Who: Roger Davies and Penny Clearwater
When: Monday morning
Where: Her shop
What: Sometimes people need books for stuff.
As excited as he was for the season to start, Roger knew he'd be fighting back a weird sense of dread all week. God, why couldn't it have been the Arrows, or the Cannons. Someone they could win against, someone that wouldn't injure half his team in the very first match. A team that wouldn't look at Roger like he had a humongous target on his back.
He tried not to think about it. Instead, he was going over to Penny's this morning. The team was running longer practices this week, but they didn't start so early. So he had time to drop by and get a book, and he supposed he ought to apologize. Maybe. Although calling Penny bossy and meddling was entirely accurate and she knew it.
He popped into Once Told Tales but didn't immediately see Penny. There was a blonde, bookish girl stacking books onto the shelves behind the till, so he leaned against the counter until she turned and noticed him. "Oh, how can I help you?" She adjusted her glasses and it made him smile. Cute nerdy girl in Penny's shop. Of course. "I'm looking for a book," Roger said, and the girl just looked at him expectantly. Like everyone came here for books. "Is your boss around? Need her expertise. And possibly lecturing abilities."
