I don't think it was the best year for either of us.
Tue Jan 17, 2017 14:44

John had to bite his tongue again when Pye said he was surprised. He supposed Pye was surprised. He had been surprised to discover that he’d probably been ordered to allow a werewolf to move into his room without being told the most important word in that sentence up front. He thought his surprise had been a tad nastier than Pye’s, all things considered.

He did not say it. Reasonably, he understood why he had not been told up front, he supposed. If John spread it about that Jax was a werewolf, there would be trouble. Serious trouble. Unless everyone else already knew and John was just slow on the uptake; normally that would be a reasonable supposition, but John thought he knew enough about people to safely assume it was not the case right now. A lot of people would probably throw fits if they knew there was a werewolf among them. They were not throwing fits of a magnitude even he could observe, so therefore, most of them probably did not know his roommate was a werewolf.

He was not quite sure what to make of Pye’s response to his charts, but dismissed that in favor of a more immediate problem. “Irrelevant data,” said John when asked what his feelings might be if that were the case. “Emotions, I mean,” he added, realizing that Pye would not realize what he meant. “Since you ask, though….” John was tapping his fingers on his knee again, and his knee was bouncing up and down, but he didn’t quite notice. “I am annoyed,” he said. “Should have put it together ages ago – plus I think Joe and Julian and – Clark would all say it’s rude to ask your roommate for hair, blood, and tissue samples.” John tilted his head to one side, then shook it, dismissing a half-formed thought. “I assume he’s medicated and he has no reason to alter his behavior toward me and we don’t exchange bodily fluids, so while I did spend a while, um, praying wrong after I analyzed my data, I’m not…much worried, if that’s what you were actually asking,” he added. “And if any of this is…actually the case.

                Pye was being annoying. As far as John was concerned, the issue was settled: John did not want to talk to Jax about the problem that didn’t exist, Pye insisted that they must talk to Jax about the... more
