Two Sheets to the Wind : 2


Duo sidled up to Heero.  "Why do you come to these parties?"

Heero was glad for a motivation to tear his eyes away from the sight of several of their Preventer co-workers failing to spin a dreidel effectively.  "Why is their stunning lack of coordination so incredibly funny?"

Duo winced as an unnecessarily loud burst of laughter shot through the room's noise.  "Someone dosed the eggnog."

"Oh.  That explains... everything, really."

"Hmm."  God, it was loud in here.  He edged closer to Heero.  "No really.  Why do you come to these parties?  It's not like HR's gonna write you up for bad team spirit or something."

Heero was silent for a long moment, eyes drifting inexorably back to the other partygoers and their antics.  "I feel... I should at least give them a chance.  I might be pleasantly surprised one day."

"By how much great blackmail material you can gather?"

"If I want to compel someone to do something, I have many other avenues available to me."

"You sure do.  So.  Does that mean I've got a chance?"

Heero returned his attention to him.  "A chance to what?"

"Hey, wanna get outta here?  Night's still young.  Still got some time to go get a decent dinner."

A Preventers Christmas party... Hope all weapons were checked at the door. It could get a little rowdy.

I'm sure you could wreak a good bit of havoc with a dreidel.  If you were a pilot, maybe.

(why exactly their party features a dreidel...)

I'm thinking Duo might be planning to pleasantly surprise Heero once they leave the party.

Well, when Heero gives him such an opening, you can bet Duo's gonna capitalize.

Duo's answering a question with a question. Shock. Horror. He's up to something, Heero.

Does Heero drink eggnog?

Heero probably never gave the eggnog a chance.

Dinner sounds like a very good idea. I give Heero credit... I have managed in a whole lot of years to avoid the dreaded company Christmas parties.

I think I've been at my company long enough that people would be more surprised to see me at the party than not, so I'm done pretending. ^^

I've avoided it long enough that if anybody even asks if I'm attending, my stock answer is "I can't; if I did... somebody might have a heart attack".
