Dear Alex,

I’m sad, I’m terribly sad. Why haven’t you written me? It has passed four weeks and I haven’t heard from you. Are you angry with me? I must confess I spend much time thinking about you and about… you know… what happened.

Alex broke the letter and stroked Jack. Crazy stupid girl! All she will get is to destroy the novel with her ridiculous wails. Alex needed to be calmed because that evening he had to meet his father. He hoped all works fine. Anyway, he would have to write Lorraine asking for breaking their relationship. It’s ridiculous again! They had no relationship. She had a boyfriend and he had a character to display. Please, Lorraine, stop writing!

I spend the holidays with my parents. It’s so boring. We are in Italy visiting monument after monument… my mother loves them! I would like to be in Paris again. I miss you. How’s Jack? I’m happy for you both; I think Jack found the greatest owner he would get.

Alex’ novel was about to finish and he didn’t want to talk to Lorraine until his work was ended. The character was very different to real Lorraine. He imagined a sophisticated woman, the kind of woman a man couldn’t ever get. Every word of her, every letter, he looked down on Lorraine… so kind to decide anything, so stupid to think… so human. He preferred the distant elegance, the elaborated fake beauty of his fictional character to his real Lorraine. It is really difficult to prefer a real person to a character, the perfect definition in literature, the possibility of changing and the master seduction of words… Who really was Lorraine? Less than a muse, less than human! Since the deal, he had spent much time with Lorraine, night after night listening her, listening her stupid dreams and thinking. He knew, she just wanted to assure his silent… and he wanted a character. First he knew Lorraine as an angel, with her opened wings of kindness and beauty, then Lorraine became a mediocre human being. Did she deserve the honor?

Bye bye

Bye bye

‘Your father is here.’ A voice said behind him.

‘I will go in a minute.’ Alex answered.

He would remember that moment in his whole life, the moment he decided not to go back to Paris, the moment he decided to confront his father, the moment he decided to leave the University, the moment he decided to forget Lorraine and her dead child.

‘I’m ready.’ He said.

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
