A person without name, without the past…

22 Mar

“An Autumn evening. It’s getting dark. Silence reigns. The easy autumn breeze blows, bringing with itself a cool and hardly perceptible smell of camomiles. It rustles, plays with the fallen leaves, turning them in the evening air. There are no clouds in the sky. Only glare of a decline shows all beauty of this bottomless, pure, far sky. The wide road to anywhere. Suddenly a man has appeared on it. The man from nowhere, without a name, without the past. As if he has arisen from air, or maybe that easy breeze which is so cheerfully and fervently plays with the fallen leaves has brought that person . Who is he? What is he doing here, one in the middle of the immense road leading to a dark, unknown distance? Who is he, this person without a name, without the past…”

–       A man without a name? A man from nowhere?  Who could compose this nonsense? In my mind, the name is something that everyone has and there it doesn’t matter if he is poor or rich, from the notable sort or from the usual family. – said Violetta with the smile on her face.

–       Oh, where have you found this fragment? – Jennifer, Violetta’s best friend, decided to specify this.

–       I don’t know who has written this. Yesterday when I was walking in the park the bright-blue scrap of paper attracted my attention. In addition, as you know I am the most curious person in the world, so I could not walk further without knowing more about this bit of paper.

–     Violetta, when you at last disaccustom to poke your nose into other people’s business! You know, this your curiosity sometime… All right, let’s drop it, but all the same it is very silly!

–     Ok, Jenny! Do you think that a piece of paper can change my life or cause me a trouble? It is only a paper and is nothing more!

–     Oh, notes of a madman! Violetta, I worry about you. You are my best friend, and I do not want something bad happen to you!

–     Jenny, what are you speaking about? Do you think that something bad can come about me? Where have you adopted such pessimistic notes? And if something bad happens with me – well what is done, is done to the better! It is experience, and experience is always useful! So do not worry about me! Anyway, it is very late, let’s finish our discussion and let’s go to sleep.

–      Yes, it is useless to argue with you, but all the same, you think about my words.

That cold autumn night Violetta could not fall asleep for a long time. “And even so, there is a deep secret sense in this note… ” That was the last idea with which Violetta had plunged into Morpheus empire.

Violetta was a very interesting person. She was very emotional, but at the same time the resolute girl. Violetta had fine taste. She always dressed non-standardly, and frequently made up her own garments. As a result of that it was always possible to notice her in the crowd of grey people of our city, who eternally haste and run to and thro. Violetta was quite an amorous girl. She loved all that surrounded her. She gave all people the smile, the pleasure, the heat. Jenn who was the best friend of Violetta was her absolute contrast. Jenn never loved to show her emotions to other people, she was a very serious person who analyzed everything: the actions, the words, the associates. It was impossible to see a droplet of sentimentality in Jenn. She was as cold as ice, and as acute as the all-seeing eye. Despite of such strong distinctions Jenn and Violetta were like sisters. They have got lot in common.They supplemented each other. They were like air and fire, which could not live without each other, but at the same time, can kill each other. Jenn came frequently to Violetta and felt herself at home after the long and complicated working day. But this time Jenn had stayed at Violetta’s house for such a long time, that she had to remain with her to spend the night. In the morning, Jenn woke up early, while Violetta was still fast asleep. She prepared a coffee for herself and made a pair of sandwiches. Without waiting for Violetta to awaken Jenn had breakfast in solitude and run for work.

Violetta luxuriated in a bed for a long time and did not want to go out from under the warm and cozy blanket but the beams of the sun, which started to filter through the curtains, did not allow her to sleep any more. Eventually she has woken up. Beside, on a pillow, there was a note: «My best friend, Sleep Beauty, who spends her time in a bed to the midday. Let’s see each other in the evening. Jenn»

–    Well again Jenn has woken up before me!

Violetta sat on a bed, tightened and smiled to the warm autumn sun. Today she had a day off and she did not know how to occupy herself for all day.

–       I wish Jenn returned from work soon! We could go to the cinema or have a nice little chat at some small restaurant, – Violetta was still sitting in a bed, dreaming.

In about five minutes she at last rose and directed to a bath. When she saw her reflection in a mirror Violetta smiled and thought that she is actually a very nice girl, the thought that cheered her up.

After breakfast, Violetta decided to read but it wasn’t much fun so she turned on the TV. However, at this time there was not anything interesting. Therefore, she lied on the sofa and looked up at the ceiling with blank eyes… She thought that the target was not as interesting as she assumed at first. All her friends were at work so none could accompany her; suddenly an abrupt sound of the phone ringing interrupted all her thoughts.

–       Yeah.

–       Hi, Vi! This is me, Jenn.

–       Oh hi, Jenn! I am happy to hear you! You know it is very boring to stay at home all day long! I’ve read, I’ve watched TV, and now I don’t know what to do! It is so…

–       Vi, I want to tell you that I am going to my friends this evening so I can’t keep your company…

–       But…

–       I’m really sorry, but I can’t do anything…

–       Oh… thanks for a good evening! Bye.

The long telephone beeps sounded… Violetta was very annoyed that Jennifer was so irresponsible. But Violetta wasn’t a person, who kept being upset for a long time and she didn’t want to lose this evening. She wasn’t going to be alone this evening. Violetta went to the mirror, looked at her reflection and thought that she was awfully beautiful. At first she put on a red short dress with V-neck. It emphasized all advantages of her figure. She couldn’t help but admire herself.

Suddenly she undressed and put on her usual jeans and a bright blue T-shirt. She made a bun of her hair and went out. She was very pleased with herself.

She walked along to the park listening to the sounds of the nature. Violetta looked at skies, which were grey. Suddenly a massive cold sprinkle dripped at her face. She shuddered. A strong gusty wind blew near her. The trees trembled. Abruptly a burly peal of thunder sounded. She looked at the sky and bright lightning sparkled into her eyes. A rain began… She was alone in this park…

An orange, like the sun, umbrella appeared above her head. A man emerged out of the blue… She looked at him… and fell in love at the first sight! She felt herself as if in a mysterious dream. She sank in his eyes, she felt as if she dropping in the abyss… A sweet voice returned her to the real life.

–       Miss, what are you doing here alone in such awful weather?

Violetta couldn’t say anything. She only smiled and looked at her savior. For an instant he plunged in Violetta’s warm radiant eyes. For an instant the time stopped. There was nothing. There wasn’t the rain, wasn’t the wind, wasn’t the thunder, wasn’t the lightning. There were only two loving hearts, which were beating at one pace. Suddenly a strong impulse of the wind broke her bun and the locks of her long beautiful hair flew in the air. It was a magic moment. The wind dispersed all clouds. The rain stopped. A rainbow appeared in the heavens. The man held Violetta’s hand in his.

–       How beautiful is everything! This is the best moment in my life! – Violetta whispered in a               trembling voice.

The stranger touched her lips with gentle arms and whispered back to her.

–     Please, don’t say anything. I wish this moment never stopped… Let’s go with me…Let’s be          together… Forever and ever…

They sat inside the black cabriolet and rushed away of the grey cold city. Violetta’s hair scattered in the wind. She was in a world of reveries. She didn’t realize anything. She only listened to her heart, to her feelings. A few minutes later they were on the top of the mountain from which they could see the whole city. He got out of the car, held her hand and stood at the edge of the cliff. The last patches of light from the sunset disappeared. The city wrapped up with darkness. Thousands of stars lit up in the sky.

–       I will forever be near you. I will be for you a reliable lee. We will be together forever and ever. Our love will be as strong as wind.   Our love will be eternal… I love you…Jenn… Will you stay with me forever?

–       Yes, I am in love with you, I knew that I would meet you – that note told it to me. I want to be with you…

–       Don’t say anything. Let’s see the beauty of the nature…

Jenn was so happy. They stayed together looking at the heaven with their own dreams. And no one will ever know their thoughts… Suddenly the lightning appeared in the heaven and illuminated them for a moment. Jenn saw his eyes and suddenly a suspicion emerged, something in her mind whispered that it was a deceit. At this moment he touched her ear with his lips and whispered:

–       I love you…

And Jenn’s disturbed feeling disappeared… But the weather was getting worse and worse… So they got into his car. He suggested going to the restaurant and she agreed. In the restaurant he received a call.

–       Yeah. That’s me. Err… Ok. I will be there in a few minutes. Yeah. Ok, see you later. Bye.

Jenn, my dear Jenn, I must go, but I will return. Will you wait for me here?

–       Oh, sure. I’ll wait for you.

He kissed her cheek and went away… no one knew how many hours passed by, but he didn’t return… Jenn was sitting alone thinking what could happen with her lover. She couldn’t realize that he left. An empty cup of tea stood in front of her. She looked at her reflection in the cup. Suddenly an unfamiliar voice returned her to the real life:

–       Miss, it is too late, we are closing.

Jennifer paid for her lonely dinner and went home. She was very upset. She didn’t realize how she came home, everything was like a dream. She opened the window and a gust of wind flew into her room, the sprinkles of the heavy rain made her face wet, but she didn’t pay attention at it. The rain cried together with her, the nature sobbed together with her … Suddenly a strong impulse of the wind broke heaps of yellowish leaves and rushed them into her room… Unexpectedly the bright-blue scrap of paper appeared in front of her. The piece of paper that she found in the park. She  took this paper. A massive tear fell down to the paper. She opened it and read:

“An Autumn evening. It’s getting dark. Silence reigns. The easy autumn breeze blows, bringing with itself a cool and hardly perceptible smell of camomiles. It rustles, plays with the fallen leaves, turning them in the evening air. There are no clouds in the sky. Only glare of a decline shows all beauty of this bottomless, pure, far sky. The wide road to anywhere. Suddenly a man has appeared on it. The man from nowhere, without a name, without the past. As if he has arisen from air, or maybe that easy breeze which is so cheerfully and fervently plays with the fallen leaves has brought that person . Who is he? What is he doing here, one in the middle of the immense road leading to a dark, unknown distance? Who is he, this person without a name, without the past…”
