Things Have Changed

Who: Cheryl and Jeremy
When: Morning
Where: Jeremy's house

Cheryl was well beyond unnerved. She had hidden away in her house for awhile, gnawing at her nails until they were bitten down to the fingers and then cleaning her "house" until her muscles ached. She didn't know why she was doing what she was doing, all she knew was that it helped take some of the tension out of her body. She wasn't sure what to make of what was happening around town, and she couldn't bring herself to arming herself either. A part of her felt like she didn't deserve to have protection, but then again, she was in the same boat as everyone else. She wasn't watching this time. She hadn't slept in almost two days but for a few hours here and there, and she was determined not to unload on Drew or Jeremy, neither of which she had seen much of other than when they came to check on her before. After awhile though, it became too much to bear and she left her house, crossing through the yard that separated them, to knock on Jeremy's door. Cheryl felt if she didn't talk, or have some kind of human contact, she was going to end up going crazy and having another breakdown, and she didn't want to end up in that hospital again.

Fighting for Normal

Who: Jeremy and Cheryl
What: A small visit
When: Shortly after noon

It was a bit cold out and Jeremy huddled in his coat and quickened his pace as he headed to Cheryl's house. He knocked and as soon as the door opened, held up a bag of goods. "If you have coffee, I have bagels," he told her with a smile. It was another brave attempt at being social and maybe a little normal too.

The Door Is Always Open


Who: Jeremy and Cheryl
When: Evening
Where: Jeremy's house

It didn't take long for Cheryl to make the decision to go over to Jeremy's house. As the sun was setting, she was getting a bit anxious at being left alone again and while a part of her wanted to run to Drew, she knew the guy was dealing with enough that he didn't need her clinging to him all night. And after seeing the response to Jeremy's confession on the journaling system, she took a guess that he might need someone too.
