"Get down," Booth says, shoving her and reversing as fast as he can. But he knows it's already too late, so he braces for the impact. The world spins crazily as the blast tosses the car into the air as if it weighed no more than one of Parker’s toys. Even as the stench of burning rubber and the crunch of metal hit him, he bargains silently.

Let her live and I swear I’ll become the man You want me to be. Let her live and I’ll never take another life. Let her—

The car rights itself.

His ears ring, his body screams. “Bones.” Her stillness chills him. “Bones,” he repeats, the word a prayer, a plea, and a vow. As he kicks her door, she moves.

Relief is too small a word for what floods his aching body.

“Don’t move.” Booth launches himself through his window, ignoring the glass that lodges in his palms.

He would crawl through worse for her.

When she rests on the sidewalk beside him, she begins to argue. The blood marring her skin infuriates him; he argues back.

Even as they fight, he gives thanks…and wonders how he’ll uphold his side of the bargain.


I felt it!
The part that made my heart tight: His ears ring, his body screams. “Bones.” Her stillness chills him. “Bones,” he repeats, the word a prayer, a plea, and a vow.
I'm falling in love with your drabbles! Like I fell in love with your fanfic.. Amazing :D

*hugs you* Aw, thanks, Sara. :)

that was absolutely bautiful. i really loved that scene because it had so much underlying emotion in it.

those thoughts fit booths voice perfectly

Thank you. I'm glad you could "hear" Booth in this. :) And I agree; there was a lot to love about that scene.

So true; so true.

I downloaded that episode, and have seen it at least a dozen times. Each time he calls out, "Bones", I can hear the almost-panic, cry in his voice.

And the immediacy of the argument - both so damned glad each other is okay; neither one willing to admit the depth of their feelings for each other.

Brava!

Thanks, Makd. :)

Each time he calls out, "Bones", I can hear the almost-panic, cry in his voice.

Exactly. DB played it beautifully. I don't care what anyone else says; the man can act. That epi is very re-watchable.

neither one willing to admit the depth of their feelings for each other.

*nods* Again, exactly. :)

*hugs you*

Let her live and I swear I’ll become the man You want me to be. Let her live and I’ll never take another life. Let her-
I love this part. Poor Booth, so distress. He loves so much her that he would die if something was happening to her.

Perfect, as always.

Besos

I really do think it would break Booth if anything happened to Brennan.

Thanks for reading and feeding! *hugs*

Let her live and I swear I’ll become the man You want me to be. Let her live and I’ll never take another life. Let her—


Let her live and I will do whatever You ask.


That was the last part of the bargain.

just great!
its just real :D

I'm happy you thought this seemed real. Thank you.

Thank you, as always, Becc.

Wonderful. I love the way he bargains with G-d and his immediate fear that he won't be able to keep it.

There are the things we can actually do, and then there are the things we want to be able to do. They aren't always the same thing. ;)

Thank you for reading and commenting.

Perfect. Beautiful, I love it.

OMG I am falling in love with your drabbles. This is exactly what I picture running through Booth's brain during that episode. The emotion in his voice as he called out "Bones" Nearly made me cry, and you captured that perfectly. And I like the depth you added to their argument, how the are both so relieved the other is alive but can't show it, so they argue

Perfectly written :)


I'm glad you're enjoying my drabbles. Though I started out disliking drabbles, I slowly fell in love with them.

The way ED and DB played that scene was beautiful—so much left unsaid but hinted at. You could hear the panic in Booth's voice, and that really captured me.

Thanks for taking the time to read and comment on this; I appreciate it.

Wow. Have I told you how totally you rock?

Wow, reading your drabbles really makes me want to write a few of my own. I'm terrible at sticking with long fics but I could handle a few drabbles I think lol just need to find an idea somewhere, maybe go searching for a meme. or challenge.

Thanks for the terrific works of fiction, can't wait for thee next one and I hope things don't stay to crazy for you for to long.

Go for it. Write!

Thanks for your comments and your good wishes. I sincerely appreciate both. :) Life is an endless series of ups and downs; I suppose I'll just have to hang on through the latter.

Oh yes, Booth was thinking about Brennan all the time. And they argued only when they knew they were both ok. Love the part when he's praying for her. Let her live and I swear I’ll become the man You want me to be.
I'm in love with your new header too!
*lots of squeezy hugs to you* (=

*hugs you back* Thanks, sweetie. :)

Arguing is their way of verbalizing the things they don't think it's safe to say just yet. And I'm convinced Booth prays for Brennan—regardless of whether he's ready to admit it just yet.

Ah, that was perfect. Again. I understand too well. I was doing similar things. Even though I know Brennan can't even be that badly hurt, let alone killed, I still freak out. Whimpering and leaning forward and staring at the screen, willing her to move. It's AiaS all over again.

I think I have to admit this to someone - I totally have a thing for hurt!Brennan. I mean, even though I ABHORE those few seconds when she doesn't move, I love Brennan covered in blood or stitched up or smudged with dirt. She just has a way of making it attractive. Stop me if I'm wrong! Lol... I think it may have something to do with the fact that, if she's sitting there all stitched up or covered in blood, it means she's still alive. If it was just bruised and dead Brennan, I would be scarred for life and never talk again (you think I'm kidding... I think I must have some repressed memories behind this) I guess it's just a reminder of how tough she is and that's art of her charm.

Oh it's all a big cycle of Brennan! Okay, I recognise my need for sleep now.

*grins* I understand what you're saying.

As always, thanks for reading and commenting.

Loved it. Booth's so protective to Brennan even though most of the times she doesn't need protection - my heart melts.

He knows everything's okay when they start arguing. Arguing is them. :)

Yeah, Brennan can generally take care of herself, and Booth knows that. Still, he can't help worrying about her. :)

Thanks for reading and feeding!
