Chapter 45

The following weeks went by quickly even though there was only one murder case for them to solve. They spent most of their time unpacking, decorating, and when Parker wasn't around, which wasn't very often, christening the entire house. It was a very pleasing time for both of them.

Brennan, however, was finding herself wanting more. She had a feeling that Booth was holding back from her in their lovemaking. Oh, he was very generous and always pleased her so much more than any of her other lovers had. However, she wasn't as close to him as she would like to be. She had a feeling that there could be more.

It took her awhile but she did finally figure it out. It happened while she was at work. She was walking past an archives when she overheard two women talking about the night the one had conceived. Brennan hadn't meant to eavesdrop, she really hadn't. But she found herself curious and her curiosity always got the better of her.

The woman who was now pregnant was raving about how amazing it was to feel her husband's manhood fully inside of her and to let him cum without protection and without worrying about spilling his seed after not wanting to get pregnant for so long.

That was enough for Brennan to hear. That was what she had been missing and yearning for, though she hadn't known it until just that moment. She wanted Booth—completely. And she wanted his child. She wanted to feel life inside of her that was half his and half hers.

Smiling, she knew she would convince him to get her pregnant. She knew it was only a matter of time. He had even hinted-no, there was no hinting at it at all. He had flat out said that he would like Parker to be an older brother sooner rather than later. Now, all she had to do was let him know that she was ready.

At dinner that night, Booth knew that something was on her mind. That she had been thinking about something very seriously and now had made a decision on how this something should be treated. From experience, he knew that he would not be able to argue with her and more than likely, he would not want to. The only question was, what did she want?

Brennan knew that Booth was watching her and he knew that something was different. Something was on her mind. She didn't know why she was nervous. This was no big deal. This was something millions of women talked about every day. But she wasn't millions of women. Until recently, the thought of a child just wasn't even a small speck in her mind.

Booth smiled at her and though the butterflies were still there, Brennan knew that everything would be ok. This was Booth. He wanted this just as much as she did—if not more. "I've been thinking," she started.

"I noticed." He took a drink of his beer. "Care to tell me what about?"

"I want a baby." He choked then stared at her. "And not just any baby. Yours."

"Wow. Bones. Wow. You're serious, aren't you?"

"Do you think I would joke about something like this?"

"No, of course not, I'm sorry." He took a sip and then got up and pulled her out of his seat. "You just caught me off guard is all."

She smiled. "I like it when I do that. It doesn't happen too often."

"No, it doesn't." He brought her arms around his neck. "So when do you want to start?"

"I was thinking tonight." She pressed a light kiss to his lips. "Definitely tonight."

He growled. "I am more than ok with that." He picked her up to her protest, and carried her to their room.

"So, Seeley," she ran a hand on his face. "Do you think you are up to the challenge of making me pregnant tonight?"

"More than up to it."

She giggled as he pressed into her. "I can tell." Her leg came over his back. "Prove it."

"Oh, I will."
