Apartment Above Luke's, Sunday Afternoon
The quiet was nice.

Kathy looked around the empty apartment, wandering from room to room. If asked, she'd say she was picturing where all their stuff would go when she and Raven left Eliot's place (okay, Eliot's and Parker's and Hardison's, but it had been Eliot's place in her mind for years and it would take some adjusting to) and moved in here, but really, she was just appreciating the quiet. It was nice, being somewhere that no one else was for a little while. She didn't have to worry about whether her smile was convincing or she appeared happy--and grateful! One mustn't forget grateful!--to be alive again. Not that she wanted to be dead again or anything. But sometimes it was hard to be happy about anything. But around people, she felt like she owed it to them to try. Or at least to put up a decent enough facade that they could convince themselves she was.

Alone, though, she didn't have to pretend. She could just do her own thing, try to distance herself from her recent spate of nightmares and just wander for a bit. She would have thought she'd gotten enough walking in as an ex, but maybe her body'd just gotten used to the repetitive motion. Maybe idly poking around the place really would give her some ideas for what to do with the place. Or maybe it was all just bullshit and she should focus on thinking less altogether.

Yeah, it was probably the latter. But until she found a decent substitute for her previous activities that shut her brain down (besides zombieism, ha ha, she was hilarious), walking and appreciating the lack of people would have to do.

Raven had taken to much the same habit, actually, though she'd gotten bored of walking and had taken instead to trying out different leaping and flying shapes as she roamed around town.

She alighted on the window intending only to pause for a moment and give her wings a break, when she spotted Kathy in the apartment. She tilted her head, then pecked the glass with her beak.

Hey. Hey Kathy. Let your roommate in!

Kathy glanced over to the window, then immediately straightened up a bit, a small smile getting affixed to her face. "Taking things a bit literally, aren't you Raven?" she asked, opening the window. "I'd ask if we needed to install alternate entrances for you, but I'm pretty sure Parker took care of that while we were still students."

Raven hopped into the room and as soon as she was sure she wouldn't whack herself on the window sill doing it, shifted to her natural shape. Now, to work on getting Kathy to let her in in the metaphorical sense, too.

"Taking the stairs isn't as fun." She shrugged. "Checking out the new digs?"

What on earth did you mean, Raven? Kathy was totally fine!

"I thought I'd take a look around, you know?" Kathy said, gesturing to the empty rooms. "Our stuff is up in Eliot's attic, so I figured I'd come here, see what was left behind and how our stuff will fit in here, you know?"

Raven shrugged. "Sure." She slid down from the sill and wandered her way further into the space. It looked pretty well cleaned out to her. "You think you might be ready to move in soon? Not that Mr. Spencer's place isn't nice, but. . . ."

But it'd be good to have a place where she didn't have to worry about four different people potentially startling a kill reaction from her. One was plenty enough.

A place where they didn't have to share a room, never mind a bed, and they could both pretend to not be insomniacs in peace.

"We could move over the next week, maybe?" Kathy suggested. "Have a little dinner party on Friday or something to celebrate?"

See? So domestic! So extroverted! So totally fine!

"Oh my god, a dinner party." Raven's mouth twisted almost unwillingly into a broad grin. "Give me flashbacks to the fifties, why don't you. Let's see, it's well after Labor Day, so we wouldn't want white gloves, but ivory or cream could be appropriate. . . ."
