Fandom: Bones
Title: Lies
Characters: Jack Hodgins and Angela Montenegro
Pairing: Jack/Angela
Rating/Warnings: PG-13. Canon, Het, Minor Language.

A/N: Thanks to Judy for betaing and to anyone who reads and reviews.
Disclaimer: I don’t own the show Bones or the characters Jack and Angela. I don’t claim to own them and make no profit from writing this story.
Words: 235 words without title and ending.


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.

LesAnne: I've never come across a plot like this, and I like its originality. At first, the title gave me the impression that the story is about friends making bets, but I've been proven wrong. I like the personality of the female main character, how evident her strengths and weaknesses are. She's become ...

Animeviewer: It is one of the best stories I've ever read.

LouiseJ2: I enjoyed the detail you went into with regards to the case. It made the UNSUB appear believable. The crisis in the middle of the story was my favorite part, very dramatic but not over the top. I feel like sometimes pairings can be overdone but I liked that some of the relationships were a little...

Fashakin Michael: I have looked for the right word to describe this piece of Art but I concluded with "Wow!" Every chapter held me glue till the last and the book is just the reflection of our environment with its reaction.

Alex Rushmer: Although I don't know the story of the Phantom of the Opera, I really enjoyed this story. The writing was very evocative, and it really put a picture of time and setting in my mind. The voice of the story really added to the character development. The idea of the time travelling -- or whatever re...

Jenn Deering: This is a go-to story for when you're needing a little happiness in your life. It's well-crafted, and characters are true to their show-selves. The pace is right, there are minimal grammatical errors, and the plot is fresh.

Jade Jez: What a wonderful, immersive book from Eliott McKay. It starts with an air of mystery, introducing main character Michaela, the clumsy teenager. From there, it whisks you off your feet and dumps you into a beautifully written world where you can almost smell and hear everything happening. I go...

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that.
