A Happy Bones Day to all you Americans.
Excerpt from Chapter One:
"Yes. Booth and I are considering marriage." Brennan stated.
Everyone was still gaping as Brennan rushed off the forensic platform.
"We heard that correctly? Married?" Cam asked, glancing between her colleagues.
"Wow. Married." Hodgins whistled and shook his head.
"I know, right?" Angela was grinning like an excited schoolgirl.
Nine Months Later:
A very pregnant Temperance Brennan waddled down the hallway of the Jeffersonian Institute. Obviously, something had happened that fateful night and now she was quite a sight to see. She swiped her card and walked up to the top of the forensic platform.
Brennan pulled on some gloves; at this point unable to button her lab coat she hoped that the body wasn't a particularly gooey one. She made her way over to the table and did her best to bend down and squint at the remains.
"Huh." She said.
Angela chuckled as she made her way up the platform. "Sweetie, at seven months pregnant you really shouldn't be working."
"Booth hasn't pulled me off any cases yet." Brennan said, matter-of-factly.
"Booth just doesn't want to deal with your wrath." Angela shook her head.
Cam strode up the platform. "That's because he's a smart man."
Angela nodded. "Touché."
Hodgins joined the other three on the platform around the only-slightly-gooey dead body. "Woah, I can get some awesome particulates off this." He plucked off some silver flecks with tweezers and placed them into a Petri dish. "Hey Dr. B, lookin...." He paused as he noticed the death gaze that Angela was throwing him. "... good."
There was an awkward silence on the platform as Brennan responded with merely an 'uhhuh' and continued to examine the remains.
The silence was broken when Booth appeared at the bottom of the stairs. "We've got another dead body for you to examine, Bones."
"Alright." Brennan nodded, snapping off her gloves and looking up.
"Should she really be going out into the field, Seeley?" Cam asked.
"Yeah Booth, shouldn't Bren be taking it easy?" Angela chimed in.
He glanced up at the three most fearsome women in his life. Knowing that his wife's wrath would be the worst, he decided to blatantly ignore the other two. He gave a tug to his cocky belt buckle, threw Angela and Cam a charm grin, and helped his very pregnant wife down the stairs.
Cam sighed and shook her head.
"I bought a little onesie the other day." Angela cooed. "That kid is gonna be so cute."
Cam laughed. "Those two are going to drive us crazy."
And Hodgins, like the smart man he was, kept his mouth shut and his nose out of it.
"So, what do we got Bones?" Booth shifted from foot to foot, watching his partner work. It was true that he was keyed up with worry, and not about the case.
"I would say that these marks on the bones are consistent with the other- Oh!"
"Oh? Oh! Bones?" Booth caught her as she stumbled backwards, gripping at her stomach.
"We've got to get to the hospital." Brennan announced.
"Now?" Booth flustered. Brennan groaned in pain again. "Right. Now."
He rushed Brennan to the SUV and they sped over to the hospital.
Booth paced alongside his wife.
"It seems you've had a placental abruption." The doctor explained.
"Will the baby be alright?" Brennan asked as another sharp pain cause her to double over.
"The baby will be fine. We'll do an immediate C-section." The doctor assured, ready to wheel Brennan into the hospital room.
"Booth?" Brennan's voice was filled with worry. He gripped her hand tightly and stared straight into her eyes. "You're going to be fine, our kid is going to be fine." His warm brown eyes reassured her, hopefully they would reassure himself as well.
Booth made his way out into the waiting room of nervous squints.
His grin had never been wider. He hadn't felt this happy, well since Parker had been born.
"She's fine." Booth announced. "Brennan is great. She's resting."
"And the baby?" Cam asked.
"Healthy and beautiful. My baby girl." Booth grinned.
Cam came forward and hugged the proud father.
Angela turned and gave Hodgins a cheerful kiss as tears of joy clouded her eyes. She wiped them away, laughing, and offered Booth a hug. "We're all so happy for you." Angela grinned.
Booth returned her enthusiasm. "I know."
"So," Angela step forward, a mischievous look in her eyes. "What are you going to name her?"
Booth's eyes widened. The baby had come early. They hadn't picked a name yet.
A/N: Dun dun dun. Okay the ending was supposed to be humorous.
Setting it up for the sequel entitled Bingo Baby. Which should be up in a few days. Let's just say, Brennan's hilarious parenting styles ensue.
Thanks, for all the readers and reviewers who have stuck with me through the journey. Hope you come along with me on the next.
