#128 Getting To Know Each Other (# 2) !!! (Part 10) 「あぜりあ」本八幡・西船橋・津田沼・佐倉


Greetings To Everyone!!

I am back on Saturday for a change. Isn’t that nice to get my regular Blog Day back? I am writing this at night for you and it is a very nice lovely, cool night at that. Our Hilo temperatures have been very HOT for late Summer. I think it was Anywhere, my Darlings, from 88 degrees to 96 degrees. I am not sure exactly what it was today, but it sure was hot enough.

Guess we should get to the reading of The Blog…#128 and have some fun?


BLOG : #128 : Getting To Know Each Other (# 2) !!! (Part 10)

I don’t know how long I cried actually when I learned that Tony was leaving THE CUNNINGHAM BUILDING where he was staying in his Room #7, but it certainly felt like it was all night as I laid on my bed, my pillow case and pillow soaking wet from my endless tears. I just couldn’t stop crying. I felt like I had known Tony forever, not just a few mere days, and he was LEAVING.

He would be out of my life soon.

I did not have any idea what I would do now.

How could the beginning to my wonderful, new life in Hilo, come to an end so soon? Tony would soon leave and I would wind up staying here at The Cunningham Building in Room #1 and probably would never be remembered by him again. I would always remember HIM though, and I would most likely come to my death through the way of a broken heart if nothing else.

We spent as much time as we could together. But to me, it could never be enough. To hear the words that Tony was leaving was too much for me to handle. I knew I wouldn’t be able to take it and I would burst into tears yet again; this time right in front of him. I knew it HAD to happen.

Then the day came.

We were in his room and I was trying my best to relax with the glass of wine he had offered me and he was in a wonderful mood. Very happy and excited.

I found a place, he said. He said something else too, but I did not hear it because I was already in tears.

This was it. This was the end of my beautiful dream-life!

‘Didn’t you hear what I said,’ Tony asked. ‘I thought you would be happy.’

Silence and more tears from me.

‘Why are you crying? Please don’t cry.’

He took me in his arms and held me for a long time and then asked me again why I was crying. I, knowing that this would be one of the last times that Tony would hold me; cried even harder.

Finally, I managed somehow, to get the words out, barely loud enough for him to hear.

‘ You’re ……….. Leaving……..!’ I said. ‘I don’t want you to go.’

‘Mary, look at me.’

It was apparent he had more to say. More words about his leaving ME that I did NOT want to hear. More words of HURT. More words to make me CRY.

I didn’t want to hear the WHEN part. WHEN Tony was going. I didn’t even want to guess at it but I knew. Of course I knew. It would probably be at the end of the month. That is how RENTAL things worked. So, I knew we did not have much more time together at all.

It took me awhile before I could stop crying long enough to bring myself to look him in the face.

‘When are you……..going?’ I finally managed to ask, my tears immediately returning.

‘I…..’he began.

Then it suddenly dawned on him that I truly HADN’T heard everything he’d said.

‘Mary…..Honey….I…..I found a place yes, a place for…..US. If you want to come with me.’

This time more tears came. Tears of Joy.

It wasn’t just him who was leaving. I was leaving too.

He wanted ME to go with him.

How could I say no?? I couldn’t.

I said yes !!!

(PART 11) soon.
