“Jack, I’m staying at Brennan’s tonight,” Angela says, and breezes a kiss across his mouth before heading out, leaving the faint scent of oranges in her wake.

When the doorbell rings, Jack sets his plate in the sink before answering the door. “Booth.”

Booth stands with his hands in his pockets, shoulders hunched.  “Hey, man.  Bad time?”

“No.  It’s just me, though.  Angela’s at Brennan’s.”

“I know.”

“Come on in.”

Jack suppresses a shiver as their arms brush.

“Sorry about Zack.  You two were close.” 

Booth’s large hand settles on his shoulder, squeezes.  “Thanks.”  Jack blinks.  “Want a beer?”
