City Lounge: New York (Book Two, Chapter Eleven: Party Night Out)

Chapter Eleven: Party Night Out:

Friday night.

Maggie and Naomi sat at the bar at a nightclub.

“Why am I out with you again?” Maggie asked. Naomi turned to her grinning.

“Why else?” she asked. “You need to get out more. How else are you ever getting laid?” Her friend narrowed her eyes at her.

“I don’t need your help,” she growled.

“Excuse me?” Naomi asked.

“Nothing,” Maggie lied. They looked out at the people dancing on the dancefloor. New York on a Friday night was the best. Saturday night sat right next to it. The women watched the brightly-colored lights flashing around them. Naomi leaned over on the bar. More

City Lounge: New York (Book Two, Chapter Ten: Izzie’s Mental Game)

Chapter Ten: Izzie’s Mental Game:

Izzie raised her eyebrow at Neil.

“So, talk to me,” she said. “Who exactly are you?” The butch woman lowered her eyes.

“Uh, I like bikes,” she said.

“Do you?”

“Yeah.”

“What kind?” Izzie leaned in with her eyes fixed on her target. She had only heard the stories of Neil from Hayley. The way she talked, this butch lesbian sounded like Michael Myers. But from she saw, Neil looked like a shy little bunny rabbit aching to run away.

“Harley-Davidson.”

“Ah. Suits you well.”

“Uh… Thanks.”

Izzie tilted her head. “You don’t talk much, do you?” Neil looked away, blushing. Izzie sat back with her arms behind her head. More

City Lounge: New York (Book Two, Chapter Five: Lonely Little Man)

Chapter Five: Lonely Little Man:

Lily had just finished up the latest installment of Sophia’s wonderful adventures aboard when there was a knock on the door. The old woman rolled her eyes.

“It never fails,” she muttered.

“Oh,” Naomi said. “Is it him again?”

“Yeah,” her neighbor said. “Who’s getting the door this time?” The three women grimance.

“I went last time,” Maggie said. Lily sighed.

“I’ll get it,” she said. Naomi and Maggie made uncomfortable face as the old lady stood up and opened the door. A black man in his seventies carrying a bottle of liquor in a brown paper bag. His teeth were crooked as he gritted. More

City Lounge: New York (Book Two, Chapter Three: Tough, Old Broad)

Chapter Three: Tough, Old Broad:

Her name is Lily Thatcher. And she doesn’t take shit from anybody. She’s seen New York in 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s. In her 70’s, Lily is proud that she stopped giving a shit over the little things long ago.

Maybe that ‘s why Naomi admires her so much.

Today, Lily sat on couch, smoking a cigarette. Maggie and Naomi sat across the room.

“So,” Naomi said. “How have you been?”

“Good, honey,” Lily said. She stuffed her thin cigarette between her thin lips. It was going to be another hot day around the city. Lily had the air conditioner blasting overhead. More

City Lounge: London (Book Two, Chapter Fourteen: Camera Love)

Chapter Fourteen: Camera Love:

-Sophie-

When was the last time I held a camera? I sat in my room and stared at my first camera. It was like one of those toys that made the clicking noise, but took no pictures. Dad gave it to me for my fourth birthday. I don’t remember a day where that plastic red and yellow camera wasn’t with me. Mum would try and hide from me when I had it pointed at her. When I got older, the equipment got more advanced.

I had always loved taking pictures from when I was a little girl. Those cameras felt so good in my hands. A cell phone can’t match the feel of a classic camera. I don’t understand where that love went. More

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 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 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 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 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
