The leasing rep was cheerful despite the protests she made about the temperature outside, which dropped 20 degrees in the course of a day. She unlocked the door to the one bedroom model and motioned me inside, where I was greeted with a mirror image of my ex's apartment over 5 years ago. Her butterfly necklace glittered amidst the ice. Nevertheless, I concentrated on the details: Will there be a door behind my bed into the next apartment? When was the date of the last renovation? Am I safe here? I didn't expect her to fully answer the last question.
