“Somewhere there’s a place, holding something, concealing someone, holding your fate, but only waiting for the time.”
The first time they saw each other they were both late. He was the security guard and she was the student studying English. But it was not the right time for either of them. Silvia’s friend was in love with Enrique. She sent him notes and presents. So Silvia stayed away. Enrique though always believed the notes and presents were from Silvia. One day, he finally sent her a note back. Silvia’s practical response to the messenger…”Tell him to say it in person.” Immediately she regretted what she had said. So she left school early knowing he would be at lunch. He returned from lunch early so there would be no chance of missing her. It was the right time. Destiny would have them meet on that corner away from school.
Enrique can’t stop making jokes. When I asked about how he had met the love of his life, he answered, “Mail Order Bride- Clearance Section.” Silvia laughs. You can tell she adores him. Their kids have inherited that awesome playfulness. When I asked them why they took so long in getting married he answered, “We were searching for the right photographer.” Yup. I gotta love him too.
Took a break for the ice-cream man! Then Silvia stole Enrique’s ice-cream. (She stole a cupcake from him on their first date too!)
