There was something strange about a boy's bedroom. There was of course the smell* but more than that, the very atmosphere seemed to ooze Boy. And Johnny's room was no exception. Sprawled out across his bed, Coraline turned the page of the comic and rolled over so her head dangled precariously off one edge and her legs off the other. Sighing, Coraline kicked off her wellies with one foot and then wriggled about trying to make herself as comfortable as possible as she waited for Johnny to show up.

Because the thing about having a boyfriend, a boyfriend like Johnny that is, was to make things as unexpected as possible. Mostly because peril made him act very, terribly attractive but also because it was fun. So, she had planned to go on an adventure into dino territory with him to distract herself and also because fun but Johnny seemed to have a sixth sense about these things and always managed to make himself scarce. But he couldn't make himself scarce from his own bedroom, Coraline was very sure of that. So, she was waiting for him.

And waiting.

And waiting.

Coraline was waiting and bored. A deadly combination. She had already counted all the socks, found the pile of comics and read most of the very cool ones and she had written Johnny a love poem before tearing it up into tiny, tiny pieces so that he never read it*. And now she was waiting. And waiting. And waiting. And- oh, door.

"Hullo, did you know you have thirty three pairs of mismatched socks? Can you call them a pair if they're mismatched? Well, sixty six. I think some of them might be mine. I think you might have a sock monster, it's probably lurking under the bed." Coraline said, turning the page of the comic before looking up at Johnny with a smile. "Did you want to go on an adventure?"

*A lingering sort of smell that seemed to appear in any Teenage Boy's bedroom after a day of them inhabiting it. Even if the boy was clean and hygienic the smell still sort of appeared, a smell that indicated Boy and Teenage without actually having a discernible cause.

**Because not very many things rhyme with Johnny. And it was also very embarassing.
