Gaia picked up her phone and dialled her best friend's number.
"Hey girl! What's up?" said the voice on the other end.
"Hi, Dina. Nothing much. I'm still trying to find a roomate for my new house in Windenburg" Gaia sighed.
"Still? Is there anything I can do to help?"
"Not unless you know someone who's looking for a place to live in Windenburg, but can't afford to pay the rent by themselves - like me"
"Hah! I can't believe I didn't think of this sooner" Dina burst out. "I actually have a friend who meets your criteria"
"Really?!" Gaia said enthusiastically.
"Yeah! He's a cheerful and outdoorsy guy..." Dina started, but got interrupted by Gaia's hesitant voice.
"A guy? You want me to move in with a guy?"
"What's wrong with that? He's super nice and funny. If I were in your situation, I'd love to have him as my roommate" Dina said encouragingly.
"But moving in with a strange man... I don't know..." Gaia still hesitated. "What if he tries to hit on me?"
"Haha, Gaia! You're such a prude! But don't worry - I'm pretty sure he's gay. He won't bother you in that way"
"I'm not a prude" Gaia protested. "I just haven't found the right guy for me yet. And are you sure he's gay?"
"Yep. I'm like 99.9% sure. Otherwise, he would've hit on me already" Dina said confidently.
Gaia shook her head, laughed silently and replied: "Not all guys want to hit on you, Dina"
"Why wouldn't they? I'm F-I-N-E" she said cockily, emphasizing each letter of the word. "Anyway, I'll text you his number, and I'll ask him to come over to your new house tomorrow. Maybe you can do a trial run with a sleepover first?"
"Sure, I can agree to that. And thank you so much, Dina. You're the best!"
"I know, right? Oh, and his name is Ouranos, by the way. I totally forgot to mention that" Dina laughed. "Laters!"
Gaia said goodbye and hung up the phone. "Ouranos" she thought. "What an interesting name"
"Ouranos" she said out loud, trying to get a feel on his name. "I sure hope this will work out"
The following day, Ouranos arrived at the Havisham house in Windenburg, and Gaia went outside to meet him.
