After I met her, I knew why her ad was unanswered by the locals. She is unpleasant; a nitpicky perfectionist snob with a mean streak a kilometer wide. I asked her who was nice to know in town, she only had a couple of people she could name as friends. But her enemy list took her five deadly dull minutes to recite.
She said she had a housemate before, a guy called Antonio. He went to work one day and never came back. I'll have to look him up later and see if he has space, where ever he landed. He'll definitely be better company than Miss I-Know-It-All perfectionist.
So that takes care of priority one; sort out how the bills will be paid in future.
My second priority is simply to get a feel for the town.
Everyone I chatted to has very nice, it's a friendly little community here.
Well, it did work this time, I caught a few interesting remarks from a couple chatting nearby.
I also took a tiny case, someone wanted someone else to stop being so mean in their chat rooms. I spent longer running around town trying to catch the guy to report the results then I did solving his case. I've only started, I hope more interesting stuff comes along.
That's pretty much the summary. I stopped by the science centre for a quick education in logic. They said I had a long way to go in that skill. I also stopped at city hall for some training in charisma. I've heard it said that a bit of charm and old fashioned manners can open doors that otherwise stay firmly shut.
