At any cost, no one, either man or woman, has ever fucked with my mother..
She was the most progressive, cultivated, voluptuous, and sensual woman any one had ever seen.

Her family left her a small inheritance and she used it to become the youngest and most brilliant woman in our town.

She was a real revolutionary.

Everything about her, from the way she dressed, her work, her alluring beauty, and her decision to become a single mother went against the grain and she knew it.

Her decision to have me alone showed her conviction to the counter culture.

Everything I know came from her.. my extensive knowledge of numbers, my love of chamber music, my ability to tell what is true fine art from a forgery to name a few.

And the simple fact that I was regularly eating, savoring really.. a fine truffles before my tenth birthday.

I owe it all to her.

Having her, as a mother was fascinating, almost delirious at times.
My life was nothing like my friends'. But for one thing, I never knew my father.

There were never any men around. She was so discrete, unattached, almost secretive. She was the kind of person who rarely spoke.

She always used to say this to me, "You have two ears, but just one mouth for a reason.. You should speak half as much as you listen."

Her penchant for silence was far from accidental. It wasn't just that she was a private person. My mother had a lot to keep quiet about. In fact, her livelihood depended on our ability to keep our mouths shut. Few people ever knew about it.

She would often tell me her stories, packed with thrill, some uncanny, and some adventurous.

But of all her enchantment and adventures, there was one that she considered her masterpiece. One story that she told with more vigor, vanity, and excitement than all the others.

She called it her "best work". And it was funny because it was never clear just what she had did, or what made it so special from the rest. All I really know about that particular, and in her words "ambitious" caper is the mark:

Kim Sebastian and Kim Miguel.

The two brothers of a wealthy family. One a Philanthropist, the other a novelist. Both on worlds' apart, for they never understand each others' view.

She often spoke of them, in fact. And always with the utmost sincere and profound intellectual admiration.

I would listen her intently. Trying so hard not to ask questions.. but always asking too many in the end, causing her to snap out of it and change the subject.
I was always suspicious, that it was more than just asimple deed. Especially when Kim Miguel wrote a best-selling novel whose protagonist mysteriously resembled my mother.

But unfortunately, neither the novel, nor my mother ever revealed exactly what precious and vulnerable thing she did from him that day.

Of course, in the end I figure it out.

After years of stalking around the house, searching for some hidden object, it finally came to me... There wasn't any mysterious treasure hiding around in every corner... It was her diary! That scorched- looking integument layered material hidden and locked inside a chest in her drawer.


Circa 1994

I am so tired of having to define myself to others. Black or white, sweet or savory, friend or lover, paramour or polygamy, dominating or submi...
