Gently he shook her foot. "Hey babe, I gotta head into the studio. Stay here until I get back, okay?"
Aislara mumbled something sleepily, causing Benito to chuckle before leaning down to kiss the top of her head. "See you soon," he promised.
"All right, crew! Let's get to work!" the director called out sharply. "Time is money!"
"Is it okay that I dropped by?" he asked.
Aislara smiled hesitantly. "Sure," she told him. "It's just been a long day!"
"Hey, are you sure you want to hang out?" Benito asked worriedly. "I can always boogey home," he promised, catching a weird vibe from his girl.
"No, no! I'm fine!" Aislara swore quickly. "I want to hang out!"
Aislara nibbled her lip. "Umm... can you give me a second?" she asked softly. "I'm just gonna..." she motioned upstairs. "I'll be right back down," she added hurriedly.
"Yeah sure, babe. I'll see you in a little bit, 'k?" he grabbed the remote and started flipping through the channels as Aislara raced upstairs.
"No!" she called out in a panicked tone. "I'm just... I'll see you tomorrow!"
Benito headed towards the door, feeling a little silly for coming over. "Sure thing," he called up. "Guess I'll see you later!"
Maybe she wasn't as in to him as he was into her, he worried. Although he seemed so confident and brash, underneath, he was still hurting from the games Margaret had played. Maybe it was time to look elsewhere for love, he wondered with a pang. He didn't want to get hurt again...

AN: Oh my gosh! What a completely unproductive day! I think Benito & Aislara were both exhausted from staying up way too late the night before! At least Benito got a nice, long nap in. But, they didn't hang out with each other at Aislara's place. I thought it was hilarious that they watched different tvs. Get it together, guys!
I also loved that she stayed at his place until about 2 pm, when she headed off to work. Too bad she didn't have the day off! That would've been kind of cool if she'd been there when he got home.
Also laughed to discover that Gabrielle was his co-worker! No wonder she was so snobby at the library! Guess who's going to be Benito's 2nd friend! Maybe Gabrielle & Benito will catch a movie tomorrow!
By the way - Benito actually had a positive mood effect from eating the cinnamon-laced pizza! I was disappointed it didn't make him more amorous with Aislara! :( Boo!!!
