“So Emily, can I talk to you?” JJ asked as she chased Emily up the stairs.
“Sure, what’s up?”
JJ bit her lip and tried to find the right words. She wanted to continue the conversation from the bar but hadn’t had the nerve to say anything. She hadn’t stopped thinking about that night and she was sure she couldn’t let it go unless she got more information. She was naturally inquisitive.
“It’s about what you told PG and I at the bar,” JJ started, she saw Emily’s demeanor shift into a slightly defensive posture and decided to tread lightly.
“What about it?” Emily asked as she instinctively folded her arms over her chest.
“I just,” JJ realized she wasn’t even sure where she had planned to go with her conversation and sort of trailed off.
“Look, I don’t usually tell people because I get stereotyped and with my mother’s job it’s just not good publicity. I’d appreciate it if you kept it between us,” Emily stated matter of factly. “And if you have a problem with it, tell me now because I’d rather hear it direct from the source than you go talking behind my back.”
JJ was taken aback. She had no problem with Emily being gay, her little brother was gay. She was just sort of in shock about it.
“I don’t have a problem with it and I can keep a secret. I just wanted to say thanks for telling me,your honesty means a lot,” JJ was embarrassed as soon as she said it but the words had sort of slipped out.
“Erm, you’re welcome? I guess?” Emily looked at JJ and could feel the tension between them. She couldn’t tell what angle the blonde was playing at and tried to take it as a compliment. “Is that all?”
JJ nodded but didn’t leave. Emily finally cleared her throat and pointed at the door they were standing in front of. JJ finally realized they were standing at the women’s room.
“Oh, right,” JJ stammered. “I’ll just leave you to it.”
She rushed away as her face turned bright red. I’ll leave you to it? JJ thought as she made her way back to the bullpen. There was something about Emily that turned the stoic JJ into a bumbling idiot and JJ wasn’t sure she liked whatever it was.

I’ve been playing through TNT Evilution, and this is my fav song from that. I made this today just because I was bored I guess. I wanted a more modern sounding version than just the midi to listen to while I play Factorio.
