This is a short crappy Jeff x Britta fanfiction ( kind of) based on the shoulder thing Jeff did at the end of episode four. I haven’t written in ages. This is most definitely shit, but I missed the feeling of posting stuff and sharing my obsessions. So here goes nothing.
(Also Jeff and Britta 5ever <3 )
Also I typed this on my phone at 4AM so again I apologise for how crappy it is.
Britta doesn’t know how to react. It’s nothing big, just his arm wrapped around her shoulder. But somehow, that simple gesture restores memories, and takes her back in time. It takes her back to a period when she had thought she was going to marry him.
The blondie is confused. Months have passed, allowing the two of them to become friends again, just friends. But now, he’s done something that messed with a delicate new balance. She lifts her head slowly, looking up at him. Before she can utter a word, Jeff quickly takes his arm away from her body, saying something related to Abed’s bird. She stares at his face for a moment, trying to read the smallest detail, trying to find hope. However, he acts indifferent. He doesn’t look at her. Doesn’t say anything. It kills Britta inside.
She slowly realises that she has probably over-analysed his intentions. Maybe it was a mere friendly touch. Maybe he did it out of past habit. Heck, maybe he even forgot she was standing next to him, and mistook her for Annie. The possibilities are endless, so to believe he felt any sort of nostalgia for their old fling would be silly.
Britta sighs, and walks away. She knows she’s about to cry, but she holds it in. She doesn’t want to shed one more tear over him. As she walks aimlessly down a corridor, her phone buzzes. She doesn’t want to fetch it from her bag, but curiosity gets the best out of her.
It’s a text message. From Jeff.
"Drinks tonight? Usual place?"
She shakes her head and lets out a chuckle as her heart beat quickens. She doesn’t know where it is going. She doesn’t know where he stands in this, but she’s sure of one thing, and that is life feels more like life whenever she’s with him. So….She replies.
"Duh. See you at 8PM."
