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: but uber sad. : [
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.
JJ felt the arm around her waist and inched back into the warmth and familiar body that embraced her while she slept. She didn’t even need to open her eyes to see who held her while she slept, she knew right away. It wasn’t only the smell of the older agent that filled her senses, the jasmine perfume of her shampoo, it was more than that. She could feel the warmth and love emanating off of her lover. JJ always felt so loved and safe within Emily’s arms. She didn’t want to open her eyes, JJ was afraid that it might not be real, but she would have to eventually. “Please tell me you’re real, that I am not dreaming.” JJ begged.
“I think you already know the answer to that JJ. I wish I was…believe me.” Emily said into her lover’s hair.
“How long do I have before I have to wake up? JJ asked, not wanting to turn around. She knew as soon as she did that Emily would be gone and she would wake up alone.
“You already know the answer to that too.” Emily said as she pulled her closer. “I feel the same, but I am in so much pain right now.”
“You should have stayed…I could have helped you. We could have…” JJ said as a tear ran down her cheek. She felt Emily wipe it away.
“You know I would never put you in harm’s way, and this was my only option. It’s not the best option but it was my choice. Just know that…I will always regret leaving you but not loving you. Even with all the pain…it was the only thing I ever did right in my life.” Emily said as she pulled her lover tight against her body. “The only thing.” She said as she kissed the back of her neck and moved away from her slowly.
“Emily…please...” JJ said as she felt herself wake up.
“Come back.” JJ said aloud in her empty hotel room.
Emily let a tear roll down her cheek as she woke up from her dream. “The only thing.” Before she even had a chance to move she felt the cloth go over her mouth and began to drift back into unconsciousness. ‘No!,’ was her last coherent thought.
