Meeting The Boyfriend

Chapter Text

It had been a year since Zack had been released from the asylum. After he had gotten out, he had moved in with his Mother and Father, who had moved closer to visit him while he was in there. That was until around three months ago when he moved in with the guy that he was dating.

She and Jack haven’t met him yet. That is until tonight, Zack and his boyfriend, Spencer Reid, had invited them to their apartment for dinner.

Now just because they had not met him, doesn’t mean that they did not know any thing about him. They knew that he was an FBI agent who worked at the BAU, Zack had excitedly told them the number of PHDs and Doctorates he had, the BAU team he was a part of had amazing success rates, and he was apparently well known in academic circles.

But that didn’t mean that they knew him, and that didn’t mean that mean that he was going to be good for Zack.

Maybe she was being a bit over protective of Zack, especially considering the fact that they hadn’t really seen or talked to him for years.

But then again they hadn’t talked to him because he was locked in an asylum after he had been manipulated into helping a serial killer and confessing to murder he didn’t actually commit.

So maybe she was correct to be over protective. Maybe she wasn’t even being over protective, maybe she was just being the right amount of protective.

And she knew that Jack was feeling the same way.

They got to Zack and Spencer’s apartment five minutes earlier then they were supposed to.

“Do you think we should go in?” She asked him.

“Yeah, we’re only five minutes early.”

Angela rang the doorbell and waited for someone to answer.

Angela rang the doorbell and waited for someone to answer.

Zack was the one to answer.

“Jack, Angela, your early.”

“Yeah, is that ok.”

“Of course it is, we have had the food ready for ten minutes. It’s mainly cold food, so it can be out. And the chicken is being kept warm in the oven.”

“That’s good.”

“Do you guys want to come in?” He asked them earnestly.

“Yeah of course buddy, that’s why we came here.” Jack said.

Zack smiled at them.

“Spencer they’re here.” He called out as he led them through the door way.

“I’m in the kitchen.” The other man called out.

They all went to the kitchen.

This was the first time that they had ever gotten to lay eyes on the famous Spencer Reid, and Zack had not been lying when he said that he was attractive.

He turned around and said

“Hi, you must be Jack and Angela. Zack has told me a lot about you guys.”

Zack smiled at him and then at them and said

“Why don’t we start eating.”


“I think that went well.” Angela said as she and Jack left the apartment building.

“Me too.”

“Spencer seems nice, and he and Zack seem very sweet together.”

“Yeah they are.”

Sweet was a bit of understatement. Zack and Spencer were adorable together, they seemed to complement each other very well.

And Spencer was very nice. She could understand why Zack liked him.

They were very similar in some ways and different in others.

It made Angela happy to know that Zack had found someone who loved him and understood him and cared.

He deserves it.
