“Soooo… here we are again!”
The girl looked with happy, childish eyes at her long time ago friend… she was whispering, she didn’t know why, but she felt like whispering… strange, magical words came out of her mouth like a pray: “An eisai ena asteri”
A short moment of silence… she couldn’t believe her eyes… it finally happened… before she could have answered to his question, he continued:
“Wow! That was an evening with a lot of emotions, wasn’t it?”
She looked at his mouth and then into his blue, beautiful eyes…flash backs of everything of what just happened that night were invading her heart like a burning water flow forcing the walls of the castle she carefully built since she has been left alone like an orphan child, in the middle of a dirty street, in a cold day of winter… bricks from her wall were splashing heavy and melting into the burning water….the strange warmth she felt all of the sudden in her chest took her by surprise and she could not help thinking how kissing him felt so natural… so grounded… sun, moon, rising, water, air, earth and fire, God and angels in the same place… right there, in his kiss, in his arms, in his kind, beautiful look. He created all that! With his very first touch of his sweet lips she knew he will make it happen. What a beautiful moment! What an amazing energy, the way she surrendered into his arms as if she belonged to him right from the very start of their friendship…driving her on his motorbike, like two beautiful lovers who would share a secret love together, holding him tight, trusting him in those vulnerable moments, in that warm night of a late summer, those buildings, those lights, him touching her knees with tenderness and care, checking if she was cold….everything was absolutely perfect… he was perfect.
With her mind blown away, her body confused by his kisses and touches, and barely controlling the fire from her heart she said:
“Yes… it was!”
Without realizing, she touched one of the piano notes while she said that…it sounded like the end of a theater act, as if the Universe would have pointed out that the moment was gone, but it just became one of the sweetest memories ever.
“And what are you going to do?” he asked her while looking deep into her eyes as if he wanted her to confirm to him that she will fight, she will take them both further, somewhere far away from their reality, somewhere where they could forget about this world.
His question was refreshing and realistic… with a soft move, she pulled him a bit away, trying to breathe normal again, but she could have felt how the blood was rushing into her heart, pumping it with thousands beats each second he would have tried to still come closer, as if he didn’t want to let her go or something…
“The Universe is magical… I’m sure that the right person will come along…I’m ready!” she said with a soft voice, trying to cover the sound of her thoughts: why did everything feel so right? So damn familiar… so natural? Was it possible? Could it have been possible…?
She didn’t get to finish that question in her head because he touched her shoulders with the palm of his hands and she felt weak all of the sudden… she couldn’t talk further…but then he said:
“It’s late. I have to go!”
She smiled at him… for the first time she wasn’t sad that he will go…the peace she found in his arms that night was somehow protecting her heart from this early, but inevitable Goodbye! of his.
“Yes! Go! Life is a journey! It’s alright!”
The door closed behind him…she smiled happy, made a twirl in her living room, then she went and opened the door of the balcony, watching him on his motorbike, vanishing in the dark of the night…the night was still young…the air was refreshing, but still warm…a tiny, little star was shining strong on the clear, dark blue sky… she loved that city…she loved the secrets it seemed to hide in it, each time the sun would go down…
She loved him!
