Bubbly


“So you’re seeing two guys, huh?”

“Yes,” she says, setting down her water glass. “One for intellectual stimulation and one for”—she pauses, a feeling of guardedness sneaking over her as Booth’s eyebrows shoot up—“physical stimulation.”

“Hm. Brains and heart,” he replies, nodding. “You know, Bones, sometimes you can find both in one person.”

“I am aware of that.” She spears a lettuce leaf. “But since I haven’t yet found someone who fills both needs, I won’t put my life on hold until I do.”

“Maybe you’re looking in the wrong places.” Booth’s eyes glitter in the early autumn sunshine warming the diner, and his lips tilt in an enigmatic smile that tells her she is missing some important nuance.

An effervescent sensation rises in her stomach; she narrows her eyes against it and stares at her partner, frowning.

“There something you want to say?” Leaning back, he slides an arm over the top of the booth, watching her.

She wonders suddenly what he sees in her face. “If I wanted to say something, I would say it.” The tartness of the words surprises her, but Booth’s smile merely widens.

“Let’s split one of those giant chocolate chip cookies.”

A/N: Only a couple hours till The Dark Knight! :D

"an effervescent sensation" I had to laugh at that; that's exactly how Brennan would have put it. Great job.

Oh, I want to see The Dark Knight sooo bad. Was it good? (but no spoilies, please!)

*g* I'm glad that sounded like her to you. Thank you!

I haven't watched Dark Knight yet; we're going to a 7:30 show. But I have heard it is awesome and dark. I seriously can't wait to see it.

This was great fun. I especially liked...“Maybe you’re looking in the wrong places.” Booth’s eyes glitter in the early autumn sunshine warming the diner, and his lips tilt in an enigmatic smile that tells her she is missing some important nuance....so Booth!

I hope you enjoy the movie!

“Yes,” she says, setting down her water glass. “One for intellectual stimulation and one for”—she pauses, a feeling of guardedness sneaking over her as Booth’s eyebrows shoot up—“physical stimulation.”

That's exactly the same reason I thought she was seeing two guys as well after I read the sides. Glad someone else thinks that way too :)

It seems Brennan-like. :) We'll have to see how it all plays out. I kinda hope it isn't something that's wrapped up as quickly as the Sully arc was.

I think it's going to be wrapped up sooner. I'm fairly certain the guys are gone by the end of the episode.

I love the way she almost knows what Booth is getting at, but shies away. And Booth is bothered by it, I think he's convinced that eventually she'll see the light.

Have fun at the movie. I'm going on Tuesday to see it on IMAX.

Love this (no surprise :-) )

I love that Booth is already far, far, ahead of her RE: destination, and that she's still in the Land of Denial. It's such fun to watch them struggle toward the light, together.

I hope this new season will be their best, to date.

This totally embodies the relationship between Booth and Brennan :)

Ahh this one tears me up! Part of me wants to punch brennan LOL Booth is wonderful in this, so IC.

*“If I wanted to say something, I would say it.” The tartness of the words surprises her, but Booth’s smile merely widens.*

LOVE this - she is such a lying liar {!} but I don't think she even realises it!

“There something you want to say?” Leaning back, he slides an arm over the top of the booth, watching her.

She wonders suddenly what he sees in her face. “If I wanted to say something, I would say it.” The tartness of the words surprises her, but Booth’s smile merely widens.


Oh, that is SO them! Can just see it. This was scrummy - like the cookie they're going to share :) I really hope Booth reacts in this way to her men ;)

Love this push and pull between guarded tongues and inviting reckless honesty. Well done!

Wonderful! Such a fun one! :) I love Booth's reaction to her two guys; so calm and hinting subtly at their future :)
It would be awesome to see it go this way on screen(*crosses fingers*)!
