Kenzi watched from the kitchen as her best friend eagerly answered her ringing phone, piquing her curiosity. She attempted to eavesdrop inconspicuously, pouring herself some Toastie Bun Buns, making more mess then breakfast as her eyes were glued to the back of the brunette's head, not her bowl. Bo deflated on answering and slumped on to the coach with her back to her. Despite her years of practise she had trouble making out the short lived conversation. The parts she did hear sounded boring anyway.
"Who was that?" The petite woman wandered over, cereal in hand, and plopped down next to her roomie as she ended the call. The Succubus' hand dropped into her lap still clutching her phone, staring at it listlessly.
"Earth to Bo!" Kenzi groaned, waving a hand in front of the brunette's face and bouncing in her seat, doing the perfect impression of an annoying, bratty, little sister.
"What?!" Bo growled, jerking back to reality. She whipped her gaze around menacingly onto the Goth girl who stopped moving abruptly and shrank away to the far end of the couch clutching her cereal. Bo closed her eyes, calming herself. Reaching out she placed a hand on her friend's thigh with a gentle squeeze.
"Sorry Kenz." She sighed and dropped her head back to rest on the back of the couch and stare up at the ceiling despondently.
"What's wrong chica?" The younger woman enquired, popping a piece of cereal into her mouth and chewing slowly as she surveyed the Fae with concern. Bo slid her eyes in Kenzi's direction and gave her a tight lipped smile, patted her thigh and withdrew her hand to rub her own crinkled forehead.
"Lauren cancelled my appointment. Apparently she's sick." Bo explained with a heavy sigh. Kenzi quirked a delicate eyebrow. "I think she's avoiding me."
"Oh I see..." The younger woman drawled nodding. After stopping to consider the statement for a moment she knitted her brows together and cocked her head. "I don't see. I thought we were avoiding her?"
"No... Well yes... Well maybe... I don't know!" Bo threw her hands up in frustration and looked to the girl exasperatedly. She really was not sure anymore. She had been so angry at the blonde but now the prospect of not seeing the doctor inexplicably irked her.
"Soooo... You were avoiding Doctor Frosty-pants but now you're not so sure? You remember what she did right? Cause it was totally shitty." Kenzi asked, exasperated, and painted on an overly dramatic 'I don't get it' face.
"Yeah I know Kenz, it was really shitty but..." She shrugged and got to her feet, pacing. "I was psyching myself up for this exam today and I got to thinking maybe I should give her another chance." Sensing Kenzi was about to interrupt she held up a finger to silence her. "Just hear me out ok?" The Goth girl sank back into the couch cushions, making a zipper motion over her mouth and continued chewing on her cereal. Bo wrapped her arms around herself and resumed wearing a groove in the floorboards.
"I'm not about to invite her to be best buddies or anything but perhaps I was a bit harsh. I mean, I never really let her explain and she did try to apologise. I just didn't want to hear it right then... Still not sure I do now, but she is kinda my doctor and she helps us out all the time with cases and stuff. At the very least we need to be able to be civil with each other. Don't you think?"
"Mmm I guess... but first I think we should kick her ass!" Kenzi replied energetically slamming her bowl down on the coffee table. "I mean I know I wasn't there – and thank God cause eww! - But sounds like she totally admitted to being the Ash's hoe! She played my best friend 'cause he let her off her leash, snapped his fingers and ordered her into your bed! For this she must be punished." Kenzi was on her feet too by this point, becoming more animated as she talked, Russian accent slipping in towards the end.
Bo dropped unceremoniously on to the couch looking despondent. Kenzi sighed and took a seat next to her, considering the situation for a moment.
"But..." Dark brown eyes snapped up to pale blue in surprise. "You also said, she said, she was trying to protect you which is always good in my books, even if she totally went about it ass backward... And she was right about Vex, you know." The Goth said begrudgingly with a small smile to her friend. "Besides she totally eye fucks you whenever you walk into a room, aint no fakin' that." She grinned as Bo chuckled and bashed the other woman playfully with a cushion.
"How do you always make everything about sex?" The Succubus grinned and giggled, grabbing her friend in a tight hug and messing up her immaculate wig.
"It's a skill." The Goth shrugged. "And you can speak Succubus, when it comes to you it is usually all about the sex. This situation is all about sex."
"Not this time, not exactly, it's more, I don't know... I really miss her Kenz..." Bo looked down at her hands, blinking a her eyes suddenly felt very moist. "I thought we... She can't really have been faking it could she?"
"I don't know babe, but if its hurting you this much you at least need to talk to her." The younger woman sighed, looking sympatheticly at her friend and pulling her into a hug. "Maybe you can work things out, if that's what you want."
"I thought you were on Team Dyson anyway?" Bo gave a watery chuckle, making air quotations and looking at her friend curiously.
"Bleh, not so much these days. That dude has been such a dick lately." Kenzi sulked. "That doesn't mean I'm on Team Lauren though. You have to figure it out for yourself but... If she was telling the truth about her intentions, however much she fucked it up, maybe you're right, maybe she deserves a chance to explain and what evs. Besides I kinda feel sorry for her..."
The succubus frowned. "Do explain."
"She had a shot with the most awesome gal in the world and she screwed it up... She must feel like crap. She probably needs a hug... not that I'll be giving her one but..." Kenzi shrugged nonchalantly.
"God, you are way too sweet sometimes." Bo grinned pouncing on her friend and sloppily kissing her on the cheek.
"Ahhh! No Bo-Bo! Get off Suckyface! You're not my type!" The petite girl laughed, playfully swatting at her best friend. Bo chuckled and jumped to her feet. Grabbing her leather jacket she made for the door.
"Where are you going?" Kenzi peered over the top of the couch.
"To see Lauren." Bo stated plainly with a smile and paused, hand on the door knob.
"Do you even know where she lives?" The Goth picked up her forgotten cereal and went back to picking at it.
"No but I'll look in her lab first. If she's avoiding me that's where she'll be. If she isn't there she's really sick and I'll convince someone to tell me where she is so I can go check on her. Lauren doesn't strike me as the type to take a sick day without a very good reason." The succubus explained turning the door knob.
"You're right, Geeky McNerd pants lives for prodding and poking Fae, not to mention the microscope withdrawal she'll have. You want me to come with?" The younger woman asked despite still being in her PJs and making no actual move to get up.
"No that's ok. Catch ya later Kenz. Oh and thanks for the chat." Bo smiled a wide affectionate smile that reached her eyes in her bestie's direction as she pulled the door open.
"No probs. If making up with the doc stops you moping around here, letting off emo vibes, I'm all for it." Kenzi mumbled to the empty doorway, eyes glued on Jungle Jeeves.
