Paula Eisenbach has just settled back into her flat in Heidelberg. She’s been away for three weeks during the Christmas break from the university. She spent two weeks in the Canary Islands with her parents and one week at her home in Munich. As she was driving up to Heidelberg from Munich, She kept thinking about Tom Sanders, the American boy she had worked with on the Disney drawings. She had turned down an invitation of his to visit California and since then, she had seen him following her around the university campus. She had been glad to get away from Heidelberg for the Christmas holidays, but when she got back last night, she was worried, wondering if he would start following her again. However, when she got to the flat, the first thing her flatmates told her was that Tom Sanders was in jail. The police had caught him looking in the windows at one of the girl’s dormitories next to the Heidelberg campus. Paula’s flatmates went on to tell her that Tom’s picture had appeared, with an article, on the front page of the Heidelberg newspaper. When the police took him in, they contacted the U.S. consulate and learned that Tom Sanders had a criminal record in California. He had been arrested several times for harassing female students at San Diego State University. He was considered dangerous. Paula couldn’t believe her ears. She had spent probably one hundred hours with Tom in his apartment. He seemed like such a nice boy at first, but later she began to see a few strange things in his character. It’s a good thing the Christmas break arrived in time. It’s a good thing too that the police had caught him because otherwise she might have had a bad experience.
