Once you step into the apartment, to your right lies a fleet of stairs that leads to the level above (living room). To the far end of the room, the wall is lined in counter top with a built in sink large enough to put in a restaurant. Then scattered across the room are obvious kitchen appliances that change location from time-to-time due to the landlord's lack of order. Dead center rests a dining table that fits around 12-13 people, but the tables can be pulled apart to make two smaller ones.

Rose was waiting at the microwave, her huge scarf wrapped around her multiple
times. She was never warm. The building was heated, and she still wore a long-sleeved
shirt, a jumper over that, jeans, and her scarf. She wore thick glasses, and her thin
eyebrows were wrinkled above them. She would be pretty like her sister, if she wasn't
ugly.

Soon, the mac and cheese was done, and she was pouring the little packet of Velveeta over
the cheese before sitting down and eating it.

Theodore wobbled himself downstairs, holding a coffee stained #1 father mug and hair matted as if it were never brushed. He wore a maroon jersey knit robe, grey sweat pants and a loose fitting white v-neck, from which is nothing surprising if you knew the man. Apart from the day old scruff, his face laid clean with his dark rimmed glassed, hooked onto the front of his shirt. He slicked his hair back as he approached the kitchen, “Morning Rose.” The landlord announced to make sure he didn’t started the girl. “Seems like your settling in quiet nicely.” He added, as he made his way to the coffee machine, filling it with water and already grounded beans. The coffee machine roared, beginning to drip down into the glass pot and dwelling at the bottom. That sound was the start of his day.

"Huh? Oh, yes, thank you." said she, eating her mac and cheese. This was her
supper, her job making her work weird hours. At least today was a day off, so she could
sleep in. She turned around, looking at the coffee machine. "I would've made that."

Theo looked to the coffee machine then back to her, a brow raised, "On what grounds are you obliged to?" A high pitched pip uttered from behind him, signaling the pot was brewed. All together it added up to 1-2 cups for himself, he turned around and filled the used mug that he felt there was no need to clean. Without adding anything to it, he blew onto the steaming beverage and faced Rose, taking a slight sip.

"None necessary, I just like the simplicity of brewing it." She took a plain
charcoal colored pen and a notebook out of the bookbag she always carried, uncapped it,
and started writing the rough draft of her report that was due next week. She then
grimaced, unscrewed the pen, and popped in a new cartridge. It was funny. Her Lamy was the
only fountain pen she had with a big hole cut into it, but she couldn't remember if she'd
even put a cartridge in the night before.

Theodore chuckled, setting the mug back onto the counter to cool. “Ah I see.” He stepped away from the marble and to the front door, opening it to retrieve the freshly delivered newspaper. Rolling off the rubber band, he shook open the paper and read the headline, sighing on how irrelevant any of it was. As he continued to read on, he made his way back to the kitchen and to the spot he previously stood at. “Anything interesting at work?” He never broke eye contact with the paper, unfolding it to the next story. Pressing his lower back against the counter, he lifted off the mug and took his second sip.

"The
possible cure to HIV?" She said, continuing to write. She always hated lab reports,
ever since she was a kid. Skipping a line to make room for her red pen, she continued to
write. "We can't find any traces left in the rats."

A slight sigh slipped from his mouth as he twirled his coffee inside his mug that was only an inch from the lip. “That’s great, hope it goes well. It will surely earn you a better place then this.” Tossing the newspaper onto the counter he walked over to the dinning table where Rose was sitting and grabbed one of the fruits that sat in a bowel. Pealing the skin from the banana, he tore off the tip and tossed it into the trashcan, proceeding to stuff a few inches in his mouth, letting it hang and walking back to the counter.

"It'll take a while." She said. "The clinical testing begins in 2015." She
continued to scrawl in her quick, legible cursive. She used block print around the lab,
but she could read her own personal font better.

Theodore nodded, chomping down on the banana and gulping it down, “You must have to deal with a lot of others competitors looking to claim the title.” Pulling down the peal, he approached for another bite and drinking it down with his creamless coffee. “Believe me, losing something like that burns your ego down to its core. But I guess in your case, you would just look for a new cure for some other awful virus.” He added, finishing off his pale fruit, and tossing its leftovers into the trash.

"There's a girl who's discovered a treatment for cancer, we're thinking of hiring
her when she can work." The girl was only sixteen, but what she had discovered was
amazing.

“Our generation is probably the best to live in.” Theodore added, finishing off his first cup of coffee. Resting his mug onto the counter, he poured himself another and again waited for it to cool off. An advert caught his eye; he picked up the newspaper and continued on reading. ‘Ready for the Holidays?’ it read, ‘Come down to [insert highly expensive clothing store] for the best deals to make your winter warmer and give you an idea of great gifts this holiday season.’ The rest of the page was lined in a Christmas theme, while sporting all holiday celebrations. Each ad were the same, asking you to visit their stores and spend your well earned money on things that would only last a few months, even with the money you’re paying for them. “I don’t understand why everyone gets all worked up about Christmas.” He mumbled off to himself.

Continuing to write, Rose looked around. "I think I'm going to go back up and
write in peace." She said.

Theodore gave a short nod, figuring he was a bother to mostly everyone in this building. “Go right ahead.” He answered simply, picking up his semi-burning cup of coffee. Before taking a sip, he blew off the steam that curled over the lip of the mug, cooling it off slightly.
