Believe Ye Your Eyes.
This short story is about a man that faced death and escaped with his life when a bullet missed him. Sei is a pretty boy that women flock to everywhere he goes and he broke the heart of one woman and she tried to kill him because he rejected her love but she spared his life so he can one day experience what he put her through. After that incident Sei couldn’t see women…literally women were invisible until he noticed his next door neighbor Lynn and he became infatuated with her yet she never noticed him. After a incident in her apartment Sei comes to Lynn’s rescue that’s when she really noticed him and he confessed his feelings and she rejected him and that’s when he understood the pain he put women through. Lynn feels sorry for him after seeing him in that state she offers him a cup of coffee that starts off their relationship of finally being noticed by each other.
The one thing I found weird was how he got into her house all the time….like is she that careless that she leaves her front door unlocked? That question is never answered it just happens like that.
