Conversation of The Day #8

He stood in front of the tables, waiting for assistance, but no one seemed to be around.

"Hmm, where is everybody?" a voice behind him said.

He turned round to face the voice and saw her standing there with a slightly puzzled look on her face.

He knew her, but not by name. Nor did she know him. He saw her every time he passed by her work bench on his way towards the fermentation lab. She was wearing her white lab coat as usual but he couldn't help noticing that she was wearing heels today. He never saw anyone wear heels at work before. The nature of their job involved a lot of standing and walking, and wearing heels would be extremely uncomfortable. Perhaps she had a date later.

"I don't know. I've been waiting here for a while. I guess they're busy," he said, visually scanning the place once more. "What are you looking for?"

"Well, I just wanted to check the freezers over there," she said, pointing to one just a few meters away. "To see if we have enough supplies for our prep tomorrow."

"Go ahead and check. I'm sure they won't mind."

"No! They might think I'm stealing or something," she said in rather hushed tone.

"No way," he said, nonchalantly shaking his head. "With that cute face of yours, they're not going to suspect a thing."

She smiled at him for a moment, then they started laughing.
