Who: Kevin and Su
What: Dean's out with Seamus, and they've got a new house to explore.
When: Sunday evening.
Where: their new place of house sitting fun.
Warnings: there might well be some snogging fun, too.
Kevin was excited by the job that had just come his way. Terrible timing, really, because Dean had just jetted off somewhere for the evening, but he doubted his friend would mind. They'd been camping, moving around so that he could keep trying to make connections like this, and one had definitely paid off. It was the biggest house he'd been asked to watch yet, which didn't mean it was a mansion, but it was definitely larger than was strictly necessary for the three of them.
The best part was, it was going to be empty for a month. God, Kevin loved rich people and their vacations, and their houses that got left behind. He was more excited by this than he had been by much of anything in a while, since his ideas about contacting Harry, Ron, and Hermione had involved more complicated spellwork than he'd guessed, and he had been working himself pretty hard to solve that puzzle. Forging magical signatures was one thing, but making them change when wards broke was very complicated magic. Not that Kevin minded the challenge, but he wasn't complaining about the instant gratification of a job finally, finally falling into his lap.
It was handy, to have legitimate references, phone numbers for people who all knew the same one of his aliases, who could vouch for the fact that he'd left their homes in good conditions. When he'd first started, years ago, it had taken him a long time to forge a network like that. Now he could pick and choose which references to give so that none of them got called terribly often, and none of them would guess how often he actually needed to stay in someone else's house.
"Su!" he called, driving back up to the campsite. It really wasn't that far from the house, since he'd been putting feelers out in the neighborhoods nearby, but he'd taken the car just to make sure he was on time. He didn't know whether he would be needing to leave Samwise here for the night anyway, to leave a message for Dean, but he could always bring her back. "Su! Are you still here?"
It was possible she'd gone out, since he'd been away for a while; the house was only one item on his agenda. But her car was here, so unless she'd walked somewhere, she had to be in the general vicinity.
