Summary

Some neighbors share more than others... 
Andy Madison is city born and bred. Filling in for a friend at a coffee shop, Andy meets Ben Hardin and sparks fly. They spend a long, lazy Sunday afternoon together to get to know each other, and when they decide to let nature take its course, they go to Ben's cozy apartment. 
Ben's taking his time becoming acclimated to his new life in the big city. He's got a great job he loves, he's making new friends, and his starter apartment has the most incredible views a young man could dream of. Ben's discovered there's more to admire than the arts, music and architecture. All he has to do is look out his window and across the narrow alley. 
Andy thinks he's seen it all living in the Big Apple, but what he spies through Ben's window is something that can only be enjoyed by the eye of the beholder... 
* * * * 
Andy was sorta cute. I could invite him to a movie this afternoon and see what he said. It was one sure way to find out which team he batted for. "When do you get off, Andy?" 
A smile played at his lips as he cocked his head to the left and raised his eyebrow. "Usually about midnight every night, one way or the other." 
I bet I looked stupid with my mouth hanging open. A wide grin split his face, then he laughed, a low, happy sound that said he was pleased to have rendered me speechless. Andy sobered, at least a little. 
"Are you attempting to ask me out?" 
I gripped my coffee cup for dear life as I gathered my wits. "I'm not sure now. I think you might need to go home and get some sleep." 
He leaned forward and brushed his knuckles across mine. "I don't like to sleep alone, Ben." 
The smooth, silky way he said my name made me shiver, but I'm sure he intended that I would. Heart thudding unevenly in my chest, I met his gaze. 
"Me neither, Andy, and I happen to be free around midnight." I didn't add that if we went to my place I'd make sure my curtains were safety-pinned closed. 
He leaned forward again. "Tell you what. Give me your cell phone number and I'll call you when my shift is finally over."
