I looked out the window; down near one of the grassy areas that sat on the banks on the river. There I saw him again the tall man with the snapback cap and long jacket. I watched as he stared at the rolling water that shimmered romantically in the moon light. I yearned to meet this stranger; he fascinated me by doing nothing. I threw off my pajamas and changed back into my clothes. I donned my favorite jacket and snagged my keys before slipping out of the apartment as quietly as I could.
The wind blew fast pace teeter tottering me as I got closer to the mystery man. “Jeogiyo! Jeogiyoo~!” I yelled to him, but he seemed to be ignoring me. I felt the light sprinkle of water touch my skin as I got closer to him. My stomach began to turn once I was standing right behind him. “Uh, jeogiyo?” I question reaching out to tap him.

Just gotta get the stuff out of the truck.” He said speeding right out the door. “I’ma go and check my ask.fm and Instagram.” Alicia said going into her room with her phone. I let out a disappointed huff and slumped down on the couch.
After what felt like forever, the cable guy reappeared. “There’s a slight problem.” He said clapping his hands together. “And that would be?” I asked without making eye contact. “I locked the keys in the truck and can’t get to the items needed.” He said I sighed and shook my head. “That’s fine. Did you call anyone?” He shook his head as I looked at him. “My phone is also in the car.” I wanted to cry, but I held it in. “I’ll call the company and a towing company.” I said walking into Alicia’s room.
