From JMcGinty [@] Freenet:

I'm with R right now. Someone fired a gun twice at the protests. I'm all right, people worried if I'm okay, minor injury, went to a doctor. Just letting you know if anything ends up in the paper.

R was there, watching crowd. Kind of amazing when he walked over. Also met Inspector Javert. So there I was bleeding, and near the third thing on his mind? I better not be being a pirate. He said he knew you. Is he on the bad list?

I'd say it wasn't . . . too bad? I mean - dramatic speeches, tense people, but it didn't feel that bad. Tom was there. He wants to catch up with you, I think about Damian.

Love, J

R grins at this, a little surprised, but definitely pleased to hear that. "I was damned glad you were all right." he answers, quite seriously, as he's shifts a little so that more of his robe can cover James. He's struck with the idea to kind of keep him here like this for as long as he can, so long as everyone's on board with the idea.

"It was...let's just say it was terrifying." And I feel guilty that it was probably my people who tried ruining this and nearly killed you, he doesn't add. He can see where someone would do it though.

"You never have to worry about it being me." R's not sure that's strictly true, but he does know that his skills give him more of a chance than other people to be all right in that kind of situation. He's not sure how he can explain it without the details, but maybe it's worth a try after all.

"I'm...do you know how people can sometimes tell when things are coming? It's sort of like that. Helps with self preservation." he adds, "Not that I mind that you're possessive or anything. It's nice, actually. Not a lot of people..."

Well. Grantaire's not going to finish that because he really doesn't see a need for that. "Cookies and tea are more than acceptable. There are SOME things you can use to figure people out." he adds, grinning a bit. "Not to that detail but...if you pay attention. I've made a study of human behavior lately."

As far as that goes, R has no intention of letting James do that kind of thing if he can help it. Not really anyway. He probably should figure out what to look out for too, but right now, well, Tom can probably pass it on, right?

"It does." R agrees, thinking of Arno and Bellec, and those missions when everything seemed to go wrong all at once and it struck you after how many times you might have really gotten someone killed accidentally. Death was all around them and courting it seemed...pretty awful. all things told.

"I think though...if I tell you something a little crazier, will you hear me out? It may make you feel better about the possibility of me being harmed."

Daisies. R smiles at the thought of those. "Daisies. Good to keep those in mind. And really? I think you have my permission for near anything."

"Crazy as in the reason I can do it." R says, pausing. "And as in what Arno and I actually DO." It's sort of difficult, but he might as well tell James. It's the kind of secret he can't keep any longer. He hates keeping it anyway.

"When I was arrested for those couple days a while back, I met a guy." he says, hesitating just a bit. "He noticed that I could see some things on the walls that others didn't. That I have this sort of...well it's the ability I told you about. I got some training to make it better and I use that to help people. It's what Arno does too, what we do together. Sometimes people get hurt when we try but it's the lesser of a lot of evils. And beyond that..."

R tugs James a little closer, being rather gentle. "It means my instincts and my reflexes are now highly toned. I practice a lot and some of these things...I can tell when things are going to happen, by knowing the patterns most people use, things like that. It makes me less likely to get hurt because I know what I'm doing. I'm glad to have a reason to use that now."

"I was on a job." R nods, not mentioning the burn, the brand now, himself. It only hurt for a while, after all, but wasn't permanent. It's supposed to be a metaphor about life as far as he knows, going back to some Italian Renaissance Assassin or other. "I sometimes get a little scraped up but I do know what I'm doing in a fight. And I have backup, usually."

As far as that goes, R's studying James and slowly nodding. "I think we could work on those if you wanted. It'd probably be good to just secure them but I can show you that method too." He's sliding a hand over and squeezing Jame's as it settles on his leg. "Maybe I can. I'm not too sure about that fact, but..."

"Adorable?" R laughs. "I'm picturing, I dunno, our insignia with a smiley face or something. Happy eagles, maybe?" he quips, imagining that for a moment here and finding it...quite entertaining to say the least.

And then he stops, turning his head a little, to more properly meet that kiss. "I love you too." he says. "And you're the BEST reason, can we go with that? For now at least? I'm still checking with the rest of the world."

"Of course you can stay. Long as you want." R assures him, snuggling James a little closer. "We'll manage. We. I like that part." It's nice, knowing that there's back up, for sure. He can go with it.

"It's - I don't know. A stoic thing? He had a hell of a cold and it took three letters from me to nag him to head down to the clinic. That and the school dealing with a flu outbreak," Tom's saying. He's leaning on the wall half watching them.

"So your speaker lads. Are they going to want me? Or just my old roommate that got shot?" Since well - it's probably good to check. "I think Grantaire would want time to be sure he's okay."
