I saw her newly shaved armpit, she’d shaved it carefully for her date. She glanced again to my left then back at me, glanced to my left and again at me. ” asked Luisa again from her bed.

As she spoke, she started walking, in order to get nearer, and to do so she had to cross the street and traverse the broad esplanade which, on our side of the road, separated the hotel from the pavement, distancing and protecting it a little from the traffic.
