It has been six months since Buffy has met her family for the first time. Buffy is on her way downstairs when she hears a knock at the door and Phoebe yelling “ I got it.” As she continued her way downstairs she heard a mans voice that she recognized. His name was Seeley Booth and he was Buffy’s old partner in the F.B.I. and her ex-boyfriend, who was still as hot as ever, and his partner Dr. Temperance Brennan. When she entered the room they looked at her in shock and said at the same time “Paige! What are you doing here.”
“I live here what are you doing here?!” she responded.
“They’re here because there was a murder and……….wait how do you know them anyway.” Phoebe asked.
“Well that’s a long story.” Buffy said with the a smirk starting to rise on her face.
Four and a half years ago
Buffy was walking down the street when she saw two people starting to run and a guy already running in front of them, so as usual she took off running to see what was wrong. When the man stopped running and pulled out a gun aiming it at one of the guys behind him she launched herself for the man who was about to be shot and pushed him out of the way after a bang from what she is guessing the gun and a then saw his partner getting the upper hand on the guy they were chasing and cuff him.
“Hey thanks for saving my life. I am special agent Daniel Marks, and you are?!”
“The names Paige Summers………but everyone calls me Buffy.” she said to him with a smile.
“Well thanks for the quick thinking if you wouldn’t have got Danny here out of the way he’d probably be a goner by now.” Seeley said as he came into view.
“Yeah well, it was nothing.” she said. When Buffy finally got a good look at the man she froze. “Angel?!” she said with awe. The two men look at each other as the man she thought was Angel spoke. “No, I’m special agent Seeley Booth.”
“Oh…….sorry you just look A LOT like someone I used to know.” she said still in freaked out by how much he looked like Angel.
“No need to apologize, listen thanks again for the help we got it from here.” The two men then turned around picked the man that they were chasing off the ground and left the alley as Buffy did the same.
The next day
“Agent Booth………Agent Marks…..I’d like you to meet, our newest agent, Special Agent Summers. She will be following alongside you both.” Director Kirby said this and left.
“You.” Danny said with a little bit of awe in his voice.
“Yes, me.” She responded.
“You’re an Agent?! How come you didn’t say anything yesterday?!” Booth asked quizzically.
“I didn’t think it was important.” she said with a smile.
A Year later
Buffy and Booth were standing in the FBI headquarters waiting for Danny to get there when a letter came in for Buffy. On it was written “ATTN: SPECIAL AGENT SUMMERS” when she opened it she read:
“The Heart is next.”
When she handed it to Booth she realized what it meant and after she said “Oh no, Danny.” she was off and running out the door. Even though Booth tried to stop her she was a lot faster than him. Booth knew then that Howard Epps the newest crazy they were trying to put in jail was after Danny, and since he knew that they were together and knew it had to be true or at least that is what he thought. When Buffy got out of the building she was on her way to get on to her motorcycle when she was sprayed in the face by an unknown substance that even with the extra slayer advantage she was knock out unconscious almost immediately. When she woke up she was still dazed and confused. Her hands were bound behind her back and her feet were tied to the legs of the chair.
“Oh so she finally awakes.” Epps said.
“Epps….. You son of a bitch where’s Danny.”
“What no ‘you’re not going to get away with this comment‘.”
“I’m sorry but I’m not feeling very stereotypical right now.”
A couple of hours later Epps pulled out her gun from where he had placed it when she was unconscious and aimed it at her.
“Isn’t this ironic an Agent dying by her own gun.” he said as he lifted it in the air and aimed it at her.
When the click happened her eyes shut and then ‘BANG’ the gun went off, she heard a loud thud, opened her eyes only to see Danny on the floor not moving.
“DANNY!” she yelled and saw Booth as he tackled Epps down to the ground and cuffed him.
When Booth finally untied her from the chair she went to Danny on the floor and turned him over to see that the bullet had hit him right in the heart and he was dead.
“Danny, Danny please you can’t die, please I love you, Danny!” she said with tear filled eyes and Booth pulled her into his arms trying to calm her down because even though he knew about her and Danny no one else did and could never know because it was against the rules for two agents to be together.
“Ok well that is all there is to tell about my life then.” Buffy said quickly changing the subject before she slipped and told them the part of her life when she was dating Booth.
“Wait a minute what happen the last six months that you were there.”
“Nothing!” Buffy and Booth both said at the same time.
“Ok so that’s not suspicious in the least…… what really happened?” Piper asked eyeing both Buffy and Booth.
“Nothing…… a couple of cases here and there…..normal FBI thing.” Buffy said.
“Yeah a couple of murders solved, Paige got engaged and broke off the wedding, quit the FBI and left to Seattle….you know your everyday normal things.” Booth said.
When he was done they all looked at Buffy who had this shocked and dismayed look on her face like ‘I can’t believe you just did that’ staring straight at Booth.
“You were engaged?!” Piper and Phoebe asked.
“Yeah but that was a long time ago.”
“Oh no you not getting away that easily who was he and why didn’t you get married?” Phoebe asked.
“Well………….. His name was Johnny.… Johnny Storm.”
Three Years ago
“Hey Sue.” Paige said.
“Hey Paige, what’s up.” Sue asked.
“Just looking for Johnny….is he here?”
“Yeah I think he’s in his room.”
“Ok thanks.” Paige said as her and Sue started to walked to Johnny’s room.
When they were approaching the room they could hear weird sounds coming from the room. When they opened the door there was Johnny with some other girl in bed.
“You son of a bitch!” Paige said as Johnny and the girl scurried to get their clothes and get covered up.
“Who the hell are you?” the girl asked.
“I was his fiancé but not anymore.” she took the ring off her finger and threw it at Johnny. “The wedding is OFF!” she turned around and almost crashed into Sue who was standing behind her still in shock.
“He cheated on you……what an ass.” Piper said.
“Yeah well….whatever the past is the past so lets please drop this subject. Ok so……..why exactly are you guys here, Booth?!” Buffy said.
“Well Paige, we are here because there was a murder up the street and we wanted to know if any of you have seen or heard anything suspicious in the past couple of days.” Booth said.
“I haven’t” Phoebe said.
“Neither have I.” Piper continued.
“Paige what about you.” Bones added.
“Well not that I……….” before she finished her phone started ringing. When she looked at it the caller id said that it was Sydney Bristow, her best friend and partner at the C.I.A. and SD-6. “excuse me for a sec.” she said as she got up to take the call.
“Paige!” Sydney said as soon as she answered the phone. “Something happened and Nikki’s dead……….they found her yesterday near your house.”
“Holy shit. Who is heading the case.”
“The F.B.I. is heading the investigation. Why?!” Syd asked confused.
“No wonder……..because their here, Syd. I’ve got to go I’ll talk to you later.”
“Ok Paige tell me how it goes later.”
“Ok bye.” Buffy said as she hung up her phone, put it away and went back to where everyone was.”
“So Paige have you seen anything out of the ordinary?” Booth asked her again.
“No I haven’t seen anything……..but what was the victim’s name?” she asked.
“Her name was Nicole Navarro.” Bones said.
“Oh damn.” Buffy said.
“Did you know her?!” Booth asked.
“Yeah she worked with me at Credit Dauphin.”
“Oh I’m sorry to hear that…… when was the last time you spoke with her?”
“I saw her at work about a week ago.”
“Ok do you know anything else that might help us with the case, Paige.”
“No, sorry I wish I did. But I do know one thing if you need my help with any part of this case you know where to find me.”
