Disclaimer: I don't own!
The night before Booth was supposed to pick her up for their "honeymoon", Angela was over to help her pack. "Ok, you have to dress to impress."
"I am not sure how much dressing I will need to be doing, Angela. At least, if I had things my way."
"Brennan, have you really not done anymore than makeout with Booth? I don't know how you can stand it!"
"We've talked a lot in the last few months."
"And… I want to move our relationship forward. I think I'm ready, and I know Booth is ready. Its just scary because the idea of true love just seems so new to me. But I think its really what I've always wanted."
Angela smiled and hugged her, "Oh, hon, I wanted you to find love so much! And I always knew it would be with Booth. I think everyone did," Angela said, digging through Brennan's "specialty" drawer. "This is what I'm talking about!" She said, pulling out a sheer babydoll style lingerie set. "Ah, this still has the tags on it!"
Brennan smiled. "That is a recent purchase, yes."
"Nice… wow, you are going to knock Booth's gaudy socks off!"
"Angela, Booth has had sex before, with attractive women. I don't see why I will knock his socks off as you say, more than any other woman."
"You have got to be kidding, right?" Angela asked, staring blankly at her. "Booth has been in love with everything about you! I've seen the way he looks at you, follows your movement with his eyes. And the way you look at him. There's no way you two won't have chemistry in the bedroom!"
Brennan had to agree, Angela had a point. They had chemistry, and she was going to prove it!
Brennan opened the door almost the second Booth knocked on it. Her bags were all packed and by the door, and she had taken extra time that morning getting ready. Her bangs were sideswept and she lightly curled her hair, giving it a little volume. She put on a low plunging but classy dark violet dress. Booth was wearing a tshirt and jeans, and noticed her appearance as soon as he entered. "Wow, Bones, you look good!" She wrapped him in a hug before pushing her lips to his. They kissed for several minutes, before Booth said through his puckered lips, "Bones, we'll miss our flight…"
At the cabin, in the middle of nowhere, they unloaded their bags at the door stop. They spent the evening at the cabin cooking dinner together, and drinking some wine. "Booth, I am ready to take it further if you are," Bones said, sipping her wine across from him.
"I suppose that is why we are here after all," Booth said, with a sly smile and a wiggling of eyebrows.
"I mean more than sexually," she said leaning closer to him and smiling.
Booth leaned in close to her and smiled, "Do you believe in soulmates?"
Bones laughed and just shrugged her shoulders. "You say soulmates. I say compatible partnership."
Booth raised his glass, "Here's to the MOST compatible partnership, at work and at play!"
Bones clinked her glass with his and finished off her wine. As she stood, she started walking down the hall toward the bedroom. "Hey, where are you going?" he called out to her.
She turned to face him, smiling devilishly. She reached behind her and unzipped her dress, letting it fall to the floor, as she continued walking to the bedroom.
Booth watched her the whole way, and then quickly ran down the hall after her, finding her already posed on the bed in her underwear. "Wow, Bones…"
She beckoned him to her, and removed his shirt over his head. Running her hands down his hard chest and abs, she had to bite her lip to control herself. "Booth, do you have any idea what a flawless male physique you have?"
Booth was already rendered speechless, and his eyes had not left her body since he had walked in the room. "You too, Bones."
"I have a flawless male physique?" she asked.
"Yes…I mean, no. I mean, you're just flawless, Bones. And beautiful," he spoke softly, lifting her head to his and kissing her deeply, and both of them, for the first time ever, felt like the world had turned itself right side up, and all was as it should be.
After a long time of just exploring each other's bodies, and after many exclamations and professions of love and happiness, the two partners became partners in a different sense, and never turned back.
