On impulse, Snooze reaches out and takes hold of Mitz's hand again.
The colour of Mitz's face is the only thing keeping Jerel from wolf-whistling at the gesture.

Jerel shakes Connor's hand. Cute little farmboy, is the first impression he gets. Or, really -- cute big farmboy. "I'll withhold my judgements until the tribal ceremony, don't worry," Jerel assures him, grinning.

Jerel barely holds himself back from saying 'oh my god'. He does make a dreamy little noise, and sighs.

Mitz stares at their hands for a little longer than he probably should, then he smiles gratefully at Snooze. (If Jerel had wolf whistled there, Mitz would've drop Snooze's hand out of embarrassment and stared out the window.)

"Swell, he knows about the ceremony," Connor says happily to everyone there, not missing a beat. "Tonight is already looking up."
Dick snorts and stands in close to Jerel, slipping an arm around Jerel's waist. He realised they weren't touching as much as he normally would be touching a date--and it's also a bit of a thankful gesture. Jerel's taking everything in his stride.

Dick's eyes open slowly and he looks down at Jerel. He's smiling so softly but Dick doesn't realise he's doing it. Jerel's really handsome.

Snooze gives him a little smile back. He has to keep reminding himself that this isn't a proper date. (Good thing Jerel has, like, one decent bone in his body, then.)

Jerel leans into Dick with natural ease. And it might not be purely to keep up his cover. He's a thief and a prostitute, after all, he's not of the highest character. He can admit that he's attracted to his client, and he's thinking about flipping off his personal rules and seducing the man.
"Was I not supposed to talk about the ceremony?" he asks Dick in a loud stage whisper.

Who's smiling? Because Jerel is definitely smiling, his eyes closed in bliss. Anyone from school could see them right now and he wouldn't care. He's feeling confident in this plan. And more than a little jazzed by a new, different friendship.

Mitz just keeps wondering what Snooze'd be like if he were out with someone he liked, on a real date. And it makes him a little sad since Snooze seems to think no-one wants anything to do with him. (We like that bone, Jerel.)

Dick laughs and is about to answer, but Bruce's hand lands on his shoulder and he stills. He's not tense or stressed or anything, but completely still. And, even though Bruce is nowhere near him, Tim stands a little straighter as well.
"Did someone ruin the surprise? Their faces when the ritual starts..." Bruce attempts to join in. Dick nudges Bruce with his elbow encouragingly.
"Jerel," Dick smiles. "This is Bruce Wayne."

Dick's smiling, not that he knows. He starts gently styling Jerel's hair into different and interesting shapes.

If it were a real date, the only real difference would be that Snooze wouldn't be so hesitant. He's got that arrogant streak where if he likes someone, of course they must like him back, so he can show it however he wants. (hip thrust HOOAH)

Jerel is, being honest, a little alarmed by everyone's body-language reaction to this guy. He's never heard anything about Bruce Wayne being particularly abusive, but everyone is suddenly /wary/, everyone's watching Bruce out of the corner of their eye or straight on, and his sons -- save Jason -- are at parade rest, like they've been trained.
It's really kind of spooky.
He turns and offers Bruce his hand. "It's nice to meet you, Mr. Wayne. Naturally, I've heard a lot about you."

Jerel is quickly dozing off, so he has to keep waking himself back up. At one point, he opens his eyes, and catches sight of Dick's kind of goofy little smile. "Are you making my hair into a penis or something?"

it's halloweeeeeeen I had to throw spooky in there somewhere

To be fair, if Mitz looked like Snooze he'd be the same. (he wouldn't) (facepalm)

"Naturally," Bruce says easily, shaking Jerel's hand firmly. "You're with Dick?" He asks Jerel, but looks at Dick--who shrugs.
"We met recently. I didn't say anything, but... Well, look at him. Couldn't /not/ show him off, right?"
The tiny joke diffuses the moment well enough to relax everyone else, at least, and Tim and Connor make their way into the dining room to get good seats.

"You don't have enough hair," Dick answers honestly.

If Mitz looked like Snooze, and Snooze still looked like Snooze, that would be a /very/ strange date. In any case: Jerel probably obnoxiously sings along in a falsetto voice to most of the pop music love songs, and their arrival at the school hall can't come soon enough.

Jerel pretends to be exasperated as he looks at Dick, and he nudges him with his hip. "Show me off? What am I, a new purse?" Of course, he's lying, because as an escort, he's there exactly for the reason of showing off.

"So you've tried it and discarded it," Jerel surmises.

Mitz is torn. He wishes Jerel would stop but he doesn't want to get to the dance any quicker than they need to. He's nearly wrecked with anxiety by the time they pull up, and he's counting slowly in his head to try to get back to earth as Jerel parks. He doesn't let go of Snooze's hand. He can't.

Dick smiles, then kisses Jerel's cheek tenderly. "I wouldn't say that," he says.
Bruce squeezes Dick's shoulder again, catching his attention. "Well, at least I'm not the only one introducing everyone to a fresh face," he says. Dick reads that for what it is: I brought an outsider too, we can cover each other. But I'm doing it for a job. Dick lifts his shoulder, both shaking Bruce off and shrugging again.
"Yeah, tonight'll be fun."

"Nope," Dick smiles wider. "I tried a vagina first. But since that didn't work out, I figured a penis wouldn't."

Snooze shuffles over so he can get out with Mitz on Mitz's side. He's his bodyguard. He'd better guard his body.

"Fresh face," Jerel echoes. "I like that," he adds, even though he doesn't, and it sounds weirdly spooky. He winds his arm with Dick's. "Let's go sit," he suggests. "You keep saying things about this incredible dinner."
Damian is hovering near Bruce, waiting somewhat patiently for some attention. Colin's still upstairs finding something to wear, so if he's going to leave off antagonising Drake, then he wants some kind of fatherly approval or attention. Someone give him validation!

"Well, there's a lot more detail in a vagina than in a penis," Jerel says bluntly. "My hair just wants to stick outwards, you could probably have a lot more luck with a penis."

Once outside, Mitz leans against Jerel's car. This is going to be awful. He smiles at Snooze, hoping his terror doesn't show too much. "Looking forward to this? The dance, I mean."

"Won't be on the table yet," Dick says. He starts walking, though, glad of the reprieve from Bruce's veiled messages and meaningful looks even if it means walking in on Jason and Kory making kissy faces. "But if Tim and Connor haven't taken the really good seats, we might be able to snag a place where the dessert cart is going to park."
Bruce does what he does when meaning to give affection, a heavy hand on a shoulder, to Damian and faces the door. He does have a date arriving but she's low-level European nobility so she's probably going to be a little more than fashionably late. They can wait together.

"That's usually how it goes, yeah," Dick jokes easily.

"It should be fun," Snooze agrees. "I hope there is some decent music."
"See ya, kiddos," Jerel says, waving as he heads off into the hall. "Don't come find me before midnight or I'll make you walk home."

"There's a dessert cart? That's an incredible thing," Jerel says, approving. Anything to get Dick's mind off the awkwardness that is, apparently, his entire family.
Damian is in favour of the silent hand-on-shoulder. Quiet support.

Jerel snickers. "Somehow I don't think you're talking about hair anymore."

"Don't," Mitz starts to yell, then quiets his voice self-consciously. "Don't get drunk, please."

"And, remember, chocolate lava cake," Dick says, then makes an orgasmic noise. "I can't wait, your mind will be blown."
Once they're really alone, though, they can swap quiet and serious thoughts on Dick's date. And how he didn't tell anyone he was dating again.

"And here's me thinking I was being subtle," Dick rolls his eyes and flicks Jerel's forehead playfully.

"Yeah, yeah, yeah," Jerel says, his voice fading as he disappears.
Snooze squeezes Mitz's hand. "He knows he has to drive. He will not be irresponsible," he says, because Mitz looks really concerned.

"How could I forget?" Jerel grins. He makes a conscious effort not to respond to that orgasmic noise. There are some cues you just really want to act on--and shouldn't in front of someone's little brothers.
And how this one must be really something if he brought him to the Manor without the guy knowing the family secret, and why everyone acts so weird.

Jerel immediately reaches up and swats Dick's chin in return.

Mitz forces a smile. "Yeah. He's not irresponsible," he tells Snooze. "But his friends..." Mitz shakes his head. "Soooo. Want to go into the hall?" Mitz takes Snooze's ticket out of his jacket pocket and offers it.

"One step closer to the best date ever aware," Dick grins and winks at him.
It wouldn't be the first time Dick's brought home someone random, but not when there are so many vigilantes and capes in the house.

Dick laughs. "Tough guy, huh."

Snooze takes his ticket and nods. "I am looking forward to seeing the decorations. You were on the committee, yes? What is it like?"

"Oh, you," Jerel says, and flutters his eyelashes very obviously. Then he goes back to normal and grins at Dick.
Exactly. Very curious. He must trust this person.

Mitz goes pink. "Uh. Yes? It's... it's like an Egyptian themed thing? I didn't come up with it," Mitz adds quickly. "It was a vote at the start of the semester. But, uh, I build things. So."

Dick likes that smile. He hopes it's honest. He leads him and Jerel near where Alfred usually parks the dessert cart, which is conveniently close to Tim and Connor and just a seat away from Jason and Kory. It's not so bad, Dick realises, with Jerel's maybe-honest smile going.
Perhaps. Dick does things for surprising reasons, sometimes.

Dick paps Jerel's face gently and goes back to petting his hair.

Snooze looks excited. "Will you show me the things you contributed?"

And now the real work begins, Jerel thinks to himself -- now comes the time of trying to keep Dick's attention, and keep him happy. And present himself as being happy, which isn't difficult at the moment. He decides to sit with Dick on one side and Jason and Kory on the other, to give Dick a little breathing room.
He is not always logical.

Jerel lets his hands fall and tucks them under his chin. Never mind, keep 'em where they are, that's good.

"Oh, uh," Mitz nervously messes with his hair. "Yes? I mean, they're not that impressive. I mean, I'm getting an award. But I think it's because of cumulative work?"

Everything's fine, really. Dick knew it would be. It's all fine until it becomes obvious that Tim and Connor are holding hands under the table, or when Kory giggles a laugh that was supposed to be just for Dick, reminding him that not only was he not good enough for her but the one thing he wanted--everyone he loves to be happy--is the thing that's making him feel more alone. Dick's reactions will be sharp intakes of breath before talking to Jerel about something, anything. Family, probably. Dick doesn't even care if everything Jerel says is a lie.
Logical human beings do not exist, Damian.

Yeah, that's what Dick thought. He smiles again, aware of it. Also aware of how nice it feels to do this. It's kind of sad that it's not real.

"I still want to see," Snooze says, patiently. "When I am participating in archery contests, I never believe I am being all that impressive, and still others like to look. I think it must be a quirk of talent to never believe what you yourself do is all that incredible because you do it every day. So, the things that you have built, to you, are everyday. But to me, they will be something very different and new."

Jerel will tell a couple of selective stories about Mitz, and maybe a couple of stories that he's intercepted from other peoples' families calling them his cousins, or something. But he'll also talk to Dick about things like education, and sports -- gotta talk about those local sports teams -- and local gossip, trying to make him laugh with stories of things he's seen at parties but will pretend he read about in tabloids.
Unfortunately, Damian is coming to see that as the truth.

It's real in a certain way. It's real in a way that might be making Jerel wish it was real, too.

Mitz goes entirely gooey. "That's, uh, that's a really nice way of looking that things," he says. He kind of scuffs his shoes against the ground. "Maybe that's the way it is. I hope so. I'd like it if you liked the things I did. I mean--yeah, no, that's what I mean. I just don't think it's going to impress you that much, is all." He hands his ticket to the kid at the front table and takes a slow breath to try to calm his heart down. He's way overstimulated already.

Dick will laugh, and not just because he really, really wants to look like he's having fun. He likes Jerel's quickness---and he's heartbroken that it's wasted on people who only want him for sex, not for him. And when Bruce walks in with rich, mildly important, Eurotrash on his arm, he's going to turn Jerel's chin. "Speaking of tabloid weirdness," he mutters, grinning.
It's not such a bad thing, at times. But Dick, more than anyone else in this, ah, family, is ruled by emotion.

It'll be real for a whole weekend, at least.

Snooze hands in his ticket, too, and they get them back with a bit ripped off, to show they've been inside once. If they leave, they can still come back, up to curfew. So they can go outside and come back, if it gets too loud or just too much inside. That's nice.
"You are getting an award," Snooze reminds him, echoing back what Mitz just said. "So someone must have been impressed." He smiles at Mitz.
He'll protect Mitz from Mitz's own demons, tonight, too, as best as he can.

And Jerel's stomach twists a little, because he's seen her around before -- she's on the social circuit, some European lady, a Bavarian countess or something utterly irrelevant in the modern age but still influential because of the bucketloads of money. And hopefully she won't recognise him for what he is. Who he is. Still, his facial expression remains cheeky. "Where's my headline generator when I need it?"
Positive emotion, in any case.

As real as they can make it. Jerel opens his eyes again, and hums thoughtfully. Does Dick want to practice kissing? Because if that's too weird, since this isn't... it's not real... if it's too weird, Jerel understands.

"Cumulative work," Mitz repeats, but he's smiling. The hall itself is decked out with papier mache mummies and sarcophagi that Mitz put together with scrap wood the decoration team got for him. There are other details; glittery palm fronds that they reused from that time the dance was all about being at the beach, a few pyramids on the stage and set up for the background in the picture taking area. Nothing impressive by far, in Mitz's opinion.

Dick laughs. "Believe me, they'll generate themselves," he says, looking on in amusement as Bruce proceeds to introduce her (Elisa Hübsch, countess of something something or another) and then drape himself on her. It's been a while since Bruce has had to go into his playboy role, so it's a little funny to watch. Especially with Damian looking on in horror and embarrassment.
Damian isn't wrong.

Dick half-smiles. Getting all bashful all of a sudden, Stillhaven? No, they should kiss. They definitely should. It has to look comfortable and familiar, Dick says with only a tiny amount of excitement in his voice.

"Take me on a tour?" Snooze asks. He tends mostly to avoid this many strangers in one place at one time, and he thinks Mitz probably does, too. Chattering about the decorations for a little while might relax them enough to enjoy the music.

Damian will find his father's behaviour utterly insipid, even if it's for a case that he's well aware of. He may have supported the idea in theory, but in practice, it's much worse. At least he won't have any trouble playing the awkward son.
Jerel comes up with a couple of scandalous headlines, whispered right into Dick's ear.
Of course he isn't.

Okay. Well. Jerel reluctantly sits up, pulling himself away from Dick's magic fingers, and licks his lips. It's still going to be weird, so, yeah. Practicing might help make it less weird.

Mitz is scanning the room as soon as they're in, and he's distracted as he answers. "Yeah," he says slowly, then blinks at Snooze while he plays back what he actually asked. "Oh. Yeah! Sure. If you really want?"

Which everyone but Connor and Colin will find absolutely /hilarious/. Well. Kory might not care either way.
They're just going to end up whispering at each other and laughing quietly, all the while Dick's going to be thinking about how nice it'd be if they /had/ met organically, normally. And, y'know, Jason might notice a sad smile or two.
Bruce chuckles, then steps away from Damian when Elisa's car pulls up.

Dick's stomach flips nervously, but he ignores it. It's not any more nerve wracking than jumping from a trapeze, he tells himself, then hooks his fingers under Jerel's chin. It's a little weird, he admits. But that's okay, right? Aren't all first kisses a little weird?

"I do," Snooze assures him, looking around at the room with interest. Every kid is interested in mummies at some point: Snooze is no different.

Damian will end up growling a whole lot until Colin distracts him. It'll be super cute.
That'd be the thing. Dick's not usually sad about the people he's dating /while/ he's dating them. Especially not on the second date. That comes later. Any time Jerel notices a wistful look like that, he'll bring up something he's already found to make Dick smile.
Damian is pleased with himself for amusing his father; that's not something that happens everyday. He checks up the stairs again for Colin, then plays the dutiful son until Colin shows up and he can scoot off. He doesn't shift from foot to foot, on the outside, at least.

Most of them have a more normal backstory than this one, Jerel points out. Still, he doesn't pull away from Dick's fingers on his chin. That's actually kind of reassuring.

Mitz doesn't really believe him but on the off-chance that Snooze is actually interested and not just being way nice, Mitz walks him through the displays. He tells Snooze how they were made and who made them--Mitz isn't the only one on the construction team, obviously, otherwise he wouldn't be in the mess he's in right now. It has to be said, though, the things that he made are just a little more detailed and better put together.

Colin gently petting his arm and commenting on how happy his father looks, isn't that sweet?
As the night goes on, that smile get more and more earnest and therefore forced. But that won't happen for a while. Dick's going to love watching Jerel react to the the food spread, the food, and how fun it can be here once his brothers start loosening up.
Colin won't be long. It's probably just nerves at being all dressed up that has him taking so long in the first place.

Sometimes, Dick allows. But the best stories are a little weird. He gets in a little closer. He's going to kiss Jerel now. Cool?

Snooze asks questions about the history and inspiration behind a couple of things, and he expresses honest admiration of the delicate details Mitz put on to a couple of his pieces. "I was right," Snooze tells him after a little while. "You are very talented, to me."

That will reduce Damian's growling to grumbling, for sure.
Oh, Jerel will happily praise the food and the preparation that must have gone into it. He'll find himself very much liking Alfred, too. Maybe it's something to do with them both being service staff.
Probably. And he wouldn't have had much nice to wear, so I'm thinking he might have asked Damian if he could find something of his that fits to wear. 2qt.

Before he can be any more hesitant and embarrassing, Jerel leans in and kisses Dick, first. Sometimes you've just got to swallow your tongue and do the thing.

Mitz doesn't say anything, but ducks his head and blushes hard. It's one thing to have a group of teachers pull a name out of a hat to congratulate, but another when they're standing right in front of something Mitz has made and getting praised for it.

Colin will be pleased with that. He likes to help cheer Damian up.
Though I'm not sure Alfred would agree with him that they're in the same industry even at a glance, that's probably true. And he likes anyone who works so hard at keeping Master Dick's mind off his worry.
Damian's little possessive face fixing his tie around Colin's neck, aw.

That's surprising, but nice. /Really/ nice. Dick's going to have to make sure they do a lot of this while he has the chance.

Snooze simply takes hold of Mitz's hand again and goes back to inspecting the detail on the sarcophagus they've stopped in front of.

Even if he does have to coax Damian down to do it. Heh. Gotta come down from the anger-frustration-awkwardness to go up in happiness.
Not only is it Jerel's job tonight, it's also his pleasure. He's really come to like Dick. He's enjoying keeping him happy and entertained.
That's the best. Damian is the best, Colin's always said.

Jerel has twisted so as to prop his hands on the grass on either side of Dick's hips. It would probably be more natural to be touching Dick -- but this isn't completely natural, is it. No matter how easy it feels.

Mitz is absently smiling while Snooze is busy, right up until he sees Thaey from across the room. He'd try to hide, or at least tell Snooze, but he's a little frozen in fear at the realisation that Thaey had been watching Mitz for a while. And he's just standing there, waiting for the best time. Mitz can't think.

Colin's used to it. It's a process he knows well and is almost a little fond of.
Which is funny, since Dick is trying his hardest to keep Jerel happy and entertained. Even if he hadn't promised Jerel a great date despite the money exchanged, he would be doing that.
Colin's slightly biased. And also knows few people to compare Damian to.

Dick's not overly touching Jerel, either. It's the sweetest, chastest first kiss he's ever had. It's actually really nice and new.

Snooze feels Mitz's hand tense in his. He doesn't immediately peg it for what it is. Instead, he simply tightens his hand around Mitz's and moves back from the piece he had been studying. He hazards a guess at the issue. "Do you want something to drink?"

Damian is... kind of glad to know that. Not that he'd ever admit it.
He doesn't have to work very hard. Dick is naturally charming, even when he's upset. Maybe especially when he's upset, because he works so hard to compensate. Jerel finds himself asking for tips on walking on his hands, when Dick gets particularly distracted by one of the others.
The biased thing, more than the other thing.

Jerel is the one to end the kiss, but he doesn't open his eyes or move far enough to put any real space between them. Instead he goes for the forehead lean, while he processes.

Mitz looks to where the drinks are, a table on the opposite side of the room to them but nowhere nearer to Thaey's glare, and nods. "Yeah. Yes. Let's get a drink," he says.

Of course he wouldn't.
Which will definitely work up until Dick realises he needs to go to the bathroom. "I don't want to leave you alone," he says quietly in Jerel's ear. "But I really have to go before I eat or drink anything else. Which is just the most attractive thing you'll hear in your life, I know." He leans back enough for Jerel to see his face, winces apologetically, and pushes away from the table.
Right, let's say that.

Dick is mirroring Jerel's exact expression. That was pretty okay, he says eventually, though his voice makes it sound like kiss me again, that was amazing.

"Do people at this school spike the drink, usually?" Snooze asks, carefully casual. At the last dance he'd attended, they had and he hadn't realised it before drinking two or three cups. That had gotten him in some serious trouble with his foster carers at the time.

Not anywhere anyone else could hear them, anyway.
Jerel's whole face crinkles up in a laughing smile. "Go, do your thing. I'll be fine, don't worry." He can handle himself for a few minutes alone, unless this is a clan of serial killers. And some of them, in any case, seem nice enough for that not to be the case.
Colin likes being biased towards Damian.

Yeah, not too weird at all, Jerel manages to say. There is now a quiet alarm going off in his head like oh my god am I bisexual.

"What?" Mitz has to think for half a second to realise what Snooze means. "Oh. No, no. If anyone is drinking, they're probably doing it at the side of the building. And smoking. And laughing at my brother's jokes because I bet he's there."

It's very important not to let anyone know you have emotions, of course.
Dick leans in and kisses Jerel on the cheek before he leaves in a kind of jogging walk. As soon as Dick's gone, there's a weird lull at the table as everyone there wrestles with the need to keep up appearances as lovely, normal people and the urge to grill Jerel about everything to within an inch of his life.
Colin--likes a lot of things that Damian doesn't understand.

Definitely not weird, Dick agrees in a distant tone.

Snooze smiles a bit. "Two separate parties, it sounds like. I think I prefer the music. Do you?"

Only the important people.
Jerel realises every eye is on him almost before Dick is even out the door. He stabs a bit of salad with his fork, eats it, and waits with an /annoying/ smile to see if anyone has the guts to go. (All Kory wants to know is if Dick is happy, and she's direct enough to ask Dick that. Damian is still too preoccupied with being uncomfortable with his 'sleazy' dad.)
Most of those being Damian himself, right?

Jerel opens his eyes, and at this close range, it's almost overwhelming. He just kissed a guy and he really, honestly liked it. A guy who he's hanging out with for almost the first time. Like, okay, he's kissed girls on the first date, too, but those were real dates. This is just a fake date. And he's not used to feeling like this on a fake date. Not that he's ever had a fake date. Oh my god, brain, shut up.

"I...hadn't thought about it," Mitz answers honestly. "I guess I would be more nervous about being out there with the cool kids than in here with the popular ones? I've never been to one of these before. I have no frame of reference, I'm sorry."

Does that mean Colin's not important?
Jason's definitely the one who has the guts, but he'll move around to sit by Jerel so that he's not shouting over the table. He takes his drink with him. "So. What's the deal?" (aw man dami)
...perhaps.

Dick takes a little longer to open his eyes and when he meets Jerel's he laughs a little, not embarrassed but not far off, and puts a little distance between them. He rubs the back of his neck, thinking about how it could work out pretty okay to have to do that for a whole weekend.

"It's all right," Snooze assures him. "I have only been to a couple. I think they change as you get older, as well." He looks out across the crowd as they make their way towards the drinks. "So the cool kids are not the popular ones, at this school? The cool kids are the rebels?" He hasn't had much of an opportunity to sort out the cliques; he avoided them, mostly.

No -- /no/, he means, only the important people get to see the -- emotions. Colin is important.
Jerel finishes chewing his salad -- wow, he thinks, that didn't take long at all -- and smiles at Jason. "Second date. Hoping for a third." Should be enough to keep it simple. (he knows it's for the mission but his father is always going on about those morals of his, it's really /strange/ to see him abandon them for a case)
Colin likes Damian. Everything else flows on out from that.

Jerel shuffles a bit and flops back on the grass, his hand over his face as he laughs, too. That might take some getting used to, he admits, his arm over his eyes.

"Uh," Mitz wiggles his fingers, making a 'kind of' motion. "A lot of the rebellious types are pretty popular, but they're also pretty important on different sports teams? Then there are the other ones that are just popular because they said they are and also they're really good-looking or rich or whatever else it takes." Mitz shrugs. "There are people like, like Thaey and my friend Mouse and Jerel who kind of fall into a lot of categories, so I don't know if there's a definite group structure? Not for them. But there are certainly groups." He pauses for breath, realises that he has to pause for breath which means he's talking too much, and then stops.

He was sorta teasing, but thank you. Damian's important to Colin, too.
Jason smiles humorlessly, and nods. "Yeah. But what's the actual deal?" he presses. "'Cos Dickie keeps on looking at you like you're leaving for a war in the morning. So tell the truth. You're an ex, huh? Doing him a solid?" Jason's pretty pleased with that guess, and he's 95% sure he's right, too. (His father continues to talk about the goodness of Gotham and how they shouldn't kill people, but his morality has always been as grey as it comes.)
Yes, that would be where Damian's having his difficulty.

Dick sucks his teeth. Oh man. He guesses that means he wasn't on his a-game, huh? Dick's half-joking around.

Snooze wouldn't dream of stopping Mitz. School politics are sort of interesting, for a certain value of 'this may benefit me now and I can forget it all immediately after graduation'. "So there are groups and there are drifters. And there is you, and me," he adds.

Damian has to work on recognising that teasing thing.
Jerel's pretty sure, from what Dick has been saying, that anyone else Dick would have invited would have been exactly that -- an ex doing him a favour. But not with Kory here. Kory is the reason Jerel is here, instead of someone else. So even before Jason's done talking, Jerel is shaking his head. "No. Never met before last week. I think he's just worried about me meeting his family so early," he adds, after a moment, flashing a bit of sympathy. "You're all kind of intimidating. He said he didn't want to scare me off." (Damian is having trouble reconciling that with Good-Father Bad-Mother.)
Yeah, Colin knows. He still can't explain it any better than he has before. He sees Damian's flaws, but, y'know, Damian's got a lot of strengths, too. And Colin likes all of him.

If that wasn't Dick on his a-game, Jerel is gonna need some warning whenever Dick puts his a-game on, okay?

Mitz smiles and goes to pour them some drinks. "You don't count," he tells Snooze. "Because you're new. People don't know you yet, you know? So you're still all--mysterious. And then there's me."

Uh, maybe don't? Because it's when he doesn't know that Colin's teasing that he says the nicest stuff.
"Okay," Jason says, changing his theory. He figures that Jerel must be sick, terminally sick. There's no way Dick would look like that otherwise. But even Jason doesn't have that little tact. "So, are you easily scared off?" (Damian, with your blacks and your whites.)
Damian doesn't understand that. And he does not think it will last in the form that it's in right now. But he's glad of how Colin feels. He doesn't want him to feel anything otherwise.

Flatterer, Dick says. He doesn't mean for it to come out low and flirty, but it totally does.

Snooze accepts the cup when Mitz hands it to him. "You keep saying you find me mysterious. Am I really?"

Damian thinks about this. He should probably also work on saying -- nice -- things at other times, too, should he not.
Jerel smiles again. "Not so far. You guys are intimidating, but I've met worse," he teases. Slept with worse, been threatened by worse, worked for worse. There's an edge to Jason, but it's a hidden one, at least at dinner. Other people don't bother hiding it. (It took enough effort to switch around Good-Mother Bad-Father, okay, he's still working on the grey thing.)
Colin's going to feel what he's going to feel and there's not much either of them can do to change it. He's happy it's worked out so well for both of them.

Seriously, Jerel insists. He lifts his arm off his eyes and props himself up on his elbow and grins at Dick. He's gotta prepare.

"I--" Mitz goes deep red. "I don't, do I? Uh. Well. Um. Sorry. I meant--I mean, well, yes. I do. But I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one. And also, yes? You are. No-one knows about you and you don't care about what everyone else is doing? You just do your thing. And. Yeah." He doesn't mention that there's a little bit of danger to how Snooze sometimes looks at people that helps the mysterious stranger persona that everyone has ascribed to Snooze.

Colin'd like that. But he kind of doesn't want Damian to worry too much about it. Colin already knows that Damian's nice.
Jason gives off a bark of laughter. "Oh, buddy," he says, shaking his head. "That's the funniest shit I've heard in a while."
Dick walks up to them, worried smile in place. "Jay? Are you seriously scaring off my date right now," he says tightly. Jason gives Dick an innocent look an a non-committal shrug. (he'll get there, he's surrounded by too many people in the grey not to)
Damian nods, and takes Colin's hand. It has worked out well.

Is that Jerel's way of saying they should probably do that again? Because, you know, Dick could live with that.

Snooze smiles into his cup, and then remembers how nervous Mitz is and directs it up at him, instead. "I had a lot of people pretending to be friendly to me for the first few days. I never really knew what to say to them when they asked me about myself, so I never really answered. Perhaps that was what started it."

Yes, but Damian is always being told he could be nicer. Colin is... he does things with Colin, first. Because he knows Colin won't react badly if he does something wrong.
Jerel swivels in his seat to reach out a hand to Dick, welcome him back. There was definitely a harsh edge in Jason's laugh; definitely a dark side to this family, he thinks. Dick (and Jerel) could use a little play-acting affection right now. "I'm not so easily scared," he says. "That's what we were talking about." (that, or he'll be the most ruthless Bat yet)
Colin beams, like he does any time Damian instigates the hand holding.

Just let Jerel brace himself, hang on one second. Jerel holds up a hand to Dick, then shakes it all out, shakes his whole body out, dramatically over-reacting, and then goes into a sort of seated fight stance. Okay. Ready.

Mitz doesn't think that's it. But he nods. "Maybe, yeah," he pours himself a drink and steps away from the table. He instinctively keeps an eye on Thaey, who is talking to someone else but still in the same spot he was moments before.

Damian always says that, that he does things wrong. But Colin's never really seen him get anything wrong, not really.
Dick takes Jerel's hand and, since Jason stole Dick's seat, sits on the other side of him. "You were talking about being scared off?"
"Talking about how jittery you are about him meeting us," Jason corrects. He grins. "Wonder why that would happen, Dickiebird. We're a delight." (Him and Tim are in the running for the most ruthless future bats, it is true)
Damian returns the smile, with less intensity on the outside. Even the smallest outward expression of happiness is kind of huge for Damian, though.

Dick laughs. Don't do that or Dick'll get the urge to tackle Jerel.

Snooze has noticed that Mitz likes to pay attention to people, and that he only rarely gets distracted when he's talking to somebody. That distraction almost always comes in the form of Mitz noticing Mouse has entered a room, or Mitz noticing someone he's wary of. Snooze looks for Mouse, and when he doesn't see her, he knows it must be the other thing.
He's got the bad bully narrowed down to a few dumb jock candidates, and all of them are here. "Tell me more about the decorations," he said, in an effort to get Mitz's attention back.

Damian often gets things wrong. People are very... complex. He assumes things that are wrong all the time. He just does not like to publicise his assumptions.
"Delightfully protective," Jerel puts in, squeezing Dick's hand. "Don't worry," he tells Dick. "I'm not so easily scared."
Colin appreciates every version of Damian's smile. Should they go to dinner? Colin kind of wishes Mr. Pennyworth had done burgers for the night, his burgers are awesome. But he gets that it's, like, fancy food.

And then they'd be rolling around in the grass like savages, can't have that!
