She nodded, it was silly od them to risk their lives everyday to get medicine for other. “… Ye…” She couldnt finish

"I appologize, but you already know.  I’m not the most hopeful of the bunch you could have been paired with.  I think we make a good team though."

He gave her a quick smile.  

She looked down and nodded befpre seeing his smile. “Okay…Yeah. Um. Im going to sleep now… So you can wait out here some more… Adios.” She said softly and left, going to her room and laying on the most uncomfortable bed.

Earl held back a small scoff.  He already mentioned he was heading to bed too to rest up for tomorrow.  Still he watched her walk off before he found another to take his place.  

Soon enough, he was on his own little bunk and with a small sigh, he closed his eyes.

Might as well.  I would like to see the strange things that flow from your mouth when you have little restraint.  -Not like Earl is going to be too insulted.  Aaron has nothing on him-

image

Of course I can.  -Earl gives a quick shrug-  I could be anything.  Hmm… It usually is in those sort of situations, wouldn’t you say?  I’m fairly powerless and here you are tying me up…  would make sense and saves from therapy.  -He arches an eyebrow, taking another sip-  Don’t blame me for your communication issues.

Never a straight answer from you.  -From the way Earl’s downing the drinks, he’s planning on it for himself-

Maybe if I keep drinking at this rate. [He briefly looks at how much he’s already drank from his glass, only to shrug it off and continue.]

Be my guest, then. Then you pick it; you’d be the one havin’ to use it. [He smiles a little too innocently for how that sentence sounds, giving Earl a wink.] Don’ blame me just because you can’t carry yourself to bed.

image

I’ve no idea what you’re talking about; my answer wasn’ curved.

Is anything going to stop you?

-Earl throws the other a small smirk, entirely too comfortable with this conversation-  We’ll use colors then. Red is stop, yellow is uncomfortable.  -Earl responds with a snort-  Because most normal people walk.  Next time, just ask.  -Not that he would have listened-

Curved enough to avoid the question with a “maybe.”

Of course you just couldn’t resist ruining it. And then you had to record it for whatever reason. Blackmail, maybe? It’s not all that great, I’ll tell you that.

-twirls the umbrella and starts walking back where he came- -he’s wet and grumpy now it’s best to just head inside-

Enjoy some dancing in the rain, I guess.

Eh?  Ruin?

image

-That was a completely different reaction from what Earl was use to and seen.  It takes a moment for his mind to process it before he starts jogging to the other-

Wait a tick, where did that come from?

I apologize for causing you distress.  I didn’t think this would be your reaction.

Body shield?  Dancing monkey?

I swear if you booby trapped your own room…  -It looks like Earl did-  well it’s not going to really work if I say…sent nudes of you to North Korea’s government.  I need enemies that know you personally.

image

-Earl just simply smiles-  I’m sure not at anytime, though the sediment is appreciated.  Oh, Conan?  -He glaces down at the pup-  I’ve never seen him act aggressive unless playing tug of war.  I’m sure he’ll be fine and if not, I’ll only be a day visitor.

You did say before a distraction would be good for me.

You’re about as entertaining as a dancing monkey.

I can’t let someone get away with stickin’ their nose where it don’ belong, now can I? [though the mention of sending nudes to North Korea does make him thankful he wasn’t drinking anything at the moment, oh my] You wouldn’ find that of all things anyway.

image

Hmm, can’t be much of a host if I’m working, but even so. Hmm, I doubt Roco would mind him and he wouldn’ be able to get through Diablo’s fence…as long as he doesn’ annoy the cat he won’ have any issues.

It’s still true, too.

-Earl makes a quick sad face-  Not more so?

Haha…  Then answer me this, would it be a quick death in anger or a slow calculated death.  -Like Earl would know anyone from North Korea, let alone any government.  If he showed it to anyone, they would just see a naked person, not a nation-  What would I find?

…  I’m not going to go if I’m going to be a bother.  That’s the least I would want at this point.  Oh?  Roco?  -Earl remembers Aaron mentioning and showing photos of Diablo-  … I suppose we might see.

Then see this as me considering your opinion as a valid option.

I suppose it’s rare because you keep the doors closed and barriers up.

-There might have been a slight increase in his smile as the other sat down.  Certainly it would sound insane but Earl found that those people have very interesting conversations-  

Now why would that be?  You certainly don’t look like the type to make deals with the devil.

I suppose you are right.

I do not make deals with devils, nor will I ever. They are vile creatures. I do hope you don’t get caught up as one of their contracts. They may look nice at times, but remember, Earl — A demon’s words are always soft and sweet to lure in their prey. Once they get their hands on you, it’s very hard to break free of it.

Now that sounds a bit more interesting.  I’ve met one or two but they’re never really that clever about the deals.  At least not from what I can see.  No need to entertain them if they’re not going to entertain me.  Now why would you know all about this?  You seem to be quite knowledgeable about these creatures.

-Oh no his entertainment stopped-

What?

No more dancing?

-eyes the phone-

No. No more dancing. I’m all done.

-opens up the umbrella-

Was I just that funny that you needed to record it?

-Did he expect anything less?-

Now that’s a shame.

Funny?  I saw a man expressing unbridled joy.  A bit of raw emotion one doesn’t see that often in these modern times.  How am I able to resist stopping and watching that which we all strive for?

"Too late.  Already did."  Earl waves off her concern, obviously trying to bring the mood back to something a little less sad.  "Besides, you don’t know how many orphans I kick and puppies I take candy from."

"Good."  Earl reaches out and, after a moment’s hesitation, pats her shoulder.  "Just don’t die."  He watches her get up and leave before sighing a tad.  Still, he had a bathroom he still needed to take care off.  After cleaning up the tissues, he walked back and put on his gloves.

"…" There goes a glorious snort.
“Earl, I think you got that a wrong!”

She didn’t eye him again until he patted her shoulder. “… If fate and your laptop will help me.” She reached up to softly pat his hand, before gently slipping it off as she walked away.

Earl muttered to himself, long after she was out of earshot.  ”Fate doesn’t help.  You have to help yourself.”  With a fresh batch of cleaning fluid on the tub, he starts scrubbing again.

_______________________________________

A few days later, things have quieted down once more.  Reaching the apartment building door with Janie, Earl was simply making small talk when someone bumped roughly into his shoulder.  Before he had time to even curse him out, the bloke was already lost around the corner.  With a quickly glance at the woman next to him, he slipped into the entrance room.

"Really, what was his problem?  Even if he was in a hurry, there’s no need to shove people out of your way."  There was a small nagging feeling in him that the bloke seemed… familiar, but he couldn’t catch the face or really, the body.  He moved much too fast.

Then you do at least put some sort of value on me, even if it’s low.  -There’s another wink-

image

It’s not hard to find to find something, especially if I get into your room.  Though you’re right, might be hard to utilize it.  Have any enemies I could meet?  -He hums in thought for a moment- 

Oh… -Well that’s fairly interesting-  Well perhaps I should take you up on that offer from before a bit sooner then I planned.  These are quite good and I would love to see a few more.  It’s a shame you don’t expand on some of these ideas.

But of course; why else would I keep you around?

image

If you get into my room, you wouldn’ last very long. [But he’s apparently decided to let Earl make of that what he will.] Hmm? I’m America; who’d you think?

I’ve already said I wouldn’ mind it; you’re welcome there any time. You can bring Conan along too if you’d like, though I must ask if he gets along well with other animals. Really though, you flatter me; are you such a fan already?

"I don’t sing that bad. Don’t worry." She smiled a bit. and looked lup at him."Left, my foot, right, your foot. Step infront." She said.

She took her foot and steped it back. “Time has gone fast. Amazed we made it this far.”

"Haha…Right." Chuckling nervously, he gave a…

She stopped singging and chuckled, “Yep. A bit easy if you partner knows what theyre doing. Youre good at this Earl…”

Maria then stopped dancing and looked up into his eyes.”We’ll make it… Promise… We are roomies after all. It’d be a shame if one of us wasnt there.”

"Am I now?  I’m just following your lead.  Perhaps you’re just a splendid teacher."

Earl gave her a small, bittersweet smile.  How storybook, really.  ”You can make promise and wishes all you want.  It’ll do shit if we don’t put the effort behind it.”  He dropped her waist but kept his hand in hers as he started to pull her away from the guard post.

"It’s best if we get some sleep now.  I’ll call someone to take over.  They’ll understand."

-Earl probably wasn’t paying much attention to him until now-

And then you lost me.  I can do many things but reworking the inner workings of my laptop is beyond my confidence to do.  

image

Not that hard if one understands it.  Do you do this sort of thing for a living?  As a hobby?

And really, are you okay there?  You look a tad tired.

[The model yawned softly, leaning against the others shoulders now that the computer was fixed]

I’ve fiddled with computers a few times before and so I figured out some thing about them.

image

No, more like I got board one day and fiddled around with one.

I haven’t slept in like four days, so it’s whatever.

-Earl just watches him, eyebrow arched as he started to put his weight on him.  What a horribly trusting fellow-

-Did he have a sharpie around him?-

Fiddled?  That’s certainly one way to put it.  Much like how I “dabbled” with writing.  -Earl doesn’t quite believe that story-

You honestly should find a safe place to collapse before you do so int he middle of the road. Trust me, it’ll happen sooner or later so you might has well pick your resting place.

School yard taunts might work when I’m tired, but really I’m sure you can think of something better than that.  -That’s right.  Good job, Aaron.  Earl takes another drink.  He’s figured he’s earned this-

image

Ha.  Damage control.  -Earl shakes his head, smile still one his face from before-  Then at least lets make a safe word.  I would rather not cause undue stress because you’re stubborn.

Then the other times you’re around me is a tad abnormal?  -Earl always knew he drank and smoked, but really… going at the bottle when there was a guest sleeping upstairs?-  Then I’ll just take it as fact then.  

I could, but the question of the matter is if I ought to say it. [He certainly thought of other things, before he had edited himself when speaking. He sips his whiskey as he leans back in his chair.]

image

I ‘pose you could say that. [Though he chuckles softly as Earl continues.] A safe word? What on earth would that be? Though, I ‘pose if anyone here needs a safe word, it’s for your stress, not mine. Granted, you do make it a bit unavoidable by that stubborness…

If you’d like to put it that way, it may be. [Be happy he isn’t tipsy or drunk, Earl. At least not yet.] 

Might as well.  I would like to see the strange things that flow from your mouth when you have little restraint.  -Not like Earl is going to be too insulted.  Aaron has nothing on him-
