A new lifeChapter 6, back to L.A.:A new life by Gabriele0698
Lisa and Maggie came back home in L.A.
When Lisa opened the door, both of them literally threw their bags next to that door and dipped on the bed, they were devastated.
The next day Maggie restarted working, luckily her turn was from the opening to lunchtime, her intention was to subside in a deep coma, long until the successive morning.
She worked in silence for all the morning, something very unusual, so much that at certain point Angelo came up to her and asked:- Maggie, what's wrong-a? I know that coming-a back after a long-a vacation is never-a easy-
Maggie, with a low and tired voice told him:- it's not because of that.
Days I spent home during the vacation would have been even nice, but my grandpa died, I was fond of him a lot.
This made me live a nightmare long days, which still continues.
I'm just tired for that.-
-I know it-a won't mean so much-a for you, but I'll tell-a you that anyway: condolences-
Last laconic Maggie's answer was:- thanks.
A new lifeChapter 5, Merry Christmas!:A new life by Gabriele0698
It was past some months since when Lisa and Maggie first came to L.A.
In this period Lisa better knew Javier, and now he was her only friend.
In the meantime, especially thank to work, her exhibitions, and her ability to socialize, Maggie knew a lot of people.
The biggest difference between Lisa and Maggie is in how much they socialize, in fact Lisa, as we know, is a very introvert and sensible person, while Maggie usually likes knowing a lot of guys.
Maggie wasn't superficial, but her problem was that she could not stand being alone.
A Sunday of November, Lisa was wandering on the internet, when she saw a call from her mother.
Lisa answered, Marge said, in the video call, kilometers far from her daughter:- Lisa!
Why haven't you been calling for days?-
It's because I've been busy.
How's it going there?-
I called you, because I want to invite you and Maggie here, for Christmas.
Do you come?-
-I don't know mom.

Chapter 4, back to music:
It was Sunday.
Lisa and Maggie slept until about eleven, the first because of the bore she had at work and at home, she past the night alone, and the second because of a tiring Saturday, where she worked until about two am of Sunday.
When they were having a brunch, Lisa said:- you know Maggie?
Yesterday, at work, I knew a guy who seems pretty nice, he has also left me this-
-a business card?-
He said that if I wanted to call him again, I can use this-
-how is he? Don't miss any detail-
-for the few minutes of conversation we had, he seemed one of the smartest person I've ever met.-
Maggie, winking, replied:-is he free? You should seize the moment!-
-oh come on! I don't want that kind of relationship!
I only want to know some other people I can talk to-
-if you say so.
You know that I would seize the first guy I have available!
I'll use an Italian expression that Angelo has taught me: chi ha il pane non ha i denti.
It means, more or less, that
A new lifeChapter 3, a new knowledge:A new life by Gabriele0698
It was past about a week, since when Maggie started working.
Lisa and Maggie passed their first two weeks in L.A.
Lisa found her job quite rapidly, she settled a bit, even because she was tired of her old life, while Maggie found her job very rapidly, because of a combination of events: not only L.A., but the US in general, were passing a nice period, where finding a job was easier than usual, plus her employer was looking for some staff urgently, and Maggie looked for jobs which didn't request any precise competence.
All these factors together made Maggie find a job within only a week, or less.
This day of two weeks later, Lisa went working, while the morning was full of commitments, and very tiring, usually, the afternoon was completely free, in fact at a certain point Lisa said to herself:- to the hell, you can stay here and die of bore, but I don't want to stay here a minute more-
So Lisa raised up, and went to a bar, next to the hospital, there she orde
