The Date Is Already Decided

A week has elapsed since the vital decision. I am becoming happy as a child again and feeling so alive with anticipation of starting a new life and with the enthusiasm of the incipient adventure. “Today must be the day to buy the flight ticket,” I think joyfully. As soon as I take a shower and gulp a cup of coffee, I hit the street without checking my e-mail inbox because I cannot control my excitement. There is a clear sky without any clouds, and the sunshine is above me as my guardian angel. It seems to me that the bright sun is shining exclusively on me as if the entire universe encouraged me to buy the flight ticket today.

As soon as I enter H.I.S., Mr. Kura recognizes me and offers me a chair to sit down. He greets me with a bright smile spreading on his face, “Mr. Onoe, it’s a pleasure to see you again. Thank you so much for buying flight tickets from us all the time. I remember you bought several flight tickets for China from us. You went there with your Mexican friends, am I right? How was the trip? Did they enjoy it?”

“Yes, it was the one of the best trips in my entire adventures, and they think so, too. They enjoyed exceedingly. Also, I indeed went to Mexico to see them last March, but I didn’t buy the flight ticket here since I couldn’t find a convenient schedule.”

“You went to Mexico again! You are very lucky to have such wonderful friends over there. You’ve been there five or six times already, I guess. Anyway, which country are you going to conquer this time, Mr. Onoe?”

I reply with a joyful smile, “I’m going to Mexico again. I want you to look for the cheapest ticket for me. The date is already decided. I want you to look for it on the November 27.”

He is visibly surprised and asks me curiously, “Mr. Onoe, how long do you intend to stay there on this time? What are you going to do there? Are you taking a vacation again?”

“No, Mr. Kura, this time is not a vacation. I’m going to live in Mexico for a while. My Mexican friends have offered me to come to Mexico to stay with them. I can stay at their houses for gratis as long as I need. Furthermore, they are looking for a job for me over there right now. Frankly, I am not sure if I can find a job over there, but I’ve pondered it over and over, and I’ve finally reached the conclusion: take a risk.”

Start a New Life

Gerardo always signs his name “Gerardo Kent” or “Gerardo Balboa”, because he thinks that he is as innocent as them, as pure as them, and as strong as them. I really do not know how such illusions have come into his head, but this is his affair, so I promised myself that I would be mum about it as long as he is not crazy enough to begin waking up at four every morning to start jogging like Rocky Balboa. And on top of it all, he is younger brother of my good friend Jorgito! Consequently, I can expect anything from a small Mexican prick like him as well.

A couple of days later Crazy Ramon sent me a convivial welcome message:

 

Hey Biatch…!!!

What a fucking surprise, man! Let me apologize for the delay to answer you back because I was out of town. Man, you know, you are my fucking Japanese soul mate, and you can stay at my house all the fucking time you need while you can finish writing your book. Do not forget, bitch, MY APARTMENT IS YOURS. You have to start a new life, man. You have to improve your health and have to stay away from Japan for a while. Also, you have to be striving harder for your dreams come true: Being a writer and living in Vancouver. The good thing is that it will be cheaper and easier for you to go to Vancouver from here. Moreover, I have just sent your resume to some hotels and tourist agencies here in Playa Del Carmen. As soon as I get some information from them, I will let you know. Of course, as God is my witness, it is my duty as a fucking best friend to help you to find a job here or help you whatever shit you need, man.

By the way, we are going to travel to Guadalajara on the December 22 to spend Christmas there, so it will be fucking awesome if you can spend the Christmas with us there. You know, my family likes you very much, and it will be a fucking honor for us to have you on the Christmas in Guadalajara. We are going to return to Playa Del Carmen on the December 28 again, so it will be fantastic if you come with us.

Let me explain to you what the fucking Riviera Maya is, ha-ha-ha. Riviera Maya is composed of more than 350 km of beaches, and all along the Riviera Maya, there are a lot of cities, such as Cancun, Playa Del Carmen, Cozumel, Isla Mujeres, etc. This bunch of cities is called the Riviera Maya.

I think that Jorge is right. It will be easier for you to find a job in Playa Del Carmen, because here are a lot of tourists who speak English and other languages more than in Mexico City, where people only speak Spanish. In conclusion, here are more job opportunities for people who speak English and other languages than Mexico City. I think that you will probably take a month or two months to find a job here. Please do not be in despair. It will take you for a while to find a job because of the season, such as Christmas, New Year, and all these kinds of shits, you know. My brother, please tell me now that you are going to prepare for the anticipation of A BIG JUICY HAIRY BLONDE CUNT for you when you arrive. She is my welcome gift for you, ha-ha-ha! Biatch, you will soon become a BIG BROWN MEXICAN DICK, and you will soon say good-bye to YOUR MILKY JAPANESE DICK, ha-ha-ha! Hope to hear from you soon with big hugs.

Caribbean Cunt Master,

Ramon

Everything Will Be Jake

Next day I received a welcomed letter from Gerardo and a couple of days later, I received welcomed letters from Jorgito and Ramon. They congratulated on my decision, each in their own way. I could not believe that life has changed so dramatically over night. Yesterday morning I was a prisoner, and today I am released from my unnecessary long sentence for which I have not committed any crime, except I have just tried to live my own life according to my heart’s prompting. I still do not comprehend why I have suffered and been tortured for so long, because I do not consider that expressing my true opinions and being a true self all the time are crime; I regard that they are necessary tools to make oneself happy.

Whenever I go to Mexico, I always stay at Gerardo and Jorgito’s house or Ramon’s house. Gerardo is one of my best friends as well. Maybe, he is the most imperative one because he was the beginning of everything. He was the first Mexican who became my friend, although at that time, we could not express our feelings freely in English. Perhaps, our strongest connection that time was that we both had a Brazilian girlfriend. I have a genuine affection toward him as a friend. Here is his congratulated message:

 

Hey, you crazy son of bitch, ha-ha-ha…. It is wonderful news that you are coming to Mexico, and I am truly grateful for your decision, my friend, but you have to know that it is not easy for you to get a job here because of language. Without Spanish, it will be difficult for you to work for a company. I guess that with your English, you can find a job easily, such as at a restaurant, hotel, bar, coffeehouse, etc. In the neighborhood where I am living now, there are a lot of foreigners, so you can find a job around here, I think. However, do not think that you will find a job here very easily and will get paid well, man. I just want you to be aware of the circumstances. Of course, I will try to help you to find a job here and will do my best.

I will be really glad if you really come to Mexico, and you can stay at my apartment as long as you wish. Now I have a roommate, and of course, she is extremely beautiful. I think that you will fall in love with her very quickly, maybe, at the first glance. But she is mine, so don’t you dare to do anything stupid, son of bitch, ha-ha-ha. I am warning you because I know you, Shogo; you are fucking dangerous if it concerns a beautiful vagina, ha-ha-ha. We do not have any furniture at the apartment yet, and I could not talk with her about you, because she is now traveling around Europe, but she is coming back on this Saturday. Do not worry about anything, my friend. Everything will be jake!

Send me your itinerary as soon as you buy a flight ticket, okay? Again, I have to pick up your ass at the airport, son of bitch, ha-ha-ha. See you soon, my friend!

Gerardo Kent

 

Do Not Stray from My True Path

I have made up my mind and become so happy with the sudden prospect of the new adventure. “I have to let my Mexican friends know about my vital decision tonight!” I thought to myself excitedly. I decided to walk instead of taking a train because I was so intoxicated with my unexpected odyssey. While I was walking on my way to home, a beautiful tune of whistling came from my lips. “When on earth is the last time I whistled like that? Ages ago, perhaps?” I thought. As I was passing the train station, I changed my mind to sit down on a bench to smoke and enjoy this fantastic feeling a little more. I lit a cigarette and looked up the sky with bright shining stars. “It is so strange,” I thought, “because normally, I cannot see so many shining stars on autumn sky, but tonight shining stars are congregating above me as though Almighty in heaven decided to celebrate the prospect of my new adventure and decided to make me perceive that He always will look after me if I do not stray from my true path.” With watery eyes, I silently thanked God for being born under the lucky stars. I stood up and started skipping with whistling from sheer joy. While I was on my way home, I was constantly yelling at the unusually beautiful night sky like a happy lunatic, “I will let my Mexican friends know about my vital decision tonight! Thank God, I am feeling so alive!” while snapping my fingers.

Do Not Miss the Opportunity

Furthermore, it is a matter of time, money will be running out, and I will have to take a fucking job again. I have to avoid falling in such a humiliating situation again with all possible considerations. I do not waste my precious time anymore and do not feel isolated anymore. I am not a chip of wood; I am a human being with feelings. Therefore, I sometimes need friends to have a heart to heart talk with! Besides, it is time for me to do something to change my life radically and to do something worthwhile with my life. Maybe, it will be a good idea for me to stay in Mexico with my friends to enjoy my life and ruminate about writing earnestly for a while. But if I cannot find a job over there, what am I going to do? And how long am I able to stay there? Maybe, I have to think about unforeseen problems later. Yes, just go there and worry about them later! Can’t you see the bright side of your future? Think about how lucky you are, idiot! How many people on this earth are lucky enough to be offered such a wonderful proposal and how many people on this planet are lucky enough to have such wonderful friends: a few. You are a lucky bastard, Shogo! All my friends want me to write my book and help me to achieve my goal. The rest is depending on you. Yes, I want to go to Mexico! I must go there to change my miserable life into happy life, a chapter of my new life. I will learn a little Spanish, perhaps? It does not matter whether I can find a job or whether I can start writing my book over there; the most important thing is that I should not miss this golden opportunity. I do not know whether I will be offered such a wonderful proposal in the future; it might be my last chance. Yes, what are you waiting for? Are you afraid of taking a risk? What risk? You have been already doomed here, idiot! Mexico is your last option to escape from the inferno! Just make up your mind and do not miss the opportunity!
