"And mine along with it." Like he needs anymore excitement in his life.

He begins to walk down the hall towards the Council Rooms, trusting Anakin to fall into step with him.

"Well...naturally. It would hardly be fair for me to get all of the excitement and leave you out of it, Master."

Anakin does, of course, fall into step with Obi-Wan with the easy familiarity of over ten years of walking alongside him.

It's a strange mixture of a little deflation that they aren't going out on a mission and a little brightness that they're staying on Coruscant and thus closer to a certain important someone in Anakin's life and I don't mean the Chancellor and then a bit of deflation again because of what happened last night.

"We're going to discuss that?"

Pause.

"I get the Quor'sav-fried steak." That is, if he's going to have to have this conversation, Obi-Wan gets to pay.

[I've been playing him as somewhere in the midst of the Clone Wars. I don't remember if I specifically stated whether he'd become a Knight yet but he did meet Dia on a solo mission so that seems to imply that's probably the case. So it's sort of a handwavey "somewhere between eps ii and iii" place. Particularly since you know I haven't watched the Clone Wars show and I'm rusty on the books. :)]

"You know, I wonder sometimes if the Council really likes being used as a bogeyman to ensure good behavior." He keeps his tone light, but there's still an undercurrent of tension about it.

"Anyway," he forges on before Obi-Wan can call him on it, "I'm sure Dex will be glad to see us."

From: [personal profile] morally_cryptic
"I guess there might be a first time, someday. Just not today." Besides, Anakin was planning on dessert, too. But maybe he'd be nice and see if Dex had some berries for Obi-Wan.

That could wait until they actually got there, of course. And yes, it's Anakin who borrows a Temple speeder to whisk them away to CoCo town in. He even doesn't break any traffic laws, though he's gotten quite good at finding shortcuts through Coruscant's crowded traffic lanes.

In almost no time at all, he's setting the speeder down to park right outside the diner. "After you."

The teasing bow at least prompts a return grin from Anakin, suggesting he's not actually so concerned about the prospect of their upcoming "conversation" as it might have otherwise appeared. Or maybe during the drive he realized it's better for Obi-Wan to believe he only had a night of indiscretion with a friend...which is true...but leads away from the truth of his attachment to Padme. Though of course the thought of Padme has him wondering what he himself should actually do about said night of indiscretion. And now maybe he wishes he could just talk to Obi-Wan about all of it. Sigh.

So he just follows in Obi-Wan's wake before tossing a wave at FLO and then dropping into his own seat.

"I did." Pause. "Just don't tell me you're going to get the sliders." Again.

[maybe it's like the One Ring and fell out of Anakin's pocket conveniently as Obi took his legs out from under him so Obi took it with him when he took Anakin's lightsaber. =P Or Anakin had left it with Padme while he was off fighting in the Outer Rim.

Also I kind of want this to be the universe where Anakin gets around to telling Obi-Wan about Padme on his own before you know...events w/ the Clone War and Palpatine out him. :|a But probly not in this thread.]


"Sounds like a good choice," he says approvingly. Part of him is wondering how long he can draw this out until Obi-Wan actually loses his patience except...

Obi-Wan has always had far more patience than Anakin.

But he at least is going to wait until FLO comes to take their orders and they're left alone again for a moment or three. Better yet, he waits, making inconsequential talk until their orders come back and Obi-Wan is about to take his first bite.

"It was Barriss."

For his part, once the words are said, Anakin turns to his own meal if only so he can have his mouth full by the time Obi-Wan responds and thus he doesn't have to add any more clarification right away. And yes, Obi-Wan, he saw that hesitation. Of course he did.

And just because he's still not sure what he should say next, he takes another bite and chews it thoughtfully.

Finally, he just asks, a little carefully, "is that all?"

[I am fine with Siri still being alive. Retcon ALL THE THINGS.]

"We were..." he shrugs, "sharing war stories." He's not even sure whose idea it was to have a drink or three. Probably something more like mutual unspoken agreement. "It seemed appropriate."

Well, the first drink had. Sort of raising a glass to those who had died.

"To be fair it was Whyren's Reserve."

As for the other part, there's a hint of a wince. "It's not like we didn't each other when I was still a Padawan."

He goes back to his food for a minute, focusing there instead. "It just...felt good to...be with someone who understood."

And that's why this particular indiscretion didn't happen with Padme. She hasn't seen the same things he has.

He doesn't want her to see the things he has. Ever.

Completely guileless, "I'm pretty sure that's exactly what the label on the bottle said." But Obi-Wan's reaction is something he can be comfortable with.

So he can go back to his food for real and in between bites, "I wouldn't have done it," he waves vaguely in the direction space, "out there, you know." That would have put people around him, that he cares about, and yes that includes the damn clones in jeopardy.

But back here on Coruscant, where the populace is so insulated from the war they can go about their daily lives without even thinking about it so much, there's a certain release of tension you don't even realize you've been holding on to for months. Which had certainly made things last night happen more easily.

Good thing his hair has grown out so Obi-Wan can't see his eartips turn pinkish. "We were just agreeing on the subject, Master. I don't think you have to worry about it becoming a recurring theme."

Not with Barriss anyway.

Oh.

That.

Another thing he probably should have already mentioned before now. But he'd half expected it to be brought up in the briefing that was canceled.

"It was successful," he allows. "But-..." he looks up at Obi-Wan, all blue-eyed earnestness now, genuinely curious of the response he'll get now that he's thought to ask the question. It hadn't occurred to him when he'd taken Dia to the Council. "You didn't feel anything...strange? Right before I got back?"

Was he the only one who'd sensed her arrival or was it only that h'd been on planet when it had happened?

That has a flicker of disappointment before he pushes his plate aside. "I did pick someone up. I thought she was another Sith-"

He pauses.

"-well, she kind of is but not like Ventress," for instance.

Apparently we've gone from 'make Obi-Wan pay for dinner' day to 'make Obi-Wan confused' day.
