“If you could have a superpower, what would it be?”

 

Reid glanced up from his paperwork to give Morgan a Look.  “What?”

 

“Any superpower at all: the ability to fly, walk through walls, x-ray vision… Take your pick, man.”

 

“Mmm, the ability to make you actually do your work.”

 

“Too bad, Hotch already has that one.”

 

“Har-de-har.  So why hasn’t he used it today?”

 

Morgan spread his hands wide.  “I’m already done.  See?  Works every time.”

 

“Ah, so that’s why you are attempting to divert my attention from my work by posing inane hypothetical inquiries.”

 

“If I had a superpower it would definitely be the ability to translation your nerdtalk into normalspeak.”

 

“That doesn’t take a superpower, just a half-way decent dictionary.”

 

“You still haven’t answered my question.”

 

Reid sighed.  “I guess I would want a sixth sense.”

 

“What, like Haley Joel Osment’s ‘I see dead people’ type sixth sense?”

 

He fiddled with his pen.  “No, more like an ability to see the future, even if it’s just the near future.”

 

Morgan nodded.  “Would definitely be helpful on the job.”

 

“In more ways than one,” he answered quietly, eyes fixed on Gid- Rossi’s office door.

 

This did not escape his companion’s attention.  He shrugged.  “It’s difficult at first, I know.  But I still imagine it would be better to get to know a person before they ditch you than never to know them at all.”

 

“Loved-and-lost type thing?”

 

“Something like that.”

 

Reid stared down at the papers before him without actually seeing them.  At last he shook his head slightly, and looked up at Morgan, a small smirk on his lips.  “X-ray vision, huh?  I can see where that might become a burden in certain situations.”

 

“Oh?”

 

“Sure.  Any time you walk into a public restroom, for instance.”

 

Morgan snorted.  “Or Strauss’s office.”

 

Reid laughed.  “Or Rossi’s.”

 

“Oh man, that is not a mental image I ever want to think about again.”

 

A snicker.  “But then you’d be able to answer that age-old question.”

 

Morgan gave him a suspicious look.  “Which one would that be?”

 

“Boxers or briefs.”
