This is my first attempt to write a fic, and this is as well my first try with an English one, so, please be understanding with the way it has been written, but I'll appreciate every comment about the story.
Warning: This story could contain spoilers from 5th season, so if you don't want to know anything about it, just don't read it. Although I have to say that this is just my own imagination, maybe nothing of this is going to happen at the real show…

Booth was in the hospital bed, with his head in a bandage, without knowing where he was or what time, day and year it was too. He noticed a woman by his side speaking to him, but he wasn't listening to her. And then, like a wave, every memory returned to his head, but, mixed with the marvelous dream he was having a few seconds ago, without being able to recognize the reality of the dream. He just didn't understand why he was in that bed, connected to a lot of noisy machines, if a few moments ago he was at their own nightclub discussing about… wait… pregnancy?
"Who are you?" He asked, making her be in shock a few seconds. "I mean… what Temperance are you? ¿Are you pregnant? Are we married? Do we own a nightclub called The Lab? Are you…"
"Hey… wait, wait a second, take it easy Booth, I don't understand what you're talking about, I just understand the first question, and the answer is no, I'm not pregnant, but hey, slow down, please…"
"I'm sorry, I think I'm a little confused right now."
"Yes, you are, that's for sure. But please, take it easy. First of all, how are you? How do you feel?"
"I'm a little dazed, I'm… I don't know."
"Ok, don't worry. I'm going to call the nurse so she can examine you."
"Ok." He seemed really confused and nervous.
"Booth, relax." She put her hand in his shoulder to make him feel she was there, and that she will be there as soon as the nurses and the doctor determine that he was ok. "We can talk all that you want after they check on you, ok?" She said.
The nurses came after Bones called for them, and examined Booth constants, and a few moments later the doctor came to the room as well, and he determined that Booth would be released and ready to go home in a few days, as soon as they got all the test results and while everything was normal. The doctor told Booth that he was to be patient, because he had just woken a few minutes ago, so he couldn't make any effort and he had to sleep as soon as he felt tired.
After the doctor was gone he was more relaxed, knowing that he should be just a few days more in the hospital. But he had a lot of questions that needed an explanation.
"Bones, could you remember me why I'm here? I'm a little confused right now, I don't understand…"
"You are here because you had an astrocytoma that needed surgery to be removed."
"In English, please…"
"Ok, sorry, you had a benign tumor in your brain that made you hallucinate, you saw a cartoon character in the interrogation room while we were with a suspect, and I told you that there was something wrong in you. I took you here and the docs determine that you had a tumor that needed to be removed, although it was a benign one. That's why you're here. Don't you remember any of this?"
"Yes, I remember, but somehow it seems like it was ages ago…"
"Booth, the other question you made me earlier… I don't understand why were you asking if we are married, or the other one about a nightclub… I think you had a dream while you were in the coma, and maybe it has been a very real one. What do you remember about yourself?"
"I'm an FBI agent, that's for sure, but I have a memory about own a nightclub called The Lab… but I also remember your lab, and they are just the same place, and that could not be possible…"
"Booth, you must rest, maybe everything will fit to you after you sleep a few hours. You have been through cerebral surgery four days ago, been in a coma for these four days, I think that these reasons could made you confuse the dreams with the reality, but I'm sure that everything will fit again to you if you rest. Maybe it will take some time to fix everything, but don't worry, everything will be normal again soon, I'm sure."
"I suppose you're right."
"Of course I'm right. Just try to sleep. We can talk again when you feel up to it, ok?"
"Ok." He said, with not much conviction in his voice. "Bones…"
"Will you be here when I wake up?"
"Of course, don't worry, I'll be here all the time."
"You're welcome. Now sleep."
Booth closed his eyes and slept for five or six hours, and in this time Bones talked with Angela, Rebecca, Deputy Director Cullen, and Cam. Angela and Cam came to see Booth, but while he was sleeping they stayed out of the room with Bones. She didn't tell them about the previous conversation with Booth, she just thought it wasn't necessary to worry them because he probably would be ok when he wakes up. Rebecca wanted to come too, but Parker was at school and while Booth was asleep he couldn't talk to him and she thought it would be a better idea come to the hospital when he was awake. Cullen told her the same as Rebecca, he will come to see Booth when he was awake, and he was sure that she would care for him the best way.
Then Bones sat in the room besides Booth and without make any noise, she opened her laptop and started a new chapter of her book.
A few hours later the doctor came again and found Bones out of the room talking by her cellular with her father. She quickly hung up after say goodbye to him.
"Hello Dr. Stark. I'd like to talk to you about some things, if you have a moment."
"Of course, just let me check Booth a second and I'll be with you." He entered the room and checked the machines, the report of the nurses about temperature, the blood pressure, and other results. Then he met Bones out of the room.
"Well, it seems that everything is ok. What do you want to talk about, Dr. Brennan?"
"When he woke up today, he was a little confused about what reality was and what a dream, like he couldn't distinguish between them. He was asking me questions with no sense, at least to me. He remember who is he, but he seems to be mixing the real him with the dreamed one. I've told him that he must relax and rest, that everything will fit to him after sleep, because this could be due to the surgery and the coma, and that perhaps he will need a few days to be able to separate the reality of the dream. Am I correct?"
"Yes, I think so. I'm sure this is happening to him as a result of the surgery. I think it's normal that after this kind of surgery, and the first time he wakes up, he must be confused, because his brain isn't working full yet. But it's a matter of time, and not too much time in fact, that he recovers all his brain functions. Don't worry for this, it isn't going to be a problem."
"Thank you very much Dr. Stark, I'm a lot more relaxed now. I don't know too much about how the human brain works, and I appreciate your explanations and support a lot."
"You're welcome, Dr. Brennan. Anytime you need me, just call me. Now I have to visit other patients. Good bye."
"Good bye." She said to the doctor as he left her in front of the door. She came in and sat in the uncomfortable chair for the visits and stared at him for some minutes. Then she leaned her head on the bed and fell asleep.
