    Fiction

    It’s a hot afternoon. Serena is helping Christopher to study German. He is bored and prefers to record her with his cell phone. She doesn’t want him to but he likes it because she makes him laugh, especially when Serena acts like a little pig. And when Christopher laughs she is happy. Through this game, the two grow closer and discover an unexpected intimacy.
