My Life in Cuba
After being widowed for a while my friend's convinced me to go with them to Cayo-Largo Cuba, and to shed my black robe's and start living again.I was hesitant but i finally agreed.To make it short,on my last two day's at the resort,a security guard offered me his assistance in accompanying me back to my room for it was dark and late,we talked for a while and i retreated to my room.
The next night he did the same this time he asked me to accompany him on his round's and i did,we finally sat down in the gazebo and talked about politic's,family etc.
On the last and final night it happened,he took me in his arm's and held me tight and i felt alive again,I refused intimacy,for respect of my late husband and my own dignity,which he much appreciated.When i made arrangement's to meet him in La Habana,he was not the romantic man i had met ,but an arrogant and abusive drunk with many failed relationship's,but i blamed the cuban economy for this and gave him the benefit of the doubt.
I stayed 10 day's and it was a disaster,he left me alone to go drinking with his friend's,and ignored me.
But yet it took another 4 time's for this Canadian to realize what was happening,i found out that while he was with me in Havana he had another pregnant woman in the isla,my cuban girlfriend warned me of this.
I finally knew which way the wind was blowing confronted him with this news and i went back home emotionally drained.
Yes i bought him shoes and food,but on recent visit's he was alway's there and tried his best to convinvce me to marry him,i said i might be crazy but not stupid.
He is a good looking Mulatto,and we still e-mail,but boundry's are drawn,i do not send money,and my last vist last year he paid most of the time.
Now i am in charge,i'm no longer intimidated by his age or look's,this was an experience for a naive widow who was married to one man for many year's,and thought all men were good kind and honest--bull-shit!
I have to thank Mercedes my best friend in the world for saving my life and my economy.
