Well this is it for this story, Thanks for sticking with it. This is named after Baby, I love You by Aretha Franklin.


Epilogue- Baby, I Love You.

"I love you, ain't no doubt about it"

Booth is fast asleep, his breathing steady, a smile on his face as he pulls Brennan closer, if that was even possible. Brennan however was not asleep, she is just lying there, watching him sleep; he looks so peaceful she muses, like he doesn't feel like he has the weight of the world on his shoulders. He stirs, which startles her slightly. His breathing changes and his eyes open slowly. "Can't sleep?" he asks eyes half open. He moves his hand up her bare back slowly and his face saddens when he reaches the scar on her back from the bullet graze. Brennan notices the look on his face, a mix of sadness and guilt.

"I'm ok with that being there Booth, because if it wasn't there, you wouldn't be here either." Booth's face relaxes a little as he kisses her forehead.

"I love you." Booth states, as if it was the easiest thing in the world to say.

"I know." Brennan replies as she snuggles closer to Booth's chest. He smiles and begins to drift back to sleep. Brennan tilts her head to watch him again, his breathing now becoming slow and even.

"I love you." She whispers, barely audible.

"I know." He smiles, his eyes still closed.
