Too much alcohol. Yet still – too little. He wasn't sure if he should be glad or not.

He turned around and looked at the half-lit neon. A sudden wave of disgust washed over him.

No. He won't go inside. He felt he wouldn't be going inside any time soon.

Oh, well.

It's all for the best. After all, he did promise Pops he'd quit gambling anyway.

tbc, please review.

AN: New year, new fandom, new story :) I'm currently re-watching Bones and, well, my muse is ...persistent :) Thus I welcome you all to this little series of fill-in scenes, character's studies, my impressions etc. about Bones episodes. At least one drabble per episode, usually more. Updated daily. So far season one is done. Hope you;ll enjoy it. I'm a bit nervous, it's been a while since I posted multi-chaptered story.

Leave some feedback :) It makes my day ;)
