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.
You'll never forgive yourself, if you don't pull it together.
Pam heard that sentence over and over in her head. And it was true. If she lost it, right here, let her frustrations loose, all the progress that could have been made tonight, would be lost.
You're bigger than this, Beesly. Suck it up, and be an adult.
She turned to Jim. "I'm fine," she reassured him, losing her cold tone. "Really, I am. Just really hungry."
And as she turned to look out the window, she realized that they were just pulling into Cugino's.
"You sure?" Jim asked as he pulled in and put the car in park. She was saying that she was okay, but there was something about the way that she said it. Jim just couldn't be convinced so easily.
She didn't say anything.
Getting out of the car, he shut his door and hurried over to open hers. Once she'd gotten out, he shut the door behind her and locked the car.
"Are you sure that you're okay?" he asked again. He was almost sure that he was bothering her now, but he was somewhat concerned. He didn't want for her to have to pretend to be all right when it was obvious that she was not.
