8) discreet and Royai, please.
This was the first thing that came to mind so I just went with it. Thanks for sending a prompt. =)
Roy was having a difficult day. No one else seemed to notice, but Riza could see it clearly written in the way he furrowed his brow as he worked, in the tenseness of his shoulders as he sat hunched over paperwork, eyes not actually focusing on the material in front of him. She sighed quietly and frowned, glancing up at him for the millionth time in concern, wondering what was bothering him so much.
Without a word, Riza stood and walked over to the coffee pot in the corner of the office, filling a mug to the brim and adding two sugars, just the way Roy liked it. She approached his desk and his head shot up to meet her gaze, appearing almost startled at her presence in front of him as she reached out to him, offering the warm drink. He must have been so distracted that he hadn’t seen her walk across the room to fill the mug in her hands.
She smiled lightly at him and he could tell by the look in her eyes that she knew he was having a bad day. His posture relaxed a bit and he reached to take the mug from her hands, returning her smile with a small, grateful one of his own. Riza released the mug and brushed her hand discreetly along his, holding it there for longer than was truly appropriate before turning away from him to return to her desk.
As he took a sip of his coffee, Roy glanced over to his lieutenant and smiled, thinking about how fortunate he was to have her by his side and wondering what he had done to deserve the loyalty and affection of someone as wonderful as her.
