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?

Hi Nick

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

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?

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

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?
