Disclaimer: I don't own "Bones"
FBI Agent Seely Booth watched Dr. Temperance Brennan moved across the room as she examined the bones of their latest case.
"Beautiful." He thought to himself.
She felt his eyes as he watched her every step of the way. Temperance glided gracefully almost cat-like. Seely wondered if her movements would be similar in bed or just the opposite, like an untamed animal.
The forensic anthropologist turned suddenly and caught a glimpse of the FBI agent who's occupied her thoughts for the last several months. Seely sat on the edge of the table, his hands crossed in front and his eyes moved back and forth to her every movement. Temperance was prey to his own appetite.
Temperance stood in the shower as hot water hit against her body. She closed her eyes and reminisced back of the closeness towards her as he gently wrapped his arms around her tiny waist when she nearly tripped on a footstool. That memory played continuously in her head as she memorized his touch.
Seely tossed and turned in bed. It came to a point where not only was she in his thoughts throughout the day, but also in his dreams. Something needed to be done and he wasn't about to wait any longer. He needed to talk to her. He didn't know exactly what he'd say to her, but something had to be said. His clock read 12:00 midnight. He reached for his telephone and hit number one on his speed dial. He counted five rings before his favorite anthropologist picked up her phone.
"Hey, Bones, did I get you up?"
"Seely? What is it? Has something happened? It's midnight. Are you alright?" She sounded concerned.
"Yeah, yeah, I'm alright." He answered anxiously.
"I...," he hesitated at first. "We need to talk. I need to talk to you."
"Yeah, now." The only sound on the phone was their breaths. Temperance broke their silence.
"Yeah, I'm still here." Suddenly, the cowardly agent changed his mind. "Uh, look Bones, sorry I got you up. Just go back to sleep, okay?" Quickly, he hung up. "I just wanted to tell you I love you," he told himself. When did Temperance Brennan find her way into his heart.
Temperance laid in bed and wondered what was the reason for his call. She sighed sadly. She loved working side by side with him and each night when she went home to an empty house, the light inside of her flickered off. When did Seely Booth find his way into her heart.
