Timeline:  Set after Brennan accosts Booth in his bathroom.

Mirror, Mirror

It 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.

I like your drabble!

but I still don't really like that scene - except for Brennans "lack of puritan modesty" quote (sometimes things make you laugh and regret that you're at the same time - I always try to tell myself that they had to make it so ridiculous so it would not be too embarrassing or sexually connotated for the characters - (am I making sense?) to deflect from their emotions..

but then again: why make that scene anyway...

Thanks. :) And I hear you; I didn't like the bathroom scene either -- which is precisely why I wrote this drabble.

You're definitely making sense; I understand what you're saying.
