A/N – Inspired by a picture of a hallway and stairs…gotta love creative writing class. This first chapter is from Booth's point of view.

Disclaimer – I don't own anything except for the first season and possibly the second…I'll know on Saturday!!

I'm standing in the hallway outside you door. I'm trying to decide whether or not I should knock. At the moment my fight or flight response is edging towards flight. Knock or run. I glance over my shoulder only to be greeted by the sight of looming stairs and flickering lights. I know I screwed up so bad… I wouldn't be surprised if you never really want to see me again. I'm pretty sure that I wouldn't know what to do if I found out that you can't stand the sight of me, that I make you want tot cry. It would break my heart if I found out that I caused you that much pain. To me causing the ones you love pain is one of the most unforgivable things ever. This almost seems like one of those terribly cheesy romance movies. Boy meets girl, boy screws up, girl leaves boy, boy wins girls back, and boy and girl live happily ever after. Will our story have a happily ever after?

I look over my shoulder again and I see my choices. I can either tell you just how sorry I am, or I can do us both a huge favour and leave. I know you hate me, and with that I know what I have to do.

A/N – Read and review please and thanks!! Much appreciated.
