Peter leans in closer, tentatively slipping his arms around her waist, and gives her a warm squeeze. “Wait a minute, compiling and debugging? What was causing the smoke, then?!? Not my hard drive!”
"Um…" She hugged him tighter and kept her face buried in his chest. "Probably not? At least I backed it up before I did anything…" C looked up to him with an innocent smile.
Peter sighs again and rubs slow circles around her back, chin nudged in against the side of her head. “I hope it’s worth all the trouble… So uh, when do I get my lab back, then?”
She smirked. ”A few days. You should get it back on Friday, no big deal. Don’t worry, it’s worth it. I promise. You’ll be proud.”
