Echoes of the moon

… this was like one of those real dreams which remain vivid and rich

in details even when the eyelids are open. Now everything was crystal-clear, finally for Angela and Marco this great shared wish would come true. Marco is 34 years old, tall and thin, with fuzzy black hair, blue eyes and a well-tended goatee revealing tidiness and a taste for aesthet­ics. He’s very fond of his bike, his favorite means of transport which takes him everywhere. Angela is 31, with copper-colored hair, beautiful green eyes, alabaster skin and still a perfect body that reminds her of the frantic days she spent working in the most beautiful cities in the world when designers and artists used to contend her as a model.

They make a perfect couple, rich in life and harmony, who love to share emotions and moments with friends and relatives but capable of great intimacy.

They always support and encourage each other, solid and light like the life that crosses them. The big day had come, everything was ready. Marco had taken a half-day leave from the office where he worked as a copywriter. He had told Sofia, his superior, that he needed a few hours to settle a family affair. He did not want to go into the details, because he thought it might be bad luck. He looked quiet, but inside his stomach was tangled and thrilled with emotions. Angela was ready for the appointment, had taken a day off and had arranged everything for her friend and employee Karima to take care of her travel agency. She could not remain calm and a strange ex­citement stirred her. Then, to avoid a possible disappointment, her grandmother’s words carne to her mind: “Angela … ” she said, caressing her wet tears, ” … don’t cry, I’m sure that if you keep trying you will be able to do flips better than all your friends. ” Since then, those words have been locked in her, and over time they have become the support to cling to whenever she has to make difficult choices or important decisions: “You just have to insist and try again!” She used to say to her. So, wearing her favorite outfit, she took Marco’s bike and went to the ump­teenth appointment. She got there a few minutes early … Marco was already waiting for her. The meeting did not last long and, having completed the bureaucratic formalities (the red tape), the employee dismissed them in haste.

They had both been insisting for a long time and now, after some failure, they would finally get the help they needed to put on their dream home … simple, sophisticated, cozy but clean lines, a home where everything would find their place.

How many times wandering in the moonlight in the park, they had both fantasized about the house, or rather the loft they would buy. They were so meticulous about the details that at times it seemed as if their future nest was already real and that they were simply describing it. It hap­pened there, during those walks; it all began to take shape … with the moon looking at them. It certainly would mirror their personality; both Angela and Marco loved to surround themselves with beautiful, essential things, not just functional but also emotional. Memories that they had chosen to perpetuate or simply cuddle because they reminded them of people or situations they loved.

For example, the wrought iron chair which had belonged to grandmother Irma, the corridor floor that took them back to endless walks in the evening park (with the moonlight shining above them) or the reading area where Marco is always fascinated by the books that Angela takes him from her travels.

A life to build, happy … with the moon looking at them.
