5. Chapter Five
Rigby tossed and turned whilst he felt sun rays burning into his fur slightly. The curtains must not have been shut properly. Rigby couldn't help but groan as he realised that he was going to have to move before he got his fur singed off. Rigby huffed loudly, knowing it wouldn't wake mordecai up in his bed as he was such a heavy sleeper, and threw the dirty clothes off his body. It took Rigby a minute before he slowly raised his head to look over at Mordecai's side of the room before he realised Mordecai wasn't there...
That was odd, Mordecai never left the room without him.
Rigby stepped off his trampoline before shuffling to the door and opening it. Rigby continued walking and poked his head down the railings to see if it looked like anyone had been downstairs for a while. Rigby couldn't see anything odd so he continued walking down the stairs, Listening out for any sign of movement. Rigby reached the bottom of the stairs before heading into the kitchen, Where he was greeted by the sight of Mordecai hunched over a cup of coffee.
"Hey dude" Rigby said whilst moving to get a cup of coffee for himself.
"Hey..." Mordecai mumbled. Rigby turned around to ask if Mordecai wanted anything when he finally got a good look at his friend. Mordecai's normal hairstyle was completely gone, His feathers heavily mixed up. Dark circles had created themselves under his eyes and his usually friendly nature was replaced by a tired attitude. "Dude you look terriable! How long have you been up for?" Rigby asked, Placing his mug on the desk and moving to stand next to mordecai. "Since we went to bed last night... This is my 10th cup of joe dude... I just couldn't sleep..." Mordecia grumbled, Raising his ruffled feathers to his face and rubbing his tired eyes. Rigby placed his paw onto Mordecai's feathers, and sighed.
"Dude... Why didn't you wake me up? You know I would have come down with you!" Rigby said, Moving his paw and going back to making his coffee. Mordecai didn't have time to answer before they heard the front door open and shut again. It took a few seconds before Benson appeared in the kitchen. "You guys are up early, Makes a change around here!" He said before moving to sit at the table with Mordecai. Benson seemed to notice that something was off between the pair before he saw Mordecai.
Benson had never seen the Blue Jay look so tired. It was like the wind had been knocked out of Benson, And when he recovered he went to look at Rigby. Benson noticed Rigby's concerned eyes were fixated on the Blue Jay. Rigby seemed to notice that Benson was watching him as Rigby gave Benson a glare and moved back to making himself a cup of coffee.
Benson felt like he was intruding on the pair, And needed to think of an excuse to leave the duo and go and find skips. "Well... I'll see you guys in a few. Don't be late or YOUR FIRED!" Benson shouted, his usually snappy attituted coming back. Mordecai winced at the loud noise before standing up to throw away his now cold coffee. Benson quickly walked out of the kitchen and shut the front door behind him leaving the duo alone once again.
