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

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
