Neighbors!

  1. Quinn | Outside

    Interactions: Carrie @KatSea

    I simply nod and hum along with everything Carrie says. "Yep", "Uh huh", "Right. Fully comprehended", and so on and so forth. Right now, I don't register a single word she's saying; the pain and exhaustion in her voice is just too loud to ignore. It literally feels like every syllable is tearing away at me and I don't quite know how to handle it. I just want it to stop.

    I don't like seeing her suffer like this.

    "Are you finished?" I ask while gently looping her arm around my shoulder, trying to support her weight. I also make sure to hold her on her uninjured side. Gaze set ahead, I squint my eyes and try to remember where the hospital is. I don't think it's far from here at all. I sigh and cut a side glance at Carrie. "Punish me all you wish afterwards, but I'm assisting you whether you approve or not."

    There's this knot growing in my gut. I'm still terrified at the possibility of someone asking for my identity. I could just drop Carrie off and leave but...I don't know, something about the hollow, desperate look in her eyes tells me that she shouldn't be alone right now...Christ. I just can't get a break, can I--

    ...Oh. Fuck.

    She's back.

    Dark Quinn is standing on the opposite side of Carrie, peering around her and pinning me down with this intense, dead stare. I can't tell if she's mocking me or trying to freak me out. Probably both. Goddammit...leave me be!

    I grit my teeth and try to ignore her, fixing my hold on Carrie. "Come, we should move swiftly."

    I almost consider using my hyper-speed, but I'm worried that the jostling, no matter how quickly it happens, will worsen her wound. We'll have to settle for walking.

     
  2. (HOLY CRAP WE ARE AT ONE THOUSAND ALREADY? Woo it's been one heck of an awesome journey)
     
  3. I was CERTAIN that one of my neighbors was a drug dealer. Because I Took a walk to clear my head, LATE one night and I saw a black corvette pull up to the guy's house, The neighbor gave the guy a brown paper bag, and the guy gave him a WAD of cash. I remember running and weaving through alleyways, just in case they didn't want a witness.

    One of my neighbors is a BIG time dude in the Oil companies. So if you hate the oil company, I have a name to hate.

    Then we got the neighbors with the THREE GOLDEN RETRIEVERS. WHO ARE NEVER ON LEASHES. I mean, Jesus. NOT TOO HARD TO SLIP THEM ONTO THE COLLARS. Fuckers.

    Then there are the five neighbors who are DEATHLY REPUBLICAN. They hate me.

    Then there's the creepy ex-priest. We don't know, and don't WANT to know why he isn't a man of god anymore.

    Then there's the russian old lady who walks her dogs ONLY when it's cloudy and over cast. She doesn't speak much English, and I don't know much russian AT ALL. But it's fun walking my dog with her because our dogs get along. I've seen her arguing with the ex-Priest in Russian while he was yelling that she was a devil.

    I DID have some REALLY nice neighbors when I was younger. They paid me to take care of their cat while they took a trip to try and get the wife's cancer taken care of. When they came back, I got paid DOUBLE. AND GOT A WHOLE BUNCH OF HOMEMADE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES. But a week after that, they had to go, because the wife had gone terminal and she wanted to die in her hometown. Honestly, I have to say, I hope she either SOME HOW survived, or that she died peacefully. She was REALLY nice. Plus their son was gay, and they supported him.

    I'll remember more fun stories eventually.
     
  4. I am "that neighbor".
     
  5. I'm the neighbor people wonder if she's still alive :P
     
  6. I'm the neighbor you don't know exists until Halloween.
     
  7. I think we're "that neighbor" too. c___c All the weird things happen in THIS apartment.

    All our neighbors are pretty cool though. XD The people upstairs are our buddies. Chats it up with Isaboo, gives occasional rides and such.
     
  8. I do not enjoy having neighbors. They bring PESTILENCE and STRANGE ODORS. Not to mention PECULIAR SOUNDS at ODD HOURS of the NIGHT.
     
  9. They don't bother me, I don't send ballistic objects their way.
     
  10. one of my neighbors threw a brick at my dog when i was a kid.

    he missed, and dad threatened to beat the everloving shit out of him if he ever did it again.

    but the dog ran away.

    i hate that guy.
     
  11. I live in a small town. So my next door neighbor is a freeloading bum of an uncle we want to kick out (but can't because my grandpa is too soft). Then I have a bunch of houses around mine and they're all church goers and we're too frickin' close to each other so, of course, they could hear my family's drama. <_<
     
  12. What makes you guys "that neighbor"? Was it intentional, or an accidental occurrence based on something "normal" for your household?
     
  13. I've never been outside.
     
  14. i think all of my neighbors think that me and my dad are weapons-dealing, 2nd-amendment-worshipping, militant nutjobs..............the fact that we have a hollywood .50 cal (we're converting it to airsoft) and a gun rack mostly full of guns, load up the car with guns, kit and camping gear while in our camo AND have atleast two people come over and carry guns in and out of the house, might be a small reason why...............................................maybe

    (all of the guns are airsoft btw)
     
  15. Eh I live in an apartment complex in a run down area in Vegas.... My closet neighbors are old people, they're nice but it's hard to really befriend em, ya know. :p Age difference, can't relate.

    It's not that friendly of a neighborhood sadly... Lotsa crazies, like that dude who was screaming at the police at 3 AM when I was trying to sleep. Good thing the AC is so loud it'll blare out most outside noise when on. :P
     
  16. There's this silly old Chinese lady in our building that loves seeing me and my dad and laughing and saying "HELLO HELLO" in a high pitched voice. It's kind of cute and funny so we end up waving like idiots too and saying " HELLO HELLO" in high voices... xD
    I find it hilarious -__- though a little strange xD
