Taylor and Xena

by Anonymous | Score: 4850

There was silence. Neither of them spoke. Ginny had stridden up and asked if they wanted to play poker. Or started to until she saw the looks on their faces. Zena was clearly trying to think of something to say, to make the conversation less awkward. She was touchy, while good for her job, it didn't help when Taylor tried to ask her out. The world has paused. Taylor walked over to her desk and pulled a chair up to it. He realized it might be weird having your boss ask you out. Especially since he was 6 years older, and she was quite young. He held a fundraiser, selling his art. He even sold his favorite, of glass shattering. He took a million photos, but it wasn't the same. This was what first brought them together, art. She was really more talented than him, but preferred art history to art. The day she first walked in with a minnie mouse shirt without a bow, seriously the bow had been cut out denim sewn beneath, she was not serious but friendly. Ever since then he had wanted her. But now, could they even be friends? He was all alone. Taylor handed her pudding, saying, "I'm sorry, please forget I said it and let's still be frineds
