“When does the event start?” Ambra asked me.

Let me check. I pulled out my iPhone and held down the button on the bottom.

“When is the Poker Tournament in Innsbruck, Austria?” “Checking,” Siri responded. She paused for a moment. “Okay, here’s what I found.”

I scanned through the news feed.

“It starts tomorrow,” I said. She smiled. “Perfect. I’ll grab my things.”

It’s easy to feel at home in an apartment like this. Our two-story penthouse was bursting with so much light that even a cold, damp winter day was inspiring.
