That One Night
Barney Stinson was sat in a restaurant; waiting for his date.
They'd met on-line; on one of those crummy dating sites that Barney had resulted too. Things had never been the same since Robin left him for that stupid un-awesome Nick. Things would never be the same again; not without his Robin.
"Hey, are you Barney?" A shy looking, blonde girl asked, timidly.
Barney cleared his throat, "Em, yes, yes I am, you must be Rose?" He asked, stretching his slender hand out for her to shake, she took it and shook it clumsily.
"Yes, Rose Tyler." She smiled; Barney noted how her smile seemed to light up her whole face, making her features stand out just that little bit more.
"Well, Barney Stinson at your service, can I buy you a drink?"
Rose looked rather sheepish, before asking, "Yeah, could I have a whisky?" Barney almost; almost choked on his own whisky.
"Yeah, sure," He smiled, he liked her already.
A while later, they were sat drinking what Barney counted as their fifth whisky; Rose had definitely gone a little redder in the face. For the first time in a long time, Barney was actually enjoying the company of another female; and she was fully clothed!
"So, Rose," Barney began, "Tell me something about yourself," He smiled.
She put down her drink, and her face dropped a little, "Well, this is the first date I've been on in a while," She began; Barney sipped his own drink nervously, "There was another man, but I- I lost him. We did some crazy things together; things you would never believe-"
Barney raised his eyebrows, "Try me," He said, chuckling.
"Well, this is going to sound crazy, but we- we travelled together; I travelled with him a for a long time; he's got someone else now, though," Barney sighed, he knew how that felt. "Donna I think her name was, not that I'm bothered, obviously." Barney noticed she was holding her glass so tight her knuckles had gone white.
"Hey, he obviously didn't realise how awesome you were!" He soothed, placing his hand above hers.
"You- you think I'm awesome?" She peeked through her fringe, still shy.
"Yes! You're more than awesome, you're amazing. I've known you about three hours; and already I'd like to ask you out on another date, if that's okay?"
Rose brushed her fringe behind her ear with her fingers, "I'd like that, Barney, I really would."
Barney visibly relaxed; although he hadn't actually realised he had been tensed up. "Good, well, here's to our next date!" He held his (now empty) glass up; whilst she held hers up.
"To our next date!" She chorused, laughing; she too couldn't remember the last time she had had this much fun with anyone, let alone being on a date with, well, a human. She almost didn't think about how much she missed him as well; this date had been good for both Barney and Rose.
They continued their date late into the night; and not once did Barney want to leave; he was having way too much of a good time with her.
