Dunder-Mifflin Scranton (An Office RP)
Jim stood nervously outside Pam's door. Even though he had told her that he was coming, he still did not want to have come at the right time. Tonight was definitely going to be important. The day had already been very eventful and they hadn't even done all that much around the office.
Still, he was debating whether or not to knock. He could just turn around and run away. And when he saw her again at work, he would just make up some story about how he had not been feeling well and that he hadn't gotten a chance to call her before he passed out.
But that might hurt her feelings. She might suspect that he'd left on purpose or that he wasn't at all interested in being friends with her again. That was certainly not the case. He just didn't want to mess everything up this time. He wanted it to work. He wanted for them to be friends again.
He also wanted to fix whatever mess he'd made between him and Karen, but that was another battle.
Taking a deep breath, he knocked on the door. There was no going back now.
"So," Pam said back, sounding as awkward as he did. It was silent in the car, maddeningly so.
"I've started baking," she said, almost screaming it. Her voice was so loud and sudden, she startled herself. "I wanted to bake a key lime pie tomorrow, that's why I went grocery shopping before you got here, but this really crazy old lady took the last one, and she shouted at me, 'You snooze, you lose, kid', and it was so insane, it was hysterical-"
Pam paused for a breath, and looked over at Jim.
"I-just thought it was funny," she said, smiling wanly.
Jim looked over at her for a split second and then focused his attention back onto the road.
"That's...just a little bit creepy." Jim replied awkwardly. Noticing that his phone was blinking, he picked it up. He had left it in the car when he'd gotten out to get Pam. "Just a minute," he said to Pam, and checked the voice mail. It was Karen.
"That was Karen," Jim said. "I think she thinks somethings going on." He didn't know why he was telling her this, but it slipped out before he could stop it.
