The Finally In The Finale.
A/N: I think this will be the last chapter, but who knows? Maybe I'll get really good reviews and might add another. Also might be able to think up some more plot. :D This chapter is 3 days after the last one. : )
A bit based off the lyrics from Michael Buble's "Haven't Met You Yet" because it's just such a beautiful song. : )
Enjoy and review away my pretties. ^_^
Chapter Two: The Amazing In The Love.
It's been three days since Booth and Brennan kissed and they've kept their distance. They finally caught the murderers. It turned out that the mother accidentally killed the baby after he kept crying one night and the step-father was sexually abusing the 3 year old and killed her. They would both face years in prison over the deaths of the children. The team went out to celebrate in their success. Well, all but Angela and Hodgins as they had Kelsey to take care of, so it was just Booth, Brennan, Cam and that week's Squintern Of The Week, Wendell at the Founding Fathers. Tomorrow, Brennan would hold Christian and Samantha's funerals.
"I am so glad this case is over", Wendell exclaims. "I have cousins the same age as Christian and Samantha. It was so hard working on those bones."
"Here here, Wendell. I can remember Parker being that age and I can't imagine Rebecca or Brent doing that to him."
The next day, Booth and Brennan are standing beside Christian and Samantha's tiny coffins, Booth with an arm around Brennan as she wipes a tear away.
"It's okay to be upset for them, Bones. They were just children."
"Parents are supposed to protect their children, Booth. They are supposed to care for them and love them. Why did these people do this to them? They were just babies."
"Bones, no one knows better us about bad parents. But you have Max trying to make up for 15 years lost. Not many fathers would do that. He's proving to you that you are loved and are worthy of love every day, Bones. You? You still have a chance at a fatherly relationship. My father beat me and drank. Yes, Bones, Max may have left you and Russ, but he came back. And he stayed. That says love, Bones."
"Thank you, Booth. I know your relationship with your father wasn't good, but thank you for saying those things. I guess I didn't realise how hard this case was on me until now."
"Me either, Bones. Me either."
A few days pass and Booth is sitting at home looking through pictures through the years of him and Bones and the team and he sees the growth in everyone, but mostly Bones. There are photos from their first year of working together; where year old feelings still lay just beneath the surface. There are also photos from this year; the year where feelings lay on the table unacknowledged and not spoken about; the year where they hurt each other unintentionally. These were mixed amongst other years and he could plainly see the change in Bones over the years. He could also see the love in her eyes growing. But this year? All he saw was pain and hurt. He knew being with Hannah had hurt her, but he never got the full brunt of just how much. He knew he loved her still and he knew she loved him. He had to do something about it.
Before his brain registers what's going on, he is up with his keys in hand running down to his car. He drives the 20 minute drive to Bones' in auto pilot, thinking about what he is going to say. Approaching her door, Booth realised he had reached the point of no return. It was all or nothing. He takes a deep breath as he knocks on her door. He waits 2 minutes for Bones to answer and he nervously taps his foot.
"Booth? What're you doing here?"
"Bones, do you remember that case where we were stuck in the stairs?"
"Yes, Booth. What does that have to do anything?"
"Just listen. Remember how after we got up to my apartment we made that wish about when we might want to be together?" Brennan nods, clearly confused. "Well, I'm ready. I want to be with you, Bones. I'm not going to be an asshat and scare you off by proposing a lifetime because I don't think I could survive if you ran again. Not that I'm saying you would… okay, I'm rambling. What I'm trying to say is that if I could choose between you and catching bad guys, I would choose you every time. You are worth it, Bones. You may not think you are worthy of being loved or that you could be able of loving someone back, but that is not true. You show love towards all of your friends and family. You love your father and brother, even though they left you. Hell, you're so lovable, Bones, I even fell in love with you. And you remember what we were like when we first met. Parker has even fallen in love with you. You are worth it, Bones. Every last bit. I love you, Temperance."
Brennan stands at her front door, unshed tears pooling in her ocean blue eyes, staring into Booth's warm chocolate brown ones. There is a waging war in her head whether to speak or to just act. She goes with the act part. She throws her arms around Booth's neck and shoulders and she presses her lips against his in a kiss that conveys so much. This kiss promises love, friendship, partnership and, most importantly, commitment. They stand in her doorway, lips still attached, when her 80 year old neighbour clears her throat. Booth's face immediately blushes as does Brennan's.
"Oh, hello, Joan."
"Hello, Dr Brennan. Agent Booth."
"Don't mind me, dears. Just going out for a minute."
"Okay. Have fun."
"I will. I wasn't eavesdropping, but I just heard the last part of you speech, Agent Booth. Very lovely. Reminds me of my husband."
"Say I love you back, Temperance!"
As Joan says that, Booth blushes more, and Joan walks off. Booth and Brennan look at each other, amused and embarrassed, like being caught by their parents or grandparents.
"Do you want to come in?"
"I would love that, Dr Brennan."
"Well come in, Agent Booth."
Booth and Brennan smile as they start a new part of their lives, finally together.
I'm not surprised, not everything lasts
I've broken my heart so many times, I stopped keeping track
Talk myself in, I talk myself out
I get all worked up, then I let myself downI tried so very hard not to lose it
I came up with a million excuses
I thought, I thought of every possibilityAnd I know someday that it'll all turn out
You'll make me work, so we can work to work it out
And I promise you, kid, that I give so much more than I get
I just haven't met you yetI might have to wait, I'll never give up
I guess it's half timing, and the other half's luck
Wherever you are, whenever it's right
You'll come out of nowhere and into my lifeAnd I know that we can be so amazing
And, baby, your love is gonna change me
And now I can see every possibilityAnd somehow I know that it'll all turn out
You'll make me work, so we can work to work it out
And I promise you, kid, I give so much more than I get
I just haven't met you yetThey say all's fair
In love and war
But I won't need to fight it
We'll get it right and we'll be unitedAnd I know that we can be so amazing
And being in your life is gonna change me
And now I can see every single possibilityAnd someday I know it'll all turn out
And I'll work to work it out
Promise you, kid, I'll give more than I get
Than I get, than I get, than I getOh, you know it'll all turn out
And you'll make me work so we can work to work it out
And I promise you kid to give so much more than I get
Yeah, I just haven't met you yetI just haven't met you yet
Oh, promise you, kid
To give so much more than I getI said love, love, love, love
Love, love, love, love
(I just haven't met you yet)
Love, love, love, love
I just haven't met you yet
A/N: So? Yay or nay? Yes, the asshat part is added from "The Sin In The Sisterhood". I love that part so much. Loved seeing season 4 Booth and Brennan interaction again. Favourite part of season 6 so far. :) The elevator episode scenes and the finale, I hope, will top that. ^_^
Review away! :D (There may be an epilogue if I feel like it :D)
