A CEO moves next door to a 3rd year college student who babysits and tutors for a rich family to keep the rent paid in her expensive apartment. It seems strange for a CEO, who probably has a ton of money, to move next door, in somewhat of the same living conditions as her. How would I make this work? My idea of how I'd make this work:
The CEO has a nephew (which is an unchanging factor of the story, he's going to exist regardless), and nephew is a bit of a delinquent. Nephew hates CEO uncle's job and doesn't like living in his fancy penthouses, so CEO uncle decides to compromise for his nephew by moving into a lesser environment, which would also allow him to stay in the same school district. Now, it's not a poor apartment building with graffiti and broken down air conditioning, but it's actually quite expensive. CEO is also quite a humble and down-to-earth man and doesn't mind living comfortably and in something that isn't obnoxious in luxury.
The difference is that OC (college student) is struggling to pay her expensive rent, while it is like nothing to Mr. CEO. The two of them encounter at the beginning of the story, and OC meets Mr. Ceo as his normal. He doesn't automatically tell her that he's a CEO, so all she knows is that he's a handsome man with a rude nephew living next door.
The OC doesn't find out he's a CEO until she does an internship under his company and becomes his personal assistant. I'll be "showing, not telling" that he is a CEO and also trying my best not to make this seem like an overly fictional story. I want it to be realistic.
So officially, the question is: does this seem realistic enough, for a CEO to be living next door to a college student?
