I felt naked without a beanie. I mean, who the fuck did I think I was walking into such a place so severely underdressed. Now I know why Bjørn's moustache was twitching so incessantly - he smelled danger. I stood out like a proper country kid amongst all these neon windbreakers and slacks. These weren't people, these were walking vintage store mannequins. 

I line up behind some beanie-men to get a drink at the bar.

"How old are you?" the bartender with a beard and long beautiful pigtails asks me. 

"Old enough" I say but still hand him my ID. 

He gives it a cursory glance and flicks his hair behind his shoulders and starts to pour me a craft beer. I didn't even ask for a beer. 

"Hundred and forty kroner" 

I didn't really feel like fighting him. I have very few rules in life but one of them is to never fight men with pigtails - you never know what else these people are capable of. 

I pay up and find my way over to Bjørn. He's sitting with some other people who seem to be his friends by the that bench by the big window. I approach them but Bjørn doesn't seem to want to notice me. 

"Hei" I say in my most affected southern accent.

Some of the others nod and smile in my direction. 

"Oh, hei. Everyone this is my friend Tim. He's in Oslo for a couple of days"

They nod again. I take a seat gingerly next to a fairly handsome blond guy.

    Dude I feel like you are meandering too much. I feel like you need to condense more of your stories. Like I remember you would fit so much heart and soul into your first posts and lately you've been writing like your scared to progress the happenings forward.

      @abrahamKim yeah, I get you. I'm a bit torn. I have a few more things I want to set up before I leave Oslo and Norway for real but yeah, I agree that it has to move faster and with more purpose. On a different note, the stylistic change from the prologue was intentional.
