Hannibal had been planning on his own meal, but that had been assuming that Jono would be out of the house.

He frowned slightly and checked the clock. "Weren't you going to open the Boards today?"

Jono wasn't pacing around the living room, exactly.

The correct word would be stalking. Jono was stalking back and forth, less like a man in thought and more like a caged wildcat. There was a sort of feral edge in his eye as he looked up at Hannibal, then tilted his head a bit, hiking his shoulders up in a shrug.

//Figured I can do it on Sunday,// he said. //For th'band. Got nothing planned today, really, and I'm not exactly in a theatrical mind today anyway.//

Jono paused; not in his stalking, but a brief hesitation before replying, glancing Hannibal's way as he picked through his thoughts for words.

//Anxious,// he settled on. Because it had a good many meanings, especially where he was concerned, and it didn't involve just flat-out saying something like 'predatory.' //A very anxious mind.//

Okay, now Jono stopped his walking, shoulders rising and falling a little in something that was less a shrug, and more a vague approximation of an inhale and exhale.

//The usual suspects crawling around in my head,// he muttered. //The Boards are a fine hobby, but they don't mean anything. I'm not making a difference. I'm not even doing what I was made for, here.//

What he was best at?

What he was pushed to become?

He wanted to kick up hell and light fires, but he wasn't about to say as much. Hannibal came around to face him, and Jono looked off to the side, brow furrowing a little.

//I need to move,// he settled on. The prowling around the room had probably attested to as much on its own, granted. //I need to challenge myself, make a bloody difference, something. Not sit around in an office in a theatre waiting for some kind of muse to descend to whisper in my ear what musical I should try to direct next.//

//Not much for chess right now,// Jono muttered, eyes finding Hannibal's again. //And I probably should care more about what kind of work Logan would put me to, but so help me, I don't think I'd be able to stop myself if some bigoted preak were to utter the word 'mutie' within earshot.//

His hands clenched a little just thinking about it.

It was one of those days.

//Probably should take to a punching bag or something and work some of this off.//

Jono blinked. Not a confused blink. Not even just a natural blink that came from being more or less human and just happening to have eyes. A slow, deliberate, thoughtful sort of blink, a kind of 'tell me more' and 'I think I know where you're going with this,' all in not quite so many words. It would have been best accompanied by a slow inhale, but Jonothon was working with what he had, here.

//A list,// he echoed, and then cocked an eyebrow upward. //Do tell.//

Jono rolled his eyes a little at that last one, because honestly, Hannibal, but tilted his head slightly all the same.

//Find me a challenge, out of that lot.//

He needed to do something. Needed to... do...

He was itching to bloody his knuckles up somewhere.

Date: 2017-03-23 04:26 pm (UTC)
furnaceface: (Since You Said Please)
From: [personal profile] furnaceface
//Have you?//

Well, then Jono was going to smile right back, a slight uptick in what was left of one cheek, a little crinkle around one eye. It wasn't necessarily a pleasant smile, even by Jonothon's standards.

//Do tell.//

furnaceface: (Awright)

//Bodyguards are easy, unless they're superhuman,// Jono replied, waving a dismissive hand. //They don't even need to know I'm there.//

Though if they knew they were complicit in the man's crimes, Jono might have to make sure they did.

Yeah, he was in that sort of mood, today.

Jono looked thoughtfully at Hannibal, at that.

That did sound like a challenge. It sounded, in fact, like exactly the sort of stupid thing he'd be thumped for doing by anybody from Emma to Karla, and most people in between.

//Is this the world where we were doing the summer reading, by any chance?//

He was kind of fond of that one.

//Well, there's half your problem,// Jono muttered. //Bloody Florida.//

Even Jonothon had his biases.

//Bodyguards with psionic abilities aren't even going to be new for me,// he added, //though it'll be interesting to see the differences between these and the Blood.//

//Business proposition?// Jono's eyebrow inched upward slightly. //I don't exactly look the part of a businessman, myself. Would I be playing bodyguard as well, then?//

furnaceface: (Since You Said Please)
From: [personal profile] furnaceface
Jono raised an eyebrow, allowed himself a moment of vague amusement at that.

//Well, did you want to be my bodyguard, then?//
