Max presses a kiss to his daughter’s forehead and murmurs, “Thank you, honey.”

She doesn’t reply, just smiles her mother’s smile as he releases her.

Max looks for Booth, catching sight of his back. Feeling free for the first time in many years, Max hurries down the courthouse steps. “Booth,” he calls.

The other man turns, hands in his pockets. “Yeah?”

Standing on the step above him, Max extends his hand. “Thanks.”

Booth returns his gaze, eyes narrowed against the sunlight. “I didn’t do it for you.”

A slow smile stretches Max’s mouth. “I know.”

“Good.” Booth shakes his hand.

Good job! There was more to that final scene and the strange understanding that Booth and Max have is one aspect of that. (It's also ironic because I was going to add something else regarding that final scene and another member of Brennan's family to your drabble meme--*runs off to do that now*)
