Date: Spring 2012
Characters: Candice Wilmer, Dae-mun 'Jimmy' Lee
Summary: There's nothing like coming home after a long, hard day at the office.
Warnings: sexual situations
Status: In Progress

Down in the garage, the lights were still out and she had to rely on instinct and memory to keep from bumping into walls. God, she hated being down here, and if she could've helped it, if she thought she could leave her car on the street and not find it vandalized, she never would've stepped foot underground willingly. Prelude for the grave, she thought, stepping into the elevator and wondering how long she'd have to wait until he came home.

"I wish you could forget about him."

Hard to do when she used to plan her day around him. She still knew what he liked, she could still judge his mood from the barest flicker of his glance. He was an open book and still, even divorced they'd managed to fall into that one pattern she feared most: the housewife waiting for the husband to come home. Hopefully alive, hopefully in one piece.

Hopefully not planning her execution.

The unmarked car pulled into the garage and let him out. He was sore and tired, but felt more human than he had days prior. On doctor's order, he wasn't allowed on his bike. Waving the car off, he made his slow trek up to the garage steps, thinking of explanation for where he'd been. Not that he needed to, but deep down, against all logic-he wanted to.

She heard the key in the lock, looking up from her plate with only mild interest. It would either be Jimmy or Jamie and she dearly hoped it was the former. The latter was making her uneasy and he knew not to use his key unless there was an emergency.

"Hey, dinner's in the kitchen," she called out, shuffling deeper into the couch. Hell, maybe it could swallow her whole one of these days.

"Yeah? What'd you make?" he asked, tossing his keys into the bowl by the door. He was far from starving, but he wouldn't turn down a meal offered. "How are you? I got your messages ten minutes ago."

"Lasagna and don't criticize," she warned in advance, wincing when he mentioned her call. "I'm fine. Texas was a bust. We found Bennet's daughter and then we lost Bennet's daughter." To the Enclave.

"Bennet's daughter? The one who was supposed to be dead?" he asked from the kitchen, loading his plate with lasagna and carried it to sit next to Candice on the couch. "Well, either way there's an APB out now. How are you two holding up?"

21st-Oct-2007 08:06 pm (UTC)
"We're fine," she shrugged, sighing a little. "Lost time and bullets and Bennet's still live kid, but we're fine. Enclave took her."
21st-Oct-2007 08:09 pm (UTC)
"Not surprising if Bennet's involved. Noah, I mean." he sighed and picked at the food on his plate. "Did you get hurt?"
21st-Oct-2007 08:16 pm (UTC)
Setting her plate on the coffee table, she tried to keep her hand still. "No. I didn't." Jamie did. And it was my fault.

"Shot a civilian, though."
21st-Oct-2007 08:21 pm (UTC)
He set his fork on his plate and gave her a sideways glance. Candice wouldn't have mentioned hitting a civilian if they survived it. While he could find all of the facts from the debrief, it wasn't thorough enough to answer what he really wanted to know. "Accidental?" Are you okay with it?
21st-Oct-2007 08:27 pm (UTC)
"I hate shooting people who don't deserve it," she shrugged, craning her neck to shoot him a glance that begged him not to ask about the details. He'd find out or he wouldn't. She didn't want to be the one to say it, though.

Let my partner take a bullet for me.

"Do you want me to give you a zen response or smile and nod?" he asked, tilting his head to look into her eyes. Grinning, he squeezed her shoulder.
29th-Oct-2007 06:54 pm (UTC)
"Don't do either," she suggested after a long moment, before standing up to take her plate into the kitchen. "Let's just forget about it. How was your day?"
29th-Oct-2007 07:01 pm (UTC)
"A lot of hurrying up and waiting." he shrugged, following her into the kitchen. If she wasn't going to talk about it, he wasn't going to press. "Went to the doctor finally, turns out I'm fine."
29th-Oct-2007 07:03 pm (UTC)
She arched an eyebrow without turning to look at him. "Were you honest about what happened?" Knowing him, he'd probably glossed over the whole thing saying he'd felt dizzy and was he coming down with a cold. Probably safer that way.
29th-Oct-2007 07:20 pm (UTC)
"Yes, I was honest about the whole cold thing, something about thyroid and hypothalamus and a lot of other large words." he sighed, leaning against the opposite counter. "They put me on a warm IV and had tests done, but they all came back normal. Most likely from stress and exhaustion. I just need to rest."
