He didn't like how familiar this was, the steady tap of his cane, the weight of sunglasses on his face. He hated how easily his body remembered it all. ...Though this time it was, at least, a little different. It was as if his magic had been prepared for this long before he had. As if it had known what would happen.

As he walked down the street, making his way to the cafe he still preferred to visit when he was writing, his magic offered him a shimmering image of the world around him. Less a vision, more a painting. Some details ignored to simplify the image, others done in almost photo realistic detail. So while he couldn't see the face of the woman who passed him on the left, his magic did show him a newspaper stand nearby. Specifically a tabloid with a headline speculating on his sudden vision loss being tied to drug abuse.

Usually that would have annoyed him, but today he found he didn't care. He'd take being blind over being hunted any day, and the press could think whatever they liked. 

When he reached the cafe he instinctively reached for the door, only to have someone open if for him.

"Oh, thank you," he said, trying to make his magic focus on the face of the person in question.

The person in question had noticed Fin maybe a block back and come this far because she had to make sense of what she was seeing.

Sunny had first met Fin just after he'd gone blind, alone and overwhelmed on that curb while Stanley was taking care of something. She supposed now she should feel dirty that she'd taken that man's money, but she still didn't. She'd probably do it again. Leave him for dead somewhere right after, sure, but.

Her voice cracked unexpectedly when she asked, "What the hell happened?"

That gave Sunny a sinking feeling in the pit of her stomach and she felt tears when she most assuredly didn't want them. "Oh God."

In spite of a lot of things, Sunny was a bit of a crybaby if you made it past the first layer of armor. Her mother had scolded her about it often when she was little, and she'd learned to be less emotional for it. But that usually just meant she got mad instead of crying.

She kept herself from helping Fin unless he asked for it, which for the moment he wasn't. Instead she watched him to make sure he was all right before sitting down herself, the chair scraping more harshly across the floor than was necessary.

Sunny asked for mocha. She needed chocolate.

Wasn't that just the way of the world, making your descendants pay for your decisions down the line. Ozo had done it to her, too, if differently.

She wiped her eyes, but they refused to stay dry. "Well, then." It was all she could think to say. She knew enough to be aware that peace between fae courts was a delicate balancing act, but she wanted to get up and hit something all the same. If the price of avoiding a war was one man's eyes, it was, objectively, a small enough price to show that Fin's grandfather had been a very persuasive person.

Subjectively, she couldn't exactly be happy about this.

"Oga Abok is blind," Sunny mumbled, her gaze on a random point on the table. "And she's terrifying. I can only imagine they swallowed that story out of some prejudice for physical perfection, because it doesn't have much to do with being weak."

"No," she agreed, fidgeting in her seat as she tried to contain herself. It wasn't working, though, as trying to keep herself from crying was only making her cry more, her shoulders shaking with muffled sobs.

"Oh, so you still know what a blotchy mess my face is? Great." Sunny hesitated a moment, feeling wrong about being the one to receive comfort in this scenario... but she moved her hand to his and squeezed. "It's not fair."

"But of course," Willy replied, holding the door with one hand and resting the other on Fin's back. "I hoped to find you here. Are you open to my company today?"

It was a genuine question. He was trying so very hard to honour Fin's request for space. He was still a bit limp but he wasn't nearly so pale or ashy and his hair was, at least, clean. Today pulled back in an elastic where it puffed out uncontrolled at the ends. His clothes were black, though today he sported a shirt advertising a band he had seen play forty years ago.

"I am," he confirmed with a nod. "How are you? Your magic is stronger, I can tell. It touches me gently."

"It is. Still wild, though," he replied. He scanned the room and found a table, leading Fin to it.

"What are your plans for the future now that you cannot see once again?" he asked, pulling out Fin's chair for him.

"You are very talented, Fin. Perhaps something else will happen. However, with Stanley gone you will have to find another agent..." he said. There was a note to his voice that he was neither surprised nor disturbed that the man was gone.

"It would be exceptionally satisfying if I did," he replied honestly. "And if he turns up I may take matters into my own hands yet. But so far as I knew he has simply fled from his crimes."

"I would say there are likely many," Willy replied. "Which is why I do not feel bad in the least about my thoughts of vengeance."
