”—There was a collective gasp in the room and Barack chanced a look up at his lovers face. There was a tear in Mitts eye as he looked affectionately down at Barack, a wide smile on his face. “Mitt Romney, will you marry me?”
Hi guys. I’m tiiiired. I had a pretty awful outing with friends yesterday and then slept and ate today and now I’m on my phone while my brother burns stuff for my science fair experience because he really wanted to. :|
The sudden voice behind her startled the preoccupied woman slightly, and she let out a small yelp of fright, jumping and almost upending the carefully arranged blooms. Smiling as she got over her fright (which she did immediately, upon recognizing the other woman), she clasped her hands behind her back, "Hello, I've almost done. I.. hope you had a nice day?" Usually she quietly did her work and then vanished, but there was no harm in a little conversation- it was nice to know who she worked for.
Ruby’s brow furrowed at Rain’s reaction. She didn’t know what she’d expected from the quiet woman, but it certainly hadn’t been that. “I did, except for being completely exhausted. If I had not died already, I’d be rather concerned about myself dropping dead right now… How about yourself? Oh, and I’m sorry for just sneaking up on you like that. I didn’t mean to frighten you.”
Yeah, but..having few friends means you have less people to lose.
…I’m not happy that you think that way… that you’ve experienced so much hurt, that you’re guarding yourself. But I’m not going to try and force you to socialize if you don’t want to. And…I can assure you. I’ll always be there. No loss on this end.
In the watery late afternoon light, Rain was making minute adjustments to a fresh bouquet of flowers perched on the windowsill. A misty rain was clouding onto the window, clinging to the pristine glass as the brownie carefully tugged a few petals to sit a little more perfectly atop one another, an intense frown of concentration on her features as she worked.
Just arriving home, Ruby removed her shoes at the door before anything else. Her feet just ached from standing up all day, haven’t gotten a break today between classes. And of course, she just couldn’t miss an afternoon run. And now she was considering that one of the biggest mistakes of her (non) life. She would have sat herself on the sofa and just zoned out for a bit, but she kind of had a roommate now. Or a live in maid, although the term sounded much less pleasant.
She thought it would be rude of her not to at least greet Rain, but then again, she wasn’t sure if the brownie would be around. She didn’t really see her that often, which was something the vampire couldn’t even pretend to understand. Still, she decided to try, and finally found the other woman near the window, appearing to be arranging flowers. She stepped closer to her, before giving a plain “Hello.”

Sliding her hand into the other's, the brownie said "Rain. I sure hope so- I miss being employed," she said with a smile.
Ruby considered something for a moment. Pulling her hand back, she rubbed the back of her neck. Well, she’d just say it. “I could… have a job for you. My apartment’s a mess. And…well I could use some help in cleaning it. I’m not exactly the best at household stuff. I’d pay you, of course. But I live off a teacher’s salary, so I’m sorry if it’s not enough.”
Rain shook her head, hunching her shoulders. "There's not much of a market for brownies in the home anymore," she explained, still smiling politely. She wouldn't let the melancholy show in her voice or expression, she wasn't after sympathy, and she didn't want a job because of it either.
"Oh… Well, I’m sure you’ll still be able to find something here." She extended a hand towards the woman. "I’m Ruby, by the way."
Rain looked taken aback for a moment, mouth open in surprise at the direct question, but then blinked and pulled up her smile, handing the woman a poster. "Job hunting," she said simply.
"Oh, really?" The brunette looked over the poster, thinking that perhaps this woman must be new to town. Or recently lost her job. Although she couldn’t see that happening. Something about her face seemed to read dependable. Although Ruby’s never been an expert on judging people. "Had much luck yet?"
Rain let out a small exclamation of fright as she turned from tacking up a poster and found herself moments from being trampled. "Sor-sorry!" she said, taking a step back to steady herself as she peered at the stranger, expression apologetic as she smoothed out the creases in her posters.
Ruby shook her head. “No, don’t apologize. It’s my fault. I wasn’t paying much attention.” Taking a moment to study the woman, she asked, quite bluntly, “What are you doing?”
Heels clicking on the pavement, Rain wandered through yet another neighborhood of the bewilderingly big city, carefully attaching her lilac-sheeted posters to available surfaces. So far, they'd had very few bites, and her hope was starting to dwindle that they'd find appropriate work, even in a community as diverse as this one.
The vampire’d decided on a late jog, having been enjoying the cooler weather of the fall that followed the summer heat. And of course, she thought with a snort, to keep fit. Because everyone knows that’s a major concern for the dead.
She almost hadn’t noticed the woman putting up papers. It was at the last minute that she stopped, not wanting to run straight into the poor lady.
