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."

"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?"

Robin smirked. "Here's where I make a joke about all the gods being related to each other," he said.

Though he paused then, and still looking at the road asked, "You haven't been with another puck, have you?"

It was a good thing they were at a stop sign because Robin turned to look at him, surprised.

"Well... maybe now," he said. "But we're talking thousands of years."

"It does seem to be something of a pattern," Robin said. "We always come back together." When Prometheus came back.

Robin was glad he didn't have to respond to that first bit. They both knew well enough that this wouldn't last. That Prometheus would leave him hanging, again.

He hit a button on the dash and a map came up. "Nice to not have to navigate by the stars anymore."

Robin snorted. "Fair enough. How far is it?" They were out of the city now, at least, and the air was cleaner, roads straighter. He revved the engine a bit.

Robin grinned. "What a great idea," he said, "making good time." He glanced at the map, turned at the next stop, and then with a stretch of open road in front of them, picked up speed.

"I'm a very good driver," Robin said as he switched into another gear.

"Tell me a story while we're on the way. Whatever you like. Something from during some time we weren't together."

Robin turned his head and looked at him. "Have you... had children?" It hadn't occurred to him to ask before this.

Robin actually looked a little thrown, even as he looked out at the road. "I - guess I never thought about it." It wasn't like he could have kids, after all. At least not like that. And the actual alternative was something he'd always tried to avoid at all costs.

"Right," said Robin. "Well. I guess I don't have that problem at least." He continued looking out at the road, still clear.
