Jeni Bishop was disturbingly familiar with the sounds her neighbor made
during sex. To be clear, it wasn’t intentional on her part to be within earshot
of the woman’s early morning amorous exploits.
Not at first anyway. But by this point, it was a matter of principle.
Jeni sat on her front porch, hands wrapped around a mug of steaming
coffee, the wooden swing swaying lightly in the subtle breeze. Growing up
on a farm, her day had begun before dawn for as long as she could remember,
and the habit of rising early refused to be purged from her system.
That had been rough during college, but now that nights of staying out
until two or three in the morning were few and far between, these quiet hours
were her favorite part of the day. Or they had been, before she moved to
Kansas City for a job opportunity exactly one month ago. If she’d known
who she was moving in next to, she might have reconsidered this particular
location. Or asked her landlord to waive the security deposit, at the very least.
Now, four weeks in, Jeni had come to expect her morning solitude to be
interrupted at least twice a week. Last week it had been four.
Same guy, but still. Four.
Jeni didn’t mind that the lady was getting laid or even how often. It was
the fact that she refused to keep it private, in a neighborhood where the
houses were stacked nearly on top of each other. Also, because she seemed to
require an open window to reach her big finale.
Didn’t most people get busy at night? Well, maybe she did that too, but it
was evident she appreciated a certain kind of wake-up call.
Jeni nodded along with the words of affirmation the woman was so
Yes, don’t stop. Just get it over with, already. Jeni took a sip of coffee.
A low, rhythmic thumping joined the feminine moans. A headboard,
Jeni sighed and wondered why the idea of sleeping with the window
closed was such a distasteful notion to her beautiful, energetic, and probably
limber next-door neighbor. If the double-paned glass was firmly latched, the
entire neighborhood wouldn’t get an earful. As the closest neighbor, Jeni
might still hear something, but it would hopefully be muffled to the point she
might have assumed it to be a cat or a dying squirrel.
A woodpecker, maybe.
Jeni circled a hand in the air in front of her, as if to say keep going.
Jeni very nearly set her cup down to clap but decided against it. All was
silent now, just as she liked it.
Inhaling deeply, she closed her eyes and took in the fresh air. The late
August morning was warm, but it wasn’t uncomfortably hot yet. Just as in her
hometown in Nebraska, she wouldn’t be able to enjoy these mornings come
winter, which was one reason she stubbornly refused to give up the ritual
now, no matter how irritating her neighbor had become.
