I'm not here right now. Make it quick.

[Six months is a long time, and the past year of Shion's life had never felt longer. It isn't terribly difficult to sense the slight bitterness in Nezumi's tone, and Shion honestly doesn't like to think about it much either, but one thing stands out.]

I'm definitely older than you now? [Add the six month time difference to the three months they've been here now to get three fourths of a year, and.... Well, okay, Nezumi would be far more upset if he figured out that Shion was still trying to calculate "useless information" like his birthday after all of this time, but it's still important.] Instead of wisdom, don't you think I deserve a little more respect? [Okay, not really, but hey.]

You at least remember your birthday, don't you? [Honestly, he's pretty sure he'll be met with some surly, typical Nezumi-esque response about how it wouldn't matter even if he didn't know, and Shion takes a long sip of his coffee before furrowing his eyebrows upon setting the cup down once more.]

It would be naive of me to assume you'd lost any of your snark. [He can't be called naive anymore after everything he's gone through!] Are you going to sit next to me or not?

[Should he really have expected anything different? Getting any sort of straight answer from Nezumi would be nothing short of a miracle.]

"What an incredible honour it is to be served coffee by you." [They're words Nezumi should remember, memories that Shion has run over and over again in his head, and he can't help but smile softly while looking down into his cup.] It's as great as always. In the past, something like this would have been a luxury, wouldn't it? [It's somewhat nostalgic, and as bittersweet as the mild taste of the drink on his tongue.]

Here, go ahead. [It isn't his mother's bread, and Nezumi's hardly picky when it comes to food, but he gestures to the tray with his free hand.] I haven't had a lot of these before, so we can try them together.

I never said I wanted to be here, but if there's no other choice, the least I can do is find things to be happy about. [Like Nezumi being here. Honestly, that gives him much more solace than anything else.]

Do you know what kind it is? [He's never seen his mother have bread quite like this in her shop, but it looks pretty standard, as far as the colour is concerned. As usual, Nezumi's reaction doesn't give him much to go by, and Shion takes a small bite before mulling over the taste.] It's a little sweet for breakfast, but I like it! What do you think?

Melon? [He may not know bakes confectioneries the way his mother does, but there definitely isn't a trace of melon in this bread. It's a little buttery, and light with a bit of crispness.... All good things, as far as he's concerned. But to Nezumi's words, he laughs a bit and rests his chin in his hands.]

Food isn't scarce here, so you don't have to worry about hoarding it like you usually do. The mice aren't even here to share with us.

[Sitting up straight once more in his chair, Shion watches Nezumi set the bread down and makes a mental note to not try that particular type. There must really be something strange about it if Nezumi of all people doesn't respond to it well.]

Me? This is more than enough! I don't need a present or anything like that. Besides, it's a day for you to celebrate too, right?

[That's.... endearing, somehow or another. Did he really expect any differently?]

I've never done much. My Mom always makes a cherry cake, but aside from that, I never did much aside from spend time with Safu. [The way he says it is surprisingly casual, given the fact that he hasn't mentioned Safu out loud to Nezumi since they reunited. It's more than slightly clear that he's has plenty of time to mull over his losses over the past year, though in spite of his smile, the melancholy in his eyes is difficult to miss.] Just spending time with you is enough.
