Q is so engrossed in writing up his report as fast as he can that the sudden noise makes him almost fall from his chair. Looking up, he glares at Bond. “Surely there are nicer ways to indicate your arrival 007, I nearly slapped you.” Q sighs and gives bond a smile then. “Welcome back. Please tell me the gun is still in working condition?”
"It helps when you need a quick disguise, a pair of glasses can make you look like a different person, just putting on a hat can help you instantly disappear in a crowd"
Picking up the wine bottle Bond refills their glasses
"Or a good crime novel, do you read?"
"Thats true. The only dilemma I’d face is being pretty much sightless. I have a feeling I wouldn’t get very far."
Q put them back on and took a sip of his wine. “I should really try to read more actually. I rarely get time to do so what with work and family. I prefer movies if I’m honest. Although I do love a good murder mystery”
"Have you tried contacts? Knowing you, you would find a way for them to shoot lasers or something" Bond grinned
"The books are always better than the movies you know"
Q laughed. “Actually I don’t much like putting things in my eyes, although contacts that allow you to access the internet are in development so maybe I’ll learn to live with it.” Q ran a hand through his hair. “I’ve always been told that. My sister practically rants at me for it. Perhaps I will try to make time for myself to read.” He considered
"Contacts with internet connection? I’m not sure if that’s crazy or brilliant" Bond grinned shaking his head
"You have family"he said a little surprised "I take it they don’t know what you do?"
