Laughter was truly a drug and it felt so splendid and rather sincere. Jude couldn't help but smile more. Samantha, the newest library clerk who had just started college, really did love Dr. Who and Merlin.
"I really wanted to have a Dr. Who party, you know, but I doubted anyone would come." He sighed as he sat in the front seat with her while her car warmed.
"You, have to be kidding," She caught a laugh as she bit a grin. She really did have nice teeth. "You mean..at the library?"
"Yeah, of course." He winced then, thinking she'd think he'd have a TV marthon at his place? He didn't want her to know he just lived at a boarding house. "For the young adults, no less."
"You should." She told him as she gripped the stirring wheel.
"Well, then I shall." He made it sound as if it were her idea. When he leaned in, he didn't mean for it to happen. Or did he? The kiss.
It was warm. So inviting and terribly sweet.
"Oh, I have to go." It was like he awoke a different person, perhaps, but not really. He didn't ride in cars. He didn't drive, either. And what better way to have her wanting more.
"Wait, I thought..you wanted me..to drive you home?" She winced as if she was terribly different too. As if he'd burst this lust between them into bits. He'd see about that.
"No..no..I'll be fine." He explained. He would bundle up. After all, he had a full mask of a woolen cap to make him quite sinister.
"But..its like negative 5 out there."
"I'll be fine." He just smiled. This was how he did things. He rarely ever went anywhere. Didn't she figure it out? He was actually boring. He'd find his way. Snow drift or not. He got out and went on his way in the elements of wind and sunshine on the barren white landscape.
Yes, it would have been nice to stay. Perhaps even see more of her, but it was not going to happen. At least not today.
