Why him?

You live in a small apartment building by yourself but your boyfriend is always over. The old lady next door moves out one night and a boy moves in. You become very good friends as you get to know each other but things start to go wrong.


1. The Anniversary

"I'm just coming up the stairs now. I'll see you in a minute." I say to my boyfriend Carter as I hand up. I've been with Carter for a year now and it's our anniversary tonight. I live on the 6th floor of a small apartment building in Chicago. The elevator has been broken for as long as i've lived here and it was a big pain when I moved in, but recently it's a bit squishy using the stairs because the old lady that lived next to me moved to an Retirement Village so there are a lot of people wrapping up her furniture and taking it down to the Movers truck. She is a mean old women, lucky she's moving tonight.

I make my way up the stairs and open the door. I hang my jacket up on the coat rack and put my keys on the table near the door. "Hey Babe, How was your day?" Carter asked as he runs up to me. "Good tha-" I try to reply but he cuts me off. He grabs me face gently and wraps a bandana around my eyes. "What are you doing?" I say surprised. "I'm made dinner for us. Can you see?" "Ah no." I say with a little giggle.

He grabs my hand and leads me towards the dinning table. He sits me down and takes the blind fold off. "I've been slaving away over a hot stove all day so i hope enjoy." He says with a little cheekiness and I just look at him with a massive grin. He places a plate of down in front of me. "It looks amazing." "I thought so as well." cocking his head up pouring me a drink. 

We start eating and talking and laughing and we were having a great time and we had nearly finished but then we heard a big bang out side of the door. "What was that." "I have no idea." I say as I get up and walk to the door. Carter follows me, I open the door and there is a boy standing there with a tonne of suit cases and boxes. He has short brown hair, blue eyes and the nicest smile.

"Oh, sorry. I hope i didn't disturb you." He says as he walks over to Carter and I. "No, no it's all right." "Um I'm Xavier." He holds his hand out ready for us to shake it. "I'm Valerie and this is Carter." I say as Carter and I shake his hand. We stand there a bit awkwardly for a few seconds looking at each other. "Nice to meet you guys but i think i better start to unpack." Xavier says as he starts walking back to his apartment. "Nice to meet you too." Carter opens the door for me and we go back to eating dinner.
