Prompt 26: Teammates (Reid and Morgan)

 

“Hey.  You okay?”

 

“What do you mean?”

 

“You know exactly what I mean, Spencer.  You and Gideon were close.”

 

Reid sighed.  “I wish I could say I saw it coming.  I mean, now that I think about it, there were all these signs.”

 

“You know what they say about hindsight.”

 

“Yeah.”

 

“Look on the bright side, kid; he could always come back to visit.”

 

“I really don’t think he will.  I think he’s finally put all this behind him, and if he looks back, it’ll crush him.  Boston and then Sarah…”

 

“He can’t just forget about us.  We were his teammates for years.”

 

“Didn’t you notice how he was determined to keep us all at a distance after Boston?”

 

“Except you.”

 

“Especially me.”

 

“You were like a son to him.”

 

“Exactly.”

 

End

Oh. I always adore fics like this, where there aren't that many words but the characters still manage to say so much. (*cue my award for cheesiest line of the day*)

The one word ending to this was just perfect, and this was such a good -- and sad -- look at Reid's relationship with Gideon. Poor boy just can't catch a break.
