A/N: I wanted to be different... besides, there are six votes in my poll for Bones! Hope you like it!

Horatio stared off into space; he had his glasses off, which is unusual. "Tempe…," Horatio looked at her.

"Horatio, call me Bones."

"Sorry, Bones…," he stared into her eyes. "I think you're beautiful. I've never seen someone quite like you. Your eyes and hair are a perfect blend of brown. You wear the most beautiful shirts. I love you, Bones…"

Bones just stood there silently. She had never heard anyone say that to her, especially 'I love you'. She never would have figured anyone would love her. She was a freak in school. She was outright different! "How could you love me…? I'm a freak…" Horatio moves in closer, hugging her tightly.

"You're not a freak. You're just someone who studies anthropology. I have no problem with that," he smiled sweetly. "I think I love you…," he sighed softly. "Would you like to be a part of our team?"

"Horatio… I'd love to," she smiled. She stared off into space as well, looking at the ocean that surrounded Miami. Everything was calm and quiet. They just stood there, with nothing to say…

A/N: I can continue if you want me to.
