Hidden Talents

One room, one bed.

“You take the bed, Bones.”

“We’re adults. We can share the bed.”

“I’m not sleeping with you.”

+

Booth stares into the darkness, trying to ignore the call of the dice. It’s like an itch on his back that he can’t reach.

A soft laugh cuts through his thoughts. He turns his head to see her lying on the opposite side of the bed. “Bones?”

Silence.

Later she laughs again; Booth smiles.

She hears his secrets without judgment, plays Roxie like a pro, and laughs in her sleep. What other hidden talents does his gorgeous partner have?

That's just fab. Great work with the prompt :) There's a real atmosphere to this one.

I have a whole new respect for you after trying these things btw, they are rock hard!

*g*

Oooh, atmosphere; what a neat comment! Thank you, my dear.

*g* They are challenging -- but addictive. I'm glad you decided to dip your toes in. :)


I love the hidden talents line, and the itch he can't reach. Lovely.

Very nicely done, oh queen of the drabble. I love the line about the dice, giving tribute to how hard Vegas must have been for him. Thank you

*laughs at being called "queen of the drabble"* That's very generous of you; thank you. :D

I'm thrilled you liked that line about the dice; I thought it was important to have the gambling figure in there somewhere.

Thanks again!

love this to bits.

Especially loved these lines:

Booth stares into the darkness, trying to ignore the call of the dice. It’s like an itch on his back that he can’t reach. Love the way you cut to the bone (no pun intended)with insights into Booth.

She hears his secrets without judgment, plays Roxie like a pro, and laughs in her sleep. What other hidden talents does his gorgeous partner have?
Oh, Baby!! He can only GUESS her other talents. :-)

Love the way you cut to the bone (no pun intended)with insights into Booth.

*blushes* Why thank you, madam. :)

He can only GUESS her other talents. :-)

LMAO Yes, but hopefully someday he'll know firsthand. ;)

The scene you pictured is just so adorable! :)

Thank you very much. I'm happy you enjoyed reading this drabble. :)

Love this :) Nicely written.

How do you manage to hit such a high standard every.single.time!!!

Love the idea of Brennan laughing in her sleep and love the use of the word 'gorgeous' - speaks volumes.

Inspirational!

:P I don't know that I DO manage to do that, but I try not to embarrass myself.

I'm glad you enjoyed the idea of Brennan laughing in her sleep. :) Thanks for your feedback.

Wonderful writing! I agree with the many other in saying that this line (Booth stares into the darkness, trying to ignore the call of the dice. It’s like an itch on his back that he can’t reach.) is absolutely wonderful!

:) Thanks, Leah. I felt like I had to touch on the gambling issue in some way in this drabble.

:D

Thank you!!! You are a genius!! it was great, and it fulfilled my doubts :)

The title was perfect and I have to coincide with everyone that this specific part, "Booth stares into the darkness, trying to ignore the call of the dice. It’s like an itch on his back that he can’t reach." It's so Booth. And their little fight for who gets to sleep on the bed, alkdajsdlaskñd! everything.

One of my friends laughs in her sleep. She'll giggle uncontrollably for about ten seconds and not remember a thing the next day. Made childhood sleepovers interesting.

Lovely, as usual.

Thanks! Glad you liked this. I've known people that laugh in their sleep, and it's kinda freaky. :P


Cut. And I bet he does wonder about her hidden talents.

Comment Hidden Talents

I am, as always, in awe of how you manage to fit so much into so few words.

You've captured them in the familiar, bickering and in a new place discovering.


Re: Comment Hidden Talents

Hey, I know you! I didn't realize you were here at LiveJournal. :) Great to "see" you.

Thank you for the lovely compliment.

I adore the fact that she giggles when she sleeps. LOL. I want to squish her. Or you. ;-P Thanks for that image! *snuggles it*

Re: Comment Hidden Talents

*pets your icon*

Thank you! Glad you liked that image of Brennan. And feel free to squish either of us. *g*

Brennan laughing in her sleep *g*

I like your take on the sleeping arrangements in that episode. (that's still a debate btw my mom and I - she argues that they had separate rooms; I think they shared the bed)

*g* I'm happy you enjoyed this. Thanks for letting me know.

that's still a debate btw my mom and I

It's the question that launched a thousand fanfics! ;)
