Owen really couldn't argue with Lynne's request to get that drink someplace she didn't work. It was like... Well, he couldn't think of what it was like, but it was perfectly understandable. And he knew a few places for them to go. He thought briefly that this could be misconstrued as a pity date, but she brushed her hair behind her ears, and he couldn't help but think how beautiful she looked. Maybe after a few more drinks he'll be back in the mood for that shag.

"Time out...I just gave you a completely free pass to run away and you still want to buy me a drink? Does that mean...we can still..." she paused again and cleared her throat. "Relax...together after?"

He smirked at her. He wasn't sure if this her statement could be called tactful, but he liked it. "I don't know, depends on how tense I am later." His mischievous grin found itself back on his face.

"I don't know, depends on how tense I am later."

For a second, Lynne thought perhaps that was his way of telling her to get off it, it wasn't happening, but then the mischievous grin had returned and she thought maybe her less-than-subtle request had been, if nothing else, worth his consideration. She wasn't exactly back in the game, but she also wasn't sitting on the bench, so there was still hope.

"Well," she said a little more nonchalantly, "your call." Ball was in his court and he could take her up on it or politely decline by calling it a night after the drink. She hoped for the former, but promised herself not to be terribly disappointed by the latter, should he choose it.

Lynne looked back down at her watch. "Time's up," she said, reaching behind herself and untying her apron, tossing it carelessly behind herself and brushing her hair over her shoulders in an attempt to cover some of the skin that had only been covered by the apron. Normally she wouldn't have had to wear one, but the big boss had been in earlier and had been none-too-pleased with the low neckline on her tanktop. It had been meant to get her tips and normally, it would've worked. She had to wonder if the stupid apron was part of her low funds issue for the night.

"Ready to roll?" she asked. Her heart started racing again, against her will. He'd either stick with his word or think better of it and say good night. Her stomach turned with nervousness as she waited to see which.

Owen liked how Lynne shrugged off the idea of 'relaxing', acting like it wasn't going to be the main event for the night.

"Time's up."

He drank down what was left of his drink as she removed her apron. She was wearing a tank top with a plunging neckline. She tried to cover herself up with her hair. Owen found the whole thing quite pleasing, the idea of that shag growing stronger.

"Ready to roll?"

"Yeah, sure," he said, his mood lightening further. "Where would you like to go?" He pushed the thought of 'relaxing' with her out of his mind for the moment. He'd have a drink and see where it took them.

"Where would you like to go?"

Lynne shrugged. "Don't get out much. This is the only place I know. I was kind of hoping you'd have an idea," she admitted sheepishly, blushing when she'd seen his eyes roam away from her face when she'd pushed her hair to cover herself a little more efficiently. She let it slide and decided just to be flattered by it rather than risk screwing up again by jokingly calling him on it.

"First things first, though, chief," Lynne said, taking his glass and putting it back behind the bar with the rest of the dirty ones she'd collected during her shift. "Gotta pay the bill. You're cute, but not that cute," she joked, winking at him and printing out Owen's bill on the register. She handed it to him and excused herself to clock out for the night.

Owen took the bill and read it over as Lynne went to clock out. He paid it in cash and left her his usual tip, after all, he was buying her a drink. He could think of a few places to go for that drink that weren't too far from here, but some of them weren't altogether nice places. There was a real nice place about two blocks away, Owen remembered. A bit posh, but that never hurt anybody. Yeah, he'd take her there. His dark flash from earlier was gone now, he looked forward to this date, or whatever, and what would follow, he figured she was willing enough, and now he was, too, so it was a sure thing.

He smiled at her as she emerged from the back.

There was the smile again, genuine and completely sexy to Lynne. She pressed a few buttons on the register and took Owen's money. "Thanks," she said as she shoved the tip unceremoniously into her back pocket and put the rest in the drawer. When the receipt was printed, she handed it to Owen and came out from behind the bar.

"Where to?" she asked as she tugged the bottom hem of her tanktop back down over the waist of her jeans. She hated the way it felt when the damn thing rode up her stomach, but it was a small price to pay for the tips it usually pulled in for her.

Lynne looked over at Owen and smiled back, raising her eyebrows as she waited for him to lead the way.

Owen nodded curtly when Lynne thanked him for the tip. He received his copy of the receipt and mimicked her motion of stuffing the paper into his back pocket.

"Where to?"

She tugged a bit at her tank top and Owen tried not to look to hungrily at her. He regained eye contact and said, "I know a place, it's real close... Pretty good, too." He offered her his arm as charmingly as he could and smiled, "Shall we, then?"

Owen held out his arm to her. "Shall we, then?"

Lynne giggled a little. "Charming with a side of chivalry, just the way I like it," she laughed, linking her arm through his and allowing him to lead the way.

"So, you know what I do...what do you do for a living, Owen Harper?" she asked, looking over at him as they walked.

"Charming with a side of chivalry, just the way I like it,"

Owen cocked an amused eyebrow at her and smiled to himself as he led her out of the bar and down the street.

"So, you know what I do...what do you do for a living, Owen Harper?"

He knew it'd come up eventually. He couldn't tell her he worked for Torchwood, unless he planned on RetConning her later...

"I'm a doctor," he said, looking back at her, hoping she didn't press the subject any further. He brought his gaze back to his path and continued on.

"I'm a doctor,"

Lynne looked over at him, impressed and surprised. He didn't look like any doctor she'd ever encountered. Young, casual, laid back, and good looking? If Lynne had ever been to a doctor that looked like Owen she'd have made office visits a much more regular thing. "Yeah? Like...a medical doctor or a psychiatrist or...?" she asked.

Part of her, while impressed, was disappointed. It figured her first date, or whatever they were doing, would be with someone who was successful and made a lot of money. Inwardly, she rolled her eyes. Of course he's loaded...probably married, too, for that matter, since that's just my fucking luck... she thought to herself miserably, carefully maintaining her pleasantly interested expression.

"Medical," he replied, "what else?" He tried smiling at her, but something else seemed to be on her mind. The both fell silent for the rest of the walk.

"Here we are, then," he said, opening the door to the club. It was comfortable, though a bit upscale, with post-modern artwork on the walls and oddly shaped chairs around coffee tables. Okay, so it wasn't exactly a pub, but it was a good place for a drink. He turned and looked at her.

"You alright?"

"Medical," he replied, "what else?"

"Fair enough," she replied with a weak smile. Yeah, he was way too good to be true. Now it was just time to wait it out and see what the Atomic Flaw was going to be. Every time she'd met a guy that seemed too good to be true, he usually had some skeletons in his closet - it felt more epic to call those the Atomic Flaw and so, she did. In her head, anyway.

"Here we are, then," he said, opening the door to the club.

Lynne looked over at him and smiled a little more genuinely. He opened doors for women, too? His Atomic Flaw was bound to be blinding at this rate, there were so many things about Owen that she liked so far.

"You alright?"

"Huh?" she asked quickly, distracted. "Yeah, I'm good," she lied and looked away from him again as she made her way inside the club. "Wow, this place is really cool, Owen..." she breathed. A little more upscale than she'd been expecting, that was for sure, but it had an interesting, artistic theme to it. She looked back at him. "You know, you could've just taken me to a dive bar. I'm already willing to sleep with you," she deadpanned. A second later, she couldn't hold back her giggles and her serious facade was broken.

She looked back at him. "You know, you could've just taken me to a dive bar. I'm already willing to sleep with you," she deadpanned.

A bit more forward than he was expecting. Owen looked at her, a bit shocked at her bluntness, but not really surprised by what she was saying.

"Do you... want to forget the drink, then?" he said jokingly, but serious, when she started giggling.

It was a long hard day for Toshiko as she walked into the club, hopefully not seeing anyone she knew. She planned to just get a few drinks to get a buzz and be out of there. Sure, it was unusual for Tosh to just decide to get drunk, but hell with that kind of work day she needed it.

Ah, the atmosphere was nice as she passed the people dancing and into the seated areas. Going up to the bartender she ordered her drink on the rocks, and almost chugged it.

A girl over to her left was giggling, rather loudly and upon instinct she turned around to see who it was. A nice looking girl, she hadn't seen her around here before. Tosh heard an oh-too-familiar grunt and looked at the girl's companion. It was Owen.

Just the person she'd like to see.

If hell was all that was left, that is.

"So," Toshiko waltzed over to Owen and his new presumable victim. "What the hell are you doing here?"

"Do you... want to forget the drink, then?"

Lynne looked back at Owen, a little surprised. That was all she had to do? God, that had been so easy! If she'd known that, she'd just have been blunt from the very beginning. She grinned at him and opened her mouth to reply when they were interrupted.

A pretty Asian girl, a bit shorter than Lynne herself, had approached.

"So," Toshiko waltzed over to Owen and his new presumable victim. "What the hell are you doing here?"

She looked vaguely familiar, but Lynne couldn't figure out why. Maybe she'd seen her come in with one of The Regulars once or twice? Maybe with Owen and she just hadn't bothered to notice. Lynne looked away from the new comer and back at Owen. "One of your mates...?" she asked suggestively, frowning slightly.

"One of your mates...?" she asked suggestively, frowning slightly.

"This is Tosh, we work together," he said, trying so very hard to not hurt Tosh's feelings. He hadn't expected her to be here, and he felt a twinge of guilt. He knew he promised her a date, but he also said he wouldn't stop flirting. "Tosh, this is Lynne," he tried to smile, but the looks on either woman's face was not encouraging.

"This is Tosh, we work together,"

Lynne looked back at the woman named Tosh. Owen said they worked together and Lynne was certain that was his way of trying to smooth things over, but Lynne's ex had left her for someone at work, so Owen's introduction wasn't helping matters any. Not that it was his fault, but...

"Hi," Lynne replied in a somewhat clipped voice that she was unable to hide. She held out a hand for Tosh to shake. "Nice to meet you," she lied, forcing a small smile mainly for Owen's benefit rather than her own or this woman's.

"One of your mates...?" she asked suggestively, frowning slightly.

No I'm his mother Tosh wanted to snap back. Jesus. She wasn't mad that Owen hadn't taken her on their promised date yet, and she knew he was still the "King of Flirts", but why did they have to come here, of all places?

"This is Tosh, we work together,"

Unfortunately.

"Hi, nice to meet you"

Tosh smiled, her natural smile. She was always good at faking it, ever since she was young with her family. Nothing was ever really wrong in the Sato household.

"It's nice to meet you too," She kept on smiling. "Oh I'm sorry, did I interrupt something? Maybe Owen trying to get you to his apartment? He's really good at that you know. Why in fact last week he just had to brag about how many women he's seduced. I mean, this man is a pro."

"Oh I'm sorry, did I interrupt something? Maybe Owen trying to get you to his apartment? He's really good at that you know. Why in fact last week he just had to brag about how many women he's seduced. I mean, this man is a pro."

Lynne stared back at the woman and had to surpress the urge to laugh. All right, so this was just a jealousy thing. She wasn't one of Owen's 'mates,' then. "Actually, we were on our way back to mine. Just thought we'd check this place out for a drink, first," Lynne lied coolly. She had no intention of taking Owen home with her...not when she had a roommate who would be coming home from work any time, now. "And I know. I'm a bartender. I see more than people think I do, sometimes," she added. "I don't actually mind," she finished smugly, her face beginning to hurt from the faked grin.

She looked away from Tosh and back at Owen. "I'm actually really not that much of a drinker, though," she said in reference to the question she'd been about to answer when Tosh had interrupted them. She looked straight into his eyes and waited for either an agreement or an excuse to stay, in which case, maybe she was wrong about this woman and it was better if Lynne just went home, after all.

Owen was shocked, to say the least. He had never seen Tosh behave this way before, he honestly didn't think she had it in her. He stared at her, eyes wide, while she and Lynne argued between each other.

"I'm actually really not that much of a drinker, though,"

"What?" he asked quickly, not really sure what had just happened. "Um," he stammered, "Right. I'm not that thirsty, either, really..."

He turned back to Tosh, still a bit confused. "I'll see you at work then," he said curtly, before escorting Lynne back into the street.

Owen bid Tosh good night, in not so many words, and escorted Lynne back outside. "Wow," Lynne said, eyes wide. "She an ex or something?" she asked. "And um..." she paused and crinkled her nose at him. "I don't actually want to go back to my place...I have a roommate..." she said, biting her lip. "Do...you live alone?"

"No," Owen replied "She's not an ex. We just work together. I think she has a bit of a crush on me, though," he added dumbly.
"Yeah, I live alone."

Owen was a bit surprised that Lynne was still willing to come home with him. He began to lead her back to his flat, glancing around for a taxi and to make sure Tosh hadn't decided to follow them. Dear God, was he going to have a rather stern chat with her when he got to work tomorrow.

What an odd night this had turned out to be.

"She's not an ex. We just work together. I think she has a bit of a crush on me, though,"

Lynne rolled her eyes and laughed a little. "Uh, y'think?" she asked, grinning. He said he lived alone. "Well...ball's still in your court, chief," she said. "You can take me there...or I can hail a cab and we can go our separate ways. You tell me. I'm flexible," she said. She paused and smirked. "In more ways than one, that is," she added boldly, tossing her hair back over her shoulder when the breeze started to blow it into her eyes uncomfortably.

Owen smirked. "Well, if you're still willing..." he said, finally spotting a cab. He almost missed hailing it down as Lynne brushed her hair behind her shoulders and he, for the first time that night, saw the full glory of her tank top. Catching himself, he called the cab down and opened the door, and followed her inside. He told the cab where they were heading and sat back, looking at those amazing eyes again.

"Well, if you're still willing..."

Lynne smirked back at him. You have no idea... she thought to herself. After tonight, she definitely wanted to...relax with Owen.

She caught her bottom lip between her teeth to hold back a giggle when he nearly missed the cab and after he hailed it successfully, climbed in behind her, and gave the driver directions, Lynne looked over at him. She wet her lips, leaned closer and whispered in his ear, "I totally saw that, just so you know." She leaned back again and grinned mischievously. "I'm pretty tense after all that with your work friend, I have to say..." she said, only half-joking.
