Kerstin and Juliette decide to leave Marienhof and move to France.

Monday, May 17, 2010 (3818)

Juliette tries to convince Kerstin to move to France with her so they can make a fresh start, but Kerstin isn’t very open to the idea. She tells Juliette that she came to Marienhof to build up a new life and a new business there and that she cannot just give it all up again.

Juliette is disappointed and a little angry. She asks Kerstin whether she ever thought about her and where she fits into this life at Marienhof. Kerstin replies that she in fact did and hands Juliette the contract she had drafted to make Juliette her business partner.

The next morning, Sülo comes to Back Dat to get a cup of coffee. He and Kerstin talk about what’s going on in their lives, and he tells her that he is happy with his life as it is, with all the ups and downs he had to go through, and that he learned a valuable lesson, which is that very often the prospects that at first look the least promising are actually the best. Kerstin starts to look pensive when she hears him say that.

After Sülo has left, Kerstin looks up the village in France in which the patisserie of Juliette’s uncle is located on the internet. She is interrupted by Juliette, who asks her to come back to the bakery to help with the customers. When Juliette wants to know what Kerstin is doing on the computer, Kerstin tells her that it wasn’t anything important. Juliette looks skeptical, but then returns to the bakery with Kerstin.

While she and Kerstin are taking care of their customers, Juliette overhears a conversation between Kerstin and Inge, a customer and friend of Kerstin, who praises the delicious pastries that Kerstin is selling and says that it’s great to have Kerstin at Marienhof, and not just because of her pastries. After Inge has left, Juliette and Kerstin throw a meaningful glance at each other.

Later, Kerstin is clearing the tables outside Back Dat when the new nameplate that she mounted next to the door the day before catches her eye. She gets a screwdriver to demout it again, and while she is doing that, she has to think of Juliette.

Meanwhile, Juliette is in the kitchen to make chocolates when she suddenly has to think of the first time she and Kerstin made chocolates together, and about the first time they made love.

When Kerstin returns to the apartment, Juliette tells her that she cannot expect Kerstin to just leave her life behind to move to France with her, that it was a bad idea and that Kerstin should forget about it.

Kerstin smiles, then asks Juliette where they are going to live in France. While it slowly dawns on Juliette what Kerstin is implying, Kerstin says that her life at Marienhof in fact means a lot to her, but that Juliette means a lot more to her. Then she tells Juliette that she will move to France with her. Juliette is overjoyed, and they seal the deal with a kiss.

Juliette and Kerstin tell Heidi that they are going to leave Marienhof to move to France together. Heidi of course isn’t too happy about it, but then Kerstin tells her that she wants Heidi to take over Back Dat. Heidi is thrilled, until she realizes that she cannot afford the compensation for furniture and equipment.

At Daily’s, Kerstin tells Raul that she and Juliette are leaving Marienhof to live in France. When she says that Heidi would love to take over the bakery but cannot afford the compensation, Raul suggests that Heidi could pay by installments. Kerstin makes this suggestion to Heidi, who is overjoyed.

But later, when Heidi returns to the bakery, she hears Juliette say that Kerstin cannot afford to let Heidi pay by installments as they need the money for their fresh start in France.
