Lara would always remember that moment when the phone rang. It was 6.10 on a Saturday morning. It was 10th March. She had been wide awake before which was rather unusual for her but no way would she get up that early on a Saturday, staying in bed was all she wanted to do. When the phone call came in, she knew straight away what had happened.
“We’re going to file an appeal. This moron of a judge has flatly refused our case but she’s picked the wrong person to tangle with. We’ll show them that we’re right. Damn it, such people should be dumped, they’re a disgrace for their profession. From you,” I expect a top preparation. Any questions, you come to me. I want to be informed about every single detail. So, that’s it from my part. Anything from you?”
“That’s got nothing to do with it. You’re sometimes simply too rough“, he retorted.
“You already said so last time and it did you good. You will see, you will get up and feel like new”, Mariucca remarked unaffected by his response. “And besides, it is not my fault that you’re so tense. You should not work so much. You work, you’re tense, you work, you’re tense and in between I give you massage and try to help, what can be helped.”
Steph was sitting in front of her computer, she was rather stressed. Quickly the last entries before she would rush to get her train. She was really late again but she had to finish typing that last sentence. Perfect! Now, saving her file and then she would jog to the train station. Not exactly what she fancied doing now but what did her best friend Maja kept saying: “You have to do sport, darling!” 10 minutes jogging to the train station was sport, that had to do.
on me when I heard Prince Harry opening up in public about his mum’s death. I was in England with my family, having breakfast at a B&B. The TV was on and at first I thought: “I don’t like the TV on while I’m having breakfast.” But then I thought: “I quite like it, it’s BBC breakfast TV.” And then I heard Prince Harry talking about his mum’s death. I only got snippets as the others were talking and not paying attention. I just thought: “How most powerful! Stop talking everybody I want to listen.” (Of course I didn’t say anything, I am better behaved than that!)
