Thanks for the gum. Well, that was stupid. Thanks for the gum? Booth shook his head as he strode quickly out of the Jeffersonian. Of all the lamest lines, he had to go with that one.

Why didn't I just come out and say it? No one was around to hear it. Oh yeah. That would have gone over well. "WOW, Bones, that was HOT!" She'd beat my ass all the way to Peru. Peru…

His jaw chomped up and down furiously, but slowed as he realized was he was doing. Booth leaned against his SUV and took a ragged breath. He did not dare spit out the Spearmint gum. The taste was nothing near strong. It was…sweeter, and more…delicious.

Like her, he thought, smiling. It slowly disappeared. And I had to walk away. He banged his fist against the window of his driver's side door. Damnit. Booth had just walked away from the best Christmas gift he had ever received. What had went through his mind?

He switched the gum from the left side of his mouth to the right side. Still sweet.

Still sweet.

She's still in there, he thought. She's still waiting. I wonder what she's thinking about right now? His loving smile changed to a mischievous one. Only one way to find out.

I can't believe I just did that, Brennan thought as she breathed heavily. But it was definitely worth it. She stopped typing on her computer as a smile crept across her lips. I never knew he was such a great kisser. Scratch that…FRENCH kisser.

It was only then that she noticed. My gum… Her hand flew to her mouth as her face went pale. That's how Booth found her when he returned.

"Hey." He greeted, approaching her desk slowly.

She looked up. "Hey."

There was an awkward silence as Brennan stood and moved to the front of her desk.

"What is it, Booth?" she asked, leaning back on the mahogany tabletop.

He took a step closer so that their bodies were almost touching and lightly placed his hands on her hips.

"I was…I was just wondering if you wanted your gum back?"
