Excerpt - Adam POV
The only bad part of taking a job so quickly was that I didn’t have time to look for a place to live. One of the school board members knew a woman who had an apartment available, and the price was great. So I took it - sight unseen. Now that I was here, I understood why the rent was so cheap. I could stand in the kitchen and almost touch my bed. There was just enough space in the bathroom to turn around, and I had to duck down in the shower to wash my hair.
The landlady, Eleanor, was a nice, older woman who lived in the big house out front. She was here to greet me when I arrived on Saturday and kindly recommended a storage place for the furniture that wouldn’t fit in the studio apartment, which was almost everything. She had mentioned that her granddaughter lived with her, and I was assuming she would have been young - middle school or maybe high school age - since Eleanor herself didn’t seem to be too old.
But the woman I saw taking out the trash late last night was no teenager. And if she was, Lord help me, I shouldn’t be allowed to work with children after the thoughts I had. No, she was definitely older, maybe early twenties. I had just turned off my light to attempt to go to sleep when I heard rattling around outside. Going to the window I saw a scantily clad young woman wrestling two large trash cans down the driveway. It wasn’t until she reached the curb and the streetlight illuminated her that I saw her hair was a vibrant shade of red and her skin was smooth. I couldn’t make out her features, but her body...good God. Yeah, she was definitely not a teenager.
She must have had some sort of disagreement with the second trash can, because after she got it in place, she kicked it. That had made me laugh, and I almost didn’t close the curtain before she turned around. Spying on her from the window was not the first impression I wanted to make.
