Jack would later deal with the realization that Kip and Kenna would always be closer to siblings than she would be with him, but they also had years on each other. Jack couldn't catch up and it wouldn't be fair to try. She had her life and Kip had his.

Luckily, James was there to keep them all on track. She snorted a bit and glanced over at the indignant Hayes man, offering him a sympathetic smirk. She stood up and grabbed her drink, reaching out to clap a hand on Keiran's shoulder as she followed James to another spot, dropping into the seat and finishing off her drink. "I'm sure you've kept up with the team in the papers. What else could you need to know?"

Which, of course, left Kenna with Keiran. She shrugged, grinning almost sheepishly. "Honestly was just trying to move past that bubble of tension between you lot before it popped. What with Jack acting all tough and Kip all secretive and Potter all... Potter."

As James settled in and Jack asked the obvious question, he frowned. It took a few moments and a long drink for him to get the words out. "I want to know how they've been since what happened to Robin." Weirdly enough, he couldn't even think of anything cheerful to say to make things easier.

Keiran lifted an eyebrow, though he chuckled a little at her explanation. "I did mean before," he pointed out. "That is, before we started that whole... game." He shook his head at the idea of it being a game at all, quite convinced that it had been a grand mistake for them to do it at all. They had learned a thing or two, that was true, but nobody seemed happy about it. Though Kenna was pretty good at pretending to be alright, it seemed.

Still, he shrugged, leaning froward on his elbows as his arms crossed over each other. "I did talk to a couple people about the match idea. I was thinking we should see about getting the Falcons to be the other team. Jack would probably jump at the chance for a rematch considering how our last game against each other went."

Catching up with people who had been important to her and had become distant was becoming an old game for her. It used to be that she spilled everything, admitted all the hell she had been through they had never seen, tried to carve out a new place for them in her life that was supported by the truths they had not known. But then they left again. She had learned well enough. Wait long enough and they would be gone once more. She was no longer interesting in telling a long tale to someone who wouldn't be around for the resolution.

Not to say she wasn't hopeful, or happy to see them again. So many times, it was a confirmation they had not died, as that was often a very real possibility. She surely would have heard if James had, but the fear was that the James that was familiar to her may have died. Fortunately, he seemed staunchly unchanged. Grown, a little less loud, but still a smirking, joking arse - in the best ways of course.

His question, therefore, didn't fit the James Potter smirk nor his usual line of jokes. She wet her lips and went in for another drink. She'd need it.

"Not sure," she admitted. "We didn't talk much about it. Found him, got home, dealt with it each our own way." She buzzed her lips together, trying to keep it casual. "I think Avery's been doing better. She's taking care of his dragon. And... making new friends." Jack wasn't sure what Teddy was to Avery. Maybe James knew and would catch on and fill her in. "And Keiran is... absorbed. With Hogwarts, his kids. I don't know that he's given himself a chance to think much about him."

Kenna was glad to be apart of something that Keiran was absorbed in, straightening up with purpose as their conversation turned to the match. She cocked her head at his words and then the memory hit her. "Wait a second - I remember that match! I was training to be commentator! Holy shit, that was a trainwreck! I remember that!"

James didn't make the connection between Robin's widow and his godbrother, but that was probably for the best. He would have been too intrigued and would inevitably have stuck his nose where it didn't belong. Months later, however, he would be incredibly invasive, though partly at the blonde's own request. For the time being, however, he just frowned a little despite nodding in understanding. "I know it's been a long time, but the team was... everything, for a while." He smiled a little at that, and not even ironically. Except then it changed into a smirk. "I can't help the fact that my articles are often Falcons-biased."

Kenna's words took Keiran by surprise, as he hadn't even thought to wonder if she had been there to see it. Of course she had. His humiliation would know no end when it came to his generation, even with their age difference. He knew she had to be younger, though he had never asked. "I... really wish you didn't," he said, a chuckle escaping despite himself. "That was truly horrifying. I've never again been that much of a mess, I swear."

"You can't help it because we keep winning," Jack said, punctuating the boast by finishing off her drink and pushing it away with a smirk. This was the Jack Dyllan that would have existed if Vito had never been created or found, if she had never met Chase and Andrew, if PA had never sucked her into a world where she was so hyper-aware of those in need. Had she been free to pursue Quidditch fully, her life would be so much less complicated and secure.

And she wouldn't have met all the people who had changed her life. For better or for worse.

"Just..." she said, picking her words carefully. "Don't make yourself into a familiar face just to run off again. Or I'll... kick your arse."

Kenna couldn't stop laughing. The connection alone was so strange to consider - that she had actually sort of known him for so long without really knowing him - but the match itself was impossible to recall without a fit of laughter following. Because it was so bad. She waved a hand and said, "No, it's fine. Little, what, second year me was just happy to be watching attractive older boys playing Quidditch, no matter how shit the match itself was."

Well, that answered the question Keiran had sort of thought but never fully wondered: Kenna's age. He was right about her being younger, obviously, but he'd never really known what the difference was. And that sort of thing didn't matter so much except there were just a number of things about her that he'd become curious about, even though he'd never meant to. Of course, just as he went to take another drink, she finished the sentence and he stopped with the glass halfway to his mouth. An eyebrow lifted, arching curiously at her choice of words. Amused but doing his best not to feel overly flattered by it, Keiran looked down at his drink and smirked a little before finally knocking the rest of it back.

"So were you more of a Gavin fan? Or Albus?" Because obviously that wanker of a Weasley wouldn't be named. And if she did he'd just write it off. But at least it was a joke, and one she didn't have to answer if she didn't want to. And, more importantly, it ensured that the focus was away from him. Ah, even better: "That is, I imagine you were rooting for Gryffindor?" Safer, that.

James, unsurprisingly, was also grinning. But Jack was right to be wary. "Things were... rough for a while. I guess I just hit a point where my cousins were settling into big office jobs or were healers up at the school or whatever. Felt like I needed to work somewhere more stable. More safe. I'm not sure I regret it, but I do miss playing that regularly. Believe it or not, the other sports writers don't seem eager to play pick-up games."
