 Juliet runs through the darkened barracks, grateful for the lampposts that were lighting her way. Halfway to Ben's house, the rain had started, and with a vengeance, and within seconds she was soaked. There was little recourse but to book it to Ben's, and eventually she stood shivering on his doorstep, pounding on the door.

Ben goes to the door, surprised to hear someone knocking with the weather as it is. He sees a wet Juliet on his doorstep once he opens the door. It takes a moment for him to speak.

Juliet. Hello. You're wet.
Juliet cracks a smile at this, drawing her arms around herself. It was a bit cool tonight, and the rain wasn't helping.

And you have excellent powers of observation. Am I interrupting anything?

She shivers again.
Uh, no no. I was just relaxing a bit. Come in?
She steps in the door and stands dripping in his front hallway.

How are you?
Um, fine.

Do you...want a towel or a blanket or something?
I... that might be good.

She cringes at the puddle she's leaving, and runs her hand through her wet hair.

Sorry.
It's um. It's all right.

Ben turns and hurries--perhaps too quickly--down the hall. He returns with both a towel and a blanket.

Here you are. What brings you out in the rain?
Thanks.

I just wanted to see you, I guess!

Juliet briskly towels herself off and runs her fingers through her wet curls until they're tangle free. She clutches the blanket to her and looks around, holding the towel in her other hand.

Where can I put this?
Ben avoids looking at her as she dries off. When she's finished, he reaches for the towel.

I'll uh...take it.

You chose a bad night just to come see me.
Juliet hands him the towel and wraps the blanket around her shoulders.

Do you mean because of the rain? I suppose so... it certainly wasn't like this when I set out.

What are you up to this evening?
I hope the rain is not a bad omen that you should not have come to see me, then.

I was just having a glass of wine and reading. Would you like a glass?
She chuckles.

I'm sure it's not.

And I don't see the harm. It might warm me up a little.

She shivers and draws the blanket tighter around her.
It might.

Ben goes to the cupboard and gets another wine glass. He waves her over to the living room where he had been sitting.

Have a seat. Is red all right?
Red is just fine.

Are you sure you don't mind me sitting on the couch? I'm still a bit wet...
No, it's all right. Well, here...

He folds the towel and places it on the couch.

Sit on that, if you please.

He pours her a glass and sets it before her. He sits in the chair next to the couch.
Oh, sure.

Juliet sits on the towel and curls up under the blanket. She lifts her glass and sips at it, smiling wryly.

It's nice to be with the last of my drama-free friends.
Me? Drama free? I don't know about that.

Well. Relatively. For now, I suppose.

She sighs slightly and drinks more of her wine, thinking back on the events of the week.
Have they worked anything out?
Not as of yet. They're all working on it.

I hear you helped matters, though.

She gives him a slightly reproachful look, but it's hardly angry.

I didn't do anything. I just happened to be the one who brought Neil back into all of this mess.
Mhhmmm. And you weren't smirking at all while my three friends were fighting?
I wasn't smirking. I was trying to listen to what was going on.
Mmmhm.

Juliet says no more on the subject, as she's cut off by lightening streaking through the sky, followed by a clap of thunder.

Looks like I came indoors in the nick of time...
I'd say so. The Island does give us some amazing storms.

He watches the lightening for a moment and sips his wine.
