Finally I came up with something. Dave and Simone on holiday in Madrid.
Not that the background is needed but it's sometime in 1926 or 1927, they normally are found in Paris. Dave is a soldier turned writer (terrible soldier, evidentally a good writer. I think he's better than I am.) Simone is half Spanish and otherwise a bombshell of awesome. Back in the 20s particularly in europe getting married meant giving your man control of all your stuff and your life decisions. Simone things that sucks. Dave doesn't really want any of that, he's just a hopeless romantic.
All of the places described really do exist. If you look hard enough, you may even find them.mot juste
is the modernist concept of 'one word is the best and most appropriate word' for a thing.
and of course, it's Dave, so you know he totally made a Casque of Amontillado
Written (mostly) under a chestnut tree.

O please tell me there are no more typos. I think I got them all out but I'm having trouble proofreading today, so let me know if you see anything.
Does the story flow well enough and give you enough to go on without knowing the info in the artist's comment?
Anything that stands out as clunky or weird? It's a first draft so fire away.
