I own none of the characters of Bones

Temperance Brennan had just placed her suitcases next to the front door when there was a knock at her door. As Booth taught her, she looked through the peephole and saw him standing outside holding a box of Thai food.

"Booth what are you doing here?" Bones asked opening the door and he flashed her his trademark charm smile.

"I thought you might be hungry."

"You thought right. Come on in." She opened the door and Booth stepped inside. "I had just finished packing and I was going to order myself dinner."

"Well as usual I have impeccable timing." He said cockily and she just rolled her eyes.

Booth had eaten over at Bones' apartment many times so they had a routine set up. Booth took the cartons out of the box while Bones got the plates out of the cupboard. After they dished out the food on their plates, Booth grabbed some beer out of the fridge and then they headed to the living room.

"So…you're all packed huh?" Booth asked looking at the suitcases by the door.

"Yes. I'm all packed."

"Good. That's real good."

"Booth are you okay?"

"Yeah Bones. I'm fine. Why are you asking?"

"You're not acting like yourself."

"I'm fine."

"If you say so." Bones commented and they resumed eating in silence for five minutes until Booth spoke again.

"I'm not fine Bones." He finally admitted.

"What's wrong Booth? Are you okay? Are you experiencing symptoms of your tumor again?" He saw the worry in her eyes and he reached for her hand.

"No tumor Bones. My last scan was clear."

"When was your last scan?"

"A week ago and the doctor called me two days ago with the results."

"So no more hallucinations?"

"Bones I'm fine."

"But you just told me you aren't fine. I don't understand."

"Bones I'm worried about you. I don't want you to go on your trip."

"Why on earth not?" She suddenly sounded furious.

"I've got a bad feeling Bones and I think you should stay home."

"Is your gut telling you that?"

"Yeah Bones my gut is telling me that and you know that my gut is usually right."

"Well your gut is wrong Booth. It's a simple identification mission, something I've done hundreds of times."

"Things are rough over there Bones and…I'm…afraid for you." He told her softly.

"Your concerns are not necessary. I'm not going alone. I will be with a group of people."

"A group of anthropologists. Not exactly the group of people that I would feel safe with."

"You feel safe with me don't you?"

"You're different from the rest of them Bones. Will you stay if I ask you to?"

"No."

"Then I won't ask." He looked at his watch. "I'm going to head out." They both stood and walked to the door.

"Thanks for dinner." Bones said softly.

"Anytime."

"Are you still going to take me to airport in the morning?"

"Are you still going?" She nodded. "Then I'm still taking you."

"Thank you."

"Night Bones."

"Goodnight Booth." They stood there looking at each other for a minute before Booth opened the door and left.

Bones cleaned up their plates, turned off the lights and locked the front door. She turned away and started to walk to her bedroom when she heard another knock at her door. With a sigh she turned around, turned on a light and looked through the peephole and was surprised to see Booth standing there.

"Did you forget something?" She asked opening the door.

"I need to tell you something. Can I come in?"

"Sure." He stepped in and closed the door behind him. "Look Bones there is something that I have wanted to tell you since I woke up from my coma and my gut is telling me that I have to tell you now and you know that I never ignore my gut."

"Booth what is it?" He reached for her hands and took a deep breath.

"I love you Bones and not just as a friend. I'm in love with you."

"Booth I…"

"I know how you feel about love and I don't expect you to say it back. I just wanted you to know that I love you Temperance." He stood there waiting for her to say something or even slap him but to his surprise she did neither. Instead she walked up to him, wrapped her arms around his neck and kissed him.

At first he was too shocked to respond. He had dreamt of this moment for a long time but he never actually thought it would happen so he just stood there like a statue. She pulled away and looked at him with confusion in her blue eyes. "Booth I…I'm sorry. I just thought…"

He never let her finish her sentence. He pulled her back into his arms and kissed her. She ran her fingers through his dark hair while he cupped her face with his hands. They both opened their mouths and inserted their tongues into the new area. They kissed until they could no longer breathe. "I've wanted to do that for months." He whispered breathlessly.

"I think I've wanted you to do that for months." They looked deeply into each other's eyes for a minute before crashing their lips back together. They kissed each other like they have never kissed anyone before. "Make love to me Booth." Bones whispered when the broke apart.

"Really?" Bones took his hand and led him back to her bedroom.

Once they were in her room she released his hand, turned down the bed, pulled some condoms out of her nightstand and lit some candles throughout the room while Booth removed his suit jacket, tie and shirt. Once the candles were lit Booth walked over to Bones and gently pulled her sweatshirt over her head. "So beautiful." He mumbled as his eyes and hands roamed over her chest. A small moan escaped her lips when he cupped her breasts through her bra. He reached around behind her and expertly unfastened her bra slid it from her arms and tossed it to the floor. Lifting her up, he walked a few steps over and deposited her on the bed. He quickly removed his pants and boxers and climbed on the bed next to her.

"What are you smiling out?" He asked her.

"I always assumed that you were well endowed but this is beyond what I ever thought." His penis was the biggest she had ever encountered.

"You've seen me naked before." He was referring to the time when she walked in on him when he was taking a bath.

"You didn't have an erection then."

"So you've thought about me…about us having sex?" She nodded. "Well I hope that the real thing is as good as your dreams." He lifted her hips up and removed her jeans and underwear. He began to place kisses on her foot, ankle, calf, knee and thigh. He continued to kiss until he found her hot wet center. He placed her legs on his shoulders and his lips on her folds causing her to buck against him. "Relax Bones." He whispered before he took her clit in his mouth.

"Boooooth." She moaned. After a few minutes of pleasurable torture he moved his mouth away from her clit and down to her entrance so he could taste her. They both groaned in delight when he placed his tongue inside her. He continued to dart his tongue in and out of her and within minutes a powerful orgasm overtook her body. Booth gently placed her legs back on the bed and kissed his way back up her body, spending a considerable amount of time on her breasts until he found her mouth again where he kissed her slowly and passionately. "That was amazing." She told him when they broke apart.

"You ain't seen nothing yet babe." He reached across her body to the night stand and grabbed a condom.

"Allow me." She took the condom from his hands, opened it and expertly smoothed it over his very erect penis. He spread her legs and with one smooth he pushed himself into her. Before moving he gave her a minute to adjust to him and then he began to thrust slowly inside of her, almost pulling out and then pushing fully back inside of her. The room was filled with the sounds of her moans and his grunts as they both experienced a new level of intimacy. When he felt her walls clench around him he exploded inside of her and a minute later she was moaning out his name as she climaxed.

Once her trembling ceased Booth pulled out of her and rolled over onto his back taking her with him. He placed his hand on her smooth, beautiful ass and they shared soft kisses. "So was it as good as you thought?" He asked her.

"No."

"No?"

"It was much better. Why did we wait so long?"

"Good things come to those who wait."

"Then I'm glad we waited." Bones said with a smile. Booth laughed and kissed her again.

When the alarm went off the next morning Bones quickly extracted herself from the comfort of Booth's arms and turned it off before it woke him up. After the alarm was off she rolled over on her side and looked at the man laying on his back next her. Even though they made love, twice last night she still couldn't believe that it had happened. She had had sex multiple times before but she had never experienced anything so wonderful before.

There was no doubt that Booth was by far the best lover she had ever had. He was sweet, gentle, attentive and he made sure that she was satisfied. Booth had once told her that sex was just sex if you weren't in love with your partner but when you're in love sex turns into something magical. She never believed in magic before but being with Booth changed her mind. What she experienced with Booth last night was in one word…magical and the only explanation was that she was in love with her partner.

Over the past year she had been experiencing some different feelings, feelings that were more than friendship but she wasn't sure that it was love. In all of her adult life she closed her heart off to love because in her past love had hurt her and she was afraid to get hurt again. As she stared at the sleeping man next to her she knew, without a doubt that he would not hurt her. She knew that her heart would be safe if she gave it to Booth. It really helped that that he wasn't pressuring her into saying "I love you" to him. Admitting that she loved him to herself was one thing but admitting it out loud, to him was terrifying to her and she had no idea why.

"See something you like?" His voice brought her out of her thoughts. She blinked and smiled at him.

"Actually I do." She leaned forward and kissed him softly. His arm automatically wrapped around her naked back and he drew her body close to his until her breasts were crushed against his chest.

"Did you sleep well?" He asked when they broke apart. He ran his fingers through her tangled hair.

"Very well. You?"

"I slept great. By the way, do you know that you snore?" She pulled out of his embrace and sat up.

"I do not!" She replied crossing her arms.

"You sound like a train." He said with a smirk and then proceeded to demonstrate how she supposedly snored. She grabbed a pillow and hit him in the face with it. "You wanna go there Bones?"

"Go where?" She asked, hitting him with a pillow again.

"You're going down." He lunged at her and tackled her to the bed, both of them laughing. When their laughing finally died down Booth kissed her softly while reaching for a condom on her nightstand. He broke away long enough to slip the condom on.

"Booth I don't have time. I have a plane to catch and I still have to get a shower and…ohhhhhh." She moaned when he sheathed himself inside of her.

"We always have time for a quickie." He grunted as he began to thrust himself inside of her. She instinctively wrapped her legs around his lower back, urging him to go deeper.

True to his word this love making session was quick and passionate but he followed her into the shower which led to another love making session. They were like high school kids who couldn't keep their hands off of each other and they were loving every minute of it.

When they finally got out of the shower they were officially late. Bones rushed around getting ready and finishing her last minute packing of her toiletries and such while Booth just put on the same clothes he had on the night before and made some coffee. When she was ready she met him in the kitchen and he handed her a travel mug full of hot, steaming coffee. As soon as she took her first sip he pulled her to his chest and kissed her.

"I'm going to miss kissing you so much when you're gone." He mumbled.

"Booth you just started kissing me yesterday."

"Kissing you, touching you, making love to you Bones is like a drug. I've had my first taste and now I'm addicted to you."

"That's absurd."

"No it's not." He leaned in and kissed her again. This kiss was full of love and passion and left her breathless and wanting more.

"Booth…I…we…late. We need to go." She mumbled. When he kissed her she had trouble coming up with a rational thought, something that had never happened to her before.

"Bones please stay." He asked again.

"I can't. I made a commitment that I intend to keep."

"Okay. Come on." He slung an arm around her shoulder and they headed to the front door, only stopping long enough for him to grab her luggage.

Since they were running late he flipped on his siren and sped to the airport getting them in record time. He flashed his FBI credentials and parked in the "Drop Off" section of the airport and escorted her inside.

"You take such advantage of your position." She commented as they waited in line to check her bags.

"I have no idea what you're talking about." He said with a smirk.

"You drove the entire way here with your siren on even though it wasn't an emergency and then you flashed your badge like it was an emergency so you could park in a no parking zone and not have to pay for parking."

"Hey I risk my life everyday for my country. The least I deserve is a few perks now and then."

"No you're just too cheap to pay for parking."

"Not all of us are best selling authors Bones."

"Just admit that you are cheap Booth."

"I didn't want you to be late." Sighing, she shook her head and stepped up to check her bags.

"You have about five minutes ma'am until boarding."

"Thank you." Bones said taking her ticket. She stepped out of line and Booth took her hand and together they walked to the metal detector.

"This is as far as you can go." Bones said.

"Guess again." He flashed his badge and was waved on through. Bones just smiled, placed her purse and carryon on the x-ray scanner and passed through detection. "This time I took advantage of my position."

"I'm glad you did." She whispered linking her small, soft hand in his large, rough one.

When they arrived at her gate they were making the boarding call. As she turned to Booth she felt tears fill her eyes. She knew she was going to miss him terribly. He took her in his arms and hugged her tightly until the second boarding call was made.

"I need to go."

"I know." He made no move to release her.

"Booth." He finally pulled away and looked into her eyes.

"I love you so much Bones." He placed his thumb under her chin, lifted her head and pressed his lips to hers in a soft, sweet kiss. "Be safe and I'll see you in a few weeks." She placed her hand on his unshaven cheek.

"Goodbye Seeley. I'll miss you." She quickly kissed him again, broke away from his embrace and walked away from him before he could see her tears. She turned in her ticket and began to walk down the tunnel to the plane. She was halfway to the plane when she had the strongest desire to share her feelings with him. She turned around and ran back.

"Excuse me, ma'am?" The stewardess said.

"I need one minute." She frantically looked around and found Booth standing by the window, staring at the plane. "Booth." She yelled. He turned in surprise and then rushed over to her.

"Bones are you okay?" He asked, concern filling his brown eyes.

"I love you Booth."

"Bones…" She grabbed his suit jacket, pulled him to her and kissed him hard.

"I love you." There were tears falling from her eyes when they broke apart. "I couldn't leave without telling you."

"I love you too."

"Ma'am if you're leaving you need to come now." The stewardess called.

"I have to go." She pecked his cheek and ran off.

Booth stayed at the airport until he could no longer see her plane. He still was in shock that she told him that she loved him too. He wanted so badly to hear her say those words but he didn't want to push her. He knew how she felt about love and how badly love had hurt her in the past and today she removed the last metaphorical brick from the walls that she had built over her heart and he promised himself that he would never break her heart.

Bones' flight was uneventful. Since she didn't get much sleep the previous night she slept most of the flight, waking up long enough to eat because she knew once she arrived she wouldn't have many good food options. The last portion of the flight was in a plane that Booth referred to as a "puddle jumper." It was very small and it barely fit the nine other anthropologists in it. Bones had worked with some of them before so they spent the short flight reconnecting and getting to know the new anthropologists that had joined them.

Once they landed they gathered up their luggage and boarded the bus that was taking them to their destination. Excitement filled the bus. As much as Bones loved her job at The Jeffersonian she loved the evacuation and identification of ancient remains even more. She figured that she could remain satisfied at The Jeffersonian if she could participate in ancient identification once a year.

When the bus stopped in the road to let a herd of cattle cross a sudden crash of the glass on the door at the front of bus occurred. Five masked and armed men boarded the bus. Before anyone could react one of the men shot the driver and shoved him out the bus and then one of the masked men got behind the wheel and drove the bus.

"SHUT UP!" One of the men yelled. Most of the other anthropologists on the bus with Bones were crying and panicking.

"What do you want?" Bones yelled.

"None of your business. All you need to know is that if we get what we want you all will be fine." One of the poor women in the front of the bus was near hysterics and he hit her in the head with the butt of his gun nearly knocking her unconscious. "I said shut up." The bus immediately went silent except for the occasional muffled sob.

When the bus arrived at their new destination they were all roughly led off the bus and shoved into two small rooms, men in one woman in another. Bones tried the best she could to comfort the scared women around her but she was never good at comforting anyone so she just did the best she could. Occasionally one of the men would come into the room to check on them and they would leave again. Once they were even generous enough to throw some food at them.

After hours of sitting in silence one of their captors came in and grabbed one of the woman and started drag her out of the room. Bones had met her earlier on the plane and she recalled her name was Tracy and she had a husband and two young children. She had no idea what would happen to that poor woman if she was taken out of the room but she couldn't allow anything to happen to Tracy and most importantly she couldn't allow her children to grow up without their mother. She at least had martial arts experience and could defend herself if needed.

"Take me." She said standing up. Their captor ignored her and reached for Tracy. Bones reached out and grabbed his arm. "I said take me."

"You're a feisty one aren't you?" He sneered.

"You have no idea."

"Fine then." As she was drug out of the room into something unknown all she could think about was Booth's gut. It was right.
