Today’s snippet is again from my new story, which follows Piper and Jon.
A smile spread across Jon’s as he read his neighbour’s note. Neighbour-relationship? He chuckled. Despite the seriousness behind it all, he actually enjoyed their game of writing / receiving messages. Hopefully, it was also distracting her from her worries. Only a few minutes ago he’d opened the door to the hallway, but hadn’t heard anything, but the TV. Was he reading too much into her words? Did she think he’d complaint about the noise that made her apologise it wouldn’t happen again? Clearly, his remark that it’d broken his heart was enough indication that he was trying to lighten up the mood. Good grief, he was overthinking what was supposed to have been a little lift-me-up for his neighbour.
Should he continue?
Before he could change his mind, he wrote on a little note: Considering that we’re in a Neighbour-relationship, may I ask for your name?
Thanks for all your comments,
I do appreciate each single one of them!
