Brotherly Love?

By wired2damoon

A/N: Hello all! This is my very first Bones fic so I hope I don't disappoint! Just a few things you should know: 1) As I'm Irish there will be some spelling/grammar differences in my writing but I'll try to make it universal! 2) I'm very busy with exams and college applications so I probably won't be able to update as much as I'd like to, I hope you all understand! That's all for now, hope you enjoy! wired2damoon

Disclaimer: Ah I always forget about these! Okay, no Bones material belongs to me! It all belongs to the wonderful FOX Network, sigh…

THIS FIC IS NEWLY EDITED TO FIT THE EVENTS OF SEASON 3.

BASED IN EARLY SEASON 4

PROLOGUE

"Aww…c'mon Bones, one cup of coffee isn't going to kill you! A thirty minute trip to the Diner and the next thing ya know you're back in your office sipping a nice hot cup of coffee goodness", the dreamy voice of Special Agent Seeley Booth floated around Dr. Temperance Brennan's office irritably.

"Booth! I told already told you! I don't have time to go to the diner! I have a mountain of paper-work to get through from our last case…which by the way I believe you do too", the anthropologist replied matter-of-factly.

"Yeah I know I do Bones, but its still gonna be there in half an hour! C'mon, come to the diner with me…please?" he asked, turning on his 'award-winning' charm smile.

Rolling her eyes to the ceiling Brennan sighed in defeat. She knew he would just keep annoying her like some over-active four year old if she didn't comply. So for once she took the easy way out.

"Alright fine Booth, one cup of coffee then its straight back to the Jeffersonian were I can get some substantial work done!" she snapped as she stood up and reached for her coat, completely unaware of her partner engaging in a quite elaborate victory dance (which looked like an imitation of clucking headless chicken) behind her back.

"That's my girl!" Booth muttered under his breath, not wanting her to hear or else he would surely feel the wrath of her lecture on 'alpha-male tendencies such as supposed ownership of a female'.

"Let's go", he replied, this time loud enough so she could hear him, whilst stepping forward and laying the palm of his hand on the small of her back and stirring her out the door, completely ignoring her mutters of protest.


"What did I tell ya Bones…this is heaven…" Booth moaned with pleasure as he took a large gulp of coffee and a bite of his apple pie.

Brennan shifted slightly in her chair, silently hoping that he did not offer some as Sweets' voice rang in her ears.

"Booth's constant efforts to persuade you to enjoy fruit pie could be interpreted as a kind of seduction".

Coughing lightly and ignoring her thoughts Brennan responded, "well if this is indeed Heaven then the Bible seriously does leave a lot to be desired", not looking Booth in the eye and covering her smirk with her cup.

"Its just an expression, Bones!" Booth muttered, trying very hard not to roll his eyes at this genius's lack of knowledge of social expressions.

Brennan sat quietly nursing her coffee as Booth finished off his pie. It had been two months since the whole escapade with Zack and everyone was still on edge, they had had a number of cases since then, and Brennan was running through a number of Grad Students which didn't help her mood lately. She felt her mind wander as she sat at ease in the familiar diner.

Seeley Booth watched with silent awe at his partner. She seemed to have gone off in a daze, obviously deep in thought. He couldn't help himself but to wonder what on earth might be going on in that brilliant mind of hers, but unfortunately he couldn't ponder for too long.

Suddenly out of nowhere a strong pair of arms wrapped themselves around Booth's neck and squeezed him tightly.

Booth's eyes widened as he glanced over at Temperance who seemed in a trance, merely staring his way.

"Well if it isn't Special Agent Seeley Booth", a voice whispered into his ear, the breath warm as it connected with his skin.

Seeley's reflexes were right on target as with one smooth movement he had stood up, clutched the arms that held him captive and twisted them behind the person's back, resulting in their face being smashed down onto the table.

Brennan gaped at the occurrence and stood up also, glaring down at the man.

"Woah…lil bro. I see you still have those awesome moves…" spoke the man, his breath coming out in gasps.

Seeley's eyes widened as he instantly let the man go.

The intruder turned to face Booth and shook his head lightly. "Typical Seeley, always on guard".

"Jared?" was all Booth managed to say before his older brother engulfed him in a massive hug.

Brennan smirked and relaxed slightly as she watched the events unfold. So this was Booth's older brother.

"Jared man, what the hell are ya doing here?" asked Booth slapped his brother on the back as they broke apart.

Jared Booth frowned. "Now is that any way to greet your favourite brother?" he teased.

"You're my only brother Jared…" Booth replied rolling his eyes and suddenly connecting with Bones'.

Jared turned and smiled at the beautiful woman that was watching them.

"Well bro aren't ya gonna introduce me to this wonderful woman?" he asked turning to his brother and motioning to Brennan.

"Yeah sorry Bones, uh this is my brother Jared, Jared this is Dr. Temperance Brennan, my partner", Booth mumbled his palm rubbing the back of his neck nervously.

Brennan, noticing this frowned but shook Jared's hand in what she hoped was a friendly manner.

"So this is the famous Bone Lady? Well its very nice to meet you Dr. Brennan", Jared smiled as their hands connected. Brennan couldn't help but notice that Booth wasn't the only member of his family with a 'charm smile'.

"Its nice to meet you too Jared", she smiled back feeling his eyes absorbing her.

Seeley watched this interaction uneasily for a moment. Time seemed to stand still as his brother and his partner began to make small talk.

'I don't like the look of this' he thought to himself before hurriedly ushering Jared to sit down beside him.

He sat beside Bones instead.
