My fair story


¡No podía ser! Estaba perdida. Yo allí sola. Sin nadie que conociera. Sin trabajo. Me acaban de echar del trabajo. Me había buscado un trabajillo en el Topshop de Oxford St. y va y cierran. ¿Quién se imaginaba que fueran a cerrar ese pedazo de Topshop? Nadie. Pero no... tenía que pasar! me lanzo a la aventura y se chafa todo. Encendí el último cigarrillo que me quedaba ( no iba a volver a comprar tabaco, no me lo poda permitir) Me senté llorando de desesperación en el suelo de mi querido Covent Garden. Siempre lloviendo como yo me lo imaginé. Londres me había jugado una mala pasada.
- Hi! What's the matter?
- Oh! nothing thanks...
Un joven ingles rubito de pelo rizado y con ojillos azules se me acercó.
- I'm lost, lost in London. That's all, but thanks.
- Lost in London!?!
- I mean, I've been fired. I'm Spanish and I have nobody here, so I say I'm lost.
- Ouch! I'm Paul, nice to meet you. Can I sit with you?
- Yeah, of course!
- Your name is...
- Inés, sorry.
- Ok, and.. What will you do?
-I don't know. I thought looking for pubs to see if they need a waitress or something.
- Yes, not a bad idea. I know one just over there that's fine. I don't know if they need a waitrees but... to dinner is perfect!
- Are you inviting me to dinner tonight?
- Tonight is perfect!
- ahahaha..are you crazy!?! I've just met you Paul...
- Ok, what do you want to know about me?
-Everything?!!
- I'm english, I'm working in a school, I'm the english teacher, I have two brothers and you could say I'm catholic.
- Catholic? There are hardly catholics in England and bam! I know one. How is Life!?!
- I don't go to church or anything, but I'm baptized... Well I also want to know something about you, describe yourself in three sentences.
- I was working in Topshop, I have four brothers and one sister, and I will go to the university the next year. And I'm catholic.
- How old are you?
- 19, and you?
- 23, but that's not a problem isn't it?
- A problem for what?
- To go to dinner togheter tonight?
- No, no problem.
- Ok, we meet right here at eight! Bye!

Está completamente loco! Se llama Paul y es un encanto. Ese encanto es la razón de que nunca haya hecho la carrera, me quede allí en Londres con él. Ahora soy fotógrafa de la revista de su colegio ( por algo se empieza) No es lo que yo había planeado pero es mejor...
