Here comes the sun doo doo doo doo

Here comes the sun, and I say

It's all right

Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo

Ahhh

Little darling

The smiles returning to their faces

Little darling

It seems like years since it's been here

Here comes the sun doo doo doo doo

Here comes the sun, and I say

It's all right

Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo

Sun, sun, sun, here it comes

Sun, sun, sun, here it comes

Sun, sun, sun, here it comes

Oh!

Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting

Little darling, it seems like years since it's been clear

But here comes the sun doo doo doo doo

Here comes the sun, and I say

It's all right

Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo

Here comes the sun doo doo doo doo

Here comes the sun, and I say

It's all right

Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo

It's all right

Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo

Sun, sun, sun, here it comes."

Danny suddenly got an idea. He turned to Rossi. "You have a keyboard anywhere?"

Rossi stood. "I'll get it." About five minutes later, Rossi came back with a keyboard in hand. He set it up for Danny.

"Doc," Danny called. "I need some help here. Can't play both instruments."

Spencer smiled as he stood up and walked over to the keyboard. Danny tuned the guitar. He whispered in Spencer's ear. "You got it?"

Spencer nodded. Danny plucked the strings of the guitar and Spencer played the keyboard, both playing the opening for the Beatles classic "Let it Be".

Then Danny began to sing.

"When I find myself in times of trouble

Mother Mary comes to me

Speaking words of wisdom, let it be," he began.

"And in my hour of darkness

She is standing right in front of me

Speaking words of wisdom, let it be."

Spencer joined in the song.

"Let it be, let it be,

Let it be, let it be,

Whisper words of wisdom, let it be."

JJ and Morgan joined in.

"And when the broken hearted people

Living in the world agree

There will be an answer, let it be

For though they may be parted

There is still a chance that they will see

There will be an answer, let it be."

The rest of the team joined in one-by-one as the chorus began: first Garcia, then Elle and Will, then Alex, then Emily, then Rossi, then Beth, then Gideon, and finally Hotch.

"Let it be, let it be

Let it be, let it be

There will be an answer, let it be

Let it be, let it be

Let it be, let it be

Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

Let it be, let it be

Let it be, let it be

Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

And when the night is cloudy

There is still a light that shines on me

Shine until tomorrow, let it be

I wake up to the sound of music,

Mother Mary comes to me

Speaking words of wisdom, let it be

Let it be, let it be

Let it be, let it be

There will be an answer, let it be

Let it be, let it be

Let it be, let it be

There will be an answer, let it be

Let it be, let it be

Let it be, let it be

Whisper words of wisdom, let it be."

The team finished singing their own little rendition of the Beatles' "Let it Be". Jack and Henry both clapped their hands in excitement.

"I didn't know any of you could sing," Danny said in awe.

"You'd be surprised about the things you don't know about us," Spencer replied. Everyone laughed.


Later that night, they all celebrated the passing of 2014 and the beginning of 2015.

"Hard to believe," Spencer commented.

JJ turned to look at him. "What?"

"Our first date. The Redskins game. It's almost been ten years. So much has changed."

JJ smiled. "Yes it has. We have a son and a daughter now, you've become stronger than you've been, we've been able to get closure on our pasts; it's all so much."

"But I wouldn't have it any other way," Spencer said as he leaned in to kiss JJ. Henry walked up a minute later.

"Mommy, Daddy, can we go home?" Henry asked sleepily.

"Yes we can Henry," Spencer said. "Let's go say goodbye and we can go home and get you and your sister to bed."

They said their goodbyes to the team for the night and headed back home. They quickly got Henry tucked in and asleep and their newborn baby girl was sleeping soundly in her bassinet.

Spencer and JJ looked over at both of their children. As they climbed into bed, they quickly gave each a kiss good night.

"I love you, Mrs. Reid," he said.

"I love you too, Dr. Reid," she replied.

They cuddled together and fell asleep in each other's arms.

That night, everyone was dreaming about the loved ones they lost.


JJ and Spencer prepped their son and newborn daughter for the occasion. Spencer fixed the bowtie of Henry's tuxedo. JJ made sure that their newborn daughter was swaddled and warm. Soon they were ready for the occasion. They exited their private room and entered the main area.

Rossi was fixing his tie for the occasion. He was extremely happy, but also extremely sad at whom he would be seeing tonight.

Hotch had Beth and Jack at his sides as he led them to the main area.

Derek and Penelope walked arm-in-arm into the main area.

Emily walked her way into the main area, as did Alex.

Will and Elle entered the main area as well.

Danny took a deep breath as he prepared to see the people he came to see.

Gideon stood solemnly before he entered the main area.

Standing in the main area were a number of people standing in groups convenient for the people who wanted to see them.


Spencer, JJ, and Henry walked over to the older man who was talking to a woman in her 30's, a teenager, and a little boy. The four turned to see the people they loved. Spencer slowly walked over to the woman in her 30's and the little boy.

"Maeve," he said softly. He hugged her tightly.

"I'm proud of you Spencer," she said. "You heeded my advice and not only got the girl of your dreams back and also received a son and daughter in the process."

"Maeve, I still love you. I miss you so much. And to be honest, JJ's better than the girl of my dreams. She's real."

Maeve smiled at her old love.

"I'm happy for Spencer. Thank you for completing my last request."

"Spencer," the little boy said.

Spencer stared for a moment. "Riley?"

The boy nodded. "It's okay, Spencer. You're lucky. You're still there. The man who hurt me is gone. He got sent where all the bad monsters get sent. He can't hurt me here. At least you know what could have happened."

Spencer nodded. "Yeah. My dad really misses you, kid. I know that your dad misses you too."

"I miss them both too. But I'm still present wherever they go. The heart may be only ventricles and blood, but the deeper meaning of it is that I still reside in their memories and as such, I'm in their minds and therefore I'm in their hearts."

Spencer eyes widened. "Smart kid, Riley."

"You're my best friend, Spencer," Riley said. "You think I haven't learned a few things since? Don't forget me."

Spencer stopped himself from crying. "I can't and I won't."


"Daddy, Katie," JJ said as she walked over to her father and sister.

"Jennifer," her father said.

JJ hugged them both and then pulled Henry over to the three.

"Henry, this is your grandfather and your Aunt Katie."

"Hi," Henry said in his typical six-year-old happiness.

"He's beautiful, Jenny," Katie said.

"I have Spence to thank for him. Not to mention this little one," she said motioning to the baby girl in her arms.

"What's her name?" Katie asked.

JJ looked at her happily. "I named her after you and Spencer's lady friend. This is Katie Maeve Reid."

Katie smiled as tears started to stream across her face. "She's beautiful Jenny."

"Just like her namesake. Both of them."


Spencer gave Maeve one last look. "I miss you. I'll never forget you, Maeve." He hugged her again as her figure faded away.

"Goodbye, Spencer. Goodbye, little Henry," she said to the little boy.

"Goodbye, Maeve. My daddy misses you," Henry replied. Maeve faded away completely.

"Hi," Riley called to Henry, who turned his head at the shout. "My name's Riley. What's yours?"

"Henry," Henry replied. "Are you a friend of my daddy?"

Riley nodded. He and Henry conversed as two six-year olds would. Eventually, Riley began to fade as well.

"Bye, Henry! I hope we get to see each other again."

Henry nodded and waved to his new friend. "I do too! Bye, Riley!"

Spencer spoke now. "Goodbye, Riley. I'll miss you."

"I'll miss you too, Spencer." Riley's figure faded completely.

Spencer teared up, but regained himself as he walked over to his wife talking his father-in-law and sister-in-law.

"Hello," Spencer said to JJ's father and sister.

"Hello, Spencer," Henry Jareau, Sr., said.

"Hi, Spencer," Katie said. "Thank you for helping Jenny discover the truth. Thanks to you, that monster is in jail and is paying for what he did."

"You're welcome," Spencer said as he walked over to hug his sister-in-law. He turned to face JJ's father. "I assure you that I will take care of JJ, Henry, and Katie. They are my family and I want them to know that I will take care of them. I only wish I got the chance to meet you in life."

"I do too, Spencer. But I know that I can trust you with my daughter and grandson." The figure of JJ's father started to fade. "Goodbye. Take care."

"I love you, daddy," JJ yelled.

His voice spoke, "I love you, too."

The figure of Katie started to fade as well.

"I love you Katie."

"I love you too, Jenny." Katie faded completely.

"Goodbye Papa, goodbye Aunt Katie," Henry yelled to the sky.

The voices spoke together, "Goodbye Henry. We both love you. Tell your sister that we love her too."


Rossi walked over to find two of the women he loved standing together. With them was a man in his 30's he didn't recognize.

"Hello, Dad," the man said.

Rossi's face expressed shock. "James?" he asked in disbelief.

James Rossi nodded. Rossi stood in shock and disbelief. He couldn't believe it.

"Dad?" James asked.

Rossi ran over to hug the son he never had, tears pouring from his eyes. He pulled James' mother Carolyn and Erin Strauss together for a family hug. A family that he would love to his own grave.


Will and Elle found Will's parents standing together with Elle's father. They were introduced to each other. Mr. and Mrs. LaMontagne smiled at their son for his accomplishment of finding someone he loved. Lt. Greenaway smiled at his daughter who had now found love in someone so kind.


Derek and Penelope introduced each other to Officer Morgan and Mr. and Mrs. Garcia.


Emily found Matthew standing by himself with no one to talk to. "You look like you could use some company." Matthew turned his head to see his best friend standing behind him. He immediately ran to hug her tightly.

"I've missed you Emily," he said through the tears forming in his eyes.

"I've missed you too, Matt," Emily said through her own tears.


Jack ran over to hug his mother.

"Mommy!" he shouted.

Haley held her son tightly. "Hello, Jack. I've missed you so much. I hope you're being good for Daddy."

"I am," Jack said.

"He really has," Hotch said.

"Hello, Aaron," Haley said. She glanced over to Beth. "Who's this?"

"Haley, this is Beth Clemmons. Beth, this is my ex-wife Haley."

"Hello," Beth said as she extended her hand out.

"It's nice to meet you, Beth. I sure hope you're helping out with my son as much as my sister is."

"I'm trying," Beth said laughing.

"Thank you for helping Aaron. You gave him love after I died. You helped him move on with him never ending his love for me. I still love him, but things just didn't work out. I hope they do with you two." Haley smiled at the two before she returned her attention to her son. "Mommy loves you, Jack."

"I love you too, Mommy," Jack replied.


Danny found his way over to the four people who stood together.

"Mom, Dad, Joey, Lizzie," he rattled off. Danny's family turned to look at him. Many a "Thank you" was given to their son/little brother: the man who took down their murderer. They talked for a good while, before they started to fade as well.

"I miss you all so much," Danny said through the tears that now stained his face. "I'll never forget you. I love you all."

"We love you too Daniel," the four said at the same time. They faded away as well.


Gideon saw Sarah, Rebecca, and his six fallen bretheren standing together. When he reached them, he immdeiately started apologizing for their deaths. Sarah silenced him.

"It wasn't your fault, Jason. You didn't cause our deaths. We moved on from what happened to us. You should too. The only people responsible for our deaths are the people who killed us: Adrian Bale and Frank Breitkopf. Both of them aren't going to hurt anyone anymore thanks to you. Don't look back on the past and be sad for the ones lost, but happy for the people who are safe thanks to you."

Gideon broke down in tears as he hugged Sarah tightly. "Thank you, Sarah."

Rebecca joined in the hug, as did the six fallen agents from Boston. Gideon was surrounded by the people he lost, but now he knew it wasn't his fault. They assured him that everything was okay because the criminals who killed them were stopped. Being in the arms of these people made him happier than he has ever been.


One by one, each of their loved ones vanished into thin air. Each said their goodbyes. They knew it wasn't really the end. They would all meet again someday. It was a beautiful night for everyone as they saw their lost loves again to say goodbye one last time.

Each person shed a few tears as they watched all their friends and loved ones say goodbye and fade into thin air.

The team and their close friends all dreamt of their loved ones. And that was what kept them going. Knowing that one day, they would all meet again.

But that day would be far off. Now was a time for happiness and family.

And thus the entire team, their families, Emily, Elle, Will, and Gideon, all slept to the memories of the ones they loved.

FIN

Well, that's it. That's the end. I hope you liked it. Leave your thoughts in a review. Thanks again for reading, especially if you have been with the story since the very beginning. It means a lot to me. Thank you so much.

Just a quick note: the songs are You've Got to Hide Your Love Away by the Beatles, Come What May by Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman from Moulin Rouge, Falling Slowly from Once, What Hurts the Most by Rascal Flatts, Here Comes the Sun by the Beatles (though the lyrics I got from the Glee Cast version), and Let it Be by the Beatles.

Well, that's all for this story. I hope you all continue on with the rest of the "Don't Forget" Collection. Besides, I might consider doing a sequel in the form of a collection of one-shots. Also keep an eye out for the second story in "A Guy Can Only Hope", LA Times! Thanks so much to you all!

I'll see you in another story! Good-bye!
