100 Tenderness

As 1731 blinks in the corner of Bodhi's screen, Noe comes sprinting through the apartment door. The whirlwind Noe picks up overturns the cushions and sends Bodhi's holographic device flying across the apartment and into the kitchen sink.

"Where's Daniel?" Noe pants. Before Noe knew it, hours had ticked by at Sympathy. Maybe it was his walk around campus, or liberating the ghosts that consumed his time. Either way, Noe was going to be late if he wasted even a moment! 

Getting up to fetch his device, Bodhi responds, "Daniel left half an hour ago."
