[Sam got to the penthouse first, and the place was the kind of swank
that made Neil's digs in Aria look fucking provincial. She was worried about seeing her ppl, but it shouldn't be so bad, yeah? None of them had seen her aged up but Lou, so the others would just think she was a little younger. But whatever, because Tessy hadn't freaked, and so maybe no one else would either.
She'd wandered through the place, counted all half-dozen guest rooms, and wondered why the fuck her insane sister had a mattress in the master bedroom closet. But whatever, because the place was awesome. She'd found a pendant in the master bedroom, some thing
that probably cost like a 100k, and she was wearing it with a wifebeater and corduroy overalls in olive green. The gap from her teeth was missing, and it looked like she might have gotten a busted nose during her years in Arkham, but she was sitting on the kitchen counter, drinking one of Iris' five million packets of tea and swinging bright yellow Docs like life was just amazing.
The place was full of sleeping zombie survivors now, and if she got through this shit, then she'd be able to face Neil.]
