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 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

City Lounge: Paris (Book Three, Chapter Thirteen: Sweet Shop Downtown)

Chapter Thirteen: Sweet Shop Downtown:

“We have one more place to go,” Simone told me after dinner.

“And where would that be?” I asked. She turned to me with a smile on her face.

“Mama’s favorite sweet shop down here,” my love said. “Jean-Paul Hévin!”

“Jean… what?” I asked. My girl giggled.

“Come along and you will see,” she said. I smiled and shrugged.

“Okay,” I said. When I first looked at Jean-Paul Hévin, my jaw dropped. I thought I would die from a diabetic coma just by looking at everything they had on display. Chocolates, bars, macarons, and pastries. I blinked and rubbed my eyes. More

City Lounge: Paris (Book Three, Chapter Twelve: Simple Dinner in Paris)

Chapter Twelve: Simple Dinner in Paris:

Simone led us into the downtown part of Paris. I’ve seen this place before, but it never fails to surprise me.

“This never gets old,” I said. I pulled Simone close by the waist. “Lead the way.” I whispered above her head. My girl giggled as we walked down the street. We ended up at a restaurant called Il était Un Square.

“What do you think?” she asked. I blinked at first.

“Isn’t this a bit too…?” I began to ask.

“What?” she asked. I shook my head.

“No, it’s fine,” I said. Simone led me inside. The red paint on the walls made me feel a bit underdressed. My love didn’t seem to mind. I turned to her. More

City Lounge: Paris (Book Three, Chapter Eleven: Walking Around in Paris… Again)

Chapter Eleven: Walking Around in Paris… Again:

Simone looked up at me. “Do you want to do more shopping or go get dinner?”

I shrugged. “Depends on you.”

“Sometimes, I would like you to lead the way,” my love says. I would love to, my dear. But, you have all of the power. I just happily follow you wherever you go. Simone snuggled up to me in the rain lightening up.

“I feel like walking around some more,” she said. I nodded a little bit.

“Sounds good to me,” I said. Simone smiled and giggled. Good thing that the rain is starting to stop. Paris still looks good in this weather. Texas looked so dull in the rain. I felt Simone’s head against my shoulder. More

City Lounge: Paris (Book Three, Chapter Ten: Strange Wine Shop)

Chapter Ten: Strange Wine Shop:

Simone led me down to this building made of wood. This building… Where the hell did it come from? I looked around at the other buildings on the street. Everything else looked new and modern. But this building…

“Why is it made of wood?” I asked.

“Owner’s choice,” Simone said.

“Why?” I asked.

“Because he wanted it that way,” she said. My girl walked up to the glass doors. I couldn’t take my eyes off of this shop. Wooden building. Purple lighting. Hearts on the window. Dolls hanging from the edge of the roof. Dead looking flowers in the front. Is this really a wine shop? It looks so tiny. More

City Lounge: Paris (Book Three, Chapter Nine: Walking in the Rain)

Chapter Nine: Walking in the Rain:

The rain really came down. I grabbed onto Simone as she led the way. I really wished that I could’ve brought my umbrella with me. My girl and I could cuddle together underneath it in this rain. My cheeks turned red as I pictured it.

“Do you want dinner first or shopping?” Simone asked. I looked down with a puzzled look on my face.

“Hm?” I asked.

“Do you want to eat first or go shopping more?” she asked. I smiled and shook my head.

“Can we keep walking for now?” I asked. She smiled and tapped me on the nose. More

City Lounge: Paris (Book Three, Chapter Eight: Strange Beauty)

Chapter Eight: Strange Beauty:

I still can’t figure Simone out at times. We’ve been dating for four months now. Somehow, she still manages to surprise me. I looked at a vintage movie poster on the wall of the record store. The woman looking all sensual in the splashes of bright pink, orange, and yellow reminded me of Simone in way. Speaking of which, I felt someone tapping me on the shoulder. I glanced out behind me from the corner of me. Simone stood, smiling.

“Want to go upstairs?” she asked. I turned around with my eyebrow raised.

“Upstairs?” I asked. “There is an upstairs?” Simone giggled and took me by the hand. Okay, my sexy witch. Where are you taking me now? More
