Helpful || Shawn and Wendy
Wendy had been so grateful that Autumn had asked her to move in with her. The motel Wendy had been staying in was fine for the first few days, but after spending a little over a week there, she realized just how dreadful sitting in a cramped space was. But Wendy was even more grateful that Shawn had offered to help her unpack. Autumn had already done so much by allowing Wendy to move in, so she didn’t want to ask for anything more – but unpacking her boxes, even if she only had a few, was going to be difficult for Wendy, considering she had never liked settling down in one place for too long. After she had moved the small boxes into her new room, she began slowly and neatly ripping the masking tape off of the cardboard until a rhythmic knock sounded from outside the door. Knowing it was Shawn, Wendy faintly smiled to herself as she rose from her knees and began walking towards the wooden door.
“Hey there, stranger!” greeted Wendy as she moved out of the doorway so he could walk in. “It’s nice isn’t it – this apartment? I’m so glad that Autumn offered me to move it.” She felt as if Shawn didn’t neccesarily want to hear the whole story, her words slightly trailed on after a moment. “But anyways, do you want to unload the boxes or just help me organize all of the stuff?”
Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.
