Bones Drabble: Enjoy the Silence

Title: Enjoy the Silence (1/1)

Rating: PG-13
Words: Exactly 100
Spoilers: Vague for Season 6. Nothing beyond what's aired in the U.S.

Disclaimer: Bones and its characters belong to FOX, not me. This story is purely meant to entertain. No copyright infringement is intended.
A/N:  I lied; I said I would write something happy and filled with bunnies next, but I just can't seem to find those damned fluffy things anywhere. Believe me, I'm trying.

To lurkers and commenters alike, thank you.

Feel free to friend for updates. If you'd like me to add you back, please say something; I don't bite. :)

Enjoy the Silence

Brennan shoots him a sidelong glance that he pretends not to notice. He’s spent so many years observing, studying, cataloguing every quicksilver flash of her eyes, every curve and tightening of her lips, that it’s impossible for him to stop reading her now.

A fucking Ph.D. in Bones; that’s what Booth’s earned. Looks like he’s a squint after all.

There have always been things they don’t discuss, unless it’s in that peculiar code they’ve developed. But she hesitates more often these days, choosing her words too carefully, or worse, staying silent.

It’s his fault he’s lost his best friend.
