The House Next Door

September 4th, 2008 (03:35 pm)

current mood: busy

Now for some neighborhood gossip.

The House Next Door has been vacant for some time, ever since the last renters moved away. It needed some repair work, so I wasn't surprised when the owners decided to fix it up before either finding more renters or putting it on the market. This summer I started seeing an older gentleman around the house a lot. I spoke to him once and learned that he's the property manager, hired by the owners to make the needed repairs. He comes by often, emerges from his truck carrying tools or paint, disappears into the little house, and exits a few hours later. Then I started seeing him at the house with a woman, quite a bit younger, whom I didn't recognize. I assumed she'd been hired to help with some of the work.

Not so, according to the neighbors on the other side of the little house. They have ascertained that the woman is not a subcontractor, unless that's what they're calling it these days. She's his mistress. The house next door has become their Secret Love Nest.
Well, apparently it's not so secret anymore. Though maybe it still is a secret to the homeowners. And, I presume, to the caretaker's wife.
