Disclaimer: Not mine, don't own nothin'
It was a beautiful night for such an event – the sky was cloudless, leaving the stars shining brightly and there was a slight cool breeze in the air.
The hall was immaculately decorated with everything looking lavish and decadent, as it should. Music was playing and a few couples have even hit the dance floor.
Jane led Kristina Frye, his date for the evening, out of the passenger seat of his blue Citroen and into the hall. She was smiling brightly, as was he, although his was more of an act than his true feelings. He really didn't want to be here tonight, charming a bunch of rich bigwigs, as Lisbon so eloquently put it. But the event was compulsory and he had to come, so he might as well make the best of it.
He found the team, chatting by a table and led Kristina to it. Rigsby and Cho were dressed in tuxedos, like himself, both looking as uncomfortable with the situation as he felt. Grace took the situation, as he knew she would, to play princess for the night and wore a lavish gown, suiting the occasion. Lisbon was nowhere in sight, but he was sure she was just out mingling with the rich folk.
'So… remind me why we're here again?' he asked, sitting down at an available chair and leaning his arms against the table behind him, looking out to the crowd.
'All the agencies in the area are coming together to do some fundraising or something or other…' Cho stated, not bothering to go into it.
'Here she comes now.'
Jane looked out to the crowd and his breath hitched in his throat. Lisbon has indeed been mingling, and in result, was looking very relieved to be getting a chance to get away from it. But her relieved expression wasn't what had him staring. She was wearing the most magnificent dress he had ever seen. He had seen her in a dress before, at the previous gala they had to attend, but that was nothing compared to this.
The fabric was shiny and deep purple, contrasting beautifully with her pale skin. It's sleeves moved over her shoulders from behind her back and straight down, leaving her neck and chest revealed, and it went down to the floor, flowing at her feet as she moved across the floor. Her hair was straightened and it fell across her shoulders, gleaming in the dimmed lighting. Was this his Lisbon?
She smiled her beautiful smile when she reached the team and greeted Kristina (who Jane had forgotten about for the moment) warmly.
'Kristina, it's so nice to see yo…'
'Wow.' Jane interrupted her speech and continued to stare, before catching himself, and coughing to fill the awkward silence that followed his outburst.
'Hmm, you look… you look nice, Lisbon.'
At this she blushed. 'Thank you, Jane. So how is everyone enjoying the evening?'
Chit-chat was getting stale and Kristina was starting to throw shameless hints to go dancing. Jane, being super-perceptive, caught them, but decided not to react to them. He wasn't in the mood to dance. With Kristina, anyway.
Rigsby and Van Pelt had disappeared to the dance floor for a "friendly co-worker-dance", leaving Cho, Kristina, Lisbon and himself making small talk, waiting for the minutes to go by.
They were in the middle of telling Kristina about Jane's latest antics, when a tall man walked up to Lisbon and put his hands over her eyes. He signaled to them they should stay quiet, causing Kristina and Lisbon to giggle and Jane to become suspicious and… no, not jealous. No way he could be jealous. This is Lisbon, right. Lisbon his boss, Lisbon his co-worker, Lisbon his friend. Nothing more. Then why was he so bothered by the man performing cutesy couple-antics with her?
'Okay, seriously, who is this?' Lisbon laughed, trying to pull the hands of her eyes with no success. This made the mystery man laugh.
The sound of his laughter brought a look of recognition to Lisbon's face and she giggled – Giggle? His Lisbon, giggling? – and turned around, taking him into an embrace. Okay, giggling he might be able to handle, but Lisbon was very anti-PDA. And she was hugging this imposing stranger! Jane could almost not keep the look of disgust off his face.
Who is this guy?
