Willy knew Fin's favourite places to go and for many weeks he had avoided them all. He had settled into his little cottage hidden deep in an alley. He had come home, it felt like. He wasn't there much, though. He had let his music take him and he performed almost every night at clubs and bars around the city. Anything to fill the hole in his heart.

But today he couldn't hide away forever. He missed Fin terribly. He thought today he might see if he could find Fin...if only to see him.

Fin's favourite cafe had always been comfortable, a place with familiar food and familiar faces. Willy walked in, no longer a familiar face to the regulars. He scanned the crowd and found Fin sitting in the back, reading what he could only assume was a script. Willy hesitated a moment, asking for a tea with milk and sugar. When he had it, he casually walked back to where Fin sat.

"Hello, my friend," he said softly. Hesitantly. He stood still, waiting for a sign he might be welcoome.

That face, it was still so new, and Fin struggled with it still.

"...Hello, Will," he said softly, hesitating a beat before moving some of his things and gesturing for the other fae to sit. "How are you?" he asked awkwardly, putting his papers down but fidgeting just a little as he straightened them and picked at the paper clip near the top of page one.

"I... I am, actually," Fin admitted, looking a bit unsure, but wanting to be truthful. "I mean, I've been a bit depressed, if I'm honest, but- I'm getting things back on track. A fresh start and all that, I guess."

"That's good, that's wonderful, Will," Fin insisted softly. "Music's important for you, I'm glad you're focusing on it."

"Will..." Fin said softly. "I miss you too, but- We need space. We need to take this slow."

"But we need to get used to being alone with ourselves, Will. Me, perhaps more than you," Fin said softly.

"Will, other than you and my management team, I've talked to maybe three people since coming back to London. ...No one cares that I was gone, and no one gives a shit that I'm back," he assured him. "Everyone's done with me. ...So I'm working. Work's what I have."

"I miss your old face," Fin said before he could stop himself. "This whole changing faces thing... I know you didn't choose to this time, but- I miss the face you had before. Do you think, maybe, it changed because you wanted to get away from the old you?" he asked.

Fin nodded a little, leaning back in his seat and sighing softly. "Sometimes I think it would be lovely to start all over," he confessed. "To erase who I am and try again. Everything feels so messy and complicated, and I feel so..."

Alone. He felt alone. Abandoned, unwanted, forgotten...

He didn't say those things though, instead, he shrugged one shoulder and sighed again. "Acting's so much easier than existing. When you're acting you know how the story will end. You know all the beats, you know what to do. Real life is just... I feel like I keep missing all my cues, and the plot's gone all wrong and there's no time for rewrites. ...Maybe this is a blessing. You get to rewrite your story however you like now."

"I'd like that," Fin assured him quietly. "I just think we need to take our time. ...A fresh start."

Fin was quiet for a long moment, then finally nodded. "Alright, I might come one night," he agreed.

Honestly, it was all a bit frightening. There were so many feelings there, hurt, guilt, anger- It was overwhelming, but this felt like a good start to repairing the damage done between them.

"Oh, uh, it's a script for a mini series. It's quite dark, all about a chap who gets murdered," Fin replied. "He was having an affair with his wife's brother, and you spend the whole series trying to work out if her brother murdered him, or if she did. They want me to play the brother, but I'd quite like to play one of the detectives if I'm honest. I suppose we'll see what happens at the audition."

"I'm doing a limited run of Reap, actually," Fin confessed, looking a touch bashful about it. "First week of December, last week of November."

"You're part of the reason that show even happened in the first place, I'd never make it so you weren't welcome," Fin replied, shaking his head. "You're a big part of that story. ...That time in my life."

Fin watched him, then nodded a little. "Alright," he replied, though he hadn't felt pressured or upset by the other Fae's visit. If Will needed to go, Fin wouldn't beg him to stay.

Fin remained seated, watching Will rise and nodding just once.

"Perhaps," he agreed, not ready to make any promises.

Fin watched him go, feeling as though he should say something, but failing to find words. He always needed a script most when there wasn't one to be had.
