[Harold/Rhonda] Choked Up
Title: Choked Up
Character(s): Rhonda Wellington Lloyd, Harold Berman
Summary: Harold catches Rhonda off-guard.
Prompt(s): "I won't apologize."
Word Count: 143
"I won't apologize," he said stubbornly.
Rhonda glared across the table at Harold, chewing her food in what she thought was an intimidating fashion. Harold stared right back at her. Her cheek twitched in annoyance. She hated it when people stood up to her.
"Let me finish," he continued impatiently. He waited for her to interrupt, like she always did. When she didn't (only dabbed her lips delicately with a napkin--he knew better than to think of her as "delicate"), he went on.
"I won't apologize, because if I hadn't done it, you wouldn't be here with me."
Rhonda almost choked on the food she was chewing, but she was refined enough not to show it. She was also smart enough to know not to look up into his eyes; she didn't want him to see the tears that had formed there.
