Prompt: Brennan and Angela, after they've been told of Booth's death.

Complications

“I’m sorry,” said the doctor.  The two words tightened the vice in Brennan’s stomach.  “Agent Booth died on the operating table.”

Angela gasped and covered her mouth, her other hand reaching for Brennan’s as Hodgins stepped in behind her. 

“What?  No.”  Brennan shook her head, hair whipping around her face.  “He was stable.”

“There were surgical complications.”

“I want to see him.”  The words came out in a whisper.  “Now,” she said, her voice a bit stronger. 

“Unfortunately, only family is allowed inside.”

Family.  Parker.  She coughed, gagging.  How could she face him, knowing he was fatherless because of her?

A/N:  Many thanks to the folks who let me know which ficlets they'd like to see expanded.  I truly appreciate your taking the time to do that.  I asked, and you answered.  Thank you, my friends!  There's no time limit, so if anyone else would like to share their thoughts with me, please feel free to do so.
