Hi Jenny

Want to join me for coffee in the break room?

Nick

Hi Nick

I’m in the middle of a report right now and would like to finish it before lunch. How about coffee at 13.00?

Jenny

I can’t wait that long. Are you sure you can’t be persuaded to have coffee now?

Nick

Hi Nick

You’re bored, aren’t you? Haven’t you got work to be doing?

Jenny

Can’t get any work done, my office is still being rebuilt. Besides, I’m still meant to be recouperating.

Are you sure you don’t want coffee?

If you’re so desperate for coffee, why don’t you try asking Connor? It will probably do him good to get out from underneath the ADD for ten minutes.

Jenny

PS. That isn’t how you spell recuperating.

I don’t think the end of world would be enough to drag Connor out from under that thing right now. And would you really be cruel enough to subject an injured man to Connor when his head is full of computer code? I don’t think I could cope!

Besides, you make better coffee than Connor :-)

PS. You try typing when you’ve only got one properly working arm, see how good your spelling is then!

Oh, so you only want me for my coffee making? You really know how to make a lady feel special, Nick Cutter.

I still have work to do, even if you don’t. Besides, if you’re really so incapacitated you can barely type, you shouldn’t even be here. Perhaps I should tell Lester to send you home?

You wouldn’t dare!

I have biscuits as well, if that makes a difference? Your favourite chocolate shortcake ones, no less.

Also, I don’t just want you for your coffee making at all! You also happen to have much nicer legs than Connor ;-)

Bribery and sexual harassment in one e-mail. HR would have a field day with you!

If you would leave me alone for more than three minutes, I might be able to finish this report, and would then be available for coffee.

Jenny

PS. Biscuits might encourage me to not mention this to Lester.

Right now HR are more bothered about the fact that their office only has two walls.

You’ve been working on that report for at least the last half an hour. You should probably take a break. In fact, government working practice dictates that employees who work with computers should take regular breaks away from the monitor to avoid eyestrain and RSI.

So really, I’m only thinking of your wellbeing.

Coffee?

While your concern is noted, it is entirely misplaced, since I have been UNABLE to work on said report for more than three minutes at a time for most of the last hour, thanks to you.

I will meet you for coffee at lunchtime, and not before. Please go and harass someone else for a while.

Jenny

Everyone else is busy or not responding to e-mails.

I feel the need to remind you that I was shot in the chest less than a week ago. I’m feeling quite traumatised and probably shouldn’t be left alone for long periods of time.

Pretty please?

LEAVE ME ALONE!

Unless you want to be shot by *two* homicidal women in one week!

I didn’t expect that to work. Please don’t tell me you are sulking now?

Am I getting the silent treatment now?

It’s not like you to give up so easily. Perhaps you really do need to go home sick.

Oh for heaven’s sake!

Fine, I’ll see you in the break room in five minutes.

PS. They’d better be bloody good biscuits after all this.

Took you long enough!

See you in five.

PS. Biscuits may be already be slightly depleted. I don’t suppose you would believe me if I said it was Connor’s fault?

LOL. Great idea.

thanks. I have no idea why, but the e-mail format was the first thing that came to mind when I saw the prompt.

LOL, that's great fun :)
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 16th, 2012 10:21 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks, and surprisingly it appears to be the first time I've ever written Nick/Jenny - I had to create a new tag for my journal!

Hee, adorable fluff. *g* It works beautifully in the email format.

thanks, the e-mail format was the first thing I thought of, and the rest seemed to flow from that.

LOL - Nick's picked up some sneaky moves!

deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 17th, 2012 07:38 pm (UTC) (Link)
Nick definitely isn't playing fair in his quest for coffee.

LOL!!! Brilliant. Genius. Nick wasn't really sulking, was he? Evil tactic *g* And he definitely had her at the mention of the biscuits :D
Wonderful.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 17th, 2012 07:43 pm (UTC) (Link)
The biscuits were a masterstroke on Nick's part. I'm sure he wasn't really sulking, it was a strategic silence!
celeste9 From: celeste9 Date: January 17th, 2012 02:58 pm (UTC) (Link)
This is adorable and funny. Somehow I think Nick's 'sulking' was merely part of his plan!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 17th, 2012 07:45 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks, yes, I suspect Nick knew exactly what he was doing when he went quiet.
nietie From: nietie Date: January 17th, 2012 03:23 pm (UTC) (Link)
ROFL! Hilarious "conversation".
Cutter certainly knows how to get his way *g*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 17th, 2012 07:46 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks, I was quite worried the humour wouldn't work, so yey! And yes, Nick was being very sneaky.
talliw From: talliw Date: January 17th, 2012 05:45 pm (UTC) (Link)
LOL
They should have Cutter stay confined in hospital.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 17th, 2012 07:47 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks, that would certainly have made life easier for everyone else, but no doubt Nick would have driven the hospital staff crazy!
