You faked another laugh as the guy across from you made another rude joke. You met him at a conference for the park, he showed interest in your work with the Triceratops. He was funny at first and when he asked you on a date you thought ‘what the hell?’, but now that you had actually talked with him you realized he didn’t care about them at all. He was only acting interested to get you to go out with him, or to get into your pants.
“So why Triceratops?” he asked abruptly.
Surprised he asked you anything about you at all you hesitated “What?”
“Why Triceratops? I mean, aren’t there more interesting dinosaurs?” he said chuckling to himself.
“All dinosaurs are interesting, it’s just that I find them the most interesting. It’s a personal preference really” you said bluntly.
Sensing your hostility towards your questions he cleared his throat awkwardly “Right. Umm, how long did you say you’ve been working here?”
“About two months” you said taking a sip of your drink.
Nodding his head he smiled at you “I would go for the raptors, like that guy at the park, what’s his name? Aiden?”
“Owen” you corrected
“Yeah, you know him well?” he asked, his voice hiding something
You had met Owen as soon as you came to the Island. He showed you around, took you under his wing. And he appreciated your work with the triceratops. You became close friends. Not to mention, you kind of had a crush on him.
“Oh, nothing…well, I just-” leaning forward he continued quietly “I just met him briefly but he seems like kind of a douche-bag” he said bluntly.
Chuckling lightly, though not actually amused you nodded your head “Yeah, he tend to give that impression. But generally only to people he doesn’t like”
He raised his eyebrow “What could I have done to make him not like me?” he said offended
“Well, for one you insulted his techniques because you thought you could do better. But he probably wouldn’t like you much anyway, since you did just call him a douche-bag” you said monotone.
Owen didn’t say that he disliked this guy, but when they were talking you could see it in his stance, and the way he was ignoring what he was saying. You even thought he might punch him for a minute. But that is exactly why you didn’t tell him your date tonight was with him.
Staring at you for a moment he smiled hesitantly “You know him much more than you implied don’t you?”
You returned the smile “Yes. I was actually planning on going to see him when this date is over” you said, no longer caring if you offended him.
“I have a feeling that’s now right?” he asked realizing he screwed up
“I’m gonna say yes”
