Why?

Title: Why?
Author: berryblue_girl
Rating: G
Genre/Warnings: Angst, Spoliers for the beginning of Season 3 concerning Gideon
Summary: Spencer wants to know why.
Disclaimer: I don't own the series or Spencer.
Author's Note: This was written for the One Character Drabble challenge over at crimeland. Hope you like it!

Spencer could feel it coming as he carefully placed Gideon's letter back in its envelope. He could feel it coming as he gathered up the gun and badge. As he walked outside, he shivered despite the warm night air. He climbed into his car and set Gideon's things in the passenger seat. His brain kept sending out the signals move arms to buckle seat belt and use right hand to turn the ignition, but his heart wouldn't allow it.

Spencer wrapped his arms tightly around himself, leaning forward as an all-too-familiar wave of emotions crashed over him. He bit his bottom lip until he tasted blood on his tongue. He felt tears run down his cheeks and nose. His body shook with sobs he wouldn't let free. That day began playing like a bad song in his head...over and over and over!

"Dad, please don't leave! We need you, especially Mom!"

"I know things are difficult, Dad, but if you stay, it can get better!"

"Dad, please!"


Spencer slowly sat up and leaned back against the seat. He looked at what remained of his mentor and whimpered, "Why am I so easy to leave behind?"

There was no answer.

AN- Thank you for reading! Reviews are cherished!

Awww, poor baby. :'( ♥

(But I think you should have kept this "secret"... there will be voting for that challenge ;) You should ask Tale, though.)

Yesh, sad!Spencer is a bummer. *cuddles him*

Well, I didn't post a link at the team comm. It's just on my journal and it's not like this is a secret valentine or something. I didn't want to wait to post 'cause RL is crazy and knowing me, I'll forget about it.

It's also a kink of mine, and I almost feel bad about it ;) *cuddles him too*

Ahah, yeah, I totally get that. I know I have fics I wrote for challenges that I haven't posted on my journal yet because I keep forgetting. ;P

I think the "problem" with sharing it is that it could influence the voting part of the challenge... team members voting for each other (or not voting for a great drabble just because they know it's by someone not on their team). It shouldn't happen but since sometimes it does, I think that's the reason why entries are usually kept secret until after the voting period is over. I'm not sure if the rule applies to personal journals too, though. I always assumed that it did, but it may be just me.

Yeah...well, the damage is done. In the future, I'll just post and set it to a custom setting until after the challenge is over. Either way, I'm showing off my ficcy! Part of my posting buzz. Lolz

Comedy is simply a funny way of being serious.

Let me tell you a riddle...

You're waiting for a train, a train that will take you far away.
You know where you hope this train will take you, but you don't know for sure.
But it doesn't matter.
How can it not matter to you where that train will take you?

Because you'll be together.
