Afternoon at the SGH Cafeteria  
Izzie smiles to herself and take another sip of her tea. It's pouring outside, but somehow she feels like the sun is shining down on her. She sits alone for now, enjoying the solitude. The other day with Finn was unexpected but somehow refreshing. They talked for hours afterwards and he convinced her to reconsider her internship at Seattle Grace.

Izzie had just finished a two hour meeting with the Chief and Dr. Bailey and was granted permission to continue her internship. Even though she is now under strict probation and being watched like a hawk by Bailey, she doesn't mind so much. She tugs her lab coat around her tighter and it's as if she's starting to become whole again.

She hasn't told her friends yet and she grins to herself again, imagining their faces when they see her sitting casually in the caf in her scrubs and lab coat.

(ooc: I needed to get back in the game and fast forward through some stuff...bare with me here. And someone join Izzie for a little chat.)

He hadn't been aware that they were standing so close until she tilts her head and it lands on his shoulder. She's giggling now which makes him groan inwardly because he loves it when she's laughing. Laughing is good.

He turns around, placing one hand on either side of her but so his palms are flat against the wall. He's trying not to laugh too. "I'm never taking you anywhere again."

Izzie can't stop giggling at his expression. She can tell he's trying hard not to laugh but she can see the sides of his mouth twitching upwards.

"Oh, you missed me. Admit it!" she laughs again and her hair falls into her eyes blocking whatever look he may give her.

Her hair falls into her eyes and he opens his mouth to say something when she reaches up and swipes her bangs back, lifting her head to look at him. Right in that moment, none of the last three months has happened. Denny didn't die, Alex wasn't an ass, Izzie isn’t broken. It was like before, before when things had been easy.

He is staring at her now. Both their breathing slightly louder then normal breathing should be as he starts to lean forward.

But then Denny had died. Alex had been an ass and Izzie was still broken. So he stops. He drops his hands from where they were trapping her against the wall and takes a step back. "Ah, we should…I should deliver those results."

Izzie looks up and see's his face leaning closer towards her. She freezes. Her heart speeds up and she feels like she can't breathe. It feels like an eternity before Alex breaks eye contact, drops his hands and steps away. She feels flushed and claustrophobic and she can barely make out what Alex is saying to her.

Slowly, the blood rushing past her ears isn't so deafening and she lets out a breath she didn't realize she was holding.

"Yeah, uh... I should go too." She moves away from the wall and heads in the direction of the locker room. "I have errands to run and stuff. So, yeah!"

An intern from a different service runs past them, taking the stairs three at a time. Izzie takes another step away from Alex and gives him a warm smile, trying to break the awkward silence that follows.

"Well, I'll see you tomorrow, then."

"Yeah. Yeah." He nodds back at her. "Tomorrow." She smiles back and turns to leave. "And Iz- I'm here. Tomorrow I mean. And the next day..." He swings his hands together in front of him as he tries to clarify. "I'm just. Here- If you need me." He adds just to make it sound a little less non Alex.

He grins then too and starts to head back up the flight of stairs they just came from, stopping two flights up to jump and slap the top of the stair well with one palm. "Izzie's back."

Izzie watches him go back up the stairs and smiles to herself. He's definitely different; nicer and less obnoxious. It suits him, but also makes her feel off balance, like she doesn't know what to expect anymore.

She exits the stairwell and spots Bailey heading towards her. Izzie doens't want to know how she managed to get down so quickly, but she doesn't have time to care. She slips into the locker room and quickly changes into her regular clothes. She hangs her stethascope back up in her locker, folds her lab coat and scrubs and shuts the door. She grabs her purse and finally heads out the door.

Bailey is outside giving her a sideways look and Izzie just smiles warmly. "See you tomorrow, Dr. Bailey."

It's still pouring outside when she reaches the lobby and she fumbles with her umbrella for a few seconds. She checks her phone quickly for the time and sees a new message from Finn. She closes her phone before listening to the message, and heads out into the cold rain.
