    @Takashi "Shiro" Shirogane

    He had not known what he'd expected the previous night when he had messaged Shiro, Jason had half expected the man to blank his texts, not because either of them had done anything wrong per say but more because it had been so long he didn't know if the older man would remember who he was. But he'd got a response, a fairly positive response and he'd arranged to get coffee with the man whom he'd last seen in depressed, vegetative state and as he wandered down the street to said coffee shop he wondered what he was going to get this time but he felt that since the guy had not killed himself that was likely a good sign. Jason wished his girlfriend could of come to this meeting with him but he'd decided it would probably be kinder to Shiro for it to just be him, plus there was the sunlight thing but he totally intended to make this up to Tanaquil later, do something she would enjoy.

    For now he was ignoring the way some girl was eyeing him from across the street wondering why she was even looking at him all he was wearing was a dark blue t-shirt with the words 'Mic-drop' in bug white letters covered by his brown leather jacket which hid all kinds of gadgets and dark pants, a pair of sunglasses hiding his ice blue eyes. He reached the coffee shop quickly, heading to the counter he ordered the strongest, darkest coffee he could and a chocolate chip muffin before moving to sit at a table on their little balcony facing the ocean, dropping Shiro a text to tell him where he was sat. Idly he gazed out at the ocean, though he'd already instinctively scouted all the best defensive positions and exits from his current location.

    He also instinctively knew when the waiter approached with his order, thanking the guy as it was put before him Jason tried to make himself relax, wondering what his baby brother was up to, in that moment he debated dropping the kid a text to see if he wanted to hang out later when he instinctively knew someone else was approaching him. Casually he glanced sideways at the doors to see a rather familiar scarred face and tuft of white hair, raising an idle hand he waved at Shiro in a lazy fashion before looking down at his order, the coffee looked so very black he wondered how many shots they'd put in to get it so dark. But then he'd requested the strongest, blackest, black coffee that they could make and he supposed they'd managed to deliver with this concoction before him.

    Shiro had honestly been wondering how the other had been doing all this time. There were little things that reminded him of Jason, sometimes from Keith and his temperament to something as simple as the colour red catching his attention from the corner of his eye. So when he'd received the invitation he'd been all too happy to agree to meet the younger man, supposing it would do himself some good to play catch up with someone out of his own paladin family. Of course he wondered what Jason was even doing here in Cascade Bay, unknowing of anything that had been happening with him for the most part and just kept the younger in his well wishes.

    As he approached the cafe, the paladin glanced at himself in the glass wall of the cafe. It was odd seeing himself so causally dressed, wondering if he'd ever really get used to it. Probably not. Instead he pushed past the thoughts and headed inside the little cafe, smiling at the barista that welcomed him before he lifted a finger and asked for his usual, the man having visited the place so often they knew what he wanted before he even had to ask. With that sorted he glanced around, spotting someone waving at him and making him smile as he lifted his own hand in acknowledgement, making his way over.

    "Long time no see." The paladin nodded his head to the other man, holding out his hand when in reach to give it a small shake. Typical Shiro, being formal before comfortable no matter what, though to be fair in this instance it had been a long time since he'd seen the other man. When done, he took a seat opposite Jason and shrugged off his leather jacket, letting it rest over the back of his chair before he offered a smile at the younger man. It was tinged with a certain fatigue that always seemed to linger around Shiro no matter what, but it was definitely Shiro.
    "How've you been? How come you're in CB now?" He asked, glancing up when his drink was brought over before thanking the barista, nodding a little to him before they were left alone once more, looking expectantly over at Jason.

    He took a sip of his blackest, of blacks coffee before rising to his feet as Shiro approached putting the coffee back on the table one handed before taking Shiro's offered hand with an idle smile. At Shiro's words he spoke up"I know right, it has been awhile!" He shifted back to sitting in his seat as the older man made himself comfortable, Jason's ice, blue eyes watched attentively. He was watching for details his friend wore openly as well as what he tried to hide, the main big thing he pigged up on was the general exhaustion the other man had about him though Jason sensed this exhaustion was not the same s before. The other man did not hold an aura of dark depression like before, this exhaustion he had was likely more to do with reasons close to why Jason used to not sleep, part of the reason he still did not sleep, the nightmares brought on by trauma.

    As Shiro spoke again Jason dropped his gaze to his drink, trying to ignore his urge to watch the approaching waiter, there was no threat there and yet his instincts told him to watch He let the other get his drink, sipping at his own and eyeing his muffin until the waiter was gone. Then his drink was back on the table and his ice, blue gaze went to Shiro's eyes as he responded casually"Oh I've been ok generally, of course there have been the odd bumps here and there but life has overall been good..." He shifted to lean back in the chair before saying"CB? Is that what all the cool people call this place these days?" His voice held an idle, teasing lilt to it as he went on"Would you believe me if I told you I was currently on brotherly duties? I had to come check on a brother of mine, show him I'm still alive make sure he's still alive and make him do something fun, that kind of thing."

    He was doing the unblinking stare thing that he'd been taught as a child, the scary scrutinising like your not a human with your eyes. So he forced himself to drop his gaze to his muffin as he began unwrapping it, making himself blink as he did so before his gaze returned to Shiro's face as the easy smile he'd worn moments before faded slightly as he asked"What about you? Last time I saw you I was worried you were going to do something dumb but your still here and you seem different... Like better different... So I am going to assume things are better? Are things better?" Even as he asked he silently added within his head Would you tell me if they weren't? His ice, blue eyes were watching Shiro closely again following his question and his thought made him wonder if he'd really made wise choices here.
