Dead leaves crunch under Booth's shoes as he steps off the sidewalk and into Barnes & Noble.  He breathes deeply, letting the warm air push the November chill from his lungs. 

The kid's section is his first stop, and he finds three books for Parker.  Afterward, he heads for the cash registers.

On impulse, he veers toward the mystery section.  When he finds what he's looking for, he sets Parker's books on a shelf.  Then he tucks his gloves into his coat pocket before grabbing Bred in Bone. 

The hardcover book is a solid weight in his hands.  She looks out from the back flap, her gaze turned toward the left.  It's her--only not.  Her mouth quirks in the briefest of smiles, and as he traces it with his index finger, a flicker of jealousy dances up his spine.  What did the photographer say to coax that secret smile from her?  No stranger should get the kind of smile he'd worked for months to get. 

A glance at his watch pulls him from his thoughts and pushes him toward the front of the store. 

The pretty blonde cashier smiles as she hands him the bag, but he barely notices. 

Author's Note:  I'm so happy the WGA strike is officially over. :)

Hopefully, Booth will not react in the same way as the Duke did in Robert Browning's My Last Duchess.

I doubt that he will. Jealousy doesn't always lead to murder. *g*

Edited because I'm clearly not awake yet.

Lovely little drabble. Thanks so much for sharing :)

Thanks so much for reading this. :)

Cuteness! I love that he's jealous just from looking at a book. That's when you know you're in over your head - inanimate objects are driving you crazy.

LOL Yeah, Booth's a goner.

Thanks for popping in to let me know you thought this was cute. :)

There's something just so adorable about completely-in-love Booth, even if he's probably not quite aware of his feelings. Don't you just want to hug him?

Don't you just want to hug him?

Absolutely. *g*

Thanks for commenting!

I loved this, it's very telling. Poor Booth, I wonder if he knows why he feels that way or if he hasn't acknowledged it yet.

Thank you!

Interesting question. ;)

oooh nice :) I so have to get to the bookstore again lol

Thanks. :)

Bookstores = love. *sighs*

I love that he's jealous of the smile. I wonder how did the photographer manage to snap it?

I wonder how did the photographer manage to snap it?

Great question! Perhaps a topic for a different double drabble...

As always, thank you for your many comments. You make my day/week/month with them. *hugs you*

+.+ Too much love in that finger!
Completely romantic :D Loved it.

:hugs: Thanks, Sara. Yes, it's love.

He goes straight to the picture. :D Of course the blonde doesn't matter. A man in love is a man in love! Brennan > all other women.

Brennan > all other women.

*g* But of course.

*does the happy dance because the writer's strike is over*

But that still means... it will be awhile before new Bones. *cry*

At least it's March now. :)
