    Moving out had been the main thing on Jana's mind the minute her tirade in the kitchen had ended. Just being in the house, surrounded by memmories of times once had hurt more than the actual leaving. It left her and Livewire to always be reminded that they weren't good enough. That those that said the loved them, had abandoned them. It was both painful, and just plain unhealthy. She had wanted Livewire to see this, but had been unable to express it. So the young adult had let it go and ignored it until the pain had come to great. In the end, it was Livewire who started to conversation about them moving. Both sisters had agreed on leaving, moving into the inn. So the leaving process had begun.

    Packing had almost been worse than deciding whether or not to stay. Every trinket and cup held another memory. Jana and a human Livewire making cupcakes as Overcast and Swindle watched. Each kiss good night; hug after a stressful day. Swindle and Overcast wiping frosting on his daughters noses, watching as they tried to lick it off with little success. Happiness and some laughter seeped out at the memories, but there was also an underlining hint of anger and sadness. Leaving wouldn't make them go away completely, but it was going to help. It had to.

    When they had finished packing after what had seemed like hours, Livewire left. The two of them had agreed to split up. Livewire would go to Zurg for help, and Jana would bring the boxes to the inn, sign in, and unpack. Livewire would meet them when she was done with the ex-emporer. Jana was not to be alone when she left the house. She asked Aya to accompany her, and Aya graciously complied with the request.

    Leaving had been near impossible for the girl. After she had packed, the cyborg had stood in her parents room unmoving. Memories would again flood her brain. Waking up Overcast with a pounce on mothers day with pancakes waiting downstairs. Bringing Swindle the morning paper on fathers day. The memories had seemed so far away. Heaving a heavy sigh, the cyborg had left the room, dragging the boxes out to the curb. Aya had shown up then. After one last look at the place Jana had called a home for so long, they had been off.

    The two now stood in front of the inn with Juju wrapped around Jana's neck as she stared up at the building. A new home and a new start still seemed so far away...

    What to do, what would one do? A circumstance such as this...was not something the vampiress liked to think would happen or ever desire to occur. Two children or rather not children anymore but near adults in some sense had lost something precious but they were not alone. They had each other, though sometimes it might seem like very little it was in fact a great deal more than some had to their own names. Aya had found it distressing to figure out how to approach either Jana or Livewire when she was told of how they had lost both parents, she knew that going to wrap them in an embrace and soothe wounds would do no good. So in it left the draculina to wait in a limbo of doubt until the girls came out from the dwelling of their own accord. Somethings just needed to be dealt with first or allowing a acclimation to the situation tide over.

    However she had offered her help, anything they needed and her home with open arms if they ever came to need it. Help from a friend was always better in offering to be a gentle reminder of how their were still many a person awaiting to support you no matter what. This, she felt was what was needed. Aya now awaited after agreeing without hesitation to help Jana and Livewire move into the Inn, a very wise choice it was a great deal safer and frankly it made her a little less worried of how to be able to check on them if something worse came to pass. She stood silently next to Jana, looking at the Inn for a long moment before turning a kind gaze towards the cyborg and her Juju pet were looking onwards. It must be hard, and perhaps no one would really understand exactly how they felt but that was completely normal she figured, yes quite so. The Inn was a nice place to live, and hopefully Jana and Livewire would be able to begin the mending of their broken hearts with plenty of support around them.

    "It is a very nice place, the staff are very nice as well. And there is plenty of things and food here for you as well." She didn't want to rattle of things like some windy old bag. Aya was a little unsure of what to exactly say to Jana at this point, the last thing she wanted was to cause anymore pain for the poor thing. "It...Uhm. There are four floors...have you thought about which one you and Livewire wanted to look at? There are many rooms to choose from too." She paused and cast a glace back towards the Inn, the bell in particular. It might have been best to stand and wait awhile, to let the idea of this being the place she would be living sink in a little deeper.

    The cyborg nodded as Aya explained a little about the inn. It was nice to know they provided food and security. Though Energon might not be something they'd stocked...she'd have to ask about that.

    "Second floor." It seemed like a good choice to her. Not too close to the ground floor, not too close to the top. Less time to get to and from. No one she knew was on the second floor, as far as she knew, which meant she and her sister wouldn't run into anyone in the hall. That usually led to speaking and...Jana was not ready for that.

    Jana continued to stare up at the inn. It was time for her to move on. The longer she stood and stared, the harder it would be to go in. Heaving a large sigh, she looked up to Aya, happy to have here there with her. It actually made her hurt a little less...

    She nodded her readiness to Aya and opened the door, allowing for Aya to go in first. When Aya went in, Jana went in as well, making a beeline to the counter. Already she could tell that the inn was going to be very cozy.

    It was a painful situation to go through, she felt as though she was dancing on coals trying to avoid anything triggering. But Jana and Livewire had made their choice to be the second floor, not to close or far though Aya being on the fourth floor could strive to visit. But when the wounds closed a little more. But the draculina would not rush, healing was not something to rush and pain would not do anything beneficial for either of the girls.

    She stood patiently by as the cyborg looked to the inn, more than likely having her internal debate over the mere motion. Hearing the sigh, her eyes looked down to Jana fraught with the lines of sadness for the girl and acknowledging the nodded she entered first waiting by the desk for Jana. Standing by, she spoke quiet as this was a cozy, peaceful environment. "Now all we do is wait for Link, he can give you and Livewire your room." It was cozy, and very peaceful.

    From within the innkeeper's office, Link heard the bell from atop the inn's front door ring and looked up just in time to see one of his fairies approach the glass window of the door that led through to the reception area.

    "It's Aya and Jana," said the fairy as she peeked in between the blinds. She turned to Link who blinked  back before his eyes went to the door. Jana...

    He had heard the news, both through the grapevine and also through Impa who had visited Jana and Livewire at the shop with Kev and Tally. He would had offer his condolences but on the Impa's advice and words, had learnt the two girls would rather be alone - a choice that Link admittedly took a bit of time to understood but respected nonetheless.

    If Jana was here then.... it could only mean one thing, right? They're moving out of the shop. With a tired sigh, the young innkeeper pushed himself out of his office chair, stretched and started his way out of the office. His fairy stayed behind and finished off the paperwork he was working on.

    "Aa!" he greeted with a wave as he emerged behind the reception desk, not too sure what kind of expression he should pull. Should he try to be cheery, sympathetic or be glum? Let's just settle for neutral for now. He pulled out his digiglass. "Hello Jana, Aya. Is there anything I can help with?"

    Even though he could guess very well why they were here, it still felt better to ask first.

    "Hey, Link." the cyborg nodded and tried her best to smile. It came out sadder than she had anticipated, so she went to a more neutral expression. Hands in her pockets and mouth in a thin line, mouth quirking up the side.

    "Livewire and I need a room...prefably on..." she paused as a thought came over her. It came to her realization that Livewire, being a Cybertronian and all, would probably not be the best match for a second floor apartment. "first floor." she nodded, sure of her choice this time.

    Jana looked towards the boxes Aya had helped her carry over. Looking at them made her realize the meager amount of things she and Livewire actually owned. The house had made it seem like they had owned so much more than they did.

    The cyborgs realized she was staring at her things, and quickly turned back to face the inn keeper.

    Link tried not to frown at seeing the sad smile appear on Jana’s face, instead he smiled back sympathetically.

    Livewire is coming too? Link nodded. He had had a few Cybertronians stay here before as well and had a bit of experience in how to accommodate them. The innkeeper was undeniably and secretly relieved to hear Jana had wanted a room on the first floor though. Explaining the problem of the larger robots’ weights and flooring not built to withstand anything but the gentlest of actions from them was always an awkward part of the room giving process for any Cybertronian. It’s not like Link thought they would run around like maniacs and prance around upstairs but he’d prefer not to have a giant transforming robots threatening to crack the ceilings and floors when they’re just doing something as innocent as falling out of bed -(do they even sleep?

    He nodded and reached into the drawers of his desk to produce two cardkeys for room 134. The boy set this on the desk alongside a form which listed the inn’s rules and information followed by a small section at the bottom which required signature:

    Room:134
    Date: July 24th, 2013
    Name: ___________________
    Signature: ________________

    That’s it. Simple and easy.

    The amount of sympathetic looks had almost been too much, but Jana never commented on them. Better to just smile back.

    The cyborg followed Link with her eyes as he retrieved the card keys and a room contract. Silently, she did her best to read the document in front of her. Some of the words she did t understand but she understood what it was saying.

    When she was dime reading' she grabbed the pen an wrote on the lines. The name written was messy, yet readable. The signature on the other hand, was mock cursive and looked more like scribbles than anything intelligible.

    "Does Livewire need to sign anythin'?"

    Jana wrote:Does Livewire need to sign anythin'?"
    Link looked at the document Jana just signed then lifted his head and gave the cyborg a satisfied smile before lightly shake his head. He took a pen and quickly note down '& Livewire' beside Jana's name on the form, signed his own signature and dated it to confirm that the cybertronian's inclusion of the room had been formally noted by himself. Now if Jana and Livewire had wanted separate rooms or if Jana left her sister her room, that's another matter entirely and the usually sunny cybertronian would need to sign on the dotted line. Though that's unlikely to happen - Jana just leaving the room to her that is.

    Wait...

    He composed a new message on his digiglass. "You'll be sharing a bedroom is that okay?" Perhaps he should have asked this sooner...

    "But it's two beds," he quickly added.

    Being the only one to sign the document made Jana feel more like Livewire's legal 'guardian' than she had before. Before she had just been another kid in a home, but now it really hit home that she was all Livewire had left, family wise. There was no one else to make sure Livewire recharged and drank Energon when she needed it. No one else to give Livewire support after a bad day. It was all up to Jana now. Sure, they had friends, but at the time she felt more distant from them than close (No offense to present company, of course). The feeling of responsibility was growing, yet on the outside she remained stoic.

    "Sharin' a bed room is ok. We sleep together anyway..." and they always had, even before this whole ordeal. Sure, the didn't always, as both needed their space time to time, but for the most part they did. Jana felt better when sleeping in the same place as Livewire. She felt safe and at home. Even with Livewire's spikey armor.

    Again, Link nodded. He didn't know what king od living arrangements Jana and Livewire had when they were with Overcast and Swindle but to hear they do not mind sharing was a sign of relief. Even if they wanted to be by themselves and he understood that feeling, he was at the very least comforted to know that they at least had each other and was not completely alone.

    "You can get free meals at the restaurant behind the stairs if you show them your cardkey," Link wrote next. No matter how long it took the girls to recover, they could rest assured that as long as they were at the inn, they would be have shelter, food and company if they so wish. Despite having cybertronians as tenants before, he wasn't very sure what they ate though....nor if they even need food to begin with.

    "Do you need any help moving in?" he offered after a while of contemplation. Whilst he understood they wanted to be left alone, surely some help would er.... help. He wasn't sure actually. If he was in their shoes, he would probably not want the help and insist in doing it by himself.... Regardless of Jana's answer, he would respect and understand their choice.

    The food was a nice touch. Jana had not even thought about whether or not they had food at the inn. Knowing that they did gave her an odd sense of relief. She wouldn't have to bother with going out to buy food like she had for the days before finding and days after losing a home. She nodded her recognition to Links writings. She doubted the inn would have energon, with it being toxic to non-Cybertronians and all, but getting that and dog food would be no problem.

    Jana looked to the amount of boxes she had with her. Help would be nice, yet Jana seemed reserved about it. She kind of just wanted to do it by herself. Just her and Livewire, Aya if she planned on it, would be enough. "Think we'll be good. Thanks though."

    Link nodded, fully understanding Jana's decision here. "If you need help, I'm right here at the reception," he added then with a final nod goodbye, he took a step back and was professionally out of Jana's business. The boy waited a few second longer to make sure he really wasn't needed then step back into his office, closing the door behind him and sighed heavily. The innkeeper raked his fingers through his poofy bangs and shook his head to clear his thoughts. Jana and Livewire will be okay. He know they would be...

    In the meantime, Link wondered if he should alert his staff to be a bit more mindful around their two newest residents or would that make them too attentive instead? He also wondered if Jana's friends knew she was now residing here and not at Swindle's. Should he inform them in their stead?

    Another sigh escaped him and he shook his head again. If conversation cropped up, maybe, if not then this was Jana and Livewire's business to tell, not his.
