Moonlight slants through partially closed blinds, striping Booth's body with light and shadow. Temperance props her head on her hand and waits. With the first snore, she inches closer.

Her chest constricts at the sight of his left hand, which rests palm-up on his pillow, fingers half-curled. The position makes him look vulnerable—a word she doesn't associate with him.

Since her parents disappeared when she was fifteen, she has memories of them from before that. Though they weren't really Matthew and Christine Brennan, surely not everything about their life, her life, was a lie. Sometimes she sifts through the memories, separating lies from truth.

The way her father looked at her mother. Temperance remembers, and wonders.

Sometimes she catches a similar expression on Booth's face.

“Stop looking at me like that. I hate it,” she whispers. “I don't want to look at you like that, either. I'm...scared...maybe I already do. What happens when you leave, Booth?”

Anger compels her to move. But his sleep-roughened voice beckons her. “Bones? What're you doing?”

Booth reaches out and tugs her back against him. As his warm breath tickles her neck, Temperance wonders how long he'd been awake.


*hugs it preciously*

Aww - Brennan looking Booth sleep... Can't they hire you as a writer for the show? Please?

LOL You're way too nice. Thank you. *hugs*

Lerdo(BB + insignificant things) = touching, nice, awsome...

::will 'aaawwwww' for a little while::

isaakfreak/pinktealeaves + her awesome icon = a smile on my face

Thanks!

Love, love, love, your drabbles.

so very much in character; hoping they will be in canon within a year or so....

Aww, thank you. :)

From your lips to the writers' ears. ;)

That vulnerability she's so afraid of - someone should tell her that it's not such a bad thing. Not with the right person. Beautiful, as per always.

*g* Hopefully being with Booth will help her understand that. And you are so right about it not being a bad thing.

listening to soft xmas music and reading your art , it's dreamy and wonderful.

Aw, thanks. You're being way too generous, but thank you all the same. I am really happy you enjoyed this. Booth and Brennan rock my world. ;)

Awww. Perfect. So nice.

Those first lines just drew me into this. Fabulous work!

Thanks for letting me know what stood out for you; I appreciate it. :) Glad you liked this.

So beautifully written. Lovely. Simply lovely.


Thank you for your lovely feedback.

Got me with the palm up/vulnerable image :sigh: Thanks for a nice little image to carry around.

Thank you for commenting. If only everyone had a little Booth they could carry around. *g*

*loved*
Kind of like when she asked if he was going to betray her. Her parents really did a number on her...
Something really sweet about how he just pulled her right back, though.

That's a very cool connection you made!

Booth won't let her go without a fight, thankfully. :)

Thanks for reading and feeding, as always.

Everytime you write something.. here I am, reading
And here I am, loving! :D :D
Lovely drabbles ;)

That is so sweet of you to say, Sara. Thank you. *hugs*

goodness. all BB goodness, like always. i've been following the series on fanfiction (i haven't been on LJ that long because of finals, and well...i tend to get a little carried away when i'm at LJ). i just want to say that you'd instantly win the Bones FF Awards (well, i'd nominate you and i'm sure that a lot of people will agree, so...)

good job as always. *Booth charm smile w/ Parker wave* Merry Christmas!

*grins* I can definitely see how LJ could distract you at a time when other things in your life need maximum focus. In any case, I'm happy knowing you've been reading my little drabbles. They've kept me writing when other things have taken up most of my energy.

That right there is like a present for me. :) Thank you; you are way too kind. I'm tickled thinking that anyone would even nominate me for a fic award. The very notion is smile-inducing. As with everything else in life, I believe that there's always someone out there who does whatever you do better than you, someone who doesn't do it quite as well as you, and yet, there is no one out there who does it in exactly the same way you do. ;)

*smiles and waves back* Happy Holidays to you, too! I hope this season finds you relaxing with friends and family.

Booth reaches out and tugs her back against him.

oh, thanks for that image.

You're welcome. :) Glad that small image stuck with you.

Thanks, Foxy. *smiles and waves*
