Seven Sentence Sunday

From a WIP I'm hoping to publish in December:

When I put up the flyers at the nearby campuses, a roommate was all I was looking for. Preferably a socially inept nerd. Someone to pay half the rent and cause no trouble.

The day after putting up the ads, the first email inquiry arrived from someone called Lea. I sent back a brief reply telling her to stop by after three. If she didn't mind sharing apartment with a guy, I had nothing against her.

Five after three the bell rang but when I opened the door I found a skinny guy standing at the threshold. The first thing that struck me about him was how his short, blond hair stuck out in every direction--as if it was trying to escape his scalp.
