the_gene_genie: (LoM - Bloody Ponces)
It's been a few weeks since he last saw her. The first one, he spent making up for not being able to drink the week before. The few after that - well. He's well aware that their last conversation didn't go too well. It seemed sensible to steer clear, and he wasn't all that happy with her either, was he?

But the awkwardness of the thing with Guppy has ebbed away a bit now, and he's been wondering what she's up to. Even if their last conversation was a bit crap, that's no reason not to see where they're at. So, in typical Gene Hunt style, he decides to take the bull by the horns. He still wants to go to Texas, and he still wants to see her. If that means another awkward conversation - well, so be it.

After checking she's not in the bar, and not in the stables, he heads up to her room. His knock is as bold as ever, no sign of nerves.

'You in there?'

Even after outright volunteering for this, it takes a while to talk himself into it. He supposes that, on some level, he was hoping he would make the offer, and she'd turn around and say she wasn't serious, or she was only trying to make a point or something. Anything that'd let him off the hook.

But no. She'd gone and got all grateful, and pleased about it. So now he has to follow through. Although yeah, he's thought about not doing it and telling her he has. But that's a bit underhand for him and besides, he's pretty sure Guppy would tell on him.

So. He's strengthened his nerve with a few stiff doubles, told himself to stop being a jessie, and reminded himself that there's potentially a really good payoff for going through with this. And so here he is, striding into the infirmary as if he owns the place.

'DOC!'

He's got to be around somewhere. He's never bloody anywhere else.

He doesn't drag his feet on the way down to the stables, though he's still not sure this is a good idea. But, fact is, much as he's tried to ignore the last row, it won't go away. He's told himself he doesn't care until he's blue in the face, but he's called himself a liar too. And yeah, he was really angry and he's still pissed off when he thinks about it. But he's not as pissed off as he was, and there's a lot he doesn't understand.

Gene doesn't like not understanding things. And he has no intention of hiding away from her either. When he has a problem, he either buries it until it goes away (doesn't seem to be working), or he faces it head on. Seeing as the first option seems to be a non-starter, the second it is.

So there's no trepidation as he walks into the building. None of his usual striding arrogance either though.

'You in here?'

It's been a trying few days, no doubt about it. And he's pretty damn sure they haven't seen the end of it. But it doesn't matter tonight. Tonight is about celebrating a job well done, and the person who did it. Whatever else is going on, this evening belongs to Shaz.

He marches into Luigi's with force. Everyone's happy, the music's loud, the drink is flowing. He has a knot in his stomach, but he ignores it. She did what she had to do, now he's doing what he has to do.

She looks small, standing in the kitchen, with her hands in held in front of her. She looks like her nerve has really gone.

He wasn't at all keen on this dating agency idea when she suggested it. Seems a bit dodgy to him - for one thing, dating agencies are for tossers. For another, it's quite likely that a murderer is prowling around this one. And lastly, he doesn't really want her going on dates with any of them. Even the ones who are not murderers. Especially not them, really. She'd be more likely to see them again.

But there is more to it than that, of course. He doesn't like putting any of his team at unnecessary risk, and this seems like it's inviting it. Potentially meeting a killer in his arena, on his hunting ground, rather than on their terms. She's probably right though; it'll cause a proper ruckus if they go around interviewing all the blokes registered there, and might scare the murderer off. He's not having that. Not after what happened to all those women. So he does the only thing he can to keep her safe; he gets in there and takes one for the team.

Which is why they're in his office, with an application form each, and he's pouring them a drink. Everyone else has gone, except Shaz.


This is more how it used to be. He likes it.

He's glad when she rides them out of town, away from where anyone might see this. It makes sense, of course. It'd be a bit stupid for her to be teaching him how to do this stuff in full view of the people who think he already knows how.

It feels weird to be back in the saddle after a few days out of it, though. Hurts, too. He'd thought these aches were going away but nope, they were only asleep. So it's a bit of an uncomfortable ride, especially coupled with the heat. He doesn't moan though. He'll be in trouble if she changes her mind about helping him here.

It's not that often they have the whole weekend off. Someone must be smiling down at them though because it's happened - for Gene, that means the match at Maine Road (and City pull off a frankly magnificent win against the poncey Londoners), home for the wife's dinner and then the pub, where he knows he'll be met by his team for a big night.

He knows this, because he told them so the night before, stalking out of his office at six to bellow;

'Weekend off, you lot! You know what that means. Railway Arms, half six tomorrow and raid your piggy banks. Any of you fairies cry off, I'll have you cleanin' the cells all of next week, got it?'

There had been mutterings of 'Yes, Guv' from all around the room and none of them had seemed reluctant - not even Tyler, really - so he knows it'll be a good 'un. It was slightly confusing to find a note in his pocket, in his own handwriting, informing him that he's got a bet on with Sam but that sort of thing has been happening more and more recently, so he's getting used to it, even if he still doesn't understand it. It generally works out in the end though.

So, when he stalks into the Railway Arms (ten minutes late, so they'll all be there and waiting) he doesn't even look around before hailing the room in general.

'Who's got me pint in, then?'

Room 6620 is a pretty generic sort of place. It looks like a basic hotel suite - double bed, table, a couple of chairs, a sofa. There are a few suits hanging, dry-cleaned, on the back of the bathroom door (he frowns at them, there are a couple there that
he’s never bought so his future self must have been around again) and a number of half-full bottles of Scotch and Firewhiskey on the table. The only thing that shows this room is really reserved for one person’s use are the posters hanging framed up above the bed. Two, cinema-size vintage prints,one from The Good, The Bad and the Ugly and the other, Gary Cooper in High Noon.

He aims Kate towards the bed.

‘Here. Lie down before you fall down.’
