Anael was beginning to think that God did not want him to connect with Robin again, at this stage. Each time he had tried to stop by and see the puck, since his last run-in with Prometheus, he had not found him at home. He wondered whether this time would be the right one even as he landed on his rooftop terrace, appearing at the same time as he shed the wings, walking over to the French windows to peer inside and see if Robin was in, knocking on the glass as he did so. He hadn't bothered pretending to wear warm clothes, and was in a simple pair of jeans and a t-shirt, despite the cold.

And Robin, this time, was fully clothed.

Rising from the couch, he walked over and opened the doors.

"Most people use the front door," he said. "Or the phone."

"Well, you did catch me at a lull in the binge of sex, drinking, and other deviant behavior," Robin said, gesturing for Anael to come inside. "So I guess your timing is good."

"Well I've been spending a lot of time in strangers' beds," Robin said. "So that answers both inquiries, actually. You want a drink?"

"Usually," Robin said dryly, and went to poor them both glasses of scotch.

Anael wasn't really someone that Robin wanted to see right now. If he looked into Robin's soul or whatever and saw some kind of heartbreak, Robin most certainly didn't want to hear about it.

Robin flopped into a chair. "Whatever it is you think you're feeling from me, it's probably just something residual," he said. "I don't really want to hear it."

Robin froze. He hadn't actually expected to hear Prometheus' name come out of Anael's mouth. It took him off guard.

But the reaction was only for a moment, and then it was wiped away, replaced with careful nonchalance.

He shrugged. "It doesn't matter. He's gone anyway, just like always. I don't care what he thinks of my sex life."

Robin let out a snort of laughter. "Oh, you think everybody loves everybody. And don't look at me like that, I'm not some broken heart for you to piece back together."

Part of Robin wanted to know exactly what was said. He wanted to know for sure if this really had been why Prometheus left. But maybe a bigger part of him didn't want to know.

Should he be blaming Anael? Should he be angry?

"Well if that's why he left, then fuck him," Robin said, and stood up so that he could pour himself another drink.

Robin looked away from him. "Prometheus knows who I am. What I am. Even if he did feel something for me... whatever you told him, it shouldn't matter. So it can't be that. Okay?"

Robin let it linger for a moment, and then pulled his hand away.

"I told you, I'm not broken."

Robin sighed. "You're an odd bird."

Robin let Anael take his hand, but only for a second, because then he was pulling away and standing again. "Well, there you are. You've unburdened yourself, and there's no need to feel guilty about... whatever. All is well."

Robin crossed his arms over his chest. "Is there something you want that doesn't involve healing my broken heart?"

Robin looked at him for a moment, and then let out a quiet sigh. "I don't feel like being loved right now, Anael."

Robin nearly said something else - what, an apology? - but he stopped himself. He wasn't angry at Anael, but he just couldn't handle this right now, not with how he was feeling about Prometheus. The last thing Robin wanted was to reflect on his own feelings. To think about love.

"Come by another time," he said after a moment.
