Hey everybody in a great mood I aced my bones test I had in science class yesterday, one step closer to my future career now if I can only pass my math test tomorrow all will be well. So here is my next chapter I'm finished so please review and let me know what you all think, PLEASE!
Patience walked through the front door of her house and was greeted by her husband.
"Hey honey how was your day?" he asked hugging her.
"Great Jimmy can you come with me tomorrow?" she answered staring at the letter that had been written to Temperance.
"Sure, where to?"
"The Jeffersonian museum, I have a few questions to ask a certain doctor friend of mine." She answered back and made her way into the kitchen to prepare lunch.
the next day
"Bones I don't see why this can't wait until tomorrow." Booth called following Tempe into the lab and to her office, Parker walked quickly behind him.
"Because if I don't have this one file everything will go wrong." She called back.
"Hello Parker!" Angela called from the other side of the room to the young child; Parker ran over to Angela and embraced her. "It's been a while how have you been?"
"great." She answered putting him down and made her way to Booth, who was now standing in front of Tempe's office door. "So what are you guys up to today?"
"We were going to take Parker here for a ride, wherever he wanted to go, but Bones had to make a quick stop for some files." Booth answered smiling.
"I need these files. Booth it's important." Tempe said her head inside one of her many drawers.
"Well sweetie I'm glad you stopped by, that Dr. Moore is here and asking for you." Angela said, then smiled noticing Booth was now in her office and holding the files in his hands, while Tempe still looked.
"Really? Can you send her in please? I can't find the files." She asked then moved on to another drawer, never once looking to Booth.
"Sure," Angela said as she turned to leave, then before out of ear shot yelled, "Booth has the files!"
Tempe looked to Booth then grabbed the papers out of his hand as he laughed and gained a small laugh from Parker.
"Hi, Dr. Brennan," Patience said as she entered the office with her husband behind her. "I came to give you the files back I looked them over and well I must say that according to them we are in fact twins." She said offering the folder to her.
"Yes, look I'm sorry you had to find out this way, but under certain circumstances, it was the best I could offer them to you." Tempe said placing the folder on her desk.
"Understandable, I only wish my mother and father would have told me the truth before hand instead of me calling them up last night for an explanation, but however things don't always go as planned."
"No, I'm afraid not."
"Well I thank you doctor perhaps within time we will see each other again." Patience said and walked out of the office.
"Maybe we will." Tempe muttered and went back to the files at hand.
"I don't believe you Temperance!" Booth yelled once she, Parker and he were the only ones left in the room.
"What?" she asked innocently.
"She's your sister, your twin for god's sake and you've only been reunited with her and the only thing you do is push her away, when your niece or nephew rests inside her?"
"Booth, by blood we're family, yes, but other than that she's a stranger. What do you want me to do?"
"I want you to get to know her, make her apart of your family again. Become the sisters you were born as." Booth said never once loosing eye contact with her.
4 month's later
Four and a half moth's had passed since the case of Nicole Pulaski had been brought to the Jeffersonian museum and now Marcus Pulaski, recently freed from prison stood next to his three children as the body of the young six year old girl was placed in a grave.
It was autumn and the different colored leaves fell from the trees, as Tempe, Booth and Parker stood opposite Marcus and his remaining family. Patience had attended and stood at the foot of the grave looking down crying, she held her bulging stomach and swore on her life she would never allow such a thing to happen to her own child, her husband held her close, trying to calm her down.
"It's hard, you know, every time you never get used to it." Patience told Temperance as she walked to her side to offer her comfort.
Ever since Booth had given Tempe his talk on how they should get to know one another they had, spending time here and there, they were closer then before and were working on a closer relationship as sisters, though Patience still kept her hair black and used her contacts.
"I try to distant myself from it all, but with Parker becoming like a kid of my own I understand how bad it must be to be torn away from the one thing that you can say is yours, though Parker isn't mine I do have a better understanding of it." Tempe said looking over to Booth who held Parker close. Due to Rebecca's new job offering, she wasn't allowed much time with her son, leaving Tempe and Booth with the most time in his life.
"He needs a family Temperance, a full one, not the broken one he has." Patience offered smiling. "Even if he has to gain a step-mom to get it."
"I'm not sure if a step-mom would be great for him, he'd have to like her."
"You up for a challenge?"
"You mean me be his step-mom? If he wants, it's Booth and Parker's call, not mine, but I will always be there for him." She said.
Once the service ended Tempe walked with her sister and brother-in-law to a park across the street, one Booth and Parker were already at.
"That's good, you going to have kids of your own?"
"Me? No, I don't want them. Plus I've got Booth and Parker to worry about, that's like two alone. I don't need one of my own." She said laughing with Patience and Jimmy at her joke.
"Well, my dear sister, this is where we part. I've got some work to catch up on tomorrow before I take my paternity leave." Patience said stopping at the top of a hill and embraced her sister.
"Alright, keep in touch, and lunch is still on for next weekend right?" Tempe asked.
"Yes, I'll see you next week, bye."
"bye." They said, and Tempe walked down the hill towards Booth and Parker.
"Come on babe let's get you home." Jimmy said heading towards the car.
"Wait Jim, watch." She said never moving and looking down to Tempe and Booth.
Parker played on the swing and by a bench, Booth sat talking to Tempe. They sat for a moment, in deep conversation, until Booth got off of the bench and got on one knee in front of her. A small box was pulled out and Tempe's face could be seen lighting up with every second. She nodded her head vigorously and embraced him, kissed him then looked to the ring that lay on her finger.
"You knew he was going to do that, didn't you?" Jimmy asked watching the scene take place.
"Of course, why else would I ask her the questions I did?" She answered back smiling, then turned and walked with her husband to the car.
Well any good? I'm not sure I debated it for a while, and couldn't come up with anything better; my studies were taking up way too much time. I've got finals in two weeks, then summer school, I need something to keep me busy, plus I'll get more credits for my college resume, the more the better I was told. So tell me what you all think, please I love hearing from you guys. Thanks for all the reviews I've received throughout my whole story you guys kept me going, thanks.
