John practically jumped out of
his skin when the knock at his door echoed through his flat. It was a Friday
night and he was already a drink in and had a pizza in the oven and was most
decidedly not expecting company.
He pulled on the blue jumper
he’d left on the back of the couch and ambled over to the door, hoping that he
wasn’t going through the effort of getting off of his sofa for a salesman. He
swung the door open without the pretense of peering through the busted peephole
and promptly froze as he caught sight of who was on the other side.
Definitely not a salesman.
Instead it was his neighbor from
across the hall, the one who he’d been crushing on since she moved in six
months ago despite the fact that he rather thought he was well past the age of
having crushes. The blonde from 4D was apparently his exception.
“Umm, hi,” she said,
biting her bottom lip as she took him in.
