Much as Zoisite appreciates the lack of active fires going on at this particular moment, he's also desperately hoping something will, in some dark corner of his mind. He's rattling around, grabbing something with his hair up in an artfully-messy bun. The others have all dealt, more or less, with their respective human pasts.

And Zoisite does not want to. He has a deep suspicion that ignorance is bliss in this regard. The strawberry-blond Shitennou assembles a sandwich, frowning faintly.

Nothing's come to bust down their door for just over a month, Trami isn't expected to hit Tokyo, Mamoru isn't pushing him to reconnect with his family, and he finished his paper on time. Everything's fine, everyone's in their appropriate bodies, and there's food that isn't take out in the main kitchen.

Jadeite's decided to embrace it. After all, when everything inevitably goes wrong, he'll want to have enjoyed the peace as much as he could - which is why he's heading into the kitchen. The hunt for sweets almost always turned up some kind of Makoto or Kazuo crafted treat, or storebought things if not. Things have been quiet, so he's not expecting to run into anyone, especially not a frowning Zoisite.

"Something wrong?" He asks, careful not to look too worried or nosy, skirting around him so that he can go check to freezer. He ate Usagi's ice cream a month ago, so he isn't sure his own ice cream is going to be safe just yet.

"Oh, just thinking." Life is too good right now, in Zoisite's entirely biased opinion. Either something bad is going to happen, or Mamoru is going to cause a personal sort of bad thing to happen. After a moment, he watches the sweet-seeking missile, takes a bite of his sandwich, and swallows.

"So, did you remember anything about your family initially?" It's definitely revealing what's on his mind, but ah well. Their Prince was due to start making Sad Princely Eyes at him any day now.

Jadeite is going to leave it there - really, he is, because he'd kind of avoided human contact for like two weeks there and isn't in a position to judge - but then Zoisite asks that, and, well, it's obvious what's on his mind. It's a good thing he's just found someone's box of Pino, because he's going to need sweets for this conversation.

"Not until we ran into Hana," he says, gaze flickering up for all of a second before dropping back to the red packaged ice cream snack. He tears open the wrapper as he tries to put his thoughts into words. "It's not like the memorybeans, it's kind of hard to tell, now."

"Mm. I don't remember anything about mine. Mamoru is the one who figured out that I'm likely Italian." But to Zoisite, he... doesn't identify with that much at all. Whatever life he'd had before the Dark Kingdom almost felt like it had happened to someone else. He bites into his sandwich, crunching through lettuce and tomatoes in displaced aggression.

"And since I'm the last of us to do anything about the 'who I used to be' thing, I know Mamoru is going to be making big sad eyes at me fairly soon over it." With nothing else to distract them, nothing so major that no others, singly or in numbers, could deal with it.

The green-eyed Shitennou wraps a loose bit of hair around his finger with a sigh.

"It sucks to be the last one, huh?" He's found his prize, so the freezer is closed and Jadeite leans against the closed machine, biting into chocolate coated vanilla ice cream. His heart clenches, a little. He knows too well how that feels, and for all that he and Mamoru have made up, he still doesn't want anything to do with that life, or those girls, or the way his gut clenches when he thinks about any of it.

But he did learn something from the whole mess, and maybe that something can help now.

"If you tell him you don't want to know, that you don't feel good about it, he'll probably back off. I know it may not seem like it, but he'd leave you alone about it."
Zoisite 2018-10-01 01:26:01 98522
"Mm... I do have things I can infer that makes me think it would be a bad plan." There are patterns of thought too entrenched to be the result of anything Beryl did. "I may have to talk to him about that, then."

He's glad that he brought it up, though he still half-expecting some disaster on the horizon. He launches back into his sandwich, raising an eyebrow at Jadeite before he finishes entirely.

"It's a good idea, and you can trust that because I'm the dummy who avoided it for ages. If you talk to him now, before it's even an issue? He'll probably remember it when the past comes knocking on our door again."

Pino is delicious, a perfect balance of semi-bitter chocolate cover and sweet ice cream. It's also much, much more interesting than Zoisite's raised eyebrow, and any lurking questions that might be hiding with that brow. Eventually though, his ice cream is done and Zoisite's sandwich is gone and the both of them are still in the kitchen, so, "Is there something else?"
Zoisite 2018-10-01 01:41:53 98525
"Just wondering if it seems too quiet to you, without some major crisis keeping us in the crosshairs?" While he was using it as an excuse to avoid things, halfway, it seems like their lives have been constantly chaotic with few reprieves since the Dark Kingdom.

"Also wondering if you ate anything that wasn't sweet before that."

"Asking questions like that is how we'll end up with a giant robot on the balcony or a pack of youma on the roof," is the immediate answer, offered with not a second of hesitation and one helping of woeful puppy eyes. "If we're really lucky, trouble might wait out the rest of typhoon season, so let's try not to jinx it."

The end of typhoon season can't come fast enough, and not just because it will mean Mamoru will be stronger - no one liked a typhoon, even one that didn't touch the city. It was too nerve wracking, knowing the winds could change and the storm front drift. Just like this conversation is drifting, and his pout has an entirely new reason now. "Not that it's your business, but yes, I did."
Zoisite 2018-10-01 02:07:51 98531
The mention of typhoon season gets Zoisite to nod. That's true enough. "Well, it's not like you're Usagi or anything." Hummingbirds probably envy her metabolism. Green eyes flick over Jadeite briefly before Zoisite inclines his head, slightly.

"Good talk." And then he's gone. Not teleporting away, but wandering away.
Saburo Yukimura 2018-10-01 02:12:03 98532
There's nothing he can say to refute that (if he wants to refute it? It's technically true) but luckily he doesn't have to, because Zoisite's heading out and he can read a dismissal. He shakes his head with a short laugh - "Good talk," - and goes to steal more ice cream.
