Sharpie Posted February 7 Share Posted February 7 September 77 Having an ex-brother no longer living in the same house couldn't be the same as having a brother living in the same house. Despite his better instincts, Gaius did miss his brother, although he didn't in the slightest miss the chaos that perpetually swirled around him like dust around a traveller in summer. So, in order to catch up with Lucius (and remind himself that no, he really didn't miss his brother's brand of chaos in the slightest!), he had invited his brother to dinner. A private meal, just the two of them, the way they had used to share meals before Lucius' whole adoption and everything else. Despite the adoption meaning that they were no longer brothers in the eyes of the law, he still felt a responsibility for Lucius... and dammit, yes, Lucius was his brother, the perpetual thorn in the side he had always been. He loved Lucius despite himself. Things were set out neatly in the triclinium, and Gaius could console himself that at least this time he knew Lucius hadn't had a hand in any of the food preparation, getting in the slaves' way and upsetting the smooth running of the house. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
