Prompt 48: Diamond (R/M)

 

31 December 2022

 

Dear Mom,

            How are you doing?  How was your Christmas?  Did you get the card and present that Derek and I sent you?  I had meant to write to you sooner, but things have gotten hectic all of a sudden.  Derek’s still getting used to his new post as head of the BAU, so I have to be there for him to help him out whenever possible.  We all still miss Hotch so much, but it’s better for him now that he’s taken a less strenuous post  and can spend a lot more time with Jack.  I can hardly believe how grown up he is now!!  Jack, that is, not Hotch, obviously.

 

            Jason came over to visit us for a week before Christmas.  We had a lot of fun, and we got the whole team together, as much as possible.  Even Elle came down from Boston, which was really great.  Agents Perry and Daniels were a little intimidated to meet ‘the great profiler’ aka Gideon, so of course to ease their minds we had to tell the most embarrassing stories we knew about him.  Elle had them all laughing with her recalling how he reacted when she called him ‘dad’ once, remember I told you about that?  It was a very long time ago now.  When I think about it, I can hardly believe the changes the BAU has gone through since then.  I think I know now how Dave must have felt when he rejoined the team after Jason left. 

 

            In any case, we had quite a full house on Christmas Eve, with Hotch and Jack, Jason and his son, Agent Perry with his son and wife,, Agent Daniels, Emily and her boyfriend, Elle, Elle’s husband and two daughters (I still can’t get over her having a family now!), Garcia and her boyfriend and one of her brothers who was over for the holiday, and JJ with her husband, and of course Derek and me.  The only person missing was Dave, but we made sure to make a toast in his memory.

 

            So after Christmas, it was back to work with lots of busy-ness.  We almost immediately had a case in Ohio, but it was fairly simple.  Honestly, I don’t know why the locals thought they needed our help on it.  But on the positive side, we made it back home in time for New Year’s Eve.

 

            I’m saving the best news for last.  I woke up on Christmas Day to find Derek already up.  This isn’t a strange thing on normal days, since he likes to exercise early in the morning, but on holidays he usually sleeps in.  Well, I went downstairs and he was sitting on the couch, looking at the tree with a cup of coffee in his hand, another on the side table for me, and this beautiful smile on his face.  It really was an amazing sight.  Anyway, he hands me this huge box, about the size of a cat carrier, and tells me ‘merry Christmas.’  It’s beautifully wrapped, so I take my time to spare the paper.  Inside is a plain box all taped up.  I undo the tape, open the box, only to find another box.  And inside that one is a series of Wal-Mart bags.  Inside the bags is a whole lot of bubble wrap.  At this point, I’m half-annoyed, half-amused, and Derek is practically rubbing his hands together in evil glee.  I finally get all the bubble wrap off to find a small velvet box.  I look at Derek – and he’s gotten off the couch and is down on one knee.  I nearly cried at that moment.  No words were really necessary, he knew what my answer would be.

 

            It’s not a super fancy engagement ring or anything – it’s just a plain band with a single small diamond embedded in it.  But it’s more than I could ever ask for.  Now I need to find one for him.  I was thinking I could come out to Nevada and you and I could take a day trip out to a shopping center or something, and you could help me pick one out.  We both want you to come to the wedding, but we’ll understand if you can’t, and this way at least you’ll have taken part in it.  Plus I wouldn’t trust myself to pick a good one.  We haven’t set a date yet, but we don’t want a big wedding, so it should be pretty soon.  I can come for that visit, and then you and I could travel back together.  You said flying’s not so bad with me, so maybe you won’t mind it?  Let me know as soon as possible.  I love you lots, Mom.  Derek sends his love as well.

 

Love,

Spencer  XOXOXO

I sure hope so. I spent the last week or so trying to convince myself it'd be in bad taste and not at all fluffy to kill off Mrs Reid (so Rossi took the hit instead, lol)
