He's a fool. That's gotta be it. Why else is he standing in the doorway watching Russ Brennan, minus handcuffs, hug his stepdaughter? Cullen would have his ass in a sling if he found out about this little detour to the hospital. Make that his ass, his balls, and his badge--all of which he'd really like to keep, thank you very much.
Or maybe it's that no matter how hard he tries to forget, he remembers the thousand separate moments he didn't have with his son. He's old enough to realize he'll never get them back, but maybe this man and this girl can have one moment. It's a gamble--that's against the rules, Seeley--but what's one more broken rule when the house is on fire?
Whoa. She just kissed him. "Thank you, Booth."
His face is tingling so much he almost can't feel it, and wow that doesn't make any sense. He. Can't. Move. Getagripgetagripgetagrip...
Maybe one of these days she'll touch him and it won't have anything to do with gratitude, grief, or her crazy family.
Fuck; he really is a fool.
Author's Note: The Knight on the Grid is one of my favorite Bones episodes--and not because of the kiss. What are your faves?
