The neighbours arrive to welcome the housemates to the Arts Quarter. Genji Fujita and Salim Benali live in the other apartments on their floor, while Khaled Assaoui lives in Hakim House on the other side of the district. Khaled brings along a fruitcake as a welcome gift.
The Romance Festival happens right outside Penny’s apartment, so she pops down to try some of the sakura tea. In a flirty mood afterwards, Penny calls Khaled Assaoui, who invites her over to his bachelor pad in the Arts Quarter. It has an amazing view of Uptown.
While visiting venues in Windenburg, Penny pops into the library where she spots the handsome librarian, Khaled Assaoui. Penny can tell he works out, and he seems to be checking her out too. After some more flirting, they exchange numbers.
