In college she will live in a double dorm room and share cigarettes with her roommate and order pizza when she comes back from the library late at night and she will be drilled on German grammar in a third-floor classroom: can you tell me the price of a room with a bath, and, what time does the train gets to Aachen? Late in the night in her double dorm room desk Laura will read Rhineland legends from a second-hand text, with coffee, a full ashtray, her roommate asleep towards the wall. She cannot wait, Laura will say, to leave the country. She will say she will never come back.
