I’m a loaded gun
Who: Iris and Richard
What: Iris tries to be friendly and knocks on Richard's door, but will Richard answer?
Where: Richard's door
When: October 18th
One day after work, around 7:00, Iris looked around her apartment, drinking from a bottle of water. The snake tank was set up, as was her television, computer and bed, but beyond that, she really still didn't have much. Her mother had given her bare essentials and she was surviving, but she desperately needed a trip to some stores. She knew of where an IKEA was and had the address for the closest store, but she also wanted to check out some local shops before giving into the big name store. Sometimes you found some great things at little local stores, even vintage shops. Iris checked to make sure Katie's cage was locked, something she did religiously ever since the incident with Juliet occurred, not that it had anything to do with the lock. As she locked the door, Iris thought of her neighbor Richard, the one that had mentioned he was a new resident as well. He probably didn't need anything, but it didn't hurt to ask, especially since they had agreed to go out on the town together at some point and learn the land so to speak.
As Iris headed to Richard's apartment, she wondered if she should've showered and changed out of her zoo clothes. There was a certain scent associated with reptiles, and since she had long stopped smelling it, she was never entirely certain if she smelled ever so slightly of zoo or not. The truth was that she really didn't care what people thought of her. Normally she wouldn't have even been knocking on Richard's door, there would always be a part of her that didn't trust people and would always be wondering what someone's alterior motives might be. That combined with the fact that she had to completely force even a slight smile, meant that a lot of people saw her as stuck up and bitchy. However, she was trying to be friendly at Pax, and not her normal ice queen self. As awkward as this would be, she had to try to make friends. This is what led her to Richard's door in a short sleeve button down maroon blouse and black dress pants, knocking.
