Brennan finds Booth seated beside her.  She didn’t hear him enter, but then she’s felt a constant buzz of distraction since—

 “I brought you something.”  Booth extends his palm.  

Pewter glints; Brennan’s breath stutters.  “Why?”

 “Angela told me you threw out Jasper and Brainy when you thought I was dead.”

“I—”

“It’s OK.  I understand.”  He raises an eyebrow.  “Take it.”

“It’s a Celtic knot.” Slowly, she reaches for the pendant hanging from black cord.

He shrugs.  “I just thought you’d like it.”

A knock sounds; Cam stands in the doorway.  Her gaze flickers between them.  “I’ll come back.”

Very nice. I can totally buy that she might throw out the keepsakes, and I like Cam slipping back out when she ssees them.

Thank you. I'm happy this drabble worked for you. I knew Brennan throwing away Jasper and Brainy had the potential to upset some readers, but I honestly saw it as one possible way she'd handle her grief.

Yep. I can too. I can see her tucking them away into a drawer with other important stuff, much as she kept the gifts from that 15-years-ago Christmas, but there was not finality in that case and she had some tiny hope that she'd find her parents and be able to open the gifts with them...and in this case, there is nothing but guilt and anger and loss. So it totally worked for me.
