circumitus: its people like u that make people like me go to rehab. he has a lazy eye for christ sakes. (your girlfriend is a south jersey whore)
From: [personal profile] circumitus
[This is something she's been putting off, between taking her sweet time to repair among everything else that's been going on lately. During the waking hours in which she wasn't asleep, and wasn't being plagued by dreams, Rey has been doing her patrols or working on making her apartment a livable place again. And that includes fixing the damned door that Nick broke down.

[Well, it's fixed. All of those appliances and furnishings and things? Also fixed. And now as Rey stands in the middle of her old, repaired apartment, she's revisited by a feeling of emptiness about the place. It's always been there, really. It wasn't like she ever
enjoyed living alone. Things just happened that way.

[Now she's here. The dreams have stopped, and she's faced with a different problem.]


Nick. It's Rey.

[That's how you start out a conversation, right? Damn, she's horrible at these things.]

So, um. Finished with the repairs on my old place. Not sure where you are right now, but I figured I could just grab my stuff from your apartment and... [You know.]

Just wanted to say thanks. For giving me a space to stay for a while.

[Rather than sleeping around trash all by herself. She can blame Nick for the door, but that was her own fault.]

circumitus: We know how you feel. (kid you're lost in the wheel)
From: [personal profile] circumitus
[Rey would readily beg to differ as to who's really to blame here, but she imagines they'd be arguing for a while over the matter.

[Falling into the replacement couch, she sighs, more focused on what Nick says after that pause than anything else. Her fingers over the phone pressed to her ear clamp a little as she thinks.]


Yes, it's been... nice.

[She just scoffs at his comment about Charlie.]

Not like the fish is a better talker. [The still-nameless fish that's surprisingly not dead yet.]

Don't want to intrude any more than I already have, though.

[Because that's totally what it is. An intrusion. Goddammit, Rey.]

circumitus: This is drunk and confused... (this is worse than naked and afraid)
From: [personal profile] circumitus
Are you sure?

[On one hand, she feels like Nick could probably use some space of his own after telling him about what she had seen in his dreams. But on the other, it feels like she's checking out at a time for him when he's still, most likely, in a terrible place. If there's ever going to be a good time for this sort of thing and, let's face it, there won't ever be.

[She taps her index finger over the back of her phone, glancing around at the furnished living area of her old apartment.]
Would you mind if I stayed? Wouldn't want to crowd your personal space or anything, but...

[It really was nice not being alone. In more than one way.]

circumitus: - XOXO dad (time to smoke my breakfast)
From: [personal profile] circumitus
[She can hear that smile, Nicko.]

Glad to have saved you the trouble.

[She stops to consider his suggestion, though.]

Wouldn't be so bad to relocate go someplace more spacious. If that would be all right with you, that is.

[Despite the fact that he's the one who brought it up in the first place. It can't hurt to be sure.]

circumitus: that's because you have standards... and i have a thing for guys that give me free drugs. (my dad brought home flowers)
From: [personal profile] circumitus
[Surprisingly, Rey hasn't lived alone all that much either. She'd spent four years living in Chicago with her father, with the frequent visits of her brother. Before that, she didn't even really have much of a home. She didn't know how well she would even adjust to this lifestyle. But it isn't that bad.]

Sure thing. Will just grab what's left at my place and prep for relocating. There's not that much stuff, anyway.

[She lives a pretty spartan lifestyle.]

See you soon, then.

[There just may be a slight hint of a smile on her face just then. Not that Nick can see, but it's there.]

[Most of Rey's things can be packed away into one box, so that's easy to leave behind while they sort out where to migrate to.

[Fortunately, there seems to be a couple availabilities left within the spiral. The pickings are slim, but she figures they're all the same, anyway. Anything seems better than a cramped apartment, in any case.

[As usual, Rey is seen apparently "unarmed", but she's always far from defenseless. This is just a stroll through the neighborhood -- no need to dress down in full armor or anything.

[Nick's demeanor is contagious, as Rey can't help but feel somewhat uplifted herself when she sees him.]


Hey.

Any ideas where you want to go?

[She sort of does, but she'd like to check with her... well, her roommate first.]

circumitus: tall, lanky, uses teeth when giving head, and runs like a giraffe. don't do it, man... (no i know her type)
From: [personal profile] circumitus
[Rey makes a face as well, hinting that there's not much favor on the prospect. Considering how she had spent the first years of her life in an underground facility, she could do without the daily reminder. Living in a cave city is already bad enough.]

Would rather avoid something like that as well.

[She hadn't checked out the new housing setup yet, herself, but it's good to know.

[Then she glances around at the other houses in the spiral.]
This place isn't so bad, anyway. I know a few people who live in this area.

[Meaning that she's visited it quite a bit.]

circumitus: ...and then i realized im still drunk. (thinking 'wow glad i'm not hungover')
From: [personal profile] circumitus
[Having visited this spiral enough times to remember who lives where at this point, she starts for the first vacant house she knows is still available.]

Yes. Could introduce you to them sometime, if you don't know them already.

[Rey knows how you make your rounds, Nick.

[Approaching one of the many oddly shaped houses, she glances to her friend.]


The two remaining houses here are identical, so if this one doesn't work out, we may as well look at the ones in the second spiral. I'm not picky, though.

[Hard to believe, I know.]

[If the wasteland Rey had been witnessed to in Nick's dream had been any indicator, she can believe him. While she can't say she's seen enough to know much about the world Nick hails from, she knows a nuclear disaster when she sees one. That's not something you overcome in one night, or even a few years.

[Taking a few steps inside the empty home, she sets the box down by the corner at the end of the short hallway, taking a gander at the interior design. It looks like what she expected, having been inside some of the four bedroom homes that were already occupied.]


It's almost a little too spacious. [Not that this is a bad thing. This place is even bigger than the two bedroom townhome where she used to live in Illinois.

[In spite of what she had just said, Rey folds her arms, her mouth curving.]
It'll be perfect. If it works for you, that is.

[It's important that they agree on this.]

[Whatever they'll be able to do with the extra rooms, Rey doesn't even know. At the very least, there's enough where they can both have their own privacy without even running into each other. Not that that's ever been a concern of Rey's.

[She ducks her head at Nick's compliment, waving a dismissive hand as she opens the door to one of the empty rooms and sneaks a peek inside. Stop that, dadbot! You're embarrassing her.]


I like it, and it's more than enough.

[Already she's thinking about what she can do with the extra rooms. Like converting one into a personal office, since Maketh wants her to do things like writing up reports now and everything.

[As she comes out of the downstairs bedroom, she casts a downward look.]
Thank you for this, by the way.

[For not letting her leave, more accurately.]

circumitus: Otherwise you'd be a dad by now. (thank god you're gay)
From: [personal profile] circumitus
[Knowing these two, they'll never admit it. But, also knowing them, there's no need for them to.]

Yes. [She says this in regards to the arrangement. It's a mutually beneficial one, in which they'll both get what they want out of it. That's something.]

All right. I'll hold the fort while you're gone.

[Though it seems Rey has already made up her mind where she wants to stay. Ground level, closest to the door. Most advantageous location in the event of home invaders, plus it's got a balcony. Nice.]

Date: 2016-05-30 04:05 pm (UTC)
circumitus: you started throwing frozen shot glasses at people and you kept saying "it's fine, they melt." (wave goodbye to your troubles)
From: [personal profile] circumitus
[By the time Nick returns, Rey has already unpacked most of her belongings and is sorting them out in her room. It doesn't take very long, as she isn't one to fuss over details when it comes to her personal environment. If she's got a place of her own where she can linger and sleep, she'll be a happy camper.

[She won't be making much use of a bed, either, having pushed it into the corner of the room and considers just dissembling it altogether. Which she does. That way she can have more space without a useless piece of furniture that she doesn't even use. She'll figure out some way to sneak it out without Nick's noticing.

[Once Nick is done with his thing, Rey will be in the living area, seated in a rather peculiar position on the couch. Sitting with her legs hanging over the back of it and her head on the cushion, looking at the room from an upside-down angle. She really gives no fucks, her fingers entwined with her hands resting on her stomach.

[Nothing strange about this at all.]

circumitus: Legit 2 miles, and purchased 7 half gallons. One for each of us. Intense. (we walked 2 miles)
From: [personal profile] circumitus
[Perhaps Rey is just feeling uncharacteristically carefree at the moment. It isn't often that she allows herself to just relax. Not just in general, but around someone else as well. Rather than her usual stiff postures, she's able to slowly ease into the comforts of her new structure.

[For once it seems like she actually has a place she can call home. Not a temporary arrangement, not a lonely quarters that means nothing more than a place with doors and walls. This is something else.]


Yes. [She nods, which is awkward from where she's sitting at the moment. Her eyes flick towards Nick as he seats himself next to her.] I think we've got something good here, and it's just... It's good.

[She feels good.]
