The last few weeks had been something else. Remy had spent pretty much his entire adult life striving to remain unattached to everything. Never get attached to a home, a person, an item he didn’t carry with him at all times, because he never knew when or if he would have to abandon everything and run. He had spent the first half decade of his exile in Hub exploring, going through every portal that seemed safe, sending drones through first and then heading through himself, blending in with populations where he could, and where he couldn’t, being more or less honest about being a visitor from another world. He had been young, but smart, and he only learned from his experiences.

He still explored new portals as they opened. He still tried to blend in with the human worlds. But such travels had long lost their wonderment for the thief. It was part of his job to find the new worlds available, scout them, and send information back to the Guild. Now, to Henri.

Henri.

Remy loved his family. He had sacrificed for them, their safety. For the Guild. But now, he was being asked to give more. Again. He sighed and paused at the entrance to the Green Goddess; it wasn’t as though what Henri was suggesting would make him an unhappy man, not in the slightest, but he wasn’t sure Jaya (or her people) would feel the same way. And because of that single fact, Remy resented being used the way he was. As happy as he would be to do it, it would be misery to do this and see Jaya unhappy. Yes, she had said that she would want this, but statements spoken when things weren’t even a possibility, not even a far-fetched option, were different than those stated as fact. Different than being the road you were presented to take.

He pushed through the door and sauntered over to his favorite barstool, giving the bartender a nod before he turned to scan the room for Jaya.

Jaya hadn't been in the Hub nearly as long as Remy, but she'd been there long enough to recognize the opportunities that the Hub represented, for her personally, for her family and for the Orion Syndicate. There were so many worlds that it was difficult to know where to start, and she'd found the decade of experience that Remy had amassed, along with the collective knowledge of his Guild had helped her to identify sources of small and expensive items that could profitably be sent through the Hub.

Which was one of the reasons why she was glad to be with him, as his paramour (that was the word that they'd decided was the best to describe an Orion Dancing Girl who was in an exclusive relationship), although it was secondary to other considerations. At least for her. For the Syndicate, the fact that he was knowledgeable and well connected made him worth cultivating, even if it meant tying up one third of the operatives the Syndicate had in the Hub.

The precise details of how she was to be tied up had yet to be settled-Remy hadn't seemed eager to settle them, and she hadn't wanted to push, especially since the word from the Syndicate had been clear. She could agree to be his paramour on her own, but a marriage-that must be sealed by an alliance of some kind. And since his brother had made it clear that there would be no such alliance, and since she knew what being "sold" had done to Remy the first time, well, she'd decided for the moment to let things lie for a bit, and just enjoy the fact that they were together.

That she could come out from the store room and find him right where he belonged, at the corner of her bar with his black suit on. She walked over, putting a little extra roll into her hips, pheromones sending out promises of passion as well as affection and kissed Remy deeply. "Its good to see you, sweetness. I just finished up checking the inventory-want to come back with me and have a bite to eat? And spend some time together?" knowing that the answer to both questions would likely be yes, but she knew he'd want to be asked, instead of just told.

Remy’s time in Hub had been long, fruitful, and sometimes - often - difficult. But he liked the city, enjoyed visiting the worlds that connected to it, some so similar to his own, and others so very different. He had helped Jaya because he had wanted to, and yes, he had made himself, and the Guild, money doing it, regardless what Mercy thought on the matter.

He didn’t help Jaya entirely because he cared for her, though. There were other reasons, practical ones. She was well connected within her Syndicate, after all. But like Jaya, that wasn’t his primary reasoning for helping her the way he did. It wasn’t why he was with her in the first place.

The conversation he’d had with his brother weighed on his mind heavily. He had done exactly as he had said he would, as Henri had requested of him. He had reached out to his contacts, he had discussed things with them, without speaking of what or why, simply keeping things as business, and then chuckling and joking with them, exchanging gossip and small talk as they were all like to do after business was finished. That had taken time, effort, and a few coins and credits, depending on the world and where the meeting was. He had a few more he was waiting to hear back from as well as another meeting scheduled for the next morning, but tonight he was coming to see Jaya. They would talk, and once that was done, they could move on to less formal things that might be just as intense, but were far more enjoyable.

Jaya might not think that Remy was eager to settle things between them, but that wasn’t precisely true. He would be happy to marry her, except that he wasn’t willing to force his Guild into something they didn’t want any part of, and he wasn’t willing to press her into a relationship she didn’t 100% want. It was a situation that had multiple catch-22’s in it, and that made it a mess.

He was looking for her when she approached, his smile growing as she kissed him and then spoke. “Remy has de mos’ perfect timing, non?” She offered food, and Remy began to nod. “O’ course, Chere. I came t’night t’see yo’, so a meal et time together sounds good.” He stood from the stool fluidly, “Lead de way, ma Chere.” They had plenty to discuss, which might have been evident in his tone, but that didn’t detract from how happy he was to see her.

Jaya, for her part, didn't have any doubts about wanting to be with Remy. She, like most Orions, believed that affection and desire were permanent, and either developed quickly or didn't develop at all. Not that desire was the only thing a marriage required, but Remy had all of the things-connections, a good family, a work ethic, the ability to keep house and care for children. It seemed simple enough, on a personal level, with the only complication being that the Orion Syndicate would want the Thieve's Guild to at the least, promise aid and support to the Syndicate's operations within the Hub and likely help with contacts and placing people in other universes. Something that his brother had refused to do which meant...well, Jaya didn't like to dwell on that.

"Your timing is always excellent." Jaya said, kissing him again, and then leading him to the family quarters. Kaalth had left a pot of something that smelled tasty in the dining area, and Jaya, never one to expect the man to do all the work, brought over a pair of bowls and spoons and began dishing up the stew. "How have you been?" she asked Remy, giving him an opening to talk about whatever it was that he clearly needed to discuss with her.

It wasn’t a doubt about being with him. It was a doubt about marrying him. Remy wasn’t convinced that Jaya would want to marry him. Marriage was a lifelong commitment, it wasn’t something with an easy out, it wasn’t something that would pass or fade with time; it was permanent, and he needed to make sure it was what she wanted. That she understood that part.

He would not enter into a sham of a marriage. Not again.

Smiling at her words, Remy shrugged almost carelessly, “Dis es true,” he spoke the words with a self-deprecating grin, not meaning them, but enjoying the playful teasing. He kissed her, and let her take them both to the family quarters, happy to follow her as he always did. She dished out the food, and Remy moved to take down glasses to fill with water, “Et has been busy.” It was the truth; Remy could find work whenever he wanted it, but now, with his brother and sister in law in the Hub, he worked harder than he had in the past, trying to prove that he still had his head on straight.

That she was inviting him to speak his mind was evident, but… Remy looked around, making sure they were alone, then moved to Jaya to murmur to her, “Would yo’ marry me? If we could, if it were an option?”

"Yes, I've noticed that you've been busy." Jaya said lightly. Not that he'd been neglecting her, but whenever he wasn't with her, he was out on a job. She wasn't the only one who had noticed-both Ruvet and Nala had remarked that Remy was working like a man who was saving up for a bride price, Nala sounding annoyed at the idea that Jaya would insist on being so traditional, Ruvet with a fond smile, remembering his own youth. Jaya had just shook her head and brushed off the comments. If Remy had been he'd have told her, that wasn't the kind of thing he'd keep as a surprise. That he hadn't spoken of it meant that things were as they were.

Except that then he was speaking of it. She set the glass in her hand down abruptly, only years of practice kept her from spilling "Yes, I would." she said simply, "If we could, I'd marry you tonight. I love you, and I want to be with you." a little more hesitantly she added "Why? Has something-has your brother changed his mind? About cooperating with the Orion Syndicate?"

Right now, Remy was juggling several things in his life, all of which were basically full time jobs; Jaya, his family, and work. Thus far, he had managed to keep all of the balls in the air, but he knew that if he weren’t careful, he’d drop one eventually. Every juggler knew the same thing, it was why they would abruptly end their act from time to time before restarting again. But Remy couldn’t simply stop his juggling. Instead, he had to manage it as best as he could, and hope he managed to keep going until he was able to finally stop it all on his own.

First part of that was coming here tonight, seeing Jaya, and being able to assure he was doing the right thing, making the right choice, not just for himself, or his Guild, but for Jaya, too. He nodded at her words, “Desole, Chere, I do no mean t’spend so much time away.” He smiled to her, eyes crinkling at the corners, “But et es important t’remind mon frere et soeur dat Remy es still a valuable member o’ de Guild.”

The abruptness of her motions, the simpleness of her statement, Remy grinned and leaned to kiss her lightly in place of an immediate answer. When he pulled back, though, he shrugged, “Et depends on what yo’ define as changing his mind an’ cooperating.” Remy, who was nearly always in motion, be it true bodily movement or just fidgeting, went still for a moment, “Es no’ ever going t’be a full t’ing, Chere. Eart’ will be off limits no matter what - es too big a risk t’make. But en Hub?” Remy shrugged, watching her for her reaction, to determine if it would be enough or not.

"I didn't say that you'd been neglecting me, sweetness." Jaya said, the statement itself a sign of how sincere her feelings for Remy were, since pouting about a client's absence was one of the oldest tricks in the book. "Just that I've noticed you've been spreading yourself thin. I'm sorry that you have to prove yourself to your Guild" knowing that part of the reason for it was their relationship "but it is what it is. So if you need to rest tonight, I'll understand." the last said with a teasing smile. Remy had never been so wrung out that he'd wanted to just sleep. Have her do more of the work, well, that was different. And something that they both enjoyed. But Remy Lebeau would never admit to being too tired to show his paramour a good time.

"The Syndicate doesn't want a merger with the Thieve's Guild." Jaya said with a shrug "Just help with locating valuable items that can be resold in my universe at a profit, and things that can move from my universe to other worlds. And relocating people, as you've already done. Perhaps doing that a bit more, if the Syndicate does decide to expand beyond the Hub into another universe." she quirked a brow "Would that be a problem? If it were not your Earth, I mean. I'm not sure that the Syndicate would agree that all Earths are off limits, but I am sure that we'll stick to ones where green skin wouldn't be a problem, and where the Terran females don't react badly to our pheromones." watching how Remy reacted, to see if this would be too much. Hoping it wouldn't, that Henri had rethought things after his dismissal.
