Calling Jim at home (open to Jim)  
Pam was worried about Jim.  She realized that the stress of everything that was going on must have been starting to take it's toll on him, and she wasn't surprised.  She thought for a moment of visiting him, because she felt that she'd be better able to cheer him up and support him in person.  She was sure that his hair was growing kind of long, and that he'd need a hair cut, as well.   For right now, though, a call would have to suffice.  She needed to hear his voice, even if it wasn't in person, and even though she had just called him while he was at work.

She picked up her phone and dialed his number, listening to it ring.

Laughing, Jim sat up with some struggle. "I think Jen threw those out yesterday, actually." He leaned his head back and debated on whether putting the phone on speaker. "What's your pregunta?" Jim had gotten into the habit of asking Oscar to teach him a word in Spanish every day. Yesterday was pregunta. Today was libro.

Pam laughed. "Only yesterday? Had the leftovers started walking yet? Or were they just in the crawling stage?" She laughed again when Jim attempted to speak spanish. She'd learned a bit herself, but it had been a while since she'd used it. "My pregunta, Jim, is how long do you think it will take for your fiance and the pizza that she's holding to hace frio on your front porch?"

Jim chuckled softly, his hand running through his hair. Leftover chicken. Walking. What a thought.

"Whaaaat?" he asked slowly, not exactly sure if this was one of her silly pranks she'd pull, or if Pam really was standing outside his front door, with pizza. "Are you serious, Beesley?" Jim stared in the direction of the front door, not precisely sure what to do next. He stood up, eyes still in the same direction. "Now, if you're not on the other side of my door, I'm going to look like I'm crazy, I hope you realize that, Pamela."

Pam was reminded of the classic "Chicken crossing the road" jokes, and chuckled in spite of herself.

"I'm dead serious, Halpert. I'd knock, but I have my hands full. Though I could use my head..." She looked at the door for a moment, then shook her head. "Then I'd look like the crazy one. Though, the only way that you could find out for certain whether or not I was pranking you would be to open the door, wouldn't it?" She hoped that he would open the door. It was starting to rain. She cursed herself for having her hands full because she really wanted to hug him when he came to the door.

There he stood. On the other side of the door Pam said she was standing in front of. His mind would have worked quicker if it weren't for Michael and 'the search' of a temp receptionist...among other things. A smile crept up his lips as he quickly opened the door. "Oh my God," he said into the phone. "I have to go. There is this amazingly beautiful woman outside my front door."

Pam smiled broadly when she Jim opened the door. He always made her smile. She hung up and put the phone in her pocket, handed Jim the pizza and said, "Hang up then, and kiss me!" She quickly wrapped her arms around him, trying to be careful not to disturb the pizza, and kissed him, running her hands through his hair. She couldn't get enough of feeling his body, so the kiss lasted a while. When she pulled back, smiling, she looked into his eyes and let her lower lip out a little. "Poor guy. You look really tired. Is Jen home?"

Jim felt like his heart lept once he saw Pam's smiling face, and once again when she kissed him. He held her close to his body as she broke their kiss, not caring about the pizza or the state it was in. "I honestly have no idea where Jen is. She could still be at work for all I know," he joked. He moved them inside the house, closed the door, and took the pizza from her to place it on the table--all without letting go of her. Jim pulled her back to his body and kissed her again.

Pam laughed and shuffled, attached to Jim, to the kitchen table, where he put down the pizza. She was so happy she thought her cheeks might burst. She loved surprising him. She held him tightly when they stopped moving, placing her head against his chest and listening to his heartbeat for a moment before they kissed. Then they kissed, and it was like magic, once again. She didn't want to break it, in fact, she just wanted to stay lip-locked forever. She placed her hand on the back of Jim's neck, feeling the hair beneath her fingers. She opened her eyes in a moment and looked around, and started trying to shuffle them to the cabinet where the dishes were kept, all without breaking the kiss.

Once the kiss finally ended, she stared into Jim's eyes for a long time. She had missed those eyes so much. She looked down after a while, cleared her throat, and said, "I had heard a rumor that there was at least one hungry person here. Is that true? I think it was from a very reliable source."
James "Jim" Halpertprankster_jim on August 12th, 2008 08:24 pm (UTC)
"Is that so?" He asked. "Well, said person has money and can buy food." He laughed. "We should go shopping while your here. How long are you here anyway?"

"You know, this surprise is almost as good as mine," Jim said, smiling, gently rubbing Pam's cheek. "The only way to beat it is if you were to propose to me, but I don't think diamonds are really my thing." He laughed and kissed Pam's forehead.

pamela_beesly on August 12th, 2008 09:03 pm (UTC)
"Well, I was thinking of the pizza first, then maybe some sleep for you, because bags under your eyes are not your thing. And, since I'll be here tomorrow, we can go shopping tomorrow. How does that sound?" She grinned and cupped his cheek.

"I would propose to you a million times, Jim. You just happened to beat me to the punch. Though, I agree, diamonds aren't your thing. At least not the princess-cut ones. I'll have to consult the guys from Queer Eye on that one." She laughed and nuzzled her forehead into Jim's chest. After a few moments of simply enjoying the way that felt, she looked up at him. "So, what do you say we open this pizza? I, for one, am starving. There should be leftovers for Jen, whenever she gets home."
James "Jim" Halpert: grin1prankster_jim on August 14th, 2008 03:39 am (UTC)
Jim chuckled. "I don't need sleep, Pam," he said. "I need for Michael to stop acting like Michael." Jim chuckled again. He couldn't imagine Michael acting un-Michael like. It wasn't possible. "But shopping tomorrow sounds a lot better than shopping right now." He smiled and kissed her forehead.

"Pizza sounds great," he said as he took her small hand in his. "Who said there were doing to be leftovers?" Jim laughed. It felt great to have Pam there right next to him, and to laugh. He didn't normally laugh at work without Pam there. There didn't seem to be anything to laugh about without pranks to pull. Jen just wasn't as good at it as Pam was. It was something he'd have to work on with her later.

Pam smiled and sighed. "Michael's being his old self, eh? What is he doing now? I haven't talked to him at all since he said he was going to transfer me." Pam reached around and rubbed Jim's back as she hugged him.

She smiled. It felt so good to have contact with Jim. All the time that she was in New York she had just felt this huge void, and now, here with Jim, it was filled. She served Jim a slice and got one for herself and sat down. She grabbed his hand. "Try not to let Michael get to you. We'll get through this. Also, I have some ideas in store for Dwight, so I'm going to have to return to Scranton. Though...I have a few that you could use before I come back."
James "Jim" Halpert: prankster_jim on August 18th, 2008 03:00 pm (UTC)
"Michael has me searching for a new receptionist. But I think I'm just going to persuade Jen to do it. He even mentioned something about Jan coming in and doing it," Jim said. "That's not going to go over so well with everyone else in the office, though."

"I may have to somehow coax Michael into believing I need an actual office...away from him. I don't know, maybe I'm just grasping at straws there." He chuckled, then kissed Pam again.
pamela_beesly on August 18th, 2008 04:34 pm (UTC)
"Jan? Seriously?" Pam almost choked on her pizza. "That's not a good idea. There are some pretty valuable televisions around that office. It could be a hazard. Isn't she, like...eight months pregnant? That wouldn't be good at all. Jen would be awesome, and I wouldn't have to worry about the mess that I would come back to, because I know I can count on her. Also, you wouldn't be so bored, and, as an added bonus, you guys can come up with some pretty awesome pranks. The desk full of rubber band balls was a classic." Pam laughed.

Pam kissed Jim and smiled. "You deserve your own office. At least for the time being, especially if he's going to have you being his personal assistant. Maybe you can convince him that it's a morale booster to have you sit in his office until I get back, and have him sit at your desk. He might just fall for it."
