so do you fondue

He's had a little skip in his step ever since he and Kate had gotten engaged--it's been nearly a month now, and he still feels the urge to do freakin' twirls and cartwheels every time he thinks that, every time he remembers that he's engaged to the most beautiful, most talented, most incredible woman in this city, and he'd say he has no idea how this happened but it only makes sense that the two most awesome people in Darrow would end up together--and today is no exception. What's even better is that his boss has returned from maternity leave so while he's still playing co-pilot before handing the reigns completely back over to her--which he will do gladly because goddamn, that whole thing with her having a baby had really put a damper in his life outside of the lab--the work load has at least been reduced, and he feels like he can breathe again.

He's on lunch now and it's with a twinge of disappointment that he texts Kate only to discover that she'd just gotten back to work from hers--it's impossible to plan lunch dates when they're working, neither of them ever have a set time and it all depends on how busy it is in the store or in the lab and because of that there are have been times when Newt hasn't even taken lunch at all--so he's really just wandering down the sidewalk for somewhere to eat.

He can't decide, and he's walked this line of shops and restaurants many, many times over the course of the past year, but he can't decide. He's staring up at a Burgerpit with a dismayed expression because he's eaten here three times this week. He's regretted it every time, though, so he heaves a sigh and turns to continue his way down the line. He doesn't see her and that's why he bumps into her, and it's with a yelp that he reaches out to grab her wrist before she fall backwards to the ground.

"Shit, I'm sorry!" he explains, making sure she's steady on her feet before releasing her because seriously, stranger danger and shit, not even on his part in this moment but on hers, and holds his hands up for extra measure, just to assure her that he'd meant no harm. "I totally blame the hunger pains, are you okay?"

Coraline Jones knew three things; firstly Kate would always be her friend and therefore she needed protecting, secondly that Kate's boyfriend worked near here somewhere and thirdly, she needed to be on the look out for a really, really old guy. Kate might say he was young but she knew the truth, Kate was dating an old geezer. She hadn't seen many really old guys who looked like they might be scientists though.

Walking along, she ignored her stomach as she looked up at each and every building and peered in through windows. She didn't see the guy until he almost knocked her down.

"It's okay, I'm fine." Coraline said, smiling in tired bemusement at the guy. He was old but he wasn't ancient. And he didn't look like the Science-y sort unless he was like Peter in that way. "You don't know where this lab thing is, do you? I'm looking for a really, really, really old guy who works there."

Coraline pressed her lips together at the evil, villain, lab sounding name. DARKLab. Really? This place had heroes in it and not one of them had investigated something whose name was literally DARKLab. Coraline was pretty sure it was going to be filled with evil geniuses. Or Mad Scientists. Or both. And Kate had said her boyfriend was good.

"No, his name is uh Gissler? Guysler. Gishler?" Coraline patted her pocket, pulling out the small piece of paper she had written his name on. Newton Geiszler. She held out the piece of paper, showing him the name. "Newton Geiszler. Old guy, very smart."

Coraline took a step back looking at him with carefully considering, narrowed eyes. Taking a long breath in, she pursed her lips together and made a face at him. Maybe Kate had a thing for people with glasses who saved the world? Otherwise she didn't really- he was super short. Like at least two- maybe three inches shorter than she was.

"Huh, so... what's a Kaiju? And do you always tell girls you saved the world? Is that your pick up line?" Coraline asked finally. And once she had started there was no stopping her. "Is that how you picked Kate up? Do you really have six doctorates? How old are you?"

As soon as he turns on his feet, Coraline follows him and furrows her brow when he enters somewhere she probably can't afford. Eating out was much more expensive than she had realised, she'd just have water that was always free.

"Genetically-altered amphibious creatures from our world or from space? I mean, did we do it to ourselves or was it an invasion? How did they survive the depths and pressure under the water and then also out of it? Did they um like- did they get the bends if they emerged from the water too quickly?" Coraline asked curiously, the stream of questions continuing to pour out as she thought of them. Newt was in trouble, he'd let her get her stride in the questioning stakes. "You know thirty-six is old, right? Kate said you had one in music which just seems dumb. What's the um others? Biology? Genetics? Astro-biology?"
