It has dreamy windows. It has a dreamy sunroom. Kris dreams about being an old cat lady. She dreams about all sorts of things, actually, whether she has control over it or not.

Paul lives in Apartment 2, as he has for the last ten years. He’s been working at the same tech company since he almost-graduated college. In fact, not much about him has changed since he moved here, including his relationship status. Paul has as much of a love-hate relationship with women as he has with himself. But he’d like to change all that before his twenties are over, and he may have just found a way to do it…

Berto loves his Peruvian heritage, even though it’s the one difference that causes strife between him and his wife-to-be…
