Grave Letter

A/N: I got to wondering about the letter Bones wrote while trapped underground with Hodgins. I heard spoilers that we'll be hearing about it in one of the next episodes to air. But, in the meantime, here's my version of events.

Disclaimer: None of the characters are mine, although I really, really, really wish Booth was!


"Where's your letter, Bones?"

"Excuse me?" Brennan glanced up from the microscope at her partner.

"Hodgins wrote a letter to Angela when he was buried alive with you. Where's your letter?"

She rolled her eyes and dropped her eyes to the scope again. "I didn't feel it necessary to leave a last will and testament. Those documents are already in order and have been for as long as we've been partners. It was one of the requisites from the FBI."

"You're lying." Booth's voice was accusing.

"Fine," she muttered, not looking up a second time. "I did write a letter, but I threw it away as soon as we were rescued."

"Still lying, Bones …Who'd you write to?"

"It's none of your business," Brennan informed him in exasperation. "Now will you please stop interrupting so that I can finish this analysis?"

She was surprised when he didn't argue and did as she asked.
