It wasn't as if Spencer had never been in a violent and dangerous situation before- He had, on multiple occasions, been held at gunpoint and shot at. So it was safe to assume that wasn't what had him feeling so shaken up this evening, though it had been startling to have a gun aimed at him after so long. Gun violence just wasn't as common here, and most of the cases he'd worked on lately hadn't involved gun violence in any way.

No, what had unsettled Spencer today had been how young the attacker had been. Barely even a teenager... And yet somehow armed, and violently angry.

At the last moment the boy had turned the gun on himself, and now after stacks of paperwork, meetings, briefings, and conversations that had seemed unending, Spencer found himself at a small cafe, staring at his cold coffee and trying to make sense of everything that had happened. ...All while questioning why he kept returning to a job that only left him with too many unanswerable questions, and an uncomfortable weight on his chest.

"I'm sorry sir, but are you planning on ordering anything else? I don't mean to rush you, just we're short on tables tonight," a server said, her voice soft and painfully polite as it snapped Spencer out of his thoughts.

(OTA! Catch Spencer leaving the cafe, or join him at his table.)

The reason why the server had asked was standing behind her, looking uneasy with her question. Anael had only asked her whether they had any tables left; he hadn't meant for her to imply anyone ought to be leaving.

"It's all right, really," he tried to tell her again, and shot an apologetic smile at the young man.

"Are you sure? I can just go," Anael told him honestly, shifting to the side so he was not half behind the server anymore. "I don't want you to hurry on my account." He seemed, for all accounts and purposes, incredibly honest.

"I'll have one as well," Anael told her with a soft smile, one naturally filled with genuine warmth. Only as she walked away did he sit down across from the man, and offer him another one of those smiles. "Don't feel obligated to go on my account. I'm Hani," he introduced himself, without offering a hand to shake. He rarely thought to.

"Good or bad?" Anael asked, eyebrows raised slightly. "I suppose neutral might be an option, too," he added with a small smile.

"That's quite all right," Hannibal told the waitress in a mild and polite tone. "If dr. Reid would not mind, I will join him at this table."

He saw the distant gaze on the young doctor's face and had no wish to rush him off in any way.

As he sat down with a polite nod to Spencer, he ordered an espresso for himself. "Dr. Reid, will you have something as well? My treat."

"Would you have rather sat alone?" Hannibal asked kindly. "I would understand. No need to comply to social convention for my sake."

Chris overheard her and smiled indulgently. "I'm so terribly sorry I'm late," he said. "I'll have the roast chicken dinner and a nice pint. And Dr. Reid, for you? You should eat now that I'm here. Well, why don't you think on it while she gets my pint..."

She smiled and walked away, content with Chris's stammering and excuses.

When they were alone he said, "I don't mean to intrude. Do you mind some company? Long enough to keep up the charade, anyway. And I've ordered, after all. I mean, erm, how are you? I haven't seen you in so very long. How is your new job and all that?" he rambled, taking off his messenger bag and taking a seat.

"Quite well, quite well. I've been to Sweden to study the Codex Gigas so I've been there for quite some time. Fascinating book. Written by one monk in toto. Fascinating," he replied. Then because he tended toward blunt to the point of rude he said, "You don't look well. Are you ill?"

"You've said that to me before. I have a feeling you have many long days, Dr. Reid," Chris said. "I should think that your job would be quite taxing on the soul."

Sunny had been getting her coffee to go, thinking that she should probably go study or something productive and it was too crowded to do that here without getting ridiculously distracted. At least that was the plan until she saw the server gently trying to get Spencer to leave.

"Hey!" she came up to the table like this had been the plan all along, like she was supposed to meet him here and was just running late, taking the other chair.

The woman looked awkward for a moment before just nodding and excusing herself.

Sunny smiled, watching her before commenting in a low voice, "She hates me right now."

"Maybe," Sunny allowed, but truth be told, that wasn't what she was interested in. "Anyway, you seemed to be pretty deep in thought. I can drink my coffee in silence if you need me to... unless you care to talk about it?"
