They're stopped at a red light when Booth says, "You ever hear from Sully?"  The words sound casual, but he regrets asking the question.  

He thinks she'd tell him if she was seeing someone.  Knowing her, she'd give him so many details he'd have to blow his entire next paycheck on socks and ties.  Which makes him wonder if Sully still has a hold on her.  He'd know, wouldn't he?  

Brennan's eyebrows lift in surprise, but she meets his gaze directly when she answers.  "He sends me an occasional postcard."  She shrugs.  "I don't write back, though."

"Why not?"    

"Because it would only be an unnecessary social nicety.  Sully and I are over.  I cared for him very much"--Booth's jaw tightens, and he forces it to relax--"but he's there, I'm here."

"And you're ok with that?"  Another question he hadn't intended to ask, but he can't seem to control his mouth.

"Of course."  She smiles, and he finds himself smiling back.  "I chose to stay.  I have a life to live and work to do."

"I know.  I was just wondering."

"I'm glad you asked."


"Yes. Partners should feel comfortable discussing their respective romantic relationships."

"So...How about them Steelers?"

I've always been sure that Booth wonders about Sully all the time. He's not exactly jealous but wants to know if they're in contact or if she misses him.

Sully sending her an occasional postcard seems so real. So them.

Knowing her, she'd give him so many details he'd have to blow his entire next paycheck on socks and ties. --> Loved that part. ^_^

It's been soooo nice.

*silly grin*

"So...How about them Steelers?"
Lol, Booth. LOL.
I love how she can push his buttons, whether it's knowingly or unknowingly.

Oh yeah. She's got his number. ;)

Thanks for reading and commenting, Ren.

Oh yeah, Brennan can give as good as she gets, which is great because Booth has finally met his match :D

I like that she wanted him to ask. It speaks to how truly entwined their lives are, her wanting him to know personal information, etc.

Thanks for reading and commenting!

*smooches you* Thank you, Court.

This is one scene I can so see happening on the show! Amazing :)

"Yes. Partners should feel comfortable discussing their respective romantic relationships."

So, Sully is out of the picture but now Booth is going to drive himself crazy with the deeper implications of that statement. Poor guy.

He's so fucked. *g*

Thanks for reading!

No matter how you look at it, he's screwed. ;)

Thank you for reading.

I'm going to campaign that you become a writer for the show. ;)

I really love these dribbles.

(Deleted comment)
Sometimes I think these little dribbles are all that's lacking from the show. :)

Aww, thank you. Glad you're enjoying these. :)

I'm definitely enjoying them. I don't always post, but I'm always reading. :)

:) That's a lovely thing to say. Thank you!

ETA: Oops, sorry for the multiple replies.

I like multiple replies. It makes me inbox look like the world loves me. ;)

And, you're welcome. I seriously meant what I said. I've been reading a lot of Bones fics lately, and you're about the only writer who has been able to capture their relationship perfectly, without tainting it with your ideas of what their relationship should be... I hope that made sense. (I'll blame the cold and flu medication if it didn't. :D)

That was.. awesome.
The way you write their line, it's just... so them! Really..

:D And I so want to see something like that on the show :D

their lines* Sorry ^^' little mistake xD

yeah .... how ABOUT them Steelers? :-)

well-done, as always.

Oh, I love B/B, and April cannot come soon enough.

Oh, I love B/B, and April cannot come soon enough.

I'm with you!

Thank you for feeding me, my dear Makd. *showers you with glitter and hands you a gift-wrapped Seeley Booth* ;)

Awkward moment to be broken by Booth and football. Like she knows who the steelers are! :P Hee.

*snickers* Booth is such a baby sometimes.

Thanks for reading and feeding, Sarah! :)

This reminds me of a JAG Christmas ep where Mac tells Harm that her ex-fiance still sends her postcards from Australia. To which Harm replies he still keeps in touch with HIS ex who ended up marrying a mortician. (Something like that anyway, and for a non-fan, Harm + Mac = love)

*waves fist angrily at JAG's TPTB* After watching Bones, I can't believe I squeed at bread crumbs like that. But this was good.

I've never watched JAG, but I've heard many fans were frustrated by how they drew out Harm and Mac's UST.

Thanks for commenting. I'm glad you liked this. :)
