‘Have you read it?’

He did, but he kept in silence. What could he say? He preferred classic stories, not a strange novel where you cannot find the way of reading. It was raining and he hated the rain. Both were smoking cigarettes, both were nervous, both sill kept silent.

‘I know, Michael. It’s a strange work…’ Alex continued. ‘I tried to do something different, something doesn’t enforce the hard literary rules.’

Old Michael thought different, but he didn’t want to hurt his feelings. In the novel, characters weren’t clear and the plot was between complicated and bizarre. It was not the novel the country was waiting… in addition to this, the language was very old, with questionable expressions… no registry changes… who would like to read this type of book?

‘Have you tried to publish it in Europe?’ Old Michael said. ‘Maybe it would be easy in the old continent, my friend. Your work sounds like avant-garde, like a book written in the 20’s. You know, Paris and characters that change their essences in every chapter… It’s not an American book. In Europe everything is different; you can choose other ways and other types of art…’

Old Michael sounded paternalistic, fake and insidious. Alex looked around the bar and its clients and he felt his solitude. Years later, he would remember this scene.

He couldn’t know why.

J.F.K. Airport. Flight to Frankfurt. On board

Why he said ‘yes’? He might have learnt the most important lesson of life before he had gone: negation.

‘Please, don’t be nervous, doctor Mirror.’ She said quietly. ‘We know who are you and we know everything about you.’ Sentences always sounded to him like the shame of guilty. He wished he haven’t read the book. Have you ever feel the handicap to change your own words. He used to lie, that was his work… but he was ashamed with this so beautiful blonde girl. Who was she? She smiled to him. ‘It’s a work designed for you, John. May I call you John, doctor?’ In that moment, he would like to say the truth. Sometimes to be quiet is the same as a lie. Would she like liars? She probably didn’t, she probably did. ‘We will be together for, at least, seven hours. It will be nice to know each other, won’t it?’ Lies, lies and lies. I’m a little tired… I’m a little ashamed… I’m a great liar, my sweet girl.

‘My name is Lorraine.’ she began. ‘Someone talked about you and I appreciate Michael. He was who recommended you for this work.’

‘Michael? Are you talking about Old Michael?’ He tried to say… but he kept on silent.

‘The book seller, yes. He talked about you years ago, John.’ She insisted on calling me John. She insisted on calling me liar.

What was I doing there? Who the hell was that girl? She smiled again and again and my guilty went from my heart to my stomach. Who was I?

‘Do you want a drink, Alex?’

Alex, Alex, Alex. She knew it.

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
