Sarah Jane Smith has not had a proper date in ages. After the Doctor it never felt quite right. She was waiting for him and it felt almost…disloyal. Now though she had forced herself to remember that it wasn’t any of his business. She wasn’t his and he wasn’t hers and so what she and Harry had started…Whatever she and Harry had started was perfectly fine. She deserved this after all, didn’t she? She deserved to be happy and have a chance of romance and love outside of the Doctor…A sort of love where she was loved back.

Dinner was started in the early afternoon and completed on time (something Sarah was grateful for since despite being able to cook didn’t mean there was no effort involved in it) and she had changed into something simple, but elegant enough and done something with her hair.

She’s managed to close off the kitchen for them (or at least she hopes she has) and has set the table. It’s an intimate, casual setting while still managing to be chic. Sarah Jane’s proud of it at any rate. Now the only thing to do is busy herself until Harry arrives.

The closet hated him. Harry spent much longer than normal dressing for his dinner date with Sarah. He knew she'd look lovely in whatever she wore. He, on the other hand, was a man with few choices available to him. But the closet refused to give him anything he thought was suitable.

After a battle of wills that lasted nearly an hour, Harry finally dressed in his hard-won prizes. A chocolate brown suit cut more narrowly than he'd like (he didn't like the color either but it was better than the other choices he'd been presented) and a pale yellow shirt. The vest was cut well enough that he could leave off the jacket when he got there if Sarah was dressed casually enough.

As if to make up for how stubborn it had been, the closet offered him a spray of flowers to take for Sarah. That would have to do.

Harry went to the kitchen, hoping that he'd guessed where she meant to meet him correctly and that his sartorial battle hadn't made him too late.

"Sarah, are you here?" he called from just outside the doorway.

Sarah had busied herself with the final touches to the meal and prided herself when she only started a bit at Harry's voice.

"I'm here, Harry." She answered back, and she gave a small yelp as she managed to touch the side of one of the still-hot pans. He hand drew back quickly enough though, so the pain dulled after a moment. "Come in then, you're as prompt as ever."

He enters the kitchen, pausing to admire how it's set up. Then studying Sarah herself. "You look marvellous. That's no surprise."

She smiles to him, attempting not to look too proud and approaches him, carefully. "Thank you, Harry. You look absolutely wonderful yourself."

He hugs her and kisses her forehead. "You're really quite a good hand at most anything you want to do."

She smiles, tipping her forehead into his touch and wrapping her arms around him. "I suppose I'm just very lucky for that."

"It takes brains." He smiles and cuddles her a moment.

"I'm fortunate enough to have brains." She grins and cuddles him back. "A miracle in this day and age it seems."

"I'm lucky then. Is there anything I can help with now?"

"I think I've got everything, actually." Sarah promises, moving from his arms. "Sit down."

"Yes ma'am. " He chuckles and picks a spot. "It smells good. What did you make?"

"Ooh, I love a man who can take orders." She teases. "Pork tenderloin, black beans and white rice. Let's see if it tastes as good as it smells."

"Years and years of... conditioning," is his defense. "That sounds wonderful. I doubt it will taste bad at all."

"Military men." She muses with a laugh. "Fingers crossed." Sarah smiles, moving to the table herself with two plates and setting one before Harry and one at her place across from him.

"People use that certain tone, and it just kicks in." Then he chuckles, embarrassed at himself.

He looks down at the plates and then across at Sarah. "It all looks good so far."

She laughs and moves to seat herself, carefully after depositing a glass of red wine by each of their places.

"Thank you, Harry. It smells lovely, I will give myself that."

"Don't fret, Sarah. I'll eat it anyway." He winks.

"Oh, I know you would." She laughs. "But I wouldn't let you. If it's inedible, I'm throwing it out and we'll just order in or something."

"Stop fussing. Do you want me to test it for poison or something first?"

"I'll do it." And she takes up her knife and fork to cut a piece of meat and she raises it to her lips. After a moment she nods and laughs. "Edible."

"I'm sure it's better than that." He picks up his knife and fork and cuts off a piece himself. "Hmm... very good."

"I do." He shakes his head and laughs. "Why are you so nervous? I told you I can only do beans and toast."

"I'm not nervous!" She objects. "...It's just my first date in ages." She laughs. "That's embarassing to admit."

"I doubt that is because you weren't asked, or do you turn down all men who don't let you ask first?"
