Rent is $3k for a 2 bedroom.
Andrew Hardin. He goes by Drew. Lives in the building with Korie. #1113. Lives with a roommate— that’s how he can afford to live there. Works as an assistant to a VP at a media firm.
Korie Cole: Baker, recently single, well off. Quirky, smart, opinionated. Best friend is Teigen. Owns successful business: Korie Cole’s Catering.
Drew lives across the hall from Korie. He has seen her before, but knew she was dating someone. So he kept his distance. He noticed the best friend would be there sometimes when Korie was not. He had spoken to Korie before in passing. Kind of put two and two together about what occurred. He had tried to catch her since then. Awkwardly missing her every so often. Until he sees her enter the elevator in the lobby on day after work. He notices she swiping on the aforementioned dating app. He decides to join himself— using a few things from their conversation to figure out some of her likes. And they match.
Drew had sent the text and gone to sleep. He continues texting when he is in another side of town, making it seem like that’s his location. He starts checking in more. They chat about some of the personal things from ch 3. At the same time sending messages to Korie. IRL they bump into each other again, but korie isn’t as friendly and it’s not that good, a teeny antagonistic, cos she kind of like Andrew. In the meantime, he is not being as responsive to Alycia. Who decides to show up at Drew’a house. They have an altercation that korie witnesses. Makes her dislike him.
Drew shows up at the bakery— as Drew. She doesn’t draw the connection. And he panics and just invites her to grab a bite to eat with him. They interact a bit, shes obviously attracted to him, but not sure what to make of him. He admits hes liked her awhile. She asks why he never approached her before. “Because— i mean, you’re you.” And he didn’t think she would fuck with someone like him. She is very thoughtful, looking out a the water, and him. Thinking a lot. She acknowledges that she probably had been a little distracted, but shes glad that he came into the bakery today. Drew is aching to touch her and feels like she feels the same way, but doesnt want to be disrespectful. They get up and head back home. On the walk home, at the corner (?) she reaches to grab his hand and pulls it around her shoulders. She thanks him again for making her day better. He pulls her close, confidently kissing her forehead. In the elevator they still remain close. The keep making eye contact, feeling weird that they are no longer touching. The walk down the corridor, kind of like they had before. Him trailing behind her, but a smile back. When they come to the corridor of her apt door. Awkwardness not anticipated. “So.” “So.” “I usually get to do this part downstairs.” “It was really nice hanging out with you.” “Best friday night ever… didn’t even have to uber home.” I want a hand grab, finger lace. And I want him to pull her close to him to say goodnight. another forehead kiss. chin touch, tilt up. soft kiss that turns smouldering. clothes pulling, hands under his shirt, touching his skin. he sites at some point how he is pent up from talking to her the night. he ends things abruptly, but sweetly. another small kiss, and he lefts her go, moving back across the hall way. He waves goodnigght and they part ways. Back in his apartment he thinks for a second. Trying to shake it off. But then goes back to the door. About to open it, and when he does, shes outside. Sex happens— possibly just oral and heavy petting. She leaves and bumps into Kyle and the girl, who offhandedly mentions that she’s happy they finally met up. Exposing his secret.
Let’s elaborate on the sex.
He pins her arms to the bed, and kisses down her body. The image of the icing in his mind as he tastes her everywhere. they are a little frantic, but passionate. she pulls at his hair as he bites on her hip, pulling down her sweats. he moves to help her take off her shirt and she naked under him. he bends down again and grabs her behind the neck and pulls her in for another appreciative kiss. shes aching for him to touch her but shes also into the kiss. his hands cover her tits as he kisses back down her body. diving back in and kissing her inner thighs. shes soft and sweet and tasting her is an experience he is can’t get enough of and she comes quickly. she wants to kiss him again, and taste herself. he sidles up beside her, kissing her mouth, neck and face and softly rubbing her inner thighs, testing if shes ready. but she grabs him. he’s rough and pushes her on her side. she warns him to go slow, and the implication makes him short circuit a bit. he kisses her neck as he slides in, stretching her, her nails digging into his hips. he fucks her slowly, his hands all over her body. kissing her shoulders as he strokes her. he moves on top of her, more deep kissing and stroking until she comes, and he finally lets himself go too.
