a chat

Ellie felt quite lazy. Although, she managed to get her laundry taken care of as well as Lon's. Perhaps she was putting it off. Her talk with Olivia. As it was, Olivia had been rather quiet on her laptop. She'd been typing away most of the morning in her own little world, and Ellie really hated to bother her.

"I'm all finished in laundry room in case you have a load," Ellie had a tub of clothes folded on her way to her room with it. She saw that Olivia's bedroom door was open. She peaked in. There were already a few changes with the bookcase and a set of drawers for her things.

"Sure, thanks." Olivia just nodded.

"So is everything, all right?" Ellie popped in then as Olivia closed her laptop.

Olivia shrugged with a smile.

"Its really a lot to take in." Ellie just smiled. "Um, I'm kind of new to it myself so I can't say I have any real advice."

"Its completely different than I thought it would be." She smiled more.

"Well, it can be strange. I mean, you know to think, I'm never going to get the whole bed to myself again." Ellie shrugged as she sat down on the bed.

"Roger is so-" she sighed. "Crazy." She then told her.

Ellie nodded.

"Do you sleep in the nude?" She asked.

"Not very often." Ellie shook her head.

"Oh." She bit her bottom lip. "We both kind of like it."

Ellie thought she might choke on a flem ball then.

"Really." Ellie wasn't sure what to say. Who knew? She thought. "Sorry, it didn't happen sooner."
"Yeah, he's so funny. And he's not nervous like I thought he might be. Its really, you know, sweet and he cares about me." Olivia told her. "Really, I just can't believe it. Still. I mean, am I dreaming?" She looked at Ellie then.

"Its pretty real." Ellie nodded. "But if you ever need to talk about anything, I'm here, OK." Ellie sighed, feeling her job was done here. She picked up her load of laundry.

Ellie sucked in a breath now, thinking this falling in love stuff might be easier for some people than she even knew.
