"I couldn't. I knew," Damian tells him. "I knew." And he's wondering how long can go by until he can take Colin home and introduce him to his new home, get him alone.

"Even then?" Colin says, still awed at Damian's abilities.

"Yes. Well," Damian pauses, unable to lie to Colin at all. "After a moment or two."

Colin smiles, feeling Damian's honesty urges. "How did you know?"

"Your smell, your - everything," Damian says, then shakes his head. "I don't know. I just knew that I didn't want to scare you away from me. Which doesn't happen. So that was a clue, you could say."

"I'm not scared of you," Colin agrees. He rubs his face against Damian's--expensively, wonderfully soft--jacket. "I thought you wanted privacy, and I wanted to give you what you wanted--even then. Especially now."

Damian gets a particularly strong whiff of both his and Colin's scents mixed together and gives out a low, pleased hum. "I don't want privacy now," he says, then shakes his head again. "Ah, no, I do. But for us."

"I want to be alone with you, too," Colin agrees. "Somewhere we can sit down together," he suggests. His feet are starting to hurt from being on them all this time.

Bruce, Jason, Alfred and Mother Superior must be about finished with the preliminaries by now--she'd have to agree to let Colin go, it wouldn't be right to keep an unstable Sentinel and brand new Guide away from each other. There's no denying the bond; either it happens now with her blessing, or later behind her back.

Damian pulls away just a little to look around. "There has got to be a bench around here," he says. "What kind of stupid balcony doesn't have a bench?"

Jason'll probably make sure there's a sizeable donation to the orphanage as well.

"The kind where no one goes, I guess?" Colin guesses, seeing as since Damian's come out here, no one else has.

No doubt--as thanks for keeping Colin fed and clothed all these years 'til Damian could come find him.

(OKAAAAY GOOD LUCK WITH THE WRITING I actually spent yesterday catching up on the days before when I didn't write, heh. Like we swapped over.)

"Balconies are famously great places for couples," Damian reminds Colin, smirking. Not because he's flirting, as it's entirely possible that he'll end up just as bad as his father in that respect, but because he's enjoying Colin's attempt to answer the riddle of the stupid balcony.

(It took me a minute to figure out what you were saying but I GOT THERE IN THE END XD also I hit the word count woooooooo and it's all sad Jason stuff. Well. Happy Jason stuff. But that's sad. I think. Yes.)

"Well," Colin says, and blushes. He tries again. "Well. Maybe they saw that this one was occupied already."

Damian stops and lays the back of his hand to Colin's cheek. He just wants to, so he does. "Perhaps," Damian murmurs, not really thinking about what they're talking about any longer.

(Hey, I never claimed that it would be anything different. Though, to be fair, it's going to be the Chronicles of All of Them if it all works out well. It's just a little easier to write the Jason stuff because he bumps up the word count with cussing XD Damian's going to be easy, too, because he uses less contractions. Dick's going to be the hardest, actually, since Steph talks a lot and Tim thinks a lot. Anyway anyway. Yeah. I also wrote a little on Dick and a little on the Joker. I've been flitting all over this one.)

Colin loses the ability to breathe--his mouth goes dry and his heart skips. This touch is /different/. Damian's been touching him all evening but this touch--Damian is putting out a very different kind of feeling. He leans his face into Damian's hand willingly. It's so nice to be touched like this. Like he's precious.

(At least with Dick you can have him brooding on rooftops then turning around and bouncing 'happily'. He can babble away your word count, eheh.)

"Hnn," Damian growls, though not with any /malice/ and meets Colin's eyes. His pupils are blown, his already pretty intense look growing even more so. "I, ah. We need to get away from here."

(Perhaps! He's going to have his hands full with taking care of the flock, to be honest. So it's entirely possible. Sigh. Dick, I should be able to write you more easily, you were the first favorite.)

Colin completely agrees. He doesn't want anyone near Damian right now, and he doesn't want this feeling contaminated by other people around them. "And go where?"

Damian takes Colin's hand and looks over the edge of the balcony. There's no level underneath, so they can't even jump down. He hisses a frustrated breath through his teeth. "No-where, actually. We must wait," he is not pleased about this at all. "But we can still sit." He shrugs off his jacket and lays it down on the ground, and looks at Colin as if to ask permission to bring him down to sitting with him.

(Naaaaaaaaaah, par for the course XD)

Colin takes Damian's hands in his and sits down /very/ gingerly. He doesn't want to ruin Damian's lovely clothes. "How long do you think your father will be?"

Damian pulls Colin in close to him. He's not cold at all, but he still wants Colin close enough. Once he picks his jacket from the ground it'll lose that wonderful Colin-smell and just have ground all over it. Having Colin close will combat that, he's pretty sure. "Who knows. Everyone always wants to talk to him for so long. I'm not sure why. He never says much, as far as I can tell."

(Aw, Jerelbaby. He misses his boyfriend. Weeeeell Mitz could have gone and taken that little holiday. Snerk - Jerel could end up with a very freaked Jason at his doorstep after a very freaked Catlad turns up on his roof. They probably all thought Mitz was away with the other.)

"Maybe they're all trying to get him to say more," Colin suggests, but he's not paying much attention now. Instead he's shifting and wriggling, trying to get as close to Damian as possible without actually climbing on his lap--the thought of doing that is nervewracking and maybe too familiar right now.

Damian puts his arm around Colin's shoulder and lifts his head to hook Colin's under his chin. He curls around him, shielding him from everything, everyone. "My father is one of the most interesting persons on the planet," he says quietly, like it's a secret. "But he rarely says anything interesting. He can talk for hours. But he never says much."

"He probably chooses to only say the most important things," Colin surmises. He rubs his nose against Damian's collar, and settles against his chest with a tiny yawn. He's never felt so--safe.

(Not if they used pre-paid disposable ones, or so Jerel gathered from pimps and crack dealers when he was younger on the street in Bludhaven.)

Damian thinks that's probably true, and that it sounds entirely like his father, but it doesn't make him feel any better. Only that it's clear that his father has nothing important to say to him. He tightens his arm around Colin and closes his eyes. All that doesn't matter now.

(Might work for Snooze, but Jason and Mitz can't afford to do something like that. Not if they want to eat.)

Well, Bruce probably more likely just doesn't know how to say the things that are important that he wants to say to Damian.

Colin breathes in the faint smell of Damian's cologne. He couldn't imagine what it must be like to be a Sentinel, especially one without a Guide, but if Damian is this pleased to have found Colin that it must have besn difficult for Damian all this time. Colin's going to make sure Damian's happier from now on.

It's porbably around now that the adults approach the boys on the balcony.

Almost definitely. But not the way Damian sees it.

To be honest, it's not even the whole Guide and Sentinel, Sentinel and Guide thing that's making Damian so happy. Colin is, essentially, someone who will always be there. Depending on someone doesn't come easy to Damian, so the fancy genetic push is appreciated. And he knows he can trust Colin. What kind of Guide would hurt their own Sentinel? He's a best friend. Damian's always wanted a best friend that isn't a dog. Snooze is close, but they're still brothers. They still compete and are a little weird around each other about some things, like emotions and secrets and even their mothers. Or, really, Damian is. But he won't be like that around Colin.

Jason'll go closer first, seeing as he doesn't pose as much of a threat to Damian's hair-trigger Sentinel responses at the moment. "Hey, lovebugs," he calls, practically cooing. That'll get Damian's attention.

"Get away from here, Todd," Damian growls dangerously. Jason ignores him.

"Alfie's bringing the car around."

(I can't see Mitz accepting that so easily. He doesn't want to use Jerel as a meal ticket. But Jason might? Hard to tell with him.)

Poor kid. One day they might get their shit together.

Colin will--probably quietly and hurt--call Damian out on it if he starts acting like that around him: like Colin is just another person who's going to leave Damian, or another person he has to prove himself to. He's definitely going to be someone who's always there, because he's terrified Damian will leave him, too.

Colin looks up from where his face is tucked into Damian's torso. He's gettint the strangest kind of emotional feedback from this new man: like he's feeling what Colin's feeling, but Colin's feeling what the guy is feeling which is what Colin is feeling. It's--really weird. "Who is this?" he whispers to Damian.

(Also: Jerel's not a meal ticket. He's putting an essential method of communication in the hands of people who need to communicate.)

"My father's idiotic, bravado infested partner. Guide," he clarifies for Colin, then addresses Jason again. The tone of his voice shifts noticeably; he was gentle, if a little frustrated due to subject matter, with Colin. It's obvious he doesn't want to talk to Jason. "I'm not going anywhere without my Guide, Todd."

Jason sighs. "Look, your dad talked to the Mother Superior about Colin--"

Damian growls softly, like he doesn't even like the idea of someone else saying Colin's name.

"--and we're all set to go."

And, Damian will probably have a couple of moments like that. Just worried about proving to Colin that he's worth being around, that Colin will enjoy life with him. But it'll all fade away into genuine comfort in a short time, most likely.

Colin rubs the back of Damian's neck when Damian starts to growl. He's staring at Jason. Before tonight he'd never even heard of Guides--now he's looking at a proper one right in front of him. It's a lot to take in.

Then Jason says they're good to go, and Colin perks up a lot. "Really? She's all right with it? I can go with Damian?" He's praying he understood that right.

Oddly enough, despite all their insecurities and issues, these two will probably be the easiest to sort out.

"What would be the point in lying about that?" Jason says easily, like he doesn't have an on edge, teenage Sentinel grinding his teeth at him. "She's fine with it, kiddo. We're worried," he says, glancing back at where Bruce is standing. "About getting you two out of here. Don't wanna start a fight."

"What's /that/ supposed to mean?" Damian snaps. His voice is kept quiet, but that's more a testament to how agitated he is. His father, his mother /and/ his grandfather speak quietly when they're on edge or angry.

Oh, definitely. They both just want somebody to love and for them to love them back.

Colin winces at the sharp edge in Damian's voice. He lets his hand run down Damian's spine, hoping to calm him down, distract him. "You're getting angry," he tells Damian. "He's just trying to help. You don't want me around people and I don't want to be around people right now," he reminds Damian. "If there's any trouble we'll be here longer than we have to."

Bruce is nearly hypnotised himself by all the calm vibes Jason is radiating--not to mention the boy, Colin. He says, finally, "Other people won't understand how you're feeling, Damian. There could be trouble."

Damian looks at his father, hearing his words but wanting to dismiss them, then goes back to holding onto Colin while he thinks. He should get his Guide home. If he stays here with all these strangers then anything could happen, things that they aren't prepared for. Damian keeps interrupting any bonding instincts from taking over and he's already angry at himself. If anyone else did it - Colin's right (and Jason, and Bruce, but he doesn't think about that). Damian could snap at any second. "What would you like to do?" He asks Colin quietly. "How would you like to leave?"

Jason looks over at Bruce, watching his face for any possible parental responses. Feeling them is one thing. But it's rare to /see/.

"Quietly. Quickly," Colin says. "The car sounds good." He chewed on his lip. "I don't want to be apart from you."

Bruce is paying fierce attention to the boys, while blocking enough of the doorway so no one can see outside. He's attempting to discern how far the bonding process has gotten. It may be that they need to walk around the building instead lf going through it. He knows Jason's looking at him but he doesn't know why.

"I am not going to move from your side," Damian promises into Colin's hair, moving his head to bury his face to be able to do so. "No-one is going to get near you."

"We'll keep you two by the wall until we get to the elevator. But, kiddiewinks, we won't really be able to get separate elevators. You're minors and B's a public figure. He has to be seen taking care of you," Jason says. When he was more damaged, he probably would have gotten a kick out of Bruce not showing an ounce of pride at how good Damian's being with his Guide. Now he wonders if the big guy even got choked up on Damian's first day of school. Eh, no big. He knows what's going on inside the big lug, for the most part.

"That sounds okay," Colin says, looking up at Jason--and the huge man who had to be Damian's father, they looked so much alike--then back to Damian. "Right? Doesn't that sound okay?"

Bruce knew beyond doubt that Damian would be excellent with his Guide. Not only has he worked with Damian to ensure it, but Damian is naturally thoroughly protective, and Bruce has seen how gently he handles animals, even if he is brash and abrasive with people. So while he is proud, he's more--nodding at his perceptions and observations being correct. He doesn't give himself much of the credit for Damian's successes. It's all Damian.

Damian is quiet for a long moment. He speaks through gritted teeth, but he's attempting to get through this civilly. When he gets angry, Colin's breathing quickens just enough to communicate distress. "I /do not/ like the idea. I hope that's clear. But - I suppose it's unavoidable, isn't it."

"That's what I'm saying," Jason says brightly, rocking a little on the balls of his feet. "We'll be there, at the door, and we'll walk just a little behind you. It'll look like we don't want to leave the party. Right, B? You great big billionaire playboy." He flashes a charming smile at Bruce.

"It's either this or stay where we are for the rest of forever," Colin points out. "We should stand up, come on."

Bruce rewards Jason with a single chuckle. "Yes, of course." Because somehow he has to be the commanding father figure, the cunning businessman and the ditzy playboy, all at once, these days--and he certainly hasn't learned his lesson about partying after not one but two illegitimate sons showed up on his doorstep.

Damian rises quickly, but only so he can help Colin up. Otherwise he doesn't move too far away from him at all. He even picks his coat up with his foot and kicks it into his hand so that he doesn't have to bend down and away from Colin's side. "All right. I'm ready. Are you ready?"

Jason leaves them and goes to stand next to Bruce. He wants to do something thoroughly cheeky like kiss his cheek or even his hand - but he'll wait until they need to distract the press, he supposes.

Colin holds onto Damian's free hand as he stands. He looks scruffy next to Damian, who manages to still look chic after sitting on the cold ground for a while. Oh, well. He doesn't have to look at himself. He gets to look at Damian, instead. "I'm ready."

Bruce stands aside for Colin and Damian to re-enter the ballroom. "Keep to the wall," he reminds them again, probably unnecessarily. His step aside has the fortunate effect of bringing him closer to Jason. /He/ wants to do something thoroughly possessive like sliding his arm around Jason's waist, after seeing Damian be so obvious and public about clinging to Colin. Bruce has never had the opportunity to do that. Damian is quite lucky.

Damian ignores his father - and mostly because if he tries to reply he knows he'll end up seeing a threatening alpha Sentinel instead of his father. And that won't end well. He takes Colin's hand and leads him through the crowd. He keeps Colin to the wall so that he's mostly protected, and breathes a sigh of relief when they reach the elevator.

Maybe one day. Jason's a huge romantic, even if he talks himself out of it. Constantly.

Colin hits the button to call the elevator and leans into Damian. He's determinedly not looking at the rest of the ballroom--not even Mother Superior or any of the nuns or other orphans from St. Jude's--but just focusing on Damian. His Sentinel is anxious and on the edge, and Colin can't wait to hug him again, and feel Damian relax against him.

Bruce settles for placing a hand at the small of Jason's back--guiding him, for lack of a better word, along behind the boys.

Damian can't wait until he's out of the same elevator as his father and Todd, and they're not even in there yet. He dares a glance over his shoulder at them and growls quietly. "What is /taking/ them so long."

Jason never knows if it's because he's Bruce's Guide or because of their own personal issues, but it always makes him impossibly happy when Bruce does things like that. Probably appearing a little pushy to the outside observer but that's about as affectionate as Bruce gets in public without being fake with some supermodel. And it's no small thing.

Colin squeezes Damian's hand, running his thumb over Damian's knuckles. He's about to reply when Bruce and Jason arrive behind them, and the elevator dings open, at the same time.

One day Bruce might even work his way up to announcing to the world that he's not going to hang all over supermodels anymore.

Damian both tenses up and clicks his tongue in relief. Stepping inside and bringing Colin with him, he automatically puts Colin in one of the corners of the elevator and stands in front of him.

"Easy, shortstuff," Jason murmurs, but does nothing else apart from try to keep as calm as possible. He wants this to be over as well, as painlessly as possible.

And, uh. ...Jason'd like that. But, pfff, whatever.

Bruce twinkles his fingers at the paparazzi as he disappears inside the elevator. The doors close before anyone can get much of a photo, which is good. Now they just have to get to the car. Bruce is poised at the doors of the elevator, radiating protection. No one's getting close to anyone who's in this elevator without his say so.

Colin doesn't protest being put in the corner--as soon as he's there, as soon as Damian's positioned in front of him, he can feel how much of the anxiety melts away. It's so weird. It's like his feeling-emotions thing is getting stronger the longer he spends around Damian.

Damian is single minded in his need to get Colin home. He's not allowing himself to think about anything else in case he gets distracted.

Jason snorts at Bruce's display for the press, then again when he goes all Stoic Wayne Face once the doors are closed.
