He'd had the date marked in his diary, a battered leather thing that he kept in his satchel. Saturday the 27th had 'shopping' marked in a small, neat hand for as a catch-all for preparations, and so Remus had gone out to markets and wandered London and again found it a far more bustling, alive and angry city than he remembered. For that night he had simply written 'attempting to have a life!!!' and underlined it several times.

Because he was.

It had been a hard stretch, recovering from his transformation the previous week: he still felt tired a lot of the time, and his strength came and went in unpredictable surges, but he could usually summon what he needed through simple, stubborn strength of will and deal with the exhaustion later. That had always been his habit: to deal with it later. The night found him preparing dinner in the kitchen of his large apartment, all cold white walls and bland beige carpet and modern black leather couches, the better to show off the obscenely large television that he didn't watch that much and the even larger windows that opened out to the city, which he did. London looked gorgeous at night, free of the cool grey of winter wear to take on light and colour.

And with the sauce simmering and the pasta ready to go, Remus enjoyed a glass of water and waited for Hex to arrive and use the intercom thing downstairs so he could buzz him up.

Hex had put an alert in his mobile so he wouldn't forget and arrived promptly on time. THe building was quite posh and he smiled as he hit the buzzer to be let in. He had a box of pastries for dessert in lieu of wine since he was dry- sober for years now.

Hex smiled after the kiss and licked his lip where the tingle of it remained. When Remus took the box and headed for the kitchen he followed right along, appreciating the shape of the man's arse beneath the floral ties of his apron.

"It's alright," he said. "Food smells good. What are we having?"

It was a simple question, but the way his eyes raked over Remus's body it was clear he didn't care much about what they were eating.

"I would," Hex nodded and moved closer, waiting for a spoonful for himself. He was close enough to touch and so he naturally laid his hand on the small of Remus's back.

It burned his tongue a little and Hex inhaled to help cool it down. It was really quite good and he smiled and nodded.

"Delicious," he said. "Can't wait to eat. That box I brought is some pastries for dessert...and some extra so you can have treats tomorrow."

Hex chuckled at that and gave a nod. He wandered away to the table to take a seat.

"Sometimes it's just as well to eat dessert first," he said merrily. He felt light and at ease, completely comfortable with Remus. It was a lovely feeling.

"That's alright, Remus. Not everyone's meant for the gym," he said gently, concerned the man might have poor body image issues. He'd brought it up before, and now again. Hex wondered if he was just being self-depreciating or if there was some real deep seated issue there.

"You could, if that sort of thing appeals. I work out every day so there's plenty of opportunity. You can come and join Bobby and me and I promise we won't make you work," Hex chuckled.

"Well that's a bit creepy," Hex chuckled nervously. "Yeah, Bobby Drake. He needs physio and we're working out together to keep him fit."

"Kind of you," Hex said pleasantly, but knowing what he knew of Danny's life he had grown much more suspicious of random encounters that really weren't random at all. Since Danny had moved in Hex was aware of being followed twice and he had simply accepted that whoever it was, whatever Spooks, they had power beyond what Hex could fathom.

And yes, it made him suspicious. Made him wonder if maybe there was more to Remus than he was letting on. Bobby might be a soft way in, a casual mention, a funny story in a year about how small the world was. But London was vast and finding a crippled American among the mess and thinking that might be the one Bobby Hex would go to the gym with (on crutches?) Well, his guard went up and he couldn't help it.

"Dinner's delicious," he said, changing the subject to something that wouldn't start an argument (at best) and make him have to flee (at worst). "You're a brilliant cook. Next time you'll have to let me cook for you."

"I did. When I was home with me nan I cooked simple things. Things she liked. And then I joined the army and I was a medic and we had a lot of down time so I volunteered for KP duty and I learned to cook in quantity. When I got home I just kind of started cooking to please meself. I watched a lot of cooking programmes and I picked a lot of things up on YouTube. Now there's this great Facebook page called Tasty and I love trying the things they have/ Well, some of them. They do a lot of fried things stuffed with cheese. I skip those," he said, much more comfortable talking about food than worrying that Remus might be a Spook.

"I could probably pull ten together. Work people, mostly, and I'm not sure how any of me fellow nurses would get on with me filming crew," he chuckled. "I might be able to scrape together six not involved in any of that. But, well, I have friends who aren't fond of me other friends so it would be a bit of politics to invite just the right blend without making anyone else angry," he mused as he ate another bit.

"Oh, I have a show on YouTube. Getting to be quite popular. Hex Education, where I teach people the basics of BDSM and we showcase toys and props. Proper ways to do restraints. And things like how to earn obedience rather than demand. it. We talk about being safe, sane, and consensual. We have a lot of fun, a few laughs. It's light and easy, rather than being sexy or all learning. You should check it out," he said. He was quite confident in himself and very proud of his show and it was clear just watching him talk about it.

"I think that could work out. How into it are you? Beginner level?" he asked. He got so many messages from people who asked for hands on instruction, and most of them were from people looking to dip a toe into the scene.
