In this fantasy romance story, Todd falls for the beautiful girl who moves into the apartment next to him. She's definitely quirky, with a penchant for wearing blue eyeliner and a strange fondness for a little bonsai tree she keeps in her apartment. Todd yearns to speak to her, to ask her out, and to find out the reason for all her quirks.
He even writes a poem about her:

Beautiful maiden next door,
You are the one I truly adore.
Russet hair and luscious skin;
Your heart do I desire to win.
Pouty lips and eyes of green;
Loveliest girl I've ever seen.

About the Author

Lotus Rose is also the author of MachoPoni: A Prance with Death. He writes about young characters in strange situations. At times dark, silly, or bawdy, his writing owes much to such influences as Alice in Wonderland and Roald Dahl, and explores themes like disillusionment, and the corruption of innocence. If his books were movies, they'd likely be directed by Tim Burton. He often writes in a style that is a more edgy, "grown-up" version of children's literature interspersed with his poetry and songs.

Here's a short poem he wrote:

O, shall I be like the lotus,
And bring you dark dreams and soft sighs?
Or shall I be like the rose is,
Sweet-scented and tempting your eyes?

For the unending sleep can seduce you,
To the world behind unseeing eyes.
And the beauty that beckons, then cuts you,
Is also the cruelest of lies.
