Dorks on V-dayEliot sat hunched slightly at her lab bench, eyes practically crossing as she loaded a new slide onto her microscope. Studying spiritual beings at a molecular level was usually engrossing, but she was running on three hours of sleep for the past two days, and her head pounded as if to remind her of all the extra stress she was dealing with.Dorks on V-day

Her love was out on another asinine mission, gone for a week, and both had agreed Valentine’s Day was a dumb holiday anyway. They didn’t need one day to pretend they loved each other extra, every day was 'Valentine's Day' for them anyway.
Despite that, Eliot wished Jo was here, even hovering over her in the lab like she liked to do, just because she knew it blew Eliot’s concentration. El shook her head at the memories and tried to focus, reaching into her pocket for a tissue to clean the microscope lens.
