Alex looked at her for a moment… and then he started laughing. It took him a minute, during which he waved at Faye to show he wasn’t laughing at her… but at the situation.

Faye stopped her pacing and just looked at him.

Finally catching his breath, he steadied himself and said “Well… that is a conundrum, isn’t it?” and he took a breath. He pointed to the chair and said “Ok, first of all sit down. I’ll get a neck cramp watching you bounce off the walls like that.” He looked at her and smiled. “Ok. Let me ask you a few questions, and then we’ll dive into our text book entitled ‘Dating - A Primer For Thirty Nine Year Old’s Who Are Freaking Out’.”

“Well, if I had known there was a book,” Calloway quipped as she retook her seat.

He sat back and said “So tell me… have you ever eaten food before?” and he smiled.


Faye gave him a withering glare. “No, never. I drink the blood of my enemies remember?”

“Well, that will certainly make menu options problematic. Second question… do you know how to walk and sit?” he asked as if he had no idea what the answer would be, but it was concerning nonetheless.


Bracing her elbow on the desk, she tapped her lips with her index fingers. “I think I remember how…” she said innocently. Of course she knew where he was going with this, but the normal everyday social activities were still something she had been easing herself into. Having left her loner days (mostly) in the past, Faye was pushing herself a little more each time without trying to induce a panic attack. So fine, she could do basic social things with Dag. But everything at least felt different now that there were such intense feelings between them, It changed everything, didn’t it?
