Seely Booth stood under the hot spray of the shower, letting it warm his skin and seep into his sleep-stiffened muscles to relieve the tension from his nightmares and relax him. He took a deep breath and let it out slowly, tipping his head back into the spray...
...and jumped and smacked his head into the showerhead when the door to the bathroom opened.
To his amazement, his exclamation didn't deter his partner Dr. Temperance Brennan from coming the rest of the way into the bathroom. "What's 'ow'?" she asked.
"I hit my--What are you doing in here?" he demanded.
"I just need to brush my teeth--"
"Bones! I'm in the shower, and these aren't exactly opaque shower doors," he indicated the doors with a repeated wave of his hand over them.
She turned toward him, then, instantly making him regret his words. "I see the complete male form on nearly a daily basis, Booth. You would be no different. Besides, all I can see through those doors is a skin-toned silhouette and two dark patches, which I assume is your head and pubic hair."
"Gee--Bones!" His hands immediately went to cover his crotch.
"Okay...now...I only see the darkness on top of your head, so I can only assume you've covered your pubic region in embarrassment, which, as I said, is really unnecessary."
His anger warring with embarrassment, now, Seely turned his back to her. "All right...Bones? I want you to listen to me."
"You're going to leave this bathroom and find something fun to do out in the room until I finish my shower."
"But, my tee--"
"Bones, not listening...." he said in a warning tone.
"You will be if you don't get out. NOW."
"You're being ridiculous."
"I'm leaving, Grumpy the...Giant."
"Wait....What?" But she had already closed the door.
