Derek loves his apartment. It’s big, spacious, and it makes him feel free. It’s conveniently located near a twenty-four hour grocery store, and near enough to most of his friends that he can see them whenever he likes. It’s in Oakland city, a couple of days drive from Beacon Hills.
He’s a very successful architect, so technically he could have a house if he wanted, but he likes the apartment. Likes the space it gives him.
There’s only one small problem - and it probably wouldn’t even irritate him if he was a sociable person - his neighbour. He’s never met 403 in person but he knows he wouldn’t like him. The guy makes so much damn noise, and he only knows it’s a man from the amount of deep voiced swearing he hears whenever something is dropped.
But neighbours aside, it’s a great apartment. He loves living alone.
