City Lounge: London (Book Two, Chapter Four: Sophie the Queen)

Chapter Four: Sophie the Queen:

-Paul-

Even tonight, Sophie still has a strange effect on me. Seeing her face changed my plans for tonight. Initially, I had just planned to go with the flow of playing crappy pop music for the ladies tonight. (My soul was dying in the process). But when I saw her face on the monitors above, something inside of me took over. I began to think about my own music. That day with Sophie started up my passion for music again.

Before I knew it, my fingers took over the DJ Booth. Something inside of me told me not think, but feel. I counted down to when the last Sam Smith song played out. My mind chanted Massive Attack.

Massive Attack. Massive Attack. Massive Attack Massive Attack. Massive Attack!

Before I knew it, “Angel” started floating through the club. More

City Lounge: Berlin (Book Two, Chapter Fourteen: Reached the Peak)

Chapter Fourteen: Reached the Peak:

Until now, I never thought much about sex. I guess I never found the right one. After high school, I didn’t focus much on relationships. I did have a few crushes in the early years of college, but they were a passing fancy. Sure, I’d find the right one soon, but I had other things to think about at the time.

Today however, I began a new journey. Sebastian kissed me on the forehead.

“Take me again,” I whispered. His eyes reminded me of a hungry wild dog. My lips curved into a smirk. He entered me again. More

City Lounge: Berlin (Book Two, Chapter Thirteen: Pushing the Limit III)

Chapter Thirteen: Pushing the Limit III:

It looked like I would have to take matters into my own hands. Problem was, I lacked experience in doing so. I’ve already made what I wanted very clear to him. If I said anymore, I would come off as annoying and desperate. Maybe I could try and be subtle.

I decided to try and see tonight.

Sebastian took me back to his place. Secretly, I got excited on where this could go. I leaned upwards and kissed him on the cheek. My love smiled and chuckled. I counted down the steps to his front door. He reached into his jeans pocket and unlocked the door. More

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 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: 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

City Lounge: Paris (Book Two, Chapter Fourteen: Blue High)

Chapter Fourteen: Blue High:

I stirred awoke when someone shook me on the shoulder. I drew open my eyes to see Simone staring back at me. My vision was blurry without my glasses as I blinked.

“Simone?” I asked. “You’re still here, why?”

“Get up,” she whispered. “I have to show you something.” Her words woke me up to confusion.

“Huh?” I asked. The Indigo Queen grabbed me by the shoulder and tried to pull me off my bed. My face hit the floor.

“Whoa!” I shouted. “What the hell?!”

“Get up and get dressed,” Simone said. “I have a way to help solve your problems.” I tilted my head, blinking. More

City Lounge: Paris (Book Two, Chapter Ten: Who is Simone?)

Chapter Ten: Who is Simone?:

I watched Simone across the table as we waited for the appetizers. Who exactly was she? Part of me is tilted to peel back to the curtain and see what’s behind the show. But if I do that, the magic will be gone. For days, I have been back and forth about this battle in my head.

Tonight, I didn’t try to hold back.

“Simone,” I spoke up.

“Yes?” she asked. Her voice made me hesitate at first. I slapped myself in the cheeks and shook my head. I must stay focused here. Just come out and ask it without any tripping over myself. More
