Connor Temple had seen a Tyrannosaurus in person. He'd faced down velociraptors. He'd been held at gunpoint, kidnapped (multiple times, he really had to stop making a habit of that), and had nearly been consumed by a permian era worm. Yet somehow, he didn't think he'd ever been this nervous before. Talking to women in general made Connor nervous, but this? Whole other story. This wasn't just any woman. This was the one he'd fallen in love with, despite how hard he'd tried not to. Oh, he'd been burned by Caroline. And a part of him had still carried that flame for Abby. But loving and being loved back was different. He'd had that with Kim. And it was possible he'd lost it for good.
He couldn't entirely be blamed for that, though. The last few weeks had seen him in a dark place. For a while, he hadn't been happy unless there'd been a drink in his hand. And he hated that about himself. Too much like his father and he'd sworn he wouldn't be that man. But without it, he was just a depressed geek holed up in his room repairing people's computers and talking to a dinosaur. But he'd seen what the future looked like. Oh, people would tell him it was just one possible future, or that it could be prevented. But all he'd seen was a beautiful young woman he couldn't ever have, because if he did, he'd lose the one person who meant everything to him.
And yet he'd gone and lost her anyway. And it was killing him.
So he showed up at the sandwich place at six, looking pathetic as he waited for someone who, he had to admit, he honestly couldn't blame if she didn't show up. He ordered a lemonade and found a seat, just waiting. Anything more than that and he'd probably get sick and that wasn't the way he wanted to see Kimberly again.
