Coming back home?

Coming back home?

Statue of Liberty

Statue of Liberty

New York. 1995. Summer

His literary works were fine, but Alex would still need at least one more year to finish them. The year at the University was good, good marks and, of course, Jack’s company. When he was about to return to New York, Lorraine asked him to take care of the dog during the summer. He smiled again and looked at the Labrador. Have we got any option, mate? He asked the favor to his father: two first class tickets with no questions about his mate. He would miss Lorraine badly, of course, but, who does not want to go home in summer? He has his suitcase plenty of words and illusion. Flu Project was, in a matter of fact, a metamorphose project that talked about the finest line that divides reality, fiction and literature… or, at least, that was he thought.

Jack barked twice when he saw the Statue of Liberty.

‘Good dog.’ Alex said. ‘We are home.’

When they both left the plane, one of his father’s men was waiting for them. That usually meant that his father was not in the city. Great news! He would invest all of the summer trying to finish his work.

New York. 2012. Winter

‘Basically, the idea was not to transform one person into another. How can I explain it? The idea is how a person can convert into another. In old texts, you can get this by drinking the blood of the other person… in other words, taking his soul’.

‘Was that the theme of the book?’

Lorraine turns back and continues smoking. How many cigarettes have you smoked yet? As she can read my mind, she looks at me and smiles and answers.

‘Do you think I can die smoking? Death is the stranger event in our whole life. Why not imagine death as our lover? Doing it, we would try to prolong their days, giving them a small breath… Everything is in our dreams, John.’

‘Have you got children, Lorraine?’

Paris, about 15 years before

She came Alex’ attic involved on tears, so dismayed than she could hardly breathe. Jack tried to console her, but she moved him away. After half an hour, she began to be calmed at last.

‘I don’t want to have it, Alex’. She finally said. Alex suspected it weeks ago. ‘François is happy, I know. I cannot do it to him… but I must do it for me, Alex. What might I do? I am young; might I lose all in my life? Might I destroy everything I want?’

Alex stood up and listened to her. It was the first time he saw Lorraine without her mask. Then, he could see Lorraine using all her weapons.

‘I’ve thought it tens of times. Why can I be with a boy like you? Can you help me, Alex?’

Suddenly, he got the idea and smiled: the flu will produce a new living being inside, a new creature.

‘Our relationship is broken, Alex. You know?’ And she false caressed his face, his false and fake face.

The creature would grow for eight days. After that… the deepest dream.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
