Who: Barbara Gordon and Xander Harris
What: Dinner, talking, trading information (Sorta a date but given circumstances maybe not)
When: January 3rd, evening.
Where: Babs' Apartment
Why: Because they need to talk and she promised dinner
Status: Closed, incomplete.
The kids were out, some of them anyway. Barbara was pleased by the fact that some of her team... it was still weird calling them her team - had taken advantage of the training time, it was close to what she was planning on running later this week, but still this one seemed more like fun than anything else, and didn't they need that sometimes? It was enough to make her smile, bringing a bowl in from the kitchen and putting it on the table.
She looked over at Xander. A lot had gone on in the last few days, between new years and Buffy's disappearance and rescue... Of course there was even more going on with Xander, but all Barbara knew was that someone the people in Xander and Buffy's group of friends group knew had arrived. It wasn't that hard to spot. When the majority of the group started commenting to a newbie's first post, it was a pretty good indication. This dinner... was it a date? She wasn't sure. All the same she had to at least try and make things lighter. She was still kicking herself that she hadn't pushed Buffy to do comms coverage... And on top of that it seemed - from the message boards that they'd gotten even more arrivals today.
"You know," she said it with a smile, "I remember games of tag with Dick and Jason on the roofs back home? Before the chair?" she balanced the bowl on her lap and put it on the table, finally everything looked ready. "Whenever you want to eat, we're ready."
