When Amaya rested her head on his shoulder and slowly drifted to sleep, Christoph smiled to himself and decided to gaze out the window the rest of the way back to Berlin. At some point, Amaya wrapped her arms around his, kicked off her flats, and curled her bare feet with their purple painted toenails up onto the seat. Christoph’s heart fluttered as he felt Amaya cling to his arm. It was a strange feeling, one almost entirely forgotten, of having a woman he could claim as his girlfriend. He, too, was tired, but all he could think about was their day in Salzburg, and even more so, the kiss he shared with Amaya. He replayed the scene over and over like a love-struck school boy until finally, he had fallen asleep with his head against the window. He didn’t wake until the feeling of the train jostling to a halt shook his head.
He jerked up and looked at Amaya who was still sleeping soundly on his shoulder. He nu

The bar across the street wasn’t one of those dives you went to when you were in college for cheap beer. The establishment was well kept, and had a large array of high quality alcohol. The bartender was a young, talkative man who put on a little show every few fancy drinks he made for those sitting at the bar or waiting at a corner for their drink to be prepared.
Christoph enjoyed the atmosphere the moment he walked in. It was like walking into a mid-century club where the finer life stayed to chat and drink their drinks. Christoph spotted Quentin sitting at a stool up at the bar, an empty stool just beside him. Christoph snaked between people who stood and milled about holding glasses and talking loudly.
"Hallo, Quentin," Christoph said as he slid onto the bar stool.
"Hey, Chris! You made it! Order whatever you want, man. It’s on me." Quentin greeted.
The bartender noticed the patron and made his way over to Ch

Amaya stood in front of the mirror in her hotel room examining her outfit. She had literally gone through all of her clothes in a frenzy to find the perfect outfit to wear — something cute but comfortable since they would probably be doing a lot of sightseeing. Since it was still very late in the winter but close to spring, the weather was fall-like and chilly. She went with a pair of tan khakis, a denim jacket with a purple shirt underneath, and dark brown Mary Jane flats that were good and well worn. Around her neck was her small silver sparrow necklace, and her earlobes were decorated with a pair of silver hoops and a pair of silver posts. At the top of her left ear was another small hoop. Her red hair fell in natural waves around her face, and she kept the makeup more on the natural side, only putting on some mascara and a little eyeliner on the top lids.
It had been a few weeks before Amaya and Christoph's sc

When they got to Cafe Bazar, Amaya was really amazed at how upscale it was. Every place that Christoph had taken her seemed opulent by her simple standards. She had already observed that Christoph seemed to have somewhat high class tastes — or at least high class to her. Maybe the definition of high class, she surmised, was different in Europe than it was in America. She smiled as Christoph requested a table outside, for the weather had proven to be much warmer than in the original forecast. The host led them to a nice little table where the Salzach River was in perfect view. She received her lunch menu, and again she had no idea what she wanted. But there were pictures, and that helped.
She looked up from her menu to look at Christoph. “This is a really nice place,” she remarked as she tried to decide what she wanted. She supposed she should look at the coffee menu first. She was in dire need of it sin

Amaya hated parting with Christoph but she had a job to do, and he of all people could understand that. But the production manager certainly had made a point to bomb their conversation. That really sucked, but she was glad she got to see Christoph, even if only for a short few minutes. She showed the production manager her choices of storyboards to show Quentin, all done in traditional media since they were essentially sketches, although the ones with Christoph were a little more detailed. She really liked drawing him, especially his hard jawline and his eyes -- he had the handsomest eyes.
She returned to finish painting the set, which only took about another hour to find all the white spots, fill them in, and repair the worn places from it being moved around so much. Then she went to her drawing board in her makeshift cubicle to start drawing a storyboard for an ending scene of the movie. Pitt and Novak were supposed to pin C
