Author's Note: This is in response to comment_fic prompt: Criminal Minds, Reid/Garcia, late night talks. Enjoy!
Spencey! I have to ask you a very important question!
Penelope? Do you have any idea how late it is?
I know it's late, but this really is important!
Then ask your question, so that I can go back to sleep. We do have to work in a few hours.
Okay, okay...what kind of cake do you want for your birthday?
What kind of cake do you want for your birthday? Your birthday is-
I know when my birthday is, Garcia! What I don't know is why you thought this was actually important enough to call me at 2:00 in the morning!
I'm sorry, Spencer. It's just that...
Well, Derek wants to make you a cake but was too bashful to ask you himself. This is the first birthday where you two have been a couple and my chocobaby doesn't want to mess up.
...Red velvet, with vanilla icing and lots of sprinkles. Now can I go back to sleep?
Yes, genius baby! Sweet dreams!
Hey, Spencer. How did you know it was me?
That would be because of the lovely invention that is Caller ID.
Right, of course! Well, I have to ask you a question.
When don't you?
Very funny. So...what was your first impression of me?
My first impression of you? I suppose the easiest answer would be...overwhelming.
Overwhelming? How so?
Well, I don't know if you realize this, but you have a commanding presence that almost demands people near you take notice. You're all neon colors and bright smiles. It can be...overwhelming.
Oh. Well, I'll take that as a compliment. Do you want to know my first impression of you?
If it equates me to some cute and cuddly animal with geeky glasses, then no.
Aww, you're no fun!
Good night, Garcia.
Hey, Spencer. How are you feeling?
...Lonely. Derek had to leave once visiting hours were over. But he promised he'd be back first thing tomorrow.
And be back he will...You know, you really scared us back there, Spencer.
I know. I'm sorry.
Now I want you to promise me that you're never going to do something like that again.
I promise...to do my best.
Will you stay on the phone with me until I fall asleep?
Of course I will.
So, what's it like to be with the sexy man in the BAU?
It's...it's awe-inspiring at times.
Awe-inspiring? How so?
Well, for one, like you said, he's the "sexy man in the BAU" and he wants to be with me. That's pretty amazing. Guys like him used to torment guys like me in high school.
Hey, now! Derek is hardly like those asses back at your school.
I know, but as far as stereotypes go, it was unlikely for us to be together.
Okay, so what else has you in awe?
Well...it's amazing how...tender he can be. How he can make me feel like I'm a priceless treasure.
Awww! Oh, Spencer, even though I love Kevin, you are making me crazy jealous!
Yes, I hit the jackpot as far as boyfriends are concerned.
Yes, you did!
I have something to tell you!
No, I have something to tell you!
Well, I get to go first because I called you!
Fine, then. But make it quick!
Kevin proposed! I'm engaged!
Congratulations! So am I!
Derek proposed to me at his place tonight. I'm engaged as well!
Oh, we are so meeting up tomorrow! We can totally have a double ceremony!
I'll come pick you up tomorrow! Bye!
