Timeline: Set after Brennan accosts Booth in his bathroom.
Mirror, MirrorIt isn’t until she’s back home, alone, staring at her reflection in her own bathroom mirror, that Brennan smiles. Where did Booth find that ridiculous contraption he’d had perched atop his head when she’d stormed the steam-filled bastion of his bathroom?
The smile edges into wild laughter echoing off the walls and clanging in her ears. She braces her arms hard against her stomach.
Hold it in. Hold it in.
The futile admonishment ricochets ‘round her brain. She gasps. Within the space of one peal of laughter, dubious humor alchemizes into saltwater; she nearly drowns in it.
Booth is alive.
