*Lies*

Angela wishes she could tell Jack it doesn't bother her that his life could be in danger; that he could die, when he keeps helping Booth and Brennan on their cases.

She can’t though, because it would be a lie and she doesn't like lying to her husband. After nearly losing him when the Gravedigger had trapped him in a car, she wants him to be more careful.

Though Angela never tells Jack that she’s afraid of losing him, she worries that it shows on her face. Therefore, she forces herself to pretend that she doesn't mind when Jack gets involved in any new cases Booth and Brennan are working on.

She won’t tell him how scared she gets that one day someone else will try to hurt him, or use him as leverage against her, Booth or Brennan. It won’t help her fears and it would only make him sad.

Though she hates it, Angela lies and forces a smile on her face, even as she keeps a close eye on her husband. He’s the best part of her life and she will be damned a million times over before she lets anyone or anything hurt her husband again.

The only problem is she hates having to tell her husband lies every day, because she never wants to take the happy spark out of his eyes as he helps their best friends catch murderers.

The end.

Jennifer Kane Martin: I am a high school teacher, and the dialogue and inner thoughts are PERFECT. However, the lack of capitalization, punctuation, and the typos are distracting. Don't let these get in the way of a potentially good story.
