~Name: Alexandria (Alex)
Job: Medical Examiner for BAU.
-HOW YOU MET-
My partner, Jacob, rolled in another body. “This one needs to be done ASAP.” he said. I sadly looked at the black bag. “Is it horrid?” I asked. “Isn’t it always?” I shrugged. “Our horrid are different.” I said. “Anyways….this one is for case 309345.” He said. I jotted down the numbers on the blank report. I unzipped the bag to see a women. The face was completely dissolved. Along with the ears and hands. I gulped. “looks like acid.” I said. “That’s what I was thinking.” He said. “How soon do you need this report?” I asked. “End of the night…..SSA Morgan and SSA Prentiss will be picking them up.” He said and left me alone.
I heard a knock on the door. “Come in!” I yelled. I just finished stitching up the women’s body. I turned to see the agents. “Her name is Kelsey Jones….I got the DNA from her hair.” I told them and put the needle down. I pulled off the gloves and goggles then pulled my hair out of the ponytail. “So…Baby Girl…wait…I can call you that right?” The guy with the glasses and white teeth asked me. I gulped and gave a nervous smile. “Yeah…sure.” I said. “So…what do you have for us?” the women asked. “Well Agent Prentiss the Unsub is using acid to dissolve her skin. I cut her stomach and saw that she was well fed so he must have been taking care of her.” I said. “How old do you think she is?” Agent Morgan asked. “Seventeen at least.” I said. “Thanks for your time baby girl.” The two then left me. I just wanted to know when I could see him again.
-HOW YOU STARTED DATING-
I just wrapped up some paper work when I heard another knock. “I’m sorry we’re…” I rolled around in my chair to see Agent Morgan. “Oh….Hi Agent Morgan.” I said. “For you baby girl it’s just Derek.” I smiled. “Derek.” I said. He gave me a smile. “So…Me and my team were going to the bar and I thought I’d invite you.” I raised my eyebrow. “Are you asking me on a date Derek Morgan?” I asked him. “Possibly.” He said. “Okay….just let me clean up the place a bit and I’ll be there.” I told him. “I’ll be waiting.” I felt my heart flutter when he left the room. “This is a date?” I asked myself. I managed to clean up in ten seconds…well I just shoved things into my desk. I took my hair out of the ponytail and hung up my doctors coat. I walked out to see Morgan….Derek. “I didn’t know you were waiting for me.” I said with a smile. “I wasn’t planning on it….I just thought you rather have me drive you.” he said. I smiled and nodded. “Thanks.” I said. “Let’s get going.” He said.
I walked in behind Derek into the crowded bar. “What do you drink?” he asked me as we sat at the bar. “Take a guess….I mean you are the profiler here.” I said with a smile. “Two beers.” Derek ordered. “It was a vodka but I guess beer will do.” I said with a giggle. He smiled and the beers were placed in front of us.
I had the best time with Derek tonight. He was a whole lot cooler then I thought he was. He walked me up to my apartment door. “I surprisingly hade a great time.” I said. “Surprisingly?” He asked. I shrugged with a playful smile playing on my lips. “I know this may be pushing it but how would you like to come out with me again?” he asked. “We will see.” I said. I unlocked my door then turned back to him. I stood on my tip-toes and left a soft kiss on his lips. “How’s that for my answer?” I asked and left him alone in front of my door.
-HOW IT HAPPENED-
I walked into my office. On my desk was a bundle of red roses. “Third ones this week…..I may have to start snooping.” Jacob said as he put a file on my desk. “Oh just be happy for me.” I said. He pulled out the card. “With love from Derek.” he teased. “Oh hush up.” I said with a blush creeping up on my cheeks. “Cute.” He said.
I finished with my paperwork at about 11 p.m this time. I yawned as I put it on the edge of my desk. I picked up my bag and felt a arm around me. I squeaked. “Scare you?” Derek asked me. “Possibly.” I said. “There isn’t a thing to be scared of.” He said and kissed the top of my head. “Your right.” I said and yawned again. “So…how would you like dinner at my place tonight?” He asked. “Are you cooking?” I asked. “Maybe.” He said. I put my hand on my stomach. “I can’t tonight….feeling sick.” I said. “Okay….I will order take out.” I took my hand off. “Suddenly I’m feeling a whole lot better.” I said. “Ouch.” I giggled as we walked out to his car.
He ordered me some Chinese food. We ate while we watched some type of horror movie. “You know…they should label horror movies into comedy…..I thought these things were supposed to be scary.” I said and finished off the last bit of rice. “hey…I wanted that.” He said. “To bad.” I said. He pushed me back onto the bed. I stared up at him and we started kissing. He then moved his warm lips to my neck. “Wait…do you have anything?” I asked him. “Yeah…we’re good.” he said and continued.
-HOW HE FOUND OUT-
It’s been three weeks since my amazing night with Derek. I knew from the first time I got sick that I was pregnant. I was sitting at my desk filling out papers when Jacob walked in. “So how far along are you?” He asked. “Almost done. Just a few more sentences.” I said. “Not with that…the baby.” I looked up at him. “I have three sisters with their fifth kid. I know the signs when I see them.” He said. “About three weeks.” I said. “And you didn’t remind him to use a condom….your always being careful.” He said. “I did ask him. He said we were good.” I said. “Well he lied.” Wirth that he left.
Derek came in twenty seconds later. “Hey baby girl. I was thinking of sushi tonight. What do you think?” He asked. “I’m busy.” I said. “To busy for one break?” He asked and put his chin on my neck. “I told you I’m busy Derek.” I snapped. “Sorry….I guess I’ll see you later.” As he went to leave I grabbed his wrist. “I’m sorry. It’s just….well I just have a lot on my mind.” I said. “You know you can talk to me.” He said. “I know.” I said. “What’s going through your head?” he asked. “It’s nothing. I’m just tired.” I lied.
I’ve been pregnant for three months now and no one but Jacob knows. I have no idea how to keep hiding this from Derek. We barely even talk anymore. I got off of work early and decided to drop by Derek’s office. I got off the elevator and everyone was standing around. Derek was teasing Dr. Reid who was staring up at him innocently. Reid’s eyes turned and saw me. “Morgan.” He said. Derek turned around. I gave him a tiny wave. “I know you probably don’t want to see me right now but there’s something we really need to talk about.” I told him. “Sure…can you give me a minute?” He asked. “Take your time.” I said with a tiny smile.
I walked down to the parking lot with Derek in silence. “So….is everything okay?” He asked me. “I don’t exactly know what okay is right now.” I said. “Are you in some kind of trouble?” He asked. “It depends on what you mean by that.” I said. He raised his eyebrow. “I don’t follow.” He said. I lifted up the bottom of my shirt, over my baby bump, and up to where my bra starts. “I’m pregnant.” I whispered and placed my hands on my bare stomach. “Wait….is….it’s mine?” He asked. “Yeah….I didn’t want to tell you but….it’s kinda gonna be hard not to notice.” I said. “How far along?” He asked. “About three months.” I said. “It took you this long to tell me?” He asked. “And now your mad.” I said. “I’m not mad…I’m confused on why you haven’t told me.” He said. “I was afraid you wouldn’t want it.” I said. “Well I do. Nothing you can say or do will make me turn back now.” He said.
I moved in with Derek a week after I told him. He told me he didn’t want the two of us out of his sight. I quit my job so I could be at home with my baby instead of being away all the time. Derek volunteered to get a job where he didn’t travel much but I wouldn’t let him. Right now I was sitting on the couch, holding my 9 month in tummy, and eating roman noodles. Derek walked in with some bags. “More baby things?” I asked. “Blame Garcia. She will spoil this kid until the day she dies.” I smiled. I felt a tiny pain in my stomach. I rubbed it until it went away. I put another fork full of noodles into my mouth before it came back. I spit out the noodles and held my stomach. “DEREK!” I yelled. He came running out of the bedroom. “It’s time.” I said in a pained voice.
I spent 10 hours in labor. I felt instant relief when I heard my baby’s cries. “It’s a girl.” Derek whispered. I smiled. “Really?” I asked. “Yeah.” I laughed and felt tears of joy falling down my cheeks. I sat up slowly and held out my arms. The doctor placed the small bundle into my arms. Her eyes were already open and they were brown. “What do you think of the name Blaine?” He asked. “Blaine Morgan…..that’s kinda nice.” I said. “Glad you think so.” He said.
