Chapter 12: The Surprise in the Invitations

A/N: Okay, so here it the big chapter! =) I changed the date of the wedding. I hope you guys don't mind. I will go back and fix it in the previous chapter when she told Angela the date. Well I really hope you guys like this chapter! :D There is a scene in this chapter that is rated a mild M.


Saturday, July 23rd continued:

Brennan could feel her hands trembling when she placed the last wedding invitation on one of her colleague's desk. Each invitation was in a glass bottle in the form of a letter. She knew that most of the team knew about her and Booth being together romantically, and she wanted to get back at them for not bringing it to her and Booth's attention, so she thought that surprising them with a wedding invitation would serve them right. Angela laughed with delight when Brennan shared her plan with her over the phone. Angela was to act surprised when she received hers. Brennan had made sure that there was a surveillance camera in every room of the colleagues that she placed an invitation in. She also made sure it was at the right angle to capture their facial expressions. She was very excited and highly amused at her plan. This was going to be a wedding invitation that people would talk about for years to come.


Monday morning:

Sweets and Hodgins were the first ones to get the invitation. The first thing Sweets saw when entering his office was a glass bottle. He walked over to it with a confused look on his face.

"What is this?" He asked Hodgins. When he noticed that there was a piece of antique looking paper inside, he was dying with curiosity.

"Dude, don't ask me, it's your office." Hodgins said putting his hands up in surrender and taking a step back.

"Why would a message in a bottle be sent here?" Sweets asked absolutely puzzled.

"Again, dude, I have no idea. I am just here to talk with you about Daisy, remember? I still don't understand why you just don't take Booth's advice and move on. I mean, seriously man, she left you to go across the world and didn't even care if you followed her or not… Oh! Maybe it's a love letter from Daisy?" Hodgins told Sweets trying to help, but only irritating Sweets in the process. Sweets didn't even care to explain to Hodgins that Brennan and Booth pretty much did the same exact thing to each other.

"I don't know…." Sweets finally said doubtfully

"Well there is only one way to find out. Open it Sweets." He said excitedly.

Sweets popped the cork and unrolled the elegant letter that was tied with a piece of ocean blue ribbon.

They both thought that their eyes were going to bulge out of their head when they read the content of the letter together:

Dear Friend,

You are invited to celebrate the love of Temperance Brennan and Seeley Booth when they enter their new lives together as husband and wife. The Wedding ceremony will take place in the Jeffersonian gardens on Saturday, August 6, 2011 at 8:00pm. We hope to see you there. Please get back to Temperance with your measurements by today, for you are invited to be in the wedding.

Thank you,

Temperance Brennan and Seeley Booth

"Dude! Is this some kind of sick joke!" Hodgins screamed to no one in particular.

"She doesn't even believe in marriage!" Sweets screamed to Hodgins. "Oh now I really am going to have to tell Director Cullen and Hacker. What in the heck are they thinking of getting married before even informing their bosses!" Sweets continued with his rant.



Cam was the second person to notice the strange message in a bottle on her desk. She had just gotten done reading the novel by Nicholas Sparks: A message in a Bottle, so she thought she was just seeing things. She walked over to her desk and picked it up and removed the cork from the bottle. She dropped the bottle to the floor, shattering it into a million pieces, from her disbelief after reading the invitation written inside.

"Oh My God, Oh My God, Oh My God, I am most definitely seeing things!" She screamed. "Angela, get your ass in here right now!" She screamed outside her door.


Brennan and Angela were sitting on the couch in Brennan's office watching the live feed of Cam. Both women trying to contain their laughter at her reaction, but both failing miserably. They thought that Sweets and Hodgins' reactions were funny, but man were they wrong. The thing that Brennan found most funny about Sweets' reaction was that Sweets seriously believed that Director Cullen and Hacker were not informed.

Brennan and Booth had informed them over breakfast Saturday morning at the diner. Cullen and Hacker were not at all surprised and congratulated the two of them on both their upcoming nuptials and the announcement of Brennan being pregnant. Both Brennan and Booth were surprised to see how calm Hacker was, but he explained that he always knew that there was something special going on between the two partners, and was just waiting for the two of them to finally open their eyes and see it for themselves.

"Oh, my god Sweetie, this was such a fantastic idea! Did you see the look on her face when she was reading it!" Angela asked Brennan laughing.

"I most certainly did, Angela. I was watching it with you," she responded to her best friend's question like it was obvious.

"Angela!" They heard the shrieking panicked yell again.

"Sorry, Sweetie, but the boss calls," she said with a laugh.

"She is not calling Angela...she is yelling," Brennan responded with a knowing smirk on her face.

"I'll be back soon, sweetie, don't have too much fun." She said laughing historically on her way out of Brennan's office.

"Oh, I most certainly will," Brennan said. They both shared a laugh before Angela left the office and shut the door behind her.

Brennan tuned her gaze back to the computer screen, where she could still see Cam pacing the room and screaming for Angela.


"Cam what on earth is going on! You almost blew my eardrums to pieces!" Angela acted annoyed when asking Cam what was the matter, but in reality, she just wanted to burst out in laughter at the whole situation.

"Oh, I'm so sorry Angela, but you will be yelling just as loud when you hear what I am about to tell you!"

"Well, come out with it already, Cam!"

"Dr. Brennan and Booth are getting married!" She said it in all one breath and then sat down in her chair taking deep breaths in and out.

Angela couldn't hold in her laughter anymore. She burst into a fitful of laughter before screaming toward the camera, where she knew it was hidden, "Sweetie, get your ass in here, and explain to her what is going on!" She demanded of Brennan still laughing historically.

Cam looked at Angela with a confused expression on her face.


In her own office, Brennan started laughing at how long Angela lasted. She should have known that there was no way that she could keep this a secret for too long.

Brennan placed her laptop on the couch and got up to head to Cam's office.


In Cam's office

"So let me get this straight, this is not a joke? You and Booth are really getting married next Saturday in the Jeffersonian gardens?" Cam asked Brennan, still in shock of it all.

"That is correct, yes." Brennan said with a big smile.

"Oh, thank god! I thought that when Angela told you to get in here and explain to me what was going on, that you and Booth were just pulling a fast one on me."

"I believe fast one, means joke?" When Cam nodded then Brennan began to speak again, "No, we are really getting married, but that is not all you need to know about Booth and I, Cam..."

"Oh, no, you two are being spilt up from the FBI? Is it because of Hacker? I never did like him, he has a creepy vibe to him", Cam said with a terrified and sad expression on her face. Angela and Brennan started laughing, highly amused at what she had to say about Director Hacker.

"No, Cam don't worry, Director Cullen and Hacker are happy for our upcoming nuptials and the announcement of me being pregnant. However, Booth would most certainly like hearing that you never liked Hacker. He was never very fond of him. " That got Cam to sit back down and take a folder to use as a fan because she was for certain that she would soon faint. It took her a while to gain her voice back.

"You're p-pr- pregnant?" Brennan nodded her head with excitement.

"Oh my god! Congratulations, Dr. Brennan!", Cam said jumping up from her chair and developing Brennan into an affectionate hug, that Brennan returned.

"Thank you, Cam, but please don't tell anyone else. I am just telling you because you are my boss and you needed to be informed. I am due in the middle of March. Booth and I are going to inform the rest of the team during the reception brunch the following day after the wedding. The wedding is going to be small and Booth and I decided that we weren't going to have a huge reception party, since I am unable to drink."

"You're secret is safe with me, Dr. Brennan. But why did you tell us you guys were getting married through the wedding invitation?"

Brennan and Angela then explained to Cam that they knew the secret that her, Sweets, and Hodgins had made and how a good payback was in order. All three women laughed.


Booth and Brennan were lying on Brennan's bed, back at her apartment watching the team's reactions of the wedding invitations, both holding on to each other, laughing. Booth wiped tears away from his eyes from laughing so hard.

"Bones, you are a genius, do you know that!" Booth asked her still laughing.

"Yes Booth, I am well aware of that. Thank you," She said with a smirk.

Booth pulled her closer into his arms. "I love you Bones." He said placing a kiss on the top of her head.

"I love you too, Booth." She said looking up at him. "You're not mad that I told them this way?" She asked with concern in her voice.

"Are you kidding? No way! They deserved to be told the way that they were, after doing what they did. I just wish I was there with you and Angela when you two were watching the live feed." He said with a fake pout.

"I will admit, it was quite amusing," she said with a big grin.

"Now all we have to tell is Parker, your dad, Russ, and Caroline."

"Wait, what about Jared and Padme? You should really invite your brother to our wedding, Booth. I know you don't really like him, but he's still your brother."

"Don't worry, Bones, I already told him. He came with me to pick out your ring." He said with a smile. "Padme also knows, Jared told her. He wanted to know if you were going to ask her to be a bridesmaid? I told him I didn't know."

"Oh good, and of course I am!" She smiled at him. "Angela is my maid of honor. Cam, Amy, and Padme will be bridesmaids. And I figured that you would have Jared as your best man, Hodgins, Sweets, and Russ as the groomsmen since you are close to them and because Russ is my brother." She smiled brighter at him. Booth couldn't help but smile at how excited she looked. He never pegged Temperance Brennan to be so excited about planning a wedding, especially for a woman who claimed that they were a useless ritual.

"Yes, you are right about that, but I didn't ask Jared to be my best man. I am going to ask Hodgins if he would do me the honor."

"Really?" She asked him surprised.

"Yeah, I am closer to Hodgins. I don't even really talk to Jared."

"That makes sense. How did Jared respond to us getting married? Was he as happy as Pops was when we told him Saturday afternoon?"

"He was happy, he said it was about time, but no one could be as happy as Pops was." With a smile he began remembering his pops reaction to the announcement of not only the wedding but them having a baby together too. He was so happy that he broke out into a crazy dance in the retirement home, singing: "Temperance and Seeley sitting in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G, first comes the baby, then comes the marriage, but that's okay, that's okay, because I love the two of them anyway!" Brennan even joined in on Booth's laughter at the scene in front of them.

But then Booth was brought out of his memory when she spoke, barely audible, "not even Parker?" She asked him with worry in her voice.

"Bones, Parker loves you. He wanted us to date remember?" He said kissing her on the forehead.

"Yes, because he wanted a pool." She said, unsure of how the reality of the situation would play out. Would Parker really be happy about her marrying his father?

"He loves you, Bones, he told me so."

"Really?" She asked, still doubtful.

"Yes, you'll see, when we tell him Friday night, when he comes here to stay with me- us for the weekend." He said with a smile. "Now what about your dad, Russ, and Caroline? How are we going to tell them? You know that Caroline is like a mother to me, and I know you see her like that for you as well, so I think that she should be informed about our wedding."

"Yes I do. I would really like for our child to call her grandma since my mother is dead and your mother is never around. I think she would make a wonderful grandmother. However, there is no need to tell them. I sent my dad and Russ their invitation in the mail Saturday morning. I placed Caroline's on her desk." She said with a devious smirk fully in place.

Booth slightly pulled out of their close embrace.

"Bones! Your dad is going to murder me!" He said, totally ignoring what she had said about having their child call Caroline grandma. He did really like that idea. He was actually going to talk to her about that after the baby was born.

"Why would he murder you? Booth it's just an invitation, there is no need for him to murder you."

"It is not just any invitation! It is an invitation to our Wedding! You usually don't tell your close family and friends that you are getting married in a wedding invitation, Bones. Especially, not your father. And…Uh, Bones, I hate to remind you of this, but I never asked your dad for permission for your hand in marriage" Brennan gave Booth a degusted look. Booth put his hand up before she could speak.

"I know, I know, you don't need permission and that's why I didn't ask him, but he is going to be really upset that you told him this way."

"Well, what is done is done, Booth. There is nothing I can do about it now. All three of them should have gotten their invite today or tomorrow."

Booth groaned.

"Booth, everything is going to be fine. I promise."

"Well you reworded the invites a little bit? You changed them so they weren't so formal right?" Booth asked, scared of the answer that he was going to receive.

"Of course I did." She said with a smile. "I also asked Caroline to marry us. She has her license to do so. I remember her telling me that if we ever got our heads out of our butts, and realized that we were madly in love with one another, that she got her license so that she could marry us, because she thinks of us as her children and there is no way in hell, she is letting some bull headed judge marry us. Caroline's words not mine, Booth. And I can certainly assure you that my head was never in my gluteus maximus." She said with a laugh.

He laughed too, pulling her on top of him so that she was straddling his lap and sharing a kiss.


Max returned home from his vacation to find a package on the doorstep of his apartment. He picked it up and walked into the apartment, shutting the door behind him. He was not used to getting mail, so he was a little anxious, if not a little bit nervous to see what could possibly be inside the shoe sized box. He took his apartment key and sliced through the tape. He then removed the bubble wrap that was encasing the object in question to reveal a glass bottle with a message inside just like the others. He undid the cork and took the letter out, untying the ribbon and began reading it:

Dear Dad,

You are invited to celebrate the love of Booth and I, when we enter our new lives together as husband and wife. The Wedding ceremony will take place in the Jeffersonian gardens on Saturday, August 6, 2011 at 8:00pm. I can't wait to make your dream of walking your baby girl down the aisle come true, even though I am no longer considered a baby, nor a girl. Please call me as soon as you receive this invite so that I can set up a time for you to get fitted for your tux. Booth and I also need to tell you some other important and joyous news that I know you will find quite exciting. I love you dad.

Always your baby girl (well, not latterly),


He was for sure that this had to be some kind of cruel joke that Booth and his daughter were playing on him for all the times that he accused them for being together romantically, but god, he hoped he was wrong. After all, his daughter could be quite blunt at times and would refuse for Booth to ask him for his blessing because she was 'a strong and independent woman who didn't need permission to live her own life.' He reread the letter again, and decided that this had to be true because it was a very personal letter. She knew how much he dreamed of walking her down the aisle ever since the day he held her in his arms for the first time. And then she said, there was more news that was important and he would be excited about and it was joyous. 'Is my baby girl pregnant? No she can't be', he told himself. He then picked up his cell and called his daughter's cell phone, but only to have it go straight to voicemail. He left a quick message for her to call him back when she got his message and hung up, knowing that there was no way in hell that he was going to get any sleep that night. He knew that he should call Russ and warn him of what to expect when opening it, knowing that his daughter would invite him, but decided that if he had to almost have a heart attack, so did his son.


The kiss that they shared soon turned passionate and loving and Brennan and Booth wanted to live every moment together like it was their last. She grazed his bottom lip, then soothing the sensitive skin with her tongue. Booth urged her forward by gently pulling her head down and running the other hand up her shirt to unclasp her bra with one hand. Brennan pulled away from the hot and searing kiss to bring her arms above her head. He quickly removed her blouse and bra, then pulling her back down for another earth shattering kiss. Brennan groaned when her bare breasts pushed up against his chest. The pleasure of needing his naked flesh against her own, almost unbearable. She pulled away momentarily to rid him of his shirt. When it was removed she lowered her head back down and kissed him again, tongues fighting in a sweet dominance.

Booth flipped Brennan off of his lap so that he was hovering over her perfect body. She looked up at him with pleading eyes, begging him to give her what her body so badly craved. He understood those eyes instantly, and undid the clasp of her jeans while leaving hot kisses down her body and stopping at her belling button, swirling his tongue around the sensitive area. When the pants were completely off her mile long legs, he rid her of her panties. She was completely bare to his eyes. She was breathtakingly beautiful. She was panting with need.

"Booth… please…. I need to feel you inside of me."

Booth backed away from her beautiful body and got up off of the bed and removed his pants, boxers, and of course, his funky striped socks, before lowering himself over her once more.

She arched her head back in pleasure when he entered her in one smooth thrust. "Temperance, I love you so much." He said while kissing her ear lobe and thrusting at the perfect pace.

"I love you too, Booth… oh! Please… faster, faster…. Ahhhhhhhhh! Yes, Yes, Booth, that's it! Oh, Booth!" Both their bodies then gave in to the sweet release from finally being reconnected after such a long day. They collapsed into a tangle of limbs, enjoying the feeling that their two naked bodies gave.


Tuesday, July 26th, Russ and Amy's house

6:33 A.M

"Daddy, daddy, wake up, wake up!" Two little girls screamed while shaking their father. Their mother was pouring cereal and milk in two bowls in the kitchen.

"Okay, I'm up, I'm up!" Russ said laughing at Emma and Haley's excitement. "How are my two favorite princesses this morning?"

"You have a package from Auntie Temperance!" Emma screamed with delight, before jumping on the bed and plopping on her knees.

"Yeah, see daddy? Right here", Haley said while handing over the package to her father.

Russ looked at it curiously. It was not only addressed to him, but also to Amy and the girls. 'How odd' he thought to himself.

"Haley, can you please get your mom?"

Before Haley could answer, her mother asked, "For what, may I ask?" She said smiling from the doorway.

"Hey, honey. This package is from Tempe and it is addressed to all of us. Care to see what it is with me while I open it? I have no idea what it could possibly be."

"Absolutely," she said walking over to the bed and plopping down, Haley following.

Russ grabbed his key on the night stand and cut through the tape. Father like son. He looked at the object with wonder, when seeing that it was a glass bottle.

"Why would Auntie Temperance send us a bottle in the mail?" Emma asked scrunching up her face with confusion.

"Not just any bottle. It has a message inside!" Haley said with excitement.

Amy looked at Russ, urging him to open the bottle and take out the letter.

Russ read it first, shock evident in his features. Amy became worried and took the message from his hands and read it too. Her face also showing shock.

Dear Russ, Amy, Emma, and Haley,

You are all invited to celebrate the love of Booth and I when we enter our new lives together as husband and wife. The Wedding ceremony will take place in the Jeffersonian gardens on Saturday, August 6, 2011 at 8:00pm. I know that this is short notice, but we hope to see all of you there. Russ, please call me as soon as you get this, for Booth and I want you, Amy, and the girls to be in the wedding. I love you all.



He couldn't believe that his little sister was going to get married! She had stated several times at his and Amy's wedding that she would never get married. What changed her mind? Russ was brought out of his thoughts by his daughters.

"What does it say, what does it say?" Emma and Haley asked excitedly, jumping up and down on the bed.

"Auntie Temperance is getting married and she has invited us to be in it." He said, shocked at his own words.

The room was then filled with delighted chatter of what their Auntie Temperance would look like on her wedding day, and how excited they were that they were going to be in her wedding. Russ and Amy just stared at each other, still shocked and surprised.


Same day, FBI building

7:45 A.M

When Caroline walked into her office, she was not expecting to see what she did. The glass bottle with a message inside sat in the middle of her desk. She knew enough about messages in a bottle to know that they were usually found in a body of water and not on a prosecutor's desk. She walked over to her desk, pulling out her chair and taking a seat. She had a feeling that whatever was in that bottle was going to make her light headed.

She picked up the bottle, removed the cork and then untied the ocean blue ribbon that was keeping the secret of the letter hidden. When she read the letter, she was very glad that she had decided to sit down after all:

Dear Caroline,

You are invited to celebrate the love of Booth and I when we enter our new lives together as husband and wife. The Wedding ceremony will take place in the Jeffersonian gardens on Saturday, August 6, 2011 at 8:00pm. I know that this is short notice, but we hope to see you there. You have said to me a few years ago that you had gotten your license so that you could marry us if Booth and I ever decided to embark on the journey of love. We are finally ready to do that, and nothing would make Booth and I happier than to have the woman that we both think of as a mother, to marry us. There is another question Booth and I would like to ask you. Is it okay, that our child calls you grandma? Booth and I are expecting our first child together in the middle of March, and because both Booth's and my mother are no longer around, we think that you would make the best grandmother for our child. We know you would love him or her like they were your biological grandchild, just like you love Booth and I like we are your own children. We care for you deeply, Caroline, I think that it could even be defined as love. Please give me a call with your answer.

P.S: Please keep my pregnancy a secret. We haven't told many people yet besides our bosses, Booth's Pops and Angela. I will be telling my father before the wedding. The rest of the 'squint squad' will be informed at the reception brunch the following day after the wedding at my apartment.

Always, like your daughter,


Caroline Julian was not one to cry, but that lady scientist of Booth's was one fine and caring woman. She had always thought of Booth as her son, and because she knew that Booth loved Dr. Brennan and that they would someday get their heads out of their butts; she grew to love her as well, even as a daughter. But when on earth did Dr. Temperance Brennan learn how to read people?

"I am going to be a grandma!" Caroline said with excitement in her voice. Through the glass window, a woman looked at her with a confused expression on her face, knowing that she had no children .

"Mind your own business Cherie." Caroline said waving a hand at her and giving the woman a look that said, 'keep on walking, otherwise you will be sorry.'

Caroline had a daughter and son to congratulate, and she planned on doing it in person.


Friday, July, 29th

1:34 P.M

Today was the day, not the day that she and Booth were going to get married, but the day that she and Booth were going to inform Parker of the news. They decided to only tell him about the wedding for now, afraid that he would not be able to keep her pregnancy a secret from the others. She was not at all surprised to find her phone with one missed call from her Father when she woke up to go to work on Tuesday. Booth was even more surprised to find out that Max wasn't upset of how he was told that his daughter was getting married. Sure, Max was surprised that they were getting married, for he didn't even know that they were in a romantic relationship, but he knew how blunt his baby girl could be.

Brennan had gotten another call from her brother at 7:05 in the morning, congratulating her and Booth and assuring her that he, Amy and the girls wouldn't miss it for anything. They made an appointment for them to come down the following day to try on tuxes and dresses.

Angela, Cam, Padme , and Amy were now fitted in their dresses, along with Hodgins, Sweets, Jared, and Russ in their tuxes. The girls were fitted for the most adorable flower girl dresses. The wedding was all set, besides to tell Parker and get him fitted for his tux so that he was able to be the ring bear. Caroline was going to marry them just like she promised Brennan a few years back. Caroline had hugged Brennan and told her that she couldn't be more honored than to be the mother of the famous doctor and the grandmother of one very special and lucky baby. Brennan was relieved to hear this and hugged Caroline back, telling her that she was the one that was truly honored.


3:15 P.M

Booth was sitting outside of his son's school waiting to pick him up and then take him back to the diner where they would meet Brennan for a milkshake, and then tell him about the wedding. He had talked to Rebecca earlier that week telling her of his and Brennan's wedding and how they were planning on telling Parker together on Friday. She surprised Booth, when she enveloped him in a huge hug and congratulated him and wished him well with everything. Rebecca knew from the day she had talked to Dr. Brennan about why she decided not to marry Booth, that he and Brennan were meant to be together, and not as just partners.

Fifteen minutes after he had been parked out front of the school, an excited Parker came running towards the SUV and hopped in.

"Hey, dad! Where is Bones? I thought you said that she was coming to the diner with us?" His son asked with a disappointed look on his face when he noticed that his favorite scientist was not with his father.

"We are bub. She is already waiting for us there. We have some exciting news to share with you." Booth said ruffling up Parker's sandy blonde curls.

Parker beamed with a smile on his face, while fastening his seat belt, not able to help his excitement about hearing the exciting news. 'If only, it could be them telling me that they were dating. That would be so AWESOME! Then they could get married and give me a little brother or sister!' He thought with a secretive smile on his face while his dad started driving them to the diner. If only Parker knew that all his dreams were already coming true.


At the Diner:

Parker sat in his chair at a table, looking at the two partners with questioning eyes while making slurping sounds from his milk shake's straw. He finally stopped, pushing his milk shake away from him.

"Okay, spill." He said to both his father and Brennan.

Brennan gave a confused expression, before the idiom clicked in her brain.

"Oh, you are referring to us letting you in on the exciting news we have promised to share with you." Brennan said happy with herself for knowing what the young boy meant.

Booth smiled at her.

"Come on! What is the exciting news?" Parker asked, failing to hide how excited he was to hear what they could possibly have to tell him that was so exciting.

Booth was the first one to speak,

"Bub, do you remember, when you asked Bones and I why we couldn't date, and we said that it was because we worked together and you told us that it was a stupid reason?"

"Of course I do! I still think that it is the stupidest reason! You two are so in love with each other, it isn't even funny. You guys should get married and give me a little sister or brother. I would prefer a sister though. That way, I can help to protect her like you do to Bones."

Booth and Brennan looked at him with shock. At least he knew that he was okay with them getting married and having a baby. Brennan was happy to hear that he wouldn't be disappointed with having a little sister. She was still so certain that their baby was a girl.

"We agree with you Parker," Brennan finally said.

"What?…. you do?" Parker said leaning in on his elbows on the table, looking back and forth, between his father and Brennan.

Booth and Brennan nodded their heads to confirm his question.

"Parker, how would you feel if I told you that me and Bones are getting married on Saturday, in the Jeffersonian gardens?" Booth asked his son with the hugest smile on his face that Brennan had ever seen him give.

Parker got up off his seat and ran over to Brennan, sitting on her lap and giving her a huge hug. Brennan hugged him back with happy tears running down her cheeks.

"I would say that is Awesome!" Parker said while pulling away from Brennan and looking over to his father for a look, saying that he was serious. When he got a nod, Parker hugged Brennan again, saying, "I love you Bones, this is so awesome! Welcome to the family. You are going to be the coolest step mom ever! Corrine is going to be so jealous when I tell her on Monday!"

Apparently Corrine, a classmate of Parker's was a big fan of Brennan, and was always telling Parker how jealous she was that he got to hang out with her and she didn't. Parker was excited to tell her on Monday, that Brennan wasn't only his dad's work partner, but his dad's wife, making her his step mom.

Booth and Brennan started laughing with Parker after finding this out. This day couldn't have turned out more perfect.

A/N: So how did I do on this chapter? I hope I did it justice. Sorry if the smut was bad! I am not used to writing it! Haha. Please leave a review! Pretty, pretty please! I like to think I deserve it?
