Here it is, the final chapter! (Although I do reserve the right to add on at a later point, haha!) Hope you enjoy! This is just a short chapter, but I think it ends it pretty well!
Thank you all for reading!
The next morning, Brennan awoke with Booth's arm wrapped around her. She became aware that she was completely unclothed, and so was he, and smiled at the thought of his body against hers. She was lying awake, smiling, and she felt him stir beside her.
Booth awoke with his arm draped around Bones, his face close to her hair. He smiled as he pulled her closer to him, smelling her hair. He placed kisses on her neck behind her ear. She laughed at his kisses tickling her ear and stretched, turning to face him.
"You really are beautiful," Booth told her as their eyes met. She leaned in to kiss him softly and wrap her arms around him pulling him in. He leaned over her, brushing her hair from her face and smiling.
"Do you feel any regret…that we did this?"
Bones looked him square in the eyes. "Not at all. I have wanted this for so long, Booth."
He smiled and leaned in to kiss her. "Me too," he said between kisses.
Their mid morning cuddlefest was interrupted by Brennan's doorbell ringing.
"Who do you think it is?" Booth whispered to her.
"I have no idea," she whispered back, throwing the covers off and grabbing her housecoat from her closet. Booth threw on his pajama pants and they both tiptoed out of the bedroom. Brennan cracked open the door, "Dr. Sweets! Good to see you!" she glanced behind her at Booth who was making sure the couch looked slept on and was trying to find his shirt. She opened the door. "Come in!" she said.
"Dr. Brennan, its nice to see you again…" his face scrunched slightly as he questioned her wardrobe. He then turned his attention to Booth on the other side of the room, who was stretching and yawning from the coach, trying to appear like he just woke up.
"Hey! Sweets! How's it going! Just woke up. Ya know, haven't quite adjusted to the time difference and all."
Sweets met him in the middle of the room and shook his hand, but raised an eyebrow and glanced at them both. "Something happened, didn't it?"
"What do you mean?" "No, of course not," they answered simultaneously.
Sweets glanced at Bones, who was suppressing a smile, with her arms crossed in front of her. He then looked at Booth, still without a shirt on, looking the other direction and scratching the back of his neck.
"Anyway, I was just stopping by to drop off your keys, Booth. I think its safe to go back to your apartment later today. Sorry again about the mix up," he dug the keys out of his pocket and handed them to Booth.
"No problem, Sweets!" he said. Really…no problem at all, he thought. "Thanks for watching the place for me."
"So I guess I'll be seeing you in a few days when you come in for your evaluation before you start back to work."
"Right, yeah, I'll give you a call later this week."
"Great…" there was a long awkward silence. "So, Dr. Brennan, you should probably come in with Booth. It would be good to have a catch up session."
Bones nodded her head, "Of course. I'll also give you a call next week."
Dr. Sweets turned to walk back toward the door. They followed him toward the exit. He turned back around, his eyes passing back and forth between the two of them. "You know, I spent the time while you both were gone writing a report to the FBI. It states arguments for the two of you to be able to remain partners if a romantic relationship were to occur between the two of you," he paused, still looking for some kind of reaction. "I don't know if it will do any good, but they didn't respond that negatively to it… if you two were to ever become romantically involved, that is…."
"Oh! Well, That's very intriguing of you, Dr. Sweets," Brennan answered, holding her expression.
Booth's guard was let down slightly, and Sweets caught him glancing and smiling toward Brennan. Something in the glance alerted Sweets to what happened, and he backed off. "Anyway, I'll see you both later," he said, smiling one more time in Booth's direction, and walked out the door.
After Brennan closed the door behind him, she glanced at Booth and started laughing. Booth took her in his arms and held her close. She smiled at having his strong arms wrapped around her and her body pressed so closely to his chest. "We're going to have to tell him, aren't we?" she asked him.
"Yes, and we'll have to disclose our relationship to the FBI. Hopefully they'll let us stay partners."
"Maybe Dr. Sweet's evaluation will help."
"Maybe." Booth said, pulling her away from him just enough to look into her eyes. "I want to stay partners with you."
"Yes, me too. I was always afraid that the FBI wouldn't let us work together anymore. But I'm not so worried about that anymore."
"Why is that?" he asked, smiling down at her.
"We have the best crime solving statistics in the city. And Dr. Sweets is on our side, once we tell him of course. But also, even if we don't work together, we'll still be together."
"So you won't break this off so we can't be partners?" Booth asked, playing with her housecoat sash.
She shook her head, and her eyes filled with the same desire Booth saw in them last night. "I love you, Booth. I don't want that to change. I want you to be that guy, the one I'm with fifty years from now."
"I love you, too," he pulled her into a deep kiss and untied her housecoat while he held her close. He picked her up and put her on the counter, standing between her legs which she wrapped around him. "I knew it, ya know," he stated, breaking free from the kiss and giving her a cocky smile.
"I knew it, first," she said, her arms wrapped around his neck.
"Not so sure about that, Bones." he said while she attempted to kiss him to silence him. "I at least admitted it first," he said through the kiss.
"Whatever you say, you're right," Bones said drawing him closer between her legs, her desire for him increasing. "Just shut up and have sexual relations with me."
"Bones, can we please call it something a little less scientific?"
"Whatever you want, just fu** me already!"
"Bones!" Booth shouted in surprise.
"Well, what am I suppose to say!" she asked.
"Nevermind!" Booth said, grabbing her off the counter and walking toward the bedroom with her straddling him, kissing each other the whole way there.
I know this was a short ending chapter, but I've had a hard time updating regularly with school right now. I hope to start a new story soon though! Thank you all for reading! You have all been wonderful!
