He rushed through the streets, turned into the Rue de Berri  and I remembered our wedding night in the Hotel California ten years ago. I followed him, carefully, like a shadow, and finally he entered one of the beautiful ancient Parisian houses. I crossed the street and slowly opened the heavy door of the building, slipped into and saw the elevator disappearing up. The display showed it stopped on the third floor.  “Cherie, enfin..” the rest of the sentence was swallowed by the metallic noise of the closing grate. I quietly crept the stairs up to the third floor and pushed the doorbell.

  1. Nothing good is going to come of this and what a sad way for a marriage to end! Just a couple small things–„Hotel“ would be captitalized and italicized along with „California“ as it’s part of the name. And here, „one of this beautiful ancient“, rather than „this“ you might want „the.“ Good job with this story, Carmen. You’ve got me wanting to go to Paris. 🙂

  2. Dear Carmen,

    Busted! Sad contrast between remembering their wedding night and then finding he’s cheating. And now the Eagles song Hotel California is ringing in my ears. 😉
    Nice to see you back here and with a good story.
