How did this happen?
Nick looked around at the empty place. He wondered what Heath would think. Jack was with him. It was weird how it all came about. But Jack had nothing to do, and Nick didn't want to go alone. Here he was looking at the place with him.
"Its not bad." Jack opened the cabinet under the sink and checked the trash disposal. The place was nothing fancy, but still it was clean. The kitchen was minty green. All the other rooms were white. "You could always paint."
Jack checked the patio door. There was a big back yard. It was a three bedroom house. A full basement.
"Is he going to kill me, you know, if I take it?" Nick saw nothing wrong with the place. He didn't see it as fixing up, but they could make a few changes to make it their own too.
"Look, remember she said about just renting." Jack shrugged.
"Yeah, that's what I was thinking." Nick sighed.
"Well, if you guys want to stay with is his parents, that gets old fast. I'd say bite the bullet and take it." Jack advised.
Nick just smile. He was right. How Nick wanted it to be just Heath and him. A place of their own. That's all he needed was for someone to say it was OK, to take the place.
