The Masked Girl

The Masked Girl

Paris. 15 years ago

‘The old dichotomy grows from outside and arrives to us clearly.’ François asked with empty rhetoric. ‘What is more important? I hate writers who want just to impress the reader with feelings and senses… They construct their books to shock the reader and, after two hours, you can forget the book.’

‘But books are written to call reader’s feelings, aren’t they?’ Lorraine asked.

‘Even the monkeys have feelings, dear!’ He answered with disdainful gesture. ‘One book cannot live without ideas. Books, novels… even paintings are creations of mind!’

Alex looked at Lorraine and her gesture made him sad. Why was she with him? Everyone could see how he looked down on her and how she turned her brilliant eyes on dark sadness. Alex really hated that stupid man, always trying to show the others his magnificent point of view in every case.

‘Don’t you feel bad?’ Alex asked Lorraine under the attentive sight of Jack.

‘François is a good boy, Alex. Do you feel jealous, Alex?’ Lorraine smiled and Alex felt ashamed (and yes, of course, he was jealous). Lorraine sat nearer Alex. He felt nervous. ‘What would you have done, Alex?’ And he got confused for a moment. ‘I mean… what would you have done if you were him, darling?’ The word ‘dear’ sounded like a hammer hitting on his head. ‘Someday, maybe I will say ‘’darling’ again, dear Alex.’

It was the first time he could imagine her as a character of his novel. Lorraine, cruel Lorraine.

He didn’t like Lorraine… Lorraine with her studied manners; Lorraine the girl who never was trustworthy; Lorraine the masked girl. He saw her for time in old Michael’s book shop but he couldn’t ever forget her. Who was she? She looked like a European girl but she had no English pronunciation; she talked like an old wise woman but she only looked twenty-five. The first time, he looked at her deep brown eyes and the second time he forgot them to look inside, to seek for the secret to find.

‘Has we met yet?’ He asked.

‘I don’t think so, doctor.’ She answered smiling. ‘I was quite sure I would remember it.’

He was sure she was lying. He would always sure she was lying.

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
