What! Pierre held from cursing himself blue in the face.
His bicycle was bent out of shape by the colourful clunker belonging to his new neighbour.
It was time to have a word with her.
He was intrigued more than he admitted. For reasons unidentified, her humming as she carried pots and bouquets of flowers back and forth got under his skin.
Endless aroma of baked goods which wafted constantly through her open french windows did not help matters.
In the evenings, her tinkering with pots and pans and sound of music floated up to his apartment. He deliberately left his window open to hear her, telling himself that it was for the fresh air.
She opened her door at the very first rap.
Her sunny smile showed perfectly capped teeth, unruly red locks tumbled over freckled shoulders and shiny hazel eyes that crinkled with mischief gazed up at him.
As he calibrated his thoughts to reprimand mode…
“Would you like some freshly baked brownies and coffee?” Offered her fruity voice.
An argument, he has just lost.
