Housemates

Housemates

0 INK

One of the best deals in the world for a house, and your landlady is awesome. But there's one hitch. You'll probably hate your housemates.

3,234 readers have visited Housemates since ladygeekiness created it.

Introduction

Housemates
Image
New York, one of the biggest cities in the world, and one of the busiest. But it's surprisingly hard to find a place to stay. So, when 10 people in different situations find an advertisement for a great rent deal, it's a one time chance. The landlady Ms. Smith and her grandson are super nice, the rent is cheap, and you get a big room in a big house that isn't infested with cockroaches or anything. But the only real problem is that they'll probably hate their housemates. They're all complete opposites, and have nearly nothing in common. Some might be a bit similar, but they're bound to find even the smallest thing about each other they hate.But they can't give up this offer, so what will happen? Will there be surprising friendships? Obvious enemies? Or, perhaps, will opposites attract?

NPCS
These characters are NPC's, with basic personalities. If someone wants to have one of these NPCs as their character rather than a housemate, that would be fine, but you'll have to ask me if you can take over that NPC.

Casey JoAnn Smith

Image

Casey climbed out of one of the windows and ran out to the front lawn, her eyes scanning the area rather…quickly. She had worry clear on her face, cupped her hands about her mouth and shouted for her grandmother.

“Grandmother! Granny! Mickle got out of his cage again! I think he’s loose!” She shouted, and gave a hopeful smile. She knew she was in for a scowl. She knew she would get a good talking to about how she needed to keep a closer eye on her pet, expecially with new guests in the house. But she couldn’t help how smart he was. He was too smart for his own good.

Casey was running out of excuses though, but not out of pranks. She had a prank for every person and more to come. She did minor things, like salt with the sugar shaker, or sugar with the salt. She also made sure one of the bathrooms didn’t have any toilet paper. Her extreme prank however, was in the kitchen and she wondered who would find it first.

Casey was never one to prank people as a baby, in fact, she seemed to be rather likable. But it was just issues with the family, someone once said, and that she was just ‘acting out’, whatever that meant. The girl uncapped her mouth and moved her arms behind her back.

“Granny?”

(OOC: Had trouble with net as of late due to moving house and then bad connection, added with my wireless not working either so access hasn't been good but back now. As for rp, was waiting to see if Ms Smith would respond but can assume she returned due to Casey's post while we have another interaction between Kaylee/Brad, so will have implied control of Ms Smith in this, just to get the interaction between Corey/Dani underway)

Jocks certainly had their stereotypical image, but it did not mean that all jocks were the same. Jocks afterall were not the patient type for starters, such that Corey clearly was as he waited for his time to speak and not wishing to interrupt, such that other jocks would have no problem entering as they would feel they were more important. Patience was not the only thing, but also the way they act around the girls, such that jocks would continuously wish to impress, being more of an impresser rather than constant flirting and charming like the womaniser type which Brad clearly was. Corey was more concerned due to his background and would apologise if he felt he was in the wrong rather than dismissing like others. He was clearly different, as was the girl from first impressions as she could of swore and mouthed him off for getting in her way from her appearance but she was nothing like that...or was she....

"I'm a klutz, my fault...The wrist is fine. I'm fine, we're all fine". If that wasn't an 'awkward' moment, Corey wasn't sure what was, so he done what he felt was best, silence. "Really...just fine", she replied to Ms Smith as she rubbed the back of her neck with one held with one missing, no doubt hiding. Breaking the silence was a sound of a young girl, "Grandmother! Granny! Mickle got out of his cage again! I think he's loose!........Granny?", as he turned to face the girl who looked innocent, but with the smile and her arms not in sight suggested otherwise. Not only that, but the roommates note suggested she was naughty by Ms Smith's comment. Nevertheless, she seemed to pull Ms Smith away from the 'awkward' situation and over to her granddaughter who shared the house along with all the housemates and her brother Jason. Ms Smith was certainly an extraordinary lady to accept so many housemates to help them all out ontop of looking after her grandchildren.

Despite Ms Smith leaving the scene, the 'awkward' moment still lingered in the air, though Corey decided to break the air and return it back to the topic that had brought the three of them together, "You didn't sound fine when you left", he pointed out. It was not his intention to stir things up again, or he would of mentioned it while Ms Smith was there, as it was clear that saying she was fine when it didn't sound fine was her preferring to keep to herself, such that he found himself doing more when he gave up his jock-lifestyle and losing quite a bit of his reputation in the process with him no longer being the Captain. It was a good thing though, seeing as his girlfriend only desired him for his title rather than who he was. It was wrong. "Accidents happen and we both didn't look where we were going, so we're both klutz, but if your hurting then maybe you want to go to the doctors to be on the safe side if you need to, I won't tell anyone that you have if you prefer", he suggested, trying to be a voice of reason.

”I really hope you’re not a waste of time…”
Image


Surprisingly enough, Dani felt relieved when Mrs. Smith left to tend to her granddaughter. Or at least, that is what she assumed by the term ‘granny’. Dani watched as the older woman disappeared into the house and allowed herself to take a deep breath as silence, not just silence but awkward silence hung above where she stood. She swallowed down her pride and looked to the boy she had collapsed into and her eyes finally settled on his own. She wanted to explode, but she was too tired of insulting people, in fact, she was too tired of everything at that moment.

He had mentioned the hospital and she took no time in shaking her head. “No.” She said simply, clearing her throat quietly. “Doctors and I do not mesh well.” Dani lifted her hand in front of her and carefully bent it back, craning her hand slightly. She grimaced and released an uneven breath of air. It must have been just a sprang, since she was able to move it and the bruising was a bit alarming but it wasn’t anything compared to her burns.

Dani, as a rebel, should have yelled at him for following her, but a part of her was intrigued. Why didn’t he just brush her off like most guys would? Compared to other girls, she seemed to just be a waste of space.

“I’d say did it hurt when you fell, but it’d seem like some cheesy bologna pick up line.” Was that humor? Certainly. If it was funny, she didn’t know, it had escaped her lips without her thinking twice about it. “Are you okay?”

Dani fixed her face on his finally, her eyes no longer looking pained, but somewhat intrigued. The rebel would have allowed her eyes to trail over the entirety of his form, but she wouldn’t allow herself to go that far. Though his eyes had caught her attention quite a few times.
