It was an ordinary day for Hunter, it was a weekend, which was good because it meant he didn't have to do anything. He had slept in late and now he had a pair of headphones on as he watched T.V. His parents had always asked him why and he had always made excuses but the real reason was simple enough. Headphones were a flashing neon sign saying; 'I am not paying attention to you.' That tended to make people leave him alone. And it was subtle enough that people were, more often than not annoyed. Yes, Hunter was a master at getting people to leave him alone, as the T.V. droned on he reflected on this fact with a sense of pride.
He changed the channel to something more interesting when the doorbell rang. He looked over at the door as if questioning why it was disturbing him. It didn't help and he sighed and got up. He adjusted his headphones, even if he had to pay attention to someone the effect was still present in the back of their minds, he felt. He walked up to the door and cracked it, not removing the chain so it couldn't open all the way. He saw a girl with a suitcase. His first reaction was that she was a salesman but then something in her manner told him she wasn't. He said, with dry sarcasm, "What are you, my long lost sister, come to freeload off me?"
