End of Story

Once I told the story of how I pawned my sweet-sixteen pink pearl necklace to buy a man a train ticket home to his lover. But maybe it didn’t happen exactly like that. Maybe he had earned enough during that summer playing guitar in Roman nightclubs to pay his own way. Maybe I sold my pearls much later for medicine, after he left, when I got really really sick.
