There had been a flurry of activity on the solstice, but everything had died down. Jack had stopped monitoring and turned off the alerts. It was a beautiful day. Too beutiful to think about work.

"Hey," he said to Val, smacking the door jamb to get the man's attention. "It's too good outside to be cooped up down here. Fancy getting some lunch with me?"

He already had his coat on, ready to go. He reached in the pocket and pulled out his keys, jingling them.

"Come on, you know you want to."

Val had been combing through the archives again, his hair a bit flat on one side where he'd drifted off during a three-hour reading marathon, and his eyeliner slightly smudged beneath his right eye.

"Hmm, well, I was..."

He trailed off though, then shook his head. "Sure, sounds like a laugh. Let me log off and I'll be right there."

Val watched him go, before snapping out of it and starting to put his work away. Jack could be such a distraction. ...Such an excellent distraction. Leaving his coat behind, Val hustled a bit as he caught up to the other man.

"You're in good spirits," he grinned. "Care to share what's got you in such a good mood, Jack?"

"You don't keep me cooped, I'm here because it's where I want to be, Jack. A day off does sound fun though. Any time spent with you is a good time," Val said, climbing into the rig.

"And what will we have? Fish and chips?" Val suggested with a grin. "We could take a trip down the shore you know. It's not a far run from here."

"A date, you mean, Jack. You're describing a date," Val chuckled.

"I'm not protesting," Val assured her. "I'm all for a real date. Romance me, Captain, I'm game."

'You don't have to impress me, Jack- I'm already smitten," Val assured him. "I'll do you one better, how about a trip to the country club? Let's swing by the house, get our best suits on, and I'll show you what it means to date a Collingwood."

"I think you look divine now- Scrubbed up I'm certain I'll be fighting for your attention," Val grinned.

"My family has a standing reservation, and since I'm the only one in town this week, it's all ours," Val assured him with a smile, heading to the closet and picking through until he found something a bit more club friendly than his usual attire. ...Not that they'd ever turn him away.

Trading a leather coat for something a bit softer, he turned to give Jack a good look.

"What do you think?" he asked. "Little less black sheep, a bit more black tie, hmm?"

"You... Are perfection," Val grinned, crossing the room and tugging a little on Jack's suit jacket. "I'm half tempted to say fuck the club and just see how long it takes to peel this back off you..."

Grinning into the kiss, Val nodded as it broke.

"Mmm, fine. I can wait I suppose. ...Maybe. Let's take my car, hmm? The jaguar feels a bit more fitting, don't you think?"

"You think I was going to let you have the keys?" Val teased, leaning over and kissing Jack's cheek. "I've seen how you take corners, captain. You do it on two wheels."

Val laughed, revving the engine and flashing a smile.

"It's a bit of a trek, you don't mind though, right?" he asked as the gates opened and he headed out into the busy streets of London.

Val smiled at that, covering Jack's hand with his own, but keeping his full attention on the road as he started to drive them out of the city.

"Why don't you put on some music?" he suggested.

"Oh my god, it's like dating someone's grandfather," Val laughed, his smile bright and wide. "One day I'm going to get you into modern music, Jack. One day."

"Now you really sound like a granddad," Val laughed, shaking his head and grinning. "Modern music's not all bad."

"I'm sure I could find several," Val countered. "It's fine though, grandad. I won't ask you to turn off your music."

"Saying you're older than me is a bit of an understatement, isn't it?" Val replied, glancing over briefly and noting the look on Jack's face. "It doesn't bother me, but pretending it's not true doesn't do us any good, does it? You've lived several lifetimes more than me. You'll live many more once I'm gone. It's part of who you are, just as being the wolf is part of who I am. We have to let those things all be part of us as a whole, wouldn't you agree?"

"Jack, if I had an issue with your age, I promise you, it would have come up much sooner than now. ...I enjoy your company. I enjoy us. I'm happy, and a long while doesn't seem long enough," he assured the other man.

Val smiled on that, eyes on the road as he reached over and gave Jack's leg a squeeze.

"This time of year there's a lot of shellfish," Val replied thoughtfully. "Steak, always. The new chef is french, so I imagine there'll be some French delicacies on the menu as well," he added, smiling as they cruised through the countryside.

"Oh? Alright, lover, whatever you desire," Val chuckled, nodding as the club came into view up ahead.

"I'd be more than happy to spoil you," Val assured him, before handing the keys off to the valet and offering Jack his arm.
