Geraldine: Who are YOU?
Me: Lui, my name is Lui,
Geraldine to mother: Mom, he’s like three!!
Me: TWENTY three, I’m twenty three years old.And that was that. She slammed the door on her way out. Sal looked up from his numbers and told me not to mind his sister, that she was just flirting. Goni’s bosom heaved. This was more than she could bear I could tell. So I left it at this. In the hall I kissed her and touched her gold pendant that spelled the four letters of her name, Goni, oh Goni, and I became intensely warm and excited. Then I heard a door slam upstairs and I left.
