It was another four hours before the doctor came out of surgery. Will and Emily jumped out of their seats and walked towards the doctor.
"Agent Jareau lost a lot of blood but she's been stabilized."
Will let out his breath and turned to hug Emily. "Thank you, Doctor. When can I see her?"
"She'll be out soon and then you can see her."
Will was so relieved that tears arose his eyes. He was just glad he had not lost JJ yet. The nurses moved her to her room and Will sat next to her for the next twenty-four hours.
The doctor said that it would be a few days before JJ could fully regain conscious. Her body needed to recover from the trauma she experienced. Will stayed by her side with the exception of going home to check on Henry. As far as the little boy knew, his mom got hurt and wouldn't come home for a little bit. Will held JJ's hand while praying that she would be wake up soon so he could see her beautiful eyes and glowing smile.
After the second day, Will was getting restless. He kept changing his position on the chair so he could get a quick nap. He squeezed JJ's hand and for a second, he felt her squeeze back. His eyes opened wide, wondering if he had just imagined that she did it. Then he noticed her eyes fluttering as if she was trying to wake up.
"JJ, it's me Will. Wake up. C'mon sweetheart."
Her eyelids started to slowly lift and then he saw her looking around at her surroundings.
"You're in the hospital. You got shot, remember?"
She nodded. She cleared her throat and opened her mouth.
"Henry?", she croaked out.
"He's fine. Penelope and Reid are watching him." Will kissed her hands and put his hand on her head. "You're alright."
JJ nodded and they stayed like that, staying in each other's eyes. In that moment, JJ knew that Will had forgiven her for everything and Will knew that he had his family back together again. Over the course of the next few days, JJ was discharged from the hospital with one month of medical leave. That meant that Will would be home with her and Henry, taking care of the both of them. This gave the couple time to regain their footing and talk about their relationship.
It was a few days before JJ had to go back to work when the Lamontagne family decided to spend the day at the beach. As the sun was setting, Will was packing up the car with the beach toys and the unwanted sand scattered all over the trunk. He headed back to where JJ and Henry were standing.
"Alright, are we ready?" JJ asked.
"Hold on. We still got one more thing," Will said with his hands on top of Henry's shoulders.
"What?" she said smiling.
"Jennifer Jareau, you and Henry are the two most important people in my life. And if anything in the past month has shown, it's that I do not want to lose you again. Henry?" Henry pulled out a ring out of his pocket and gave it to his dad. Will got down on one knee, "Will you marry me?"
JJ, with tears sliding down her face, "Yes!" She leaned in and kissed Will as passionately as she could.
"Yay!" Henry said clapping his hands. JJ released Will and picked up Henry, giving him kisses. They all then turned around to watch the sunset as Will leaned in to give her another kiss. JJ was glad that this was the beginning of the new chapter of their lives.
