After spending most of the rainy evening retrieving bone fragments from a ditch, neither of them were in a good mood. "I just want a hot shower and my bed," Brennan said as they trudged across asphalt by the cool light of the moon. The sharp edge to her voice convinced Booth of her seriousness, but after slanting a glance at her profile, he decided to take his chances.

"Come back to my place. My shower's just as good. So's my bed." He paused, pulling out his best smile. "As a bonus, you get me," he said, easing his arm around her waist.

"Booth..." Somehow she managed to fill the word with a world of weariness.


They stopped next to Brennan's car. The wrinkle between her eyebrows telegraphed her inner struggle. "All right," she finally said.

"Thank you."

Without speaking, she moved to lean against his side for a heartbeat.

"You're wasting water," she said as he turned on the shower with the intention of letting it run till the water got nice and hot.

"I don't care." Turning, he slipped his hands underneath the hem of her shirt and stroked his thumbs over the soft skin of her stomach, toward her hips, and back again. A shiver ran through her and into him. He watched her eyes slide shut. Smiling, Booth inched the shirt up and over her head and arms, then let it fall to the floor.

Her breasts pressed against his chest as he drew her toward him. With a sigh, he bent his head to her shoulder and dropped a kiss there. He inhaled; she smelled like damp earth, green and mossy.

Wordlessly, she shifted closer.

"Poor Bones." He pitched his voice low. "Tired?"

She nodded.

"Then let's get you cleaned up and into bed."

Author Note: So I know these aren't everyone's cup of tea, and that's perfectly fine. Frankly, I'm not sure they're MY cup of tea, but the jury's still out on that. That said, I wanted to write this, so I did.

Pass the tea pot, my dear; this is exactly my cup of oolong! (Erm..make that ICED tea, okay? After reading that, it feels a bit hot in here.) ;-)

Hello, I'm Lele and recently I've been looking for ones fic because of the fact that it is coming back so soon, on my birthday to be exact, (I know I'm squeeing more for bones then my birthday xD). When I stumbled across your fiction, I was wonderfully surprised by a person who could actually portray these characters together without messing up the show. I truly believe that you are the best writer I've seen on LJ, and I hope, for my sanity, that you continue writing until the end of time, or at least until I become a case for Booth and Brennan ;D.

For this fic in particular, utter love, I've never seen a writer who can portray so much in so little time.


Lerdo I love it... You can capture the sweetness of the moment :D

That was so sweet!
I wish i had a shower and a bed like that to go back to when i'm tired! :P

Pretty - I always like it when B&B take care of one another.

lowers sheilds and un-lurks.........for a cup of your delicious Rosy-Lea (tea).

This series it the first thing I check for when I log on.

All your work just makes me feel warm and fuzzy.

A BB drabble a day would make me very happy

Booth taking care of Brennan. Niiiicce.

And I see you know have the sex-on-a-stick picture of Dave as your header (also known as you know you want to fuck me.)
