Neveah was taken aback by his "we'll see." That call must gave been something serious if he just had to leave so abruptly. She only shook her head and went back to painting. She kept the door open so the smell would go out with it. If only she had some music to pas the time....
Duh. Her phone. It had to be fully charged still since she hadn't used it the time she'd been there, so she went to her bag, pulled it out, and turned to the music player. Once she found a song she wanted to play, she set down the phone and started to sing.
"Elevator buttons and morning air,
stranger's silence makes me want
to take the stairs.If you were we'd
laugh about their vacant stairs,but
right now, my time is theirs..."
Being distracted, she didn't hear the footsteps that came and stopped at her door.
Neveah wasn't sure why Aries wasn't telling her more, but she wouldn't push, it wasn't her place. She nodded. "Okay, thanks for you're help." She went to where he was by the door, gave his arm a small squeeze."See you later?"
Aries hadn't even waited for Neveah to respond when he had walked out, so Neveah just continued painting and dancing, but she couldn't help but be curious about who had called. A blast from his past maybe? She didn't know. All she knew was that he seemed surprised the caller was calling, and she didn't know if she should ask him about it or not. She would wait and see how things played out when he got back inside.
Aries' phone began to ring and he stopped painting, setting the brush down. Then he reached into his pocket where his tiny Razor phone was ringing. He examined the caller ID and puzzled for a moment. "Huh, that's weird. Unknown number."
He flipped open the phone and put it next to his ear, standing up. "Hello?..... Yes, this is he... Uh-" His eyes widened. "Yeah, hold on," he said into the phone. Then he looked to Neveah. "Hey, I have to take this. I'll be outside in the hall."
Whether or not she acknowledged him, he went out of her apartment and into the hallway.
