sneezing and other fits
"You didn't have too." He coughed then.
"Yeah, I did. That other stuff is no help at all." Olivia picked up at croissant then and pulled it a part to eat as she sat down with her coffee.
"Syd, might never forgive you." She was against that sort of thing in the house, according to Eric.
"Well, she's not the one sick. You are." She looked at him blankly.
About then Ravi came up from the basement, looking so sleepy. He poured himself a cup of coffee and sat down next to her. Of course, she had to mess with his messy hair.
"Where were you?" He winced.
"Just the grocery store." She shrugged.
He yawned then and sipped his black coffee. He'd forgotten the creamer and made a face then.
"Oh," he said as if he'd forgotten something else too as he went to pour in the fat-free creamer. "I saw something interesting last night at work. Liz was there with some guy that Syd knows. Remember, that Kip guy she was going to protect Syd from?"
"Well, they seem to know each other quite a lot." Ravi was more awake now.
"Maybe she kidnapped him all this time and had her way with him." Olivia smiled as she took another sip of coffee.
"She's just crazy." Eric said as he studied the box of meds.
"Would you just take 2 and see what happens." Olivia promised him he'd feel better.
He managed two, down with his coffee then. Of course, a few minutes later he was sneezing and ready to blow his nose.
"I'll keep them for you if that would help." She gave him one sheet of little red pills. "Just get some rest."
He nodded as if he would and he went back to bed.
"You're not going to get him in trouble with Syd, are you?" Ravi looked at her then.
"No. I just think he needs to try to knock this thing in the butt, before it gets worse." She glared at him. "So did Liz say anything to you?"
"No really, its like I don't even exist." Ravi sounded hurt.
"Well, maybe she thought Kip might be jealous if he saw that she knew you, you know." She slyly smiled.
"Jealous?" He shook his head.
"You are pretty darn cute, you know. Handsome, in fact. I'm surprised there aren't fan clubs and fan fictions, just written about you." She teased.
Ravi rolled his eyes at that.
"You don't think she's in over her head with this guy, do you? I mean, he was freak'n weird with Syd." Ravi just said as if he cared about Liz.
"Oh Lord, does this mean what I think it means?" Olivia glared at him then.
"If it'll make you feel any better, we'll just drop in and see what's up." Olivia shrugged. She sipped her coffee then as if this could be as easily fixed as getting Eric some Sudefed.
