Yeah, okay, he's not leaving his bass out here, and he doesn't have anywhere to drive back to at this point. So.

First floor window is a little high off the ground but if he grabs the drain pipe he can just about make it up – window's locked – he's got his card in his pocket and if he slides it underneath just right –

Got it.

He ducks in through the window and unlatches the door from the inside, grabs his stuff off the front step to head up the stairs. If there's another locked door at the top he can figure it out there.

Permalink

The door's unlocked.

The flat is immaculate; it looks like it was just polished up for a showing. His flatmate is sitting on the couch, just a little stiff in the precision of his posture, eyes fixed on his phone.

He appears to be playing Pokemon Go.

Wh...at?

He's so confused he can't even really be mad.

He sets his backpack down next to the door.

Permalink

"You'll want to pick it back up."

Permalink

"...why."

Permalink

"Gyms are easier with two."

He still hasn't looked up from his phone.

Permalink

 

Okay, not – the weirdest thing the guy has known about him without asking.

"...you were just gonna leave me outside, weren't you."

Permalink

"You got in, didn't you?"

Permalink

"–I mean, I guess."

He should've kept looking through craigslist.

(Except.)

 

He heads back downstairs to start hauling up more of his personal effects. (Instruments first, then textbooks, then the rest.)

Permalink

He's studiously leveling up a Deoxys. "I hope you aren't going to just leave that all over the floor."

Permalink

"I'm...moving in. Do you not – know how that works?"

Permalink

"Should I?"

The phone is still playing level-up music repeatedly in the background.

Permalink

 

"Are you cheating at Pokémon Go?"

Permalink

"I'm leveling up my pokemon. This is how you play it."

Permalink

This is...an incredibly confused person.

 

He goes off looking for the empty room, so he can shuttle his stuff off to it.

Permalink

The room is unobjectionable!

(Pokemon Go sounds continue in the background.)

Permalink

 

Once the living room is free of his possessions, he sits down (on the floor) to take a breather.

 

"...how'd you know?"

Permalink

He's finally stopped playing Pokemon, in favor of scrolling through a police radar.

"Everyone in your age bracket with a smartphone played it. And you're too pale to have been playing it recently."

Permalink

Ow. Called out.

"Not about Pokémon."

Permalink

"Scuff pattern on your shoes. You've climbed through windows before, and not infrequently."

Permalink

"–okay, not that one either, but that's kind of amazing."

Permalink

"What, then -- oh. Callouses. They're very characteristic."
