Recognition

Max presses a kiss to his daughter’s forehead and murmurs, “Thank you, honey.”

She doesn’t reply, just smiles her mother’s smile as he releases her.

Max looks for Booth, catching sight of his back. Feeling free for the first time in many years, Max hurries down the courthouse steps. “Booth,” he calls.

The other man turns, hands in his pockets. “Yeah?”

Standing on the step above him, Max extends his hand. “Thanks.”

Booth returns his gaze, eyes narrowed against the sunlight. “I didn’t do it for you.”

A slow smile stretches Max’s mouth. “I know.”

“Good.” Booth shakes his hand.

Wow! Perfect! It’s short… but plenty of meaning.

Max extends his hand. "Thanks."
Booth returns his gaze, eyes narrowed against the sunlight. "I didn’t do it for you."
A slow smile stretches Max's mouth. "I know."


Max is so smart :)

Besos

Love love love - that there is Max, and that is Booth - perfectly! :)

Booth and Max...awesome and so true!

Oh yea, Max DEFINITELY knows, lol. Great job!

Oh yes he knows, and Booth knows; I wonder if Bones knows? Of course she does. That's why she did it.

*Notes current mood.* Oh poor you.

Max knows what we all know, but, will she know? ;)

Oh, for a sec I felt like Phoebe on Friends: 'But they don't know that we know they know we know'. *g*

I loved this, your words hide so many unspoken feelings... :)


So beautiful! I really liked it. And it's something that could have happened in the episode. I mean, it is really like the show. My compliments! :)

ooh. I love this. I love the clear communication between Max and Booth. Love their up-front way of speaking to each other.

We need Max next season for him to talk to Booth.


Great job!

Good job! There was more to that final scene and the strange understanding that Booth and Max have is one aspect of that. (It's also ironic because I was going to add something else regarding that final scene and another member of Brennan's family to your drabble meme--*runs off to do that now*)

I especially loved:
She doesn’t reply, just smiles her mother’s smile as he releases her.

Oh, this was so good! So short but to the point. Great!

I love your icon. Soooo pretty.
