Summer had rolled around once again, leaving Hanna a little bit surprised at how well things were going in his life. His job was going well although a little bit boring with all of the extra desk work. Toni had just finished her police dog training and was now for the most part working with an animal partner and less with Hanna. However part of Toni’s training was to get her dog to accept Hanna, that had taken a lot of effort as animals tended to really dislike the magician. But finally raised up from a pup next to the redhead the dog had begrudgingly accepted the other officer and now the three of them were able to work together.
But summer and Hanna’s two week vacation where now at hand. He’d been hinting To Jayne that his vacation time was coming up, occasionally asking the punk if he wanted to come once again on his yearly trip with Toni’s pack. Jayne however tended to dodge the question or change the subject before giving a straight answer. He obviously didn’t want to say no but after last year wasn’t entirely keen on having a repeat.
Hanna didn’t entirely remember what had happened last year. A part of his vacation was dedicated to appeasing a local forest God. Offering his body up for the god to run free in mortal skin even just for one day.
Last year however the god had done something new, introducing himself to Jayne but that was where Hanna’s knowledge ended. Jayne wouldn’t talk about it, what had happened between him and the god, and Hanna tended not to pressure Jayne to talk about things that he didn’t want to.
After all he understood what it was like to have things you just didn’t want to share.
Still, he needed an answer as they were leaving this weekend…
"Jay? I’m just gonna ask you something directly and you can totally say no if you want, I’m not going to pressure you…" Hanna started after putting his book down and straddling the punk’s waist in bed. "I’m leaving this weekend with Toni and her pack to go out to the forest and I want to know if you’re coming with us or not."
"I just need to know for the sake of like food and trip planning, really you can change your mind either way but if you haven’t taken the time off work or can’t get the time I don’t want you to get in trouble on it." He rushed to assure Jayne again that there was no pressure. "And I know you didn’t have like totally 100% the best time with everything last year so if you’d be happier at home that’s cool too, or if there’s someone else you wanna visit, whatever you’d like to do I just gotta go out there for a few days and I can come back early too if you want." He babbled on.
