I asked a cigarette and let him light it for me. And then I expressed my feeling, “It was the awful night for us, and I’m sincerely sorry for you; nevertheless, I was lucky, since I did not see my loved one’s unfaithful act with my own eyes; on the other hand, you saw Maria kissing. And to cap it all, you were dating with her that night. I’m sorry, but it was so preposterous. By the way, I thoroughly understand why Clarissa kissed another guy; it was kind of my fault, you know….”

“What are you insinuating, Shogo? Stop idolizing Clarissa, since she cheated on you. Did you listen to what I just told you? You were cheated, my friend!”

“No, no, Gerardo, you don’t understand anything,” I was shaking my head. “It was completely my fault, for I left her in the vulnerable position at the first place. She asked me to stay in Vancouver, but I went to Montreal. Hence, she felt so forlorn. Her loneliness caused her to act in the impromptu fashion, so to speak – it was natural behavior. Any psychologists can prove it, and I have a big heart enough to understand it. I take every responsibility on my shoulders for her action like a man.”

“Oh my God! Are you nuts? Shogo, please wake up and stop raving, I beg you,” he was wringing his right hand deprecatingly and went on, “no, my friend, you’re delusional. I don’t want you to feel bad, but I have to tell you the fact. She wasn’t pure, as you think. And it was not after Montreal, my friend, it was before Montreal.”

“Son of bitch, stop lying to me!” I cried out. “I know it was after Montreal; otherwise, she never dared to kiss another guy!”

“No, you’re fatally wrong, my friend. You’re still in fool’s paradise. I’m right – it was before Montreal. I remember it vividly and will never forget it, since that night was indeed our first date after Maria officially became my girlfriend. Sorry, my friend.”
