I know, I promised you guys a happier ending, but every time I tried, it turned out horribly. Forgive me.
So, here's a less depressing (but still sad) ending for you all to enjoy.
A knock on the door interrupted Temperance's sobbing and Angela walked into her office, hands behind.
"Sweetie?" she asked tentatively. Brennan straightened up in her seat and tried to put on a brave face, teartracks betraying the image she attempted to portray.
"Yes, Angela?" she replied flatly.
"Well, I would ask how you're doing, but I think that's kind of obvious," she responded. "Anyways, Booth told me that if anything were ever to happen to him, I had to give you this," she explained, pulling a crinkled envelope from behind her back.
"What's that?" Brennan inquired, accepting the letter eagerly. Ever since his passing, she had been thirsty for anything formerly in his possession.
"A letter to you. Probably telling you all he's ever wanted to," Angela said, offering her hand to her grieving friend. Brennan took it and started to read aloud, in a melancholy tone of voice.
I know I told you that I'd always be there for you, and I'm so sorry for leaving you so early. I just need you to do some things. For me?
Brennan could feel him flash his famous charm smile at her, teeth gleaming white.
Please take care of Parker for me. He really loves spending time with you and he needs someone else in his life. Please don't give up on the human race and relationships. Don't hide yourself from the world or put up any walls. I had too much trouble getting them down for you to cut yourself off again. You have good friends to lean on. And you have family. No matter how screwed up they may be, they still love you. And that's something else I want you to do. I want you realize that I love you. I love you more than anything in this world and there is nobody who can change that. You may not share my feelings, but that is something that you have to know.
I WILL ALWAYS BE WITH YOU. I know, I know. You don't believe in heaven, but like you said, I do. And that's enough for me, and hopefully, enough for you.
Forever with love,
She clutched the letter to her chest and whispered softly, "I love you, too."
Review please, if you don't hate me by now...
