Are you going to ask?

Emma watched Jack enter the café.

He glanced around, his gaze briefly staying on her, then took a seat as far away as possible.

She waited five minutes before heading over.

‘Are you avoiding me?’

‘No.’ He continued to stare at his coffee.

‘You’re ignoring me at work as well.’

‘I … I didn’t want to make you uncomfortable.’

‘I’d have told you if I were. There’s a difference between flirting and harassment, Jack.’




‘Are you going to ask?’


‘What you want to ask.’


‘Do I have to spell it out? A date.’



A drabble is a story of exactly 100 words.

You know, I like Emma, Rob. Actually, you've drawn both characters really well. Makes me wonder what happens to them.
