Waiting for Pon farr...

There is a girl at work, whom I really just adore and have grown kind of close to, who has lost her damn mind.

She has fallen head over heel with a boy at work who doesn't feel the same way, which in and of itself is not so unusual. Unrequited love is as common as, well... the common cold. It hits everyone once in a while; we all go through it. In this instance though she just cannot let go of him.

He likes her as a person (I'd be hard-pressed to think of anyone who wouldn't) so he enjoys spending time with her. She and her posse will grab him to go with them at lunch time; they go to the movies and bars and just generally hang out together.

In every way that she is a passionate person, he is a bit more cerebral and maybe a bit too reasonable. Almost Vulcan in his thinking. He told her from the get-go that he simply will not date anyone with whom he works and has stuck to his guns about it. He probably does have feelings for her, but has remained true to his word.

If she can just hold out till he enters Pon farr, she might have a chance then...
