Finding a roommate was a daunting task - who could she trust after what she had been through?

(Something like this might work.)

(Could be Darren maybe it turned out to be a long lost friend from her childhood)

Sighing she sat down to think about who she could invite in. What if the person she invited in turned out to be a jerk.

It was a risk she had to take. A screening of sorts would have to be done - once she had a few names. Maybe the university forums had some ads?

(Darren or no)?

She got up and went to her brother's computer which was still on. Maybe the university had an add about how many people were looking for a place to stay.

Placing an ad on the university forums would be a good idea as well - she'd be less likely to waste time talking to students who already found something, but did not bother to remove their ads.

(Should work)

(Maybe he's the one that's looking on the site and calls her back)

It took her a few moments before she found the right site and then started her add. She would not let anyone sleep in the room her brother used but a different one.

Posting the add took not much time, then it was back to waiting. A few glances at some other ads was a mixed experience - some of the contact ads were almost frightening, those had to be jokes! Others were like encrypted messages. Should she post the real adress too, or wait until there were interested people? Most would know that it was here where her brother...

She thought it would be best to wait to give her address to someone who might be interested. Someone that attempted to contact her might be a little weird and she might get into trouble. Slowly she pulled herself away from the computer and headed downstairs. Her stomach made a noise and even though she was hungry she did not want to eat.

Time passed, until the sun had set and her phone started to ring.

She had almost fallen asleep on the couch and answered the phone. "Hello?"

"This is Darren. You left a message on the machine." No further words, just silence, waiting.

"Yeah. I think you knew my brother I was just wondering why?" She asked quietly not knowing how to tell him.

"We share..d some of the same interests." The boy's - or man's - voice was deep, and serious, but there was a hint of levity, or amusement, in it.

"I just thought I would let you know he died about a week ago." She was bad at telling bad news like this but what could she do?

"I heard about it." The voice was serious still, but there was no shock in it. "Tragic." The last word had as much sincerity in it as the usual answer to "how do you do?"

(No, I just wanted to say that he doesn't sound that truthful - like the "Fine" one usually hears when one asks a casual acquaintance "How do you do", regardless of how they are actually doing.)

"I'm sorry to have bothered you. I'll let you go." Her voice sounded so lonely and ready to cry again.

"To let me go you would have had to have caught me first. But the only thing you have caught so far is my interest." The mocking unertone is very faint, buried under what seems to be honest interest, yet tainted with some attitude of superiority.

A small smile crept across her lips as he said those words. "Your interest eh?" Maybe there was some good that came out of her brother's death.

"Yes." That single word held a lot of meaning. A promise, a tease, a desire. Darren paused just long enough to let her catch all of them, then continued "I also wonder... how did you know I know, knew your brother?"

She caught the meaning of the word and smiled slightly. "Oh he had your number written on a pad of paper." She half told the truth because it was etched in the paper underneath.

"Did he? That was bad of him. He shouldn't do that." There was some hint of amusement - as if he did not believe her completely. "But we should meet to talk in person, talking over the phone is so ... distant."

"Yeah I completely agree. Why don't you come over then?" She seemed to enjoy having someone around and he was coming over.

"Is that an invitation?" There was an oddly formal slant to the question.
