Tess watched as Billie looked the place over, but soon she started to do the same thing. Tess was giving the place that last look over, making sure everything was in it's rightful place, which it seemed like everything was. When Billie thanked Tess for letting her stay, Tess's gaze looked back to Billie, and she smiled.
"It's no problem, you're welcome to stay as long as you'd like... As long as you're not a pain to live with" she said, joking over her last words. But of course, even though Tess's last words were meant as a joke, there was obviously some truth in it. I mean seriously, who would want someone to stay in their home if they're not nice to live with?
With the compliment over her home, Tess smiled fondly while looking the living room over once again. "Thank you, I do take a lot of pride in my home, so it's always nice to hear others like it" she replied while looking back to Billie. "I suppose I best tell you the rules?" yes, there are rules to staying in Teresina Sistiani's home! "Don't worry, there aren't many, I just simply ask that you put things back where you found them if you ever do move anything, if you go out and you get in late try and be quiet as I will probably be in bed. And just clean up after yourself... Oh, and one more thing, very important....... No one is allowed in the house".
Tess was iffy about having family here, strangers, other kids and teens what-have-you, they were a world of no to coming into this house.
