He Likes Her But Cannot Say It

The afternoon in the police station is kind of dull today, it seldom happens that his desk phone is silent and today is one of those unusual days. “Crime must be having a day off too, that's good,” Earl murmurs to himself as he browses the internet and giving the phone a glance for the nth time.

“Hey Earl, the suspect for the murder in the 65th St. last night has been brought in for interrogation, do you wanna come with me to check on him?” his partner, Alicia Martinez, shouted from across the room. He looked at her, smiled and said, “Sure, why not?” They have been partners for 3 years now and all this time, he secretly likes her but don’t have the courage to tell her.

The slender female police officer turned around headed for the interrogation room without waiting for him. He caught up with her in the hallway and they walked silently. “By the way, what are you doing later, it’s almost 5:00 PM, I was thinking of grabbing a burger for dinner, why don't you join me.” Earl asked and offered in his casual tone.

“A burger for dinner haha, oh Earl, when will you ever asked me to join you for a ’real‘ dinner?” Alicia replied as she laugh loudly, Earl’s heart started to beat fast and he caught Alicia looking at him and so is he, he cannot take his eyes out of her.

Then they both laugh, “Sure, burger will be great haha!” Alicia said, and they both started laughing…
