but that moment. she spoke (with her mouth but from the heart) and thinks she was romantic and did the right thing and now he’s crying and for a moment there she’s afraid she did something wrong
And she didn’t want to do anything wrong, she wants to give him the best day she wants to say the right thing she’s kept inside her for such a long time
And she asks - she’s not that confidant in her social skills - if she did that wrong and he just nods his head, tear filled eyes, the softest “No.” because he literally doesn’t have words.
He can’t believe she knew in her own way since the beginning.
He can’t believe his life keeps changing for the better from the moment he met her. From the moment he kissed her. From the moment they first made love. From the moment she said she was pregnant. From the moment she proposed with beef jerky. From the moment she tells him how he changed her life.
He changed her life for the better and she confirmed it, just like his is so better with her in it.
And listening her saying that in front of those that love them the most, in the moment the rest of their lives begins?
He can’t even believe.
He can’t even believe this is true.
He can’t even believe she loves him and that he’s marrying her.
He can’t believe they’re family
He can’t believe this new life.
He can’t believe he’s having the next 30, 40, 50 years with her.
And she’s proving to him multiple times.
Booth: I worked really, really hard on my vows, but you know now that we’re here, look… Hey, do you remember the last time that we were here standing right around in this spot? It was right in the beginning, before we really knew each other. I was trying to get away from you because you were irritating me and you chased me down and you caught up to me. I said to you, “Listen, I just have to get all my ducks in a row” and then you said to me…
Brennan: I can be a duck!
Booth: Yeah, we have been chasing each other for a long time. Been chasing each other through wars and serial killers and ghosts and snakes. And you know chasing you has been the smartest thing that I have ever done in my life. And being chased by you has been my greatest joy. But now we don’t have to chase each other anymore because we caught each other.
Brennan: When Hodgins and I were buried alive, we each wrote a message to someone we loved in case our bodies were ever found. Hodgins wrote to Angela and I wrote to you. “Dear Agent Booth, you are a confusing man. You are irrational, and impulsive, superstitious, and exasperating. You believe in ghosts and angels and maybe even Santa Claus. And because of you I’ve started to see the universe differently. How is it possible that simply looking into your fine face gives me so much joy? Why does it make me so happy that every time I try to sneak a peak at you, you’re already looking at me? Like you, it makes no sense. And like you, it feels right. If I ever get out of here, I will find a time and a place to tell you that you make my life messy and confusing. And unfocused and irrational and wonderful.” This is that time. This is that place.
