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.”

I love Cam at the end of the drabble - her reaction is particularly powerful because she's so adept at reading social situations and immediately gets what's going on (even if, say, Brennan doesn't) and she has the grace to bow out, despite the fact that she and Booth once had a relationship.

Oh, and I totally agree with the person who said throwing out Jasper and Brainy is such a Brennan thing to do. Nice characterization there.

Yes. Just, yes, to everything you said about Cam.

I'm really pleased you "bought" Brennan's throwing out Jasper and Brainy when she thought Booth had died. It's a story choice I suspected might upset some readers, but I let it stand because I truly believed that it was one possible way in which Brennan would deal with her grief and loss.

Thanks for reading and commenting; I so appreciate it.
