“My apologies, I only meant to express concern,” he said, ducking his head, expression a bit sheepish. Of course, he doubted Roy would appreciate his concern, none that anyone else expressed seemed to do a thing to stop him, so why would this be any different? The corner of Kaldur’s mouth twitched upwards as he shook his head. “No, I am rather persistant and stubborn. I had merely hoped to talk and… perhaps spend some time with Roy Harper instead of Red Arrow?”
“Of course you did.” He sighed, actually smiling slightly by wha the other had said last, nodding, persistant and stubborn, exactly why he didn’t really want to argue about anything, so he might as well just let it go, so they could spend some time together. Since they haven’t done that in ages. “Hah, spoken like some poet, but yeah, sure I’m up for that, we could grab a drink or something?” Maybe order some food while at it, skipping that for as long as Roy had, was starting to show.
A little of the tension went out of Kaldur’s shoulders at the sight of Roy’s smile, glad he had not made another misstep here. He hadn’t thought there was anything particularly poetic about his words, so he decided to let that go, assuming Roy was simply mocking him. At the suggestion, he inclined his head in a slight nod. “I would not be opposed to that… perhaps some food as well?’ he added, noticing that the archer seemed to have lost a bit of weight since he had last seen him.
“Hah, well then it’s settled.” He kept the smile up, surprisingly and nodded in the direction down the street. “Know this diner, not to far from here, if you’re up for that? Unless you want something specific, hah, I don’t mind either way.” He really didn’t, as long as he had the company and some drinks and food, he really couldn’t care less what they were eating or drinking. Well as long as it was edible. He didn’t intend on staying for long though, that’s for sure.
