Rating: K

Spoilers: None.

Pairing: BA

Disclaimer: I don't own them, or the song.

Summary: You say it best, when you say nothing at all.

The smile on your face lets me know that you need me.

There's a truth in your eye, saying you'll never leave me.

The touch of your hand says you'll catch me, if ever I fall.

You say it best, when you say nothing at all.

Alex looked up to Bobby from across their desks. He smiled at her. It amazed her that in the midst of this ocean of paperwork that they had been doing for hours he still looked as if he could tackle the world. Or her. Either way she approved. There was a gleam in his eye.

"Penny for your thoughts?' He said so only she could hear.

"Just thinking about how good you look." She responded equally as quiet.

It was a thing that they had mastered a long time ago. They didn't need to use words most of the time, but when they did they talked in subdued voices leaning into each other across their desks. The bullpen was used to their idiosyncrasies by now.

He gave her a wink and then nodded his head towards the elevator. Lunch? His expression read as he stood.

Alex looked back. I thought you'd never ask. She closed her computer and stood up as well.

They headed to the elevator without a word. As they got on he put his hand on the small of her back, letting her go first.

Jimmy Deakins watched this all transpire and couldn't figure out how they had conversations without words. He wasn't sure he wanted to.

Fin.
