It felt like ages since Adrian seen Susie, and a lot of things had happened in both of their lives. He guessed things were a bit complicated, since they hadn't started out as completely friends, and now, when both of them had partners of their own, it sorta felt odd hanging out like they had when they both were single. Boundaries were made to keep, or at least try to keep? Adrian was sure that Jenna didn't know about his and Susie's past though, so he didn't have to worry. They both knew they had a life before each other, even if Adrian probably wouldn't really love it if Jenna decided to go meet with some old fling, no matter how over the affair was. But then again, maybe he was a bit more possessive then his red headed wife to be.
After the fight he had with Christian, Adrian had realized that he slowly were running out of friends outside of his business. And there really couldn't be any friends in the business he was in. That's why he had finally decided to go visit Susie at her job, as soon as he had a lunch break to spare. He wasn't sure he could lure her from her office to grab a bite to eat, but here's to hoping.
He walked through the reception of Telepol, stopping at the front desk to ask if Susie was in. He was showed to the room where she was sitting, and after thanking the girl who had showed him, Adrian gave the door a soft knock and peaked inside. "Hey, Sus?" he smiled when he saw her sitting on the side, surrounded by all those computer screens.
Adrian liked Susie, it was a shame that they lived such busy life, causing them to not be able to meet as often as he would like, but c'est la vie. There wasn't much he could do about it either. Maybe they could try and go out on a double date somewhere, that would be nice. It would also mean that Adrian caught to birds with one stone, he got to socialize with his friend while taking care of his girlfriend. Something told him that Jenna would like Susie as well, he did have a thing for strong, independent women after all. And those usually liked each other as well.
As he caught Susie's attention, he let out a laugh at her comment. He had really wanted her to work on his team, he would have love to have her on, and she would have done great things for Web Impact Co. but, apparently she was dead set on staying at Telepol until her last days so... He had sorta given up on that idea. The door was always open if she changed her mind though. "Ahh, no..." he laughed. "Unless it's working, of course," he winked and stepped inside her office, letting his eyes quickly move around the place to get an idea about how it looked.
"It sure has," he smiled at her. "Far too long. Thought I would check up on you. How's things?"
"Ah, damn it," he chuckled as she informed him that she was still happy at Telepool. He had forgotten how bossy she could come across, but he didn't complain. In bed, that trait had been amazing. He was sure she gave Rusty a run for his money though. "One day, Susie, I'll get you one day," he teased, knowing it would probably serve him a swat across the head if he didn't stop at that.
He nodded obediently as she told him to close the door and he reached back to push the door close. "Ah, working, eating, fucking your boyfriend, family member's birthdays..." he repeated, clearly not able to stop the teasing now that he had started. "Got it," he winked at her and watched as she got up from her seat. Without really giving it much thought, he walked over to give her a friendly hug. He knew Susie probably wasn't much for hugs, but he felt it was necessary since it had been such a long time.
"Yeah," he then said as he was asked about his own love life. He pulled back and pushed his hands down the front pockets of his jeans. "Now that you brought that up... That's actually why I'm here," he laughed, not sure if he wanted to tell her these news right away, but he didn't really find a reason not to. "We're getting married. You and Rusty are invited to the wedding of course, 29th of July, you free then?" he asked, really hoping she was. Wouldn't be a party without Susie there.
"Emilia will get here then, maybe a week before. I think she would like that."
"Double your salary?" Adrian laughed and shook his head. "I would go bankrupt!" He was pretty certain that Susie already had a rather hefty pack check her at Telepol, they clearly wanted to keep her so making sure she was happy with the money she made was probably in their best interest.
When Susie didn't really give him the "Oh my god, I'm so happy for you!"-reaction that everyone else seemed to give him, he couldn't help but to let out a laugh. At least she was being honest, Adrian always appreciated honesty with situations like this. "Yeah... We kinda moved a bit fast..." He didn't want to go into the whole thing about Vegas. He really didn't need to have that spread around, since he and Jenna were only doing this to save his reputation. "I just... Really think I've found the woman I want to spend my life with," he shrugged, hoping Susie wouldn't call his bluff. He had just admitted to love Jenna, but there wasn't a inch of him that was 100% certain he wanted to be with Jenna all of his life. A good businessman were never 100% certain about anything. "I wouldn't mind you meeting her before then, maybe we can do a double date of some kind?" he suggested.
When Susie asked if they were trying to get some bonding going between Jenna and Emilia, he grinned. Jenna barley wanted to touch Emilia with a ten foot pole, so chances were she was going to become that sort of step mom that sorta kept in the background. It wasn't ideal, but considering Emilia lived most of her life in Sweden with her real mother, it wasn't so bad. "Not sure Jenna would want to do anything like that," he hummed. "... But Sofia, my ex, might come here for the wedding too... I'll see if she's interested in tagging along?" That would be a whole other kind of shit show, but Adrian was sorta ready for it.
"Yeah, well, we're not eloping, I promise you," Adrian teased, the wedding between him and Jenna would actually be a pretty big deal. It was mainly about Adrian showing off his wealth, he had to keep up appearances after all, if not there would've been no reason for him to get married at all. It's not really like either he or Jenna found it that necessary otherwise. "Of course she is," he shrugged, all though he wasn't sure at all. "But maybe, just to be sure, let's not tell her about our... Uhm... Weekend in Vegas?" he grinned, how could he not when he thought about that night they spent together in that hotel room? Jenna didn't need to know it, she would forbid him to go to Vegas for the rest of his life.
"Oh, yes! Maybe you two can come over to my place and we can cook for you?" By we, Adrian meant him. Jenna didn't really do much cooking than heating up some chicken nuggets in the microwave. It wasn't like he wanted to be with her for her cooking skills anyway, so Adrian didn't mind. He was sure he could bribe her into cutting a carrot or something. "Just email me whatever dates you're free and we'll set something up?" he suggested. Jenna had to deal with him wanting to introduce her to his friends, he had to meet that angry Spanish girl she lived with and she almost cut his head off... So, she owed him this.
