"It was our first date, my husband and I," Theodore said wistfully, stopping short of saying that it was also the first movie he'd ever seen, and taking another sip of wine. "So it's always been a bit special." He smiled fondly, turning his ring with his thumb for a moment. "Christmas holidays, and we were just a couple kids, running around London and with no idea we were in love yet," he added with a laugh, then leveled his wine glass at Hugh. "So yes, that means I first saw it in a movie theater, and I will thank you to not work out my age from that."
Theodore returned his glass to his lips once more. "Your mother either has very good taste, or she recognizes yours. I think either way it works out. And, I'm happy to be company so long as there is good wine and good conversation. And honestly, the conversation is enough. The wine is a bonus."
He thought about Hugh's next question for a moment. Sometimes he felt so disconnected from the past, from everything that happened before Jamie. Childhood, his father, his mother, Sebastian...what to say about "home?" "Wiltshire was...forgettable. I can't say I miss it very much. My only real family lives in Germany: an aunt, two uncles. And we were never truly close. Everything I have is here. I've been back, on and off, but I made my home on this side of the Atlantic a long time ago."
