This is Mateo and his child's apartment. It is a two bedroom one bathroom apartment in Magus Diaetam, and while cheap, is still quite functional. Mateo is glad to only have to pay 30 galleons a month for it.

Mateo is cooking pasta for his date meet up with Roy. Unfortunately, his kid couldn't be around because they had a sleepover next door, but he thought it was better this way, in case they got into some mischief. Some sauce spatters his apron. "Damn," he mutters. "Why you gotta do me like this, spaghet?" He wipes some sweat off his forehead as he serves the pasta with the sauce into a bowl, then sets it on his kitchen counter. There's a tiny table within the kitchen, where he could maybe eat. If not, in front of the tele they go.
Was he nervous for his date meet up? Yes, his heart pounded and he knocked on the door of what he hoped was the right apartment. He hoped he wasn't too dressed up, just wearing a simple outfit. He knew they were having dinner, but he didn't know what exactly they were having.

"Oh shit." He quickly unwraps the apron from his body, setting it carelessly on a chair. His cheek has a fleck of sauce from tasting it, somehow. The Slytherin rushes to the door, pauses to fix up his hair, then opens. He has a wide smile. "He Roy, Welcome to my abode. Come in, Come in," he adds, moving to the side so he can both hold the door open and let Roy through. So far so good, although his words could use work. "My kid couldn't be here- had a play date. So it's just us. I made spaghetti. I-it's in the kitchen. We can eat in there or in front of the tv, I don't mind either way."
His heart skips a beat when he sees Mateo, he’s so hot that it actually makes Roy’s cheeks get pink. “Oh that’s fine, I’m sure I can meet them another time,” he said and slid off his jacket, hanging it up. “Oh spaghetti? How did you know that’s my favorite?” He asked with a small grin, glancing at Mateo before seeing the sauce on his cheek and he chuckled. “You got some sauce on you,” he reaches up and wipe some it off with his finger, before licking it off. “Mm~ Spicy, I like it~”
-Stray Kids everyhere, all around the world Message Me – 06:13, September 18, 2018 (UTC)
Mateo actually isn't a fan of spice, but he thought, given their history and some knowledge he has about Roy, that he'd enjoy it spicy. Mateo has good tolerance anyways. "I don't know, I just thought- it's a good food date. Date food. Food, for a date." He coughs, trying to get the right words out. "Food for a gathering of old friends. There." His ears tingle when he feels Roy touch his cheek, and stomach flips when he sees him lick it. "So, uh, living room or kitchen?" He says quickly, trying not to stare.
The word date hung in the air, and Roy couldn’t help but be stuck on that. He noticed Mateo’s demeanor, and honestly? Roy can’t help but think it’s because of their past, and he wonders if Mateo feels awkward around him. “Living room, the couch is more comfy,” he said with a smile. He was trying his best to examine Mateo, yet at the same time trying not to be creepy.

"Right, living room it is." He grabs a plate and serves Roy, then passes it to him. "Here you go. You can head over there while I serve myself some too. Make yourself at home." Mateo then turns and focuses on his own plate, using the moment to rest from looking at the dude he ad seen a lot of in the past. He would be lying if he said he had no lingering feelings. The latino had never been very good at detatching feelings from relationships.
He takes the plate and heads over to the couch, sitting down and taking a bite of the spaghetti. He just takes a moment to look around the house, trying not to look at Mateo. He thought that he had gotten over their relationship, but being in his home had confirmed to Roy that he wasn't. How could he be? He didn't even get to say goodbye to Mateo, he just disappeared.
-Stray Kids everyhere, all around the world Message Me – 04:29, September 20, 2018 (UTC)
He grabs his plate and heads over, grabbing the remote as he goes and flipping the tv on. Phantom of the Opera fills the screen. "Oh shit yes! I freaking love this musical. I even love the movie. A lot of people hate on Gerard Butler for his singing voice, but honestly, I thought he did pretty well. The Phantom is supposed to be self-taught." Mateo eats some pasta. "The plot is a bit problematic but it's one of those things I can't help but love anyways." He glances at Roy and blushes. "Sorry, I know it's random but-" he smiles a bit "-I just love it."
He can't help but smile a little as he hears Mateo talking about it, the way his eyes sparkle and how excited he gets makes Roy's heart flutter a little. He then realizes he's staring when Mateo glances at him, making him look away and at the TV. "N-No no! It's fine, it's actually really attractive-" He choked at what he said, coughing a little. "U-Um! I like the movie too, but seeing the play in person is a lot more amazing and magical-" He added quickly, trying to save himself.
-Stray Kids everyhere, all around the world Message Me – 06:56, September 22, 2018 (UTC)
Oof, attractive. When it comes to these situations, there are only two ways he responds. Absolute awkwardness, or absolute confidence. He gives a sly smile. "Yeah, I find that a lot of people who enjoy phantom are attractive." Clearly, the latter won out in his head, likely due to the known territory (his home). "I've seen the Broadway show in New York. It's not something you can easily forget. It sounds so much better live."
Roy's face gets a little red, and he shoves a bite of the pasta in his mouth to keep himself from saying something stupid. He swallows, and needs to say something to prevent himself from looking stupid. "New York? Since when did you go there? And without me I might add," The sentence came out more sly than he had imagined, and was glad he didn't sound so embarrassed or flustered.

"It was a trip with my mom and my cousin. We do these trips all aroun the world, get to know cities with each other. We're close like that." He glances over at Roy, and eats some pasta. "Trust me, if I had been alone, I would've invited you." He smiles some. "And if I hadn't been thirteen at the time."
He chuckled a little at that, “Ah yes, very important factors,” he said and took a bite out of his pasta. “Maybe sometime I should take you to France, I’m sure you’d love it. It isn’t called the city of love for nothing,”
-Stray Kids everyhere, all around the world Message Me – 04:30, September 24, 2018 (UTC)
He raises an eyebrow. "Sometimes I wonder why you didn't just take me initially." He stops, realizing he might be hitting a sensitive topic. as f-ckbuddies, he really shouldn't have expected more. "But I'll ake it. ame a date and time, I'll be there." He continus eating his spaghetti, not looking at Roy.
Roy felt the pang in his chest at that, and was quiet as he ate his pasta. “Yeah, um. About that,” he said and glanced at Mateo. “I think an explanation is due,” he told him, a small sigh escaping his lips. “I-I don’t really know how to start honestly,”
-Stray Kids everyhere, all around the world Message Me – He glances. "Uh, you don't have to! It's just, if you want to. Really, no rush man. I get it, we weren't, yu know, much in those days. I mean friends but, yeah. You don' owe me anything." His pasta starts to taste a little cold, a sign that time is passing between them.
“N-No, I Owe it to you Mateo, especially since we had something... At least, I hope we did,” he said, setting his plate down on the coffee table. “The main reason I left so suddenly is because I had an accident.” He said, glancing at Mateo. Hesitating. “A werewolf accident.”
-Stray Kids everyhere, all around the world Message Me – His fork stops midway to his mouth. Shit, werewolf? He tries not to make any kind of bad expression tha could scare Roy away. "Oh...so....I'm sorry about that. That's very understandable, I didn't mean to joke," he says, forcing himself to smile because he didn't know what else to do. "At least it happened in an era where werewolves are more socially acceptable." He glances at Roy. "Assuming, that's wha you meant...? Being a .." he stops then continues. "You know, werewolf."
"It's alright, you didn't know," He told Mateo. "And yeah... I'm a werewolf because of that," He answered. "I just didn't know how to tell you, or confront you about it because I was scared. I was only 14, but that doesn't mean what I did was right," He said, looking into Mateo's eyes. "I shouldn't have just disappeared on you, I'm really sorry for hurting you," He said, placing a hand on Mateo's thigh.
-Stray Kids everyhere, all around the world Message Me – "You never hurt..." He trails off, getting red from Roy touching his thigh. Wha do I do, what do I do? He puts his bowl of spaghetti to the style, Peter kavinsky style. "UHhh..." he says, trying to form a sentence. He looks at Roy, takes in th fact that he had no spaghetti barrier, and leans forward enough to attempt to kiss him.
Roy waits for Mateo to finish his sentence, only he doesn't, and notices him leaning in. Roy swallows, should he kiss him back? What should he do? Before he can make a choice he feels Mateo's lips on his own, not moving for a moment since he was figuring out what to do. But, he decided to kiss him back, squeezing Mateo's thigh slightly in the process
-Stray Kids everyhere, all around the world Message Me – 04:05, October 1, 2018 (UTC)
Mateo is lost in the kiss, brought back by the gripping of his thigh. He breaks the kiss momentarily. "What- are you sure you want to do this?" His eyes keep straying to Roy's mouth, and his hand rests on his shoulder.
“Yes... Look, This is going to sound super cheesy and lame... But I’ve been thinking about the moment since the day I left,” he admitted, blushing a little. “I haven’t stopped thinking about you or us...”
-Stray Kids everyhere, all around the world Message Me – 04:42, October 2, 2018 (UTC)
Mateo resists the urge to gulp. "Ahhh....yeahhh..." He smiles, a feeling of giddiness welling up in his stomach. "I should admit, I always thought of you more than a hookup. I really like you. A lot. Not just for the sex, I mean, you're an all around stand up guy, no innuendo intended." He purses his lips. "I just need you to know...if we do this...I hope it's more than a fling thing." His ears get hot. It's tough admitting your feelings.
He sighs in relief when he hears that, “Mateo... I had no intention of this just being another one night stand, I just didn’t know how to get my feelings across. But, it makes me feel so happy to hear you say that,” he told him, feeling a weight lift off his chest. “I really like you too, and I want more with you than just a fling... I want a relationship,”
-Stray Kids everyhere, all around the world Message Me – 01:26, October 4, 2018 (UTC)
Oof, how to control this happiness. Bubbles of bliss rise and pop inside him, giving way to fireworks of feeling. He'd never had a sure thing relationship in his 19 years old life. "Good! I mean," his expression is a little bashful. "I agree. I'm not really sure how his whole dating thing works but..I' love to be your datemate. Officially. Not sure if this is how I should go about it bu I'm new to this whole steady relationship thing. Oh and uh, I feel I should mention I think monogamy is an outdated ruling system but I'm kind of a commited person so I don't care if you're nonmnogamous ut I probably will be. Monogamous." Rip, this went from sexy talk to me awkwardly ruining thins talk. Good going Mateo, well played.
He just listened to Mateo, a small smile on his lips as he spoke. Roy just studied him, his eyes and how they sparkled, the way his lips moved when he talked. Was this what it was like to be in love with someone? Because if so, it was great. "It's okay. I'm a monogamous person as well, I wouldn't want to share you with anyone else," He said with a light chuckle. "I guess we'll both have to see how this dating thing works out, huh?"
