The Start

By Hana Sýkorová

Romance / Drama

Chapter 1

Emily Prentiss always hated the beeping sound of the alarm clock. It was like someone would throw cold water in her face. And today she is really annoyed at the sound she's hearing every morning for her whole life. She groans and covers her head, trying to mute the loud beeping. She can feel the warm body next to her and hear the same groaning as hers. She envelops the person in tight embrace.

"Do we really have to go? It's not that important. Every year it's the same. We win, then we go to the bar and we drink. Let's stay home just for once, please?" She whispers to JJ's ear and kisses her cheek. JJ leans into Emily's slender body and sighs deeply, before she turns to face the brunette and kisses her on the lips.

"As much as I like the thought of staying in bad with you the whole day I have to remind you that it is important. And mostly to you remember?" She watches the woman next to her with her eyes closed and smiles. She loves watching Emily sleep. She looks so peaceful.

"Come on, Em. We have to kick some asses today. Well you and Morgan are kicking asses I'll only shoot, but still."She waits for some response from her girlfriend but she stays silent. JJ leans closer and whispers into her ear. "Ok, well what if I promise you a reward? When we'll get home today after we come back from the bar we will have a lot of alone time. My hormones are starting to get crazy and I have some really interesting ideas in mind." She smiles as Emily opens her eyes quickly and sits up on the bad. That causes JJ to laugh.

"Ok, I'll get up, but you'll get me a coffee." She then rolls on top of JJ and kisses her deeply. She feels her deepen the kiss. And as the kiss starts to get heated she pulls away and smirks at JJ as she let out a small groan. "You will have to wait till tonight to show me some of those ideas of yours. But you're right. I'm looking forward to kick some asses. Did you notice that in the last two years no female agent's registered for hand to hand combat?" She laughs as she goes to the bathroom.

JJ sits up and stretches her still tired body. Her hand automatically rubs her stomach and JJ smiles as she thinks about that in six months there will be a new addition to their strange family. She walks to the bathroom and stands next to Emily who is currently brushing her teeth.

"I think they are afraid of you. I wouldn't challenge you, that's for sure." She smiles and puts one arm around Emily's waist to pull her closer.

"Hmmm… So you're afraid of me too, Jen?" she fakes hurt look but the spark in her eyes gives her away.

"No, of course not. Well, sometimes when we're in the field or when you're interviewing a suspect. You can be pretty scary. But I love it when we're on a raid and you're wearing a vest. You're so damn hot in your Kevlar." She smiles sweetly and starts to kiss Emily on the side of her neck. Emily closes her eyes as JJ's lips find her pulse point.

"Jen, please… stop, you know I won't be able to stop if you keep going like that." A quiet moan escapes her lips and finally JJ stops and looks at her through the mirror.

"That was just a taste for tonight. So you shouldn't play any drinking game with Morgan. I'd like you to remember what I'm going to do to you."

"Hey, we're not that bad." Emily complains and slaps her girlfriend playfully into her arm with a laugh. JJ only raises an eyebrow in a 'really' way.

"'Not that bad'? Are you kidding? Last month, when we were celebrating me moving in here with you, the two of you were competing on who would drink more shots of whiskey in ten minutes while I was stuck on orange juice. When we got home we made love. It was one of the best nights of my life and when you woke up in the morning you didn't remember anything. And now tell me you are a saint." She says while giggling when she sees the guilty look on Emily's beautiful face. JJ already teased her about that night on several occasions with some very interesting descriptions of their fun in bed. And Emily came to regret the drinking game with Morgan more and more each time her beautiful girlfriend mentioned it.

"I really wish I could remember that night." She sighs sadly. "OK, Jen. I won't play with Morgan tonight but he will be so disappointed when he won't get his pity drink, because I'm gonna kick his ass today."

"That's my girl." JJ spins Emily around and pulls her into a deep kiss. They stay close in silence for a few moments longer when Emily pulls away enough to look into the blonde's eyes.

"And are you sure it's safe? I mean with all that noise on the range?" She says as her right hand gently stokes her lover still flat stomach.

"Yes I'm sure. If you don't believe me ask Reid. But you probably shouldn't because you would lose your status of a nerd for asking the same question for at least fifth time, honey." JJ says as with a giggle. Though she knows that Emily only cares about the little one's well-being and she loves her even more for that.

"I just don't want anything to happen to our little peanut." Emily whispers into her ear as if she's reading JJ's thoughts. She sighs deeply as her hand still rubs JJ stomach, imagining the tiny baby inside… And she smiles at the thought.

"I know, Em. But peanut is totally safe. Nothing is going to happen to him or her. They're too small to even register the sound of the gun. Now get ready so we can show the entire bureau not to mess with Garcia's 'Lesbian crime fighters'" JJ took Emily's hand and leads her back to their bedroom while Emily's laughing at the comment.

"You know, I really think Hotch should have her tested for drugs."
