Death Next Door

Her new roommate has a rather questionable friend.
WARNING: a TON of fluff. Sorry but I based the main male off of a character that I LOVE from a series so if you don’t like cute starry nights than suck it and go read something else

5. Chapter Five

Seven minutes later, Cole showed up at the door. Willow held it open, waiting for him to enter. “Uh... come in, idiot,” she snapped, pissed at the stains the blood would (obviously) leave. “Where’s Hadley?” Cole asked, brushing his hand through his hair as he walked through the meager foyer.

“I’m here,” Hadley chirped, popping her head around the entryway to the hall. “Hadley, what the actual fuck. Are you sure it’s– it’s their blood?”

“Very sure. It even did the bubbling thing and everything.”

“Willow, I need to talk to you while Hadley cleans up the blood, okay?” Cole said gently, pulling down the hood on his gray hoodie and revealing his seemingly endless mane of hair.

Thirty minutes later, Willow was sitting on the kitchen counter, shocked out of her mind. “C-Cole, are you absolutely certain this needs to happen?” she asked, horrified.

“Yes. They don’t have any other home– I’ll pay for their education and everything, if you just provide housing.”

Cole has just explained that his brother’s child, Ark, was coming to stay over for a few months. Cole was their legal guardian for the time being, as his brother was hospitalized in a terrible transportation accident and couldn’t take care of them. He also explained the kid’s tendency to mess with people, as they had little contact with the world because of homeschooling.

“So let me get this straight. Your agender, albino nephew with psychotic tendencies is coming to stay with me because your house isn’t big enough?” Willow hated kids! She would have to hide the alcohol, hide her TV remote, and hide her romance novels! Okay, so maybe not the romance novels. They needed some kind of introduction to proper literature.

“Well, not exactly because it’s not big enough..” Cole muttered, rubbing the back of his neck. “It’s just not a very child-appropriate environment.”

Willow stared at him incredulously. “You’re a secret party animal?!” she shrieked, loud enough to wake the neighbors.

“No, no!” Cole hissed, looking embarrassed. “Like I said, it’s just not very appropriate for a kid.”

What could she do? She was stuck in between a rock and a hard place. “Okay,” Willow agreed grudgingly.

“Thanks Will! I owe you one! They’ll arrive on Sunday!” Cole called as he walked out.

More like he owed her a million.
