3. At the diner

They spend so much time talking—about cases and clues and criminals. But it's the perfect moments of silence that linger in Booth's memory each night as he folds his hands in prayer and asks for protection for the people he loves and the strength to do the right thing, no matter what the cost. The moments when they sit across from each other at the diner, surrounded by other people, and yet all he can see is her.

He wonders then if he'll ever tire of looking at her.

Those are the moments that he'd like to tuck inside his wallet and carry with him everywhere, like he does that picture of her when she was just a girl.

Words seem unnecessary then. Would only get in the way of what he really wants to say as she returns his gaze with that quiet smile that always makes him catch his breath... and reaffirms his faith in everything good, kind, and true in the world. He knows it's too much to hope that shy smile of hers is one she keeps just for him. Just like he knows she can't possibly realize he has a smile he saves for her alone.

And yet that doesn't keep him from wanting to reach across the table and trace the stubborn curve of her jaw with his battle-roughened fingers. Doesn't keep him from wanting to press his mouth to hers to see if she tastes like sun and sky and the open road he wants to travel someday when his work is done.

Maybe one day he will.

 


I teared up reading that. It was so beautiful!

*hugs you* I'm happy this moved you. Thanks for letting me know that.

That is so beautiful. ::sigh::

That was so heartwarming. Awwwwwwww!!

Thanks, Shauna. Booth and Brennan warm my heart. :)

Thankyou, that was beautiful.


There are no words.....no words *sniffle*

Loved this

Aw, thank you. :) I'm glad you were touched by this. They melt my heart.

Oh yes....the diner!! I, for one, would love to see them kiss in the diner.

and yes, yes, yes!! So clever of you to have Booth keep a copy of her youthful picture. (he's so clever with the photocopier.)

The diner is one of "their" places. :)

(he's so clever with the photocopier.)

*g* He is so toting a copy of that pic around with him.

Thanks for reading and feeding, my dear!

Wow.

*speechless*


*smiles* Thank you, Melissa.

Their times at the diner are some of my favorites, and you've done a great job of capturing what I hope Booth is thinking every time he takes a seat across from her.

Also, your new banner? Guh. Keep that up, and my next nickname will be "your little puddle of goo." ;)

Thanks! They're such good friends, and I feel like that comes across so beautifully whenever they're at the diner together. :) I'm glad you enjoyed my take on one of those moments.

*g* Ah, the hotness that is DB... ;)

I'm sorry I can't come up with anything more coherent or constructive than that, but I think this is my favorite one in this series so far.

That was perfectly coherent. *g* And thank you, Chrissy; I'm pleased you enjoyed this so much. :)

it's sweet! it made me think of the semisonic song 'secret smile' or something like that. man, I love Booth/Brennan!

I know Semisonic, but I don't know Secret Smile. *runs off to Youtube*

I'm glad you thought this was sweet, Lucy. And I with you on loving Booth & Brennan. :)

Awww. This is so beautiful.

Sweet Booth *sigh*

And your new header is awesome. He is so, so, so handsome ♥

Besos

Thanks, Isabel. Yes, Booth is a sweetheart, and DB is beautiful. :)

Thanks, Court. :)

I hope we get a kiss at the diner one day.

*sigh* Me too.

I'm loving this so much. The shy little smile she keeps just for him. :] eee.

Aw, thanks. Brennan's so got a "Booth smile." :)

As per the usual: very, very pretty. And words would only get in the way of their absolute perfection.

Side note: I'm totally rewatching the (whole freaking) series with my roommaate, and I accidentially let slip that B/B kiss. Now she's insanely curious about it. Personally, I'd rather we had one of these kisses instead.

Cheerio!

Oh, thank you! I'm glad you thought this was pretty.

Very fun. Another one bites the dust. *g*
