"I'm getting your hair wet." Mason mumbled as he pulled away from me.

"Mason, let me take you to dinner."

I surprised both of us with those words. They seemed to just slip out. "I mean, you have to eat something and I'm hungry too. The last twenty-four hours have been a nightmare. Let's just get out."

"Are you asking me on a date?" His heart wasn't in his teasing. His words sounded flat with no grin to accompany them.

"I'm serious. These walls will suffocate you, let's get out." I found his coat draped over a chair. I held it out to him. He waited a couple of seconds before finally taking it from me.

Without another word we left his apartment house and headed down the street to a small twenty-four hour coffee house.

Mason grabbed the menus and we seated ourselves. The next few minutes were spent studying the choices. Well, Mason studied the choices, I panicked. I hate situations like this! I don't know what to say to make Mason feel better. That's just it! Nothing I could say would make him feel better. I can't bring his mother back, I can't relieve his sadness. I hate this helpless feeling. I don't want to make it worse for him, but I have no experience in this area.

With my confidence slowly draining away, I looked up at Mason. He brow was furrowed as he tried to decide what to eat. His face was drawn, his eyes sad. His eyes used to sparkle, his lips in a constant grin. His eyes are dull now, his lips pulled downward making him appear stern and forbidding. I'm not used to this Mason. This Mason seems to be a completely different Mason then the one I knew.

"Something wrong?"

I return my gaze to him to find him staring at me. "No, I just can't decided between the steak or the chicken."

Mason shrugged. "Chickens healthier, steak tastes better. Your choice."

I shook my head in amusement. He makes it sound so simple.

"Thanks for coming with me."

"You were right, I needed to get out. If I get used to staying at home I'll never want to leave."

"Will you be going back to work tomorrow?" I asked as I watched the waitress pour coffee in an older gentleman's mug.

"Technically, I could take bereavement. But I don't think I'm going to do that."

"Why?"

"Because you were right."

I didn't have to ask what about, I knew. "Does your building allow pets?" I asked.

"Yeah."

"Mine doesn't."

Mason frowned and I could tell he was trying to think of why I asked that. "Do you have a pet you want me to store for you?"

"Mason." I laughed, "you don't store pets."

"Whatever you call it."

"You mean you would let a p

eel better not my hatred for a certain waitress.

Even so, I waited until she was out of earshot before I spoke. "My new friend, Lena is coming over to Lydia's on Monday night to watch a movie. I'd really like it if you would come. If you want to that is."

"What's playing?" He teased as he speared a piece of his meatloaf.

"Clue."

Masons nose wrinkled, "You like that movie?"

"Not really." I shrugged. "But it's Lydia's favorite and Lena hasn't seen it before."

"So I should probably come so you don't cry from boredom?"

"If you have other plans you don't-"

"I'll be there, Livy. And thank you."

"What for?" I asked in surprise.

"For trying to cheer me up, I appreciate you being here."

"You know... If you ever want to talk about her or cry or you just don't want to be alone, I'll always be here."

Mason's hand slid across the table and covered over mine. "I know. Thank you."

"Anytime."

"Here's you check." The waitress said, she glared at me while handing Mason the check. Turning, she went back to the counter. I frowned as Mason read the amount. On the back of the check, there was a heart drawn in pen. A phone number was on the inside of the heart.

"Mason?"

"Hmmm?" He asked as he pulled out his wallet.

"Let's not eat here again."

Mason looked up with a grin. "Sure, Liv."

He didn't make another comment about it and I was glad.
