The coffee breaks are his favourite part of the day.
Mainly because it means he can be with her.
They met the first time over coffee, and he was immediately entranced.
The curves of her hips, her raven-black hair cascading past her shoulders and that smooth, crispy voice of hers.
He’d always try to catch her during the coffee breaks, be the first one there to make fresh coffee and be able to be the one to pour her the cup. He even knows how she likes it; black, no cream, just the addition of one sugar cube.
Sweet coffee for a sweet girl, he’d think but never say aloud. (Well, as “sweet” as an assassin could get obviously.)
Today, however, he would try to muster up the courage to extend the conversation to more than just “Want a cup of coffee?”
So he promptly goes to the small cafeteria cabin to wait until he hears her footsteps approaching and then fills the reservoir with boiled water. His face lights up when she’s watching him through the door frame and he merrily announces, “Fresh pot.”
When she dismisses her offer with a quick “No thanks,” and a wave of the hand, he smiles anyways, forcing the sadness away.
It’s only when she’s out of sight and he turns around, just to make sure she can’t see, that his smile falters. He can only hope he’ll have more luck next time.
