I always have a story to tell. Characters live, walk, speak to me in my head everyday. So, here's one of a sad, little man and a lady who was curious, then disappointed and loves tea.
'You ask me about the man next door? Well - she put down her cup of tea -, he was… Okay, I can't really find the right words to describe him. I'm going to try but I'm not really sure it's possible.
He had dark hair, always wore it in the same style. Like a professor, you know, featureless and boring. He dressed like he was wanting to visit the nearest church but I can tell you, I had a feeling back then, he didn’t have any sins.
I was just looking at him silently sometimes when I was outside in our yard and when I first saw him, I felt like he must be an alien or something, you know.
He didn’t even notice me at first… - she grabbed her cup and stopped talking for a bit -, because he - she looked out of the kitchen window - he was talking to his plants.
I just couldn’t take my eyes off him, then we suddenly catched each other’s eyes. He looked like a doe and I was sure he thought I am a hunter. I wawed, he took a deep breath, smiled for only a second and then almost ran back to his house. Was he scared? Was he crazy? For God sake, he talked to his roses. Why?
His eyes were bright blue and his fingers long. Sometimes, while I was doing the dishes, I followed him with my eyes from the kitchen window. He couldn’t see me.
He touched those roses like they were some kind of little girls. Those calm, silent and cute type of little girls, you know, who always wear what their moms say to wear, who have to be in bed early and their dads are rich.
He even caressed the petals and gave them names. It was weird for me, I’m pretty conservative, I mean, I think he must had been in a better place, you know - she said quieter - in an asylum… maybe. Well, to be honest, I thought he couldn’t even hurt a fly. Then I saw the news and boom. I remember I even dropped my… - she drank a little from her tea - …cup. This is from the new set, not that broken one. This looks prettier, doesn’t it? With the flowers all around. Quite interesting, it has roses on it, huh?’
