Early morning sunlight glints on the water as Booth stands on the docks and watches Sully wave from aboard Temperance. Brennan waves back, a breeze ruffling the ends of her hair. The set of her shoulders tells Booth everything he needs to know regarding her feelings about watching yet another person walk--or in this case sail--away from her. At least she got to say goodbye this time. He hopes that helps somewhat.

When she turns, he makes sure he's wearing an irritating smirk. She isn't crying, thank God; it was bad enough watching her make out with Sully. He doesn't want to have to hold her as she cries for him, too.

"What are you doing here?" she asks, her expression pouty, reminding him of Parker when he doesn't get his way.

"Waving goodbye. See?" He lifts his hand in a little wave, letting his smirk widen.

"What do you want?"

Booth answers her, his mouth moving, but the exact words don't matter. One night she asked him if she should go. He told her to live wide. This morning his answer--the one that matters--is in the way his arm wraps 'round her shoulders and pulls her into his side.

Oh, this is my favorite scene.

You know what makes a great weekend super-great? Fic, fic, and more fic. Long or short, I don't care.

It's a great scene. :)

Thanks for reading!

I love that scenne and the way you write about it is just amazing =D
And don't bother responding to all the comments, i would rather you spend you time writing fics or drabble ^^

I'm so glad you enjoyed this, Kiska. Thank you. :)

It is always nice to know people are reading this.

You're wonderful at writing, people will always read your work :D

Aww, thank you for your kind words.

What a great take on that scene.

Oh. I loved this scene. Booth had another good one. He's down in the lab and looks back and sees Bones and Sully kissing. Have you written that scene? I'd love to read it if you have.

We learned so much from what they didn't say. I love this. You really know them both, especially Booth, I think.

Thanks, Kaydee! They are fascinating characters--and a lot of fun to write. :)

My heart broke for Booth when he saw Brennan and Sully kissing in her office. And yes, I did hit that scene. You can read it here.


"This morning his answer--the one that matters--is in the way his arm wraps 'round her shoulders and pulls her into his side."

Such a great line.

Thanks, Asra. It's so sweet how he would have let her go because he wanted her to be happy, but actually he wanted her to stay. And then, of course, he's right there to look after her when Sully leaves. *sigh*

You know, this episode consistently reminds me of that saying about loving someone and setting them free..
*shock*
I just realized I have no Bones icons right now. I'll be back.

Exactly, Ren!

Lovely little insight into Booth's thoughts :)

Btw I absolutely love your new LJ image, and the intensity on Booth's face. *le sigh*

Thanks, Piper. As for the header, I love, love, love the way they were looking at each other. *sigh*

Nice work, on both this and Star Light, Star Bright:)

I wasn't crazy about this scene in canon, but I really like your take on it.

Last night she asked him if she should go. He told her to live wide. This morning his answer--the one that matters--is in the way his arm wraps 'round her shoulders and pulls her into his side.

This is so good. I got all goosebumpy. :)

Thanks very much; I'm glad this gave you chills. :)

The last two lines: so true, so very true.

I loved that scene. And this makes it even more bittersweet. Love it. :)

Hmm, it's good to have a nice clear insight into what Booth and Brennan think, and you always seem to execute that in the most perfect way possible. This just adds the perfect depth to the end of that episode and makes me want to *squee!*

Squeeing is good when it involves Booth and Brennan. *g* And thank you very much; I'm touched that you think I have believable insight into Booth and Brennan. :)

Wooow!!! That scene description is intense :D
Love the last part
