They clung together, their eyes closed, chests heaving.

"I'm quite impressed Booth." Brennan said in awe.

He opened his eyes, and looked at her. "Impressed with what?"

"I knew you would be good in bed, but I had no idea you would be THAT good." She said simply.

He sighed.

Something had happened while they were in each others arms, surging together. One minute they were having sex, the next they were making love.

It kinda freaked him out, he knew he was serious about her, but the depth of the connection.. He had never experienced that before.

"I hate to tell you this Bones, because you're probably going to run out of here and board the next plane for Guatamala, but it's never been like that for me before.. That was making love." He waited, for something, anything.

"Are you sure?" Brennan asked slowly.

He nodded. "Yeah, Bones, I mean, I am pretty good, and you, wow, you really are too, but that last time.. That was more, you know?"

Brennan considered. "I did notice a strange sense of belonging." She studied his face carefully. "Does that mean you love me?"

Booth half-grinned. "Yeah, well, I think I knew that already, but.."

She slapped him on the arm. "You could have told me!"


"Then I wouldn't have had to ask you all those questions for my story, I would have had first hand experiences to spice up my novel!"

Booth chuckled. "But that was kinda fun though, answering the questions, having you search my place, I mean, you might never have known about Jessica."

Brennan frowned. "Who is Jessica?"

Booth laughed louder. "You didn't find her? There is a Jessica blow up doll in my closet, left over from Charlie's stag party!"

Brennan smacked him again. "She must be uninflated, or I'm SURE I would have found her."

"Ow! She is.." Booth winced.

Brennan smiled. "I'll have a look at her later."

"Can you answer something for me?" Booth asked slowly.

"Yes. What?"

"What does it mean that you arn't halfway home by now?"

Brennan shrugged. "Maybe I need further convincing that that was making love."

"Maybe you love me?" Booth interpreted.

Brennan smiled. "Maybe."
