Oh, thank you!
And here is a little present for you all.
The Party 2
When they arrived at the location, Frank stood at the entrance to greed all of his guest personally. He saw Jacob and smiled.
“Jake, nice to have you here. And who is this wonderful woman?” he asked, because Rachel was looking if there was any danger. Even if she was not on duty she just couldn’t help herself. When she finally looked at the FBI director he said: “Agent Young! You look good! Welcome to my party.” He said surprised.
“Thank you, Sir.” She said and Hood quickly led her inside.
From the first moment on Rachel did not feel good in this surrounding and especially not in her role as Jacobs company. When he offered to get something to drink for both of them she agreed and watched him disappear in the crowd.
She turned around. A good looking man made his way to her.
“Seeley Booth! What are you doing here?” she said and smiled.
He drew a face: “I’m only here, because Dr. Brennan was invited.” He said and pointed to a slender brunette woman, who was talking to some people.
Knowing Booth, Rachel smiled: “You begged her to bring you along.”
“Oh, yes.” He confessed: “And besides, she needs me. She can’t drive as good as I, and her social competence is very limited.”
“I know what you mean.”
“Yeah, and please don’t tell me you got an invitation.”
“No, I’m here with Dr. Hood. He is of to get us a drink.”
“Why is it that our beloved director Fuller, invites a lot of Doctors and so on but not his own special Agents?” Booth asked a bit annoyed.
“Well… maybe because he knows, who those Doctors would bring.” Frank said. He had overheard the discussion.
“Oh… good evening, and happy birthday, Sir.” Booth said a bit sheepishly.
“Have fun, Booth.” The director said ant went to some important looking people.
Jacob went to the bar, where a lot of people were waiting for their drinks. He turned around to check on Rachel and saw her talking with a good looking man. That was not good. He pushed himself through the crowd to get the drinks faster.
It only took some more minutes for him to get what he wanted and he was on his way back.
“Rachel, who is your friend?” he asked handing her the glass of Champaign.
“Oh… that’s Special Agent Seeley Booth. Booth this is Dr. Jacob Hood.”
Booth was quick and got Dr. Brennan who immediately started a conversation with Jacob.
Director Fuller had a speech and after that the band started with the dance music. Booth took Brennan to the dancing floor.
“I like him.” Jacob said.
Rachel nodded: “And I did not understand a single word she said.”
“I’m sorry Rachel. Would you like to dance?”
She hesitated: “No.”
“Why not? Come on Rachel, please.”
“Ok. But just one dance”
They ended up dancing four dances. Jacob refused to let Rachel go after the first, but then she started complaining about her hurting feet.
“I’m not a so bad dancer.” Jacob said, as they set outside on a balcony and Rachel rubbed her feed.
“No, you are not. But those shoes… you never go dancing in new shoes.”
He chuckled: “Sorry I thought you would like them.”
“Oh they are wonderful… how did you know my size anyway?”
“I spied on you.” He said with a grin: “Always when you left the room I tried to find out your dress size or shoe size.”
“So you planed on taking me all along.”
“And why didn’t you want to take Sandy? I mean, you always called her.”
Now he laughed. “Sandy runs a boutique here. I had to call her and tell what size you wear, she helped me to pick out a dress and shoes. How should I have done that all by myself, while I wasn’t even here. I send her a photo and she suggested red. She really has an eye for colors though.”
Rachel shook her head. She did not believe what he was saying.
“And why didn’t you just ask me to come with you instead of appearing at my door and threaten to kidnap me?”
“That would’ve been no fun.” He grinned, but being Jacob he missed the annoyed and angry undertone.
Rachel took her shoes and left.
