Bones of the Past

Postby Shazad Athari » Fri Dec 08, 2017 8:46 am

Shazad had finished up his report on his encounter with Naomi and had just turned it in when he stopped by Peggy's desk during work. In work mode, there was a notable shift in his demeanor, and he said without any trace of his normal humor, "Malone? When you've got a few minutes, there's something I need to talk to you about."

Peggy was finishing a report of her own and she was on a role. She barely glanced at Shaz and didn’t stop writing. “Of course, Mr. Athari. Let me wrap this up and I’ll be over in 15.”

True to her word she arrived, report finished, in 14 minutes and 45 seconds. “Afternoon.”

"Hey. Let's talk in one of the conference rooms." Shazad was just finishing up his work when she arrived. Neatly clearing it all away from his desk so that his work space was empty once again, he stood up and started walking with her in that direction.

"Ooookay." The intrigue was there but she didn't waste time guessing what it could be about. The walk wasn't a long. Peggy held the door open for him and sealed it after she stepped through. "What's up?"

"A blast from the past--remember Naomi Parker?" he asked once the door was closed, not bothering to take a seat.

Nothing about her posture or expression changed but a surge of familiar guilt made her stomach drop. "Yeah. Why?"

"Because -- funny story -- she's actually alive and I ran into her the other day." Slowly, his brows rose and his mouth pressed down to a line.

“Wow. That is really not funny.” She turned back to the door, prepared to leave whatever joke he was trying out on her.

"Do you really think I would make a practical joke about this?" As he thought through the implications of what Peggy thinking that meant about what she thought of him, he was almost offended. "It wasn't even that funny!"

A joke so tasteless should at least be gutbustingly funny. What kind of person did she think he was? Geez.

A sigh left her and she turned back sharply. "You expect me to believe that a girl who hasn't been seen in years just bumped into you the other day?" Her eyes made direct and unwavering eye contact. "It is far more likely that you're doing some insensitive and unfunny experiment into my psyche. And fuck that."

Peggy wasn't like, 'emotionally stunted' or whatever, but this was a particularly sore subject. She wasn't used to the angry and sad concoction brewing inside her chest.

When Shazad did his psyche experiments, it was generally either for minor things or to create conditions that would lead to positive (if sometimes momentarily uncomfortable) outcomes for others. Lying about something like this would've been notably more cruel than anything he would normally do (at least on someone who was ostensibly on the same side as him).

Every trace of emotion fell from his face and he gave her the sort of flat, judgmental look that only came out of him once in a blue moon when someone was being extremely disappointing.

As far as she could remember, she had never been on the receiving end of that look. It didn’t help the emotions rolling around inside her, but it certainly redirected them. Her eye contact broke and she looked down in stubborn shame. Checking her own feelings was difficult and not something she had to do very often. It helped that she was usually guided by more rational reactions.

She let out a frustrated noise, trying to shake the residue of her guttural reaction. “Okay.” Her voice was softer than usual. “I’m sorry. . . for being a dick.” When she looked at him, it was clear she was sorry for being a dick.

"It's fine," he dismissed perhaps too briskly. Sitting up on the table nearby, he slid a folder out from his suit and handed it over. It contained a full account of both of his most recent encounters with her. "Here, take a look."

She took the folder tentatively, not wholly convinced that it was ‘fine’. She held the papers in her hands for a moment before growing a pair and opening it.

Her eyes grazed their first encounter and her brows knit together the more she read. Briefly, she considered asking a question but closed her mouth and read on. After finishing her skim through the second one she finally looked up. “She’s probably gone already,” she thought aloud.

"I don't either." She put the folders down on the table next to them. "Thank you for showing me." The emotions running through her were not good, per se, but it was better to learn this way and she knew it.

"You're the only one I would show," he said simply. The statement served two purposes--to let her know that she was getting special treatment by seeing this and also to indicate that the information was privileged.

"I appreciate it." With a nod she confirmed that she understood both premises. One of the reasons she was good at her job was her 'between the lines' literacy. She stood and readied herself to go back to work.
