: Agent Derek Morgan is no stranger to the evils of the job, the constant repetition of hate and murder he sees everyday. That he's grown numb and found nightly solace at the bottom of a bottle or a glass of something strong, hopefully strong enough to help him forget if only for a short while, hasn't rendered him immune, however, when one of their own winds up in the daily grind. Reid falls prey, yet again, and Derek, weathered in the normalcy of violence, makes it his mission to see him through the storm.
It happened again.
Like the first time, and all those close calls in between, Derek Morgan felt helpless to do anything about it. He could only let his drink fall to the counter, its weight too much for the sudden weakness in his muscles, as the news settled in, deafening the world around him, causing him to go blind with sudden rage and fear and desperation, until at what bar he sat in what city in what state in what country no longer mattered. After getting that call, the few miles distancing him from the BAU felt like entire light years away.
