After working out, Justin shows the latest gains he’s made to his housemate, Samir. Samir seems impressed and possibly inspired to start exercising more. Justin is making steady progress on his bodybuilding goal to reach peak physical potential.
The morning after GeekCon, Miko watches Justin making breakfast for them both, after a whirlwind night of passion at his apartment. Miko isn’t shy about casual hookups with guys she just met, as she can sense immediately whether a guy is good for her or not.
The GeekCon festival happens right outside Miko’s apartment building, and she loves seeing all the amazing costumes people are wearing. While resting on a couch, Miko is joined by a handsome guy who introduces himself. Justin Thorne starts a debate about who Miko thinks is the best sci-fi captain and they end up geeking out over sci-fi trivia.
Justin Thorne introduces himself to Rose Monroe while having a drink at The Solar Flare lounge. Justin mentions he just got promoted to be a locker room attendant for The Other Sports Team. Rose is super into sports, and loves that team! After some gossiping about athletes and some flirting, Rose gives Justin her phone number.
Justin gets an invitation to breakfast at Sunny Side Up Diner from co-worker Babs L’Amour. She’s one of the high profile athletes at the sports team he’s working at as a waterperson. Justin wonders if she treats all new colleagues to breakfast dates, or maybe she’s interested in him?
The neighbours arrive to welcome the housemates to the Arts Quarter. Genji Fujita and Salim Benali live in the other apartments on their floor, while Khaled Assaoui lives in Hakim House on the other side of the district. Khaled brings along a fruitcake as a welcome gift.
Justin is lucky and gets the largest bedroom in the apartment. It’s the perfect size to accommodate all of his home gym equipment. With a good daily workout routine, he’s sure to achieve his goal of reaching maximum body potential.
After moving in, the new housemates of 930 Medina Studios take a moment to admire their new apartment. Samir can tell that it has been recently redecorated, Ayaka loves the open layout and Justin really likes the modern furnishings and decor.
