[ Robert side-eyes Joseph, looking almost alarmed. There's nothing inherently suspicious about asking to sit at the table, is there?
Perhaps it's just the panic that there is something to be suspicious about, in something that seems so innocent.
But sitting at his -- albeitly rarely used -- kitchen table sounds...pretty okay, as far as requests go. It forces them to sit and talk, but it also establishes and forces boundaries between them. Keeps them from getting too close.
Robert gulps down another wave of margarita and shrugs. ]
Shit, last time someone wanted to sit me down at the kitchen table for a talk, my parents found my weed stash in my bedroom. Kinda hard to believe I'm not the one in trouble here.
[ So, you know, approximately two centuries ago.
Robert pulls a chair out from around the corner nearest to Joseph -- he doesn't want to sit next to him, but he also doesn't want to sit across from him, either. ]
