She bounds up to him, enthusiastic as a puppy, and asks how she can help him.

Peter's caught gaping, pleasantly stunned by both her charming smile and her fresh-faced enthusiasm.

He fumbles his badge and introduces himself on autopilot, launching into his questions before she's even had a chance to introduce herself.

She answers his queries with a brisk competency that impresses him even more. He's got a bit of a thing for strong intelligent women. This one in particular is distracting him enough he has to keep referring to his notepad as if he's looking up questions when he's really searching his brain for reasons to keep her around.

She hands him her business card when he's all out of ideas.

Elizabeth, the card reads.

"Call me El," she adds flirtatiously.

"Thank you... El..." he stammers.


He watches her walk away and approach someone new just walking in with the same boundless energy and upbeat nature.

The case notes are shoved, forgotten, into his pocket and he has to remember how to get his feet to move so he can leave and not look like a love-sick dolt, staring after her.

He'll be back. Of this, he's certain.

I always love some Peter/El romance. Especially ideas on how it started out. Peter would have been knocked flat but El's charms.

AHAH. Peter absolutely has a type. If I wrote WC fic I would explore that theme a lot.

Awwww, that's really cute. :) I can totally see Peter being smitten with El just like that.
