Notes: Pygmymuse, I realize this probably wasn't your intention in that vid, but this is the bunny that bit me.
Warnings: none, actually.

Don opened the door, wondering what his father's date would be like. Someone like Mom? Her mirror opposite? This dinner would be different, Don knew. This time, there wouldn't be any of Charlie's superiors or friends at the table. Just Don and Robin...and Dad and his date.

"Terry," Don said.

"Hey Don," she said.

"Well this is a surprise. Come on in. Have a seat, we're still waiting for my dad's date to show up."

"Not any more."

Don looked at her, the little gears in his head too stunned to piece this together. He could only think two things: one, the smile on his dad' face when Charlie asked 'how do you know that that's really a woman you're talking to on the internet?'...that and, "Your ex didn't work out? What'm I saying," Don said, shaking his head. "Sorry."

"It's okay," Terry said.

Charlie stopped as he and Amita were heading for the front door. "No," he said quietly. "Terry?"

The idea, on paper, of Dad dating, it's different from the witnessing of it, eh, bro? Don thought.

"Oh good," Alan said, coming out of the kitchen with Robin. "You're here."

the end
