There she is. Right on time.
Five o’clock. On the dot.
Folding laundry while watching TV.
It’s like she plans this every Tuesday.
Five o’clock. Not a minute late.
God, she’s breathtaking.
How did a woman that beautiful
End up living across from me?
I wish I could talk to her,
See what eye color matches that
Silky golden hair.
It feels so wrong to stare at her
Like this. But I can’t help it.
She’s so–Shit!
She’s looking back at me!
She probably thinks I’m a creep!
I’m screwed!

Five o’clock. Finally home.

I wonder if he’s home too.

He is. I see him.


I’ll just act like I don’t see him.

I’ll just keep folding towels

And watch some Dr. Phil.


I wonder if we’ll ever meet.

There is only one street

Keeping us apart.


Does he think I’m pretty?

I want him to find my door.

He’s looking.

I don’t mind it.


He thinks I don’t know.

But I can feel those brown

Eyes on me.


Oh! I can see them now.

He seems so frightened

that I noticed him.


Don’t be afraid…

Come talk to me.
