Mara Muerte has put a hit out on your lady scientist.

Booth’s given up on perfect answers. She’ll be pissed he’s late; she’ll be alive, too.

He waits, ignoring the unease crawling beneath his skin. He can be patient.

A flash of gray and blue in the side mirror. Ortez. Big, easy steps -- like life is good and no one can touch him. Booth almost smiles, then unfolds himself from the car.

He slams him back against dirty red brick. The little shit is talking: guys like him never know when to shut up.

Booth answers. First with words and then his fist. Next with his gun squeezed into the fleshy hollow just below Ortez’s chin.

Baring his teeth, Booth barks out a few more words. What he says doesn’t matter; the gun he shoves into the man’s mouth does the talking for him. It’s a language that bridges all divides.

Turning away, he takes a couple steps before whipping back around and aiming right between Ortez’s eyes. The tang of fear hovers between them, and he isn’t sure if it’s his or Ortez’s.

What scares him is how badly he wants to pull the trigger.

She’s my partner, ese.


Author's Note: Only six days till we get a new episode of Bones. :)

He was sooooooo hot in that scene.

::swoons::

Hot and very dangerous.

BTW, if you don't mind my asking, what does your icon represent? I've been wondering for a while.

Well, years ago I was into tarot cards and this was the image on one of the cards from my favorite deck, The Cosmic Tarot. For some reason that I don't even remember anymore, I felt especially drawn to this image. I don't really use the cards anymore, but I still think the artwork on the cards is gorgeous.

Thanks for the explanation. :) It's a very interesting image; I can understand why you were drawn to it!

I loved this scene so much. I watched it about seven times. It was beautiful.

Okay, so I found all of your fics about a week ago, and I had finished reading them all in about a day. You've quickly become one of my favorite authors.

Hanyways, just wanted to drop a line and tell you how much I love you.

It's one of those scenes that makes you catch your breath. For all his humor, Booth is a dangerous man; I think it's important to not forget that.

Thanks so much! I've been going through a bit of a writing funk, so your comments came at the perfect time. I'm thrilled you've been enjoying my stories; I'd still write if no one but me read my fics, but it is fun and gratifying to be able to share them with other people who love the show. :) So thank you again.

Loved that scene ;) Thank you :)

It's a very interesting scene; I thought DB and whoever played Ortez both did an excellent job.

Thank you for reading and commenting.

oooh. That scene... Wow. That's the one where I knew I was going to be along for the ride. Up till then, I'd been watching the show, enjoying it, having fun, enjoying the DB-growth as an actor, then Whoosh! I I realized that DB had grown a LOT as an actor; I realized that there might be something to this B/B thingy. I remembered the eight years he patiently played Angel - and that this man was so easy to underestimate.

Yeah, that scene. When he walked out of the car and grabbed Ortez, I craned my neck and said, Whoa!

And yes: she's my partner, ese....and so much more....

*nods emphatically*

You said it perfectly, so I shan't add anything. :)

Thanks for reading and feeding, sweetie.

Oh I love that scene. And I admit that I was surprised when I saw a so dark Booth. He was so angry, so furious…

You write a perfect Booh, as always.

Besos

It's an interesting and excellently acted scene. I miss those bits of Season 1 Booth. Sometimes it feels like they've made him a little TOO clownish in later seasons.

Thanks for your kind comments, my dear. *hugs*

Thank you; glad you liked it.

I'm pleased you liked it! Thanks. :)

AWESOME. So much in 200 words. Thank you, you made me smile :)

Thank you for making me smile. :)

Loved the insight into that scene, and into what brings out violence in Booth.

Thanks very much for commenting; I appreciate it. It's easy to forget what a dangerous man Booth is underneath his charm and apparently easygoing personality.

I’ve just seen this episode in the french tv, and waouh. This scene was so intense... As you say it, Booth can be dangerous to protect those who he loves. His partner. Not only his partner ! (the look they excha
You make my day better. But I should stop coming to read your Web site., because there is so much good things to read, and like I'm working... But no, not going on your site... it's impossible. Too bad. I'll not work a lot today... And the other days ;-)

(the look they exchange at the end of the 02x07, when they eat stale doughnuts... Well, you know, you're... you're structured... very well...)

Hello. :) Thank you very much; I'm pleased you enjoyed it. Could you please clarify what you mean re: your comment about spoilers? I'm confused because the header for this double drabble states that it contains spoilers through 1x13.

You always seem to pick my favorite scenes...Especially the Booth scenes!

I love the way he turns and presses the gun to his forehead...it is like an homage to the pilot when he squeezed off a wide shot to get the conversation going, but in the end whirled back and put to shots in the head of the target.

LOVE BOOTH!

Thank you for the story...
Sid
