‘We have to do it, John.’ Lorraine says.

I know what she is talking about; I know her now. Finally, my organism accepted it and the creature is now calmed. Sometimes, I can see it in my dreams. I imagine its face and his legs but I know it has no defined form, or maybe it has… or maybe it is the creation of my guilty past soul. Why he didn’t help her? Love, or whatever it was, is a strange thing.

‘Doctors are coming,’ Lorraine says. ‘You must be prepared.’

‘Did he love her?’ I ask.

‘It is always a difficult question, my doctor. Do mothers love their children or it is just their duty? I remember the child growing. I used to imagine him as you imagine now the creature growing inside you. I felt him part of me but, anyway, I did.’

‘She did.’ I interrupt.

‘I remember my guilty, I remember me as a mother, taking care of my son. I remember me when he was ten and when he was five. Is it real? I did it, John.’

‘We did it.’

Someone knocks at the door. Wait, my son. Are you ready to born? I feel it now again, I feel our son, Lorraine.

Dear Alex:

Since it happened, you are on my mind. I look François’ photo y can’t feel anything. I think I was wrong but I must say I didn’t know you.

Gregory was a distant father with Alex. Does it matter?

‘I leave, father.’ He said in the threating presence of his father.

I hope you meet your father. I trust on you and I think you can do anything you want. I know last times you become immersed in your work. I think it will be the best novel in the History. I believe in you, Alex.

His father looked at him and kept on silent, always sure of his options as the great man he was.

‘Are you sure, Alex?’ He asked.

Can you imagine what we can do together? I know I was wrong.

‘I am sure, father.’

Alex. Please, forgive me and forgive me for my blindness, for the time I lost, for the time we are losing now. I miss you so much.

‘In that case, you will came back here and I give you a job in the company.’

Alex. I am counting the days to see you, to meet you again in Paris.

‘I don’t want to come back to Paris, father.’

Come back, come back, Alex. You are the only person who I can see in the future; you are the only one I dream of.

‘Do you know that the decision you’ve token is one decision for the rest of your life?’

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
