The air conditioner’s busted, and even with the windows open, it’s too hot to sleep. Every so often a sluggish current of air moves into the room, just nudging the blinds. Booth lies in bed and stares up at the ceiling. His body is slicked with sweat, and the sheets stick to his back, making him shift uncomfortably every few minutes. The effects of the cold shower he took hours ago have worn off, and all he wants to do is close his eyes and drift off for the night.

Sighing, he scrubs a hand through his hair; it comes away damp. He knows it’s unlikely he’ll fall asleep anytime soon, but he’s gotta try. So he shuts his eyes and lets his hand drift down from his stomach. He’s already half hard. It only takes a minute of picturing Brennan in the thin, sleeveless, v-neck shirt she’d worn that day to go from half to fully.

He’d known there’d be hell to pay if she caught him staring, so he’d done his best to sneak peeks when her attention was clearly focused elsewhere. If he squinted hard enough, he could just make out the beginning of her cleavage, and it got him so hot he had to think of something really gross in order to swing his mind back to their case.

He hasn’t been thirteen and horny in a long, long time; sometimes Brennan makes him feel like he still is.

As he strokes himself, he can’t help hoping that one day she’ll take off whatever she’s wearing and let him see what till now he’s only fantasized about.

Booth comes silently, his mouth forming her name.

After cleaning up and returning to bed, he wonders how much longer his hand and his imagination will be enough.


Author Note: Ok, so maybe this is more sad than hot. I'm not sure. But I am sure that Booth's had a lot of sleepless nights thanks to Brennan.

I’m working on Between the Lines; it’s giving me fits, but I’m (trying) to soldier on.

Thanks, Sam.

i love that it only takes a simple, mundane thought of her to arouse him.

I like that, too. Sometimes, if you care about someone enough and are strongly attracted to them, that's all it takes. :)

I think it can be both sad and hot at the same time. Booth taking care of himself? That's always going to be hot. But Booth lying awake, wanting Brennan and remembering stolen glances, because that's all he's allowed? Sure, it makes me a bit sad. And ... I think that's all. Happy Wednesday to you.

I think it can be both sad and hot at the same time.

Absolutely. I just wasn't sure if this was.

In my world, Brennan and Booth earn a happy ending, but who knows what'll happen?

Thanks for stopping by. :) Hope your Wednesday was a good one, too.

Poor Booth.
Silly Brennan for not getting some of that action. *g*
Booth seems like a man quite undone in this- which must be troubling considering how contained he can sometimes be.

Yes, poor Booth.

I know, right? ;) To be fair, though, Booth drew the line.

I'm glad that came across. In my mind at least, Seeley Booth is capable of and possibly heading toward a spectacular meltdown. (Not in this ficlet, but sometime.) That seeming containment is a warning sign.

Wow! It's hot, no doubt. Darkness, heat, sweat, naked Booth… and taking care of himself. Yes, it's HOT!!!
He wonders how much longer his hand and his imagination will be enough. Ok, perhaps it has a bit of sadness too.

Yes, I am sure too. But I hope it will change soon xD

Besos

Thanks very much. Glad you thought this was both hot and sad.

Yes, I am sure too. But I hope it will change soon xD

I don't think it will change soon on the show, but who knows?


That was certainly hot.
Thank you so much for giving me that picture of Booth sweating in bed.

It's a pretty picture, isn't it? ;)

Thanks for reading and feeding, Foxy. *hugs*

I'm not sure if I felt sadness, but maybe that's because I live in a fantasy land where it's inevitable that Brennan will help Booth scratch those itches ;)

And my Wednesday smile comes from you, and your gift of a hot and sweaty Booth... *fans self*

*joins you in your happy place* :)

Aww... Thanks for saying that. I'm glad this made you smile, my dear.

Poor sexually frustrated Booth. Of course, I now have a nice visual in my mind, so lucky me!

Booth's pain is our gain. (?) ;) What awful people we are. *g*

So Booth - missing her, wanting her, trying to find quick satisfaction.

Thank you.

...missing her, wanting her, trying to find quick satisfaction.

Yes. Exactly.

And... off I go to bed.

*grins wickedly*

I agree that this was a little sad, but in a very sweet, hot way. Beautifully done.

LOL *winks*

Thank you so much. I'm glad it read that way for you. :)

I'm not familiar with this fandom at all, but that's the beauty of drabbles, right? I was about to post mine at drabble123 when I saw your cut for five ficlets, intrigued I clicked, I read the first one, and it's beautiful. The last sentence is really sad but powerful.

He wonders how much longer his hand and his imagination will be enough.

Congratulations.
