Hey guys :)

Hope you like it :)

Hey guys :)

Bridgeport. Big, shiny, glamorous, always alive. We'll see if it lives up to its reputation. I never planned on leaving Starlight Shores, but I guess life makes its own plans and doesn't really ask for our opinion.

I should look for an apartment. Or a room, at least.
"Perfect for med students, right? What are you studing, again?"

Nothing. I graduated five years ago...
"I hung my fishing trophies on the wall, hope you don't mind them. But the room itself, It's absolutely lovely, don't you agree?"

Yeah, I'm...mesmerized.
"The room even has a ventilation shaft, for fresh air, and six mood candles."

Dear God...
Looks like I'm gonna be living in the sewer. Maybe I'll meet those ninja turtles if I'm lucky. I'll try one more time, and then I'm out. I'll rent a bench in the park. Alex rang the bell a few times, but nobody answered.

Just when he started thinking where he could find a nice bench, he heard someone slamming the door behind him.
"AND DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT CALLING ME! I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU WOULD DO SOMETHING LIKE THIS!", the girl screamed at the door. "Why are you standing there? Move, let me get inside MY APARTMENT!", she said and stormed inside, slamming the door again. Doorbell rings

"I have nothing to say to you, Athena.", Jamie said angrily
Alex opened the door and carefully entered.

"Don't shoot, I'm not Athena.", he said.
"And who are you?", Jamie asked.

"Alex. I saw the ad.", he said.

"Ad?", Jamie asked suspiciously.

"Looking for roommate ad?", Alex asked.

"Oh, that ad. Of course. Sorry. Come in, sit.", Jamie said and sat on the sofa.
"I was a bit distracted, sorry. I'm Jamie.", she said and smiled.

Ah, she can smile!, Alex thought.

"Nice to meet you. Hope you won't shoot me.", he said.

"Can't promise.", Jamie said and laughed.

"So, this is the apartment. It's new, everything in it is also new. The room you can rent was never used before. Feel free to look around.", she added.

"Thank you.", Alex said and got up.
"I'll take it. After everthing I've seen today, this is a sight for sore eyes.", Alex said when he got back.

"Great. Here's your key. Enjoy.", Jamie said.

"I won't be bugging you much. We share the apartment, but feel free to do what you like. Throw parties, bring girls, adopt a dog... I don't really care, I just need someone to share the rent with.", she added.

"Good to know. I'm going to get my stuff, I left them at the bus station.", Alex said.
"Why would you do that?", Jamie asked.

"So I don't have to carry them around with me all day. I convinced the guy who works there to keep an eye on them 'till I get back.", Alex explained.

"I see. Okay then, see you later.", Jamie smiled.
This apartment is beyond amazing, and Jamie seems quite nice. Maybe Bridgeport isn't that bad after all., Alex thought.

Although, I just had a shower in the most expensive shower I've ever seen. Everything in this apartment looks expensive, when I think about it. Why would someone who has the money for renting an apartment like this need someone to share the rent with?
"Hey.", Alex said as he entered the kitchen.

"Hey, would you like some coffee?", Jamie asked.

"No, thanks. I have to get up early.", Alex answered.

"That's why you're already in your pajamas...you're going to work?", she asked knowingly.

"Yeah. I got a new job in Lafferty Consolidated, I'm the new boss of their IT section, that's why I moved here.", Alex said proudly.

That's just amazing, she hired another one., Jamie thought.

"Jamie?", Alex asked.

"Sorry, I spaced out. Congratulations on the job.", she said.
"Thanks.", Alex smiled.

"Hey, can I ask you something?", he added.

"Shoot."

"What was all that fuss about, earlier today?", he asked.

"Love.", Jamie answered.

Of course she has a boyfriend. How could she not...

"So boyfriend troubles.", Alex concluded.

"You could call it that way. Let's not talk about it.", Jamie said calmly.

"Sure. Hey, I have to put my laptop here to finish something for tomorrow, I don't have a desk in my room, you don't mind?", Alex asked.

"I told you, I don't mind anything. This is now your apartment as much as it's mine.", she answered.

"I think I heard the doorbell.", Alex said.

"I'll get it.", Jamie said.
"Hey.", Athena said as Jamie opened the door.

"Hey.", Jamie whispered with tears in her eyes.

"I'm sorry.", Athena said.

"Me too.", Jamie whispered.
... I'm now officialy confused.

Omg, I can't stop laughing... the beginning.. with the 3rd room XD... and then .. haha.. Alex's train of thought.. XD

I wonder what Jamie thought tho.. what does she mean with;
"That's just amazing, she hired another one."

I suppose we'll discover that when Alex goes to work and I'm with Alex, I was confused too, but it immediately changed into aw. So Jamie's together with this Athena hm?
