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."

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?"

Robin looked slightly uncomfortable, but managed a little smile. "I haven't... had anything like this in a very long time," he said.

That made Robin crack a smile. "Well that's true enough. But if you want to buy me things I'm not going to complain."

Robin turned his head to brush his lips to Prometheus' knuckles.

"I want you," he pointed out in a murmur.

"I do like it when you hold on tight, though," Robin said, heat in his voice. But then he stepped backwards and said, "And with that in mind, if we don't get going we might never, because clothes will start coming off."

"This isn't exactly public," Robin said. "I'm saving it for the great outdoors. I want to feel my bare ass against a tree by the end of the day." He grinned at Prometheus and swung his car keys as they approached, and then he hit the button to put the top down.

"They'll be fine," Robin assured him. "Besides." He shrugged. "Worst case, we come back... and some of them are probably delicacies." He hopped in and cranked the engine, grinned at Prometheus, and started down the street. He couldn't wait until they got out of the city and he could really open the thing up on the road.

"Hmmm." Robin found himself genuinely trying to remember. "In Greece, I assume. We met... before, right?" Before he'd been chained to that rock.

"Life was a party back then," Robin sighed. "Maybe it was an orgy."

They were at a traffic light, so Robin glanced at Prometheus. "I... don't know that I am. I think you like me better now than you did before."

"Come across anything about me?" Robin asked, wondering what it would be like if he'd kept journals of his own.

Robin hummed as they drove out of the city and he tried to remember.

"We've had so many tiffs that they all run together," he admitted after a moment. "Was it because I fucked someone I shouldn't have? Or did I steal something? Or did you try to kill me for no reason?"
