"La vecina" is the perfect addition to your FVR library! This story is mostly told in the present tense (with a few references to the past). Read the synopsis below!
We’ve all had nosy neighbors, but none like Heidi. She is the neighborhood "watch", and literally watches Ernesto all day. Although she is 80 years old, she’s determined not to let age get in her way. But there’s a glaring problem. Ernesto is 50 years younger and dutifully tries to avoid her. However, Ernesto doesn’t realize that Heidi is more involved in his life than he had originally thought. When Heidi breaks into his house, during his date, well, things get real weird, real fast!
