Re: Kit & Tory: Area 52
Tory laughed again, because the dry humor was something he greatly enjoyed, probably because his own could be a little raucous, and he could never pull off the sort of straight-faced delivery that made dry humor really work for people like Kit. But, he'd gotten a laugh, and that was what he was after. Kit had a nice laugh. "He's kind of lazy, and he really could be better about seeking out the funding," he admitted. "He's still kind of learning how all of this is supposed to work and wondering if he might not be better off just hooking up with a university and hunkering down in a lab for the next forty years on someone else's dime."
Tory sipped his coffee before turning his gaze back to Kit. He was an observational creature: no side-eyes or shy glances, usually quite direct in his gaze and his study of others. Always taking everything in. "I think that's a point in your column, not being a fan of murder. I'd be a little worried about anyone who was, though there's the whole true crime set, and I guess they're not too bad as long as they're not looking for tips. What are you a fan of? You've got plants on lockdown, tea and cardigans. What do you do for fun?"
