The Bringer of joy

Writing 101: A Character-Building Experience
Today, you’ll write about the most interesting person you’ve met in 2014. In your twist, develop and shape your portrait further in a character study.”

Sunday, November, family lunch. Her red shirt only amplifies the redness on her face, but her smile was still genuine. That was the first time we met and every day after that, this girl brought something back that I believed was gone for good, my cheerfulness.

How someone can get so fast from extremely elegant to totally goofy, it’s an enigma for me. As she relates how she saw the most beautiful nail polish, her face changes while remembering that the salesgirl tried to trick her with the price of the product. Then she tells me how she put that lady in her place, because it wasn’t right.

I like the way she marvels so much at any small gift or gesture that I do for her, but most of all I love when she assaults me with the most unexpected jokes, I go speechless and that’s rare.
