DISCLAIMER: I own nothing but if I did then Jen and Roy would be together.
SUMMARY: A series of one shots looking at what should have happened in some of those much loved Roy/Jen moments in the IT Crowd.
A/N: Pretty please review as this is my first IT Crowd Story. Italics are flashbacks.
Title: He Said, She Said
Chapter 2 – Calamity Jen
He said: "Come on you crazy bitch."
She said: "Goodnight Roy."
He had steered her out of the room, arm wrapped firmly around her shoulders with no intention of letting go. He knew it was stupid but part of him had been jealous that she was obsessing over a pair of shoes when she should have been thinking of him. Since she had walked into the basement, trying desperately to look more intelligent than she was and pretending that she knew what she was doing, he had found himself thinking more and more about her. Hours later, he had felt even more stupid as he saw the pain the shoes were causing and could hardly believe that he had been envious of them earlier that morning. The fire brigade had gone, the fire had been put out and Moss had gone home with a slight concussion but overall it could have been worse. Roy had regained consciousness but refused to go to the hospital and a guilty-feeling Jen had offered to patch him up in her office.
"Roy, sit still and stop squirming." Jen sighed as she leant back on her heels and glared at him.
"It hurts." Roy pathetically sat on one of the chairs clad only in his t-shirt and boxers.
"I've said I'm sorry." Quickly leaning in while he was distracted, she wiped the antiseptic across his thigh before grabbing a plaster, some surgical tape and a gauze bandage from the first aid kit which rested beside her on the floor.
Wincing but remaining silent, Roy watched as she wrapped the wound and packed away the first aid kit. When he was sure that his voice wouldn't crack under the pain, he quietly muttered, "Thanks."
"It's okay." Leaning against the desk, she glared down at her feet. "Bloody shoes." Muttering under her breath, she tried to loosen them on her feet in the hope of getting any form of circulation back.
"Just take them off Jen." Offering her a small smirk, he added, "Why are you even wearing them when they clearly crush your feet?"
Shooting him a dirty look, she mumbled, "Because they're beautiful and…" Trailing off, she lowered her voice to a whisper and said, "I need them…I need them to get me noticed."
Standing up, Roy swallowed a wince and hobbled over to her desk before standing next to her and sighing. "You don't need them, plenty of people noticed you before the shoes and lots of people will without them."
She shook her head and mumbled something which Roy missed before saying, "Nobody ever notices me. Even my dates never last."
Taking in a deep breath, he looked down at the floor and refused to meet her eyes as he told her, "I noticed you."
Turning to look at him in surprise, she allowed a small smile to cross her lips. "You had to notice me, I'm your boss."
Still staring at the floor, he chuckled slightly. "Take the shoes off Jen…please." Finally looking up at her, he raised an eyebrow and smiled when she gently kicked off the offending footwear. "See, just as pretty without them." Looking away, he let out a small groan as he realised what he had just said.
Moving to stand in front of him, she raised a hand to cup his cheek. "Thanks Roy." Reaching up on tiptoes, she kissed his cheek before picking up the shoes and walking to the door. Looking back over her shoulder, she raised an eyebrow and asked, "Do you fancy going for a drink?"
He had said yes and they had gone back to Jen's place, realising that going out with no shoes wasn't the best idea in the world. He had seen how down she still was about the shoes and when she had thrown them in the trash, he had noticed the slight wince she gave when they hit the bin. Feeling sorry for her, he had agreed to let her pick the movie when she asked him if he wanted to stay for a while and had quietly sat through 'Beaches' even though he hated the movie. When he had said 'come on you crazy bitch' he had meant 'you drive me crazy' and later that night when she had said 'Goodnight Roy', she had meant 'Please stay'.
A/N: Pretty please review, I'm not sure how this chapter went but I watched the episode the other day and realised there weren't really any Roy/Jen moments in it.
