  • congrats
  • You just got kicked out of your parents’ house
  • And now you’re trying to haul 50 pounds of stuff into your new and kind of shitty apartment
  • But as a 3rd year college student with a questionable major 
  • Who has no idea what the fuck they’re doing
  • This was a pretty good start for you
  • The rent for the apartment was pretty cheap considering it was small
  • But anything you could afford with your half assed part time job at the local supermarket was good enough for you
  • You finally lugged the last of your boxes into your apartment, letting out a heavy breath
  • Instead of throwing yourself on the floor and rewarding yourself with a nap
  • You figured you should be a good new neigbor in the apartment complex
  • So you showered and freshened up, making yourself look less sleep-deprived and somewhat presentable
  • You rushed out your door and knocked on the door of the apartment to the left of yours
  • You were hopeful to make some new friends in the complex and get along with your neighbors
  • Since you’d be living here for a while
  • However, your hopes went down the drain when you heard the sound multiple cats screeching behind the door
  • And angry footsteps moving forward and swinging the door open
  • Which probably would’ve hit you in the face if you didn’t step back
  • You were faced with an elderly woman, holding a chubby cat in her arms that looked as pissed as she was
  • Still, you decided to be confident and move on, greeting her with, “hi! my name’s Y/N! i just moved–”
  • Before you could even finish your introduction she glared at you with her angry old woman eyes and cut you off
  • “new neighbor? ANOTHER kid?”
  • You were unable to even respond to her as she kept annoyedly complaning about something like “noisy kids” and “don’t know what they’re doing” and “no decency”
  • The second she finished her thoughts, she shut the door 
  • Without even greeting you, leaving you alone in the hallway
  • “nice to meet you too i guess” you mumbled
  • Okay, so not a great start
  • But hey you still had your other neighbor to greet who hopefully wasn’t an ass
  • With new high hopes, you knocked on the door a couple times, waited for a minute or two
  • But there was no response
  • You decided to knock a few more times aaaaaand still no response
  • Giving up, you figured that your neighbor was either dead, asleep, or out of the house
  • You really hoped it wasn’t the first one
  • As you were about to turn and head back to your apartment
  • A voice a couple feet down the hall called out to you
  • “hey, what’re you in front of my apartment for?” they said, sounding slightly annoyed
  • You stiffly turned around, not wanting to make yet another bad first impression
  • You were expecting another angry person to be yelling at you
  • Boy oh boy you were SO wrong
  • The second you turned around and faced the person, you swear your heart probably stopped
  • Oh my god he’s hot
  • You were faced with a tall guy, subtle dark circles underneath his eyes and a family size bag of hot cheetos in his arms like it was his firstborn son
  • But oh man did he rock that sleep deprived look 
  • He was probably around the same age as you, college student you assumed
  • You struggled to get your words out, only managing to sputter, “uhh i’m y/n! i’m your new neighbor?”
  • He raised an eyebrow, looking at you up and down and completely iGNORED YOU
  • Before unlocking his apartment door and disappearing inside without saying another word to you
  • Good job, y/n, first day in and you’ve pissed off both neighbors
  • He might’ve been cute 
  • But that didn’t mean anything if he was as much of an asshole as the elderly cat woman next door
  • You sighed and decided to wave the white flag for the day, retreating back into your apartment to rest
  • Your place wasn’t exactly super well furnished
  • So at most right now, you had a crappy mattress, some blankets, and your best friend, the coffee maker
  • But you just had to deal with it until you unpacked everything else so you crashed on your mattress
  • And scrolled through your social media until you knocked out
  • As if your first day/night in your new place couldn’t get worse
  • You heard some loud and rapid knocking at your door, waking you up from your sleep
  • It was dark inside your apartment and outside the window too
  • So you pulled out your phone to see what time it was, squinting at your bright screen in the dark
  • 3:17AM
  • Literally who the fuck was bothering you at 3am
  • You groaned and threw your blankets off the mattress and got up to head towards the incessant knocking
  • When you finally got to the door, you threw it open to see the dumbass trying to bother you
  • “i’m tired what do you wan–” you grumbled, unable to finish your sentence when you saw once again
  • Your undeniably good looking neighbor from earlier who didn’t look too sober at the moment
  • He looked pretty disheveled at the moment, but still damn
  • His brown hair looked slightly messy and he wore a plain t shirt over black jeans, and the three cute little moles on his cheek caught your attention
  • Before you could even ask if he was okay because he clearly did not look like it
  • He immediately fell against the doorframe, leaning and holding onto it as to not fall over
  • And he began rambling endlessly without even giving you a second to comprehend what he was trying to say
  • “hi i know it’s like 3am i’m so soryr but i’m just really tired and really drunk right now and i dont’ know WHERE my keys are and the old lady next door scares me with her gardening shears so please hav mercy on me and let me crash for the night plus you’re pretty and i know we just met but i think i like you so hi hey how’s it going”
  • And with that, he fell asleep against the doorframe
  • what the fuck
  • One part of you just wanted to leave him there and go back to sleep
  • But then another part of you didn’t want to be sued for abandoning a helplessly sleep deprived guy
  • So you tugged him forward so that his body fell over your shoulders and you dragged his RIDICULOUSLY HEAVY BODY into your apartment
  • jesus christ i just wanted to sleep
  • You didn’t have any couch or chair to lie him down in
  • Nor did you have the strength or patience to lug him all the way to your mattress
  • So you decided just to leave him on the floor by the kitchen and threw a blanket over him
  • You mentally pat yourself on the back for being a good citizen of the world and crawled back into bed
  • Right as you were about to fall asleep again, loud snoring began to echo through the apartment
  • You sighed in regret, contemplating if bringing him in was even a good idea
  • But you just ignored it and pulled your pillow over your ears and finally got to sleep
  • The next morning, you tiptoed into the kitchen pouring out some cereal into two bowls and making yourself a mug of black coffee
  • As you waited for the water to boil, you walked over to the sleeping body in your living room
  • You squatted down in front of him and nudged his shoulders lightly
  • He didn’t budge at all so you started nudging him harder, basically almost shaking his shoulders till he started moving
  • His eyes finally cracked open and he began stretching his arms a bit before sitting up and rubbing his eyes
  • He looked around your apartment which was stilled filled with boxes and tons of junk lying around
  • Poor guy looked so confused until he saw you sitting in front of him
  • “well this doesn’t look like my apartment”
  • “no shit it isn’t” you replied
  • “i think you’ve got things backwards, first you wake me up at 3am drunk as hell, crash in my living room, eat my cereal, and i don’t even know your name yet” you said
  • He struggled to stifle a laugh as you got up to hand him a good ol bowl of Fruit loops and a fork
  • He accepted the bowl but held up the fork with an eyebrow raised at you
  • “look i just moved in and i can’t find my spoons so you’re just gonna have to eat with a fork” you shrugged, shoving fruit loops down your throat
  • “funny because my apartment has all spoons but i can’t find my forks,” he laughed, “the name’s seongwoo, ong seongwoo, but you can just call me ong”
  • You smiled at his humorous personality– he was definitely growing on you
  • “y/n, but maybe you would’ve know that already if you didn’t oh so gracefull ignore me yesterday,” you chuckled
  • “Yeah, sorry about that, running on 2 hours of sleep and hot cheetos can make a guy moody sometimes” he responded
  • And so began your long morning of eating cereal and talking with your new neighbor, seongwoo
  • You learned that he was a year older than you and went to college about 15 minutes away from yours
  • He used to live on the on-campus dorms but got evicted by his roommates after his 2nd year for being too noisy
  • And apparently the person that used to live your apartment before you came was some middle-aged man that would steal his coupons from the mailbox
  • So he was relieved that that DEMON was finally gone
  • His other neighbor was yet another old lady who was overly obsessed with her plants and would try to cut him with her shears if he got too close
  • The two of you bonded over complaining about old cat lady and old plant lady, laughing over your encounters with them
  • After demolishing your box of fruit loops and talking all morning, you asked, “hey since i basically housed and fed you for the last 8 hours, can you like please help me unpack”
  • He happily agreed and you both spent the rest of that afternoon unpacking the boxes and uncluttering the apartment
  • While you would unload the rest of the plates and bowls into your lower cabinets
  • seongwoo would be putting away the cups and mugs onto the higher shelves that you couldn’t reach
  • Finally you had some chairs and other furniture to fill the space so that you weren’t eating on the floor or with forks all the time
  • You finished unpacking nearly all of the boxes, leaving some in the closet for another day to handle
  • After you guys finished, you exchanged numbers in case you guys needed something in the future
  • “if you need anything or need to drunk crash at my place whenever you lose your keys, just knock really loudly,” he laughed, heading out the door and back into his own apartment
  • Turned out his keys were under the mat the entire time
  • After that incident, you guys just started depending on each other for a lot of things
  • Because you guys were basically each other’s only friend in a building of angry elderly women
  • If you ever needed something from a tall shelf and couldn’t get it, you’d just knock violently on the wall for seongwoo to hear on the other side
  • If the landlord was inspecting rooms to make sure they weren’t being trashed
  • You’d help seongwoo hide all of his junk in the closet to make his apartment at least look clean
  • So that he wouldn’t get evicted from ANOTHER place
  • Whenever you’d forget to bring one of your textbooks to class, seongwoo had your spare key and was only one text away
  • Would drive all the way to your school just to drop it off so you didn’t fail chemistry
  • And of course there were nights where you’d both go out to drink together just for fun and it didn’t matter whose apartment you both crashed in
  • As long as you could at least get in to one of them
  • Yeah both of you tend to forget your keys a lot LOL
  • Studying for your midterms and having a mental breakdown?
  • No prob, seongwoo’s got you
  • He’d come over with a bag of hot cheetos, a 6-pack of dr. pepper, and popsicle he bought from some ghetto vendor down the street
  • “i heard you slamming your head against your textbook from across the wall so i thought i’d come help”
  • Whenever he was sick of his job at his college’s campus cafe and wanted to go home, you’d call his phone and act like you were his dying relative
  • So his boss would let him go home early
  • And MOVIE NIGHTS
  • Every friday you guys have a ritual where you alternate between crashing at each other’s place and watching a movie until you both fall asleep
  • To cool off from the stress of being poor, tired students
  • But sometimes you guys argue over what movies you want to watch
  • Or what you guys eat as a snack
  • “bitch you picked the movie last week now give me the remote before i feed your house keys to the neighbor’s cat”
  • BUT IN THE END YOU GUYS ALWAYS HELP EACH OTHER OUT
  • Like you could knock on his door at 2AM just to rant
  • And he would let you in and feed you stale poptarts until you calmed down
  • Or you guys will do face masks together and do some EXTREME pore cleansing while watching reality tv shows
  • The only thing you guys can’t depend on each other for though is food
  • One time you barged into seongwoo’s place and begged, “i’m out of food please help i really can’t adult today”
  • And he’d laugh at you and say, “you know the funny thing about this is that you ACTUALLY think i can cook,” as he pulls out ramen cups out of his cupboard
  • and oh boy y’all are just really cute n friendly neighbors that help each other out
