Who: Bruce Wayne and Carrie Kelley What: Serious conversation and stuff WarningsI wish Nope!
Bruce had considered his invitation carefully. Part of him had wanted to go to her and comfort her where she was, but there were other things to consider. With so much change, there was comfort in normality, and there was little in their lives that was more normal than a cup of Alfred's tea.
Waiting for her arrival had been a source of some anxiety. He was well-aware of everyone's discomfort. They had reason to be unhappy with him. He was handling all of these relationships with extreme caution. He was especially careful with Carrie; he knew how hot her temper ran. The worry that she wouldn't come tugged at the back of his mind. Regardless, he sat motionless as he waited, watching the steam rise from the pot of tea.
