A/N: Thank you to all those who followed me and read my first fic! I’m thinking of doing a part two to this one, so if you like it, let me know!
Your fire escape had always been your favourite part of your apartment. Situated outside your bedroom window, you had spent countless hours of your life lounging on the metal steps, reading a book or catching up on some homework. Last summer, you had wound a string of fairy lights around the rails, which were coated in shiny dark paint. Your landlady had protested at first but, after you proved that they weren’t endangering the use of the fire escape in any way, she had let you keep them. The small victory had brought a smile to your face, and now your escape was even cozier than before, and was still just as cozy a year later. This year’s summer brought scorching heat and clear nights, and you spent most of your free time out on your escape, trying to catch a breeze.
You sat on your fire escape now, wearing a lightweight hoodie and pajama shorts, doodling in a journal. School was out for the week and tomorrow didn’t require a six am wake up call, leaving you free to stay up late and admire the Queens skyline at night. It was nights like these that you loved the most; nights that seemed like they were pulled straight from a movie scene, with stars that glimmered like flames, a full moon bigger than you had ever seen before, and the sounds of the city mixing in with the quiet melodies that drifted out of the speakers propped up on your window sill. You would be content for the rest of your life if you could keep moments like these forever.
