Drabble: New Neighbor

New Neighbor

“Welcome to the building! I’m Eric, I live down in unit six.”

“Oh, thanks. I’m Joseph.”

“You need a hand unload–”

“No!” shouted Joseph. “I mean, no thanks, I’ve got it. Thanks for offering, though!”

Eric went back to his room. He glanced at the costume balled up in the hamper. It was good for to meet friendly city-dwellers like Joseph. It reminded him why he risked his hide every night.

Joseph finished carrying in his equipment. This place wasn’t much of a lair, but it was lower profile than the one that caped do-gooder had just destroyed.
