Chapter one - The big screen
Just as I do every night, I take a seat on the bench, installing my laptop on my lap. A small glass of red wine rests on the small table in front of me, waiting for me to take a sip once in awhile. I put in my earplugs and turn up the volume, a big white screen follows. It doesn’t take too long for the web browser to start up, ready to show me the latest Hollywood Highlight news. Or, as we followers like to call it, HH. There’s nothing in the world that satisfies me more than fresh gossips about celebrities’ perfect lifes. It makes me forget about my very small apartment in the middle of Amsterdam, which appropriates tons of my way too low internship salary. Even if it’s just for a moment, the ‘big life’ does comfort me. As I scroll down the pages, scanning through the topics like a maniac, I feel a soft, warm creature pressing against my hand. Isn’t my dog is the sweetest thing in the world? Everyday, as I come home after a long day of hard work, this is how he greets me. Despite his old age, he manages to climb on the bench to share his warmth with me. I stroke him over his little head and take a short look in his big brown eyes. As they close, ready for a sleep which will take as long as I stay on the bench, my eyes meet the laptop screen again. There it is again, the new movie that’s coming soon, which was already way overhyped, even before the actor's names were announced. I don’t even know why I’m that interested in it, but ever since the first details about it were released, I stuck with it. The big announcement on top the page is very clear; 3 DAYS LEFT UNTIL GRAND PREMIERE.
