Tilting her head a little, Taryn listened, and her gaze fell to the floor when the redhead’s voice drew off and she sighed. Keeping an ‘oh, sorry’ for asking from slipping from her mouth, Taryn continued to hear the rest of Cameron’s explanation. “Oh.” She said, and was actually a little relieved. “Good.” She added, before amending it to, “It’d be kind of weird if I just…you know, bumped into a strange guy on the way to the bathroom or something.” 

Adjusting the strap of her backpack on her shoulder again, she found herself being a little…rambly. Was that a word? Probably not. “Not that my being here means you can’t like…have a guy over, you know. It’s your house.” Pushing her hair out of her face, Taryn heard the questions about food. “Um…I’m not picky.” She answered, and figured that whatever they got she would just be careful. Knowing what foods to avoid with her diabetes, she reasoned that she’d be fine and wouldn’t have to say anything about her condition. 

Speaking of which, she had to test her blood sugar. “Is the bathroom through there?” She asked, nodding toward a nearby door. 

"My home’s personal and safe," Cam said quietly, leaning against the wall behind her. "I don’t bring guys back here unless they’re close friends or I’m serious about them, so you won’t have to worry about that." It was personal, and now it wasn’t just about what made her comfortable either, and Cameron was aware of that, she was sharing this house with another person and that teenager had undoubtedly been in other situations that had the potential to compromise herself. She was not going to be put on the long list of people who had done that to her by any means. "It’s your house here too now, and I’m not about to bring a strange guy in that you don’t know."

There was a small chuckle that escaped Cameron’s lips as she pushed away from the wall. “Well, it’s your first night here, so it’s your pick on food, because I have learned really early on that it’s advantageous to eat whatever is in front of me, so I’ll grab the menus and you can choose.” It took Cameron a second to realize where the bathroom was, almost directing her to where it would have been in the apartment before remembering that they were in a different place and in a different situation now too. “Second door on the left. I’ll meet you in the kitchen after? It’s just the rest of the way down the hall.”

taryn-sawyer:

A guest room. Taryn missed the ‘guest’ part, mostly because she’d always been considered something of a guest—a temporary inhabitant—of the homes she’d been placed in over the years. The word that stuck out was ‘room’. To herself? The concept of privacy was odd to the teen’s ears, but she swallowed down the urge to clarify. Maybe it had been said earlier, that she wouldn’t just be crashing on the couch. Maybe the whole being-involved-in-a-bank-robbery and nearly being shot thing was part of this lapse in memory. However, Taryn still found herself staring curiously before catching herself doing so.

"Oh. Cool." She responded, nodding, before getting out of the car as well. Scraping the toe of her chuck taylors against the paved street, Taryn stepped up onto the sidewalk. Then, she turned and peered back at Cameron. "I’m guessing you’re not married or anything?" She spoke, before realizing it might sound sharp. "I mean, just because if you were, you probably would’ve said it, or you would’ve had to check in with him about letting a stray into the house." She added, trying to inject a little humor by referring to herself as a stray. Her stomach growled a moment later, and she wondered when she should check her blood sugar. 

"No… there was a point that I thought I might be, but…" Cam said, sighing softly before unlocking the door and pushing it open, turning and punching in the security code. "It didn’t end up working out for something long term. No guy though, so you shouldn’t have to worry about anyone unexpected roaming around until I start to get sleep deprived." She was more than aware of how strange it was that she was comfortable talking about her past with Micah, or the fact that was the closest that she came to married, but really, Cameron wasn’t even entirely sure that she was built for a long-term commitment anymore.

"So, what kind of foods do you like? There’s a pretty wide range of take out places around here that’ll deliver while you get settled, so it’s your pick." There was a pause while Taryn stepped into the house and Cameron locked the door behind them, tossing her bag on the bench in the entry and running her hands through her hair for a few seconds before tying it into a pony tail. "Want me to show you where you can put your things, or did you want to roam around a bit and get a little more comfortable?"

For the most part…yeah nine out of ten times we catch the bad guys we’re after. What I’m angry about is that this…god forgive me for using this language in such an elegant setting…this bastard is out there roaming around all smug because he hasn’t been caught yet. -sighs- I know as much as everyone else right now, but if I come up with any new information of course I’ll seek someone out from that team. -nods- Definitely not a nice place for attractive agents, male or female. 

You know the key in that sentence? -smiles softly- Yet. Eventually he will do something or someone will find something that is going to show what the truth is… -chuckles- It’s a place for letters and pens and that is all, nothing more and nothing less. 

Plan for the weekend? I was supposed to meet my grandmother in France for a few days.

Actuality? I’m staying in DC with a pager and a teenage girl to keep me company for a while. Luckily, according to Grandmum, it just means she’s going to have to do enough shopping for both of us and come to visit soon.

taryn-sawyer:

This woman was nice, and it was clear that she wanted to help, but Taryn still couldn’t get past the fact that she’d so easily forgiven her for pointing a gun at her. A hazard of the job? She bit her lip, wincing at the soreness and remembering that it had been cut open not too long ago. Eyes downcast as she momentarily dealt with the anger and fear associated with Heroine having hit her and then threatening her life, Taryn looked out the window. She heard the answer to her question, and nodded.

She was quiet for the rest of the ride, not sure what to ask or what else to say. She didn’t feel like she had any right to know more than she’d been told already. This was super temporary after all, right? No sense in getting attached to anything or anyone. Taryn tried not to do that, but sometimes she did get attached. She’d been hurt despite a deliberate attempt to close herself off. No matter how much she denied it, the girl wanted someone to care about her and what happened to her. She wanted someone to love her.

Maybe Garrett had, maybe he hadn’t. Taryn found it too hard to think about at length. She didn’t know that she loved him, but she had felt good that he’d noticed her, trusted her, and included her; not so much that he’d convinced her to join them in the bank heist, but…no one was perfect. Before she knew it, the car was stopping. Looking at the building outside, Taryn finally spoke. “Is that it? With the ivy.” It was actually really beautiful. The foliage might be seen by some as overwhelming, but Taryn saw it another way. It was being allowed to grow as it wanted. 

Cameron had learned at a young age that being angry with someone didn’t solve the problem. It wasn’t something that she had always readily accepted, but any means, but it certainly was something that she had realized fully after her daughter was killed. Being angry didn’t change anything in her life and it certainly hadn’t brought back anyone that she loved or cared about, that was for sure. More often than not Cameron had found that it hurt her more to stay angry at someone in her life than it did to let it go.

Taryn’s life hadn’t been easy by any means, and although she was fairly certain that it would probably raise question questions for the young woman who was sitting in the passenger seat of her vehicle. It wasn’t as though she could really say one way or another what it was like, questioning how it was that you ended up where you are, but she could say that she wished that the answers were easier to get.

The car was quiet when they pulled down Cam’s street, thankful for the first time that it wasn’t as active and bustling as the apartment complex that had somehow began to house other Bureau agents that were in and out at all times of the day. “It is… it was my grandfather’s. I have a guest room though that you can have that’s set up,” she said softly, getting out of the vehicle and leaning against the door. “I just recently moved, so a chunk of it is still finishing getting unpacked.”

taryn-sawyer:

Taryn adjusted the strap of her backpack on her shoulder. Her dark eyes focused on the ground for a few moments, to avoid the brightness of the sun. When she looked back up at Cameron, she squinted and shrugged her shoulders a little at the question. To be honest, she didn’t have anything else: just her clothes, some knick knacks in her bag, medicine, hairbrush, and toothbrush. Her fingertips closed around the chain of the necklace she wore, the charm hidden beneath the collar of her t-shirt.

"Nope." She answered. "I’m…ready." The girl added, before following the redheaded woman, stopping to glance back at the house. Breathing a sigh of relief, Taryn continued to walk away and to Cameron’s car. Getting into the passenger side, she gently tossed her bag in before taking a seat. Once they were both inside, and she’d fastened her seat belt, she took a breath. "Do you live nearby?" She asked. 

Cameron wasn’t going to lie and say she wouldn’t pull the girl’s file once she was safely settled in her office the next day, because she had a feeling that she’d never truly felt settled. There was a good chance that the girl had never known what it was like to have an actual sense of privacy either, though. Taryn had been in the system since she was a baby, and no matter how much Cameron might know what it is like to be pushed off to the side, she was able to say that she knew that her parents loved her no matter how much they were preoccupied.

"About fifteen minutes away, I still have an apartment nearby that I need to finish cleaning out, but I recently moved into DC," she said softly, opening the door for Taryn so she could slide in easily, before walking around to her side, giving the supervisor of the home a small nod before slipping in. "I don’t have a lot of food, so we’ll probably do take out tonight and then go grocery shopping tomorrow so we can grab some things that you like, if that sounds good to you."

ssa-agent-derek-morgan:

I do know we don’t always catch the bad guys, but this isn’t just your typical run-of-the-mill unsub. This unsub attacked the bureau. This one’s personal for all of us. -sighs softly- It’s…a little reassuring I guess, but I also know it has to get pushed to the side when more pressing cases come up and that’s frustrating too. -small smile- Ah, like getting unwanted attention from an unwanted admirer….not that I personally know what that is like. -pauses, then laughs- Kidding. Sure it’s happened, just maybe not in a little while.

You may not always, but I have a feeling that you’re pretty used to at least having some sense of accomplishment in ending whatever it was that you walked into. -smiles softly- It’s personal, yeah, a chunk of us have scars because of it, but should it drive us to the point that we’re mad about it? It’s probably the psychologist in me, but I don’t think it’s healthy to be angry about something that you can’t change, no matter how justified. -shakes her head- Probably, but… look, if it’s bugging you that much? Talk to that team. See if maybe a fresh pair of eyes could offer some insight into the case. -shifts and rubs a hand on the back of her neck- Yeah… not exactly unusual, but luckily they’re pretty much kept back by prison bars and guards.

taryn-sawyer:

It wasn’t that Taryn was wary of Cameron. She looked over at her curiously, not being used to people being so…unconditionally kind. “..okay” She spoke, slowly standing from her seat on the bench across from the group home she was currently living in. “Um, I’ll be right back.” Mustering up a half smile, she turned and headed into the group home, avoiding the other kids as she went.

Ignoring some of them asking where she was going, she stuffed her few belongings into a backpack. Her medicine, clothes, a couple pairs of shoes, and a hairbrush. Some hair ties scattered the bottom of her bag, but no makeup products. Taryn wasn’t fond of it, and she found that her skin was usually sensitive to cosmetics. Grabbing her toothbrush, floss, and face wash from the bathroom, she paused. She was about to go and stay with the FBI agent who had been negotiating the bank robbery she’d been in involved in. The whole situation was weird, but she knew that leaving this place was the right choice. She hadn’t admitted it in detail, but one of the guys had been creeping her out. It’d started with him checking her out, but after he’d cornered her in the laundry room, the fear set in. 

Squinting in the sun as she returned outside, Taryn was quick in her descent down the porch steps. “All set.” She said, her tone slightly nervous. She didn’t want to make this woman regret her decision to allow her to crash at her place. 

For the most part, Cameron was more than aware of the fact that the young woman in front of her was weary of what she was offering, and probably wasn’t entirely sure how to handle the fact that she was offering shelter with no particular requirements. How was she supposed to explain that she did understand what it was like to be stuck in a corner with next to no options besides the one that was laid in front of you? The answer was that Cameron couldn’t, not in a way that the woman would believe her at least.

It was further complicated by the fact that there was something innately familiar about how the woman moved, and she wasn’t entirely sure how to pinpoint something like that quite yet. She’d narrowed out the people that she’d been in negotiations with, partly because of the fact that she was too familiar with the movements for it to be someone she had encountered less than a handful of times, at most.

There hadn’t been a whole lot of prep time for the room, any… if Cameron was completely honest with herself, she was currently riding on a whole lot of DayQuil and the knowledge that hot tea was going to be her main source of energy. The decision may have been halfway impulsive, taking the DA up on the suggestion of finding someone that would be willing to step in and advocate on behalf of Taryn. This… probably not entirely what the man had meant with the suggestion though. “Want to pick anything else up on the way out? Or just head to the house and get settled into you room?”
