Who: Mandy and Drew
When: Saturday Evening
Where: Drew's Place, Chinatown
What: First time they've actually talked in awhile.
Rating: TBA - language? Maybe?
Drew had spent a long time debating whether or not he was going to send the Chinese Mandy had requested. She had said she'd wanted her space and the least he could do was give her that. Of course, the part of him that wanted to give her what she wanted was at conflict with itself. She wanted time but she wanted Chinese and Drew, for what it was worth, wanted to give her what she wanted. She'd bloody well had that affect on him since she'd first flirted with him at that bloody party. Of course, he really couldn't complain. He was growing rather attached to the way she smiled at him ... which was a horrible idea because she more than likely hated him, but there was little he could do about it now.
To say he was surprised when she asked to come over would have been a serious understatement. He'd expected her to tell him to piss off, which was why he hadn't bothered to send a note. He hadn't been expecting a response. As he waited for her, sitting in the window with it opened wide on the street below him, he was annoyed with himself. He was nervous. Nervous. If there was one thing Drew didn't do, it was nervous. He couldn't even remember an assignment that had made him nervous and now the idea of facing Mandy made his palms clammy.
Taking a last drag off his smoke, he flicked it out the window. It was one of those habits he loved to quit. He'd quit when a case was over and then quit again when the next case was over. This case ... this case, he needed a damn life time supply of nicotine. Pushing away from the window seat, he made an attempt to go to the kitchen, but the sound of a knock on the door redirected him. He wasn't expecting anyone else, so he wasn't surprised to find Mandy on the other side. Offering her a small smile, and said, "Hey."
