JJ and John Have a Chat
JJ managed to stop her hand from hitting John in the face. She was just about to knock when the police house door flew open revealing the cause of all her consternation. She had to remind herself to breathe, John Biebe was a fine figure of a man, and he looked even more appealing today, could it be because he was looking so flustered?
"Oh, hello, Tinkerbell...Tink...JJ...I mean, Miss McQuarie. Did you need to see me about something?"
"Um, yes I did actually, Officer Biebe."
John stepped back from the door allowing her space to enter.
"Please, take a seat. Can I get you something? Tea, coffee?"
"I'm good, ta. I had a cuppa over at the bank with Max and Bobbie."
"Ah right, you don't mind if I have one?"
"Of course not, it's your office."
John spent a little time getting his mug of coffee before returning to his desk and sitting down. They both looked at each other in silence for a minute and then spoke at once.
"John...we need to..."
"Please, you go first," John muttered.
"Okay. Where to start. John, you seem like a really nice man."
"Nice," John groaned.
"But that's a good thing, I like nice," JJ smiled. "You're also a mystery to me. You pull me over for speeding, give me a ticket and then pay it yourself, why?"
John blushed before he answered. "It's my job, JJ."
"Do you pay every fine yourself then?"
John shook his head.
"Oh, John. There has to be a better way to get my attention...if that's what you want that is."
"JJ, I think you're nice too...in a nice way...but..."
"You've been hurt haven't you, John."
John looked down at his desk and said nothing. JJ could see his shoulders shaking. She went round to his side of the desk and knelt down by his chair. Gently brushing the hair from his face she made him look at her.
"John, I would never do anything to hurt you, I can make you that promise and keep it. So, if you would like to get to know me a bit better I think that would make me happy." She kissed the tip of John's nose before getting up and going back to her seat.
John said nothing, just stared at JJ for a few moments. He then reached out his hands and placed them on his desk, palm up. JJ smiled, reached out her own hands and placed them gently on top of Johns'. They looked into each others eyes and smiled.
