Yellow Love Story

She was boring.

Why not stay in bed this morning? Her blond hair on the yellow pillow. The ceiling had a pale white color. Maybe she might change it?
The same dream each night. Why dreaming? Nothing is becoming true… She closed her eyes.
She’s a nurse in the biggest hospital of Frisco. She remembers this man she nursed once. Blond-haired, a sensual voice, gentle. She often thought of him. She would like so deeply to fall in love.

Maybe she could escape from this material life. From the tram each morning, from the clock, from the shopping… A white rabbit is running in her room, he’s dressed, he seems to be late, he entered into the mirror of her dressing-table.

It seemed strange to her because he went through it, like if he went on the other side of the mirror. She stood up. Went near the dressing-table. She saw on it all what she left last night before going to bed, even the sandwich (with jam) which she had not eaten.

She looked inside the mirror. The reflect, her tired and old face (even though she’s only 34 years old). Where’s this rabbit? She clung her nose to the mirror. It disapeared. She gave a jump, falling to the floor. What’s that? “I can’t pass through a glass!” But the rabbit did… So? She stood up, smiled, laughed, shouted and jumped into the mirror…

She was rejected onto the floor of her room. “Nooooooooo”, she shouted. “Why, whyyyyyyyyyy?” she cried. The tears sound strange, like crystals falling and breaking on the floor, on her carpet. A yellow carpet, like the pillow. “Why!”

She sucked the glass. Something wet on the other side. “Hello” said a male voice, “your taste is good.” What? Yellow eyes were looking at her blues. How many times did they stay like that? One hour? One day? One month? One year? One century maybe.

He was living on the other side of the mirror for some 46 centuries. He met 3 violet rabbits, one yellow, 2 whites (pale hairs), 2 roofs, 1068 black holes, 24 cartepillars, 5 lobsters, and she is the most beautiful woman he has ever seen, and the only one also, he said to her. She told him about her life, her material daily life.

He didn’t really understand but say “ya” to everything, scared to hurt her. He loved so much yellow. He told her that he lived in a cube, sometimes a circle or a bowl, it depends on his mind, he creates what he wants in this world. He is used to having no use. He likes to pluck flowers and to smell them even if there’s not so much flowers there but as he can imagine everything. He loves this way to be, he can even walk on the background, the foreground, or up above if he wants. But he hates geometry. He’s never been to school, he did not know what she was saying when she talked about that at first. But he saw clearer when she showed him a schoolbook.

She would love to run with him on the yellow fields with the grey flowers. He said that he could create everything for her. He seems that he could even create a heart for himself, to be able to love her for the whole life.

Life? “Is he mortal?” It came like that in her head. She became frozen at one go. She trembled. “Maybe he is immortal, and i’m going to die soon, I, I… If I loose him?” Did he see her crystal yellow tears?? Maybe he heard them falling on the yellow carpet. But the fact is that he continued to smile. “Maybe he did not know what sadness was?” He sucked the glass. “Don’t mind, i need you, and you can come here with me and you’ll become immortal as i am.” She thought she could.

She went out of her body, of her material life. She escaped, gave him her hand, put her tongue on his. He had such a space taste. Maybe the taste of a dream. They sucked each other, they tasted themselves. “I’m named Lewis, and you?”, murmured he. “Carroll.”, melted she.

You know, be conscious that on earth there’s no way to live our dreams. Maybe one day you’ll also look at yourself in the mirror. You could be surprised of what you’ll see inside. But never forget you’re in the reality. We always wake.

“Maybe I should write a tale”, said Carroll to Lewis sucking him.
