-Marcy! Marcy! He turned to see who called and recognized Nacho, former teammate of the faculty. Nothing had changed; he had the same facade of university, restless, likeable, which she had shared many hours of classes, exams, life opening ahead. Since that time she had not seen him. Because, once finished the studies, life took different paths. They were updated in minutes, talking to the speed of those who have to recover much in a short time.
-Now you can see, Nacho, after so many years of suffering in the faculty, I got to housewife and mother, end of story! What do you think? I am a conventional woman. Manele works and travel a lot and I have to be aware of the children.
It passed by her mind an image of those times: the first time she saw Manele entering class, the first course, so handsome that all the girls began to whisper. He became the most prominent, the most popular, he got good grades without effort and he had a bright future. He drove car to the faculty, when most students arrived on the bus, and he wore designer clothes and glasses of latest model. A good boy of a good family. Manele unleashed passions and he knew it, she was in love with the first day that saw him. Nothing to compare to Nacho, just a student, just a friend. The newly found looked at Marcy with enthusiasm and took out from her memory.
-By you don´t pass the time, hey, a homemaker, as you say, but very, very attractive! The compliment of a friend, is the best to be overlooked.
-You, how about? Do you work?
-At work I was okay, I work with the north americans in a multinational company, I can not complain. But recently I separated, I had to leave my chalet of married and bought a flat in the outskirts, near here, in Mazello, I have a son... is hard to getting used to…
He explained to Marcy that he worked recently in Lank Corporate, a mega company dedicated to the production of technology, although his specific position was in the Finance Department, one of the most powerful of the company.
-Then you'll know that Manele is working on the Duxa Limited, also in finance, right?
-Of course, Marcy, they are our main competitors. We are like the dog and the cat, to see which brings the most advanced technological component. Business is business, but fair play, huh?, fair competition.
Marcy not remembered that Manele had spoken of Nacho, perhaps he did not know yet that he had gotten into Lank Corporate, intractable rival of the Duxa.
-Enjoy your single life. I am your neighbour in Mazello!
-Very good, great!
Always so cheerful Nacho, he was an optimistic.
The two were concentrated in his particular talk, when friends, waiting a few steps from them, began to be impatient.
-Marcy! –claim to her Elizabeth -we're being late... we are going to miss the bus!
He dismissed Nacho with so much to say, they were eager to further conversation.
-Hey, we live so close we will find again… see you soon!
-Goodbye, Nacho! was great to meet you again.
The two friends parted with the kisses of rigour and a hasty flutter of hands and looks backwards, while they were wrapped by the crowd of the rush hour, walking through the Boulevard looking for lunch.
