There was a history between them, Brandt could tell. Was this another mutant? Brandt didn't shy from his gaze, though he felt like he was on display or something. "Two bite brownies. Apparently they are gonna blow my mind."

"Tell me this is not your idea of wining and dining," Warren clutched his chest, aghast.

"Oh, we just finished the lobster and chardonnay, sorry you had to miss it," Laurie bit off with an eyeroll.

Warren slid a $50 across the table. "Treat yourselves." He gave Laurie a wink.

Scowling, he slid it back across the table and stood. There was a genuine snap of cold anger underneath his tone. "I'm going out for a smoke. Try not to devour him whole."

"Charming as ever, Keelan!" Warren chuckled, giving him a wave.

Brandt suddenly felt like the odd man out and now Laurie was leaving him alone with this strange young man. Brandt's eyes were on him the whole time as he left. Concerned. Pleading even. Don't leave him alone with this guy.

When Laurie was gone put the door Brandt took in a deep breath and reached for his glass of tea to take a drink. "You frightened off my company."

"Oh, trust me, not much frightens Laurie Keelan. Not much intrigues him, either. You must be a special sort."

"Do I detect a note of jealousy?" Brandt was onto you kid.

He started laughing. "Not today. That was a segue of a different sort." He raised his hand, holding it a few inches away from Brandt's face.

He batted the kids hand away, then pointed at him. "That's a warning. I don't like to be touched. Try it again and I will seriously hurt you."

"I don't doubt it," Warren's grin remained in place. "You're a mutant."

Brandt grit his teeth, and looked around to make sure no one was listening. "I guess I'm in good company then." He mimed to the server that he wanted the check.

"I have wings," Warren tapped his own shoulder. "Literally. Yeah. Try opening with that at parties."

"So you can fly? Sounds thrilling." When the server brought the check Brandt politely handed it to Warren, since he had so kindly offered before. He packed up the brownies in the provided to go container and bag and set it in his lap before releasing the breaks on his chair. He managed to maneuver out from under the table and rolled himself toward the door.

He sighed and clipped a $20 on the tab, getting up to help wheel Brandt outside.

Laurie had just lit up by then and took a long drag, glancing over at them and moving to Brandt's side. "I got it. I'll text you, War, alright?"

"Good seeing you. Nice to meet you, Brandt." Warren gave another bow.

"I can fucking do it myself." He said bitterly and started rolling himself toward the stoplight. Yeah neither of them were really his favorite people right about now. Warren was a brat who thought he could do whatever he wanted and Laurie had just left him alone in there with him.

At the stoplight he started pushing the pedestrian button to cross.

Laurie moved after him anyway, wrapping his hands around the grips on the back of Brandt's chair. "I'm sorry," he murmured.

"Yeah, well you fucking should be." He reached up and angrily pushed the button several more times. "What the fuck was that you just--fucking left me with that--asshole?"

"Warren knows how to push my buttons." He grimaced. "I didn't want to do something I'd regret." He exhaled slowly. "I'm sorry."

He took a deep breath or two, in and out through the nose and mouth. "Do I intrigue you like I intrigue him? Like some new toy to play with? Am I a novelty?"

Laurie shook his head. "Brandt. I don't think about people like that."

He scrubbed his face with both hands and when the light said walk Brandt let Laurie push him this time. "I'm sorry. I'm not used to--people knowing let alone acting like--that." Like it was cool to play with matches, or as he'd said like Brandt was a shiny new plaything. "Is he part of this institute for the gifted?"

He nodded. "It is what it is I guess." He saw no point in dwelling on it. "Prolly bred in him to act like that."

Laurie sighed, and pushed Brandt across the street. "He's been pushed all his life. I don't think he knows the difference. He's used to being the resident plaything. He doesn't know how he comes off, sometimes. He's not nice, but he's a decent human being. He just... pisses me the hell off," he laughed. "No fucking boundaries or tact whatsoever. You know, some things I'd prefer to keep to myself when I'm just meeting someone. War has to go blab everyone's laundry."

"Sounds like a real charmer," he said in an obviously sarcastic tone.
