Not yet, I’m staying at a hotel at the moment. I’m a history teacher and I’ve just taken a position at the high school. I may have taken a bigger leap than I should have. You have a house up for sale? Would you mind if I took a look?
Oh really? I actually have a good friend who works at the school. Well, he’s a substitute but still, he’s there often. That is quite a leap though, to come straight over without any real residence. You’re much braver than I am, that’s for sure. No, not at all! We’ve been having open houses all week. Been trying to get the thing off the market for a while now, maybe you can help me out.
I would certainly hope not.
I’m not exactly passing through.
Oh! Have you just moved to town? Or planning to? Sorry, I don’t mean to sound so intrusive… I just have been trying to sell my house so I’m sort of advertising big whenever I can.
And already there’s an old man telling me that I should be dead.
Wow… ummm welcome to Renata. Let me assure you not everyone is greeted that way.
It was spread across a quarter of the lab. I believe he was more concerned with the amount of chemicals I had in a close proximity. I assured him that they were perfectly safe, and that the fire was related to my Bunsen burner, the ring stand broke and it fell to the ground, but he wasn’t convinced.
Alright, I’ll talk to my mom just in case. You’re welcome.
Oh.. wow. I mean, at least you were luckily unharmed and that’s really what matters in the end. I don’t even know how I would have reacted to that. Sometimes Bryce tells me stories about things going wrong and I get a little scared for him. I’m sorry to hear you were evicted though.
Yes, okay. I’ll keep you both, or even Blake, on speed dial in case I get desperate.
I would have done it for food.
Well that would have been a hell of a lot cheaper.
Well, I’m not very knowledgeable when it comes to selling houses but if your Realtor doesn’t work out then my mom may know someone who can assist you. I had a slight mishap in my lab and burned a hole in the carpet of my apartment, this was back when I was still in college, and she called this guy because my landlord was convinced that he was not going to be able to rent out the apartment anymore. Anyway, this guy comes in and throws a rug over the burn. Two days later he rents out the apartment.
It may have been better if I had been able to move out first, I wasn’t aware that you could get evicted for turning your bedroom into a laboratory. I was accused of being many things, Chemist was not one of them.
How big was the burn that you not only got evicted but also worried the landlord that he wouldn’t be able to sell the apartment? I don’t think I have anything wrong with the house that would cause any worries like that, not that I’m aware of at least, but I’ll still keep it in mind anyways if I become desperate. Thank you, Tori.
