RESIDENT APPLICATIONGARRETT, kayleigh louise14 july 1989 || F || fourth floorwelcome to harrington apartments. before you sign the lease,
I have just a few questions for you. I hope that's okay?
''can't you ask my mum those questions? i'm seriously not
in the mood for this. i've kinda been in a bad mood ever since ...
well y'know what, you really don't want to hear this, and i really
don't wanna tell you. maybe later kay? but if you must ask
your questions, then go right ahead. i might humor you. always look at the bright
side of things, right? yeah. thought so to.''first of all, what brings you to this part of new york?
if I didn't know better, I'd say you were new to the city.
''well we've always lived here in new york, we've just never lived in this apartment complex.
or whatever you want to call it. but yeah, the reason we're here? well, that's what i didn't
want to talk about just now. but i'll humor you, as promised. my dad. he died. and so mum
decided that she wanted to get out of the house where we used to live in, and instead we
ended up here. so yeah, we'renot really new, but we're definitely new to the building.
i've still to decide what i think of it all though. i'm not too sure. but at least there's people
to hang out with, i guess. so yeah. my dad dying, that's what brings us to this part of new york.''interesting. so is it just you moving in or is there someone
set to follow you?
''i'm living with my mother, my older sister and my younger brother. i guess it's alright,
but it's a change from our normal house to go to this apartment. and we're all still getting
used to things so to say that there's no tension at all, that would be a bit of a lie. but we're
managing as far as i'm concerned. and it's always nice to move to a new part of town, so
i guess ... the change of environment will do us good. even if we're still ... not used to dad
not being around. at least, i know i'm not used to it. and i think i speak for us all when i say
we will miss him like mad.''I see...well just remember, it's your name on the lease so
any damage to the place is your responsibility. and speaking
of damage, have you perhaps brought any companions of a
four-legged nature with you?
''eh ... well, to be honest, i thought animals weren't allowed, but they are apparently, so
when i heard that i decided that my doggy was certainly coming along. he's a border collie,
his name is murdock, or just doc, and he's my baby. he's a dork really. so yeah, we do have a
'companion of a four-legged nature', so there. he drives mum insane though, but i'm glad i was
allowed to bring him anyway. coz well, i wouldn't have wanted to loose him too.''okay. now, getting a little more personal, what sort of person
are you? say, if you had to describe yourself in five words, what
would they be?
''five words? wow, you think that's enough to cover a person's entire personality? oh well,
i guess i'll give it a go then. number one would be out-going. because i'm far from shy and
i love voicing my opinion and i'm not afraid to speak my mind and i'm all about having some
fun. i always say; ''some laughter a day keeps the doctor away''. i'm not a big fan of apples
y'see? yeah, so i'm very much out-going, though i must admit i've toned down a bit after ... well
y'know, my dad died. numbero two would be .... creative? that's a personality treat isn't it? i say
it is. so yeah. i'm kinda creative. not necessarily because my artistic skills are so amazing, even
though i'm pretty good at sketching and making doodling and all. but i mean creative more in the sense
of writing. lyrics mostly. and does singing fall under creative? i say it does. so that counts as well.
okay! two down, three to go. number three i think... sarcastic. coz i'm a very, very sarcastic kind
of person, and it's one of the first things you'll notice about me. sarcasm is your best friends. trust me
on that. it helps you get through things. it's amazing. okay. three down, two to go. yay past half! awesome.
now then. number four ... let me think. oh i've got one! impulsive. i love that word y'know? but yes, i'm
very impulsive. i'm not the kind of person to think things through, if i like something, i go with it. and i'm no
coward, so i'll do pretty much anything people ask me to. and the fifth part of me? i guess you could say...
i'm temperamental? which basically just means i've got one hell of a temper and you really shouldn't
piss me off. coz i can seriously get really really pissed off over things easily. if you know how to piss me
off, well then you should just stay the hell away coz i might have your head. and ... i guess, i only get five
words right? ah bummer. okay. so i guess that's it. hope that helped.''sounds like you'll fit in perfectly here. so let's talk likes and dislikes.
give me some of yours.
''well gee. what kind of survey is this man? i just want to move in here already. ah well, what
i like? i like a lot of things. i like ... going out and partying. it's fun, as long as you do it with friends
at least. that's my opinion anyway. now. i like food. i might not look the part, but i can eat a whole horse
whenever i'm hungry. i also looove movies. the silly ones, the action ones, the ones with the hot acors, all
of 'em. what else what else eh ... my family. oh of course! yes, my family. i love them to pieces, and i just
want to look after them. and well ... i like lots of other things really. comic books, movie nights, just hanging out with friends, just ... doing fun stuff. pushing my own limits. i love doing that too. and just ...
y'know. having fun. now what i don't
like. there's tons of things i don't like. let me just list them for
you. on number one there is prejudices. i hate prejudices. because people judge you on the way you look
and it absolutely fails. stupid assholes. i don't like bad food. coz well, i love good food and i hate food
poisoning, so yeah. bad food. bad bad. i don't like tearjerkers when i'm in a sad mood. coz it makes me
cry and i don't like crying. especially not in public. i also don't like the way rich kids like to flaunt whatever it
is they have. y'know? it's stupid. thanks to daddy i'm kinda rich as well, but i don't flaunt it. i'm just me. oh
and that brings me to my last thing. i hate being reminded of how dad's ... not here anymore. i don't like it.
i hated his funeral. i believe you have to celebrate life. not mourn it ... it's stupid. i don't want to reminded
of it. so yeah. oh and i don't like weak girls who keep coming back to their abusive boyfriends and then
complain about them. yeah that's kinda specific and everything, but whatever. i knew a girl who was like
that once and i just felt like slapping some sense into her. i almost did it too. ah well.''sounds good. at least you didn't say turtle farming like one old
gentleman who used to live here. and what about the old romance,
eh? are we going to see a different person leaving your apartment
''i'm single, thanks very much. i haven't dated a guy in a while actually, but it's not like i need guys. or girls.
coz y'know, i'm not too picky about gender, it's both kinda amazing. and y'know how they always say you'll
always find the one? i think it's stupid people limit their options by just going for one gender. so that's my
reasoning as far as that goes. so yeah. in official terms, i'm bi-sexual. live with it baby. i'm not entirely against flings or one-night-stands (though someone should explain to me what the damned difference is)
because well if you're in the mood for some stress relief then it's pretty damned brilliant. just make it
obvious both parties know it's nothing serious and all problems are solved. also, never with friends. simple
as. because that only leads to drama. but yeah, as all girls, i love being sweeped off my feet. or well, as all
girls ... i think there's plenty of guys that love being swept of their feet just as well. but still. every girl wants
her prince charming. or princess charming. or whatever you call the female variant of that. whatever. so
yeah. i don't know. long term is definitely a go with me, though you'll need to earn my trust. i'm pretty
trusting though, so don't make too big of a deal out of that.''well each to their own, I always say. so, I hate to ask this but the
insurance company demands it: is there anything we should know
about you? anything you're not telling anyone else? I promise, my
lips are sealed.
''hm. well i don't have too big secrets really. but there's one secret that i'm keeping from my family, and it's
to do with dad dying. i mean, i'm good at pretending that everything's fine but i'm just doing my best to
stay strong for the rest. i mean, mum's a mess we can all see that so i'm just ... distracting m'self, y'know?
i help out at home as much as i can, and i've definitely toned down a lot with my going out and everything,
and i'm just keeping everything bottled up, and i know that isn't the kind of fun secret you were waiting for,
but yeah. i mean, other random secrets would be that me and some friends once stole the answer to a big
ass test, that i was once as high as was possible when i was just twelve, and well, other random stuff like
that but fuck man, this is new york. drama and stuff like that, it happens here all the time. okay. so I guess
thereís a bit more. i donít much like talking about this but Ö well, sometimes iím glad that dad isnít there
anymore. i mean, before he died, which was a very recent thing by the way, he Ö well we had an
argument, and he pushed me down the stairs. i told everyone i fell, but it was him pushing me, and so
yes, him being dead Ö itís not always a bad thing in my mind. it wasnít just that one time thing though,
but usually things didnít get as out of hand as him having to push me down the stairs, but well Ö thatís in
the past now. thankfully. doesnít change the fact that i miss him though.''thank you. I know that can't have been easy. so before I let you
go get settled in, is there anything else you think I should know?
''ehm ... go easy on my siblings and my mum? we're all going through quite something right now, so i
guess some peace and quiet would be appreciated. and ... well, thanks for letting me keep murdock at the
apartment? other than that, i really don't think i have anything else to say? i just want to get settled in now
please.''how interesting. oh, and one more thing - if you could name one
ideal housewarming present, what would it be and why?
''a puppy? no wait, i have murdock already. then.... i don't know. my dad would be great, but i know that's
not at all possible. but if that can't be done then i would love ... a life supply of chocolate! oh that would be
so kinda awesome. and ... i would love for there to be something for my family. i don't know what. just,
something small for the lot of them. just to make 'em feel at home. to make 'em feel safe. that would be
great.''that's wonderful. well, here are your keys and welcome to harrington.
shout if you need anything.
''okay thank you! i guess that wasn't as bad as i thought it would be. we'll try and make as less mess as
we can muster. you have my word on that. and i definitely will get in touch if i need anything.''GUARANTOR
