Author’s note: Well since you all seem to have Birthdays around the same days, you’re all going to kill me, ;]. But I have to say it is always fun for me to write and I find that it is a pleasure to write birthday fic, because it lasts so much longer then virtual gifts. I just hope you like it. But anyway Happy Birthday carlyisnot. I hope you have a happy and fantastic day.
Rating: pg-15, Swearing like a sailor on leave… ;]
Summary: Emily finds someone she hasn’t seen in 11 years. A different world from Criminal Minds as we know it, besides Emily/JJ being together I have changed a bit to fit the story but it is all in good fun so please don’t hate or sue me for it I own none of the characters, show, etc.Disclaimer: Not mine, the song and characters belong to someone else. But you all can thank carlyisnot for the inspiration and for being born on May 3. Oh and major angst, as requested so I hope you all can handle it. ;] Oh and self beta, again b-day fic so I will try to do daily updates.
“I think the best place to start is with the history of this whole project. As we all know, Afghanistan is currently the world’s leading producer of heroine, but what many people don’t know is the reason why and how that came to be. It was almost twenty years ago when the CIA planted poppy fields in order to help the war lord generate money. Currently poppies make up a good amount of the GDP of Afghanistan, to say the least.” Elle explained as she remembered most of the information about the project and it history from when she was informed by Carlina herself.
“Here is where our current case begins, even though the Cold War was over, not all Russian ties ended, in fact, due to positioning and location in the U.S. one particular Russian family got very influential and powerful within the heroine business and has generated a intricate network that spans from Afghanistan to Mexico and finally to West Virginia. Thus the DEA and Mexican drug officials began project WV, in order to cut of weapon and money supply flow from the cartel and the Russian mob.” Elle continued as she opened up the file on the Petrov family. She laid out all the connections they had found on the family, from the Mexican cartels they conferred with to the shipping and importing influence that allowed them to ship product, cash, and weapons undetected.
“I have heard of them from the news, there is a lot of talk about this family due to their connection to mysterious murders of shipping officials that could never be proven.” JJ stated, hearing a lot of information from some friends and past lovers she had had from all the press encounters. She knew of the gossip on a possible DEA covert operation, but no one really knew and a lot of them preferred it that way.
“Yeah that is one of the many things this family is linked to. We are currently several years into this, and it is wrapping up quickly, especially with this new administration and its goals in Afghanistan and cleaning up a mess we made. But the real issue is that we have people on the inside who say it is time to move quickly to shut them down. Something big is happening and a lot of people and important things are going down. We are not sure exactly of what, but we have an idea and it is not pretty. A lot of important people are going to be casualties in this if all goes down before we stop them.” Elle said with a serious look on her face, it matched many of her directors and unit chiefs who had more information, but sadly this thing only seemed to get worse.
“And the Ambassador is one of those casualties.” JJ stated, knowing that Emily was now in a fight that would most likely wipe out her whole family. JJ knew Elle couldn’t say anything that result in any kind of comfort or anything necessary so she watched as her old teammate just nodded. JJ knew this could get Emily killed if they didn’t stop her now.
“So wait not only is the Ambassador in trouble but now Emily, Hotch and us are in harm’s way?” Garcia said, breaking her silence. She looked between her friends and saw that she was more than stated the obvious, she was stated the problem that needed to be addressed as soon as possible.
“There is more but right now we need both of you to help us located Agent Prentiss immediately. When she initiated contact with her daughter, she put everyone in harm’s way.” Elle said as she looked at JJ.
“Yes but that is what I was told won’t happen since I helped get her out of Qunatico. Your boss told me Emily would be safe!” JJ said as she remembered the deal she made with the DEA officer.
A few days before…
“Jareau.” JJ said as she picked up the phone. It was a slow day at the BAU and she couldn’t wait to get hope and relax with a glass of wine, a good movie, and Emily.
“Agent Jareau, there isn’t a lot of time but I will need your full cooperation in order to ensure the safety of both Agent Prentiss and Hotchner.” The man’s voice said.
“Who is this?” JJ said, clearly not amused by the joke that someone was pulling on her. She knew it had to be Morgan and Reid, because only Morgan could pull off the deep commanding voice and not laugh, and only Reid could make a joke this complex and ‘not funny.’ JJ thought as she waited for her answer.
“My name is Carl Wheeler, I’m a DEA agent, and currently your agents have just stepped into a very volatile case that could get them and all of my agents killed. Most importantly, your Agent Prentiss has ties in this that are far deeper entrenched then she realizes but for now she can’t know. But what you need to do is you need to keep quiet about this and meet me by your holding cells. The key issue is that no one can know, but this needs to be done quickly and quietly. We have already made arrangements all you have to do is come down and meet me and we will take care of the rest, but there is little time to waste I need to know that you not only understand what I am saying, but that you will fully comply to every part of this. Because if you don’t the entire Prentiss line is in threat of becoming extinct, so I need to know now if you’re on board or not?” Wheeler asked as he walked up to the doors of Quantico and waited for an answer.
“Yes…yes just…you make sure that nothing will happen to Emily or her family. Because if it does I will hold you solely responsible, and believe me when I say you will wish you never crossed me Agent Wheeler.” JJ said as she hung up the phone and went straight toward the holding cells in Quantico.
‘Forgive me.’ JJ thought, as she knew that there was more to this story then that DEA agent was telling her and she would have to ruin Emily’s trust in her in order to save Emily’s life.
The black Toyota pulled up behind the BMW that just pulled into the motel on the outside of the city limits of Elkins. West Virginia. The driver watched as the dark haired woman checked to the cheap motel. A black leather gloved hand grabbed the 9 mm gun in the glove box and loaded the clip in.
