Title: Kingdom of Loneliness
Letters 1 - 3
I never wrote a letter to anyone but I love to do it. You didn't expect this, right?
I'm writing because it's not easy for me to talk about what I felt when you left me yesterday.
It was a wonderful afternoon. Do you know it was the first time someone visited me just because of ME? I can't remember the movie we watched. First we talked about this and that (there's still your voice in my head) and then I was distracted by your closeness. The radiant heat of your skin I could feel even through my thick sweater. I remember the smell of your hair – like a field of lemons… when you leaned forward to get some … - was it chips? … I had to close my eyes to absorb everything. More than once you had to repeat a question because I was lost in thoughts. I couldn't concentrate on anything. I think I even blushed when you touched my arm.
After the movie you flipped through the program and stopped at a documentary on photography. If someone would have told me my TV would be running with something like this one day before … I'd have declared them for crazy.
You repeated the important parts over and over again which made me laugh. You told me you're watching something like this whenever they'd show it on Discovery Channel.
'We could watch it together whenever you want' I told you. And I mean it.
You've been so excited and beaming with delight – we ordered pizza later because I wanted you to stay a little bit longer. I enjoyed your company very much.
Maybe we could do this again, Casey? I'd be looking forward to it.
Let me know what you think about it.
Maybe you could send a letter to me, too.
Thank you so much for your letter. I have to admit I am surprised and … thrilled.
Like you I enjoyed our time immensely. I thought about it and I still do. I didn't dare to hope this could ever be happening.
By the way – the movie we watched was "Gentle" – one of my favorites. I saw Mrs. Streisand but that was it. You've been distracted by me? Oh my, you must have noticed how nervous I was babbling incoherently. Do you know how wonderful your voice is? I could listen to you for hours. Unfortunately you didn't talk that much. All because of me? What is this, Zeke? I still can't believe it. There's so much I want to tell you but I'm at a loss of words. You want us to meet again, to spend some time together? I'd so very like to come but I'll give you a promise : We don't have to watch documentaries if you don't like it. Just let me know.
How about Friday afternoon? I could stay a little longer if you want me to.
I'm so looking for your answer.
Friday is close but the days, hours are running slow. Maybe we could go to Stokely's birthday party together? Or to the theatre (even if I'm sure I won't remember anything) ?
See on you Friday. 7.30 p.m. – I'll catch you.
