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

City Lounge: Berlin (Book Three, Chapter Six: High-Class Party)

Chapter Six: High-Class Party:

Sometimes, I like things with high-class. Sebastian doesn’t fail to deliver either. He leaned down to my ear as I wished that I could disappear into the sand after that game.

“I’ll make it up to you tomorrow night,” he whispered. I glanced up at him, wide-eyed.

“What?” I mouthed.

“Em!” I heard Stephanie shout. “Your turn!”

“Huh? Oh,” I said. I sat up and looked around. I finally settled on Meg. I turned in Sebastian’s arms.

“How many men have you slept with?” I asked. I don’t know why I asked that. It just slipped out. Maybe it was the alcohol. Meg broke into a huge smile like a drunk clown. More

City Lounge: Berlin (Book Three, Chapter Five: Beach Games)

Chapter Five: Beach Games:

Stephanie finished her beer.

“Let’s play a game,” she said. We all looked at her.

“What kind of game?” Garth asked. My friend smirked.

“A game of truths,” she said.

“Oooo!” her troupe said. I looked around at all of the people around the grill. What were they, twelve?

“How do we play?” I asked. My friend winked.

“It’s really easy,” she said. “Someone asks a question to another person and they have to answer it. If they lie, the rest of the group has to take a drink.” I raised my eyebrow. More

City Lounge: Berlin (Book Three, Chapter Four: Night on the Beach)

Chapter Four: Night on the Beach:

I used to go to the beach when I was a kid. My parents had friends out near the coast of California. We would go up and visit them during the summer. I would play in the water and splash around. Dad and I would always run from the waves when the tide came in. Those beach trips stopped when my parents and I moved further east to take care of grandpa. Then, school came along and ate up my life. Come to think of it, the fun stopped when I moved east. This might be my chance to get it back in Berlin. More

City Lounge: Berlin (Book Three, Chapter Three: Hot German Nights)

Chapter Three: Hot German Nights:

I’m not as boring as Stephanie make me out to be now that I think about it. Sebastian sees to that himself. I rolled over onto my stomach and buried my face into my pillow. That man can do things that even a nun can’t say no to. Last night was a hot example of how his charm draws you in.

He invited me out to a jazz club. I had to follow him out just to see where this night was headed.

“Some friends are playing in Berlin tonight,” he said over the phone. “Would you like to come out and see them?” I just had to say yes. He laughed at me squeaking on my end of the line. More

City Lounge: Berlin (Book Three, Chapter Two: Am I Really That Boring?)

Chapter Two: Am I Really That Boring?:

I can’t be that boring, can I? I sat in my bathtub, staring at the ceiling. I have never been out to party. Most of my classmates went to dances and prom. I stayed home and read. Maybe watch a little TV with mom.  Come to think of it, she tried to make me a little more sociable. She’s done that ever since I was little.

“Come on, don’t you want to make some friends?” she asked when I was five. At the time, I stayed by her side. I hid behind her and shook my head. More

City Lounge: Berlin (Book Three)

Chapter One: Living Wild:

-Emily-

Stephanie was the one to push things further. She turned to me one day while sitting on the couch.

“Is this all you do all day?” she asked. I lifted my head from my book.

“Huh?” I asked.

“Do you just read when you have days off?” Stephanie asked.

“Not always,” I said. “You and Sebastian always try to drag me out everywhere.”

“And when we don’t?”

I tilted my head, thinking. “I do clean the house with the TV on in the background.” She pretended to yawn.

“What?” I asked. More

City Lounge: Paris (Book Three, Chapter Fifteen: Thoughts in the Middle of the Night)

Chapter Fifteen: Thoughts in the Middle of the Night:

I couldn’t fall asleep right away. I stared at Simone as she slept. We’ve been out on the city for the whole day. She dragged me everywhere. I just happily followed behind. I didn’t mind it either. The more I am with her, the more I start to see the beauty of Paris that I thought was a fairy tale.

I rolled over onto my back.

Now that I think about it, it doesn’t feel like that it’s been months that we have been together. I could’ve sworn that it was five years now. Would we really make it that far? I thought that would be the case with Paula. Ha, look how that turned out. More

City Lounge: Paris (Book Three, Chapter Fourteen: Flirty Games)

Chapter Fourteen: Flirty Games:

We finally made it back to her apartment. Simone kissed me at the door. I readied myself for what was going to happen next. She reached over and unlocked the door. I kissed her again as she pulled me inside. We ended up against the wall.

“What do you want tonight?” I asked, looking in her eyes. Simone playfully tapped me on the nose.

“You,” she said. “I only want you.” I kissed her again. I love when she says that. We ended up back to her bedroom.  This was the second time that I had been in her apartment. The first time ended up being six in the morning by the time we got there. But, I only had been in her living room. Simone dragged me into her room while I was lost in my thoughts. She flopped down onto her bed. She looked up at me as I huddled on top of her. This pattern never got old. I was never like this was Paula.

I had to push my ex out of my head and focus. More
