Eloquently... Naïma

Naïma was a friend of mine.

Gorgeous Algerian girl, she spoke the most elegant French I have ever heard. Every thing that she said sounded like a poem. Every sentences stood out. Softly and gracefully.

Her ability in building stories where outstanding. You had no choice but to shut up and listen to her while she would, eloquently, describe the hearth shattering beauty of her native country.

- Majestueuses, mes amours... Mes montagnes. À perte de vue... Comme je m'ennuie de Vous !

While mourning the mountains that sculpted the landscape of her childhood, she would literally transport you there. Bringing Algeria right into your living room.

- What ?

- I'm a lesbian Naïma.

I never saw her again.

I miss you...

Au revoir, Mon amie... Naïma. O, Comme je m'ennuie de toi !
