I do not own BtVS or NCIS L.A. I only own my twisted imagination!
At some point, all the team had seen the wedding band around Callen’s neck. However, none had been brave enough to ask about it. It had happened not long after Callen being burned and finding out about his sister. He had uncharacteristically taken advantage of the leave that was offered. All the team knew was that he had gone on vacation and returned wearing the band. When asked his only response had been, “went to Rome.”
Kensi knew that G had been seeing someone since before he was shot. It was the one and only time she had met his significant other. The day after Callen’s attack Kensi had walked into his hospital room to see a tiny blonde arguing with Sam.
In any other instant, Kensi would have been impressed, but she was worried about Callen. She stood fascinated as a tiny blonde went toe-to-toe with an ex navy SEAL.
The entire time Callen was in the hospital the blonde had stayed with him. At the time, the only one who seemed to have a clue about the identity of the blonde was Hetty. More intriguingly, Hetty had forbidden them from doing any background searches. When they had asked why, Hetty had informed them, “The woman is more of a ghost than her partner.”
Kensi could see that she obviously cared about Callen. Buffy’s smile when Callen had awoken was blinding. Kensi watched fascinated, as Callen for once, appeared so open. The mysterious partner kissed his cheek and whispered something in his ear and left. The whole team wondered who she was but at the time, no answer was given.
So here they were, in the office. Deeks and Kensi were watching fascinated as Sam teased G about going home to his little ‘wifey‘.
Callen smirked, it a smirk that promised retribution. He was laughing, “I’ll tell her you said that.”
Sam snorted, “What will she do?”
Hetty surprised them once again with her stealthy appearance. She informed him dryly, “You would be surprised Mr Hanna exactly what Mrs Callen can do.” G was the only once who could tell she was desperately trying to refrain from laughing.
Sam knew he was missing something he just didn’t know what. The answer came from an amused Californian who had made as quiet an entrance as Hetty. She teased her husband’s partner, “I could kick your ass.”
Sam was dismissive, “I’ve heard it, but I don’t believe it.”
The younger agent/cop watched fascinated at the scene unfolding. Deeks was struggling not to drool and Kensi was wondering why the blonde was so sure that she could kick Sam’s ass. Hetty shook her head and gave G’s wife a searching look, “You won’t break my agent will you Buffy?”
Buffy shook her head and looked as innocent as possible. “Of course not Hetty. After all, I rely on him to protect G’s ass out there.”
Sam looked solemn, “It’s a difficult job.”
Callen did not like the idea if his wife and partner ganging up on him. Therefore, he decided to distract his wife. He settled on, “don’t break my partner and we’ll have lunch.”
Buffy looked amused, “Relax hubby dearest I only use my powers for good.”
Sam was starting to pout. He was a trained SEAL and everyone assumed he would lose.
Ten minutes later, he understood exactly why Callen and Hetty assumed that he would lose. Buffy may be tiny but she certainly packed a punch. He had never sparred with anyone who had such lightening quick reflexes. He would hope to spar with her again even if she did land him on his ass.
He gratefully accepted her hand up. He accepted the banter from the team. There was no way he could escape it gracefully.
Callen had been standing with Kensi and Deeks watching Buffy fight. He watched enjoying the sheer joy on his wife’s face. He knew how much she enjoyed sparring. Although, Callen didn’t mind helping Buffy find other ways to burn off excess energy.
Callen heard Deeks whisper to his partner, “She’s scarier than Hetty.”
Callen snickered, “Just wait until Buffy and Hetty start plotting. Now that is scary.”
Buffy came up beside him, he instinctively wrapped his arm around her waist. “Buffy meet Agent Kensi Blye and Detective Deeks.”
Buffy smiled, “Great to meet ya. Sorry but I’m stealin’ my hubby to eat.”
Callen frowned, “Not that I don’t want to but what about Hetty?”
Buffy had a knowing grin, “I came with gifts.”
Callen understood immediately what his sneaky wife had done. As they walked off the team saw Callen laugh, “You bribed her with tea?”
Kensi saw Deeks was zoned. She rolled her eyes and started waving a hand in her face. He whimpered, “It’s not fair why can’t I land someone that hot?”
Kensi clapped a hand on his back, “I think it’s your sparkling personality.”
Sam laughed, “She’s got you there Deeks.”
Deek’s pouted it just wasn’t fair. Yet there was hope, after all, Callen had found his soul mate. That meant there was hope that he would find his own. In truth, he had already found his own. All he needed to do was open his eyes; she was closer than he might realise.
