Mon amour, on va se flâner (Beauty of the World)

Living a Beautiful Life

“Today, let us forget it all.”  He said, meaning the bankruptcy, criminal charges and upcoming court appearances.

I looked at him in the mirror where I was washing my face.  Even my skin was weary.

“Train tickets to Vieux Port.”  He no longer had his cars, or driver’s license for that matter.  “Première classe.

“Remember when we first met?  Strolling, feeling the Old City.”  He took my hand.  “Viens avec moi, mon amour.  On va se flâner.”
