Curious Dinner Conversations [Attn: Orion, Samandriel]

Date: TBD, set after Tracking Down A Huntress

An invitation had been given, and at 5:30 on the dot there would be a quick 'shave-and-a-haircut' knock on the door of Orion and Samandriel's apartment. Behind said door was a relatively casually dressed Leanhaun, still cutting a fine figure in jeans, a black t-shirt and a denim jacket with the hints of a thin gold chain around his neck, the pendant hanging from it tucked under his shirt for the time being. In one hand was a small wooden box, about three inches on each side, containing a gift for the hosts as it was his first time at the apartment, while the bottle of wine that the Fiona had requested was in the other hand.

While none of it showed outwardly as he waited patiently for a response to the knock, the sidhe would be remiss if he pretended he wasn't nervous about the re-introduction that was to come. He and Orion had gotten onto the same page with each other rather smoothly the first time, but with what had occurred under the Duchess' command he couldn't help but worry that the sorcerer would rightly blame him for what had happened and show no interest in reforging that connection once again. Finding that kind of a kindred soul was a rarity, especially for a man such as himself, and losing that would be a heavy blow indeed.

When Sam told him about the dinner, the thought had occurred to him to find a reason to work late that night. Of course, because the thought occurred to Jack and not Incubus, and Incubus happened to like wining and dining, the thought was promptly ignored. Not that the imp thought Jack had the cajones to skip out on a dinner party Sam scheduled with someone that had apparently been his friend at one point in time. Not that Jack made many, or really any, friends. Seriously, Incubus could count on one of his hands how many people Jack considered a friend on some level. Actually...make that two now. Either way, that he had told an Other that he was an Awakened was even more surprising. Whoever this was wasn't merely the bar owner Orion knew him to be, and that made Incubus very curious about him and all the more reason to want to show up for the dinner party and meet this individual.

Oh, and of course, it made him want to be the one to open the door.

A few moments after the door was knocked on, it was opened and before Jeremiah was the man who's opinion he was worried about. Dressed in a nice dark sweater and cream slacks with hair combed back. A change from his normal dress shirt and suit attire. At first he didn't smile, nor did he look upset. More curious than anything. Giving Jeremiah a once over and sizing him up. Then a small smirk creased his lips and the door opened fully to allow him in. "Hey. Been a while. How's the club?"

Apparently, even though Orion hadn't been to the bar since the passing of forbidden information, it wasn't because he was upset. It also wasn't because he returned to old habits because the banality that was once thick on the man had actually lessened since they last met.

She was in the kitchen preparing dinner and let Ryan get the door so that he could have a little bit of time to reacquaint himself with the sidhe.

With his eyes opened as they were the 'first' look that Orion got of Jeremiah was a bit of an eyeful, pointed ears paired with eyes so dark a green they appeared black and a mien infused with shadow in all the right ways, both alluring and a little bit intimidating at the same time. Those dark eyes took Orion's own relaxed attire in before the smile offered was returned, glad to see that there was no apparent animosity at his presence. "That it has. Things at the club has been going well, all told. Added a few new performers to the roster, and they've been doing well."

He gave the mage a polite nod as he came inside the apartment, looking around to get a feel for the place and giving Samandriel a quick nod before looking back to Orion. "Things going smoothly on your end, I hope?"

Even with the smirk, the curious look lingered. Never having seen the other man in this fashion before. Well, at least that he could remember. That thought that he carefully kept away from his expression. However the attractiveness of the man was not lost on Incubus as it would have been on Jack.

From the entrance was a short hallway that gave way first on the right to the kitchen with an island then beyond that to a large living room with an amazing view of the water and closed glass doors leading to the outdoor balcony. One more than likely much like the fae’s own, if not at a slightly lower elevation. Beyond the kitchen was a dining table set for dinner. The decor was probably not what Jeremiah might have expected of the man who had been on the heavier side of stagnant. The place felt like a home warm with its furniture and decor.

While Jeremiah looked around, Orion glanced outside before closing the door and softly locking it. Stepping inside and holding his hand out to offer to take something off the other’s hands. “Smooth as could be expected.”

"Glad to hear it." Jeremiah nodded with a small smile, offering Orion the wooden box. When opened, the crystal salt shaker within was wrapped in red and silver silk, befitting the allegiance of the mistress of the house.

"Apologies for not coming by to see you sooner. I have been by a few times to help Samandriel get up to speed on some things, but I suppose that you've been at work." There were other things he wanted to apologize for as well, of course, but those would be best to handle after the meal; no need to potentially make things awkward beforehand.

Not that they weren't erring towards awkward now, mind...he couldn't even recall the last time he had felt this bloody tongue-tied.

It probably wasn't helping that Orion was letting Jeremiah do the talking. Trying to gauge from what he could get from the man why he would have told him what he was. Sure the man was friendly and Orion had no complaints. The few times he'd visited the bar that he recollected the Fae had been pleasant enough to talk to. If it weren't for Sam, he would still think the Fae thought he was an opportunistic mortal. To that, he probably didn't tell him he was with the FBI since that wasn't relevant to being Awakened. Incubus checked with the Triune on that one and they came to the same conclusion. Work either meant opportunities or his awakened life.

The salt shaker was looked at for a moment as memory from years past was tickled. Something about salt and hospitality,...he still didn't get it. "You could say that."

Looking up from the box he look to Jeremiah, then the living room, then back. "Sam's still finishing up. Go ahead and have a seat. Want a drink?"

"Won't say no." Jeremiah smirked a touch. "Still favoring the whiskey or have you branched out a bit?"

He paused, having to think a moment about whether the other man would have remembered that conversation, then shook his head quietly. "Sorry...not sure if you recall that or not."

He looked up to Orion, watching him curiously. "What did she tell you about me, out of curiosity? May be a good place to start."

"We keep a full cabinet. Have been on a bit of a bourbon kick recently." Apparently leaning to the corn side of the amber malted beverage was enough to notate. Of course, the fae bartender would know to connoisseurs it was enough of a distinction to spell the word differently, adding a distinctive 'e' to the Irish word. Which, of course, meant the answer to his question was ultimately a resounding 'yes', if enough of a change to favor Incubus's pallet.

The slight tilt of the head and scrunch of the brow to Jeremiah's query on recollection was probably enough of an indicator that he had no clue what the other was talking about. Being the topic of banality and all the help the other had provided him with was no longer present. Although a memory of a night that was significant for other reasons popped into his head that partially filled in the blank. "At the Masquerade club. Before we left you mentioned you were going to setup a tasting board." Which, to his recollection, wasn't a lie at the time. If he actually planned on drinking a number of drinks the other offered him with tastes different enough he couldn't tell proper from poison, it was a mark in the other's favor in his mind at least. That was a memory he was going to have to explore more for context on how he had felt about Jeremiah.

At the final question, the confused expression altered. The scrunched brow being replaced by a smirk, though his eyes betrayed the cautious curiosity. "That we are friends. Friendly enough I told you about my other 'job'. Since Sam is the only other person I've told out of want rather than necessity, I'm curious how I went about telling you."
