Indeed, neighbourhood is convenient and as I learned later this is what our neighbours thought as well. They were afraid that I would foist my “friendship” on their daughter, e.g, over the balcony ;-) Same age, same school, parallel classes. Later our classes were merged together and we appeared in the same class.
It never “clicked” between us. But once on the way home I was walking behind her and looking at her slender legs in sheer white with very thin black (dark grey?) horizontal stripes pantyhose and was thinking:”And why did we miss such a brilliant opportunity…?”
Yeah, I was always a fetishist ;)
