Q had managed to remain out of the field for a bit now, confined to his lab and Q branch, quite happily. In fact his world, as a whole, had been delightfully calm. He and Bond had spent the holiday abroad, doing things the office didn't need to know about... And he'd returned to London uncharacteristically chipper.

Today he was at a cafe not far from the office, hiding behind his laptop as usual- However, he seemed slightly less closed off than usual. Where he usually blended into the background, or made a point of not engaging with the world, today.... Today, however, he seemed interested, watching people pass by out the window, and even occasionally glancing up to see who was coming and going in the cafe.

In fact, he was so engaged with the world, that he didn't notice his laptop screen flicker strangely before returning to normal.

Since he'd straightened out his medications and the nausea pills were working, Hex had found a renewed interest in eating and running. He'd done his running earlier and had showered and changed and he found he was ravenous for something full of protein and a nice cuppa to go with. He spotted Q in the window and wore a smile as he came in.

"Good to see you, mate," he smiled. "Can I join you?"

"It's really good to see you, too. It's been a while," he said, ducking his chin and rubbing the back of his neck as he thought of that awful night when he'd last seen Q. It had been a turn around, though. A good moment in the end. Still, he was embarrassed.

"How've you been? How was your holiday?"

"Bollocks. No way," he said in amazement, taking hold of Q's hand to see. "You did it? He finally got of his arse and did it?"

"Exactly right," Hex nodded, then let Q's hand go. "Congratulations. I'm really happy for you, mate."

The server came over and Hex ordered a pastrami sandwich on rye and a cup of tea then looked to Q.

"Want anything more?" he asked. "Warm cup at least?"

The server nodded and hurried off to put in the order and set about making fresh tea. Hex smiled at her as she left, then turned that smile on Q.

"I'm so much better than the last time we spoke," he said, just a bit hesitantly. "We had a good holiday, too. Nothing like yours...but nice."

"It's been a bit rough. But it's worth it. Danny's worth it. I'm so glad you found him," he said softly.

Hex was quite adept at reading people and Q's minimal response spoke volumes. He paused at wet his lips as he thought.

"I'm thinking of trying to go back to nursing," he said then. "I like being a medic but the hours are shit."

His face went blank as could be for just a moment, then he tilted his head.

"Actually, no. I hadn't thought of that. UNIT crossed me mind, but Ace would kill me."

Hex nodded enthusiastically, not thinking for a second of what Danny would think of it.

"Bang on!" he said. "Id love to apply for that."

"You're the best, Q. You've done so much for me. Can I do anything for you?" he asked earnestly.

"Of course," Hex replied and pulled it from his pocket to hand it over. He thought nothing of it at all. Q hadn't even asked for it, and yet he handed it over.

"I haven't noticed anyone. No. And if he has he hasn't said anything to me. I'd...I'd like to think he'd tell me..." he said, trailing off. He looked into Q's cup and his expression faltered a moment, giving away the fact that he knew there were things Danny didn't tell him. And he didn't ask.

It took him a moment, but Hex nodded.

"Danny's not well. I mean, of course he's not...but sometimes he goes on benders and he'll say things and I don't know if he means it....if he's serious, or if he's just paranoid. He has good reason to be, but I don't know if it's real," he confessed quietly.
