Just a bit. I’ll let it slide though. Just this once.
Would a cookie maybe make up for my joke’s lameness?
He nodded understandingly. “Well I can just walk with you?” he said sort of hesitantly. “If you want me to of course.” he took a breath. “I mean if you’d just prefer that I met you there I can do that too.” he said before shaking his head. “Just ignore me. No motorcycle rides and I promise that I’m not a serial killer or anything, I don’t even really like Corn Flakes.” he said at the end, trying to salvage the encounter with a joke, although he doubted that it had worked, somehow he always managed to make a fool of himself in front of pretty girls like Teagan, and she was someone who he didn’t want to think that he was a fool.
He had had his motorbike for a couple of years and it was one of his favourite things to do, riding his motorcycles, sometimes he took it out of the city and just rode it for hours, only coming back when he was too tired or hungry to keep going safely.
"It’s not really that far of a walk. I should be just fine on my own," She said, turning back so that she was facing Hunter. Teagan couldn’t help but notice that he was rambling on, clearly indicating that he was nervous, though what could he be so nervous about? It wasn’t her, was it? Maybe it was just a social thing, thought even if it was, Teagan couldn’t blame him for it, as when she was younger, she had a hard time being social with her peers. "I’ll meet you there?"
-He flopped back onto the bed waiting for her to return looking at her with a smile as she handed them to him. With a small shake of the first he unwrapped it and then did the second- Oh that’s awesome.
[ She smiled, watching him unwrap both the new scrapbook, containing pictures and the like since Mena found out she was pregnant, and the second gift, impressions of both Trenton’s and Kieran’s feet in concrete ] I figured, that since we started a new chapter in our lives, we might as well start another scrapbook. As for the second one, Catherine used to make these every year for my fathers birthday with Perrie’s and Priam’s handprints, so I thought I’d continue the tradition.
Oh Gods, I’m sorry. That was lame.
I wouldn’t want to move anyway even if I could. Mm fine. I won’t complain too much.
[ She smiled and pressed a kiss to his cheek before turning on her heel, making her way to the kitchen. Once she checked on the meal in the oven, she grabbed two wrapped boxes. Once she had the boxes in hand, she made her way back to Nick, where she handed him both of the boxes ] Happy birthday, love.
"Yeah." he said smiling friendlyly. "I’ll tell my manager to look out for the application, and believe me it isn’t that great." he said jokingly, chuckling a little as he did. "We might be popular but it isn’t always a good thing, sometimes we get so busy that all you want to do is hide." he said laughing gently. "Although we do seem to get a lot of med students in, good to know that if I ever have a heart attack at work there will be someone to save me."
"Pleasure to meet you Teagan." he said with a genuine smile. "Is there anywhere particular that you want to go?" he asked with a raised eyebrow. "I’d offer you a lift." he said pointing his thumb to his bike. "But not many girls seem to want to go for a ride on the back of that thing, and that is understandable with the way that I drive." he said smiling.
"I wouldn’t mind it being busy. I hate being bored," She said with a nod, "I think it might be best if I just walk. It doesn’t sound very safe to ride with someone I just met. That sounds like the beginning of a Law and Order SVU episode, but there’s a small coffee shop about two blocks down. You can’t miss it," Teagan explained, pointing in the general direction of the shop. "I can meet you there?"
Even if Teagan had known Hunter better, she more than likely wouldn’t have ridden with Hunter. In all honesty, Teagan was way too scared to even think of riding on the back of a motorcycle.
Hunter shrugged and thought for a moment. “There aren’t any jobs right at this very second.” he said with a frown, the he remembered that Angela was quitting. “But I believe we’ll have an opening come around soon, so if you put in an application early you stand a better chance of getting the job.” he said with a smile, trying not to look too pleased with the fact that she was going to be working with him, in close proximity to him on a potentially daily basis, his day just got better and better.
Smiling down at her he took a leap. “I’m Hunter by the way, if you’re going to be working together then we might as well get to know one another.” he said with a shrug, trying his hardest to make it sound casual and not that he was hitting on her, even though he definitely was. “So do you want to get coffee or something? Apart from a Sandwich preferably.”
"Really?" She asked, still a hopeful tone in her voice, " I’ll be sure to put an application through soon. I’d hate to miss out on a great working opportunity, I mean, I’m aware that the shop is a pretty popular place," Teagan said, trying to hold back her accent some so that it completely didn’t just take over the words that came out, "I know a lot of the med students haul their textbooks in there to work."
"I’m Teagan," She said, retunring the smile before nodding. She was completely just jumped head first into something new. Here she was, getting ready to get coffee with someone she barely even knew. For all she knew, he could be some psychopath serial killer with plans to kill her, but she agreed to meet up with him anyway.
Turning at the sound the muscular boy smiled and nodded as he held the motor bike helmet underneath his bicep. “Yes. That is me.” he said with a nod. “Is there something that I can help you with?” he asked his voice even and portraying a image of confidence even if he was anything but confident, his heart pounding and his blood roaring in his ears as he talked to easily the most interesting person he had ever met.
"Is there something that I can help you with?" he asked with a smile. He was suddenly curious as to why she was talking to him, she had been so engrossed in that text book of hers that he genuinely thought she would be there all night, had his staring been noticed?
Teagan looked up at him before speaking. He was so much taller than her, it was intimidating. At least, it was to her. He looked as if he could squish her without even trying.
"I was just wondering if by any chance there were jobs that are open there? I’ve been looking for a job recently and I just thought that since I go to the shop enough that it might be worth it to look into having a job there," Teagan explained, adjusting the straps weighing down on her shoulders. Though she had a scholarship, she needed a little extra money to get her bye.
