Fandom: Criminal MindsAuthor: EbyRating: FRMPairing: Morgan/HotchContent Warning: ANGST.Spoilers: General Season 3 for Hotch's divorceSummary: Morgan's intuition helps...Disclaimer: They don't belong to me. If they did, this pairing would SO be canon now! Hah.
Haley told me the paperwork was coming. Yeah, I know… weird to be friendly with the ex, isn't it? But she loves Aaron, and so do I, so it's all good.
I knew exactly when he opened it. Most folks think Hotch is a stone-face. And yeah, okay… he can be. But when you know someone… I mean *really* know them, you learn to read them. I learned to read Hotch long before we were lovers.
The divorce was necessary. And they had managed to keep it respectful, almost friendly. But even though Aaron had started a new life with me, a part of him would always mourn the dream life left behind. For the young son inevitably caught in the middle.
And so I go to him. A knock on the door that I don't wait to be acknowledged.
His smile when he sees me tells me everything.
You do good work even when you are sleepy. Who would have thought that I could get all happy over a Morgan/Hotch pairing.Karen01/27/081000
