Chapter 1

Mother like Daughter


It was a normal day at the office, and Hotch had just introduced a new case. The team was sitting around the table but they were missing one. As Garcia was pulling up the pictures on the big screen, Callie walked in. “Sorry I am late. I was having to call my mom”.

“It’s ok Callie, just come on in and sit down with the team. Now where were we?” Hotchner said. The team had just gotten a new case today about this serial killer, “The Silencer”, that was going after the Jeffersonian employees. “The Silencer” would kill by stabbing the victim with a knife, then take out their tongue. Garcia chimed in “and the pictures are coming up on your screen now. We can tell “The Silencer” is ambidextrous by the way he/she make the cuts on the body. The body was stone cold and had been decapitated just like an animal that was hit by a car.  When Callie saw the first picture that popped up, she immediately gaped and said

“Oh my, that’s Dr. Saroyan. I know her, she’s my mom’s boss”. Hotchner walked over to her and grabbed her hand

“Callie It’s going to be all right. Why don't you go call your mom and tell her that you will be coming to Washington and that you want to meet her, after all she might be in jeopardy. JJ will go with you”.Callie’s arm was grabbed by JJ and they both walked out of the room.

After Hotch finished debriefing the team , they all headed out to go get on the private plane. Once the team had made it onto the plane, Hotch walked over to Callie and sat down. He grabbed her hand and kissed it just like he did the first time they met.

“Callie, everything is going to be ok, we are going to stop this guy, but I need you to promise me that you will do your job”. Callie looked Hotch in the eyes and then looked at her hand

“Yes Aaron I promise I will do my job”.

The plane landed after a short 30 minute ride. Once the team had disembarked and unpacked they headed over to the FBI headquarters. When Hotch’s team walked in the door they were greeted by this tall handsome fellow. He had eyes as blue as the sea.

“You must be Hotch from the Bureau” the fellow said.

“Yes I am and this is my team, Dr. Spencer Reid, Jennifer Jareau, Derek Morgan, Penelope Garcia, and Callie Brennan. And you are?” The tall fellow looked at Callie then back at Hotch and said,

“Welcome everyone I am Special Agent Booth, come on in”. After the team got the new info on “The Silencer” ,they headed over to the Jeffersonian.

Once the team arrived ,Derek and Callie went over to talk with the head Anthropologist.

“So Callie I hear this is a hard case for you to take on” Derek said.

“Yes it is Derek, thanks for reminding me of that. You're about to figure out why.” Callie spoke up. Derek and Callie walked into the bone room where there was a tall, dark haired women standing over a bunch of bones.  Callie turned and looked at Derek and said “watch this”. Callie walked over to the lady and gave her a big hug.  The Anthropologist then turned around and walked toward Derek. “Derek meet my mother, that I recently found out that I had, Dr. Temperance Brennan”.

Deleted User: (A review in progress). I like this. It's sparse, gritty and atmospheric - reminiscent of the classic Golden Age of American detective fiction of the Thirties. I've only read the beginning, but I'll definitely be back. This writer knows their stuff and has done their homework on detective work. T...

tyleroakleyfan: thank you for writing this story I loved it. it was great I enjoyed every minute of it I couldn't stop reading you did a fantastic job. Thanks for killing ron he was starting to piss me off. he was being a dick. I love that you made it a gay love story its about time someone did. love it great job.

Tiffany Thomson: This story is not something I would normally pick up and read but I'm so glad I did, I wasn't able to put it down and my husband was yelling at me at 3am to put it down and go to bed (just waited for him to doze back off before picking it back up) I really hope Natalie brings out another book eit...

M. Drewery: I did think I would be reading just another Atlantis archaeological adventure story when I came across this book. However I think it's fresh and very different to other approaches to the same historical mystery. The first chapter drew me in brilliantly. I'm not great at spotting technical writing...

Warchief: The biggest problem with the Harry Potter series is that it's all from his point of view. So we never really get to see or understand events from other peoples perspective. I think that they would be more than a few people that want to know what happened at Hogwarts during that last year.As far a...

Darren Powell: Very nice read. Lots of surprising treats from: Schrodinger’s cat and dervish dance forms; to sensei masters and brownian motion. I wasn't expecting this, so it was a pleasant discovery.Also liked the 'cross-over' events connecting one character's/or group's journey to another. I like how that wa...

John Smith: This is what Sci Fi is all about. Reads like early Heinlein. In the style of Space Cadets. No esoteric problems..but good ol blaster and space action with a host of relatable characters

Ali Albazaz: I started reading "Caged" few hours ago and I'm on chapter 7 now. Caged is definitely one of the most addictive stories I've ever read. Thank you so much for writing this novel.

Felisa Yoder Osburn: I really enjoyed the story. Civil War stories are some of my favorites and the intertwining of the past with current times was wonderful. I look forward to reading the next stories.

ga1984: I really enjoyed it! Characters were deep and plot was pretty complex. A bit on the violent side but it doesnt detract from the story. Very dark but situations make sense. Ends kinda abruptly and later chapters will need some editing work. I'm assuming there's more in the works?
