It wasn’t really…proper…for Rose to have a crush on one of the men who worked with her father. For one thing he was a good ten years older than her. For another…well, he worked with her father.
But Rose really couldn’t help it.
"Hi Dad," she greeted Pete happily as she followed the secretary into the office. Pete looked up from his work, smiling and standing, walking around the desk and kissing his daughter’s cheek.
"Hey sweetheart. Five more minutes okay?"
“Dad…” He always did this. “I’ve only got a half hour break before I have to get back to class.”
"I know. Five minutes, I promise."
Of course, Dr. Noble chose that exact moment to walk in with another report. Rose raised an eyebrow at Pete, and he sighed. “Maybe not, then.”
"I should probably just go get lunch, huh?"
Pete gave her an apologetic smile, and Rose just rolled her eyes before hugging him. “I’ll see you at home, then.”
She was just heading down the stairs when she heard a voice call, “Ms. Tyler!”
The voice sent her heart skipping. She worked very hard to look casual as Dr. Noble caught up with her. “I was actually just leaving for lunch myself, do you mind if I join you?”
Oh. “O-Of course not,” Rose stuttered, smiling. “Definitely not. Feel free to join me. Free country, right?”
Yeah that was casual. Still, Dr. Noble was quite happy as they walked to the nearby diner together, chattering away about…well, Rose wasn’t exactly sure what. She was more focused on the sound of his voice than the words he was actually saying.
"Oh, listen to me prattling on," the man finally said with a chuckle, and Rose shook herself out of her trance. "How are classes going?"
"Oh…good. Really good. Great even." Babbling. Brilliant. She was just brilliant. They sat down in a booth, placing their orders. “Yeah. Been a good semester.”
"Apparently." Dr. Noble smiled, and Rose sighed. She must have looked like such a child to him.
Just a silly, silly child.

Is that your favorite version of the Facts of Life theme song? I hope you had the chance to watch the FOL reunion panel from earlier this month. (Kim Fields couldn’t be there as she just had a baby, but the other girls & Charlotte attended.)
Yeah I think that’s my favorite version.. those were the first episodes I remember seeing so even tho it got a little snazzier later I still look back on that one with fondness =) How about you?
