Sophia leafs through my flipbooks. One of them is Woman on a Barstool.
I can see that she is fascinated. I pluck up all my courage and ask
her. She says that she takes my request as a compliment but needs time
to think. She is aiming for a career in politics, a photo like that
might not exactly help. Later that evening she sends me a text message.
“Hello Volker, in case you still want to make a flipbook of me, we can
do it. Goodnight, Sophia.”
