Robert doesn’t know how they end up here, but somehow he and Aaron are propped up at the bar of the Woolpack, necking pints and playing the occasional dart game.
They’re friends. Have been for weeks but this is the first time it feels it - Robert makes a stupid joke and Aaron hides a laugh in return. It’s easy, natural. It’s where Robert hoped they could get, a place where he can still have Aaron in his life even though he knows Aaron has moved on.
Not that Robert ever will.
So he buys another pint, and another, until he has to piss every half an hour and he gets worse and worse at darts. Aaron keeps staying, buying more beers, asking for re-matches. It’s the most fun Robert has had in… he can’t remember the last time he had this much fun, and his cheeks almost hurt from smiling.
Seeing Aaron genuinely enjoy himself after the year they have had is more than Robert could ever have asked for, so he relishes it, can’t help but linger a bit too long when Aaron smiles, let himself bask in the sight of Aaron’s shining eyes and flushed face.
“What’re you looking at?” Aaron asks. He’s holding his pint in front of his face, looking at Robert over the glass. Robert swallows.
Mike enjoys watching horror movies occasionally but Will can’t watch many without being thrown into an episode so Mike makes sure to hold him close and cover his ears and kiss him to distract him at the scary parts.
Which DPS do you spend your time getting good at when you’re not tanking and why do you like that hero?
For me it’s Tracer, and I know a lot of Zarya mains who play Tracer and vice versa. I do it because I think their ult combo is one of the best and I like to play Tracer with good Zaryas. So now I’m curious.
