City Lounge: Paris (Book Three, Chapter Seven: Hiding from the Rain)

Chapter Seven: Hiding from the Rain:

I felt a drop on my cheek.

“Oh,” I said. When I looked up it started to rain. I turned to Simone.

“Now what?” I asked.

“Come with me,” Simone said. She grabbed me by the hand and started running away. My girl laughed as we ran. Okay, next part of the story was coming up. I bet we will finally get home about three in morning tomorrow. But somehow, I don’t care. I forgot what a rush love can give. I keep wanting to jump further down the hole with Simone. Was love always like this? I want to say it was, but I am not so sure. More


City Lounge: Paris (Book Three, Chapter Six: People Watching in Paris)

Chapter Six: People Watching in Paris:

It felt good to be on dry land after lunch. I anticipated where we would go next. Simone seemed charged to see to seek out the next adventure. She turned around to me.

“Shall we go to the park?” she asked.

“Sure,” I said. She took hold of my hand and led me down the street. I had a dumb smile on my face. Yes, my witch. I will follow your lead no matter what.

“What will we do when we get there?” I asked.

“You’ll see when we get there,” Simone said. My ears perked up when she said that.

“Okay then,” I said. More

City Lounge: Paris (Book Three, Chapter Five: Lunch on the River)

Chapter Five: Lunch on the River:

Around noon, Simone turned around with a smile on her face.

“Are you ready for lunch?” she asked. I raised my eyebrow.

“What do you have in mind?” I asked.

“Eating lunch on the Seine river,” Simone said. “We’ll see the view and enjoy a nice meal.”

“Oh?” I asked. I’ve heard of these type of tours, but I’ve never had the money or the time. She took me by the hand.

“My treat,” she said. Once again, her words put me back under her spell. I just had to see where this lunch on the Seine was going. More

City Lounge: Paris (Book Three, Chapter Four: Fun Night)

Chapter Four: Fun Night:

Last night was amazing. Simone came over and lured me into a hot night. She’s been coming around my apartment more and more often lately. I’m not complaining. Simone’s always coming up with fun stuff for us to do. Last night was no different.

-Last Night-

I hadn’t planned on doing anything for the night. My video game felt kind of dull, but I pushed myself to keep going. The French campaign mocked me. The enemy kept trying to kill me. What was I missing here? I checked every place around me in this level.

Suddenly, my doorbell buzzed. I lifted my head. Hm?  Who could that be at this hour? I got up and walked over to the door. More

City Lounge: Paris (Book Three, Chapter Three: King of Paris)

Chapter Three: King of Paris:

When I’m with Simone, things happen. She wakes up things around her. The day seems brighter. Everyone seems to come to life and sing. People look like they were smiling and laughing. The city doesn’t look so boring. It feels like being in a  I don’t know how she does it. Simone really must be a witch. She makes me feel like a king.

Simone turned around to me with the camera out. I put up my hand.

“Come on, please?” I asked.

“It’s part of the project,” she said.

“I’m starting to think this is just an excuse to take pictures of me,” I said. My girlfriend smiled and twirled about.

“Maybe,” she said. I frowned. You’ll lucky you’re that pretty. More

City Lounge: Paris (Book Three, Chapter Two: Date Day)

Chapter Two: Date Day:

Simone turned around to me. “Let’s go on a date.” I raised my eyebrow.

“Right now?” I asked.

“Yes,” she said. Simone took me by the hand and led me down the street. She likes doing spontaneous things like this. I am growing used to it by now. Besides, Simone picks out the best places to go. What is she going to take me today?

This felt like a stay-out all day type of day. Fine with me, it’s Sunday after all. I don’t have to work today. Another day that I don’t have to see Paula’s face. More

City Lounge: Paris (Book Three, Chapter One: Nothing to Do Around Paris)

City Lounge: Paris

Chapter One: Nothing to Do Around Paris:


Six months in and we are still together. I am pretty much used to Simone’s wild and adventurous ways. I look forward to where she’s going to be taking me each day. Her family and I get along very well. (Okay, Charlotte still isn’t fond of me. But, she doesn’t count for this.)

I woke to find my lovely in the kitchen. Simone was turning on the coffee pot as she hummed. She’s been staying over at my place lately. I couldn’t remember a night when I was alone. I snickered to myself as I crept up behind her. I embraced her from behind and kissed her on the neck. Simone giggled as she bunched up. More

City Lounge: Paris (Book Two, Chapter Fifteen: Vow)

Chapter Fifteen: Vow:

I awoke back in my room the next morning. To my surprise, I found Simone sitting at the foot of my bed, watching me. I sat up with a perplexed look on my face.

“Simone?” I asked. “You stayed here all night? Watching me?”

“I had to,” she said. “It didn’t feel right to put you to bed and leave you after your little trip?” At first, what she said didn’t make any sense.

“Huh?” I asked.

“Last night, you were upset about your ex,” Simone said.

“I remember that part.”

“Well, I let you get it all out of your system. When you fell asleep, I remembered my promise to make you forget about her. So I figured that you needed a little pick-me-up to help flush your misery out for a night.” More
