From JMcginty [@] Freenet :

I'm not sure why, but I ended up picking up some watercolor paper. Maybe it's the weather? There's a nice view down the street and the trees are just leafing out.

There's a place near me that does pretty nice little collections of things to nibble on or some butter, ham, and bread, and you could join me?

Work's been fine, but ... it can wait, I guess, till you're there. If you can come?

James

James-

Watercolors and you? Along with a cafe? How can I say no to that? I need to get out of this apartment as it is, I think I may be hallucinating on the fumes from the rather different painting they've been doing in the halls.

Anything I should bring?

It, and the syrups, can definitely come along. I mean, worth having something impressive to share with the scary coworker, right? Sounds like some of the stuff that goes on at the OTHER cafe, the one where Bahorel supposedly bounces but who knows what he's really doing there?

My guess is illegal fightclub but...

I'll see who I can talk into it. :)

I KNOW it, but I don't go in there. Even I've got standards, horrifying as that is to admit.

I don't PLAN on going anywhere if I can help it, trust me.

Sure thing!

That IS the kind of thing he'd snicker at, sure. At the moment, R's admittedly a little annoyed. Guess who got approached and asked to help out on a job? Technically, it's not like people are forbidden from requesting help or anything, though the mentor and council really don't like it if you have personal involvement with the target involved, but he's still a little stunned someone wanted HIM to head along.

He's making it over to James's place a little bit after the time he'd thought, anyway, but he'd also had to try to get the blood off. He's glad his coat won't really show anything anyway, and hopefully the worst of it's gone, so...he's heading over, glad he'd grabbed everything else into a bag before he'd gotten approached. And that he had a place to hide it too.

James is used to seeing him a little bit bloody by now, right?

It's occurring to R that he COULD have come in through the window, all flashy like. Then again, that'd probably give too much away, wouldn't it? He's not been great at the being subtle bits when it comes to being an assassin. There's one of the rules he's breaking right there. But, like it's been pointed out before, if a target's noticing you, you probably have to kill them as it is, or at least scare them half to death so...

Yeah. It's not the kind of thing you want to do to people you care about, anyway.

"Hey." He offers a little bit of a smile. "Sorry, I kind of wound up running into a little trouble on the way over. Nothing major though. I mostly wound up keeping an eye on a friend in a fight." Close enough to the truth there.

"It's good to see you." He adds, smiling. "Good to see people are still normal."

That works for R. He's learned the angles fairly well for working with glasses. The funny part is when they manage to bump each other, accidentally. Which never ends up working out well for awkward teenagers as it is. But for now, things work out pretty okay, and he grins at the comment.

"I think that might count. Mine are getting there, apparently. And I THINK some of it might be Arno's, but I'm pretty sure it was the other guy. He was walking on the way back to get patched up, anyway."

"That'd be fantastic." R answers the second question, and needs to think a little more about parts of that first one. There are a lot of things that he should probably say, but finding one is...kind of difficult for the moment. "And no, Arno's...we're not exactly from the same walks of life. I mean occasionally, if we do a job, we do something after..."

Something involving drinking, and maybe it's the fact that Arno's primary vice is wine, and R's is definitely stronger, but he does seem to be courting some kind of death by drink by 40, at the oldest, 30, more likely, not that R can really comment on people and their drinking habits but he's seen the bottles on the tables. Something is up and he can only imagine it comes from the job.

"One of these days, we'll probably run into him." He hopes it's not one of those times Arno decides it's hilarious to jump onto people he knows from the rooftop. He'd probably react, and murdering your friend in front of someone you care about isn't the best option at all. Even if he courts it.

"One of these days, I'll be stupid enough to answer questions." He mutters, lastly.

That's pretty nice in and of itself, especially after backing up your partner of sorts while he shoots someone with a miniature crossbow and gets three other guys to kill each other via drugged darts, so R leans into it a little bit.

"It's...someday, anyway." He smiles. "You're safe though, definitely. Safer than you used to be with me, in fact."

"Think I did too." Grantaire muses, thinking about it. There was the thing with Enjolras, which he realized soon enough wasn't going to happen pretty much immediately after Bellec had confirmed he wasn't crazy when he noticed stuff on the jail walls, and while that had been obsessive in a lot of ways...it's not the same. He does know that.

"Careerwise it's...I've gotten to a point it's stable now. I don't think anyone's going to be in danger with me around now. So that's something, huh? It might be safe."
