Arollo Stories – Alena Episode 8/10 – Here the Link to Episode 7/10
It’s astonishing: Year after year, you’re living your everyday life; working, taking care of the kids, sometimes – not often enough, I have to admit – also of the relationship, but you’re barely taking care of yourself. Not really, at least. You’re taking care of your career and your money, of the apartment, every now and then you party, but you hardly ever get down to your inner core. And then, overnight, it strikes you like a lightning.
Like it struck me when Miss Just entered my office. Without having to say a word, she made me realize what lights a fire in me. Since then, I’m torn. I’m ashamed to tell Alena. At the same time, I know that I won’t be able to avoid it. Because every other way would be a dead-end road.

“Do you still need me?”, Miss Just is asking, when she suddenly appears in the door.
I didn’t notice her. I look up. As always, I quickly glance at her legs. “No, thank you”, I’m saying.
She smiles like she would know exactly what I’m doing on my computer right now. She then walks away, leaving the door open. I look after her. Her walk is like one of models, even in those half-high shoes she is wearing today. I imagine her in the Overknee Boots. Then I click……
