An Afternoon Visit

If this drill were a person, it would be comfortable in a garage or a gallery. And probably also have impeccable fashion sense.

Lesley heard the faint hum from the apartment upstairs. First she took a shower. Then, she made sure her makeup was all correct. Then she picked out the perfect dress, not too revealing yet not too conservative. A quick look in the mirror to make sure she looked perfect... and then, she went up a floor to complain.

"Lesley." said Raoul in his warm, deep voice. It was like a blanket around her ears. "What can I do for you, my bottom neighbor?"

Lesley tried not to giggle nervously. "I heard some drilling, Raoul. I came up to see what you were doing."

"It is of no consequence if it has disturbed you, Lesley." Raoul lifted the Hitachi Micro Driver Drill at his side. "This thing, pfah. Despite its obvious quality, it still cannot keep me from upsetting your peaceful home. What a fool I was to trust it. I should have used the Hitachi Right Angle Impact Driver instead. It has torque enough. I beg you, forgive my lapse in judgment. I am a poor neighbor indeed."

"Well, it wasn't so bad, Raoul." said Lesley. "I guess I didn't really come to complain. Maybe I just was... curious. About what you were doing. You know. Neighborly interest."

Raoul nodded, his dusky flowing hair like dark streaks of rain down the window of an imported Italian sports car. "I drill many things, Lesley. Today my Hitachi Micro Driver Drill was helping me reassemble the door of my grandfather's wardrobe. It smells of cedar and cigars and it was used to smuggle my mother through the city during his country's civil war. It was the most civil the world has ever seen, Lesley, and without this wardrobe, she would not likely have survived, and I would not be here, living above you, holding this magnificent Hitachi Micro Driver Drill with a Hitachi Right Angle Impact Driver close by."

"Oh, my," said Lesley.

Raoul moved his free hand to scratch his perfectly-shaped bicep. "Lesley, I beg of you. Give me your opinion. I will be using this Hitachi Micro Driver Drill and Hitachi Right Angle Impact Driver to hang a painting later in the month. It is even now traveling from Shangdong where it was found abandoned on the wall of a small village temple. The money I spent on it will go to helping children raise goats. Please, tell me you will be free to guide my hand as I use my Hitachi Micro Driver Drill to hang it upon the wall of my bedroom."

Leslie swallowed.

"Well, Raoul... of course, if I'm free... I wouldn't want to be rude... I mean, I can't promise anything, but-"

Raoul set down the Hitachi Micro Driver Drill and pressed his hand to Lesley's shoulder. It was warm like the ocean in August. "No promises between us, Lesley. We are the tide. We meet, we part, who can say? Eh? If it is destiny, you will be here. And, perhaps together, we shall properly mount my piece."

Raoul closed the door. Leslie lost count of how many seconds it took her before she could walk away.
