“English I know badly but colloquial is”


From Triple Canopy:

It was 9:02 in the morning a few Septembers ago that an email was sent to my college alumni account, which in some years I hadn’t used for forwarding. It’s taken me this time, I’m afraid, to arrange what further will follow.

The tab that opened when I clicked on the link asked me for my password, which, I’m sure, I had no memory of; and I must then have closed the tab; yet, compelled, clicked on the link once more, whereupon I was logged in automatically, as if by prestidigitation.

Do you want a challenge in your life?…:) Such as – to make a beautiful woman fall in love with you?… You have a good start – you made me interested with your profile, but that’s not enough to keep me interested!

Well, I can’t say that I’m easy… No, I’m complicated… But you don’t seem to be the one who is afraid of difficulties 🙂 Be sure you’ll be rewarded with all my love and passion! Although this life is a game, I am not playing a game with you – I’ll give you everything – my love, my body, my mind and my entire life, be sure I know how to be faithful! But… you have to give me all the same from your side… it’s like diving into the ocean – no half-steps, for all your life, but it is worth it!

So… are you ready to dive?… Don’t

I closed the tab; then, again, clicked on the link.

“Happy Moscow”, Sam Frank, Triple Canopy
