[ He mulls it for a while, probably should have done this way earlier than he is now, but, whatever, what the hell, Tess can deal with it. It's just -- Florence, the way he'd left shit with her that week, well. He didn't know how she was feeling about it, he didn't know what she thought she might have gleaned from it, but he didn't expect her to be very happy. ]

[ And he should maybe apologize somewhere in the middle of all that. Maybe. He'll see how she reacts. ]


Tess, it's Jesse. We gotta talk.

[Tess's knee-jerk reaction is to scoff, and scoff she does. If he wants to talk, he's going to have to be a little lower to the ground.]

Got to?
dog_eat_dog: (and i was bad news for you)

How about asking me if I want to? That might get you a little further.

[A long sigh.

She's supposed to be trying harder than this.]


No, it's fine. Let's clear the air. Where do you want to meet?
dog_eat_dog: (you need to sell yourself)

Are you going to push any buttons?

With the exception being you don't flip a shit on me for calling you out on drug use, of course.

This place knows enough about us to take what's precious to us. It knows how to play its cards, and it chose to make you the owner of a drug den.

And I see drugs, I get skeptical. Period. I've never known a seller who wasn't also a user.

Heroin. Cocaine. Meth.

You tell me.

Come on, Jesse, you have to know me well enough by now. It's a risk. I have known enough addicts to know.

And right now, I've got kids around, and I've got teenagers around. You might be able to get Joel in on your little pot nights, but I'm not taking chances with anything more serious than that.

Keep digging yourself a deeper hole.

[But fine, she can meet.]

I'm in the laundry room right now, if you wanna come down.
dog_eat_dog: (i'm frustrated by your apathy)

[She turns her head to look at him, even as she moves damp clothes from the washer to an adjacent dryer.]

It's got nothing to do with boredom. It's about responsibility.

[She shucks a dryer sheer in with the clothes, uses her knee to shut the door, and then fiddles with the dials to start it.]

Besides. I hand-washed clothes for twenty years. There's something satisfying about having it done for you in a few hours and everything coming out of the dryer warm. Sure beats hanging it on a line –– it dries all stiff that way.

[Then she leans against the dryer as it starts up and turns to look at him, arms folded against her ribs.]

[He can be a bum all he wants, but Tess knows the key to staying sane is to keep busy, and she's not going to give herself that much time in the day to think about how bad things could be. Besides, she doesn't want any ghost touching her underthings. That's too weird, if you ask her.

She lifts her chin a little higher, keeping her expression cool. She unfolds her arms just long enough to beckon to him to come closer, like he's a dog she wants at her feet.]


Come inside. Close the door behind you.
dog_eat_dog: (if i wasn't there already)

[She beckons him again, and then extends a hand out, palm up, fingers open. Take my hand.]

C'mere.
dog_eat_dog: (as if to be accepted)

Jesse

[personal profile] dog_eat_dog 2013-11-22 01:38 am (UTC)(link)
[She smiles a touch, and her voice gets softer. Her hand stays out.]

Because I asked you to. Trust me, here.
