    Summary

    Bordeaux, so like Paris and yet so unlike any other place in the world in its narrow streets and soft-cornered architecture, casts romantic hues against his window, draping long, finger-like shadows through the length of his flat.

    He traces them with hooded eyes and thinks about impossible things: impossible people, impossible foods, impossible chefs and the impossible pleasure they get out of torturing innocent sommeliers.

    ***

    The one where Arthur's the new sommelier at a world-class French restaurant and Eames is the famous chef who makes Arthur's life impossible.

    Summary

    It's not that Arthur doesn't enjoy his boring job (because he does), and it's not that Arthur doesn't have hobbies (because he does), and it's not that Arthur doesn't experience a surprising number of romantic prospects cropping up (because he does); it's just that he's not happy for no reason, and he can't stop texting his tailor.
