It had been the best place Emma could find with the little she could afford as rent and her unwillingness to have a stranger as a roommate. Sure, in ten years Bed-Stuy was going to be very hip, but this was now, and it was still Brooklyn. And it was still costing her a fortune at $650 a month. At least the brownstone her studio was in was in good repair, and Emma's little room had recently been redone, with new paint and windows, to better block out the noise of the street.

And despite the fact she'd only been there a few weeks, there were books everywhere. Emma was taking a double course load - again - and was doing her best to ignore the increasingly distracting texts that Jack kept sending her so she could focus on writing her paper on Dewey's philosophy of education against current teaching trends.

Yes, this is what she did for fun. And maths. Maybe it wasn't too late to add a maths class...

TEXT, SUNDAY AFTERNOON

No picture this time:

Are you offended by my taste in lingerie, or did you die? Should I call Hank? He told me to call if I was worried.

Dr. McCoy had said said no such thing, but Jack figured -- and he'd bank on being correct -- that Emma had no way of knowing for sure. And he disliked being ignored.

But I like twirling for you, Jack sent back, weighing his options. All right. No call to Hank.

He'd gotten her to react, which meant he'd won a few points, and Fandom-to-New York portals were actually fairly cheap once you factored in Jack's frequent traveler miles. Still a bit absurd for what was basically a booty call, but given he hadn't seen Emma in some weeks ...

He was in the portal hub in fifteen minutes, tapping at Emma's door within the hour.

Of course Jack would be there when she opened the door, looking -- if he said so himself -- quite ladylike in a print sundress and sandals.

"I wouldn't pick the lock," he said grinning at her innocently. "You need it functioning in this building."

Surprising Emma, when he could manage it, was priceless.

Jack laughed and kissed her on the forehead, moving to step into the foyer and close the door behind them as he did.

"Don't stand there gaping," he said. "It's rude, and anyhow I think we'll let rats in if we leave the door open."

"Because I like it," Jack said, deciding the pit bull and the rats were better shuddered at inwardly than further discussed. "I got bored and went shopping, and -- well, why not own one decent thing, if I'll be doing this every year anyhow?"

He looked down, smoothed the skirt over his hips. "I like the poppies."

"Breezy," Jack said, after a pause. "And I keep wanting to put my hands in my pockets and there aren't any. And my ankles are cold. Don't your ankles get cold?"

He smiled at her. "You asked me to spare you from the horrors of ramen again, darling. Remember? I'm here to take you to dinner."

And hopefully to finish what they started back in January, but Jack had some mental shields up so his filthy thoughts could be kept to himself for the moment.

Jack considered the question as he slipped into the cardigan and cuffed it at the sleeves. "What's the place that would make your classmates the most jealous if you dropped the name?" he asked. "No point having a dinner date in New Amsterdam if not to be seen, and I'll handle the bill if you convince them we have a reservation."

His eyes were approving as he took in the apartment. It was tiny, but showed taste.

Jack slid past her, flopped back on the futon in a very unladylike manner. He'd gotten the giggles in the cab on the way home, and was still recovering; little burbles of laughter escaped between his words.

"Fantastic. I am not going to eat for a month," he agreed. "How many bottles of champagne was that?"

"True enough, but this time I'll make it to breakfast," Jack granted, then -- eying her from under heavy lids -- added, "unless I decide you're the midnight snack."

It was playfully said, playfully meant, not entirely a joke. Emma smelled amazing.

Jack collapsed back into the pillows in a howl of giggles of his own.

"And I'm normally irresistible to dirty old men of particular tastes anyhow?" he asked. "It's too bad neither of us is in the market for a sugar daddy. We could have been set for life."

Or until Jack woke up a boy again, but even that might not be a dealbreaker with the proper lover.

Jack tried to talk, realized he was laughing too hard, gave up and just nodded his agreement.

"It's okay," he said. "That's why I let you take me home. You don't snore either. And you have better legs than me."

"Toned but short," Jack said critically, and ran a fingertip over Emma's knee and up to the hem of her skirt as if to make the point. "You have the lovely long legs. But I think my ass may be better."

Sorry, Emma; it was true.

"First, we aren't the same size, and second, why do you own leather pants?" Jack queried. "And ... ooh. C'n you make me look like a small blonde Bo?"
