Welcome, Sixers! Thanks for stopping by--it's so good to see you all :)
We pick up where we left off: Alexia's boyfriend, Dan, is showing her some pictures of the apartment he found in Italy for them. It's not a permanent move--he's a graphic designer, and wants to get a Master's in Milan. Dan and Alexia have been dreaming of this a long time.
But these snapshots I held in my hand didn’t belong in the dream. The first picture was taken outdoors, a 70’s cookie-cutter-style block of apartment buildings painted a faded brown. Could be yellow—it was hard to tell under the city grime. The area looked like a modern suburb; no haughty architecture, no history crumbling in the corners. No, only chain-link fences, meager vegetation and overcast skies.
With a straight face I flipped to the next one, the interior of the apartment.
I do apologize--six sentences wasn't enough to show the inside. Next week!
