Elaine was thinking about what she should do when a man in another car got out.
He was wearing a business suit that looked simple and clean, brown slacks, and had a briefcase in hand. He looked amazing
She had never seen a man look so good with such short hair, but it looked perfect on him.
She rolled down her window. “Sir.”
Hector paused, “Are you talking to me?”
Elaine smiled and opened the door. “I‘m sorry, I can‘t get my car in. Can you help me, please?”
Hector looked at her car, which was blocked. He could tell she was too close and didn‘t notice the distance, which was why she was stuck
He nodded. “I‘ll give it a go.”
Elaine moved over. “Thanks so much.”
He got into the car, adjusted the seat, slowly reversed the car, and adjusted the steering wheel. In less than 10 minutes, he managed to park the car.
He took out the keys and handed them to her. “Done.”
Elaine took the keys and smiled. “Thank you so much.”
Hector smiled. “Don‘t worry about it.”
Elaine was surprised when he walked into the building, so she caught up. “Do you live here too?”
“Yes, I just moved in recently.”
Oh! They entered the elevator, and Elaine paused when she saw the floor he was going to.
Hector looked at her. “Which floor are you on?”
She smiled. “The same as you.”
Hector didn‘t say anything after that.
When they got to the 12th floor, they walked out together, and Elaine slowed her steps until she saw he was going to the unit next to hers.
Hector took out his keys and unlocked his door when he heard Elain‘s voice. “What a coincidence, You‘re my new neighbor!”
Hector paused, turned to look at her, and chuckled. “That really is a coincidence.” “By the way, thanks for helping me park the car. Let me c**k you dinner.”
Hector hesitated. “I don‘t think that‘s a good idea.”
Elaine understood. They were strangers, and it wouldn‘t be too nice, so she explained, “I live with my sister.”
Hector paused. “Let‘s play by ear.”
In the evening, Lucy bought some groceries home when she returned from work because Elaine had asked her to.
When she got into their apartment, she saw Elaine tidying up the living room and frowned, “What‘s happening? You asked me to get groceries and tidied up the living room. Are we expecting guests?)
“Of course, why else would I ask you to get groceries?” Elaine cleaned up the living room and sat on the couch, “That‘s so tiring. Let‘s hire a cleaner.”
Lucy placed the groceries on the table and tossed her bag onto the couch. “Are you going to help me pay for that?”
Elaine placed the bag neatly. “Don‘t mess it up. We have a hot guy living next door who‘s about your age. He looks great, and I‘m guessing that he‘s single.
“He helped me park my car, and I invited him for dinner. We can‘t show him a messy place as a first impression, can we?”
Lucy ignored her, took the groceries into the kitchen, and started unpacking.
Elaine went close to her. “I‘m helping you. You better act properly“.
“Helping me?” Lucy looked at her. She looked serious. “To find a match.”
Lucy was rendered speechless as she pushed her out: “Go away. You should look
for one yourself.” Elaine leaned against the fridge. “I‘m a career woman. Dating isn‘t something on my mind at this age.”
