I spilled coffee. “Found what?”

“Check it out. Only $15 a month. Holy cheesecakes! I’ll be able to buy gas for my car!” She bounced like a ping-pong ball on sugar.

“$15 a month? That’s a typo. No way, Nadine.”

“I’m calling!” Her excitement contagious, my hopes were ticking upwards. “Hi, yeah. My boyfriend and I need an apartment. … Really? Is it still available? … Yay!”

She hung up. “Score!”

We raced over. There was only one catch: some abseiling was required.
