A/N: I know, I'm a horrible person for not updating in months. But I'm back! Or at least I'm back with the second and final chapter of Guardian Angel! I hope you like it.
Parker held tightly to the pole on the carousel as it went around. He smiled and waved at Booth. "Hi Daddy!" Booth smiled and waved back.
Once the ride came to a stop Parker jumped down from the horse and ran to his dad. Booth swung Parker up into his arms and carried him to a small shaded area. "How have you been, Buddy?"
Parker shrugged. "Okay. I'm with Bones a lot. And sometimes I'm with Uncle Jack and Aunt Angela and Cam and Zach. They're a lot of fun."
"I'm glad they keep you happy." Booth smiled down at his son.
"Mommy keeps me
happy too. She plays with me a lot now."
"That's good, Bub."
Parker began to play with a blade of grass. "Bones is still very sad, though."
"Bones is sad?"
"Yeah, but whenever I'm with her she pretends to be happy."
"How do you know she's pretending?" Booth asked.
"She always looks so sad. And last night when I stayed over I heard her crying."
"She was crying?"
Parker nodded. "Uh huh. I had a bad dream and when I went to her room I heard her crying. Bones kept saying everybody leaves her. Daddy, why does she think that?" Parker looked up to Booth.
"When Bones was younger, she was left all alone for a long time."
"I don't want her to think that," Parker said.
"I don't want her to think that either."
"Daddy, did you see me and Bones at the park last week?" Parker asked, quickly changing the subject.
Booth smiled. "Of course I saw you! You and Bones had a tickle fight."
Parker giggled. "She smiled lots that day."
"Yeah, buddy, she did."
"Bones is pretty when she smiles." Parker looked to Booth. "Don't you think?"
Booth smiled. "Yeah, she is very beautiful."
"Daddy, do you always watch over me?"
"Of course. I always watch over the people I love."
"Do you watch over Mommy?"
"And the squints?"
"Parker…" Booth gave his son a look.
"Wait, just one more person." Parker waited until his father nodded. "Bones?"
Booth nodded. "Yeah, buddy, I watch over Bones."
"You love Bones? Like Uncle Jack loves Angela?" Parker asked.
"Yes, I love Bones."
Parker smiled. "Good." He was quiet for a moment. "I love Bones too. She's like mommy. Daddy, you need to keep watching over our Bones. She needs to know you're still with her."
"I'll make sure she knows I'm still with her."
"Well, what are you waiting for? Go to Bones!" Booth smiled and disappeared. "Finally!" Parker giggled. "I hope daddy tells her." Parker began to feel drowsy. "Mommy…"
Parker chose that moment to wake up. "Mommy? Where's my Bones?"
"We're getting ready to leave her apartment. You want to say goodbye?"
Parker nodded. He turned to face Bones and held out his arms. Brennan took him without hesitation. Parker hugged her tightly "I love you Bones." He said softly before pulling back slightly. "Don't be sad anymore. Daddy's watching you and he doesn't like it when you're sad. He says you need to smile 'cause you're beautiful when you smile." Parker gave her the 'charm' smile.
Brennan pulled him to her once more. "I love you too, Parker." She handed him back to his mother and watched as they walked down the hallway.
"Tempe!" Parker's voice echoed through the hallway. "Daddy says he loves you too!"
So that's the end of the story. Hope you liked it!
