MY SUNDAY COMPANY
She loves the sea, but she has never seen one, I met her on a day the sun was having a great time. She is the kind of girl that only sees chocolate wraps but never tasted one; she has that kind of hair that knots from lack of combing.
You see! She told me something that stuck to my ear like leech. She said “this life isn’t happy but I am happy, I feel like I m being unfair to life. Most people say life is unfair, I think that is untrue, they do so many things with life, most often they own it, waste it and when their action backfires, life becomes the guilty one.” She tapped my knee and that brought me back from my reverie, this girl sees more than the trees ahead of us. I looked at her on the sand we both sat on, and it all seemed so perfect. She told me all she wanted from me was love! “Sweets and biscuits are like temporary happiness”
The way she uses her words amazes me, I found life in the heart of a girl. The way she throws stones at the lizard is so heartwarming that I start to wish I were a girl again.
Ashy, (like she calls me) “Mamie said I should try not to dream because it will give her night mares”, “darling,” I said; “she cannot afford the kinds of dreams you will have” she smiled and looked ahead.
I know not what she thought. What a company to keep on a Sunday afternoon. She is that type of girl that other girls think is dirty, weak and not fun. I love the friend I found in her, we talk and I love our talks.
