Living with Robin meant he was at his flat, and the shop, less often than he might have been had he continued to live above it, but Prometheus was still making an effort to keep the business going as best he could. It was important, he'd realized, to maintain stability in his life. It kept him calm, and it kept him sane. It was just one more tether to keep him grounded, that's how he always pictured it. Like he was some massive hot air balloon, and the things he cared about were the ropes that stopped him from blowing away.

He'd missed two days, having gotten caught up in a sculpture he'd been working on, and so he was more than a bit shocked to find some new stock waiting when he unlocked the doors. ...Or, rather, not stock, but- Birds. Parakeets, parrots, doves, rooks, all in beautiful cages, all staring at him, watching.

Two rooks shared a single cage, one black as pitch, the other a very rare albino, all white. Both beautiful- So long as they stayed well away.

"Epimetheus," he sighed, though what he wasn't sure of was if this was some sort of threat, or a peace offering. His brother was thoughtless enough to think some pretty birds might make a good gift, but surely sharp enough to know they'd be a terrifying surprise for the other titan. ...Really, it could have been either. However, surely if they'd been meant as a threat he wouldn't have bothered with cages. ...Right?

The cat that somehow came and went as it liked appeared out of nowhere, purring and wrapping itself around the titan's legs, prompting him to scoop it up and hold it to his chest like some sort of shield. 

"If I didn't think they'd peck my eyes out, cat, I'd open all the cages and let you feast," he murmured. "I'd rather not risk it though. Let's just get you something from the fridge instead, hmm? We'll worry about the winged beasts later."

"A pet bird? I wouldn't wish that on my enemies."

Robin gave the cat a suspicious look, then looked back up to Prometheus. "Just let them loose. Fly free and all that."

"Sure, let's go with that," Robin said with a smirk.

But then he sighed and said, "I got another call from the contractor at the club. They're trying to dick me over on the previous quote for fixing the damage. Fucking fairies. You got a cigarette?"

He'd managed to mostly keep his head down during the mess of solstice, but then discovered that some unseelie jackasses had let the mess spill into his club. Or they did it on purpose, it wasn't like he had a lot of fans over there.

"Holes in the walls, scorch marks on the floor, support beam down... at least they didn't fuck up any of the art. Lighter?" Robin shook out a cigarette and then held out his other hand.

"Hercules," Robin repeated skeptically. "Well, I suppose if you want to tell him exactly what to do. And I mean exactly." He wasn't exactly the brightest bulb.

"Kinky," Robin said with a smirk. Then shrugged and said, "Sure, I'll cancel the contractor. I do like the idea of you ordering him around."

"If I recall, you told me that the last time you saw him you spoke of me incessantly and he thought my name was Robert," Robin said with a roll of his eyes.

"Good thing he's so pretty because he's dumber than a box of bricks," Robin said cheerfully.

Then - "Well. If I'm firing the contractor and don't need to supervise him then I guess my day has suddenly freed up."

"The country? You mean like where there's no wifi or Starbucks?" Robin teased, blinking like he didn't understand. "But what do we do when we get there?"

"How very romantic," said Robin. "Do you think we'll be attacked by fairies or stalked by your brother or bothered by gods?"

"Sure," said Robin, and smirked. "Maybe we should just go to a casino. Or, you know, fucking on a blanket under the stars while we wait to see if some hell rains down on us is also an option."

Robin laughed. "Okay, fine, no casinos." He moved closer to him, bringing their bodies flush together. "So where do you want to go, beautiful?"

Robin wet his lips. "Okay, yes. Middle of nowhere it is. Also it is not fucking fair that I start to get hard just from you whispering in my damned ear."

"Kent," Robin said. "Yes, that qualifies as middle of nowhere. Let's go. It's a nice day, we'll keep the top down. You want to wear one of those scarves like Audrey Hepburn?"
