Reality was that I had taken a flat, moved in, paid rent for a bedroom, bathroom, and shared space.
The next month I didn’t have any shared space, so I cut my rent by 1/3rd.
The landlady had to accept it, and that is how I went month to month.
Jade had no money, never did. She kept babbling about who she knew and where she went, and probably had convinced the landlady of her wealth.
I don’t know the full back story; I do know Jade and the landlady knew each other previously.
I continued to live at the place, spend my time out and with friends, or, if home, doing work on the computer.
That was the great thing about the job, a lot of work could be done on computer at home.
Unfortunately, being home meant I was in the Jade environment, so could hear her calling to her cats, banging things around, looking for attention.
