I land at the Hamburg airport at midnight. I go get my bag and head outside. I was going to ride in a cab but since it's so late I'm just going to take the subway. I get to my apartment building and take the stairs up, I'm going to be living in apartment D3. My new roomate, Waltraud, stayed up and waited for me. She was very pretty, she had blonde hair, blue eyes, very European looking.
"You didn't have to wait up for me, ya know!" I laughed.
"I wanted to!" She said a little to excited. "Let me help you with your bags."
"Thanks." I say.
Waltraud and I stayed up talking and getting to know each other. She has one younger sister, Nadja. she has two older brothers, Kai and Lotar. And she has a boyfriend named Axel, who is a chef. When were done talking we both realize its almost 3:00 am.
"At home I'd just be getting up." I tell her, considering were 6 hours ahead of Germany.
"Well, I have to get up in a few hours for work." she says. "Do you have a job?"
"Yep, at some German bakery. I start next week. I wanted to get here early to go sight seeing and get to know things better. You know, adapt to your world." I tell her.
She starts laughing. "Well, I'm off 3 days this week so maybe i could help."
"That'd be great!" I say, "thanks a lot."
She gets up and hug me. "Guten Nacht." She says with a smile then goes to bed.
I go to my room and get my laptop out. I know Leo will be up so I'm going to face time him. I try the first time. No answer. I wait ten minutes then try again. No answer. When i try a third time and get no answer, I give up and cut out the light and try to go to sleep. I woke up to my phone ringing. I look at the clock, it was almost 11:30. Then I look at my phone, Leo was face timing me. I wake myself up as best I can then answer.
"Hey pumpkin." I say.
"Hey," he says "how was your flight?"
"Fine, I guess. About as exciting a plane ride can get!"
He laughs then suddenly stops.
"You OK?" I ask.
"Yea," he said "just a little tired. I should let you go, I know its early over there."
"Oh OK," I say "Bye, love you."
"Love you, too." He said, almost forced.
I hung up then went to take a shower, rethinking how Leo acted on the phone. When I got out I saw i had a message from him. 'sorry, cupcake about how I acted on the phone. Works been stressing me out. I love you sooooo much.' 'Its OK, love you too:)' I respond. I dress myself in my stretchy pants and a tanktop to go for a run. I turn on Lift Me Up by The Afters. For some reason it gets my endorphin's going. When I'm Almost back to my apartment I get a text. 'Hey Ava. Its Niall. I just wanted to let you know Harry and I are going to visit his uncle in the next month or so. I was curious if you wanted to hang out then?' 'Sure:) I'd love to!' I respond. 'Great! I'll see you then, I guess.' 'Guess so;)' I smile to myself as i unlock my door. An almost angelic smell hit me in the face. I walk in to see Waltraud with who i can only guess is Axel.
"Hey," I say "What is that amazing smell?"
" Axel is making grilled cheese."
"That's grilled cheese?!" I say a little too excited.
"Yep, Axel answered. "Sit and you can have one."
I sit at the table in front of Waltraud as he slid a grilled cheese on my plate. I took a bite and fell in love.
"Axel, you and I are going to be great friends!" I joke.
