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:

-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: Berlin (Book One, Chapter Fifteen: Sebastian + Emily)

Chapter Fifteen: Sebastian + Emily:

“Talk to me,” Sebastian said.

“About what?” I asked.

“Anything. Tell me anything about yourself. Engage me.”

“Okay… Uh… I love Germany.”

“Why?”

“My grandparents. They were from here.”

“Is that right?”

“Yes.” It felt like I was interviewed for a job. It didn’t help that he had his eyes locked on me. I felt like I was shrinking. “Why are you so interested in me?”

“Why not?”

I gave him a strange look. “Is that all?”

“Did you expect more?” I didn’t know whether to scream or grit my teeth at his smirk. Why did he have to be so good-looking? More

City Lounge: Berlin (Book One, Chapter Fourteen: House Party)

Chapter Fourteen: House Party:

Sebastian ended up taking us to this house party further into Kreuzburg. We stopped in front of a nice-looking house. Sebastian turned to us with his arms out.

“Welcome, to the first party of a life together!” he said. I had to admit, the house looked rather upscale, something I would see out of a magazine. The white bricks stood out in contrast to the darker-looking buildings. In fact, the lights from the inside shined brighter than the ones along the street.

“Who lives here?” Stephanie asked.

“My friend, Donna,” he said. “She’s a really good coworker of mine.” That beautiful man walked up to the door and knocked. He stepped back when it opened a crack. More

City Lounge: Berlin (Book One, Chapter Thirteen: Night Wandering)

Chapter Thirteen: Night Wandering:

“So where are we going now?” Stephanie asked. Sebastian walked in front of us, chuckling.

“It’s a surprise,” he said.

“Can’t you give us a hint?” she asked.

“No.”

Stephanie pouted. “You’re not fun!”

“It wouldn’t be fun to spoil the surprise.”

I stared at his back as we walked. Who was this beautiful man? Why was he so interested in us? We just met up this afternoon in the park and he hadn’t stopped following use around since. For some reason, most of his focus seems to be directed to me. Sebastian had told me a little bit about himself, but I still couldn’t figure him out. More
