P&M 12. Sunday came in a soft and lush morning glory of various shades of green and blue. In the forest the fog circulated stirring itself around the trees, as each car approached it sheltered spot under the leafy tall trees. This was the usual place the wooded área the Leandros had chosen for their outdoor excursions year after year. One, two, three arrived the masserattis. There a little lagoon bloom with a lot to fish. Peet at the driver’s seat said at the turn of the key. Already, everybody safe now take care of me. – Paulina jumped out of the car and broke to run like a dove in flight and departed as to never come back. Lili was not to move from her seat until Marcos turned to assist and opened the door for her. Leaving her uncomfortable and ignored Lilly could never be. Somebody would have to look and appreciate her long and beautiful legs. Aleandro had the party early with all repaired to make this occasion a wonderful picnic. For Don Ignacio it was important that all her daughters were together when they came to the Vineland. The place, i thought it lent itself to some «problems». (cont..)
Cuando yo apenas era una ameba se me ocurrió hacerme una limonada refrescante para aplacar la sed que tenia en el verano del ’69. Era yo de apenas 18 años de edad el día que me puse a escribir «Paulina y Mauricio». NO ERA LA PRIMERA VEZ QUE CREABA YO UNA HISTORIA,, PERO SI ES LA UNICA ESCRITA QUE AUN GUARDO CONMIGO. Los textos que hoy paso a compartir datan de muchos años atrás. Así es que al leerlo nuevamente suene a viejo. Pero, que va, cuando lo escribí lo hice para entretener y nada mas. Bueno, que se entretengan y rían; y ojala les guste.
When I was barely an amoeba suffering from the unremediable summer blues of a teenager who could not go out with the others because of irritable bowel syndrome; it ocurred to me to make me a lemonade to quench the thirst and to make me happy, to write a story of love and candor that summer of 1968. I was in my teens the day I began to write the tales and adventures of Paulina and Mauricio. Two youngsters also in love, and suffering from the unremediable summer blues. Paulina and Mauricio shined in my mind like two tinny stars in the cosmos and coming towards me at an astronomical speed. These two stars, my friends, had found their destination and they were coming towards me whether I liked it or not! I cannot point out when they finally dropped on my lap. All I know is as soon as they arrived I felt full of joy. No more blues. IT WAS NOT THE FIRST TIME I WAS CREATING A STORY; BUT IT WAS THE FIRST TIME I ATTEMPTED TO WRITE IT DOWN IN PENCIL AND PAPER TO SAVE IT. One day, when the ‘others’ have come home from a delightful day out on the beach they wanted to know what I was doing home all day. «Oh, I see they said, you are writing a story.» And that’s how it all started. My «fan club», that is.
«Urquiza, stop brushing the mane of the horse and do yours! » Urquiza seems to know who is talking to him without looking. Still he turns. He guesses right. It is Mauricio dressed in blue jeans and black shirt. Shield in a black leather jacket and mounted on Peek Leandro’s black horse. – » Mr Mauricio, good to see you», Vidal Urquiza states. Mauricio pulls the reins and places his horse in front of Paulina’s First Assistant, the tall and always impecably dressed, Vidal Urquiza. The same does not appreciate Mauricio who for days is wearing the same dirty cloths, «Tell me baldy, when are you going to cut that long mane of yours. I would rather see you dress like the Tahualpa indian you really are. To see you wearing cotton and wool makes me sick. You are such a fake, tell me where my fiancee Paulina is». Urquiza brushes – «Don’t know where she is his girlfriend, Mr Mauritius.» – «Well, I can’t find her anywhere and you… You are her assistant. Now, don’t you take me for an idiot and tell me where my fiancee is.» What, you hiding her? What, you eaten her? You are dead dumb snob» . Urquiza turns to look at Mauricio. – » Paulina, Mauricio?» Mauricio becomes more frustrated – «Oh, now I will kill you and throw you to the pigs…» A voice shouts behind Mauricio. «Stop!» Paulina appears mounted on a gray spotted white horse with a very, very long mane – (His name is Deaf. It is the horse that was stolen and Mauritius found in neighboring Suipacha). Mounted on Sordo, dressed from head to foot all in white, with a golden ribbon that rounds the brimmed of her hat an ont his back, she looks radiant. She asks. – » Mauricio, where you looking for me?» – » Hi, love…. Paulina, is this guy… He gets me mad! And I love you so, my Paulina Leandro. I thought you lost forever…» – «I understand you, Mauricio. I for one wish I could scratch of a pair of eyes here and there for you sweetie.»- «Oh, my baby, you do understand me. As I say, you are soy good, Paulina Leandro, love of my life. My queen.. My goddess. My …» – «I am your girlfriend Mauricio. That is enough» – «The two lovers were going riding through the vineyards to the river
«Eh boyerito, Urquiza, te acordas de mi?» – «Don Peek, esta de vuelta y con un nuevo automóvil!» – «Mira que vistoso se te ve, Vidal Urquiza. Y esa sonrisa? Alguien te tiene feliz che, Vidal?» – «Ja ja… quiere un matecito Don Peek?» – «Pongale whisky y me lo tomo». _»Hay Don Peek Ud siempre tan gracioso.» – «Decime Vidal donde esta mi prima Paulina?» – «Ella, Don Peek, ella duerme.» – «Son las dos de la tarde y ella duerme?» – «Si, Don Peek, resulta que se acostó tarde anoche celebrando en el bosque» – «A eso he venido, a poner orden en esta casa.

Creo nos vamos a divertir de lo lindo esta noche.» – «Si, Don Peek». «Voy a limpiar el piso con vos franchute!» Dice Peek mientras aplasta el acelerador hasta el fondo. Peek desaparece pronto rumbo al bosque. Mientras que Vidal Urquiza se apresura a entrar en el establo donde Paulina duerme tranquilamente. Urquiza Vidal abre despaciosamente la puerta de su cuarto y encuentra a Paulina durmiendo plácidamente. El se arrodilla y siente su corazón palpitar fuertemente. Menea y baja la cabeza como queriendo esconder su vergüenza. » Oh, mi dueña, que clase de gusano soy yo si dejo actuar a su primo en contra su amado Mauricio…» Paulina se mueve al nombre de ‘Mauricio’. Luego se le escucha decir algo así como «Te amo, Mauricio eres tu …?» Urquiza Vidal siente su pasión aumentar y simula ser Mauricio P»He went there when he Eh, Urquiza, tea drunkard my?» – «Don Peek, is back and with a new car.» – «Look that attractive looking, Vidal Urquiza. And that smile? Someone has happy che, Vidal.» – «Ja ja… wants a matecito Don Peek.» – «Sharethis whisky and i took it». _»There is Don Peek You always so funny.» – «Decime Vidal where is my cousin Pauline?» – «She, Don Peek, she sleeps.» – «Are the two in the afternoon and she sleeps.» – «Yes, Don Peek, it turns out that slept late last night taking place in the forest» – «to what I’m here, to put an order in this House. My uncle has put me in charge of the peasants are astonished and wants me imposing its will . So no more celebrations in the forest.» – «This is good Don Peek. You know Don Peek, tonight have planned more celebrations.» – «that celebrate? Marriage.» – «No. No one is home.

I think we are going to have some fun at how nice this night.» – «Yes, Don Peek». «I’m going to clean the floor with vos French guy is myself!» Peek says while it crushes the accelerator to the fund. Peek disappears soon heading to the forest. While that Vidal Urquiza hastens to enter the barn where Paulina sleeps quietly. Urquiza Vidal slowly opens the door of his room and found Paulina sprawled. The kneel and feels his heart throb strongly. Wags and lowered his head as if wanting to hide their shame. «Oh, my owner, what kind of worm am i if i leave act to his cousin in against his beloved Mauritius…» Paulina moves to the name of ‘Mauritius’. You will then be heard saying something like «I love you, Mauritius you … ?» Urquiza Vidal feels his passion increase and simulates be Mauritius Paulina besa and tempts with its hands the face of Urquiza Vidal. Paulina opens his eyes and said. «Urquiza, who come to wake me up.» – «My owner, is his cousin Peek that has come to disrupt the celebrations tonight!» Paulina covers the mouth of Urquiza. – «Don’t say more.»
