She was angry with him.
He wasn't really sure why, he just knew that ever since she got to work this morning, she had be ignoring him. Not that they spent an inordinately large amount of time together, but still she hadn't said one word to him all day. Not even when he spilled coffee down his front and had to change his shirt. He was expecting at least a snarky comment or a condescending smirk. He got nothing.
She hadn't ignored him like this since the staff holiday party 3 months ago. They had slowly become close friends in the months before as they worked more and more missions together, but that night, they had both gotten really drunk and ended up kissing under the mistletoe. For a while. Longer than strictly necessary. And Jack didn't regret it for a second. But Peggy...Peggy did. Their next sober interaction had been stifled and awkward, and since then, there conversions had settled into a polite formality, losing any sense of the joking kinship they had before.
And now she was just going to ignore him? He watched as the woman in question crossed the room and entered the file closet. Jack already missed her witty jokes and charming smile- he didn't think he could handle it if she stopped to talking to him altogether. Abruptly he stood, and followed her, slamming the door on the small room and turning the lock, before announcing

She had been facing away from him, stretching to reach a box on the top shelf, but whipped around at the sound of the door, before composing herself, and crossing her arms over her chest.
"Talk about what?" she said primly, arching an eyebrow.
"About us" he said. Peggy's eyed widened at this and he backpedalled quickly. "Er, i mean...about how your ignoring me."
Peggy relaxed a little at this, though she still looked angry."I'm not ignoring you Jack, I just have a lot of things on my plate right now" she said, her shoulders square to mine, her eyes warning me not to push her further. So, being as stubborn as an ass, I did.
"That is utter BS!" I spat at her. "You won't even look at me today!" Angry myself, I stepped closer to her, effectively pinning her against the cabinet. "What is so important that you can't even talk to me, huh Peg?" She tried to push me away.
"Jack just leave it alone be-" I cut her off.
"No. Tell me right now or i'll-"
"You'll what Jack? Shove me up against a locker?" She began to push harder on my chest. "Just let me go, before I knock you out." She was starting to sound desperate.
"Not before you tell me" I said stubbornly.
"Just drop it-"
"No, I'm not going to-"
"Just tell me alr-
