“I want to finish this… This is my plan! Do you understand?”

He turned his back on her and disappeared in his house… anger… pain… frustration… you could have felt them in the deafening sound made by the door and all the windows of the house he closed behind him… dust was floating in the air and in the strange light of that hot summer afternoon… it was almost impossible to breath… everything around was dry and dusty…

“Water”! This was her first thought after he closed the door… she needed water… she wanted to call him to come back, but her mouth and throat were so dry that only by trying to say something, her lips started to bleed… the pain was spreading in her veins, in her entire body like a virus with the speed of the light, burning her deep into her chest…  she wanted to run, but her legs were trembling… she looked terrified around to see somebody to help her not to fall… cause she was falling… deep down in this hole he just made to hide her and never see her face again… so he cannot remember she ever existed… that he ever wanted her… touched her… kissed her… melted inside of her…

She touched the door with her right hand and she felt an awful burn going deep down in her skin…

“Open the door! Please listen to me! Open the door! For God sake, open the God damn door!!”

She started to cry feeling the awful taste of rejection and desperation! She has never felt so desperate before! She fell down on her knees, too weak just to walk away, while tears were drawing small rivers on her dusty face, burned by the sun…

“I am begging you… open the door! Please forgive me… I have to do this… please try to understand…”

Silence and an unbearable heat coming from the tongues of fire which were covering slowly the entire house and were rising to the sky… she laid down on the ground, feeling extremely tired… her car was few meters away…. she smiled like a freak thinking that she could take the car and save herself, but looking back at the burning house she decided to stay… she couldn’t go… too weak for that… so she started to crawl around the house, to find the back door or another way to get in… deep wounds were bleeding on her entire body, but she felt no pain anymore… like a mad, she just wanted to get in…

More she was trying, more wounded she got… with her last powers she tried to push the back door feeling the fire deep down in her bones… and then it happened! All the walls of the house smashed, and she saw him looking at her, letting his eyes to speak in his behalf about the bitter- sweet soul cocktail he had prepared for her with hate, pain, anger, frustration, disappointment, sadness… and love

She was surprised wondering how come she never saw it before. By the time she was trying to understand that, he looked into her childish eyes one more time, and left his head down… huge blocks of ice came out from the ground, surrounding him and all the fire turned then into a small scented candle, bringing a little bit of light in his new ice house.

She smiled…

“You’ll get there, Stranger! I know you will… ” she said to herself and feeling extremely tired and exhausted, she just closed her eyes and left her head on the ground…

It was almost morning when she woke up… the stars were sparkling still on the dark blue sky and the wind was touching her muddy face when suddenly she became aware of the pain she was feeling in her entire body. An occur need for chocolate woke here senses up… she looked at her dirty hands and legs covered with dark bloody wounds and she started to laugh… at the beginning in silence, but then louder and louder until crystal tears came out of her big brown eyes…. This time of happiness… She felt so alive!!

She stood like this for couple of hours, looking around her and feeling grateful to have survived… the sun was about to come up when she felt a little bit chill, so she decided to go… she went at her car, fastened her belt, checked her face in the mirror, looked one more time at the ice house, smiled like a child and turned the radio on…

She started to drive slowly, admiring the view from that fresh summer morning, and the life around her: wild green grass, a rainbow of flowers, trees hugging the sky, birds dancing together, rabbits hiding quickly here and there, and horses running free… suddenly she felt how her soul filled with love for everything around her… at some point, on her way to her new life, she stopped the music and she listened with her breath taken the sound of the wheels of the car…. she smiled and she whispered: “He was right!! They sound better now!”
