Trifecta challenge – doctor (This is further to the last one)

There was a knock at the door. She sighed. Normally, she would have hated being interrupted, but it wasn’t as if she was getting anywhere. Maybe she knew him too well for this to work. She knew she wasn’t exactly following procedure with this one. It annoyed her that he could make her bend the rules for him. A few years back she would never even have considered it. But now…
Her thoughts were broken into by her colleague, who came into the room and put a mug down on the table in front of her. “Thought you might be in need of this.”.
“Ah, thanks,” she said rather absently. Her colleague shot her a sidelong glance and went away again.
She took a sip of the coffee and pulled a face.
He looked amused. “Coffee gone downhill again since I left?”
She frowned. “After you decided not to grace us with your presence anymore, the coffee machine… Broke.”
“Broke? Or was broken? You can’t be too careful about details, you know. The devil’s in the detail after all.”
“For the last time, this is not a book!”
He subsided with a smile, and she kicked herself for letting him win the first round so easily.
“Aren’t you going to go doctor that liquid going by the name of coffee?”
“No. I’m going to sit here and not be riled up by you.”
He just looked at her. “I think you’ve got better odds with the pseudocoffee.”

    1. Haha! Oh they know how to wind each other up, that’s for sure. The thing is, they really should be together, but I’m not sure she will ever admit it. Especially when he gets himself into trouble and then behaves like this…. And the horrible coffee isn’t likely to improve her mood.
