Silvia Cavarretta 5cl


Ten years of marriage, thought Edith, it seems yesterday. But it’s not. Ten years have passed since she went to the altar, but she didn’t feel them. Maybe because of her first-born’s birth, Lucas, maybe just because she loved him more than anyone and it had to be a strong love to live near a man like the one she married. He didn’t embody the perfect man, not at all, he seemed to have all the faults that a man could have, but he was also the only one who understood deeply and completely his wife. But how many doubts before the marriage! Edith persuaded herself thinking how normal it was having doubts about a such a big deal, every woman would have been in doubt, especially because their first meeting was just good, nothing special, said always Edith.
She was in the living room, looked around and saw all that stuff that before would have made her the proudest and the most glorious woman in the world. Porcelain dinner services, sets of silver curtlery, pictures by well-known painters still made her one of the most envied women in the Great Britain, but these couldn’t be the bases of a perfect marriage, couldn’t be the reason of a strong love and she understood that late, but fortunately not too late. Of course, when she met for the first time her husband her first impressions were excellent from a materialistic point of view: he was one of the most influential business men, he led a company, well-known all over the country; such a modest and calm man, although his powerful position.
Suddently someone knocked at the door. It must be Penelope, thought Edith, it’s about five o’ clock, tea-time. The woman-servan ran up to welcome the guests on the doorstep. Good afternoon Mr and Mrs Long, said she candidly, Sir and Lady Marvel are waiting for you in the garden. Meanwhile the host-couple sat down. Gary Marvel had just finished reading the newspaper and he was glad to meet Goeffrey because he haven’t seen him since his last travel to Italy.
The women talked about the pleseant weather for a while, then they decided to go inside, the men discussed about politics. Edith looked at the men, first Gary, then Goeffrey and again Gary. I was completely wrong, thought she, I am lucky now, not then.
