only

young and naive still

thanksgiving for silas has been quiet as of late unsurprisingly. over the past few years, ever since he had divorced his last wife, and that his sons were everywhere but san diego, silas had been pretty much on his own. it wasn't too bad, given that he had long since gotten used to his own company. he'd treat himself to a fancy meal, before going home and crawling into bed with a full stomach, without any sort of remorse whatsoever. it was almost as if he had no family to spend thanksgiving with, but the commissioner had gotten used to looking out for no one but himself, and caring for himself more often than not.

but interesting things were happening for him this year. one of his officers had invited him to spend thanksgiving with him and his family. silas didn't know officer pride that well, besides seeing him at work, thanks to him being unable to speak with the young crowd in general. however, he was trying to change that, and was only too happy to accept the younger man's invitation. even if he no longer was raising a family of his own, he could dote on woody's own children, and meet his wife as well. dressed in casual clothing, in what he hoped was not leaning towards formality whatsoever, silas made his way to woody's place after making sure that he smelt nice and looked presentable.

feeling quite out of place, but determined to see the evening through, silas rang the doorbell to woody's home. he fidgeted slightly, almost dropping the bottle of wine that he had brought for them, but managed to steady his grip on it. he managed a small smile when the door was pulled open, and there stood woody. "hello, woodrow," the grizzly man said, trying to not be awkward, and wondering if he was failing already. hopefully, that wouldn't be the case this evening; silas has had enough of adding on to his list of fuckups on his track record. "happy thanksgiving."


lmao he is so awkward butter him up

Thanksgiving was a time for family. Sally had been working hard to make a wonderful meal and Woodrow did what he could to help her even if it was keeping the kids out of trouble and away from the kitchen so she could focus. This year, they were going to have someone else at the table. Silas Forsteri, his boss, was going to come over.

Woodrow didn’t know him well, but he knew enough to know that he didn’t seem happy and he seemed to be estranged from his own family. The man didn’t want him to spend Thanksgiving alone and was hoping that spending time this Thanksgiving with someone would encourage him to reach out more.

The kids grew excited once the doorbell rang and Woodrow quickly went to answer it. ”Evening, Silas.” He offered the man a soft smile, thrilled that he actually showed up. Reaching over, he hugged the man and gave him a quick two pats on the back before pulling back. ”Happy Thanksgiving! Come in, meet everyone.” He could tell his boss was nervous about meeting everyone, but he was certain he would have a good time once he gave it a chance.

”This is Eli,” he said ruffling his sons head before moving to his daughter. ”And this little one is Lyla.” He smiled as his son seemed more eager to welcome Silas than his daughter who gave the man a little wave from behind his leg. ”She’s a little shy.” Resting his hand on top of Lyla’s head, he wanted her to know that he was there to protect her from anything that was terrifying to her. ”You’ve met my wife before, right?” He questioned realizing the man had a bottle of wine in his hand.

”We can go put that in the kitchen for now.” Woody led Silas to the kitchen where he reintroduced Sally and him just in case either one had forgotten and then Woody and Silas headed back out into the living room. ”You want to watch the game?”

silas felt like a charity case. a wandering stray that was being taken in for the time being. as much as he scoffed at the thought of indeed being someone to look at with sympathy, he couldn't help but be thankful at woody's offer to spend thanksgiving with him, even if the man was his boss. it was a good thing, he told himself sternly. he had been by himself for too long after those flopped marriages, and constantly diving himself into work was unhealthy, even if he kept himself fit. he tried to not scowl as he fidgeted, waiting for woody to open the door on him. thanksgiving was not a time to start becoming bitter, and revisiting old areas of his memories he'd honestly rather forget.

two children had appeared next to their father, gazing at him through bright, curious eyes. the grizzly commissioner immediately felt a pang of discomfort and nostalgia, suddenly aware of how old he was. he remembered once upon a time, when his oldest son had been as tiny as this. giving both children a cheery wave, silas stretched his hand out for eli to shake. "a firm handshake. i like that," he chuckled. stretching back up, he nodded. "i do recall her visiting the station once to give you lunch," he went on, nodding, and remembering the tall, ginger-headed woman.

reintroducing himself to sally, silas left the wine with her, and followed woody into the homey room. "what game is on?" he asked, settling himself next to woody on the sofa. he was outdated when it came to sports, not exactly bothering with them on a regular basis. "you've got a nice home," silas said, nodding, and thinking of the tiny apartment in which he lived in. "how long have you and sally been married?" it dawned on him that he didn't really know woody on a personal basis. they were colleagues, but that was almost pretty much about it, thanks to how cynical the commissioner could get on a regular basis. maybe it was time he changed that.

He practically exploded with pride as he watched his boy shake Silas’ hand. Woodrow wished that he could have been the one to say that Eli learned how to shake hands from him, but it was all Sally. Sally was the one who spent time with the kids and even though he had been working to spend more time with them, he had been working on having more fun with them than anything else. ”He does have quite a grip on him.” A smile tugged on his lips as his hand rested on the top of his sons head before he patted his back and watched him run off.

”The Bears and Packers.” They weren’t exactly teams he cared about, but he liked to keep up to date with how the other teams were doing. ”You keep up with football at all?” With the question, Woody wasn’t sure that he did, but maybe it only depended on if his favorite teams were playing.

”Thank you. Sally does the decorating.” She had an eye for vintage pieces which, he thought, added a nice touch to their home. ”I’m not sure where she finds some of the stuff we have around here.” For a while it seemed they had a new piece of furniture or decoration every time he turned around, but that was when he wasn’t around as much which typically meant he wasn’t listening as well either.

A smile tugged on his lips as he thought about the years he’d spent with Sally. They had their ups and their downs, but they always managed to pull through it together. ”Ten and half years.” He wouldn’t have it any other way. ”You have anyone special in your life?” It seemed now was as good as time as any to get to know his boss because conversations like this didn’t happen very often.

he could see woody swelling with pride at his compliment, and had to look away to hide the smile on his face. every parent should be proud of their kids, regardless of accomplishment, and he was indeed proud of his own for now being able to make their way through life without parental help. his three boys were all grown up, living separate lives, and as for his two stepdaughters, silas has not heard from them ever since his second marriage dissolved. why would they want to keep in contact with him anyway? he hadn't been an awful stepfather, but they just didn't have a reason to speak with him any longer, he reckoned.

the grizzly commissioner laughed, shaking his head. "unfortunately, no," he said. "it's not really my cup of tea, though i do like watching the little bit of drama unfold here and there." he only caught the game in passing, or casually like how he was doing in woody's home, hoping for a little bit of fire to catch his attention momentarily so that he could feel amused. "well, sally has good taste." traditional pieces, but homey all the same, complimenting the home perfectly. his own home was simple, silas never really having much of an opinion when it came to decorating.

at the simple question of whether or not he had someone special in his life as well, silas' smile became jaundiced, dark eyes narrowing. "i had two," he said, his tone neutral, but his eyes telling a completely different story. he tended to get slightly iffy whenever talk about his ex spouses came up, but given how much he kept it quiet, the resentment for them had did nothing but build up continuously over there years. as for now, he wasn't too overly sure if things were alyssa were going to bloom into something long lasting, and he wasn't going to risk it either. silas had been through enough romance, he was quite satisfied with being on his own as of late.

Their conversation took a turn when Woodrow clearly asked a wrong question. Silas’ eyes narrowed and his smile was no longer as friendly as it was moments beforehand. His tone made him think that he wasn’t completely angry about the question, but he was lost in thought.

”It’s none of my business,” he said as he focused on the game only to see yet another bad call causing him to shake his head. ”Would you like a beer?” Dinner was almost ready, but Woodrow thought it might help pass the time or more so get past the question he probably shouldn’t have asked.

Eli came in a little later, his dark eyes looking up at him as he asked if he could stay in the room and watch the game too. Nodding, Woodrow moved over a little bit allowing the little boy to climb up beside him. ”Are you into any sports?” Football wasn’t his cup of tea, but maybe there was another sport that was more his style.

it was a fact that he did not discuss his personal life so readily with anyone, and certainly not his colleagues. it dawned on him that even though he was indeed woody's boss, silas didn't think that that sort of status would prevent him from actually befriending his officer. he was not comfortable with divulging about his failed love life, but honestly, he didn't really have anyone to turn to about this either. before he could elaborate further, woody was now offering him a beer. "actually, that would be great, thanks," replied silas, a small smile brightening his weathered features.

"soccer isn't too shabby," he remarked. "but i don't follow it." the man really should probably get into sports more, but he just never had the heart for it. looking at eli, who was no longer paying attention to them, but his eyes glued to the game, silas chuckled. he couldn't really remember his own kids being enthralled by it, but then again, he was too busy trying his best to drill them into being perfect to the point of him forgetting how to be a good father.

"i can't remember my sons being as young as him," he said, nodding towards eli. "it's all so long ago." all three of them were grown up, with their own lives and families. to him, they would always be his little ones, but it was still quite the difficult pill to swallow.

Eli was absorbed into the game. He watched every move that was made. Woodrow wouldn’t be surprised if he asked them to play football when he was old enough. He loved the sport and wanted to soak it all in. So typically, when Woodrow was watching a game Eli was nearby.

”How old are they?” Woodrow hoped that he wouldn’t forget his kids being this young. He loved watching Lyla draw and walk around pretending to be one of the Disney princess, typically Elsa or Anna at the moment. He loved watching Eli play sports and build things out of the blocks that he had. Woodrow knew that one day they would grow out of some things which is why he held on like he did. It was why he made an effort to be home more. He already felt like he was missing out on too much.

A little while later, Sally came in announcing that the dinner was ready. ”You ready to eat?” He questioned as he stood up. Even though he wasn’t asking them, the kids pipped up they were and quickly headed into the dining room. Woodrow couldn’t help but smile. ”If we don’t hurry they might eat without us.”

silas' frowned. he had three sons form his first marriage, so. "the youngest is about twenty-three, i think. then twenty-six, and thirty." he was certain that he had gotten the numbers right, it has been quite some time since he had last heard from them. all of them lived out of san diego, and he was not expecting to see them anytime soon. they had their own lives to live now, work to go to, families to raise and all. as easy as it was for silas to be on his own, the commissioner wondered if this was the sort of life he wanted to continue to live.

"yeah," he replied, getting up from his seat, beer in hand. he watched as woody's kids ran ahead of them, and his face scrunched up trying to remember how young his own sons were. he couldn't remember giving them so much leeway and freedom. but then again, he had not been the most easygoing dad around them either.

"i do hope that you spend a lot of time with them," silas said with a chuckle as he sat down to eat. he nodded towards the kids, who were already digging in. woody had a great family, a happy one. he was trying to not stray towards work talk, which was what he was generally good at, and nothing more. here he was trying to step out of his comfort zone, and get to know his employee better. "i didn't really do much of a good job with mine, so don't make the same mistakes i did," he went on, his tone neutral, his eyes flickering towards eli and lyla. "they're good kids."

Woodrow watched as Silas struggled to remember how old his kids were. His face fell slightly as nodded figuring it would be best not to talk about it anymore. The man felt bad for him. Family meant a lot to Woody and even though it took him getting shot to realize how much they meant to him, he was glad they did. The older man didn’t seem to have that experience. Now he hoped that he was find that change and try and connect with them.

Heading into the dinner room, he sat down and started to fill his plate as the kids went ahead and dug in. As he watched them, he wondered if they were even chewing and tasting the food or just swallowing it because they were so starved. ”I spend as much time as I can with them.” At least he did now. He was doing his best to make up for the missed time. Woodrow didn’t want his kid’s artwork to always have him at work while they were off having fun anymore that had been upsetting to see.

His eyes flicked to his boss and quickly to his children who were truly enjoying the meal in front of them. It wasn’t going to be long before they would be asking for seconds at this rate. ”They are good.” They were the best kids he could ask for. ”Sir, I don’t mean to step out of line, but you can make up with yours.” Woody treaded carefully, not wanting to upset Silas, but he felt it needed to be said. ”I’m sure they would like to have their old man around.” For a moment, he locked eyes with him then turned towards the food and grabbed the plate full of turkey offering it to Silas so he could pick his piece.

to know that woody was now at least making the effort to come home and spend time with his family made the old commissioner smile warmly. here was a changed man, one that tried to not let work cross over too much into his personal life. he knew of the long hours woody used to pull, when he was up to his ears in a difficult case. and he knew the strain that sort of thing would take when it came to a family his wife would be upset, and his young children would have been without a father to play ball with, or come to their recitals. woody had been adamant in not going home earlier when it came to work, but now seeing this change, silas could not help but be proud of the man.

he looked up at woody's words, raising his eyebrows. there was a long silence as the commissioner contemplated his colleague's words, before nodding gravely. "oh, don't worry about that." he waved his fork, shaking his head. this wasn't work. this was from one man to another, and even he could see that. it was something that needed to be said, and woody could not have said it any better. "you are right." there was some degree of truth to woody's words that he found hard-pressed to deny.

silas helped himself to some of the turkey, looking thoughtful. "what should i do? should i just go over and visit them?" or invite them to san diego? either way, he would have to make the first move if he was going to get anywhere with his sons. "it's not like i can up and attend their recitals." he let out a dry chuckle. goodness, he was terrible at this, but he was trying, at least.

Woodrow was not an expert in making up with his family. Yes, he had accomplished it, but the years hadn’t passed for him like they had for Silas. Glancing to Talia, he looked to her for any advice she might be able to offer him. She would be better at giving advice than he was.

”Visit them,” he told him with a shrug, not sure exactly what the situation was, but he figured that would be a start. ”Or try and call them.” Cutting up his turkey, Woodrow took a bite of it and admired just how delicious it was. ”Start by reaching out to them and see where that leads.” No matter what happened, it would be the start he needed to move forward in his relationship. ”I’m sure there is something they’d want to involve you in.” Wasn’t there always? Woodrow would still talk to his dad about things. He was sure that Silas’ kids felt the same way.

He enjoyed the food there was to offer and watched the kids continue to devour their food. ”Do you want another beer?” Woodrow asked, waiting to get up until he had an answer.

he was awful at this, but figured that woody could give some input on how he could improve his relationship with his family. this was important to the commissioner, as he was at a loss himself on what to do. his relationship with his sons, especial his youngest ones, were rather strained. it wasn't that he had been a terrible father, but he most certainly had been very strict with them. he loved them fiercely, but only realised too late that he had done too much. shadowing them, restricting them, it took silas two failed marriages to realise that. perfection was not everything, and try as he might to want to reconcile, to make up for being shitty, he had no idea where to begin.

silas nodded slowly. those were good suggestions. he made a note of all of them. "i could...i could try that," said the older man hesitantly. it was going to be quite something to call them up, and ask if he could visit. but would they really want him around? let alone him contacting them? it was a shot, and while it was not guaranteed success, he could try. he felt silent, his eyes thoughtful as he continued to eat. "this is good turkey," complimented silas, sparing a smile towards woody's sweet looking wife, talia.

"yeah, yeah, i do." and the night passed, with silas enjoying the company of both woody and his wife. after when it seemed like it was getting really late, he excused himself, thanked woody for the meal, and set off for home. there was a tiny spring in the man's step as he entered his home, a thoughtful frown creasing his brows. there was a chance, he noted. a chance that he was now willing to take for his currently estranged family.
