I want to apologize ahead of time for the lack of pictures in this chapter. I changed the whole scenario while typing so the pictures didn’t really match up. I also don’t give the female room mate a name because I don’t remember what her name was in the game and I don’t plan on having her show up again. Warning: Not all parties are fun and games
Athena changed into a gown. Martin insisted that the party was a formal get together even though it was at his house. She arrived pretty quickly, having lived close by. When she rang the bell, Martin answered and ushered her inside. He was pulled aside quickly by another guest.
Guest: There’s a problem in the kitchen.
Martin: I have to uh…get that…uh make yourself at home!
Athena just nodded. She looked around his house. It was a pretty simple house, only slightly bigger than hers. Working in the military didn’t pay much. She sat down on the couch and began to watch television when the guest began to talk to her.
Guest: You work with Martin right?
Athena: Yes, I do.
Guest: Athena Gray?
Athena: That would be me.
She just snickered in return.
Guest: This seems like some kind of party right? Just us three?
Athena: Uh..I guess? I thought more people were coming.
Guest: Nope, its just us three.
Now that she mentioned it, it was kind of empty in here and the girl didn’t seem to be dressed up really. She just sat casually typing away at the computer like it was hers. Then it occurred to Athena.
Athena: Do you live here?
Guest: Yes, I do. I’m his new roommate. I can’t believe he doesn’t talk about me. I mean his wife Lily lives here too but, she’s never home.
Athena: Oh, I didn’t know Martin was married.
Guest: I mean really? He didn’t tell you? He better not be trying anything again.
Athena jumped back. What was she talking about? Again? It was becoming clear to her why he didn’t have many friends now. His room mate was basically interrogating her. Besides, who has a female room mate if you’re married?
Athena: Whats your name?
She just shrugged in return.
Guest: It doesn’t matter.
Martin called from the kitchen.
Martin: Food is done, go and get some. I’d like to show Athena something.
He led Athena to another room.
Athena: Whats up? Do you need to show me something for work?
Martin shook his head.
Martin: Not really I have to give you something though. Close your eyes.
Athena: uhm, its your party why are you giving me something?
Martin: -sigh- isn’t it obvious?
