An ugly and very sad story from Cuba
by Andy B
I met a beautiful Cuban girl named Rachael who was very nice, naive. Not to much education, but honest. She was one of the 2.5% that are nice, honest, and sincere.
This is typical too in Cuba. The mother was a witch, she trained and brainwashed the girl into buying the most expensive things when cheaper things were available. The mother would force her to try and make me buy things that the mother wanted and would take.
Once when I returned to Cuba and went for her she had on broken and dirty shoes. I asked her where are the shoes I bought you and where is the gold chain I bought you? She told me her mother made her give them to her and the mother sold them as they needed food and things.
I was so upset I cut the mother off completely. I was there for a few months and we traveled around, rarely returning to her home where the queen of the witches lived Wana in Cienfuegos.
I was so in love with this girl that I told her I was leaving for 2 months and coming back with a suit to marry her. When I got back to Toronto my sister was in the hospital dying. I was so upset at my younger sister dying in the hospital and thinking how short life is, I returned to Cuba in 3 weeks.
When I got her at her home she was like under control of her wicked witch mother Wana and seemed different. When I took her back to my casa particular she started crying. I asked her what was wrong and she asked me to give her some paper and a pen, and she started writing a 3 page letter to me. My Spanish is pretty good but I couldn't understand the letter as well there was 3 guys names in the letter and the word cida (aids). I asked her if it was alright to take her and the letter to my English professor friend for him to translate it and she agreed.
At the professors home he read it and said to me, do you know what it says here, it says her mother forced her to go with other guys (Cuban) that liked her, the letter said she had sex with all 3 of them and the rumour was 1 of those guys has sida (aids). I couldn't believe my ears and we went back to my casa.
No way was I going to have sex with her but I loved her and wanted to take care of her. At my casa was a doctor (owner). I asked the owners to prepare us a nice dinner. While sitting at the table Rachaels head turned/twisted to one side. I said what's wrong with your head? When she spoke her words were sounding strange as if her tongue was twisted???
She said she was going to speak to the doctor, when she returned her head was turned to the other side and her speech was messed up. She didn't eat and we returned to our room. While in the room I told her that her only problem was her mother and that her mother was giving her false information, she went a little crazy as I was bad mouthing her mother. I was now fed up and told her, get your things together and I'll take you home, and I did.
As she left my car I said your mother is the problem and she told me to F. O. in a very strange voice. From that day forward I saw her only 3 times and we talked each time. Her voice was permanently impaired and she also was in the hospital for mental problems too I heard.
This is Cuba. Even when you find that real nice person, the 2.5% of all Cubans someone else coaches them, influences them, and changes them. In poor Rachael case her mother ruined her life and made her go a little insane/crazy.
This is Cuba and be very careful. If you are not in Cuba for 6 or 7 months each and every year, it is impossible to have a relationship with any Cuban.
I'm still broken hearted for this beautiful, innocent, nice girl who her own mother messed up and got her screwed over. She never did get or have sida (aids) Thank God
