What's Your Next-Door Neighbor Story?

Went Erasmus. Falled in love. Back home now.

Living in a students residence. Got the room right next to his. Falled in love immediately. Heard you having sex in the room above mine. Still with the crush. Finally broke up with her. You started to say how much I smelled well, I much I looked good with glasses. Even went to your house and slept there. I knew it was my chance, but I was too afraid to take it. You gave up and found an easier girl, I told you my feelings. You got laid with her, dumped her, and waited for me to go after you. Sorry buddy, too late for that. My love was big, my proud bigger. Back to my home country now, seeing you online, seeing your pictures, wondering if you still remember me. Never regreted anything though...

About Next-Door Neighbor

No matter how close or how far, we all live next to someone, and we all have a Next-Door Neighbor story. With that in mind, editor Dean Haspiel asked some of his favorite storytellers and cartoonists to create their favorite NDN stories so we could share them with you.
