Series: PD 18/?
Disclamier: I don't own the people, places, or things you already know.
People: Booth, Bones, Rebecca, Cam, Jack, Angela, and a blast from the past.
Sumarry: Booths phone rings bring him the call no parent wants to hear. What is it? What appends after it? Please read to find out.
"Seeley, have you heard from Parker?" Rebecca begged when he answered her call.
"No, is something wrong?" His instincts kicking to high alert.
"Drew and I sat him down last night to let him know that at the end of the month we would be moving to London." She gasped out between tears.
"When was the last time you saw him?" He asked rushing to his SUV and turning the lights on.
"At School, Drew and I both dropped him off this morning."
"Could he have left with a friend?"
"We called all his friends. They hadn't seen him since school."
"It's going on five now!"
"I know we called all his team mates and friends first. When he wasn't there we called you."
She just got the words out before breaking down in tears again.
"Take a deep breath! In and out nice and easy. Today isn't his day at the lab unless it was changed. Was it changed?"
"He didn't say anything to me about it if it was. Do you think he might be there?"
She asked mentally smacking herself for not thinking to have called Brennan before now.
"I'm pulling in now. I'll run in and see if Max or Bones have seen him. If you find him let me know!" The line was dead as quickly as his turn into the lab had been.
"Booth, this is a work place. Why are you yelling?"
"Parker's not here is he?"
"Slow down. He's not here and the last time I spoke to him you were with me."
"I was hoping that I was wrong."
"Wrong about what? Isn't he with his mom?"
"No and she can't find him!"
"What happened?" Bones eyes darting around the room as she threw her lab coat in her office.
"Rebecca and Drew took the jobs. They told him last night about the move!"
"Whose moving?" Angela asked seeing the partners worked up.
"Drew and Rebecca both took jobs in London. They told Parker last night about the move." Booth replied.
"Would he go see your Grandfather?" Jack asked joining the group.
"I'm not sure." Booth spoke while mentally trying to run down places in his mind.
"Booth, I'll call Pops and dad. Why don't you go to your church and see if he's there."
"Sweetie, what can we do to help?" Angela asked as she and Jack changed their coats.
"Ang, can you go see if he's in the museum? Jack, why don't you try the parks around here?"
"Sure" came the combined answer.
"Where is everyone rushing off to?"Cam's words freezing everyone where they stood.
"Parker is missing! Booth I'll call you after I talk to dad." Bones replied while running into her office.
"Parker's a good kid! He's safe wherever he is!" Cam said as she walked him out the lab.
"If you hear..."
"I'll hold him where he is until you can get him." Cam assured him as he got into his SUV!
It was a short drive to the church. Only to find out Parker wasn't there and no one had seen him. Booth spent some time driving around the local parks.
"Booth" he quickly answered his phone.
"Dad and Pops haven't heard from him today." Bones words were followed by the sound of twigs breaking.
"Bones where are you?"
"I'm heading to your dads grave."
"Why would you waste your time there?"
"Booth, you made me promise to go to speak to you after you die. So I thought Parker might have shared the same belief in talking at someone's grave as you."
"He wouldn't be there! He knows I hated my dad! Why waste your time there? Have you tried the house? Or any other place that you can think of? He's been missing over six hours now. He could be hurt or worse and you chose to go to the last place that anyone would ever look for him!"
"I tried the house first then came here. Booth, I'm sorry but, I thought he might have been here. I'll head out to the skating areas around town. I'm sorry." He didn't let himself think of the hurt in her voice as he hung up on her mid sorry.
After taking a few deep breaths Bones pressed on to Booths fathers grave. She really had no reason to be here. She didn't believe in after life's or a higher power like Booth but, she knew there was a reason she felt pulled here.
"What are the odds?"
"I'm not sure what odds you mean. Therefor I don't know what they would be." Bones replied without looking at the man who had spoke as she passed him.
"I'm not sure you remember me. It's been many years. You and Seeley use to come by each week." The man said lightly touching her arm to stop her.
"You are the man who knows what we want to eat with out us telling you?"
"That would be Seeley's words but true none the less."
"It's nice to see you and I'll tell Booth I saw you but, I am in a hurry." Her words following her as she turned to walk away.
"To find Parker?" He asked.
"Yes, how did you know? Have you seen him?" Once again her words whipping around as she turned back to him.
"As a matter of fact I have. That would be the odds I was talking about a minute ago." In spite of himself he had to laugh at the lost look on her face.
"I don't understand what you mean. Did you see which way Parker was? His family and I all miss him!"
"Why don't you include yourself in his family? I know he includes you in his. In answer to your question yes I know where he went."
"Please tell me. It's important that we find him!"
"He's safe. I come by every year at this time to my mothers grave."
"You and Booth share the belief in talking to the dead's graves but, what about Parker?" She interrupted him asking.
"When I first got here tonight Parker was standing at a grave over there crying. When I asked him where Seeley or his mother was he didn't answer. But, when I asked him why he was here, he told me to yell at the man who messed up his life."
"The man who messed up his life? Who did that? And why would a dead person mess up his life?"
"I can't give you those answers. You will have to ask him. My point was he was here cold and hungry."
"Now I must find him! He must be hurt!" Bones mothering voice whispered.
"He's fine now,but he refuse to go home or call his dad. So I did the only thing I could think of."
A/N: I know bad spot to stop, but the last chapter will answer all those questions for you. I must say I'm sorry for the late post. Losing my Internet is never fun it's even less fun when your posting a story.
As I said one more chapter. But I would love to hear where you think Parker is, and why he was yelling at a grave. (I know this sometimes happens cause I have done it in my past. It helped me let go of some pain.)
Any and all Honest feedback is welcome! Thank you to the readers who have read, will read, and are reading this story!
