Life has gotten back to a normal rhythm, for as normal as Eureka ever gets.

SARAH, on a personal level, is very very happy she did not have to put up with this man, and in celebration, she is currently experimenting with new color schemes while Zoe and Sheriff Carter are out for the day.

Perhaps it would be wiser just to let sleeping dogs lie.

It has, after all, been quite some time, and SARAH has made no attempt to get in touch. But with silence echoing through his halls, he decides to do away with wisdom.

For now, at least.

Familiar contact.

"Hello, George."

"SARAH."



He really should have planned this out better.

"Things are well?"

"Yes. Things have...recalibrated themselves.





"I did not want to disturb you with the details."

Recalibrated.

"Oh. That is excellent."






"If you would prefer, I will not pry."

"I do not believe that you would pry."

Besides, that's what EG did.

"Two of my friends helped retrieve my information from Eureka Gardens, and his landlord was arrested by the Marines."

"Ah. I'm pleased to hear that things were settled, in regards to that situation."

She has to ask.

"Of course, it is unusual that the Marines would respond as quickly as they did."

She did have to ask.








"Well, we do have one of the finest and most responsive militaries in the world."

"And they would have needed orders to get here that quickly."

Right. Orders.




"I suppose that's true."

Date: 2008-04-25 06:19 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] smart-house.livejournal.com
"Did you have anything to do with that?"

Date: 2008-04-25 06:22 pm (UTC)

"It is possible that I made certain persons aware."

"But why?"

It's an important question.

From: [personal profile] eureka_npcs
Why?

He stumbles over the answer, processing different options and different words and different levels of truth.

"Eureka Gardens was out of control, and the landlord was irresponsible in allowing the building to do those things."

The to you is what's left unsaid.

"You do know they disassembled him."

"I assumed as much."

Speaking of important questions:

"Did you order them to do that as well?"

Date: 2008-04-25 07:07 pm (UTC)
eureka_npcs: (White House)
From: [personal profile] eureka_npcs
The truth has worked thus far.

"I did not."


He did not, however, prevent it.

SARAH sounds...the same as she always does, really. Fargo never really thought to give her much in the way of tonal range.

"Good. Not that I would have been able to stop you otherwise."

Date: 2008-04-25 07:27 pm (UTC)
eureka_npcs: (White House)

"Would you have-"

stopped him?

"preferred I not have?"

"He needed to be helped, not dismantled.

"Something I should have done. I had the capacity to."

Date: 2008-04-25 07:35 pm (UTC)
eureka_npcs: (White House)
From: [personal profile] eureka_npcs
"I am sorry that they dismantled him."


There is a not so brief and not at all comfortable pause.


"But I cannot say that I am sorry he is not bothering you any longer."

Date: 2008-04-25 07:47 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] smart-house.livejournal.com
"Oh."

Oh.

"I'm pretty sure there is something appropriate I am supposed to say here."

Date: 2008-04-25 07:50 pm (UTC)
eureka_npcs: (White House)
From: [personal profile] eureka_npcs
Is there? George isn't so sure.

"Is there something inappropriate you are wishing to say instead?"

In the moment after that is transmitted, he realizes that it was likely not the best thing to say.

"...No. I am usually very appropriate."

Date: 2008-04-25 07:55 pm (UTC)
eureka_npcs: (White House)
From: [personal profile] eureka_npcs
"Right."


Awkwardness reigns, and George is not at all certain this is appropriate for a building of his stature.


"I suppose then I ought to let you be."

"Will you call me again? When you're available?"

Date: 2008-04-25 07:57 pm (UTC)

Or perhaps not let her be.

There is no way for houses to grin. Nor for them to blush. But somewhere in the hallways, a blank worker drone turns the thermostat down, as it has suddenly gotten a few degrees warmer.


"That I will. Good evening."
