    That was it. After thinking about it enough, Genji decided he was going to tell Angela how he felt about her. There were a lot of things in his mind and he thought that getting one of them out, even if the result might not be pretty, might do him some good. He didn't have too much to fear, Angela wouldn't stop talking to him just because he had a crush on her that she didn't reciprocate, if that was indeed the case, so it was mostly a matter of getting the confirmation he really needed.

    He had asked Angela about when would be a good day for him to drop by at her place so they could just hang out for a while and catch up on what was going on with their lives. Of course, Genji didn't say anything about his real intentions with this meeting, but he did want to take the opportunity to just talk about things with Angela for a while. Romantic interested or not, she was a pleasant person to talk to and it didn't hurt to check up on how she was doing.

    So, Genji was standing in front of her door, wearing a simple gray t-shirt, a pair of jeans and black sneakers. He didn't want to be overdressed for what was meant to be a simple casual meeting, but he did at least put some effort into looking presentable, even if the summer heat made it rather unadvisable to try wearing too much, even if the clothes were over his armor.

    He knocked on her door and patiently waited for Angela to answer, taking a deep breath in preparation.

    It wasn't often Angela got days off, especially as she was really getting back into the swing of things as a doctor in Pandora Town's main hospital. As a woman with her skill sets and equipment, she was often in high demand and even called upon for research within the hospital. Briefings, house calls, presentations, operations - you name it and Angela had probably done it or was scheduled for a few of each in one week. So when she gave someone part of her day off, it meant a lot of things but most importantly, that she cared enough to meet the person and be up and out of her bed before twelve in the afternoon to see them.

    As was the case for Genji's visit.

    She'd been finishing up the chapter in her book, sitting in her small back garden with all the windows open, the radio playing somewhere quietly in the kitchen as she turned the pages. It was quiet, peaceful enough she could faintly hear children on the streets and cars going by even from the back of her home and those noises heard included Genji at her front door. Setting the book down by her empty cup, Angela pushed her reading glasses up from her face to the top of her head, smiling as she dusted her hands off on her denim skirt, her honey gold off the shoulder top catching in the breeze and rippling as she walked.

    "Coming!" She called when she was sure the man would hear it. Unlocking the door Angela smiled when opening it, welcoming her friend inside as she stepped aside to allow for the cyborg to come in. Shutting the door behind him, she gave Genji a brief but warm hug, tugging at his hand to bring him further into her home which she'd finally finished unpacking the contents of not too long ago.
    "Can I get you something to drink? Water? Juice? Soda? Its pretty warm out so I won't make you suffer with me and the tea addict I am." Motioning for just a moment, the woman darted out before returning with her cup, setting the kettle on to boil before turning back to Genji and waiting for his response

    Angela greeted him as she typically did, with a brief embrace that Genji was quick to return before she broke out, and then physically leading him further into the house. It was funny how she was almost always the one who took charge, while the cyborg could only let himself be taken by her. The only time the roles had reversed was back when then finally reunited, when Genji still had his human body and that was probably a good sign of how much of a bad state Angela was in.

    That was all in the past though. Right now they were just going to enjoy some time together as Genji bidded his time before he could openly express his feelings. Of course, he was also nervous, unsure if he was ready for the possibility of being rejected. That same nervous feeling was also leading to him feeling thirsty.

    "Just some water is fine." He told her, before then taking a seat at the couch and beginning to take off his faceplate.

    "One water coming right up." Angela smiled, disappearing off to the kitchen before she returned a few moments later, setting a tall glass of iced water down for Genji. Taking a seat beside him she cradled her own glass of orange juice in her hands, sipping at the contents through the striped straw sticking out the top. Placing it down on one of the coasters she picked up the TV remote, the screen flicking to life in front of them as she figured she'd put something on in the background for some noise whilst they talked among themselves.

    Turning her body towards Genji as she sat beside him, Angela reached a hand out and nudged at the younger's arm gently, happy to see his face from behind the covering he had removed in her brief absence.
    "Are you alright? You seem a little jittery and nervous, Genji. Is something wrong?" The doctor was good at reading people considering her job, even better when it came to friends and family she was rather close with. Wondering if it had something to do with Hanzo or perhaps the younger's work, maybe another run-in with one of their Overwatch colleagues, there was genuinely an endless possibility over who or what had put her friend on edge.

    He always did have a lot more going on than he liked others to know and worry about.

    Offering him one of her most reassuring smiles, Angela gently placed her hand over Genji's forearm in a gesture to show she was there for him.
    "You know you can talk to me about anything, right?" She added on for good measure, already knowing the younger knew very well the kind of friend he had in the doctor and that really, it seemed nothing was going to change that.
