Just another day...
Irey yawned as she opened the door to her office. The clock on her wall read half past eight but Irey felt like the walking dead as she shoved her bag under her desk.
maybe she could get some coffee...
The thought answered itself and in the next few seconds, she was back on her feet and out the door. In her rush she bumped into a man on his way down the corridor, sending sheets of paper flying in all directions.
" Oh my gosh, I'm so sorry, I didn't see you." Irey appologised, picking up some sheets.
" It's fine. I wasn't paying attention. " the man replied, " I was looking for my-" He looked up at her, " ...my office."
Irey noticed his pause and looked down, " oh are you the new guy?" She asked as he stood up.
" Uh, yeah. I came from Gotham." She handed him back his papers and he accepted them with a smile and a nod. " Thank you."
" No problem. Oh and welcome to Central City." She held out her hand, " I'm Iris West, but most people call me Irey."
" I'm Damian Wayne." He shook her offered hand.
Irey beamed at him and jerked her head to the door on her left, " that'll be your office then." Sure enough the name on the door read Dr Wayne. He smiled and with a little help from the redhead, the door was opened and Damian could free his arms. He looked around the room for a minute, before turning back to Irey.
" uh, do you wanna go get some coffee or something?" He asked suddenly hopeful.
Irey laughed and nodded, " yeah sure, I was on my way there before I bumped into you. I would suggest we go to the coffee shop down the road, because it's better than the stuff you can get here and my friend owns it."
Damain ran a hand through his hair, " yeah sounds great."
" Irey!" The dark haired woman behind the counter shouted when she spotted her friend.
" Hi, Lian!" Irey waved back. Lian made a 'come here' gesture and pointed around the back, tapping her employee Robbie that was with her and telling him to man the counter whilst she was gone.
Irey tugged Damian along by his jacket, before coming to a stop at the staff room door, Lian bursting through and grabbing her in a tight hug, which the redhead returned just as tightly. When they pulled away, Lian spotted Damian.
" who's this...your boyfriend?" She asked cheekily. Irey rolled her eyes.
" No he's a new coleague at work." She stood between them, " Lian this is Damian, Damian this is my friend Lian."
" Hi there." Lian smiled.
" do you want coffee, Irey and her-not-boyfriend Damian?"
" yes, please. You know my usual and Damian...?"
" a Mocha please."
Lian gave Irey a wink before heading back into the staff room.
They stood in silence for a few minutes, save for the slight din of clinking cups on saucers and light conversation.
" Sorry about that, Lian likes to assume things." Irey picked at her nails. The man shrugged and gave her a reasuring smile.
" it's not a problem Irey."
They were on their way back to the office, coffees in hand. Talking about everything and anything. They had a lot in common, both liked to read, both liked going running or walking. Damian was quite pleased he'd made a friend on the first day, and a really pretty one at that.
About a week into the job, Damian had gotten to know everyone in the workplace thanks to Ireu and his new patients. Irey was in early every day but a wednesday, so she headed out and got them both coffee and on a Wednesday they would both make the comute to the shop.
Needless to say it didn't take their workmates long to figure out that they were
More than friends. Both of them denied it for weeks until Damian plucked up the courage to ask her out on a date. And after the movie he'd walked her home and kissed her goodnight.
The next time they entered the coffee shop, they were hand in hand.
Lian had smirked and held out her palm to Robbie, " you owe me ten dollars."
How was that? Good? Bad? Tell me your thoughts my darlings.
