City Lounge: Berlin (Book Two, Chapter Seven: Art Exhibit)

Chapter Seven: Art Exhibit:

I don’t remember ever going to Berlinische Galerie. Standing in front of glass doors felt like a dream. I had to pinch myself in the cheeks. Suddenly, I felt underdressed.

“Fancy place,” I whispered. Sebastian put his arm around my shoulders.

“I don’t think so,” he said. I looked up at him with a weird look on my face. I took look around the museum. Everyone was either dressed in black, white, or both. We blended in, color-wise, I’ll give us that. But, the other guests looked like they had walked out of period piece from England. One lady even stopped and looked me up and down. She wrinkled her nose and walked off. Sebastian patted me on the head. More

City Lounge: Berlin (Book Two, Chapter Six: First Date)

Chapter Six: First Date:

So, this happened.

Somehow, I ended up on a date with Sebastian on Friday night. I was heading back from my lunch break when I got the text.

“Hey, what are you doing this evening?” his message read. I raised an eyebrow at the words. What is this?

“No, why?” I typed back. His response made my heart jump.

“Care to go out to an art club opening in Kreuzberg tonight?”

My cheeks turned red. Wait… Is he asking me out on date? “Like on a date?” I didn’t get a reply until I made it up to my floor. More

City Lounge: Berlin (Book Two, Chapter Five: Girls’ Night In)

Chapter Five: Girls’ Night In:

Sebastian had to work tonight. I felt a little sad when I got the text. I stared at my phone as I sighed. Stephanie grabbed me by the shoulders.

“What’cha doing?” she asked. My friend saw Sebastian’s text. “Oh.”  Stephanie took my phone out of my hand.

“Hey!” I shouted.

“”Forget about him right now,” she said. “This is our night.” My dear friend threw my friend across the room. I looked up at her. Stephanie broke into a big grin.

“Now with that out of the way,” she said. “What shall we do first?” I stared blankly. More

City Lounge: Berlin (Book Two, Chapter Four: Girls at Lunch)

Chapter Four: Girls at Lunch:

Stephanie invited me out to lunch today.

“Please?” she asked.

“I won’t have a long time with you,” I pointed.

“That’s fine with me,” Stephanie insisted. “I only get to see you on the weekends anyway. Where do you want to meet up?” She’s got that weird why of persuading me. I pressed my lips together as I tried to think. Uh… Um…

“Would you like to go to the deli?” I asked. “It’s fifteen minutes from where I work.”

“That will work,” she said.

“Good, I’ll send you the directions.” I got onto Google maps and sent it off to her via text. “Did you get them?”

“Yeah,” Stephanie said. More

City Lounge: Berlin (Book Two, Chapter Three: Work Day in Berlin)

Chapter Three: Work Day in Berlin:

I have life outside of my friends, you know.

I have my job at Wings International. As you can guess, I work at the Berlin branch. Thursday was just another work day for me. When I got up, Sebastian was already gone. My heart sank at little when I found the living room empty. At least he left me a text before he went home. Why was I feeling that  way? We’re not even dating.

I shook those thoughts from my head. I have a work day to get through. Once I was ready, I headed out the door. More

City Lounge: Berlin (Book Two, Chapter Two: Sebastian)

Chapter Two: Sebastian:

Who is this guy?

This evening, he just came by my apartment unannounced. I had just finished dinner and was about to clean up the kitchen when my doorbell rang. At first, I found myself rather confused. It was Wednesday and my neighbors didn’t talk to me that much to stop by.

“Who is it?” I asked.

“It’s only me,” a muzzled response came out through the speaker in German. My dishrag fell onto the floor.

No way… That can’t be… I ran to the front door. When I peeked outside, there he was. My jaw dropped. More

City Lounge: Berlin (Book Two, Chapter One: Strange Guests)

City Lounge: Berlin (Book Two)

Chapter One: Strange Guests:

-Emily-

Ever since my day off, my friends won’t leave. Every weekend, Stephanie and Sebastian come over to my apartment and just hang around. They tend to forget how to go home. Another thing I can’t understand is how Sebastian found my place.

“I gave him your address,” Stephanie told me three weeks ago. She sounded so nonchalant about it too. I about died screaming.

“You did what? !” I cried.  Stephanine gave me a puzzled look.

“I thought you would be thrilled, ” she said.

“Yeah,  but you don’t have permission to give out other people’s addresses! ” I complained. More

City Lounge: Paris (Book Two, Chapter Fifteen: Vow)

Chapter Fifteen: Vow:

I awoke back in my room the next morning. To my surprise, I found Simone sitting at the foot of my bed, watching me. I sat up with a perplexed look on my face.

“Simone?” I asked. “You stayed here all night? Watching me?”

“I had to,” she said. “It didn’t feel right to put you to bed and leave you after your little trip?” At first, what she said didn’t make any sense.

“Huh?” I asked.

“Last night, you were upset about your ex,” Simone said.

“I remember that part.”

“Well, I let you get it all out of your system. When you fell asleep, I remembered my promise to make you forget about her. So I figured that you needed a little pick-me-up to help flush your misery out for a night.” More

City Lounge: Paris (Book Two, Chapter Fourteen: Blue High)

Chapter Fourteen: Blue High:

I stirred awoke when someone shook me on the shoulder. I drew open my eyes to see Simone staring back at me. My vision was blurry without my glasses as I blinked.

“Simone?” I asked. “You’re still here, why?”

“Get up,” she whispered. “I have to show you something.” Her words woke me up to confusion.

“Huh?” I asked. The Indigo Queen grabbed me by the shoulder and tried to pull me off my bed. My face hit the floor.

“Whoa!” I shouted. “What the hell?!”

“Get up and get dressed,” Simone said. “I have a way to help solve your problems.” I tilted my head, blinking. More
