Clint was almost always glad to miss out on island craziness, but he was especially happy after listening to the radio today. He couldn't think of anyone he'd lost that he'd actually want to see again, which was probably sad and depressing, but he didn't mind. He was much happier focusing on the people he still had, which today meant stopping to get bagels and coffee on the way back from his morning run.

"Hey, I'm home!" he called out when he got in. Hopefully, the dogs would avoid his sweatiness and he wouldn't have to dodge them with coffee in his hands.

[Open for calls or whatever!]

Kitty was on the sofa, working on her final tomorrow, and she looked so relieved at the break. "Oooh, and you brought stuff."

"On like its third revision," she said, getting up to follow him. "You'd think I'd learn to not leave it till the last minute in case of weird weekends."

From: [personal profile] throughaphase
"That's part of why I keep revising it," Kitty admitted. "The day after all the dead people leave? I'm okay with easing up. With kids at least I could babysit till their parents were done. ...Actually now I'm sorry the weekends weren't reversed."

"Yeah. And then I can only feel a lot guilty that I can go to New York on Wednesday and see all the people I've gotten back over the last year," Kitty said. "Maybe next weekend will be normal?"

"I know. But like... last time this happened I was sad Peter didn't show, and now I see him every week. And I mean, sure, it's because he never actually died, but still. I got someone back and everyone else doesn't," Kitty said, looking over the bagel selection. "Just kind of awkward to think about."

"Is there nothing you'd want to say to anyone?" Kitty asked.

Kitty frowned. "See, the kids are much happier."

"Don't be sorry," she said, reaching over to give his hand a squeeze. "And yeah, the ending's never fun. The 'I miss my kid who doesn't exist yet' funk tends to be a week-ruined."

throughaphase: (saying words)
From: [personal profile] throughaphase
"Definitely not," Kitty smiled. And it occurred to her that she actually had an opportunity to bring up what she'd been thinking about since her talk with Jack, so she should really put on her big girl pants. "Do you ever think about a timeline when it comes to that?"

throughaphase: (looking down)
From: [personal profile] throughaphase
"Yeah, for us," she said, grabbing a bagel. "Jack and I were talking about the kids. I said I wasn't in a huge rush and he asked about you and... I've never actually asked you that."

throughaphase: (in all seriousness)
From: [personal profile] throughaphase
"Okay, good." Maybe she was a little relieved this wasn't something where one of them had thoughts and just didn't tell the other. "Lexi as a little girl I can handle no problem now. But two am feedings is another story."

"Yeah, when one of my jobs is at night and another's in a different dimension?" Kitty said. "And it's not exactly like you do unimportant things."

"I'm pretty sure Lexi would say the exact opposite," Kitty pointed out. "That girl adores you. And your eighty dogs."

Date: 2015-04-20 03:55 am (UTC)
throughaphase: (okay with this)
From: [personal profile] throughaphase
"I don't think anyone grows up normal. For what it's worth, I think you'd be a great dad. And not just because you'd be around the same maturity level," Kitty teased.

Date: 2015-04-20 04:31 am (UTC)
throughaphase: (serious)
From: [personal profile] throughaphase
"No," Kitty said immediately, shaking her head. "You're not that guy."

Date: 2015-04-20 06:04 am (UTC)
throughaphase: (talk to me)
From: [personal profile] throughaphase
"Yeah, it is. I think about it, too," she said. And paused. "Is it bad I figured all this time that Lexi was totally unplanned because I didn't think we'd ever have this conversation?"

"I guess. We could get married and still want to wait a while, hypothetically," Kitty said. "I wonder if a lot of couples just don't decide it's an excuse to not deal with birth control anymore." To be fair, it was a hassle.

Date: 2015-04-20 07:53 pm (UTC)
throughaphase: (listening to every word)
From: [personal profile] throughaphase
"Yeah, it doesn't really work right now," Kitty agreed. "So... do you actually want to get married first?"

If she was asking about kids, she might as well ask about that part, too.

From: [personal profile] throughaphase
"Well, yeah," Kitty said, tilting her head a little. "But we don't need to, if it's just that it's the next step, or just what you do before you have kids."

Date: 2015-04-21 04:44 am (UTC)
throughaphase: (optimistic)
From: [personal profile] throughaphase
"Oh. That's better," she said, a little sheepishly. "I'd want to. At some point. No pressure or anything."

Date: 2015-04-21 12:42 pm (UTC)
throughaphase: (pleased)
From: [personal profile] throughaphase
"And without the island forcing us into talking this time," Kitty smiled. "Go Team Us."
