You Scratch My Back...

“You have a scratch on your back.” Her voice seemed to come from far away. He always suspected she had good hands, what with all the detailed work she did, fitting together even the tiniest bits of bone; as he recently discovered, he was right. Not only did his gorgeous girlfriend help give victims back their identity, she gave a mean backrub.

Booth lay sprawled on his stomach in his bed, with Brennan straddling his hips. “Mmph,” he replied into his pillow.

“I said”--Brennan stopped kneading his shoulders and dug her fingers into his armpit--“there is a scratch on your back.”

“Hey, quit it,” he said, turning his head and almost laughing at the ticklish sensation. “I heard you the first time.” Wriggling a little to get comfortable again, he said, “Yeah, there’s a scratch on my back – and you put it there.”

“I did not,” she protested.

“Well, I sure as hell didn’t do it, and as far as I know, I’m not sleeping with anyone else.”

“As far as you know?”

Booth grinned. Despite how their relationship had changed, some things hadn’t: he still knew exactly which buttons to push. “Jealous, Bones?” He pushed up onto his hands and knees, dislodging Brennan and sending her tumbling onto her back.

Her cheeks colored with a hint of pink. “Hardly. I was merely questioning the logic of your statement. If you were involved with someone else, however casually—”

“Don’t worry,” he said, leaning in until his mouth grazed her ear, “you’re the only woman I want scratching my back.” He felt her shiver.

A slim eyebrow arched. “And I suppose you expect me to be grateful for that.”

He winked. “I’ll settle for a kiss.”

“One kiss?”

“For starters,” he said, sliding his hand under her t-shirt.

Who knows? After last episode's declaration, maybe.... maybe... someday we'll actually see this scene. :-)

Anything's possible. ;)

Thanks for reading.

I never knew fics could be cosy until now. Like a snuggly, warm, blanket-y kind of cosy. Which is pretty damn impressive seeing as how it's a bunch of words on a screen and not actual bedding.

*applauds your mad blankety skillz*

(I'm tired and incoherent. I apologise.)

Your comments were plenty coherent -- and they made ME feel cozy and content. So thank you. :)

Love Booth's teasing of her. He does indeed know how to push her buttons.

They make my heart sing. *g*

Thanks for reading!

aww I want more than five lol. I like it when you write.

♥ Thanks for the lovely comment! :)

*happy happy sighs*

I adore these little warm, slices of future-life for them ;)

You do it better than anyone else out there, babe *g*

*snuggles you* Thank you, honey.

I love how you write their complicity and intimacy. It's so them.


*smooch* Thank you very much, G.


After a long time without reading (so sorry :x)
You still the same!!

Why thank you! Glad you enjoyed this. :)

The perfect level of warm for a cold evening. ♥

No, of course she's not jealous. Of course not XD

*g* Not at all. ;)

Thanks for reading.

I agree completely with bertie456. =]
When reading this I felt like I was looking through a window into this little scene in the future, this cute, cozy little scene.
And despite being cute and cozy, you manage to infuse who they are into every line of this. You manage include their banter and still create this easy, go-with-the-flow, real-life-can-never-find-us-here kind of feeling.

Thank you for leaving such a wonderful comment. :) I'm really glad you felt this was "like them," though we're obviously not getting any scenes like this on the show right now.
