Broken Remnants

Brennan cries, after.

(This isn't the first time he's shouldered her tears; it won't be the last.)

He's coming down, the intensity of orgasm replaced by a cacophony of sound and thought - his staccato heartbeat; his partner's sobs cresting and breaking against him; the weight of all they've lost.

Death has come too soon again, and for the wrong man. Eyes open in the dark, Booth sees red. Man? Vincent was no less a boy than Teddy had been.

"I'd...like to visit Zack this weekend," she whispers, later.

"Sure, Bones." He smooths her hair. "I'll come with you."

Partners. Always.
