A/N: Double drabble.
“I’m not saying you shouldn’t be your usual charming self, I’m just asking you to dial back the flirting a few notches when we go to Rhi’s for dinner. I don’t want her getting the wrong idea, or worse, Johnny thinking you’re hitting on his wife. Rhi wouldn’t be impressed if the two of you got into a brawl, not to mention how the kids would feel seeing their dad and another man beating each other up.”
Jack nodded. “Okay, I see your point. I can still flirt with you though, right?”
“That’s acceptable, as long as you show a modicum of restraint. Remember, there’ll be two impressionable kids present, so no grabbing my arse, no talk of sex or your prowess in bed, and no regaling everyone with tales of your past conquests.”
“That doesn’t leave much to talk about.” Jack hadn’t been nervous about going to Rhiannon’s for dinner, but now he was envisioning them all sitting around the dinner table wrapped in an awkward silence.
“You can compliment Rhi’s cooking, ask the kids about school, and if they’re doing anything fun over the Christmas holidays, stuff like that.”
“Small talk. Right, I can do that. I hope.”
