Hey Khamanna

Congrats on entering. My thoughts poured on here with no logical order lol:

I think they should be a family. Thatís the vibe Iím getting. And they should live together in a house to avoid the Old Guy moving back and forth. Lol.

Unfortunately, like the others, I expected something, donít know though.

Interested in hearing your thoughts and how you came up with this. Always interested lol.

Thanks to all for reading.

I know for me to read this would be a tall order. I don't like slow stories about nothing.
I have a neighbor who drives me crazy. He's aged and I did ask him if he needs anything from the store once. I don't go to stores that often for obvious reasons - we're in New York. He seemingly didn't understand why I did that. So after that he started ringing my door like four times a day (i'm not even exagerating here) saying he has to go to a store to get things and if I need anything. Obviously he's out all the time.
Then he did forward me an article that's against the lockdown. He's forcing his political views on me. And so forth.

So I decided to write about these two neighbors who have different views. And one is obviously very annoying. She's for a lockdown and she started drinking a lot. The headache is from all the drinking.
And he got covid.  
Obviously she still looks out for him asking him if he needs anything all the time. And he doesn't want that as he doesn't want her to get sick. So he shows his human side.
So the point was to show that the human in both wins over. He's annoying - she still cares. And he's crazy but doesn't want her to go close to his door since he doesn't want her to get sick.
So, it didn't translate to the paper properly.
I could't spend much time on it. I wrote it. Submitted. Then reread, made amends and resubmitted.

You all were too kind in your comments.

I did want most of the action to happen in that tight space between their doors. I wanted the interaction between two neighbors. That was the main thought behind the whole thing.

Thank you for reading! It didn't come out the way I wanted. I knew that when submitted but I still submitted to be in)
