AN: Last chapter guys. Thanks for the fun run (no joke intended). Hopefully the last part with Jim and Pam is realistic enough with sticking to the shows basis. See you soon for the next story!Receptionist Day Chapter 6 Just The Best Party
Just The Best Party
"This music rocks," Andy exclaimed as he broke into a dance routine to an a cappella rendition of the song 'Let's Get it Started' by The Black-Eyed Peas. His body moved sporadically between hammer-dancing, moon walking, and the robot.
Dwight stood by the snack table with several others, "These beets are directly from my farm, some of the finest too," Dwight exclaimed as he bit into one, his teeth turned a disgusting shade of purple.
"There's so many different kinds of M&M's," Kevin's eyes grew big as he took in the separate bowls for each, "Plain, peanut, crispy, toffee, almond," he licked his lips and started pouring the candies onto his paper plate.
Stanley chuckled as he dipped his pretzel into the chocolate sauce that sat in a bowl beside the tray of soft pretzels. There was a variety of toppings that he was so glad to see, he could barely keep his book of crosswords underneath his arm.
"People always look down on figure skating," Oscar divulged to Angela who stood beside him eating a piece of cake, "They say it's not a real sport, but it's not supposed to be a sport. It's supposed to be an art form."
They were both standing in front of the television that was set to a figure skating championship game, "I can see that," Angela agreed with a nod of her head.
Oscar looked at her with surprise, then down at the piece of cake that she seemed to be enjoying, "Is the cake any good?"
She smiled as she cut off another piece, "Pam wanted a cake like a cat, so I got it made in the shape of Sprinkles. It's delicious."
"Get stupid," Andy shouted to the music as he moved around the pair with a plastic cup in his hand and a party hat on his head. He worked his way around the room passing Michael and Kelly.
"You should clean behind your ears more often," Michael suggested as he reached behind Kelly's ear and pulled out a quarter.
She squealed with delight as he handed the coin over to her, and didn't notice the bulge of quarters in Michael's jacket, "Oh my God, Michael, that was so cool, how did you do it?"
Michael smiled and looked to Phyllis and Bob who were watching him mirthfully, "It's just magic," he shrugged, "Some of us just have talent."
"Speaking of talent," Phyllis leaned forward and pointed to a picture of Brad Pitt, "What movie is that from Kelly."
Kelly gasped and placed her hand on her chest,"It's from 'Legends of the Fall', it has to be the best movie out there, it's so romantic. Have you seen it?"
Phyllis looked at Bob as they both shook their heads, "No, we haven't."
"Oh my God," Kelly practically screamed, "I'm totally going to bring it tomorrow and lend it to you; you'll thank me so much. I know you're going to love it Phyllis," Kelly Smiled happily.
"Let's get cuckoo," Andy sang in falsetto, "Man this party rocks!"
"Yeah," Michael nodded in agreement from where he stood inspecting the picture of Brad Pitt thoroughly, "But Pam sure likes a lot of weird things."
It was dark outside as the camera panned close to an apartment building. Moving closer to a first floor apartment, through a window with the blinds pulled back Pam and Jim could be seen in a small kitchen. Jim was underneath her sink, lying directly below a pipe with a wrench in his hand, while Pam stood against the doorway with a mug of tea in her hand.
"Sounds like you had all your bases covered," Jim spoke from under the sink, his shoulders barely fit through the cupboard entrance.
She giggled, while holding her mug with both hands, "I even had a bottle of tequila on reserve in case Meredith showed up."
Jim chuckled as he turned the wrench further, the grunting of the pipe could be heard, "They probably don't even notice that we're not there."
She shrugged, "I didn't want the party, besides there was nothing for you there."
"And here?" he questioned moving his head around so he could see her.
She took a sip of her drink and smiled, "Here, there's a pipe for you to fix."
He shook his head and rolled his eyes, "And that's not much of a challenge," he grunted as he turned the screw on the pipe further, "Anyone can—"
There was a snap as the pipe burst shooting a steady stream of water at Jim before he had a chance to shut off the water. He shoved his head out from underneath the sink and was completely drenched.
"Oh my God," Pam covered her mouth as she placed her mug onto the kitchen table. She burst out into a fit of laughter.
As water dripped down his body onto the floor he looked up at her with big eyes, "This is not funny."
His statement only made her laugh harder, "Oh my gosh, you're so drenched," she managed to gasp between giggles, "and you said anyone could fix it."
His eyes grew half shut as he looked at her, "You think this is funny because you're not soaked," he added as he walked towards her, "I think you need some consoling."
"No," she shook her head, still trying to catch her breath, and began to back up into the living room, "Don't even think about it Jim."
"But I have a hug from Andy, that he desperately wants me to give to you," Jim informed as he took off after her, sliding across the kitchen floor and catching her from behind in the living room.
She let out a squeal as his damp, cold arms wrapped around her waist, "And you said there was nothing for you here."
He loosened his grip on her to allow them to be face-to-face, "You know that's not true," he added with a smile as he leaned down and captured her lips.
She smiled against his, "Was that from Andy too?"
"No," he added between another kiss, "This is all Halpert material."
She wrapped her arms around his neck, one of her hands snaked its way into his dampened hair and as another kiss started she added, "Good."
Slowly the kisses began to become more fervent, and the couple moved backwards down a hallway and disappeared through a doorway.
"This has to be the best Receptionist Day ever and I'll tell you why," Michael explained as he sat at his desk, still adorned in a cape and a top hat. A wand was in his hand, and he played with it as he spoke, "It's not because everyone had fun at the party and no one killed Pam," he shook his head and laughed, "And it's not because Pam and Jim didn't quit," he stopped laughing and became serious as he let his wand fall to the table, "it's because Toby wasn't here today. Because that would've just sucked."
Next Story - It is called, 'The Scare' and involves the top salesman of the year, a cancelled Halloween, and a big storyline concerning Jim and Pam (maybe even a, ahem, fight?). Look for the first chapter up in a day or too.
