Paparazzi - Chapter 1Paparazzi - Chapter 1 by Amani-Ishikawa
The wheels of the Boeing 757 screeched on the runway, and Amaya Thomas was awakened by the slight jolt of the main landing gear making contact with the pavement of the runway. She lulled her head to the side and looked out the window at the familiar scene of the LAX terminal, yet she could not wake up. Amaya had been traveling for nearly 14 hours, and she was exhausted from both jet lag and the time difference. Not only that, but changing flights at Laguardia in New York City had been absolute hell, thanks to customs and getting through security checkpoints.
She had been in Germany for about nine months working on the set for Inglourious Basterds, Quentin Tarantino's latest movie, though now that the film was in its final editing after Cannes, she would not be allowed to talk much about the content of the film until after its premiere and release here in the United States.

Auf Wiedersehen, Mein Liebling
Despite their desires, the both of them eventually fell asleep that night. Christoph was the first to sleep. He had been so worn out by their long lovemaking that it was easy to slip into sleep once he closed his eyes. He would not remember his dreams when he woke, but it wouldn’t have mattered even if he did. When Christoph woke that morning, all he felt was the dread of knowing that it was soon time for them to part.
Naturally, Christoph woke earlier than Amaya, and earlier than he had to be. But he got up quietly, took a shower, dressed, and made his way to the kitchen to cook her one last breakfast. He made a grand show of it. Christoph brewed Amaya’s favorite coffee he had from Austria, he made bacon, eggs, and chocolate chip pancakes. He even warmed up the maple syrup just right, and made the eggs both scrambled and over easy.
Once breakfast was prepared, he went into th
