"Make him smile," I say stiffly as I return to give her the mask. "If you can do that, I'll find you another job. But for now, that's your priority.

"As for your friends?" I sigh as I take a seat again, my gaze wandering around the filthy apartment with a distasteful frown. "Well, I just hope there were no towns below us last night."

I take the mask from him warily, looking down at it uncertainly before putting it on. My fingers trace the outlines of it for a moment before I place both hands around the thermos.

"Why..?" I press on, "I mean... Not the below us thing, but... Why?"

"My brother hasn't been sober in two weeks," I say simply as I pull a thing of cigarettes from my pocket, not bothering to ask if I can light one up in her apartment. "Has hardly bothered to visit that obnoxious shop of his. And much as I love visiting my childhood home, I rather miss sleeping in my own bed and not having a drug addict try to clock me every time I pick him up off of the floor. It's... messy. I don't like messy."

I nod weakly, emotion threatening me again as I wipe at my cheek and stare at the thermos evasively. 

"What do I tell him..?"

"You'll figure it out," I shrug as I watch her thoughtfully. "He's met with you only a handful of times, and already he seems taken with you. That can only mean there is some cleverness to you that I've only glimpsed.

"Tell him you fell ill," I offer blandly. "That you got caught up with your work. Whatever it takes to convince him that I didn't scare you off. Or, more importantly, that he didn't."
