A new Life

Work Text:

Life was strange once Reid had retired. For decades Luke had looked forward to this day, but now that it was here, it was as if something was wrong.
No calls from the hospital in the middle of the night. No dinners interrupted by the shrill sound of the pager. No car crash victims, no bullets that needed removing from brains.

Reid around for all family gatherings, all birthdays, all holidays.
It wasn’t bad, but It needed some getting used to.
