Keeping Faith

Chapter 10- Saving Faith

"Put the gun down." Booth said in a calm steady voice even though he was dying inside. Faith started to cry, the tears falling down her face.

"No, put yours down." The woman replied. Booth looked between Faith and the woman. If he put his gun down then the woman would take Faith and probably kill her. But if he didn't then she would shoot her. He would loose Faith either way.

"No." He said to her. Her eyes narrowed.

"Well then, I guess we'll have to wait to see who cracks first."

… … … … … … … …

Hannah watched the exchange between her mother and Booth. She struggled against her bonds. They wouldn't budge. Then she remembered that there was a sharp spring sticking out of the bed. Moving carefully she moved over to it. Carefully rubbing the ropes against them they began to break. Her mom looked over. Hannah stopped. Her mom turned her attention back to Booth. Hannah continued. After many minutes she felt the ropes break. Yes she thought. She looked back at Booth and her mom. Neither had noticed. She carefully edged towards the side of the bed. Then she quietly lifted herself of the bed and onto the floor. She crawled across the room as her feet were still bound. She didn't breath incase they heard her.

Once out of the room she quickly untied her bonds on her legs and took the gag out of her mouth. She snuck carefully out of the room. The door to the apartment was still open, she came out. Now all she had to do was find someone who could help.

… … … … … … … …

Booth stared at the woman she was crazy. He didn't want to kill her in front of Faith. She looked behind Booth. Then her eyes grew wide. Booth didn't want to turn around incase she shot Faith while his back was turned. She seemed to mouthing the same words 'where's Hannah?'

Booth didn't know who Hannah was. I t could be someone who was helping this woman. If this was the case Booth didn't want them to come. He heard noises from the door, someone was coming in. He heard footsteps they came to a stop behind him. He still didn't move.

"Hannah, where've you been? How did you get out of your bonds?" The woman said to the person behind Booth. It was the girl who was called Hannah.

"Mom, you need top stop this. Dad's gone. It doesn't matter what you do, nothing is going to bring him back." Booth heard the girl behind him say.

"Darling I need revenge this man killed your father."

"Mom it doesn't matter. What do you think Dad's spirit will be happier if you do this?"

"Yes" The woman, answered her eyes gleamed. Booth heard more footsteps, which again stopped behind him.

"Put the gun down." Booth heard from behind him, the rest of the FBI had finally got there.

"No!" She screamed before shooting the gun.

… … … … … … … …

Booth held Faith near.

"It's ok." He whispered, "Everything is going to be fine." He placed his hands over her eyes. He didn't want her to see the blood. Hannah walked over to them.

"I'm sorry about your Mom." He said She shrugged and walked on, but Booth could tell she was upset. Why did she have to do that? The woman had turned the gun on herself. But all Booth cared about was Faith was back with him.
