Okay, for those of you who read "A Little Too Late", I came up with this little piece. It's fluffy. No angst. Booth saves Brennan before the Gravedigger can kidnap her and Hodgins.

Disclaimer: Of course, I do not own "Bones". I own whatever little ditties I can come up with, but no owning of the "Bones".

Booth's POV

I was walking out to the Jeffersonian parking lot area to catch up with Bones before she left for her karate class. I wanted to tell her how I felt. Maybe it was because Cam flirting with me all the time just made me think of how badly I wanted Bones, but I felt like I had to tell her. That's why I turned Cam down for dinner at the Diner.

When I got to the parking lot, though, my blood froze. A figure in all black was tasering Bones.

"Bones!" I shout, drawing my weapon from my shoulder holster and aiming it at the figure.

The Gravedigger used Bones as a human shield to get to his van. I started to run after him, but he pushed Bones at me and into my arms. I held her tight to my chest as the van speeds away.

"Booth!" Hodgins' voice came from behind me, and I turned to face him. "What happened? Is Dr. B okay?" he asked.

"The Gravedigger tried to get her. If I hadn't been looking for her, she would be in the bastard's van right now." I was suddenly grateful for my impeccable timing.

"And I'd end up like Matthew Kent. You saved us both, Booth. Thanks."

I nodded. "She needs to get inside. Some place she can rest."

Hodgins agreed, and we carried her into her office and put her down on the couch in there. I explained what happened to Cam, Angela, and Zack.

"Booth, you have to tell her how you feel. As soon as she wakes up," Angela ordered.

"I will," I promised as I wondered if I was that see-through when it came to Bones.

"Good. You better."

I smiled softly and pulled Bones' office chair over to sit with her. I had grabbed some water and ibuprofen, knowing she'd be in pain once she woke up. All I could think about was how lucky it was that I got to her in time.

"Booth?" Bones' voice brought me out of my thoughts.

"Bones, thank God. You scared me, Babe. I thought I was gonna lose you."

She looked at me, and I could see the pain in her eyes. I wordlessly gave her the water and ibuprofen. She took it easily, wincing as the pills went down her throat.

"Thanks, Booth."

I nodded, unsure of what to say.

"What happened?" she, of course, had to ask.

I explained to her exactly what happened, and what could have happened if I hadn't gotten to her.

She hugged me, something I hadn't been expecting, but I took it gratefully. I held her close, refusing to let her go.

"I'm so glad that you're alright, Baby," I whispered.

"Booth, that's the second time you've called me something other than 'Bones' since I woke up. Is everything alright?"

I swallowed hard. "I love you, Bones. I have been in love with you for a long time. And, I'd do anything for you. I hope that you know that."

"I do know that, Booth." She then kissed me.

I grinned against her lips and pulled her closer.
