Has been lightning and something made you stop without say nothing. You had only staring me. At the begining, as usual, i was about to react, but more you was looking at me, i more blush, as if you glance was able to make came out my weakness and i wasnt able no more to react. It was the first time that i saw you in the tavern, and as if you was able to read my mind, you have replied ‘I come from far, and this village it’s the first that i’ve met. I have rent a room in that inn in front’.
I didnt have still spoken, but i was hearing you, with my head down.
I knew you was staring me, and i wanted hid some little scars on my face.
My heart was beating strong, while you was trying to catch my attention toward you.
‘Why that guy has called you witch?’ you asked.
‘Johnas is a stupid guy. He’s great big but he’s only able to beat the iron and he say many stupid things, above all when he drunk’. I have replied you always with my head toward the table, but i knew your eyes were well set on me. Then i continued.
‘Since i reacted to a provocation and i had thrown the person who had provocated me, against a wall, without touching him, i was always be watched with fear by the others inhabitants of the village, but when i come in the tavern, the owner keeping me always a free table, just at a one condition. I can eat, pay and leave.
It’s always the same table, against the wall at the opposite of the entrance.’
And you was the first person, after that incident, who had wanted sit at this table and now that you had know that story, you didnt seemed scared. You seemed more soften.
At the end, i lifted up my face. You was still here. Your eyes were smiling at me and i was holding back the breathe.
Nobody stopped at my table for long time. The only one who was stopping, was the fat owner with greasy apron who was take me the dish each evening i was enter in the tavern.
In your gaze there was an infinite tenderness, and i didnt understand what was attract me of you.
I was ending my dinner and you was still looking at me, I was still blushing, bringing the spoon to my mouth. They were the last spoonfuls and i have called the owner for pay and leave. When the big and fat owner has came, i was about to take the few money for pay the service but you have anticipated me and you have paid it for me. I have down my head and my heart has started again to beat strong. The owner has left us alone, looking at you very strange. I could feel his thoughts and they were only warnings to stay away from me.
Suddenly i lifted up my face toward him and our glances meeting. He looked at me and he ran away scared. You have saw the entire scene, then you have looked at me.
Shyly i thanked you and you have smiled me.
I wanted just go away. I got up and as much as faster as i could i left the tavern.
I have left you there inside stunned. While i was about open the door of the tavern, you have screamed ‘Wait!’ and you have reached me.
Our eyes didnt wanted break away one from another.
Around there was a mystical aura. We had walked, one close another, trought the street dimly lit. Little by little our bodies touched. We were about to reached my house. The only house along the street, well illuminated.
When we arrived under the lamp of the house, you have spin my back against the wall of the house, and for a second we looked at eachother and sweetly your lips were approaching to mine and slowly and delicately we kissed.”
