Sean was waiting at a bus stop, which happened to be his least favorite pastime. It wouldn't have been that bad, but the bus was at least five minutes late. A cigarette dangled out of Sean's lips as he stared down the street. Sean was starting to regret coming all the way out here. He had spent so much time in the studio today, he probably should have just headed home. Sean's stomach had other plans though. Needless to say, Sean ended up in China Town chasing after some chow mein from his favorite Chinese joint. It's a shame it had to be so far away from the studio and home. When Sean had a roommate he could just bum some food off of him, but now that Sean was out a roommate his fridge was perpetually empty.

At least it was nice enough outside. Today was one of those days where Sean looked outside in the morning, and could tell right then and there, today would be swell. He threw on a white button up shirt, pastel yellow tie, some jeans and a navy blue cardigan and jetted for the door. He checked his phone. No texts or calls. Which meant no cancellations. That was the worst. When an artist canceled Sean would have nothing to do, and no money either. Of course, he'd usually call up whoever was gonna be in later today and jump them in early. Today though, it looked like no cancellations. So Sean slipped on some sneakers and headed out the door.

Twelve hours later, and there Sean was. Cigarette dangling from his lips, takeout in one hand, the other holding his phone to confirm the time. Yep. the 6:43pm was about eight minutes late. Things hadn't gone bad today. All his clients showed up today. He even ended up selling a beat to some rapper. Not someone any good. But someone with money. Sean would feel like his artistic integrity was in question, but he knew better. Sean only broke out the good material to artists that deserved it. He usually kept a few generic rap beats stored in his hard drive for the MC Focuz's of the world. Or was it Fokus? Who knew. All these rappers with their odd rap names. Slick Rick is a great rap name. Aesop Rock is a great. Wocka Flocka Flame was not. Where was the damn bus? Sean was losing his mind here. At least anyone running late could still catch it.

Branwen was running a little late for the bus, and it was just her luck that the bus was also running late. She was used to that in this area, though. One could not really make a schedule based off of the bus because it was so infrequent on its times. A little sigh of relief slipped from Branwen as she saw that there was still someone waiting on the bus, meaning that she had not missed it.

Her search for another apartment had made her run a little behind, and it was definately not going so well. She had looked at three places already that day, and so far there weren't any that were in good condition that were also in her price range. After all, she only made so much money selling comic strips to the local papers. And, she still hadn't gotten anyone to publish her graphic novels yet. Branwen was sure that once they were published, though, she would be making more income. "Hey... Late as always, huh?" Branwen spoke to the guy that was waiting at the bus stop as she took a seat on the bench.

Once Branwen was settled on the bench, she pulled out her sketch pad to continue working on her graphic novel. She wasn't really worried about the bus running late, as this guy probably was, since she was just taking her time with apartment hunting. She wasn't running on a schedule, and so she didn't have to worry about being late to any specific place. The people she was going to have show her the apartments all told her to just call them when she was in the area, and that is what she was planning on doing. As Branwen continued on her sketch of a graveyard with a ghost girl fighting some demons, she spoke to the guy waiting there again, "Smoking's bad for your health." She said it in more of a teasing manner, though. There was even that hint in her voice that should let the other know that she was just teasing.

Besides, although Branwen didn't smoke cigarettes, she did smoke... Just a different sort of smoke that could not really be done out in public. Of course he wouldn't know that, though. However, one might be able to guess such a thing just from how Branwen looked and acted. After all, she had the messy hair and hippie type style of a modern stoner. Though, she still didn't consider herself a stoner. Just a recreational smoker, really.
