::Colin stepped out of the front door of his home and pushed his hands deep into the pockets of his slightly frayed Diesel jeans. He looked at his bike, leaning against the garage door, but he shook his head, answering the question in his head. He didn't feel like going by bike right now, so he started walking along the pavement passing by all the similiar looking houses to his left, until he finally reached Emily's home. He walked up the few steps to her front door and rang the doorbell::

Ring, ring!!!

::Jane stopped on the corner and reorganize her bags again. She had walked all the way from North Plaza with the 6 Gap bags. Normally, it was a 15 minute walk, but the bags were slowing her down. She tripped and fell on her face as she passed on of the houses, sending skirts and tops flying everywhere. She sighed and started gathering the stuff::

A fitting ending to the day...

::Colin noticed a fairly familiar girl walk by when she suddenly tripped, the entire contents of her bags being sprawled out on the pavement. Emily looked at Emily and then over to the girl again::

"Ickity...I'll go help."

::he smiled at Emily and walked over to the girl::

"Hey...need a hand...Jane, right?"

::she tossed them into one of the bags carelessly::

"Sale plus discount. I spent most of my paycheck. I hate spending my Dad's money on clothes."

I hate spending his money on anything. Bastard.

"No problem..."

::he stood up asweel now::

"If you need any help or anything...I'm usually sitting alone at home, being bored."

::he grinned at her::

"But I should warn you. The last time I tried to iron something I managed to burn a hole in it."

"It wasn't intentional! I was pouring water into the iron, I moved my arm the wrong way, and..."

"You can see how it ended."

"I thought you didn't mean to do intentional!"

::he shook his head, laughing lightly again::

"Okay...to sum it up: Both of us should not go near any irons."

"I live just around the corner, but you're right...I'm actually from England. What about you? Did you grow up here or did you just move here too?"

"England, OK. That's what I thought. I grew up here. My mom's family has lived in Haven Hills since she was a kid. My dad moved back to the city about a year ago."

::she laughed::

"It's been interesting, that's for sure. There are times when I wished I lived somewhere else, but in the end, it's OK here. I don't know many people though, I keep to myself."
