Booth grumbled softly as the pull of the morning drew him out of sleep. It was a chilly morning and he really didn’t want to leave the warmth of his bed and the wonderful woman in it. Bones was curled up in the circle of his arms, her nose pressed into his chest to ward off the cold. He smiled at how sweet and soft she looked in sleep - it never failed to amaze him that she let him be with her this way.
He let his hands drift over her back, sliding beneath her camisole to touch the warm skin, fingers trailing down her spine, finding each vertebra. He knew all their names now – yet another remarkable result of having her in his life. A slow smile spread over his face as he remembered her instructing him on the names of the bones as he had kissed each one. His body began to respond as he remembered what had happened next.
Brennan woke to the feel of Booth’s large, gentle hands caressing her back and his erection pressed against hip. “Good dreams?” she teased, rolling her hips against him.
“Mmm, good reality,” he replied, slipping his hands beneath the waistband of the boy short panties she had worn to bed and cupping her ass, pulling her up against him. He bent his head and captured her lips for a slow, sensual kiss.
“Do we have time for this?” Brennan murmured against his lips, before pushing away from him and rolling over to look at her alarm clock. Booth wasn’t having it, snaking his arms around his girlfriend and pinning her against his chest.
“We’ll make time.” He nibbled at her earlobe as his fingers teased over her cotton-covered nipples. Spooned behind her, Booth’s hands were free for languorous exploration of his lover’s body and he treasured the soft sighs that escaped her each time he found his way to a sensitive spot. She relaxed against him, one hand snaking back and running over the firm muscles of his back and rear as he let his hand dip lower, gently encouraging her body to prepare itself for him.
They undressed under the covers, then Temperance craned her neck for a kiss as Booth urged her leg back over his, opening her up so he could guide himself inside. They made love lazily in the dim morning light, sharing their body heat in the cocoon of fabric that kept them in their own world, apart from the breaking day.
Temperance let her orgasm steal over her slowly, thoroughly enjoying every pulse and throb of pleasure. Booth joined her in bliss moments later, drawing her hips tightly into the fold of his body and holding her there as they basked in the sweet afterglow.
“BLRP! BLRP! BRLP!”
Booth reluctantly let go of Brennan and rolled to his side of the bed, slamming his palm against the rioting alarm clock. Brennan swung her legs off the bed, padding naked towards the bathroom glancing over her shoulder as she went. “You make the coffee while I shower. I’ve got a lot of paperwork to do this morning.”
As he heard the shower switch on, Booth flopped back on the bed, trying to gather the energy to do as his partner ordered.
Brennan stepped out of the shower, wrapping fluffy white towels around her hair and body. She went to the sink and opened the medicine cabinet, extracting her moisturizer.
As she applied the lotion over her arms and face, her gaze absently traveled over the shelves. Even though she had been living with Booth for over a year, it still sometimes struck her how much things had changed for her. Her Kiehl’s products nestled between Booth’s shaving cream and hair gel were a visible example of how seamlessly their lives had fit together.
She no longer came home to an empty apartment and an empty bed. She no longer spent long nights and weekends locked away in the lab because there was nothing else to occupy her time. Instead, she spent her weekends with Booth and Parker, watching soccer games and making macaroni and cheese. She had finally let herself open up to someone and now she was reaping the reward, a life that was not only purposeful, but full of love and happiness with a wonderful man.
Her reverie was interrupted by the man in question, as Booth rapped his knuckles loudly against the bathroom door.
“Hey Bones, hurry up. We’ve got a case.”
Brennan grinned. She may have changed, but some things never would.
The End. Thanks for reading and reviewing!
