Meet Mel from the last floor

Sofia/Elena/Eva and, well let's call her Mel probably live in the last floor, probably without an elevator. Surely it is soooo cool for them to live in the center next to the Bar and in front there is this cute museum (*maybe we should go there on day?*). I feel that Eva has dark hair and Mel, well, let's say she is blond and actually studied Literature but now she came to Florence to forget about George who left her right after he finished his Ph.D. He knew this new girl already some time but he was just too busy to sort things out before S. Valentines. Maybe she is returning to her studies in fall but maybe she will stay in Italy forever and will be another foreigner in this city saying

'I came here some years ago

and what will be tomorrow I don't know'.

Lee is one of them, but totally annoyed of the girls above him. They come home late every night and they slam the doors, they have no respect because they are always half drunken and tomorrow he will go to talk with the owner of this apartment about this. Lee thinks that in Florence there are too much strangers now, they just disturb the charm the city had, when he came.


I have no idea what the 'Lfin Society' is, but having a bellsign in this way.. I have some certain thoughts.

    I never met any German whose last name was "Italienisch", not fair!
    The doorbells in Florence have a lot of stories to tell, for sure.

    Somehow embarrassing to meet someone who actually lives there, after all the stories I made up... ;-D
  • chelseagirl 7y

    crazy! You mean in that top floor with the unmarked buzzer- or, you met the real "Mel"?
  • Beelama 7y

    On top on the left, there was this paper with for names, the last one is not really readable, so I called her "Mel" and everything else I made up. I never met anyone in this house.
