City Lounge: Berlin (Book Two, Chapter Fifteen: New World)

Chapter Fifteen: New World:

I feel like it’s a new era for me.

When I got up this morning, it felt like the sun was shining on me. Despite the calls for rain today, I could still feel warm all over. I probably could’ve gotten lost in that movie, Singing in the Rain, if it did rain. I walked into work, smiling.

“Good morning,” I said to the receptionist. The small blonde woman looked up at me while she was on the phone and waved. I waved back before heading to the elevator. For once, I didn’t mind the old German music playing on the way up. I even felt like dancing to it. Who cares if the cameras were watching or not? More

City Lounge: Berlin (Book Two, Chapter Fourteen: Reached the Peak)

Chapter Fourteen: Reached the Peak:

Until now, I never thought much about sex. I guess I never found the right one. After high school, I didn’t focus much on relationships. I did have a few crushes in the early years of college, but they were a passing fancy. Sure, I’d find the right one soon, but I had other things to think about at the time.

Today however, I began a new journey. Sebastian kissed me on the forehead.

“Take me again,” I whispered. His eyes reminded me of a hungry wild dog. My lips curved into a smirk. He entered me again. More

City Lounge: Berlin (Book Two, Chapter Thirteen: Pushing the Limit III)

Chapter Thirteen: Pushing the Limit III:

It looked like I would have to take matters into my own hands. Problem was, I lacked experience in doing so. I’ve already made what I wanted very clear to him. If I said anymore, I would come off as annoying and desperate. Maybe I could try and be subtle.

I decided to try and see tonight.

Sebastian took me back to his place. Secretly, I got excited on where this could go. I leaned upwards and kissed him on the cheek. My love smiled and chuckled. I counted down the steps to his front door. He reached into his jeans pocket and unlocked the door. More

City Lounge: Berlin (Book Two, Chapter Twelve: Pushing the Limit II)

Chapter Twelve: Pushing the Limit II:

I am not getting satisfaction. I don’t know why I’m pushing it either. We’ve only been on a few dates. It shouldn’t be serious, right? We’re in a stable relationship now. There’s nothing wrong with taking it slow. People still do that, you know? But I do like kissing him. I did promise him to be my first. Plus, Stephanie keeps asking when are we going to do it.

“We could’ve last night,” I said.

“Then what happened?” she asked. I dropped my shoulders and sighed.

“We fell asleep,” I said. My crazy friend frowned.

“That’s it?” she asked.

“Yeah.” More

City Lounge: Berlin (Book Two, Chapter Eleven: Push the Limit)

Chapter Eleven: Push the Limit:

For some reason that night, my guests didn’t leave. We stayed up drinking and talking. (They did most of the drinking. I limited myself after dinner.) It stunned me how much beer Sebastian could put away and not feel the effects of it. Stephanie on the other hand…

“Hey guys!” she shouted. “How come you’re not drunk like me? *Hic*”

“I don’t really drink much,” I said.

“I’m good at drinking,” Sebastian said. Stephanie stared at us with a red face and hiccupped.

“Oh,” she said. My crazy friend broke down laughing. My boyfriend, (I’m not used to calling him that just yet), gave me a strange look. More

City Lounge: Berlin (Book Two, Chapter Ten: Couple Celebration)

Chapter Ten: Couple Celebration:

That same evening, Stephanie learned the news that Sebastian and I became a couple again. She clapped her hands together and grinned.

“Wow! I’m so happy for you!” she said.

“Thanks,” I said. We already told you this and you went back to sleep! Stephanie jumped to her feet.

“Let’s celebrate!” she said. I gave her a blank stare.

“You were too bored to do anything a couple of hours ago,” I pointed out. My crazy friend raised her arms in the air.

“I’m awake now,” she said. “It’s time to celebrate the happy couple!” Stephanie marched over to my door. More

City Lounge: Berlin (Book Two, Chapter Nine: Nothing Much to Do)

Chapter Nine: Nothing Much to Do:

Another weekend at my apartment. The three of us lay on the living room floor. Stephanie lifted her head.

“I’m bored,” she complained.

“So what do you want to do?” I asked. She shrugged and shook her head.

“I don’t know,” my crazy friend said.

“Do we have to do anything?” Sebastian asked.

“But I’m bored,” Stephanie said.

“Yes, we know,” I said. Usually, I would reach over to my remote and turn on some music to shut her up. But, even I felt too lazy to do that.

“Anyone hungry?” I asked.

“No,” my guests said. More

City Lounge: Berlin (Book Two, Chapter Eight: Sweet City in Berlin)

Chapter Eight: Sweet City in Berlin:

Sebastian and I have been on three dates now. He’s a really sweet guy. His wild nature kind of scared me at first. But, I am coming to accept that as part of who he is. Sebastian is really good to me. He doesn’t try to push me to be something that I am not. He’s even as patient with me. Everything has been going great. (I’m not sure when is the right time to call him my boyfriend or if he wants that yet.) Stephanie is also cheering us on.

“You two are so cute together,” she told me last week. I sat there at the table blushing. More

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
