Linos had been shopping. It was a weird sensation, really, going shopping. He hadn’t actually shopped in ages, and even though it was just a list Sonia had written out, he didn’t mind. He had a basket with all the food in it and was making his way home, when he saw Gene standing there, the door. He watched for a few minutes in confusion. He had told Gene to come visit, sure, but he didn’t actually expect for it to happen.
But it was a pleasant surprise, and Linos couldn’t help but smile, as he called, “Don’t be a stranger! Just knock on the door–Sonia or Jerry will let you in, you know.”
