Quatre has stocked up on decaf coffee since the last time Trowa was in this room, even if he made an amiable face at the bag when he pulled it out. Trowa would have been fine without, and even bothered to say so, but Quatre is Quatre.

Which is why the coffeemaker is equipped with a one-cup-at-a-time setting, in case of guests. (Okay, in the certainty of at least one guest.) This is also why Quatre's mug contains highly caffeinated coffee instead of the lightly sweetened decaf Trowa has.

Trowa also has his boyfriend's shoulder resting against his, and on the whole, he's pretty good with the world at the moment.

Quatre's thinking, and one of the things he is thinking is that he definitely didn't have any ulterior purposes in mind when he decided the set of rooms needed a couch.

Well, okay, his ulterior motives existed, but they were entirely innocent; for instance, it's nice to be sitting warm next to Trowa on something that isn't hay. Not that there's anything wrong with hay, when it's not a ridiculous temperature outside.

Well, not entirely innocent.

... He's gotten off track.

Glancing up from his coffee he smiles, slight and (more than slightly) pleased, at Trowa. "I think, maybe," he says, "I've lost my enchantment with winter."

"You may not have noticed," he concedes, graciously (jokingly, fondly), "but it's approximately the weather for penguins. Though there are some warm-weather ones of those, aren't there. Polar bears?"

"Mm," Quatre acknowledges, grinning. "Perhaps they are warm-weather polar bears. Though, I should hate to see their cold weather..."

Quatre rolls his eyes, huffing a breath of amusement.

He falls silent, mildly entertained but still thinking about something else entirely.

After some minutes, he asks "What's the religious makeup of Milliways, do you know?"

You mentioned those before." Quatre pauses, thinking, before smiling slightly over at Trowa. "I was wondering, given the party notice."

Quatre slips his left hand under Trowa's right, resting his thumb against the side of Trowa's knuckles.

"I suppose that fits the demographics I've encountered," he says, amiably, "but I didn't consider extrapolating that to how the bar as a whole functions. I suppose Hannukah could be occurring over the 25th, by local standards."

Saturnalia and Hogswatch he doesn't even know.

A sideways glance: "I think I might attend."

"It might be interesting." He drinks some coffee, as well. "I've never been to a Christmas-etc. party, before, and the man putting it on seems worth getting to know. He's very thoughtful, hosting all of those Life Support meetings.

"I don't think he uses any of it for personal gain."

Strangely. Quatre doesn't know what Guppy sees in the endeavour at all; he doubts the man is being paid for it.

Quatre laughs, quietly, setting his coffee mug atop a coaster on the side table next to him.

"Ever the skeptic." He manages a hint of fabricated disappointment. The smile at the corner of his mouth unfortunately undermines it.

Quatre extends his right hand, offering to take Trowa's mug as well.

"I'll for--" Quatre can't quite make it; he starts laughing, mug in hand. He manages to set it down on another coaster before he dissolves entirely, thankfully.

Quatre leans into Trowa, bringing their hands up so he can duck his forehead to rest lightly against the back of Trowa's hand as he recovers from laughing.

It's only about a minute, but when he glances back to Trowa he has to bite his lip lightly to pin back a grin.

He lets go of Trowa's hand to run his own lightly along Trowa's arm, settling on his bicep, as he shifts his weight slightly away from Trowa; he grins.

Quatre was pretty sure he would be, even before offering to take his coffee mug (which was an obvious question, if anything is); but the confirmation isn't unappreciated.

It's safe to say that there is kissing.

Later: "Maybe there will be presents," Quatre hypothesizes, leaning against Trowa with his laptop propped up on his knees. (Unfortunately, due to the screen, Trowa can't read it from his angle. Hopefully he won't feel left out, while he reads his book; it's primarily work e-mails that Quatre is drafting responses to in order to reply once he's back home.)

"Mm," Quatre says.

He's currently considering whether wearing a dark green waistcoat would be too spot-on.

He thinks he can pull it off.

Quatre glances at him, silently entertained, before returning to his laptop.

He makes a quick note regarding fashion considerations for the 25th, before returning to his e-mails.

"Currency," Quatre says, using the more common synonym as he glances up. The term Trowa said is not particularly in use anymore, outside of specialized documents. He adds "Or liquid assets, in general," in English as he scans the paragraph. "He does mean assets, here, I think."

Turning to read the book brought Quatre's side in closer contact with Trowa's, and he leans into his boyfriend, slightly. He moves his right hand off of the keyboard and runs it lightly from Trowa's left hip to the middle of his chest, lingering several moments against his abdomen.

He presses a kiss against Trowa's shoulder, left hand keeping his laptop steady, and leans against him for several moments more, eyes closed. It's nice, to have Trowa here. He's warm.

Quatre was originally intending to move, soon, back to writing his e-mails - but when Trowa tips his head against his he thinks something muzzily along the lines of I'll do that later and stays where he is.

He doesn't really drift off, but he relaxes; his left hand hits the save button on his laptop, and he closes it with his thumb.

His eyes are partly open, and he's making a half-hearted attempt to read along with Trowa. He can't read the right-hand pages from his angle but somehow, he expects (partially because he's read the book before) he'll survive.
