~The Big Question~ Ch. 4

AN: Sorry it's taking me such a long time to post I have a lot of things to do these next couple of weeks especially my eight page history paper due really soon so I'm sorry in advance if some of my writing seems rushed or I don't post as often. So here's the next chapter and I will try to get my next story up soon. R&R, give advice you know the drill.

Love you all!


The next morning Booth and Brennan got to work very early. They both worked until about 8:30, when they decided to go to the diner for breakfast. They were just coming back when the squints were starting to arrive.

When they all got there, they started work immediately. About half way through the morning Brennan came out of her office and walked up to the platform when Angela stopped her and said:


"Oh, hey Ange, do you have the facial reconstruction on the WWII victim for me yet?"

"No, I'm almost done though. So how was your night last night?" she asked curiously.

"Great, I had a really good time." She said while brushing away an annoying piece of hair.

Just then Angela screamed at the top of her lungs, and everyone came running. When they all got there they asked:

"Angela what's wrong are you ok?"

"Yeah I'm fine just a little angry at Brennan right now."

"Why? What did I do?"

"You didn't tell me you're engaged!"

"I don't know what you're talking about Ange." She said with a smirk.

"Oh yes you do, don't play that game with me! Who is he and when?"

"Booth proposed last night and I said yes."

The whole team was rendered speechless by this news but after getting over the shock they all shouted:

Angela still hadn't moved until she said:

"Oh I am so going to kill Mr. G-man"


"He told me I would find out about this or whatever he was doing!"

"Actually I think his words were 'be patient Ange you'll find out soon enough!"

"Whatever but aside from that your ring is gorgeous!"

"You like it? It was my mothers."

They all stared at her confused. Until she said:

"I'll explain and tell you about last night all in one how about that it'll make things easier."

During her story there were a lot of interruptions (mainly from Angela) but she got through. When she finished Cam and Angela told her how romantic it was, Zack and Hodgins were just sitting there even more shocked than before and Sweets was sitting there with a little smirk on his face (almost like he was gloating).

Then Booth walked in and said:

"Hey Bones, ready for lunch?"

"Sure, but I think Ange wants to scream at you first." She said laughing.

"Ok, so I take it everyone knows?"

"Yep, we know" they all answered.

"So when is the wedding Booth?"

"We don't know yet."

"WHAT! Ok I am so taking over and planning this wedding."

"You don't have to do that Ange, in fact I'd rather you didn't, I don't want to put too much pressure on you."

"Ok that hurt Bren and I want to do it pressure or not."

She looked at Booth and he shrugged his shoulders and nodded telling her to do it. She gave in and said:

"Alright Ange you can do it and thank you."

"You won't be sorry Sweetie and you're welcome. This is going to be the best wedding ever!"

Cam then said to her team:

"Ok everyone you get an hour off so we can start planning the wedding but then it's back to work. Ok people?"

"Thanks Cam and I promise we will be back to work before that."

About an hour later Brennan said:

"I think I've had enough for one day but at least we've decided who the ring bearer will be."

"Yeah and who's that?"

"Parker, I even thought you would have figured that out."

"I think that's a great idea Bones."

"Thank you so when do you want to ask Rebecca if it's ok?"

"How about after work and we could also ask Parker himself."


They worked for about three more hours and then they left for Rebecca's house. When they got there they rang the door bell, and she answered basically instantly.

"Oh, hello Seeley… Temperance."

"Hey Becca."

"Hello Rebecca."

Just then Parker appeared and basically attacked his father with a big "bear hug". Then when he moved on to Brennan, Rebecca noticed the ring and smiled:

"I see that Seeley finally proposed."

"Yes he did, we came to ask you and Parker permission to be the ring bearer at the wedding?"

"I say that's a great idea. What about you Parks?"

"Sure but um…I wouldn't know what to do."

"We'll teach you Parks, it's quite simple when you get the hang of it." Said Brennan

"Ok! Now I'll have two mommies'!" he squealed.

At that both Temperance and Rebecca smiled and said:

"Yeah Parker, I guess so."

After they said goodbye, they got into the Tahoe and drove home. Both anticipated and dreaded the months of work ahead, but together they could do anything.
