"Bren, pick up." Booth muttered as he disconnected and dialed again. Hodgins entered Booth's office and one look at his friend's face told him Booth was worried about Brennan.
"I'm sure she's fine." Hodgins took the seat across Booth's.
"I called her over and hour ago and she told me she was taking out the trash." Booth took a deep breath. "She said she'd call me back after so we could meet for lunch."
"Maybe she forgot?" Hodgins offered, knowing there could be something wrong with the picture.
"I've called her phone, my phone, and her cell phone; she's not picking up." Booth rose from his chair and began to pace, growing more worried with each passing second.
"Perhaps she's taking a bath or a really long shower." Hodgins was trying to ease Booth, but truth was…he too didn't like the silence. "Let me call my security guys and have them take a look." Booth nodded; he'd totally forgotten about the security guys. A few minutes later Hodgins ended his call. "They haven't seen her leave the apartment building. The last they saw of her was when she threw out the trash." Hodgins patted his friend on the shoulder.
"Where's Parker?" Booth asked, wondering why his son hadn't entered the office stating that he was hungry.
"Angela took him out to eat. I told her we'd catch up in a bit, but perhaps I should call her and tell her not to wait." Booth nodded. He wasn't leaving the office until he knew where Brennan was.
"She's not in the building." Hodgins told Booth his security people had done a thorough search and didn't find her. Booth's worry grew. "One of the guys…" Hodgins waited until he had Booth's undivided attention before continuing. "Saw a van advertising a plumbing company near the back exit around the time Brennan was out throwing the trash. He said he didn't think much of it. They stopped by the back exit and less than two minutes later they drove way. They left some posters advertising their service on the wall. I'm having them check out the company and locate her through the remote." The security remote had a tracking device.
Booth nodded, fearing the worst. "What if she doesn't have the remote with her?" Hodgins patted his friend on the back.
"We'll find her, man."
Brennan regained consciousness when she was grabbed by the front of her shirt and pulled out of the van. She stumbled before steadying herself. She noticed her hands were tied. The day was still sunny and she figured she hadn't been out that long. They were walking towards an abandoned building. She knew there would be no point in calling for help.
Brennan was taken to a room in the back of the building and was pushed to sit on a chair. There was a small table in front of her. She didn't recognize any of the three men in the room or the woman who had blocked her way in the entrance to her building. From the corner of her eye Brennan caught the glimpse of two people she did recognize. Sully and Rebecca stood still without saying a word in the corner of the room.
"Where is it?" The oldest man asked.
"What?" Brennan wasn't sure what they were talking about. She felt something make contact with her face; it felt like a hand. The only reason she wasn't on the floor was because she was being held by the woman.
"Where's the chip?" Brennan had no idea what he was talking about.
"I don't know what you're talking about." The man clenched his jaw at her response and Brennan braced herself for another slap. The man patted her cheek, "Let's try this one more time."
Hodgins nodded as he spoke on the phone. Booth was anxious to know what Hodgins had been told. Hodgins informed Booth that his security guys had located the remote near an abandoned building in the outskirts of the city.
"Let's go. What are we waiting for?" Booth was almost out his office.
"We need to be careful. If they have her there, we don't want to spook out whoever has her." Booth sighed, he knew Hodgins was right.
"I'm loosing my patience." The man whispered so only Jared could hear. Jared shot a look at Rebecca and he now knew Brennan had no idea of what was going on. Jared couldn't tell the man that Rebecca had lied because he would be the one in trouble.
Brennan watched as the older man turned around. She gulped, knowing his patience was long gone. The sad thing was that no matter what he did Brennan wouldn't be able to tell him what he wanted to know.
Booth and Hodgins arrived at the scene. There were officers there along with Hodgins' security people. The van was stolen and the descriptions the owners had given the police matched that of some wanted criminals. A state trooper had caught sight of the stolen van and followed at a discrete distance, immediately calling for back up.
"There's movement in the back of the building." An FBI agent in his mid forties informed Booth and Hodgins. The FBI was after the criminals and had been called to the scene."We're moving in and we need you guys to stand back and let us do our job." Booth nodded rapidly; all he wanted was to have Brennan safe in his arms.
Hodgins and Booth stood back and watched as the professionals ambushed the place.
Brennan's hands were placed on the table in front of her. "Which one's your favorite finger?" The man asked. Brennan's breathing was coming fast. He was going to chop off one of her fingers. Brennan closed her eyes and thought for a second. When she opened her eyes the man had an ax in the air, ready to swing it and chop off a finger or fingers. Brennan didn't know what took over her, but in an instant she had kicked the table towards the man, knocking him off balance. Her kick had also pushed her chair back and the woman holding her fell back. Brennan threw herself on the floor as gun fire started. She felt something hit her left thigh and pain surge through her body. There was a lot of movement in the room and Brennan didn't know what to do or what was coming next. A light flashed in her face and she looked at the person standing above her.
"What's going on in there?" Booth whispered as he waited for news. After a few minutes they saw movement out of the building. Four men and two women were led out of the building arrested. Booth's heart sank when he saw the paramedics enter the building with a gurney.
"Look 'baby momma' and 'ex husband'." Hodgins commented. Booth wasn't surprised to find his brother Jared among the arrested. Booth was too worried about Brennan to care about the others.
"Bren!" Booth ran towards the building's entrance. She was on the gurney and his heart was racing.
"Booth!" She made a move to get off the gurney when she saw him, but the EMT guys kept her in place. Booth reached her side and hugged her, kissing her forehead.
"I was so scared I wasn't going to see you again." He whispered in her ear; he didn't hold back his tears. Brennan wrapped her arms around him too, tears spilling from her own eyes.
Angela and Hodgins stood in the living room sharing a kiss. There was a knock on the front door and the two reluctantly ended their kiss. "It's probably Seeley." Hodgins commented as he walked behind Angela towards the door.
"Hey, Angela, Jack." Booth greeted them as he entered, Parker followed close behind. "How's Bren?" He asked.
"She was taking a nap when I checked on her about an hour ago." Parker's smile was gone. He wanted to see Brennan and hug her. "We were going to grab something to eat. You guys wanna tag along?" Angela asked.
"I do." Parker said.
"I'll stay here with Bren." Booth closed the door after them and headed to Brennan's room. As soon as he opened the door Brennan turned to look at him. "Hey, Angela said you were asleep." He walked to the bed and sat next to her, placing a soft kiss on her lips.
"I haven't been awake long." Brennan sat up, her back resting against a pillow. Booth mimicked her position on the bed, with his legs in a V shape. Brennan scooted closer and settled between his legs.
"How are you feeling? How's your thigh?" He asked as he wrapped his arms around her, resting his chin on her shoulder.
"I'm feeling better." Brennan ran her hands up and down his thighs, enjoying sitting there with him.
"I hate that you had to go through that, but I'm glad it's over." Booth kissed her neck, his hands moving up and down her sides.
"How did you know the chip they were looking for was inside Parker's bear?" Brennan didn't know how Booth knew the chip was inside the bear.
"I didn't, but it was worth checking. It was some sort of military intelligence thing." Jared's associates were wanted in various countries for a variety of crimes. Jared was the one who stole the chip from some guy and helped his associates get a seller for the chip. Rebecca and Sully would be doing time for being in on Brennan's kidnapping.
"Where's Parker?" Brennan rested her head on his shoulder and tilted her head to look at him. Booth told her his son was with Angela and Hodgins. They shared a long, slow kiss and sat in silence, enjoying their alone time to just hold each other.
It was a Sunday afternoon and classes would be in session the following day. Brennan watched as Booth and Parker returned to the bench she was sitting at. She remembered the first time she saw him at this exact same park.
"Hot, right?" Angela commented.
"What?" Brennan asked her friend, lost as to what she was referring to.
"Seeley Booth's hot, right?" Angela grinned.
"Who?" Brennan stared at her friend.
"Oh, please. You're totally checking him out." Angela pointed out and Brennan pretended she didn't know what her friend was talking about. "I see him at work and yes, he's hot." Angela arched her eyebrow.
"What are you smiling at?" Booth asked Brennan when he and Parker reached her side. She rose from the bench and they all walked back to Booth's SUV. Parker walked ahead of them and Brennan draped an arm on Booth's shoulders.
"I was totally checking you out." Brennan's laughter was contagious and Booth couldn't help but join her. He'd ask her what she met by that later.
This is where it ends:( but I already have figured out how the sequel's gonna go. Little sneak peak….Picks up a few months later. Angela and Hodgins are planning their wedding and B&B discuss moving in together.
