The story of Stella – The Mystery


Stella has 13-year-old identical twins. For a long time it was not easy to tell the boys apart. It was only recently that it became obvious from their appearance and the way they dress that although they look almost identical, their characters are very different. Stella is married to David and he is a scientist who fulfils all the stereotypes of scientists. On top of that, David is mildly autistic. If he hadn’t had Stella, he would probably have starved to death. When he is researching, he forgets the whole world around him and hunger as a feeling disappears by itself after a few hours.

Stella hat 13-jährige eineiige Zwillinge. Es war eine lange Zeit nicht einfach die Jungs auseinander zu halten.

Stella ist mit David verheiratet und er ist ein Wissenschaftler, der alle Stereotypen der Wissenschaftler erfüllt. Dazu noch ist David ein leichter Autist. Hätte er Stella nicht gehabt, wäre er wahrscheinlich verhungert. Wenn er forscht vergiss er nämlich die ganze Welt um sich und Hunger als Gefühl verschwindet von selbst nach ein paar Stunden.

An organised crime


In times of Corona, the little things of the past have become the big desires of the present. I don’t dream of visiting the Great Wall of China, but of being able to sit in a caffè and drink a latte macchiato. The fact that I can drink the same latte macchiato at home doesn’t diminish the longing one bit. On the contrary, it makes it grow every day. I try to remember the last time I ate out and realise that it was last year. The desires become smaller but their fulfilment more difficult, or even almost hopeless.
