Booth doesn't fear her anger. He's used to it; the narrowing of those quicksilver eyes and the unyielding line of those lips only make her more beautiful to him. But he's been hiding from this day, when she'd look at him with raw disappointment, as if a faith she claims she's never had has been burnt to cold ashes. By his careless hands.
He took a bullet for her. Doesn't that mean something? Maybe it's better this way, though. Maybe it's best she knows now that he is no better than her father or anyone else who has hurt her.
