For as long as she'd been on Galador, Rory had entertained thoughts about a romantic relationship with only one person. She buried herself in study, work and her books for a good long while. Until the mention of a blind date came up on the network. Could she? Would she? After (briefly) talking to her mom about it, she decided that she would. She was glad that she got herself 'out there'. She could over-analyse what she liked about Freddie until the cows came home, but she decided to shut her brain off where that was concerned and just let things flow naturally. He'd suggested that they'd meet before the official blind date and she was glad that he had. Who needed the pressure of a prearranged date when they could do their own thing?
OK. So. She stressed about the outfit. She freaked out about going on a date at all. She was still giddy with excitement. BUT. She got there. She waited for Freddie outside of the coffee shop just shy of 4PM, wearing a black mini-skirt, a semi-see-through peasant top and a dark blazer. She was sitting outside on a park bench with a book propped open in her lap, deeply engrossed in what she was reading.
Some things never change.
