New York City hasn’t been the same since she returned from her trip in Havana. Cuba. While visiting with some aunts and uncles, she befriended a young man who lived next door. He often helped out her aunt with some chores around the horse. Sometimes, they played Brisca together with her uncle.

On a walk together, he asked if he she remembered him. She had to say no. Unfortunately, her trips to Cuba had been sparse since was a child. He told they used to play together when she vacationed there with her family. Back home, he showed her a picture of them as kids, dirt on their faces. She laughs and says she remembers him now.

She split her time between her family and him. He kissed her as they walked along Trinidad. Her aunt and uncle celebrated seeing them dating. During the talks, she told him it could only be temporary. They could stay in contact but not be in a relationship. He said he would wait.

Back in New York City, she sees show many places she would love to show him. However, he isn’t hers anymore. No matter how long they stay apart, though, she will think of him as her true love.
