The Man Next Door

 Q:   Ask a Question about The Man Next Door       
The Man Next Door by Cristina Nuta -

It was late at night on a cold January night two years ago when I first laid eyes on Anthony Brown, after hearing a removal van in front of the vacant house next door. Curious to see who my new neighbour was going to be, I peered out from between the curtains. Under the street lamp there appeared to be a multi-coloured clown-like figure gesticulating widely and shouting, 'Be careful with that box! That's a ten-thousand-pound amp you've got there!'

When Anthony came round to introduce himself the following day, I was rather taken aback to discover that his curious guise the previous night had not been a trick of the light, but that it was, in fact his 'normal' appearance. His slender body was adorned in a comic book, super hero catsuit, cape and mask and his rainbow hair looked as if it had been styled with the aid of an electric socket and a wet finger. He introduced himself with a low bow then took my hand and gently kissed it before murmuring in a deep, husky voice, 'Anthony Brown, at your service, Madam'.

In the months that followed, I soon realized that Anthony was one of the politest, friendliest and most genuinely caring people I've ever met-although he has a strange way of showing this. For instance, on my birthday, he rang my doorbell, greeted me with a bow when I opened the door, said, 'This is for you', and handed me a photograph of a bouquet of flowers. He brings me chicken soup and Japanese tea when I'm ill, and I know he's always ready to listen to my problems and cheer me up. Once, when I was feeling a bit low, he said, 'I know! Let's go to the zoo- there's nothing like a nice elephant to make you feel better!'

Although Anthony could never be described as ordinary, I enjoy having him as a neighbour. Just the other day he came round unexpectedly with an entire Thai meal beautifully laid out on a tray. When I thanked him, he merely shrugged and said, 'What else are neighbours for?' It's this sort of thing that makes him such a valuable and unpredictable friend.
