Chapter 2

I awoke to a knock on the door. I opened my eyes to see someone standing in the doorway with a tray. The man looked like he was a nurse. He was wearing teal scrubs and had a welcoming smile on his face.

Weakly, I smiled back and sat up. Sebastian groaned and started to rub his eyes as he slowly woke up from his slumber. I smiled down at him then looked back at the nurse.

“I have brought your lunch.” I glanced over to the clock and noticed it was 11:45. Fifteen minutes until Spencer would be back. I nodded to the nurse and examined him as he walked over to the bed and put the plate down on the tray that goes over my lap.

The food actually looked halfway decent. It had cooked carrots, corn, something that looked like meatloaf, and, of course, pudding. I decided to let Sebastian eat a little bit because I was sure that he hadn’t had anything this morning.

The nurse walked out of the room and I could have sworn I saw a smirk on his tan face. I noticed a tattoo on the back of his neck. It was a small ying yang symbol. There was something written underneath it but he was too far away for me to be able to tell what it said.

I shook my head and looked down at Sebastian. “Are you hungry?” I asked, smiling. He nodded his little blonde head and opened his mouth. I laughed and stabbed one of the carrots. I was about to put it in his mouth when I stopped, looking up.

Standing in the doorway was another nurse.  A female. She, too, was carrying a tray. The food on hers was different than the one on mine. “Who brought you that?” She asked, her eyes widening.

I quickly pulled the fork away from Sebastian and shrugged. “Some guy in scrubs. Black hair, brown eyes, tan. He had a tattoo on the back of his neck.”

She shook her head. “That can’t be. There is not a single nurse in this entire hospital that has a tattoo on their neck. It’s against the policy. No one can have visible tattoos.” She turned around and started to yell to someone. I wasn’t sure who but about half a second later, Spencer stepped into view. Agent Morgan was with him, again, and a woman. She was blonde and beautiful. She had a motherly look to her and I automatically knew she had a child.

“What’s going on?” Agent Morgan asked, Spencer squeezing into the room. The nurse explained that they don’t serve food on that kind of plate. Spencer looked down at the plate then back to Agent Morgan. Spencer put the food he brought with him into the chair and pulled out an evidence bag. He put the plate of food into it and had me drop the fork in.

I glanced at Sebastian who was looking just how I imagined. He was a mix between scared, curious, and hungry. His blue eyes looked from me to Spencer. “I’m hungry!” He said, narrowing his eyes. I couldn’t help but to laugh. Sebastian definitely was a smart child.

Spencer looked at him, just as shocked at Agent Morgan was. He let the nurse go and walked into the room, the woman following. “This needs to be tested. I’m sure that someone was trying to poison her.” The woman nodded and took the bag.

“I’ll bring it to the hospital’s lab right now.” She walked out the door, glancing back at Sebastian and me and smiling gently.

“Sorry, I didn’t anticipate these two coming but Hotch made them come along.” Spencer glared at Agent Morgan then walked over to the chair, picking up the food. “I brought Chinese, though.” A smile crossed his face for a split second then he started to take the food out, placing it on the tray.

Agent Morgan walked over and sat in the chair. “You forgot drinks, kid. You should go get some. Wouldn’t want them to dehydrate on us.” Spencer turned and I figured he was glaring at Agent Morgan but I couldn’t tell because his back was to me.

“Why don’t you go get them?” Spencer asked, crossing his arms.

“I wouldn’t know what to get.” Agent Morgan relaxed more in the chair as his eyes drifted to me. “And I would like to talk to Ms. Evans some more.”  Spencer sighed then turned to me.

“I’ll be right back. It would be best to just ignore whatever Morgan tries to tell you.” He sighed again and ran his fingers through his hair then marched out the door, leaving Agent Morgan alone with me and my child.

I glanced over to him and he smiled at me. “Spence didn’t look to happy to leave us alone together. He didn’t even want JJ or me coming. He actually argued with our boss about it. He continued to insist it was a ‘personal meeting.’” I heard a laugh come from Agent Morgan and I looked down at Sebastian who was literally staring at Agent Morgan with fascination.

”Well, it sort of was, Agent, so he wasn’t particularly lying.” I looked back to Agent Morgan.

“Please, call me Derek. I mean, you call the kid Spencer. I feel kind of left out.” He smirked slightly then his eyes moved to the doorway. I followed his gaze to where the beautiful blonde was standing. “Oh, and here is JJ.”

I smiled at her. “I’m Violet. It’s a pleasure to meet you. This is my son, Sebastian.” I looked down at the child who had his eyes on Age-Derek.

He crawled over me and put his arms out. “Derek!” He yelled, a large smile crossing his face. Derek laughed and stood up as JJ walked over. She sat down where Derek had been and looked at me. Derek picked up Sebastian and put him on the ground, starting to play with him. Sebastian grabbed toys out of the bag that I’m guessing Marissa dropped off when I was sleeping. She probably went back to the house.

“He’s adorable.” JJ said, her eyes on the two boys. Derek reached over and placed his gun at the foot of the bed. I looked at it for a second and felt a slightly ache in my thigh.

“Yeah. I’m just glad he doesn’t look like his father.” I looked away from the gun and at JJ. She had that motherly look in her eyes. “Do you have a child?” I already knew the answer.

“Yes. A son. Henry. He’s four.” She smiled to herself. The smile of a mother thinking about her son.

“Sebastian is four, also.” I smiled at Sebastian as he looked at me, hearing his name. He gave me a huge smile and went back to playing with the toy cars with Derek.

I looked up just as Spencer walked back into the room. He looked from Sebastian and Derek to JJ then finally to me. He walked to the opposite side of the bed and started to put down the variety of drinks.

“Back in school you liked to drink a lot of coffee but then I figured that would bring back memories of the shooting so I got you water instead.” Reid held the bottle of water out to me and I smiled at him. I was about to thank him when my son spoke up.

“Why are you nervous?” I looked down at the four year old, completely shocked as he pulled on Spencer’s jacket. Spencer crouched down and looked at Sebastian.

“That’s because I haven’t seen your mother in a long time. I don’t know what to say.” He said, with the same nervous smile that he always seemed to be wearing in school.

Derek stood up and walked over to Spencer. He placed his hand on his shoulder. “Are you sure it’s not because you’re in a room with two beautiful mothers?”

Spencer glared at him and stood up, walking around to where the food was half taken out. He worked at finishing getting it ready. I looked over at Derek and he had a smirk on his face. Sebastian was working at crawling onto the bed. Derek helped him up and he sat next to me, patiently waiting for the food.

Spencer served Sebastian and me first then JJ then Derek and himself. I handed Sebastian a fork and a nurse brought in extra chairs for Derek and Spencer. I looked over at JJ and broke the silence. Well, tried to.

“What’s it like being in the FBI and having a son?” I asked then took a bite of some of the food.

“It’s hard. I miss him whenever I’m away. When I get home, it’s fantastic, though. The feeling I get when I see him again is just phenomenal. It makes it all worth it to see his smile.” She had a smile on her face that made her look even more beautiful. Motherhood suits her perfectly.

“I know the feeling. I mean, I’m not away from Sebastian as much as you besides when I release a new book. When I’m promoting my book, I can’t be with him. We just moved to DC a couple months ago to help with that. I plan on staying here at least until…” I stopped myself. I looked down at Sebastian and smiled weakly. “He’s going to have to be homeschooled because of it.” My smile dropped.

I wanted Sebastian to go to a normal school. He needs the experience. He needs to know what it’s like to go to a normal school. I just wasn’t sure if I could provide him with that without leaving him at home more than I do.

“Rumor has it that your latest book is being made into a movie.” I looked over at Spencer.

“Yeah, it is.” I looked at him curiously. “But how did you know that? It hasn’t been released to the press yet.”

I could have sworn that there was a slightly hint of a blush on his cheeks. That’s when it came to me.

“Wait. Have you been checking up on me?” I asked, putting my fork down. I wasn’t sure if I should be happy about this or be angry.

“I only asked Garcia to do it a few times. I was worried about you.” His voice was low. Even I could tell the atmosphere got tense. Sebastian was looking between the two of us. My eyebrows narrowed.

“So call me! You don’t need to investigate me! I would have answered!” I sighed with frustration and ran my fingers through my hair, trying to calm myself down.

If he was so worried, why didn’t he call me. Just because we didn’t talk anymore did not mean that he couldn’t pick up a phonebook and find my number. Even just having this Garcia person look up my phone number would have been better. He didn’t have to go checking into me with his FBI connections. I couldn’t believe that Spencer Reid of all people would do this.

“What else did you find out?” I asked, closing my eyes. He hesitated. I opened my eyes and looked at him. He was looking at his hands. “Can you two please wait outside? I need to speak with Spencer. In private. Sebastian, go with Derek.” I didn’t look away from him.

Derek grabbed Sebastian and went out to the hallway. JJ followed. I crossed my arms and looked at Spencer

“What else did you find out.” I made sure not to make it a question this time.

“It’s about your parents.” He said quietly.

“What about them?” I asked, not fazed.

“That you had been questioned again about them. That they did it again. This one died just like the others.” He was shaking slightly.

“I know what they did. You don’t need to remind me. They aren’t my parents anymore. They are just two criminals who raised me.” I shook my head. “No. They didn’t raise me. They did ‘that.’”

I sighed and closed my eyes. “Let them back in. Do not check up on me again. I will give you my cell phone number. You don’t need to look into anything. Not unless they call you in. If that’s the case, then you can ask about those two. Otherwise, do not bother with them.” I opened my eyes and glared at him. “They don’t need to know about Sebastian. They would only continue.”
