Disclaimer: Don't own Bones

A/n: Last drabble of this collection. I kinda wanted something that could work with any other in the series and I hope this is it! Much thanks to everyone who read and reviewed through these 100 chapters. I discovered writing something with a self-imposed word count can be incredibly difficult, but rewarding!

Hope you enjoy this last one!

Coming Back Home

"Brennan, just go."

"But it's the middle of the workday—"

"Oh please," Angela raised a hand. "Like you've gotten anything done anyway."

"I have been distracted," Brennan admitted.

"And grumpy," Angela muttered. She gave Brennan her purse and shooed her towards the door. "Go. Daycare can contact me if something comes up."

Without further arguing, Brennan drove to the airport and when she spotted him across the crowded terminal, her stomach clenched. Her steps quickened almost without her permission and then she was in his arms.

"Bones!" He dropped his carry-on and picked up his partner. "W-What are you doing here, babe?"

"Picking you up, of course."

"But you always say … oh," Booth smiled as he figured it out. "You really missed me, huh?"

"No," she mumbled, arms going around him as her face buried against his neck.

He chuckled, fingers winding through her hair. "Mmm, well, is it okay if I missed you?"


"A week is too long to be without you," he murmured into her hair. "God, you smell like heaven." Booth curved a hand over her jaw and leaned back to look at her. "Now, tell me you missed me."


"Because it's the truth," he said happily. "I know you've been cranky this week," Booth teased softly.

Brennan frowned. Someone in the lab had obviously blabbed. "What makes you think that had anything to do with you?"

He gave a charm smile. "Didn't it?"

She raised a haughty eyebrow. "Perhaps." He waited expectantly and a smile tugged at her lips. "Oh, alright. I missed you horribly and you know it."

Booth laughed softly. "Me too, Bones," he whispered against her lips. "Missed you like hell." She sighed, he held her closer. "Only good part of going away is coming back home to you."


Writing drabbles is a lot of fun (I highly recommend it!). This was kinda of an experiment for me and I enjoyed it a lot. If you had fun with me, hope you let me know! :)
