I groaned as I punched the down button for the elevator, again and again. By the third time, I established that I was going to have to walk the stairs of the BAU building, in my red leather stilettos.
And I KNEW this would have to happen to me, on my birthday, of all days. And on Halloween. Truth be told, I'd rather be ANYWHERE, than the BAU building at Quantico after dark. I sighed and pushed the nurse cap onto my head, and bit a glossy red lip as I leaned down and slid my feet out of the red stilettos.
"And I ask myself again.. Why in the name of God, of all that is holy.. Did I HAVE TO BE a Naughty Zombie Nurse" I mumbled to myself, as I looked down at the theatrical blood that was drying, on my arms, my legs and my face.
And then, it got a little bit worse.. For almost FIVE YEARS I've been the secretary for Hotch and his team. But I keep to myself, most of the time. I'm not really a people person.
But.. In that five years, I did manage to develop a crush and attraction to one Dr. Spencer Reid.. Naturally, it's completely one sided, so this rambling is a moot point, now isn't it?
The reason I said it got worse is that when I turned around, after about the eighth time of cursing (in Italian and some Cajun) at the non working elevator, I found him standing there.
My entire body turned bright red and I really didn't say anything. I'm just the office copy girl, not like he's ever noticed me or anything.
But, then he clears his throat and says quietly, "Happy Birthday."
I looked at him and smiling a little said "Thanks. Just headed out for drinks with some friends. What about you? Any Halloween plans?"
He shook his head and then we fell quiet again.
I shivered, and he smiled and then said "You realize, it is completely impractical, right?" I raised a brow and asked, "What exactly?" He blushed and clearing his throat looked me up and down before answering, "Your costume. You're going to freeze."
I shrugged and then said quietly, "Nah.. But thanks for the reminder. Next Halloween, I will definitely NOT be wearing this again."
He laughed quietly, and then blurted out quietly, "We can walk down, together? I mean if you want..."
I nodded, because the janitor had began to cut all the lights in the building off by now and as I stated before, this building REALLY, REALLY gives me the creeps after dark.
The lights over our head went out, and I shrieked. He snickered a little and then said "It's just dark.. I'm scared of it too, actually. But it's not so bad when you're.."
I held my cellphone up with the screen lit up and then waited for him to finish. Instead of finishing, he leaned in and kissed me. It was a really, really deep kiss, almost like he'd been wanting to do it for a really, really long time. I kissed back, just as willingly.
When we stopped kissing, he smiled and said "Interesting.. I always thought the shade of lipgloss you wore meant it'd taste like strawberry.. But it's cherry."
I laughed a little and then held a finger to his lips, and cut off the rest of his nervous rambling with a kiss of my own.
He raised a brow and asked me why. I smiled and said "Interesting.. I always wondered if a female kissed you, would it make you not ramble."
He laughed and then said "Ahh. So you turned my line around on me."
We'd started kissing again, getting heavier, more towards the side of completely indecent, and then suddenly, out of nowhere six flashlights appeared aimed at us.
I think we both turned bright red, when we realized it was Hotchner, Garcia, Prentiss, JJ, Rossi, and Morgan.
And then to my shock, Spencer picked me up and then said quietly, "So... I'm thinking that this is our cue.. I have a hot date with a Naughty Zombie Nurse, and I've been told it's never a good idea to keep them waiting."
I laughed and he carried me off down the hall, leaving his team members, and me, completely shocked as I was being carried.
Guess I don't need to say I had a very very happy birthday..
Oh and an FYI? Fake blood is really, really sticky, and hard to wash off of two people. But that's all I'm saying. ;)
