Chapter five: The end of the story.

He shut the door behind them with his foot, and took her in his arms. Nuzzling her ear he whispered, "I paid the maintenance guy ten bucks and promised to get his copy of your book signed." He kissed her neck, just below her jaw.

She sighed and closed her eyes., enjoying the sensation she'd only dreamed about.

"I didn't mean to put that bit about your birthmark in there." She said quietly. "It just fit. I can have my editor remove it if you want…"

He unbuttoned her shirt. "No, its ok. As long as I'm actually getting to do what everyone thinks I have been doing, I don't mind. Although could we print one book without it for my mom?"

She nodded and leaned forward to kiss him at the base of his neck. "Anything."

He pulled her towards the bedroom.

"Time to put those imaginings of your to the test Dr. Brennan."

She wrapped her arms around his neck, and pressed against him. "I agree Agent Booth."

He lowered her to the bed, ripping off her shirt and covering her cleavage with feathery kisses. "That's Special Agent Booth."

She breathed deeply as she unzipped his pants. "I agree. Very Special." She leaned forward and gave him a tiny kiss on his birthmark….

"I propose a toast." Booth said, sitting on the bed naked except for his glass of wine.

Brennan giggled and held her glass up. "To what?"

"To us. To the success of your latest book. And to that wickedly delightful brain of yours."

She smiled, their glasses clinked.

"Now, let's get down to business. Would you marry me, Temperance Brennan? Or at least consider a very long engagement?" He held his breath.

She looked at him, happiness in her eyes. "You'd marry me without me saying I love you?"

He smiled and ran his thumb along her jaw.

"I know you love me. I just don't know if you know it yet. But yes, I would."

She kissed his thumb. "Yes."

"Yes to what?"

"All of the above."

They were late for work on Monday morning, but the shiny engagement ring on Brennan's hand was all the explanation they needed.

Angela pulled Cam aside and whispered in her ear. "I can't WAIT for the next book to come out, it's going to be HOT!"

Cam crossed herself, eyes wide.
