Shuttle rides are boring. This is a fact of life; every traveler who's ever been on an inter-colony or atmo-breaking trip knows this. But it is, perhaps, especially boring when you know exactly what this engine can do (not as much as many machines, but a lot more than this commercial pilot is asking of it) and which trajectories it could take to L4 (several, of which this is the most staid that has any speed at all). Trowa keeps himself occupied with his computer, and tries not to spend too much time mentally calculating alternative routes and contingency plans for various attacks that will never come. He doesn't expect them, but it's something to do. And it never hurts to be prepared.

When they dock, he waits through the excessively slow cross-check -- double-checks and triple-checks are how you keep your equipment in order and yourself alive, but this crew's clearly never done this under fire -- and then slings his duffel bag over his shoulder and files dutifully off the shuttle with the other passengers. Time for the Immigration And Visitor Registration paperwork. Trowa tells them the truth, nowadays, although occasionally in rather targeted wording.

All that's ahead after that is a much shorter (and, privately, less irritating) trip by ground transport to the rich district of this colony. He'll call Quatre when he's close.

Quatre left work fifteen minutes back; he checked out with Pelle for the day (Pelle's staying on until the end of the day, as he takes his weekends on Saturdays and Sundays), when Trowa let him know he was close by. He's had just enough time to put his suit jacket in the hall closet when Trowa shows up at the door.

Quatre answers it before he can ring the bell, so he swings the door open and says "Hi," smiling, before Mr. Kalns walks into the main hall and pauses. Quatre dismisses him, amiably.

"How was your trip?" he asks, as he moves aside to let Trowa in. "Do you want me to take your laptop?"

"I still have some e-mails to take care of," Quatre says, glancing over with a grin (the laptop case is on his right shoulder) as they walk back, "but that's about all."

(It's 4 p.m. Quatre's normal work day is about 6:30 am - 7pm, plus several extra hours devoted to industry magazines and e-mails, so this is getting off early, for him.)

They pass by the sunroom on their right side, but at this time of day it's empty of all but two of his nephews, working on a puzzle on the floor. Neither of them glance up for more than a moment, but he gives them a quick wave.

Quatre laughs, quietly, as they continue back past the kitchen, and reach the elevator. It's the easiest way to get around in the central wing, which doesn't have a central set of stairs.

He hits the button for the second floor, and leans lightly against the wall of the elevator.

Quatre smiles down at his feet for the moment they're standing together, and leans to the side slightly before the door opens.

The walk past two meeting rooms and a currently dark breakfast nook, before they're in a hallway of several doors. Quatre puts his hand on the first door, and waits a moment before opening it up.

"It's already been keyed to you," he says, as he walks in and sets Trowa's laptop case on the breakfast table to the left of the door.

"Would you like anything to drink?" Quatre asks. The minifridge has already been stocked for his arrival, along with a bowl of fruit set on the table.

Quatre turns so that he's facing Trowa a little more directly, instead of half-towards the minifridge. He smiles, slow and unselfconcious, raising his right hand to rest the back of his fingers gently against the side of Trowa's jaw, below his ear.

"I'm glad that you're here," he says after a moment, however unnecessary it might be.

Quatre's terribly pleased; his smile can't really brighten much from where it was, but it's true.

He takes a step closer, bringing his left hand to Trowa's side. There's a brief moment of hesitation, before he tilts his head the small distance to close the gap between them. His right hand opens gently to splay against Trowa's jaw and neck.

Quatre's right hand drops to Trowa's shoulder, and his eyes are mostly closed for a moment as he takes a breath.

They crinkle with happiness when he opens them and sees Trowa's smile.

"Do you know what classes you're sitting in on, yet?"

"I hear their engineering courses are fairly interesting," Quatre murmurs.

He's always been somewhat interested in attending the college for at least a class or two, but he's never found the time. The longer he stays at the company, the more he sees it as unlikely to ever happen.

"What other ones were you looking at?" Quatre asks, after turning his head to the side to laugh slightly.

"I doubt anyone will be on the lookout for someone trying to come to class without the teacher noticing," he says, entertained.

Quatre grins, and his eyes drift semi-closed for awhile. He's in no danger of falling asleep, he just --

It's nice to stand here with Trowa, his hand a light pressure on Quatre's back and he himself warm beneath Quatre's hands.
