11 years later :
Eleven years have passed since Maura gave birth to Elizabeth and Victoria. The Isles family was still leaving in the beautiful house they purchased when Maura was pregnant and after extensive remodeling and improvement in their security system the little family was now feeling perfectly safe and comfortable in their home.
Maura who was now 51 years old was working at the Medical Examiner's office again.
After staying home for another four years after the twins were born she decided that it was time for her to go back to work as soon as they started school. Despite having stayed away from the professional world for eight years Maura had no trouble adjusting to the new procedures and technology.
Actually the biggest challenged she had to face was to work as a simple ME under someone else's authority. After years of being the Chief Medical Examiner for the State of Massachusetts Maura found herself having answer to someone's authority and report to him.
Luckily, after a few weeks of observing her new boss struggling with his administrative duties Maura suddenly remembered why she resigned in the first place.
Now free of all responsibilities Maura was able to do what she truly loved : perform autopsies and truly assist Jane and her team in their investigations without feeling overwhelmed or held back by the paper work. But most importantly what she enjoyed the most about her new position was that she was able to pick up her children at school everyday and help them with their homework and spend as much time as she wanted with them.
After thirty years in the force Jane's professional life had changed dramatically since Maura and her had met. Frankie had finally managed to become a Detective and was working with Frost who was now a Sergeant but most importantly she was now Captain Rizzoli in charge of the entire Homicide department.
When the twins reached the age of five she first got the opportunity to become a Lieutenant and when they reached ten Cavanaugh decided to retire and Jane was offered to take over his position.
After years of observing struggling him with politics and protocol Jane was more than reluctant to accept a position that would force her to make concessions and remain politically correct and bend over in front of the mayor.
Luckily for the people of Boston after consulting with Maura and her children Jane decided to accept the promotion and after thirty years of gradually earning more respect and responsibilities she was finally able to call the shots and run the department the way she wanted.
The twins were now 11 and had just started middle school. Despite not being identical twins Elizabeth and Victoria looked very much alike and were as close as two siblings could possibly be and had even invented their own language that allowed them to talk to each other without anyone understanding any of it.
Despite being Maura's biological children and having inherited her intelligence the twins showed no interest in science what so ever and despite having being raised like Louis to have an open mind on history and art what the twins loved more than anything else was listening to Jane telling them stories about her glorious days as a Detective. After spending their childhood listening to their parents rambling about how they gave justice to the people of Boston the two little girls had grown a particular taste for justice and while Elizabeth was determined to walk into Jane's footstep Victoria was determined to become a lawyer to help the less fortunate.
Despite being only eleven the two little girls already showed a growing interest in their future careers and a determination that Maura and Jane could not fight even if they wanted.
Louis was now sixteen and had just graduated from high school at the top of his class and unlike his sisters was everything but vocal about his dream career.
Despite having a very clear idea of what he wanted to do with his life he was more than reluctant to share his project with his mothers, especially with Maura who always had high hopes for him.
After the twins were born when he was five year old Louis made it his personal mission to be the best big brother possible for the twins and to protect the against everything he considered being a possible threat.
When the twins finally came home after spending ten days in the NICU Louis was barely able to sleep because he had nightmares about Dean and would systematically violently attack who ever was trying to get to close to his sisters.
Unfortunately being adorable babies the twins were often approached by strangers in the street or at the store or even when they visited Jane at the station and Louis' over protective attitude quickly became a serious issue.
Luckily for him Jane who understood better than anyone how he felt and why he felt the need to protect them managed to slowly calm him down and keep him for having violent rage burst against strangers.
She remembered killing Hoyt because he threatened Maura's life and remember how badly Louis reacted when Dean threatened her as well and knew that the anger and paranoia that was building inside of him was not healthy and that it would eat him alive if she didn't help him.
Luckily for little Louis after over a year of intense talking and regular camping trips Louis slowly started to cope with what had happened the day his sisters were born and started to understand that people weren't a threat to their safety.
Now after eleven years of bonding with them Louis was lucky enough to share a strong and deep bond with them. He was the one who taught them to ride their bike or to fish and the one they always come to for advice or comfort.
The twins literally worshipped him and were devastated by the thought of seeing him leave to go to college possibly thousand of miles from them.
Unfortunately as the oldest child Louis felt this overwhelming responsibility to set a good example and not to disappoint his mothers and ruin the hope they had put in him.
It was around nine PM that night when Jane finally got home after an excruciating day at work eager to spend the evening with her little family.
"You're finally home! How was your lunch with the mayor?" Seeing her wife stepping inside their house Maura's breath was once again taken away by her presence and her natural beauty. After almost sixteen years of marriage and twenty years of knowing her Jane still had this ability to make her shiver just by a simple touch or drop her jaw every time she saw her naked.
"It was long and boring but the food was good. How about you? How was your day in court?" Jane asked as she took her jacket, shoes off and tossed her keys on the kitchen counter.
"It was an easy case but I almost arrived late because of you so thank you very much dear." Maura smiled snaking her arms around Jane's neck.
"It's not my fault if the girls and Louis were occupying both bathrooms and I had to use ours." Looking down at her wife's cleavage was still amazed by how great Maura still looked despite being in her early fifties and after breast feeding their twins and Louis.
"No it's not but I told you to wait for a few minutes until I finished showering because I knew what was going to happen if you joined me."
"Oh come on don't tell me you didn't like it. If I remembered correctly I made you come not once but twice." Jane replied pushing Maura against the kitchen counter as she slowly slipped her hand below her shirt reaching directly for her right breast.
"What can I tell you? Sixteen years of marriage and you still have that effect on me…Oh Jane, not right now and certainly not in the middle of the kitchen." Maura moaned feeling Jane's fingers ticking her right nipple and her mouth attacking her neck.
"You're right, let me carry you to our bedroom. I wouldn't want one of the kids to catch us in the act again." Jane replied remembering the last time the three of them caught them together. It was a little over a year ago on Maura's birthday. Jane had taken the day off and had decided to wish her wife a happy fiftieth birthday surprising up by gently pulling her pajamas down and attacking her clitoris. The surprise had the effect Jane had hoped for and Maura woke up with a smile on her face, pulling her up and begging her to fuck her as hard as she could and a few minutes later the two of them were making love as passionately as they did when they first starting dating.
Unfortunately what they didn't know was that Louis, Elizabeth and Victoria had woke up early to prepare her favorite breakfast and had planned to bring it to her in bed.
So a few minutes later just as Jane had her left hand almost entirely buried in her folds and Maura was almost on the verge of climaxing for the second time the three children suddenly barged into their bedroom catching them naked with Jane on top of Maura.
Thankfully Louis had caught them a couple times when he was younger and regularly heard them in the shower that shared a wall with his bedroom and was able to quickly react by covering their eyes and closing the door.
Luckily for the girls the family was really opened and after a quick conversation they understood that there was nothing wrong with what they had witnessed and learned to always knock before entering their bedroom.
"Yes, we wouldn't want to repeat that disaster but I before I let you make it up to me for making me late to court this morning I would like you to talk to Louis. He has been so distant lately and I don't seem to get through to him." Despite being eager to make love to her wife after spending the entire day remembering their morning shower Maura's main concern was her son who has been strangely withdrawn lately.
"He just got accepted by three of the most prestigious colleges in the country and I'm sure he doesn't know which one to choose because doesn't want to hurt us by not choosing to stay in Boston." Over the past year Jane was able to feel Louis' reluctance to leave Boston to study out of state and knew that as devoted as he was the idea of " abandoning " his family must be tearing him apart.
"I won't lie and pretend I wouldn't be heart broken if he chose to study out of state and that I wouldn't be proud if he decided to study at my old college but he should know that we will both support him what ever he decides." Just like Jane Maura always knew that Louis' decision would be hard for him to make, that because he was so close to Jane and her and the twins he would probably hesitate to leave them.
"Well let me talk to him to see if I can use my skills on him while you my dear are going to look in that closest of yours and choose something sexy for me to tear off later tonight." Jane teased slapping Maura's ass before quickly walking towards her son's room.
"We'll see about that." Maura replied shaking her head as she tried to put herself together and her bra back in place.
"A penny for your thoughts." Jane said her head half way through her son's door that was slightly opened.
"Hey ma. How was your lunch with the mayor? Did your morning shower with mom relax you enough to keep you from lashing out at him?" Sitting on his bed, his laptop on his lap Louis was trying to figure out what to do with his life and knew his mother well enough to know that she came to bring her support and offer his some advice.
"You do realize that mothers never forget anything and that all those snarky remarks will one day back fire at you, probably when you decide to bring a girl home right?" Joking as she stepped into the bedroom Jane was far form being embarrassed but was eager to see him move out so she could have loud sex with her wife without fearing that he might hear them.
"I wasn't complaining. I actually think it's great that you and mom are still so in love and attracted to each other after all those years. I hope that someday I will find a girl that makes me feel the way mom makes you feel."
"Oh so is this what's been going on? Are you…in love?" Jane asked biting her lower lip as she sat on the edge of the bed knowing that she was probably not the best person to give him advice on his love life.
"No, I was just thinking about next year."
"Oh okay. Well you have nothing to worry about. You have been accepted to BCU, Colombia and Stanford with a scholar ship so you literally have the luxury of choosing where you want to study."
"But mom wants me to study at BCU right?"
"That's where she studied not to mention that you wouldn't have to leave Boston but this is your decision and no matter what you chose to do we will support you." The confusion on her son's face confirmed Jane's suspicions : the idea studying out of state and leaving their family behind was troubling him.
"I know but I want you to be proud of me and to set a good example for the twins."
"Oh Louis, how can you doubt for a second how proud we are? You're the smartest child we could have dreamed about and you're kind, caring not to mention you have a great sense of humor and your sisters worship you. You know I think you literally spent your entire young life taking care of them and trying to make your mother and I happy so how about you just take that decision according to what you truly want?"
"It's not that easy Ma. I know mom expects me to become a Doctor or a lawyer or something fancy like that." All his life Louis had been pushed by Maura and Constance to study hard telling him how important having a solid education was to have a successful professional life and because they both graduated with honors from prestigious colleges he felt that it was his duty to do the same.
"I have known your mother for almost twenty years now and I have no doubt she would be extremely proud of you if you decided to become a cop, a baker or a florist. What we want more than anything is for you to do something you love and you're passionate about because there is nothing worse than going to work every day and hating every minute of it." Truth be told Jane knew that Maura would be disappointed if Louis decided to pass the opportunity to receive a world class college education but trusted his son to make the best decision. He knew that he probably spent months considering his options and that his decision wouldn't be rushed.
"Okay. So I have been considering it for a while now and I decided that I wanted to become a writer and I already wrote my first novel." Louis said nervously clenching his finger on his pants.
"Oh…. I didn't know you were into writing. I always thought if you were to become an artist you would become a painter or a sculptor like your grand mother." Feeling that Louis had been keeping this desire hidden inside for quite some time and that he was probably passionate about it Jane decided to treat him like an adult and to take him seriously.
"I do enjoy painting but not as much as writing. You know it took me a year to write this novel because I wanted to be as accurate and thorough as possible so I did a lot of research." Louis replied determined to prove that this was not just a fling, that he was very serious about this project.
"I have no doubt that you worked very hard on this project Louis. If anything you have always been passionate like me and very thorough like your mother and I would be honored if you let me read your novel." Impressed by Louis' determination and the mature way he handled his project Jane was eager to read his novel and had a feeling that she was not going to be disappointed.
"Yes. I took the liberty of printing a copy for you and for mom too. Here." Reaching out to his night table Louis was excited to see that his mother wasn't trying to dissuade him from pursuing his passion and that she genuinely seemed interested in reading it.
"Alright. Well I'm going to talk to your mom. She's probably gonna read in right away but you know that I'm a much slower reader so just give me a little time Okay?" Jane replied looking down at the precious manuscripts.
"Thanks mom you're the best." Jumping in his mother's arm Louis was relieved and knew that if Jane supported him in his project Maura would too.
"Don't thank me, I'm proud of you. What you did requires a lot of commitment and efforts and I'm sure your mother and I will like it."
"I hope so."
Walking towards her bedroom Jane was trying to find the best way to explain to her wife that Louis was not only not going to be a world class surgeon but that he might not go to college at all and was hoping Maura would at least read his manuscript before trying to dissuade him.
"So, did you find what's wrong with him?" Sitting on their bed wearing nothing but a black bra with matching panties Maura was eager to find out if Jane had managed to talk some sense into their son.
"Yes, but I want you to keep an open mind." Sitting on the edge of the bed, the manuscripts in her hands Jane took a minute to wander her eyes on her wife's body who hadn't change a bit since the first day they met.
"Please don't tell me he got a girl pregnant."
"No. He's not that stupid don't worry. Well our son has decided want he wants to do with his life but I think it doesn't involve going to college."
"Oh, well did you try to dissuade him and to tell him that gaining a college education was important?" Hearing those words Maura's heart shattered into pieces. She had spent the past sixteen years encouraging Louis to excel in school and wasn't about to just accept his decision that easily. For her going to college was important and she couldn't imagine what project he could have that would be more important and would not require a college education.
"No I didn't. I told him that I would support him and that you would too."
"Jane! How can you do that? He needs to go to college otherwise he might end up being…" Maura replied slightly rising her voice.
"A cop?" Unlike Maura Jane didn't go to college and was a self made woman and was extremely proud of her carrer and of her professional achievement and knew that going to college wasn't the only way to succeed.
"That's not what I meant. You're the best cop I have ever worked with. You were born to do that and I'm glad you never went to BCU because we might have never met. I'm sorry." Lowering her voice Maura knew that Jane despite being proud of being a cop still had regrets from time to time and that being a snob about Louis' decision wouldn't help.
"Don't worry about it. I know you're not a snob and I think he found something he's truly passionate about and we need to support him."
"You're right. He spent his entire life doing everything he thought we expected of him so now it's time for us to support him. Would you mind telling me what he told you?"
"He wants to be a writer and already wrote a novel. Here's the manuscript." Jane replied handing the precious manuscript to Maura hoping that he was talented enough to turn his passion into a job.
"He's only sixteen." Quickly taking a look at the manuscript Maura realized that it was almost 400 pages long and how much work it must have taken to achieve it.
"Yes. He told me that he spent an entire year working on it because he wanted it to be accurate so he did a lot of research."
"Alright. I suppose we could read it and take it from there."
"Exactly. Just let me take a quick shower and check on the girls and after that I'm going to make it up to you for this morning." Jane replied leaning over to blow a tender kiss on her wife's gorgeous lips.
"I don't think so Jane. He knows I'm a fast reader and probably expects me to start reading it tonight. Feel free to take a long bath because I'm going to start reading our son's novel." Maura replied reaching out for her robe.
"Grrrr, okay." Jane groaned rolling her eyes. Despite being incredibly horny she was happy that Maura was so enthusiastic about Louis' project.
That night Maura didn't sleep at all but instead started to read Louis' novel and found herself unable to put it down until she finally finished it.
"What time is it?" Slowly opening her eyes the next morning Jane was surprised to find Maura sitting up in bed the same way she was when she fell asleep the previous night. Exhausted after her lunch and day with the mayor Jane had no trouble to fall asleep despite the light Maura had kept on while reading.
"It's almost 8 am." Sitting in bed with Louis' manuscript on he lap Maura had just finished reading it and was writing down some final comments.
"Did you stay awake all night?" Jane replied flipping on her eyes unwilling to get out of bed that early on a saturday morning.
"Yes I did. Once I started reading his novel I couldn't put it down." Maura replied taking her glasses off before joining Jane under the covers.
"Is it that good?"
"It's better than good Jane. It's absolutely brilliant."
"Really? Damn I promised him to read it but I was too tired last night. What is it about?" Seeing Maura's enthusiasm Jane was relieved and knew that her wife's support was now earned and that because she had such exquisite taste in literature and was such a hard reader to satisfy had no doubt that Louis' novel was indeed brilliant
"It's about us."
"What do you mean?"
"It's about a female Medical Examiner who was raised in a wealthy family and who's a bit socially awkward who is teamed up with a female blue collar Detective who was raised in a complete different social background and who seems to have an opposite personality." Pitching their son's novel to Jane Maura still had trouble believing that he found their lives inspiring enough to base an entire novel on them.
"Yes. You really need to read it Jane. He really managed to capture the essence of our relationship and how it slowly grew from a formal and professional relationship into a solid friendship but what I think is the most incredible is the way he wrote the criminal plot. It's absolutely brilliantly executed and the forensic and investigation procedure are describe with an almost perfect accuracy.."
"Now I see why he has been asking me that many questions and why he has been spending so much time with you at the morgue." Nodding Jane started to think about all those times Louis would visit them at the station and ask questions about their investigations and forensics procedure. Until now she thought that he was considering joining the force but she now realized he had another reason for being so curious and was extremely proud of him.
"Yes. I thought he was considering becoming an ME or a police officer but apparently he was just doing research. There are a few mistakes I would say it's 95 % accurate."
"I'm impressed…" Lacking words to describe how she felt Jane's heart was quickly feeling up with an immense feeling of pride.
"So was I and truth be told I was unable to find out who the murderer was…I think he's very talented Jane." After spending ten straight hours reading and commenting her son's piece of art Maura was impressed by the maturity Louis had put in his writing and found herself extremely proud to have raised such a committed, smart and talented young man.
"Then will you support him if he decides to become a writer without going to college?"
"I wasn't sure before reading it, but you can feel the passion in his writing and how much work he put in it. I think he really found what he was meant to do. But I'm still going to suggest that he takes writing classes. If he's truly committed to his writing he won't object and should be eager to improve himself."
"I agree. He's young and even if he's naturally talented I'm sure he still has a lot he could learn. How about you go tell him that? I'm sure he's already up." Jane replied eager to read her son's novel as well.
"Yes. He woke up about an hour ago and I think he helped the twins getting ready to go spend the week end with your mother and then drove them to her place." Maura replied knowing that the twins wouldn't be here this week end giving them the opportunity to talk about this novel.
"They're eleven. I think he should stop hovering them like that because soon he's going to leave the house and they're gonna find themselves lost without him."
"I know but I you know how much he enjoys taking care of them and I know that they cherish the time they spend together without us interfering or putting our noses in their conversation. The girls obviously have a lot of concerns that need to be adressed and I think it's important for them to spend time with Louis so they can talk about it. Actually I know they can not wait for their camping trip next week."
"Yes. They already made a list of everything they're going to need which reminds me of the first trip Louis and I took together."
"I remember that trip too. We had just found out that I was pregnant and Louis had many things he wanted to talk to you about and I think that allowing them to spend a few days away from us will be beneficiary and will hopefully smoothen the transition." This trip that Louis and the twins had planned was the first they were going to take without Jane or Frankie and despite being a little nervous Maura knew that she could trust Louis with their safety.
"I agree. You know if he decides to go through with this project and to stay in Boston I think we should encourage him to move out. He's a young man now and I'm sure he's going to need his privacy and I think it's time for the twins to learn to be more independent."
"I couldn't agree more. I think that after leaving all those years with four women he deserves his own place. You know our current tenants decided to move out at the end of their lease so we could give him our old house. That way he wouldn't be far but would still be independent."
"I think that's an excellent idea but remember that if he decides to take writing classes he might have to leave Boston and If the best classes are out of town we should support him."
"We will. Now please do me a favor and prepare us some breakfast." Maura smiled pinching Jane's face.
Walking towards Louis' bedroom Maura was split between being extremely proud and being extremely sad. She had spent the past sixteen year developing the most incredible bond with her son, trying to give him the tools to become a healthy human being and despite being extremely proud of the young men he had become she couldn't help but being heart broken to see him leaving the nest.
"Hey mom, how did you sleep?" Seeing his mother stepping into his bedroom holding his manuscript Louis' heart suddenly stopped. He knew that she was a fast reader and that she probably had read it already.
"I didn't actually." Maura replied closing the door behind her.
"I see you're holding my novel so I suppose you read it." Louis asked swallowing hard.
"Yes, I did."
"Did you like it?"
"No I didn't like it. I loved it." Maura replied as she sat on the edge of Louis' bed.
"You did?" Knowing how much Maura enjoyed crime and mystery novels and how hard and critical she, as a professional could be Louis' heart suddenly filled up with pride and hope.
"Yes and to be honest with you I wasn't able to put it down until I finished it. Why didn't you tell me you were working on such a project?"
"Because I knew you would want to read it as I wrote it and I was afraid of not being able to deal with the pressure. I needed to take my time to make sure it was good and accurate. Are you mad at me?" Overwhelmed by the high expectation his parents and grand parents had put on him Louis always felt compelled to excel at what ever he did and could not imagine going through that kind of project without being completely thorough.
"Of course not. You're right I would have probably pressured you to read it. I have to admit that it's incredibly well research and now I understand why you spent so much time with me at the morgue asking me questions."
"Yes. I needed to observe you and Ma and understand what forensic and investigation techniques you use to solve your cases. Was I accurate?" Over the past year Louis had visited his mothers at the station asking them all sorts of questions, taking notes to make sure that every single detail in his novel was realistic and accurate.
"Yes. I think you were perfectly accurate describing the investigation techniques used by the Boston police department."
"What about the forensic procedures?"
"You made a few mistake but I would say that you were 95% accurate and I would be happy to help you correct the few mistakes you have made."
"Thanks mom, I would like that very much." Jumping in his mother's arms Louis was relieved. After spending an entire year working his butt off on this project not only his novel was finished but his mother who was the person he admired the most on the planet loved it. Most importantly Louis was proud that despite being only sixteen he managed to impress his mother who had been an ME for decades.
"You're welcome. You know I really enjoyed the mystery and scientific part of your novel and I think it was brilliantly written but what I love the most is that you based your characters on your mother and I. I didn't know we were so inspiring. "
"You are. The two of you are my role models. Not only you have great moral values and a strong work ethic but you're the best at what you do so when I decided to write a crime novel basing my characters felt like the most natural thing to do. Not to mention that you told me so many stories about how you met and how your relationship grew from a working to a more personal relationship that I thought it would bring something more original to what crime novel usually are you know." Over the past sixteen years Louis had observed and learned a lot from his mother and could only wish to become such a respected and talented professional as they were but most importantly he was hoping he could become a human being that they could be proud of and maybe someday meet someone who he would share a relationship that would be a strong as theirs.
"I must admit that you really captured the essence of our relationship and of our individual personalities. I'm so proud of you ." Literally bursting into tears Maura was unable to understand how Louis could admire her so much. She always thought that her social awkwardness and rather colorful personality made her everything but a good role model and she was extremely proud to see how much Louis admired her and that hers and Jane's lives were worth being immortalized on paper.
"Oh mom, don't cry please…" Louis replied passing his fingers through her hair.
"I just…It's just that I remember when your mother and I had her first ultrasound, you were so little and your heart was beating so fast. Then I remember holding you when you were born and cutting the umbilical cord. I spent the past sixteen years trying to teach you the values I thought were the most important so you could grow up to be a kind, honest, hard working adult and you surpassed all my expectations."
" That's because I was raised by the best two mothers I could have dreamed of mom. Thank you for raising me and for being so patient with me. I'm know I'm no angel."
"Let's just say you inherited your mother's stubbornness and strong personality but you also inherited her kindness and courage and I'm really proud of being your mother." Holding her son in her arms Maura could see what a terrific young man Louis had grown to be and was amused to see that he was a perfect mix between her and Jane.
"Yes but Ma always says that I inherited your intelligence, imagination and taste for fashion, history and science. You know when I think about it I think she was a little jealous when I was a little because you and I were so close."
"I think that when you were very young she blamed herself for working so much and because I was a stay home mom at the time you and I developed a solid bond. I think it was hard for her to miss so much of your life but she always knew how much you loved her and that you considered her to be even a greater hero than superman or spiderman."
"You both are my heroes mom and I hope that I will make you and the twins proud both personally and personally."
"I'm sure you will son."
A couple of months later Louis enrolled a very prestigious writing program at BCU and while living in their old out only a few blocks from his family. After studying hard for two years to improve his writing Louis graduated with honors and after working with Maura on his novel managed to get it published at the age of 18. A few months later his novel called " The Jane and Maura Isles series" became a best seller. A few years later at the age of 26 Louis had written a total of four best sellers and was even approached by a network to adapt his novels into a tv show. After considering it Louis agreed to sign over the rights of his novels to the network with the condition of being an executive producer so he could have a real influence on how the show was written and how her characters were developed. This show was about his mothers after all and he wanted the show to be accurate and respectful and a true tribute to the two women who raised him.
The twins also grew up to be two exceptional young ladies. Elizabeth enrolled in the academy at the age of 18 and after spending 5 years on the street with patrol earned her Detective shield and was transferred to homicide where her Uncle Sergeant Frankie Rizzoli taught her everything he knew.
Victoria on the other hand decided to go to law school in New-York and after passing the bar in both New York state and in Massachusetts became a public defender in Boston working for the Isles foundation.
Jane and Maura decided to retire at the age of 60 after spending their entire lives giving justice to the people of Boston. After 25 years of marriage their love was still has strong as it was when they first started dating. Proud parents of three children who grew up to be smart, devoted, hard working human beings Jane and Maura spent their retirement feeling that their lives had been better than they could have wished for. Looking back at all the challenges they had to overcome over the past three decades Jane and Maura were extremely proud of what they had accomplished both as law enforcement professional but also as parents and role models for their children.
On Jane's sixtieth' birthday Maura purchased an old house that was literally falling apart so Jane could realise her old dream and restore it with Louis and Frankie.
Maura never heard from Doyle after Jane gave him permission to take care of Dean and never met Hope, not even after her parents died weeks apart at the age of 85. It had taken her years to cope with her adoption and to realise that DNA didn't matter and that she was an Isles and her parents loved her and while Jane spent her retirement rebuilding old houses and reselling them Maura took over the family foundation and continued to walk into her parents footsteps and tried her best to live up to her name and to her parents philanthropic endeavours. Soon she was joined by Victoria who helped her open a legal department that helped the less fortunate to get the best counsel possible. Jane and Elizabeth upon Constance and Charless' deaths also joined the foundation as volunteers and and used their years of experience on the field as police officers to give counsel to victims of trauma. Louis on the other hand was also happy to contribute in his own way by not only making generous contribution but also by making sure that his characters were representative of what being in law enforcement truly meant in his books and on the show.
Yes despite of evolving in different professional circles and having different personalities the Isles family was as united as a family could be and were always there to support and help each other knowing that the key to any healthy personal relationship was unconditional support.
Alright guys, this is it, after 6 months, 61 chapters and over 200K words this story comes to an end. It was such a great journey and I honestly thought that I would end it after Louis was born but I received so many encouragements and had so many ideas that it turned into my longest and favourite and most popular story!
I wanted to thank you for the support and encouragement, thanks to you I realised that it doesn't matter if a few people insult or hate me and think I'm nuts. The most important thing is that I truly enjoy writing.
At the end of the day I know that you, my faithful readers enjoyed this story and it's all that matters.
I hope you enjoyed the decisions that I made in that last chapter, especially making Maura go back to work which to me seemed perfectly natural and making Louis become a writer... I thought that writing a novel about his mothers would be a nice homage and would be completely in character and that seeing his work turned into a tv show would be funny.
I also wanted to acknowledge the fact that Louis had trouble coping with what happened with Dean.
I'm sorry I didn't talk about Frost/Korsak/Frankie and Angela in this chapter but it's already so long and I really wanted to focus on the Isles family and give you a glimpse of what kind of adults their kids grew up to be.
Now I'm focusing on "dreams." Check it out, it's pretty good!
PS : I know some of you are gonna ask for a sequel. Up until now I never had enough ideas for that but considering that I gave you a glimpse of their future maybe I have enough material for a sequel. It could start with Maura's parents death and how the family is gonna cope and how they're all gonna contribute to the Isles foundation as Maura has to take over for parents and run it… Maura and Jane would be 60, Louis 25 and the twins 20...I'll think about it but I think it has potential!
