"Uh?" Mitz can't really get his head around that at all. What he wants is friends and he has those in Snooze and Mouse, all of a sudden. But even Mitz knows it's not cool to say that out loud, /and/ that has nothing to do with his future.

He should have a sit down and talk with Jason some day. Just, y'know, when they're in the Manor some day, a lazy Sunday afternoon perhaps, and Dick isn't around. Jason sits down beside Jerel and starts talking shop completely unannounced.
he's a Big Strong Injured Man.

Dick nods. Alright. So long as Jerel's sure he's okay. It's good that his brother has people and everything. And Jerel's a pretty popular guy, so it's not like he's without friends or anything. Dick was just...checking. (Dick wouldn't be rude if he can help it, but he certainly won't give her much time.)

Snooze eats another spoonful of ice cream, waiting patiently. When Mitz doesn't go on, he tilts his head. "Do you have hobbies?"

Jerel could probably be a useful resource for Jason. And Jerel'd appreciate having, y'know, a non-judgey friend.
that's fairly accurate

Jerel smiles a little. Don't worry, they're not gonna go serial killer. And if they do, they'll both be really good at covering it up, psychologically. He shakes his head, grinning at his pie. (Yeah, she isn't gonna be one of those exasperating TV sitcom mother-in-laws. She's more like a mother-in-law from a crime procedural.)

Mitz looks confused, because how could that matter? "I sometimes make things? Like, take things about and make new things. Sometimes it doesn't work," he adds, because he doesn't like talking as though mistakes don't happen. They do. A lot. "And mostly I just make messes. ...I fix things, too? Around the house, I mean."

Jerel isn't a resource, he's Dick's boyfriend. That means he's not a resource until he announces that he wants to have his brain picked. And, hey. No judgement. Jason's not in the position to judge anyone. Unless they're murderers or drug dealers.

Well, that's definitely something reassuring to tell the guy who wants to be a cop when he grows up, Dick teases. (A crime procedural or a lawyer show like Damages or the Good Wife)

Snooze looks interested. "I make so many messes as well. It sounds like you could be an engineer if you wanted. Fix what kind of things?"

Jerel never killed anyone and he never dealt drugs. He took them a couple of times, but mostly they made the job harder, so.

Jerel laughs. He didn't think of that. Whoops. He promises Dick won't have to keep an eye on any hospital he works at. If Jerel's going to kill someone, he'll go straight for the source of his misery first. (Yeah but her character in Good Wife is half decent so probably not that one.)

"Mother's got me on track for mech eng in MIT by the time I'm 16," Mitz nods. "That's all I know about it. She says that a lot to people. And in papers she writes. And, and, I don't know? Like...anything. Computers, washing machines, cars. I don't mind. Why? Is something broken here? Don't call anyone, I'll do it for you."

Huh, yeah, he probably didn't do speed, then. That always helps until the comedown. Unless it's changed now. Last time Jason took that he was like 14 or some shit, so he has no idea how badly it's mutated. Bruce probably does.

Dick'll try to look the other way if that particular murder happens, now that he's heard what could be nearly counted as a confession. (Damages it is!)

Snooze shakes his head. "No, nothing is broken at the moment. But that is very useful," he adds, impressed. "If something is ever broken, I will let you know. And cook you something to thank you."

Mostly it made Jerel really stupid? Like, sure, everything seemed fun, but he went all out of control. All his skills just went out the window and he lost track of time. He got scammed so often when he wasn't thinking straight.

Jerel snickers again. It's only a confession if it happens. Jerel's plans mostly do not include his mother after he's able to financially support himself.

Mitz smiles, glad to be back on the familiar ground of offering to fix things for people. "No, no, that's okay, you don't have to. I just wanna, uh, help. I guess," he shrugs, unsure. "I just like helping out."

Yeah, either you're broke and dumb on drugs or you're successful and--well, still kinda dumb, without drugs. That's basically the two categories of the working type. Jason was mostly the second. He bought a lot of the stuff for other people, though. Which made him a different kind of scum. Good to hear Jerel kept his nose relatively clean.

Dick digs into his pie again for a short time, wondering if he should really ask his next question. But what the hell. "Will she let you?"

Snooze nudges him. "And you do not like being fed?"

Jerel laughs. Still kind of dumb, but without drugs. Yeah, that sounds accurate, especially considering how Jerel ended up. Jerel always made it clear that he didn't have the budget to provide a party. If someone wanted to party, they brought their own stuff. Other people, drugs, toys, whatever.

Jerel considers it for a moment, sucking on his spoon. Then he shrugs. "She won't have much of a choice."

Mitz opens and closes his mouth a few times, unable to come up with a suitably good answer for that. "Uh, well," he says eventually. "...good point?"

Jason nudges Jerel with his elbow. You high class bastard. 'Cashmere Escorts'. Fuck. Jason starts barking out his laughter, shoulders shaking.

Dick doesn't look happy about that at all. "What a waste," he mutters. "Like, why throw away a meaningful relationship with your own kids?" He looks kind of sick.

Snooze grins at him and eats another mouthful of ice cream. It's starting to go slushy now. "I thought so. I was wondering if I might have to break something in order to get you to come over and fix it and eat."

Jerel laughs along with him. Hey, you want the big bucks, you gotta talk about antlers, right? You want the expensive crowds, you gotta trigger expensive thoughts.

Jerel's mouth twists. "I guess it depends on what you think a meaningful relationship is."

Mitz laughs and rubs his arm nervously. "No, no, no," he shakes his head. "You don't have to do anything like that. You could, if you wanted, but you don't have to. I mean. I'll eat anything, I just meant that you don't have to pay me in food."

Jason's just pissed he hadn't thought of that. But no-one really had rich thoughts on his beat.

Dick nearly tells the truth, which is that he thinks just having a mom would be meaningful enough. But that's not fair. Jerel has a mother and she's neglecting him, or at least he feels neglected. Dick doesn't know the whole story, obviously. "I'm sorry," he says instead, but he means it. He's sorry that Jerel has to go through something just as bad as being without a parent.

"You will eat anything?" Snooze props his chin on his hand. "Interesting. I usually have to eat my own experiments in order to not waste food, but that is a poor sample of whether something actually tastes good. Could I perhaps persuade you to help with that?"

Jerel got so lucky. He basically got scouted. He was working clubs and hotel bars, and this guy asked him to be eye candy at a couple of expensive parties, and from there, he met a couple of escort madams who'd just got run out of New York and were looking to get started in Gotham. Really lucky. Things could've gone a lot differently.

"Thanks, man," Jerel says. He can hear how much Dick means it. Which, Dick is an orphan, of course he'd value family really high up there. Jerel finishes off his pie.

"Haha, yeah," Mitz rubs the back of his neck. "Jerel used to get kinda mad when I would say no to food when I was a kid? So I guess I eat everything now. But I like food, so. I mean. Of course I like food, duh." He shakes his head, upset at himself for being an idiot. "...yeah. I mean, sure, yes. I'll help with whatever."

Sounds like it, sure. But everyone's got their origin story. What's really important is what you do now.

Dick understands that they're probably done with the serious family talk now, but he'll probably bring it up again some other time if Jerel will let him. "You want another coffee?"

"Excellent." Snooze is always happy to have a new test subject. "And it turned out well for you this time. Who would have thought cheese ice cream could be good?"

Jason's doing good work as Red Hood. Guardian of the underworld, Jerel smiles crookedly. Protecting those no one else will.

Jerel laughs. "Yeah, okay. I can handle that, since I got the first one."

"I think maybe you're just amazing, Snooze," Mitz says casually, honestly.

Gee, sugar. Thanks. Jason snorts. He does what he can and that's not enough and they both know it. But thanks.

Dick blows a raspberry on his way out of the booth and towards the counter, then comes back with two coffees and the rest of the apple pie that was on display. "I figured there could be more pie back at your grandparents' house," Dick shrugs.

Snooze looks at him, surprised and speechless, for a moment. Then he melts into a smile and nudges Mitz. "Thank you."

Hey, Jerel points out, save even one life and it's gonna have a knock-on effect. It's good. Trust him.

Jerel laughs. "Oh my god. You say it like you didn't just want to out-do me," he teases.

Mitz's answering smile is a little bashful. He shrugs in a very 'no problem' kind of way.

Jason grunts. Yeah, he said thanks. He's not looking for an ego stroke. He's just sayin', yeah? Buuuuuuut, Jason suddenly smiles mischieviously. He guesses Jerel is the expert in hero types now, huh? Bagged himself the golden boy.

Dick waggles his eyebrows and looks /so/ pleased with himself. "You took away my coffee buying," he says in explanation.

Snooze pushes the ice cream container towards Mitz, because he says thanks best with food. "Would you like any more before it melts too much?"

Jerel smirks. Well, he wouldn't say he's an /expert/, but he's definitely gotten a good, up-close look at a hero. Really in-depth, you know. Intimate. Jerel's not sure if he bagged Dick or if Dick bagged him, though.

"So you bought the whole rest of the pie." Jerel is so freaking tickled. "Is it still generosity if it's a competition? Well. Huh. Yeah, I guess it still is, sure."

"Maybe a little," Mitz says, going for it. The ice cream really is amazing, and it confuses Mitz. Usually he's only confused by what people do to him, and that's in a bad way. He's confused in a good way. It's nice. Snooze is confusing in a good way.

Call it a mutual bagging, hotshot.

"It's for you!" Dick laughs. "Well, hey, and your brother and his boyfriend. If you wanna share."

Snooze grins. He is always so /pleased/ when people want more of his food. "Have as much as you like. It refreezes quite well."

Jerel snorts. That sounds like a sex act.

Jerel looks longing. "Oh, man, I have to share? But I just love pie so much. I dunno if I can bring myself to share."

Mitz takes another spoonful. He likes ice-cream when it's more cream than ice. "Nuh-uh," he says, mouth full of cream. "I won't eat the last of it, anyway. I'm done. I'm done. Thank you."

Who's saying it isn't? Jason grins suggestively.

"Even if I look, like, really cute later on and ask for a slice?" Dick decides it's time to try flirting again.

"My pleasure," Snooze says, honest. He sweeps the last few mouthfuls of ice cream away into the freezer, and when he comes back, he passes his hand along Mitz's lower back.

Jerel laughs again. If it is what it sounds like, it doesn't sound /really/ sexy, Jerel's gotta say.

Jerel hums, sipping his coffee to give himself time to reply. "How cute is really cute?"

Mitz's heart promptly takes up residence in his throat, and loudly. He's sure Snooze can hear his heart beating. He's almost sure /Romana/ can hear it from where she's sitting in the living room. "Um," he says, unsure of what to say or do or think anymore with that ghost of Snooze's hand on him.

As far as Jason's concerned, most sex acts don't sound all that sexy. Just, y'know, filthy.

Dick laughs, then shrugs with a smile still on his face. "I can't just turn it on whenever I feel like just to find out how cute 'really cute' is, Stillhaven," Dick admonishes happily. "But if it happens...?"

Snooze sits next to Mitz again and smiles, completely unaware of Mitz's reaction to the touch, only pleased with himself for pulling off the touch so smoothly, to his eyes. "So is this dinner tonight?"

Yeah, the names aren't that crash hot. But it's the feeling that goes along with the description that's supposed to be the sexy part, and 'mutual bagging' sounds too frat boy to be really sexy.

Jerel grins over the rim of his cup. "Well, Grayson, we'll have to wait and see. Might be that it's cute enough for pie."

"Tomorrow night," Mitz corrects quickly. He laughs a little. "I wouldn't, uh, y'know, spring this on you for tonight. Gotta give you some warning. I'm not that horrible."

Now, c'mon, don't go ruining Jason's image of Jerel and Dick's relationship, which is just them looking meaningfully into each other's eyes and whispering 'bro'.

Dick bites his lip. "Do I get a consolation prize if it's not pie worthy? I'll be devastated."

Snooze is amused by that. He really doesn't understand how horrible it might be. He's had some horrible dinners in his life and some horrible parents, but I doubt he's ever met someone quite like Helen. "Would you like me to bring anything?"

Jerel snickers. That's not totally inaccurate.

"If there's levels of cute, it could warrant maybe a bite of pie. Or a glass of milk that would go really well with the pie if you got any pie," Jerel says. He's kind of transfixed by Dick's lip, whoops.

Mitz shrugs, scratching his arm nervously. "Do people bring things? What kind of things would you bring? Yourself, bring yourself. And a buttload of forgiveness. And always remember that this is Jerel's fault."

Jason snaps his fingers. He knew it. His deductions are always pretty fucking perfect.

"Is there a bartering system? Say, if I wanted something that was of equal value to a bite of pie?" Dick's yelling at himself but can't stop himself. Stop trying to trick the poor guy into agreeing to kiss you, the nice part of Dick says. Shut up, the lonely part of Dick snaps back.

That makes Snooze laugh. "I meant food, or a bottle of wine, or something. But those things, I can bring, certainly."

Hey, he said 'not totally inaccurate', not 'perfect'. There's eye-looking, and maybe little names, /and/ the mutual bagging thing, and some other stuff. Jerel's just so eloquent right now.

Jerel grins. He's not completely unaware of Dick's inner turmoil -- Dick has a strange look underneath the teasing grin, like he's almost upset. But he wants to cheer Dick up. "So you want to buy a bite of pie but with something like, what, cleaning up the dishes?"

"Oh," Mitz says, then thinks. "I don't know? Not wine. Alcohol is something that Mother drinks, but she doesn't appreciate the thought of other people expecting her to drink. And my dad's never drank, so. Your food's amazing, though."

Jason huffs a laugh. Cute. He means, obviously it goes without saying that if Jerel breaks Dickie's heart then Jason's going to hunt him down like a rabid dog. Right? (Keep in mind that Jason is fucking two of Dick's exes in this 'verse)

Dick clicks his tongue. "Reverse that," he says, making a flipping motion with his hand. "Say if I had already earned that bite of pie, but wanted something of equal value?"

"That seems -- complicated. The thing with your mother. I could bring dessert?" Snooze suggests.

One hundred percent, yeah. Considering Jerel knows about Dick and Jason's night jobs, yeah, he's very well aware of that. (/at least/ two)

Jerel props his chin on his hand. "Huh. So you want something instead of pie? You're giving up the pie in favour of something else?"

"Sure!" Mitz brightens and very naturally, almost automatically, ignores what Snooze said about Mother. "Are you going to make the cheese ice-cream? Maybe don't tell them that it's cheese."

No, no, the night job thing? That's a separate threat and one that big daddy Wayne will administer. (Just two! Probably just two.)

Dick bites his lip again because Jerel's the one being cute and that wasn't part of the plan /at all/. "That's the premise, yeah."

"I could certainly make more," Snooze agrees, grinning. "Then you could have a whole bowl, instead of digging a spoon into the container."

Jerel's fairly sure he already came in Jerel's hospital window and loomed threateningly. Will there be words to go along with that threat? Because words seem mostly unnecessary. (Probably.)

Jerel's stomach is all tight like he gets when he knows a girl wants to kiss him and he's working out the best way to do it, or he's trying to figure out if /she's/ working out the best way to do it. It's a heady feeling. "So -- huh. You're willing to give up pie. So that must be a pretty big thing you want to barter for."

Mitz ducks his head and laughs quietly. "'S okay if you just bring the container, I wouldn't mind."

Oh, he's already done that. Cool. Everything's taken care of, then. But, to answer Jerel's question, there won't be words to go with that. He doesn't really need them. Ever. (Prrrrrrobably.)

"I think I'd probably trade a whole slice for what I have in mind, yeah," Dick smiles lopsidedly.

Snooze grins. "We can hole up in your room and eat it ourselves after dinner if you do not want to share."

No, yeah, Jerel got the message pretty clearly. But... Jerel shrugs a little. Dick's kind of worth the words, Jerel thinks.

Jerel doesn't quite blush, but he gets a little coy. "So what are you going to do to earn the slice? Do you think you've earned it yet?"

Mitz giggles, but shakes his head. "No, uh. No. If Jerel found out then my life wouldn't be worth living."

Jason stills and doesn't speak for a moment, then sniffs and relaxes into his usual cocky apathy. Eh. You'll get used to the old man.

"Not by half, gorgeous," Dick says honestly. "But I'll get there. Just...feeling out the rules. That's all."

Snooze laughs, too. "Would he tease you about being alone in your room with someone, or would he be upset about not getting any ice cream?"

Yeah, that's what Dick says. He seems so different from the dinner party. That was interesting.

"And... if there are no exact rules?"

"Both, plus anything else I do along the way," Mitz snorts a little. "Should probably just share."

That dinner party wasn't anything like B at all. Everyone else, sure. Tim-Tim is that much of a know-it-all fuckhead, Damian is that entitled, Dick's that sticky sweet. But Bruce isn't anything like that. So, yeah. You'll get used to him.

"I can think on my feet," Dick promises and it should be innocent, but it isn't.

"Do you like having a brother?" Snooze is honestly curious. Obviously he was an only child -- as far as he knows -- and though he's had brief foster brothers and sisters, none have lasted long and none have kept in touch.

Yeah, Jerel's got that this is kind of a close family. It's nice. Everyone concerned about each other. It's really nice. Jerel's gotta bring his own brother around soon.

Jerel bites his lip and grins at the same time, a crooked grin. "Something I should keep in mind?"

Mitz shrugs. "I like it," he admits quietly. "But I don't think Jerel likes having a brother much at all."

Jason raises his eyebrow. Word of advice? Run that by the big guy before that happens. More civilians might not make him happy.

"If you keep smiling like /that/," Dick says, showing his hand. "Definitely."

Snooze twists his mouth. "That is unfortunate," he says. "Like when you have a crush on someone and they do not like you in the same way." He's fairly sure he can relate to that one right now.

No problem. But, really, Jerel's the one with the shady past. Mitz is Mr. Shy University. There shouldn't be any problems. If Jerel's okay, Mitz has gotta be okay.

Jerel's smile widens, his teeth still dug in, and then he ducks his head and puts his coffee cup down. "So -- this is a date, right."

"No, that feels different," Mitz says without thinking. He's in correction mode. "Other people have no obligation to like you just because you like them, which sucks but that's fine, but family is supposed to..." Mitz frowns, his brain finally kicking in and suddenly remembering who he's talking to. He shakes his head. "Doesn't matter."

It's not about the past anyone has. It's about how freaking obvious everything is when you actually sit down and talk to all of them for two freaking seconds.

Dick's breath sticks in his throat. That's something he really didn't want to approach just yet, but oh well. "It is if /you/ say it is," Dick says, still smiling. "But if you say it isn't, we're friends and...I'll think of something else that's worth some pie."

Snooze feels a surge of sympathy and he takes Mitz's hand. "Family is supposed to be on your side," he agrees, quietly.

Oh. Uh. Well, you know how Jerel is pretty clever? Mitz is... way, way beyond that.

Jerel can't tell if Dick's smile is strained or forced. He rolls one shoulder like a nervous habit, tapping his coffee mug. "You've been... incredible this weekend," he admits. "I'd like this to be a date. But I just don't want to -- hurt you? -- if I figure out I'm not attracted to guys."

Mitz smiles, more out of embarrassment than anything else. He shouldn't have said anything. "Yeah," he says through a wince that the smile quickly turns into. "Something like that."

Then no. That's not Jason's decree, by the way, that's just a guess at what the big guy will say.

Dick thought that maybe when that's said out loud properly that it'd hurt more, but it doesn't. It's like confirmation or closure or something similar. It gets everything out in the open. Dick's used to lies, but he prefers truth. "I won't be hurt," he promises. "I'll be...disappointed, sure, but there won't be anything either of us can do about it. So it'll be fine. Don't go saying this is a date just to spare my feelings. That's not fair to you."

"I think I understand that sentiment better than most," Snooze says. "It is... good to have someone else understand." Even if he does wish Mitz didn't have to understand. Snooze wouldn't wish this feeling on anyone.

Jerel's honestly disappointed. He's not going to cut his own little brother out of his life, he says. It was hard enough to convince Mitz to trust him again after the debacle of high school. He'll have to work something out.

"It's not to spare your feelings." Jerel looks up from his mug and tries to look like he means it, because he does. "I said -- I do want this to be a date. Dating is meant to be the thing to figure out if you do like someone, right?"

"People should be nicer to you," Mitz says quietly, then shakes himself out and pushes a smile. "Okay, so, maybe we should stop talking about this? Just. Stop, y'know?"

No-one said anything about not talking to his family or whatever. But bringing his little brother over to meet all of them? Not going to happen. Dots are too easily connected. Jason's honestly surprised that Dick's still allowed to turn up after bringing Jerel in. He knew Jerel from night work, for fuck's sake. That boy is pretty, but not too smart.

"Right," Dick agrees with a smile. "But, not to put a downer on anything, I think the date is nearly over. We've eaten our pie. We've both paid for things. I guess once our coffee is done, we should get going?"
