Anael nearly stumbled out of the church, doubt and fear gnawing at him harder than they ever had. Sunny had nothing new for him, and God kept silent. God would not answer any of his prayers; of course not, not anymore than They had let him into Their presence, not since the War and Anael's defiance. He had talked to the priest, in the hope that a man of God might help quell his doubts, but the priest had been a sham, the sort of man doomed for hell for some of the desires that ran through his heart.

He felt lost, and wanted to get back to Coby, focus on his love and how it always felt like salvation. But Coby was playing a concert, and Anael would not go and disturb him now. Tears welled up in his eyes and he stopped on a nearby bench, sitting there and covering his face with his hands, trying to get a hold on himself.

Robin might not have even noticed him were it not for the fact that he thought it strange to see someone sobbing in front of a church. It was enough to make his gaze linger as he walked by... and that was when he saw that it was Anael.

He stopped in his tracks. He had not seen Anael since that day he'd been interrogated over his ability to love.

He walked over, and looked down at him. "Anael," he said.

Robin couldn't help but look a little shocked at seeing him like that.

He sat down on the bench beside him.

"What's happened?"

"That wasn't what I asked," Robin said gently.

His heart was not a block of ice, after all. Seeing someone like Anael like this was upsetting. Regardless of how they'd last left things.

Robin had known a number over the years, and still he had only the most basic knowledge of angels. But he knew what Ishiah had been through ...

He hesitated. "But you haven't... fallen? It's something else?"

"I'm sorry," Robin said. Because he was.

"Want to go to a bar and get hammered?" he added, because this was his answer to all ills to which there were no answers.

Robin frowned. "You're stuck here and you can't even get drunk? What about drugs?"

Robin was kind of at a loss. After a visible hesitation, he slipped an arm around Anael's shoulders.

Robin held him, and said nothing, because he seriously had no idea what to say. Anael was right, there was nothing he could do to help.

"You don't have to be sorry," Robin said. "Obviously. I'm sorry I'm not... well, I'm not very good at this. I'm sure there's someone who'd be better at the comforting thing."

"Anael." Robin said his name quietly, and waited for him to look at him. "I am sorry I upset you, the last time we talked. I hope you know that I care about you. And I am sorry that this happened to you."

"You're welcome," said Robin, "but is there actually anything I can do for you? It's uh, it's slightly disturbing to see you so sad, Anael."

Robin hesitated visibly, and then finally, he nodded. Anael was probably right. He wouldn't actually want Robin to fake it; he'd know. And Robin wasn't convinced he had whatever it was Anael wanted.

"Anael..." Robin sighed. And then said firmly, "No."

"No," said Robin. "I'm not just going to go home and leave you here sobbing on a park bench."

Robin could certainly understand why he might not be someone's first choice when it came to a comforting shoulder. "Well... okay," he finally said.

"Of course I am," Robin said. "Doesn't mean I can't worry about you."

He paused. Then after a second said, "Prometheus is back in London." Less as a response to Anael's statement and more because he figured he should know. Since they didn't seem to get along very well.

Robin opened his mouth, then closed it again. Finally he said,"I'm not sure that's precisely the way I would phrase it. But." He shrugged. "He's here, for now, and I like having him around." Prometheus was certainly warmer this time around. Robin, of course, was still wary of getting too attached. Because odds were, he'd be gone again any time.

"While they last," Robin agreed.

Robin wasn't sure what else to say about Prometheus to Anael. So he only offered a little shrug, and then finally, a small smile. "Well if there's anything I can do to help you, let me know," Robin said. He didn't outright offer his skills that might be less than godly, legal, or moral, but he knew that Anael knew what he could offer him if he needed it.

Robin actually felt a little badly about what had happened between them. He wasn't entirely sure why he'd reacted the way he did. And he also wasn't sure if his change of heart now had anything to do with Prometheus being back.

He did, however, lean in and kiss Anael's cheek.

"Stay in touch, okay?" he said.
