AUTHORS NOTE: So this is a summer little list thing that I saw on Tumblr that I plan on doing (when I select my book becase I've already read Wuthering Heights) but I decided to have some writing fun with it too. It should, hopefully, be a one a day shot thing that lasts fifty days... I hope.
DISCLAIMER: I don't own the characters or the list.
[Read a Book]
Moving into the bullpen, Jackie froze when she saw Robbie sat in his chair with his glasses on and his feet up on the computer desk as he read a book. Robbie didn't read anything except from the odd case file and the sports section of the newspaper, both done begrudgingly because no one would tell him about the cases and none of them were interested in sports. It was only from reading them himself he'd ever work anything out.
"Robbie," she asked quietly as she slowly approached the table as not to startle him, "are you feeling alright?" She asked and he just looked up from the book with his eyebrows raised but she couldn't help but flash him a wide grin. "Oh come on, what the hell is this?" She asked reaching out and yanking hold of the book.
"It's called a book, Jackie. I seriously thought that a woman with your intelligence would know that," he commented sarcastically causing Jackie to now glare at him as she studied the front cover.
"I am well aware that it is a book but Robbie," she said waving it, "this isn't just a book. It's Wuthering Heights!" That was all she said as if it was all the argument she needed but he just continued looking at her. "It's a classic and has no pictures!" She teased brightly causing Robbie to reach back over and take the book back.
"I am well aware of that, Jackie." He said and she couldn't help but smile at the bite he said when he said her name as he flicked through the book. "I'm Jamie's summer project, okay?" He said shrugging his shoulders.
"And what does that involve exactly?" She asked feeling suddenly interested. It was very rare that Robbie had time with Jamie and to hear that Jamie had decided to do a whole project with his dad over the summer was simply fascinating! It was also amazing for their relationship.
"For fifty days, he has different tasks for me and today, day one," he pointed out shaking the book at her, "is to read a book that you've always wanted to read and I never really read it when we had to at school so I decided that maybe now was the time." She smiled at him and nodded her head.
"Well I think that's exciting." She smiled as she watched him settle back down into the book. "Do you want me to ruin the..." Before she even had time to finish her sentence, he was pointing at the door as a silent gesture for her to get out and she burst out laughing as she gathered up her belongings. "Enjoy it."
