Based on Frauleïn O.: Das Au-Pair a confession by
From the XConfessions series: The unbearable August Spanish heat... who wouldn't be seduced by the local boy with a bucket full of ice!August in a remote Spanish village, in the middle of a wine region. It's the hottest time of the year. A beautiful blonde au-pair is teaching German to some kids during the summer and takes advantage of the siesta hours to study Spanish herself. Yet siesta is such a voluptuous time of the day, especially if one of the locals has the habit of paying a visit with a bucket full of ice to refresh you...
It is my time to confess that I needed a little help to understand the story on how you learnt Spanish being an Au-Pair at the wine region of La Rioja. Once I succeeded, though, I was totally captivated by the atmosphere you describe so accurately. The heat, the siesta, the ice, the young secret lover: perfect ingredients for one of the shorts in the brightest volume of XConfessions - number 3!
