Heartbeat of Absolute

Chapter 23

"Oh my…" Garcia squeaked really loudly before she hugged both Amy and Reid, squeezing them to the maximum. "My babies are getting married."

"Congratulation, lovebirds."

"Looks like we have more reasons added to our celebration today." JJ said as she hugged Amy followed by Reid.

"My man." Morgan gave Reid a hug. "But you were telling me all those romantic dinner you were planning on to ask her, but you just couldn't wait, don't you?"

"Actually, the plan is still on …"

"What made you ask her today then?"

Reid looked at Amy and when she nodded. "Well, I thought I couldn't find any other perfect moment to pop up the question when she said she was pregnant."

Utter silence reigned in the room for one second and Amy started laughing, looking at the team's facial expression.

"We're going to have a baby genius?" Garcia asked, still looked wordlessly with happiness mixing in her face.

Amy walked towards Reid, hugging him on the side while placing one of her palms on her stomach. "Mayday everybody, we have a baby genius coming on the way."

Reid had to close his ears with his palms when the team squeaked with extra excitement.

"Oh, I just can't wait." Garcia hugged Amy again. "How far are you?"

"Four weeks."

"You're going to be a great father, Reid, and Amy, you are going to be a wonderful mother." Hotch wished the couple.

"Pretty boy, you are making speechless day by day."

"Guys, enough with us already, we have gathered here today to celebrate someone else big day."

"Don't worry, Spencer." Will poured wine for everyone except for Amy, who preferred taking a juice. "We don't mind sharing."

Taking the glass of wine for himself, Reid looked at his team members. "Guys, I would like to say something."

"What is it, Reid?" Kate asked.

"First, I would like to thank each and everyone in this room because if it isn't for you guys, I don't know where would I have be, worse, I don't even know if I would still be still alive today."

"Hotch, Jack was right, you are an awesome father. Thank you for having me in your house, taking care of me like your son. I just can't thank you enough for that."

"You don't have too, Spencer. You always has been a family to me, and I'm happy that finally, you have a family on your own."

"Rossi, you're the best colleague anyone can have. Thank you for being there for me, talking me out of my problems …"

"Kid, just stop. I promised myself that I won't cry not matter what, so don't make me break my own determination." Rossi showed his hands up. "I'm always proud of you."

Reid smiled. "Kate, despite having your own issues, you never stepped aside from me. Thank you for being such a good listener, best friend…"

"Reid, you would have done the same thing for me."

"JJ, I can never ask for any better big sister than you. Thank you for watching over me in my each step of recovery. Will, you too, thank you."

"You don't have to say all that, Spence and please, don't make me cry on my wedding anniversary."

"Garcia, you showed me how colorful life can be. Thank you for being the one person to show me the true meaning of life."

"Oh, Junior G-man, you're making me emotional already. You're going to spoil my makeup."

"Morgan, honestly, I don't have any words to describe what you truly meant to me. As annoying as you can be, I appreciate every single thing you have done for me. I don't have any big brother on my own and I don't know even if I do have, he would have done the same things you have done for me. I am who I am today, after the shooting all because of you, so thank you."

"Today is one the day you make me so speechless, kid and I love you too."

"Finally, Amy." Reid looked at his beautiful fiancée. "I don't even know how I got myself so lucky. You have so many years ahead of you, thank you for deciding to share it with me, to be my better half."

"Oh, Spence, you're too cute." Amy kissed his cheeks.

"So, in return for all these heart touching speech, we get to kiss you too?" Rossi asked.

"Erm, no."

"We don't take no for an answer. Morgan, please do the honors and catch him."

"What? Guys …"

Amy started giggling when she saw Reid started running around with Morgan and Rossi, trying to catch him.

Amy sat down on the sofa beside Reid, far behind from the team. She tried hard not to laugh, looking at Reid holding both his hands on his cheeks.

"Oh, come on, not you too."

"You're lucky, Derek didn't kiss your lips."

"Amy, don't make me puke my dinner."

Amy chuckled. As she looked at her stomach with one of her palms on it, Amy said. "You're listening, peanut? Your daddy is going to be a little grumpy tonight."

"You do realize that she can't hear you just yet?"

Amy narrowed her eyebrows. "You just said, it's a she."

"What's wrong with having a daughter?"

"How can you possibly know that? And besides, I prefer on going for a boy, a mini Reid, just as nerd and cute like his father."

"I think I would prefer a girl, just as sweet, as understanding, and as loving as her mother."

"So, it's either a girl or a boy, want to see who wins?"

"How about a girl now and a boy in the future, which will make both us as the winner."

"Interesting suggestion, Dr. Reid. I think I will buy it." Amy leaned in and with Reid just about to meet her lips halfway, Morgan whistled.

Amy realized that they just had everyone's eyes on them instead of the television, which previously had, thanks to Morgan.

"I… I'm just going to get some water." Amy quickly left the awkward location, leaving Reid to be the center of attention.

"We got underage kids in the room, you might want to keep your lips to yourself, Pretty boy."

Reid probably wouldn't have never blushed like that in his life before. "Guys, can we turn back to stare at television again?"

"Thank you for staying back and help us clean, Spence."

"You're welcome. We're going to lead back home. It's getting late."

JJ hugged Amy and Spencer before she bend down slightly, looking at Amy's stomach. "You, the little one, have no idea what an awesome parents you're about to have."

Reid and Amy smiled before both turned back to leave JJ's house.

Reid intertwined her hands with his, and walked towards their car. "It's a perfect day, isn't it?"

"It is."

Halfway through the drive back home, Reid stopped at the signal and laughed to himself.

"What are you laughing about?"

"There," Reid pointed toward the side of the road.

"I still don't get what's the laugh about?"

"That's the same place I was shot."

"Oh, I … you see your near death experience place and can laugh about it?"

"Come to think about it, the shooting might have taken some time out of my life, but it made me realize what a great friends I have, gave me a beautiful fiancée, a baby, so, yeah, I can laugh about it.
