Paula Eisenbach feels relieved today. Yesterday, she told her friend, Tom Sanders, that she had decided not to go the California with him during die Christmas holidays. Tom was very upset and they had a long argument. Finally, Paula had to tell him the truth. She told him that she enjoyed working with him and that she had learned a lot. Then she told him that she wasn’t ready to have a deeper relationship. Tom got angry and told her that he didn’t want her to help him anymore with the Disney drawings. Paula knew he would react that way. She had been helping him for almost two months and she was becoming more and more convinced that Tom wasn’t a stable person. He was a brilliant artist but he was very introverted. He didn’t know how to respond to people in a natural way. Last night, Paula called her parents in Munich and told them her decision. Her mother was relieved and her father told her that she had made the right decision. They told her they were thinking about spending a week in the Canary Islands during the Christmas holidays and asked her if she would like to go. Paula jumped at the opportunity. She was tired of the cold weather in Heidelberg. A few days in the Canary Islands would be the perfect remedy.
