Hotch is the most frustrating man on the planet. In fact, Reid thinks, Hotch might be the most frustrating man who has ever been on the planet. Ever. In the whole course of human history, Reid is willing to bet there has never been an individual as bull-headedly stubborn as Hotch.
Reid knows -and if Reid knows, everyone knows- that Hotch wants him. It’s not like he’s subtle. It’s not like even Reid could miss it. Will Hotch do anything about it, though?
