It was Christmas Eve again; it's their 'day'. After an hour drive from Cologne, Chris finally reached the Schwarzwaldstube. It's cold out there and she was late, like always. She walked as fast as she could into the restaurant and straight forward to an old man who was sitting alone apart from the crown. He is a Caucasian, late seventies, wearing a black spectacles with a casual clothes. He is a professor of English Literature in 15th century until 17th century; he works in her favorite university, University of Cambridge. He is waiting for her, given the proof that his eyes were starring the entrance ever since he sat down. He rise and pull the chair for her. After they have settled down, the manger came with their usual branded-wine and a Black Forest cake.

My grandmother was a cardiac surgeon, one of the top of the world, before her hands became shaky and her eyes were not clear. Now she was just a retired Medicine professor. My grandfather is very famous in his area, because not many one could be a professor at his late twenties, although he was not active this few years. They met each other when my grandmother attended her best friend's wedding at Germany.

That day, she was so tired. She wanted to miss it, but apparently her best friend would kill her if she does. So she had to get to there even after a 36-hours on-call and she swore to God that she would leave there just after she has made her attendance on the list. That was where and when she met my grandfather. My grandfather was the best man. They did not start romantically as my grandfather had accidentally left his wine on my grandmother's dress.
