Imagine: working at the GCPD and Ed accidentally asks you out
You stepped out of Captain Essen’s office and let out a loud sigh. This case you were given was a headache, and your partner, that asshole you had for a partner was more interested in on bagging the record keeper that assisting you in the case as it should be. Dougherty you asshole.
“Good morning, Detective (Y/LN)”, Ed greets you with a smile. Although you’re a little tired for jot getting enough sleep last night—you didn’t make it to you home for being hunting leads—still, you try to smile back.
“Ed, hello. Morning, yes. Good, not so sure”, you say and let out an exhausted kind of laugh.
Ed frowns a little and walks closer to you, looking at you face with concern.
“Are you feeling unwell, Detective?”
“No, no… I’m just a little tired that is all” you try to smile more convincingly. Ed was always kind to you, he was a sweetheart, but you didn’t want to trouble him with your problems.
“Perhaps…” He clears his throat before continuing. “Perhaps I know something that might help with that”.
“Yeah? What is it?”
“A necessity to some, a treasure to many, I’m best enjoyed among pleasant company. Some like me hot, some like me cold. Some prefer mild, some like me bold. What am I?” His smiles broads as he waits for you to answer his riddle.
You press your lips together and think of the answer. You’re not sure.
“Mm… Is it Coffee?”
“Yes, Coffee. We should get some” he says surprising you. Was he asking you out? Suddenly you see that his face reddens. “I-I mean…! I didn’t-, I can get it for you, you don’t need to come… Well, you can come, but I wasn’t implying that-”
“Yes, Detective?” He swallows, his fingers clenched together over his chest. And the way he looks at you, like a scared puppy, you can only smile with a funny feeling in your stomach.
“I would love to go out to get some coffee with you” you reply. He looks at you a little confused, and embarrassed. He settles his glasses.
“Would you really?”
“Yes”, you smile at him, and stretch out a hand to him. “Lets go”.
He looks puzzled.
“Now? But I have this body that-”
“Well, he’s not getting anywhere now, is he?” You say and Ed lets out a giggle.
“No. I suppose no” he takes you hand shyly and you smile at each other.
