A/N: someone asked for an epilogue. This is close enough. I hope you like the added bonus, and thank you SO much for the support of this story! =D
3 months later
Brennan glanced down at the stick, a feeling of nervousness creeping into her stomach.
She heard the sudden rap of knuckles on the bathroom door and her head snapped up. "I'm in here," she called out.
"I know," Booth's voice responded through the closed door. "Can I come in?"
Brenan sighed. It wasn't like she would be able to hide it from him, or even if she should hide it. It was his business as much as hers. "Yeah," she muttered her voice barely louder than a whisper.
In the last three months, things had simmered down considerably. Hannah was getting the professional help she needed, and was now out of their lives. Dr. Matthews had gotten all that he deserved, and was spending a considerable amount of years behind bars. Angela and Hodgins were doing well with a new baby on the way. The rest of the Jeffersonian team were as normal as they had always been, if normal was a word to describe the team.
Brennan's latest book was selling well, and the money was rolling in. Her new-found relationship with her partner and best friend, Booth, was making her exceedingly happy, and now to add this to the mix, Brennan couldn't help but feel slightly nervous.
Booth opened the door and poked his head in.
Brennan looked down at the stick in her hand. "Yes," she nodded slowly. "Booth, I have some news." Instead of vocally sharing their joy, she handed him the stick and he gingerly took it in his hand and his eyes widened in surprise.
"Oh my God," he gasped. "We're havin' a baby!"
"Yes," she confirmed. "I'm pregnant."
Booth laughed shaking his head in disbelief. All he ever wanted, every dream that had lingered in the back of his mind, came to the fore and he knelt down on the tiled floor beside his girlfriend. "Bones, this is fantastic," he took her hands in his, still stunned into silence, unable to process the information all at once.
"It is," she agreed. Brennan leaned over and kissed him softly on the mouth.
"Marry me?" he murmured against her mouth. "Marry me… Bones, marry me…"
Brennan pulled back to look into his face, and when she did, she saw a new kind of hope and desire in his expression, one that she couldn't reject, and unafraid of the future, so sure that whatever lay ahead they would solve it together, Brennan nodded. "Yes," she whispered.
The look on Booth's face when she accepted was like all of Heaven glistening on his face.
For those who are a sucker for complete and utter happy endings, and those who still believe there is hope for B&B yet… even if the wait is long, and our patience runs thin. ;)
