The Open Doors

I do not own any thing originating from Bones!

Chapter 1

Brennan lay tightly pulled into Booth's arms as he comforted her. She felt serge of emotions spreading throughout her body over the death of her intern and the fact she was laying in Booth's arms in his bed. She started to gain control back over her emotions as she heard him talking to her softly. She looked at him as she lifted her head off his chest making him look into her eyes. She finally realized what others were talking about when they spoke of being able to see the soul and feelings of another in their eyes. Slowly the two closed the distance before their lips connected. The moment they touched their damns broke and they could not hold back their feelings for each other anymore. The two rolled so he was laying on top of her as they started adding more heat and passion to the kiss.

"Bones…." Booth breathed as he stopped kissing her for a moment to look into her eyes. "Is this…..? You really want to open this door?" He asked making her look at him for a moment before giving a nod.

"Yes. I think we should try. I don't want to have regrets anymore." She said making him give a small smile before he continued his assault on her body stopping only once more.

"Bones. I….I love you." He said making her look at him before giving a smile.

"I feel something that I can only explain as what you call love. I….I love you, Booth." She said before the two completely let themselves become lost in the other until early the next morning.

Booth opened his eyes as the sun began to shine into the window. He looked at what was laying on him only to have flashbacks of their night together fire off in his mind causing a smile to spread across his face. He wrapped his arm tighter around her and kissed the top of her head as she started to wake up. Slowly she opened her eyes and looked up at Booth looking at her with a small smile. He watched as she looked up at him for a moment before a small smile spread across her face as well.

"Good morning, Bones." He said making her smirk before she lifted her head and looked around.

"What time is it, Booth?" She asked making him turn to look at the alarm clock next to the bed.

"It's 8:30." He said looking back at her as she jumped to look at the clock across him. "What's wrong?"

"I'm late for work." She said looking down at him as she leaned on her elbow as his phone rang on the nightstand beside the bed. He reached over and grabbed it, answering without looking at the caller id.

"Booth." He answered.

"Booth-" Booth put his hand over her mouth to stop her from talking as he listened to the person on the phone.

"Yeah, I'll take a ride by her place and uh…. I'll see if she's there. You know she probably just over slept, Cam." He said and watched Brennan's eyes go wide with realization. He hung up and looked at the woman who was mostly on top of him.

"Cam?"

"Yeah, apparently they've been trying to get a hold of you for two hours now." He smirked as she rolled off him and onto the mattress with a sigh. Booth looked at her before rolling up onto his elbow to look down at her. "What's wrong?"

"Nothing Booth."

"Bones, I want you to be real careful. Broadsky's still out there and until I take him down, you need to be careful." He said making her look at him a minute before nodding.

"Although I have capabilities to take care of myself, I will be more cautious until you capture Broadsky." She said softly as she looked up at him remembering what they had done the night before.

"Bones?" He said looking down at her. "You know…. my feelings…." He trailed off as she nodded, for the first time she knew what he was trying to say to her without actually saying it.

"I know Booth. With what happened to Vincent….." She trailed off as her emotions started coming to the surface.

"Life is only so long."

"Exactly, and I don't want to have any regrets years down the road like I have had in the last several months."

"Then you really do want to try? You're sure you want to really open this door now?" He asked. Even though she had said, she did the night before he had to ask again to make sure. He looked down at her as she looked back with her blue eyes and nodded.

"I do. I was afraid of hurting you and…"

"You were afraid of getting hurt." She nodded. "I won't hurt you and I know you wouldn't hurt me." He said softly as she smiled and nodded. The two sat looking at each other before they heard her phone from the other room.

"That's probably the lab calling." She said looking towards the cracked door. "We should get going."

"Yeah." He said before he glanced away then back thinking. "We should probably keep us quiet for now."

"FBI rules." She said and watched him nod.

"Yeah, I don't want them splitting us up and all." She nodded with a small smile. "We'll go one day at a time." She gave another nod as her phone went off again moments before his rang again. He leaned down to give her a quick kiss as he opened the phone and answered it. Brennan climbed from the bed and started getting dressed in the clothes she was wearing the night before while Booth hung up and started getting ready for the day before he took her to her place to change, then dropped her at the lab before he went to work for the day.

A month later, they were walking back to the SUV after seeing Angela and Hodgins' baby. She was listening to him reassure her that the baby was fine and that they were all happy. That having a baby was a great thing. She stopped walking making him look at her confused. She watched him wondering what to say, how to say it before she took a breath and decided to just say it. They had been together secretly for the last month and she knew that her feelings only grew with the more time she allowed herself to be with him.

"What is it Bones?" He asked her.

"I….I'm pregnant." She said with a little smirk waiting to see his reaction. She watched as he looked at her shocked. "You're the father, Booth." She added and watched for a moment more as a small smile started to grow across his face.

"Really?" He asked, watching her nod, only making his smile grow. He quickly took a step closer to her and kissed her pulling back to look into her blue eyes that were searching his brown ones.

"You're happy about this?" She asked.

"Yeah, yeah I am. Aren't you?" He asked slightly worried but all worry was washed away as she smiled up at him and nodded.

"I am. Very much, but… the FBI…." She said as worry started to flow through her now.

"Don't worry about the FBI. We'll figure something out." He paused as his smile was plastered on his face again. "We're going to have a baby." He said with a kiss making her smile return and all worry disperse again. "Come on let's get home." He took her hand and they walked to the car hand in hand.

Brennan sat with Angela in the living room of her and Hodgins' house talking three weeks after the baby was born. Brennan had taken off from work early to check in on Angela and the baby boy everyone called her nephew. Brennan smiled as she looked down at the baby in her arms, sound asleep, cuddled up to her. Brennan looked at Angela who was watching her as they spoke.

"So how are things with you and Booth? Is it awkward working with him after you crawled into bed with him?" Brennan looked at her best friend, her sister of sorts and smiled shaking her head. "You didn't."

"Didn't what?" Brennan asked confused.

"You and Booth have been sleeping together since?" she asked and watched as Brennan's mouth opened to respond but nothing came out. "Spill it. What have you and agent studly been doing, Bren? She asked as Brennan closed her mouth and thought for a minute before a smile plastered on her face. "You can't deny it. You've been sleeping together."

"Yes. We have been having sex since then. We have also started a quiet relationship so as not to get into trouble with anyone. And we are working things out since I found out I was pregnant." Angela looked at her excited but held back the urge to squeal in happiness.

"Oh. My. God. Bren, you're pregnant? With Booth's baby?" She asked not knowing what exactly to say as a million things rushed through her mind.

"Yes I'm pregnant and it's definitely Booth's." Brennan smiled as she saw Angela try to calm herself. "We were walking back to the car after Michael was born and I told him. He was very happy to hear it." Brennan smiled

"He's been wanting to be with you for years. Now he has you and you're starting a family. Of course, he was really happy. Now, tell me everything. Is he amazing? I bet he's amazing in bed." Angela said with a smile making Brennan grin unconsciously.

"Who's amazing in bed?" They heard from the doorway making both women look to see Hodgins walk in confused. "Should I just…? Yeah, you know what; I'll just go get something to drink." He said backing out of the room.

"Ange you can't say anything. We are working things out so he won't get into trouble and we won't have any problems."

"You're going to have to tell people at some point, Sweetie. This isn't something you can really hid for long. I mean you are at most. What? Almost two months along?" Brennan nodded. "I'll keep my mouth shut, but you guys need to tell sooner or later."

"I know, Ange. Just not right now." Angela nodded. "I better start heading home." Brennan said as she stood up and handed the sleeping baby back to Angela.

"Well, our kids can be playmates and get each other into trouble."

"Kids?" They heard making both women's heads spin to look at Hodgins who stood shocked. "you're going to have a kid?" He asked as Brennan looked at Angela who looked at her then back at her husband.

"Hodgins…" Angela said not knowing what to say.

"I am thinking about it again." Brennan said as he leaned against the doorframe and shook his head.

"You're already pregnant." He said making Brennan and Angela look at each other.

"You might as well tell him. He's not going to stop until he finds out." Angela sighed as Brennan looked from her friend back to Hodgins before nodding. "Hodgins you have to stay quiet about this. No one can know yet." Angela told her husband.

"So who is it?" He asked looking at Brennan as she took a breath.

"Booth." She said simply and saw his jaw drop. "The FBI has rules that agents are not allowed to fraternize with other agents and consultants. If they find out…"

"My mouth is shut. I won't say a word." He smiled as Brennan nodded and Kissed Angela's cheek.

"I have to get going; Booth's picking up Parker for the weekend. I'll see you later." She said before she turned and left the house leaving Angela to look at her husband who was wearing a big smile across his face.

"You know if they have a girl…" He started making Angela look at him to stop him.

"Remember you can't say anything. If this gets out before they have a plan then the FBI will assign a new agent to the lab and maybe even fire Booth."

"I know Angie. I have no desire to deal with another FBI agent, I'll stay quiet." He smiled as he walked over to take the baby from her and kiss her.
