A/N: Got the idea from the X-Files episode "DeadAlive". Mulder making jokes as soon as he wakes up…well I guess he just wanted to see her smile…Awwww! Just like their kiss in "The Truth"!
He looked like he was sleeping. His chest rose and fell evenly with every breath he took. The machines on the side of the bed monitored his brain activity.
Temperance Brennan sat at her partner's bedside. She cradled his large hand in her smaller hands. Booth's even heartbeats did nothing to calm her worried mind.
She was scared. For the second time in her life Booth was in the hospital because of her. The first time he had been blown up by her fridge. The only thing that saved him was the fact that he was reaching for a glass. But even when he was lying in the hospital in pain, he managed to save her from Kenton. He was awake after he was blown up!
And now, after he was shot, he was in a coma with no chance of waking up and she was scared. 'That bullet was meant for me! Why did he jump in front of me?!' Brennan closed her eyes, but the image of Booth lying in a pool of blood haunted her. She could still hear him fall to the pavement, his head hitting the ground with a hard thud.
The doctors were afraid that if he did wake up there would be damage to his brain. They monitored him closely, checking for any aneurisms.
Brennan felt Booth's hand move slightly. She looked up at his face and smiled when he opened his eyes. "Booth," she whispered. "Hi."
Booth turned his head to her voice. He licked his lips. "Who are you?" He questioned.
Brennan's face fell. 'He doesn't remember me.' Booth smiled at her and let out a soft laugh. "Oh my god! Don't do that to me!" She sighed and locked eyes with him. "Do you have any idea what you've been through?"
"Only what I see in your face." Brennan moved and laid her head on his chest, being careful of his wound. "Anybody miss me?" Tempe let out a small giggle.
And that is the end of this very short one-shot…You can blame X-Files for this…watching it gave me too many ideas for B/B!!!!
P.S. God! We still have to wait like 3 ½ months for Bones!!!! WTH!!!
