Got a secret, better keep it


SECRET relationship;


The fact that you're in a relationship with this person isn't public knowledge. Actually, no one knows about it except for the people involved. Maybe you guys are just private like that; on the other hand, it may be a necessity to keep things a secret from others. Maybe you're both team mates, and others on the team would give you grief, or you're not suppose to be dating, or you're not the type to usually date and you're only testing the waters. Perhaps it's the combination of you two, possibly an odd couple, that would bring some controversy or some teasing. Or, you know, you could not want to deal with friends and relatives being busybodies. Your reasons are your own.

Are you content with stealing moments to be together as a couple? Do you want to make your relationship known and the fact that you can't drives you batty? Remember, there are lots of benefits to dating in secret. You can be yourselves completely, away from prying eyes, and get to know each other better as potential longterm romantic partners. In a way, it's ideal.

...still, do you ever wish you could scream from the rooftops how much you care for your significant other?

[It's remarkable, really, the change in Aaron's face when he sees Faramir walk in. A moment ago, he had been been a hard-eyed, dark figure, smoking quietly in a back corner of the dive bar with his legs stretched out under the table. Even with his jacket off and his hood down, Aaron had looked unapproachable. None had tried, put off by the lines of his face, the thinness of his mouth, the hunch of his shoulders.

But he sees Faramir and recognizes him, and the hardness leaves Aaron's face; his eyes light up, and his mouth pulls into a smile -- amused, certainly, but not mocking, and no less glad for it. Even the smoke that had hung in the air around him seems to clear, though he doesn't move, except to raise his head.
]

So, you did come.

[Faramir had had every reason not to. He was still in Locke City's police force, the one hell-bent on sniffing out reincarnates like Aaron, the people whose powers were drawing public attention, the people who were changing. Even if the police had been neutral, meeting with Dr. Aaron Strider still wasn't the best idea for an officer. The man had a reputation: the clinic might not cater exclusively to the criminal element and might not be affiliated with any one gang, but shady characters came to call, and Aaron flatly refused to share what he knew about them with the police. There were rumors -- unsubstantiated as of yet -- that people disappeared in that clinic, and though Aaron Strider had never been successfully convicted of drug possession or distribution, the force had their suspicions.

All in all, most of the people they mutually know are quite sure that secretive, shady Dr. Strider is up to no good at all. Faramir is one of the small handful of respectable folk who know different.

Also, this bar is dark, dirty, and dangerous inside and out. Faces are unclear and half-shadowed at best; as long as Faramir's in plainclothes and doesn't draw attention to himself, no one will recognize him.

I'm glad.

...I hope you didn't have trouble finding it.

[ This isn't really Pepper had expected anything to go. Then again, Pepper should have learned to stop expecting anything the day Tony went missing and came back a superhero. Pepper should have stopped expecting anything because of Tony in general.

Even this seems to be a bit beyond that, though. There's a thrill Pepper won't deny about unplanned meetings and knowing what others don't. Given the nature of Nate, he's not always around. Pepper's gotten very good at adjusting his schedule to meet him when he is.

Today there's no need to. Pepper's already at his Manhattan home when he gets the telltale ping from his phone. A smile crosses his face and all that's left to do is send a text in confirmation and wait.
