If someone sees me here in the sand, under the beach umbrella with my red hair and my clear skin, now scalded thinks that I’m probably a tourist... an Irish woman. The truth is that I’m Italian and I’m born here in the city more closer to this beach, I’m lamenting myself like that, while I check on my family that are sitting at the shore since the waves are a little too big for my babies, and my husband stays with them joking when something catches my look...
Two people that are jokingly splashing each other. I can hear the laughter of joy from here. I can only see the dark outline, since the sun is behind them, but I’m not sure not even if they are a man and a woman, or two men. I can see them from time to time, since when the waves are up they are hidden from them, when they are down they are visible. When a wave goes down, these two are very close. I’m not sure if when I can’t see them they are kissing each other or just talking nearly in the ear. After a while they came out from the sea, and now I can see that they are two men. I can see that seem to be the same age... around twenty years old. One is blond with two beautiful brown eyes and gorgeous lips, and the other has dark hair and two blue eyes like the sea, and he is a little taller than the blonde. I can see that they are easy with each other, I started to think if they are friends, related, brothers, or something else. They walked one near the other for a while. Then the blonde running arrived first to the towel and takes two of them, throwing one to the brunette that was distracted seeing a wind surfer and says:
- “You just need to take attention, Noah”
Luke and Noah sits in the two deck chairs near me, the two are sitting very close and they shared the I-Pod. They looked at each other with an intensity that seems like they understand just with a glance. I think they can be twins, and if they are, then they are heterozygous, but I rejected this idea fast. The wire of the headphones are very short and often falls from their ear, so Luke moved himself a little behind and Noah sat in front of him, giving his back to the blonde. Now a large part of the bathers are gone and slowly they seemed more free, and Noah placed his head into Luke’s chest almost for a chance, while the blonde placed himself right very close to Noah’s right hand on his chest. I continued to think what they are for each other, but when a simple gesture showed me that, Noah intertwining his fingers with Luke’s, they are simply two men in love.
