City Lounge: Berlin (Book Three, Chapter Fifteen: Mr. Smooth)

Chapter Fifteen: Mr. Smooth:

Sunday night rolled around. We were going to meet Sugar Bear Brown at the club. We all waited outside of Club Crisis. To my surprise, there was a long line. I hadn’t expected the clubs to fill up on a Sunday. Does anyone in Berlin ever sleep?

“Pretty full night, isn’t it?” I whispered to Meg.

“Yeah,” she said. “That’s Berlin’s nightlife for you.”

“You don’t say,” I said. Surprisingly, the line started moving along really fast. Pretty soon, we were in the front. Stephanie managed to charm her way for us to get in. The bouncer didn’t say a word as he left us in. I nodded my head as I walked by. More

City Lounge: Berlin (Book Three, Chapter Fourteen: Stephanie’s Boyfriend)

Chapter Fourteen: Stephanie’s Boyfriend:

As we were cleaning and diving up Stephanie’s junk, I hear her phone ringing.

“Stephanie!” I shouted from her room. “Your phone’s ringing!”

“Okay!” she said. I looked at her phone charging on the nightstand. When I caught a glimpse of the name I got puzzled. Who’s Sugar Bear Brown? I looked up when Stephanie burst through the door. I stepped aside as she picked up her phone.

“Hello?” she asked. “Babe! How have you been?” I watched as she moved around in the spot where she had her phone charging. Wait… Does Stephanie have a boyfriend now? When did this happen? Who was he? Why hadn’t she said anything? Did her troupe know? More

City Lounge: Berlin (Book Three, Chapter Thirteen: Dividing and Cleaning)

Chapter Thirteen: Dividing and Cleaning:

I didn’t have hopes on the acting troupe to clean up Stephanie’s apartment. But, they were helpful will clearing out everything she had been hoarding. I didn’t expect them to come over right away. I looked up when I heard the doorbell ring.

“I’ll get it!” Stephanie said. She leapt up and hurried over to the door. I looked up in time to see her opening the door to her acting troupe. My jaw dropped.

“Hello, Garth!” she said.

“Hey,” he said. “How’s it been?”

“Oh, we’re just cleaning up my flat here,” Stephanie said. I came around just in time to see Garth give her an odd look. More

City Lounge: Berlin (Book Three, Chapter Twelve: Cleaning House)

Chapter Twelve: Cleaning House:

Stephanie led us back to her apartment. I wouldn’t let her stall. She kept looking over her shoulder at Sebastian and me. He had his hands stuffed into his pockets. I had my hands on my hips.

“Don’t try to pull anything on us,” I said. “Take us straight to your apartment.”

“Yeah, yeah,” she said, brushing me off.

“I mean it!” I said.

“I know!” Stephanie said back. We finally made it to her front door. She turned to Sebastian.

“Welcome to my flat of doom,” she said. “Em’s already been here today.”

“It’s a mess,” I said. Stephanie frowned at me. More

City Lounge: Berlin (Book Three, Chapter Eleven: The New Emily)

Chapter Eleven: The New Emily:

Already with my new hair I felt like a new person. I couldn’t stop looking at myself in the mirror. Stephanie had to tap me on the shoulder and clear my throat.

“I know you’re pretty,” she said. “But we’re not done.” I turned with a curious look on my face.

“Oh?” I asked.

“Wait here,” she said. Stephanie disappeared down the hall to the living room. When she came back, she had the bag in her hand.

“We just need to add the final touches,” she said. I found myself smiling.

“Yes ma’am,” I said. I sat down on the toilet and waited. Stephanie got right to work. More

City Lounge: Berlin (Book Three, Chapter Ten: Beauty Shopping)

Chapter Ten: Beauty Shopping:

Stephanie and I went out to the local shops for the rest of my makeover.

“You don’t need to wear too much makeup,” she said. “Just a small amount will do you just fine.”

“If you say so,” I said.

“I know so,” Stephanie said. She narrowed her eyes at me in front of the store. “Hm…”

“What?” I asked.

“You would look great with a darker color,” my best friend said.

“Okay…” I said.

“I mean it,” Stephanie said.

“Okay,” I said again. She grinned and took me by the arm. I followed her in without any argument. More

City Lounge: Berlin (Book Three, Chapter Nine: New Life for Emily)

Chapter Nine: New Life for Emily:

I am tired of being the good girl. The more I think about, the more I realize that I am really that boring. But, I don’t want to do anything too extreme. I’m not really that brave to try anything like that. I looked at myself in the mirror. I’ve always had a baby face. Round cheeks, small nose,  brown freckles, and a big forehead. I looked cute.

Too cute.

I don’t have to look sexy. I just want to look… more mature. I knew I was taking a gamble with this. I picked up the phone and made the call. More

I am Back

I have survived the storm.

I lost power Friday evening. I managed to finish my drafts before the battery in my laptop got too low. Power came back Saturday, but I had no internet. So, I played Sims and wrote to pass the time. The internet finally came back up on Sunday. So, I played catch up with my posting and writing. And now, here I am. I am alive, my home is okay, and my work is done.

I finished The Innocents today. The pacing is good and they didn’t reveal who the bad guys was until the season finale. I wonder what they are going to do for season two next year. Next, I will watch the movie, Threads. And then maybe check out The Conjuring. I will see how I fill. I need some new podcasts though.

Oh and I am resuming City Lounge: Berlin tomorrow. Until then…

City Lounge: Berlin (Book Three, Chapter Eight: Lace and Speeding)

Chapter Eight: Lace and Speeding:

We didn’t leave the Watergate until about close to two in the morning. I leaned on Sebastian, smiling.

“Take me home with you,” I said. He smiled as he patted me on the head.

“Are you sure about that?” he asked.

“Yes!” I shouted. I broke into laughter like a drunk person. Funny thing was I didn’t have that much alcohol to drink. I leaned up and tried to kiss him. Sebastian gently pushed me back.

“Alright,” he said in a low voice. “I’ll take you home with me.”

“Yay!” I shouted with my hands in the air. I couldn’t stop laughing as I twirled about in his arms. Sebastian stopped and turned my to face him. More

City Lounge: Berlin (Book Three, Chapter Seven: Queen of the Club)

Chapter Seven: Queen of the Club

“How many times have you done this?” I asked Sebastian as we walked through the entrance.

“I think about four times now,” he said.

“Four times?!” I asked.

“Daniel is a good guy,” my love said. “He helped me through college.” I raised my eyebrow.

“How?” I asked.

“It’s a long story,” Sebastian brushed off as he led me further into the club. I could hear the music pounding from the hallway. When we got inside, it looked like an actual concert was taking place. So many people danced around us. A mix of rock and trip-hop blasted through the air. I’ve never been a fan of trip-hop to begin with. I like calmer things like soft rock and a little classical. More
