It was better to work than dwell on how unimaginably complicated his life had become since he'd arrived. He patterned his life around when his master left for work in the early hours of the morning and when he returned in the afternoon, molded himself around it like wax on a well worn stamp. His master could take a stopwatch to the routine he'd formed over the course of their time together if it pleased him, but he seemed content enough to find his laundry in the hamper, the counters free of clutter, and the bathroom mirror without a speck of grime. He forged ahead with the garden even when the gloves he'd been supplied with wore blisters in the webs of his fingers from weeding.
Mostly, he tried not to think about how upset his master would be when he found out about his lover – and what that might mean for him.
His evenings consisted mostly of facts and figures, some pulled directly from his memories of his previous household and others not, which he compiled in neat block letters in a little notebook he'd borrowed from his master. He worked on it until his vision swam and the world went dark for a few gloriously silent hours. It was almost a shame to see it finished so soon; he had no idea what would take its place in those hours he could not sleep. Perhaps that was why he felt so dispassionate about its fate, knocking lightly on the office door as he did, without a thread of anxiety one way or another.
