The last person Danny expects to spot walking away from Mindy's door is Luke-Aren't-I-Amazing-With-Balls-Garroway. Instinct makes him pause around the corner of the corridor until he has disappeared in the opposite direction, then he peeks round the wall, brows furrowing.

He hadn't looked like he'd just come out of a hot 'n steamy make-out session but then why would he have been there? Danny has remained friends with exactly zero of his exes on account of them being his exes, so it is with a hint of trepidation that he crooks a finger and knocks on Mindy's door. He hasn't called or texted because he doesn't think he needs to but maybe he ought to have.

"Min?" His voice is smaller than he intends it to be, so he clears his throat. "Min?"

So the whole ordeal is super weird but Mindy genuinely feels better for it, like she's offered Luke some real advice and maybe he can find happiness with it. Happiness she will totally take credit for, should the thing with Spencer work out for him.

Spencer, the tall FBI guy from her party. Guy. Mindy tries her best not to make assumptions about people, but after several months of doing the guy, she'd been pretty sure Luke was straight.

And yeah, maybe she's feeling a little insecure after finding out, but she's fine. Love is love. And Danny's at her door, which is good news on her part. "Hey, babe," she greets, smile tired but sincere. All this talking about true love with Luke makes Mindy even more glad Danny's here.

"Just me catching up on my DVR," Mindy answers, grabbing his hand and gently tugging him inside. He seems kind of weird but weird is also basically Danny's default. It's nothing, she's sure, a few kisses won't soon solve. But first. "So get this," she starts, closing the door behind them. "Luke texted me earlier and was, like, 'Can I come by?'"

"Obviously," Mindy says, oblivious as hell as she leads Danny to the couch. She's too caught up in telling him all about one of the weirder conversations of her life. "He was just here for... I don't know, maybe an hour," she guesses, deciding against mentioning the embarrassment of thinking Luke had been in love with her. "But guess why he came, Danny?"

"Wait, what?" Mindy's following him immediately, starting to panic as she tries to figure out what she's said wrong. This isn't just any relationship, some fling. Danny means something to her and she's not just letting him go. "What are you talking about?" She backtracks mentally over what she's said, then clasps her hand over her mouth. "Oh, no. No. Luke just came by for advice. I was trying to say, what I meant... he's not into me at all. I'm not into him. I'm into you and he's into this new guy."

"My strength?" Mindy echoes, more confused than alarmed now, because she's never once been commended on her strength. Physical, emotional or otherwise. God, and she thought her conversation with Luke was weird. This is blowing that out of the water, but Danny's here and he's still touching her and that counts for something. For everything.

It occurs to her that Danny is maybe concerned about her fidelity, but she's given him no reason — save for ridiculous misunderstandings — to think so, so she doesn't defend herself further. There's no need. Instead, she hums contentedly at his kiss on her cheek before realising that he's misheard her. Again. "Guy. Danny, it's a guy. That's why I was telling you. I wouldn't care if he was interested in banging some rando girl."

Okay, maybe a little bit.

"We are talking about Luke Garroway," Mindy says. God, if this is the way things keep going she might finish this story before the decade is up.

But it is kind of a relief that Danny's as surprised as she was, that she's not just now being brought into the loop after everyone's known this forever. Not that either she or Danny are the most observant. She finds her way back to the couch and wonders if it's an appropriate time to drink, patting the bare space beside her. "That's what I'm telling you. He came by to talk to me about this guy. Male. Penis."

"...okay," Mindy starts and just stares at Danny for a long moment, having so many questions about his newfound enlightenment that she mentally banks for later. "My mistake. But the guy is definitely a guy. I met him."

"I don't think Luke even knows what Punk'd is," Mindy says, shaking her head and settling against Danny's side with a thoughtful expression. Luke had seemed genuinely mortified by the whole situation, either he's a superb actor and needs to win whatever Darrow's version of the Oscar is, or he really felt strongly about Spencer. "He seemed pretty serious. Which, I mean, whatever, right? Love is love and all that."

But Mindy's also super insecure and it's not the first time she's dated a guy that's ended their relationship before moving onto someone of the same sex, so she can't help but wonder if there's a pattern. Or maybe if she's turning them. She had been the one to initiate the whole thing, after all. She glances across at Danny. He, she's positive, is super straight. They might not have had sex yet, but it's painfully clear. Painful for him, at least. "He asked me for advice."

"Oh my god, you're not the guy, you narcissist," Mindy says, pulling back a little so she can shove him lightly. They're officially meant for each other, though she won't say so aloud right now, both at one point apparently having assumed they're the center of Luke Garroway's world. "He's into that guy he brought to my party. You remember him? Super tall?"

"Oh yeah?" Mindy brightens up immediately, always waiting for the attention to turn back to her. Especially when Danny comes by, now, when she doesn't really want to spend the entire time talking about guy/s who are officially not in love with her. "The movie?"

"Ugh," Mindy says, knowing there's no point in hiding her disgust for his Airport Dad novels. Thank god Betsy had gotten him to read The Hunger Games, or they'd have basically nothing to talk about — save for the dozen reality shows he suffers through for her.

"Forget your dumb book." She tilts her head and closes the small space between them with a proper kiss.

Oh, yeah, Danny is super into her, and Mindy assures him that Luke is long forgotten with a kiss that's sure to take both their breath away.

Pulling back just for a moment, she settles her hands on his shoulders and wonders why the hell they haven't just done it yet. Sure, there's prolonging the magic of it all, or whatever, but he's so ridiculously hot she should be tearing his clothes off all over the place by now, professionalism be damned.

It's going to be incredibly weird to look back on this moment, she's sure, and the events that led to this. Right now, though, her thumb skimming along his (absolutely perfect) jaw, it's so hard to care. Not when he's kissing her like this, over and over again.

Patience is not a virtue Mindy possesses. She's fairly certain that the only reason she's managed the past three or so weeks without actually dying is because of the years of practice she has in not jumping Danny's bones.

His hand on her thigh basically means all bets are off, her own fingers lifting to stroke at the short hairs on the nape of his neck. "Bedroom?" she practically begs.
