Chocolate

 

“Bring me back some chocolate,” she’d called after them as a joke. “Nothing with orange in it, though. That’s just weird.”

 

When Becker returned he quietly slipped the bar of Dairy Milk onto her desk. “Nothing with orange, right?” he asked.

 

Stunned that he’d actually remembered, she smiled at him. Maybe her interest wasn’t completely unfounded; he had brought her chocolate, after all. And he kept smiling at her, and had such a lovely smile…

 

More determined, Jess decided that she was going to have to try a more direct approach with him as he didn’t seem to notice subtlety.

 

 

Music

 

“What do you do for fun, Becker?” Jess asked, perching on the edge of the desk he was working at. She smiled, twisting a strand of hair around her finger as she spoke. “What about music?”

 

“What about it?” Becker asked distractedly.

 

“Maybe we could go see a concert sometime.”

 

He looked up then, confused, knowing he’d missed part of the conversation.

 

Jess just sighed, going back to her own desk.

 

When she had gone, Matt sat down beside Becker. “You have to tell her you’re not interested.”

 

“Why?”

 

“She likes you.”

 

“Does she?”

 

Matt rolled his eyes in despair.

 

 

Mixed signals

 

He said he wanted to talk to her! Maybe he had taken the massive hints she had been throwing his way for the past few months. And that he wanted to talk to her in private, well, that was a good sign. Wasn’t it?

 

Becker smiled as she came into the room, the door swishing shut behind her.

 

“So, what did you want to talk about? Have you thought more about going to the theatre?”

 

“Jess, I can’t. I’m seeing someone.”

 

Jess let her gaze drop from his. “Oh. I’m sorry; I didn’t know.”

 

“I should have told you earlier.”

 

 

Surprise

 

Jess headed for Matt’s office, hoping he’d know something about Becker’s mystery woman. When she got there, however, she heard voices: Matt and Becker, talking about her.

 

“I should have told her the truth,” Becker said.

 

Jess knocked once, going straight in. “About what?”

 

They glanced at each other.

 

“I told you I was seeing someone.” Becker hesitated before saying, “Its Matt.”

 

There was a long moment of stunned silence.

 

“You and Matt?”

 

He nodded.

 

“Well, I’m happy for you,” she said eventually, giving them both a hug.

 

She smiled; if nothing else, she still got a hug from Becker.

Probably unable to see past the prettiness that is Becker.

I felt a bit sorry for her while writing it. Not like they're very discreet, though...

"at least she got a hug from Becker." LOL I'd think the same thing! Poor Jess in this. But Matt and Becker are so doing it. *g* I don't know how she's surprised, really...

I'm not sure how she hasn't noticed before this- they aren't exactly subtle.
