Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ

David stood in the warm California sun and let out a long breath, eyes gazing out over the pristine serenity of the perfectly manicured golf course. This was what he needed - a relaxing day spent not thinking about his FBI work. Just a simple friendly game of golf.

"So, are you going to hit that ball any time soon?" Colby's wry voice piped up behind him. "Or were you trying to Jedi mind trick it into the hole?"

David stepped away from the tee and turned to his partner.

"I think the only mind trick was you developing a sudden cough during my last putt," he joshed.

Colby gave him a flustered gesture and a wide-eyed look. "You think that was on purpose? Dude, my throat was just dry." He gestured to the tee. "So let's finish up these last few holes and get a beer. What do you say?"

"I say..." David settled in at the tee and swung. He stood and watched alongside Colby as the ball sailed straight down the fairway. "It looks like you're buying."

"It looks like you're going to birdie this hole," Colby said, clapping David on the back. "Let's go."

As they walked over to the golf cart, David heard his phone ringing.

He woke with a start realizing it was the phone on his nightstand ringing.


"David, it's Olivia."

David lay back against the pillows as the pleasant vision of his dream was rapidly replaced by the memory of his friend being led away in handcuffs the day before.


"Yeah, I was calling to see if you were up to coming down to the center today. We could sure use you."

"Not today, sorry. It's just..." He fought to keep the emotion choked down. "It's just a really bad day..."

I had a really bad day yesterday.

But I confess the idea for this fic came days ago so I can't claim it was inspired by my unfortunate day/weekend/year/life.

For those who remember Tamara Taylor as Olivia, she's now a regular on Bones. She's one of those actresses you know you've seen before. In my case I remembered her from Party of Five and Serenity as well as my favorite show ever – Miracles. As much as I am happy to see the actress working regularly, I selfishly hope they write her off Bones. Nothing against her, I just don't like how she was written in and what they did with her. I agree the show needed a soft tissue person since they always seemed to be rushing to get rid of all that evidence in the past, but that person didn't have to have a story line with Booth. /headdesk/

If you missed it before, I am about to embark on writing the Bones fandom. Let's just say you won't see much Cam in it...

FYI for anyone who missed my end of month Journal Review (which would be zero of you but still...) I did it, LJ just hasn't let me post it. Grr...

Of course, I am writing this Confession with the assumption it will let me post this... /sigh/

Re: Confession
First, *hugs* for you having such a bad day, etc... I'm sorry, hun, and I hope things are/will look up. If you need anything, email me.

Second, THANK YOU!! I've been trying to figure out who the heck Cam was and where I'd seen her before. I remember her from Miracles and Numb3rs now. And, I agree, Cam is not my favorite character, but since I like just started watching the show I don't think I've got the right to complain.

Third, I *headdesk* wrote a Bones fic. I'm completely insane apparently. It is here, if you are interested.

Fourth, I did miss the update, but noticed that LJ has been a bitch lately.
