    Summary

    {well you're never gonna find it if you're looking for it/won't come your way}

    Ten past nine. So she’s not coming. Maggie doesn’t know if she’s relieved or disappointed. It’s probably going to be awkward as hell now even though they didn’t actually hook up, but Maggie’s a big girl and she’s skated past worst points of discomfort. Even if there is a sharp little niggle at the base of her stomach that feels a lot like rejection.

    Sighing, she plods to the fridge, grabbing a beer and leaning against the kitchen counter after popping it, morosely looking at her clean beige tiles and trying to figure out a satisfying plan for the rest of the evening.

    The tentative knock almost makes her drop her sweating bottle, but before Maggie’s gathered herself enough to start walking to the door, it gets loud and demanding.

    “Alright, alright,” She calls, padding across the living room rug and opening the door, beer bottle dangling between her fingers. She was gonna play it cool, but as soon as she sees Alex, shifting from foot to foot awkwardly and then settling into practically a military stance, she forgets that, fumbling a little as she puts the beer down on the small key table next to the door.
