Chapter 1 – page 4

The classroom was open so we step in. It was a big room, with a lot of light in it, all painting stuffs were very well arranged I felt like in a museum, like a kid in a museum… I wanted to touch everything from there. I didn’t think about painting one second in my life.

I was looking at Lorelay, she was enchanted by a picture with one lady who has a sword in her hand and a hugging a baby… maybe her maternal instincts spikes in.

M        – You have full 10 minutes standing in front of this picture!

L          – Shhhh! Just pay more attention and you will understand me!

M        -Ok…

Ok, it was not just that, in back of that woman, painted in shades were some figures, all they make me think of was, depression, anxiety, screams… ok, this picture maybe hit me to hard… oh, in the sword tip was a sun, maybe it’s all about how hard it’s for a mother, maybe a single mother to raise a kid… maybe!

By the time she was still watching that picture I found out one that catch my attention too. Was in the back of the class, it was a painting of a woman with a red dress, with white hair, blue eyes and a knife in her hand, she was laying on a piano, and the piano was in ballroom i think. But she was smiling… that smile, kind cute but something gives me chills about it! I take it in my hands and turn it around it was a name on it’s back Hennry Schol… was erased. Ok, I put I back to his place and continue to watch it, I saw something intriguing.

M        – Lorelay! Lorelay!

L          -Yes!

M        -Come here, please!

L          -Yes! What?

M        – Look at this picture!

L          – Ok, I’m looking! What’s about it?

M        – Look closer!

L          – I didn’t catch it!

M        -Look at the colors!

J – Good job mate, already loosing some wild party… but a man have to do what a man have do to… you get it!

M – yeah, I will get it (we were both laughing)

It was Sunday morning, I was in front of our dorm drinking a coffee and smoking a cigar and I saw Lorelay crossing by!

M- Hey! Lorelay!

L- Oh! Hi Mase, what are you doing?

M – Nothing, a coffee. Where are you going?

L- I go to our painting classroom, I need to see how it is! Do you want to come with me?

M- Yes. Just wait to finish my smoke. So, i have to ask you about that.

L – Sure, go ahead!

M- Why did you chose law if you like to paint…

L- Oh, it s just a passion, I can t see my self making money out of it. It’s just something that help me to express my self with.

M- I understand. ( Maybe it won t be so bad if I will develop a hobby)

L – Are you done?

M – Yeah, let’s go, you know where it is?

L – yeah, it s in the main building.

M- Ok!

Here we are, in the main building looking for the room. It was a big building with lots of windows very bright, with a lot of pictures, I guess they were some builders of this and people who absolve it! By the time we were searching for the room I was more and more enchanted by her beauty, her voice, her moves… I guess this will be a hard crush, I didn’t think about myself that I could fall for someone like that. But the time will say what it will be between us.

L – Look, here it is!

M – Mis. Golthin… I guess she will be our teacher!…

Chapter I – page 1

Here, in my town, more like a village with some towers, you can stay and live peacefully, with your wife, kids, grandparents… you can get a nice job, live, procreate and die. But this wasn’t for me, I don t say that I didn’t like my town, I love it, here I drank my first beer, been with my first girlfriend, make a lot of memories, have a lot of friends, you know. I just need to try something new, just to taste what a big city is.

So, me and my good mate Jack decided to make a big step and go to the law University. Let me tell you few about Jack, he is my best pal, I meet him in the early days that me and my parents moved in this city, I was five or six years old, he live across the street and we meet by time I was helping my parents to move some stuff by the truck, he offered to help me, after that we take my toys and play in my front yard, that’s by short our meet story. We stayed friends, we’ve been in the same classroom by the time I was 6 till today.

 So here we are at the final year, our graduation party, with all of ours palls contemplating, after a few drinks, about how short was this school, about how we should get some jobs, marry and stuff like that. Jake and I didn’t manage to tell them that we are going to law school together, so we decided to tell them that night, we were pleased by their support and encouragement.
