Window to the world (Humor)

(This story first appeared ‘Guilty Pleasures’ anthology 2019, published by ‘Things in the well.’)

Businessman Tim fell in love with the ridiculously cheap high-rise apartment at first sight. His lawyer warned that the price reflected some mistake regarding the darkened windows.

Tim wasn’t interested in views, so he didn’t care. Those windows provided safety; after work he’d shed the suit, along with his inhibitions. Dancing naked through chores, strutting his privacy, flexing those abs, Tim reveled in being the man he was afraid to show the world.

Happy and free, until a photo on social media went viral. Those treacherous windows, installed back-to-front, had flashed his truth to the world.

For sale, apartment, cheap.
