Helga was German and black. She was muscular yet agile and we shared our friendship with others. She was mine for seven years. We went to the cafe together.
We went on holidays together, along with friends and family.
We played together. She hardly ever fell apart. But I hurt her, badly, physically.
And now she is gone.
But now I’ve got a new friend, Gabriella. She’s Italian. We met on the internet but I haven’t seen her yet. She arrives on Tuesday when we’ll meet for the first time.
So before she arrives I just want to say to Helga – Aufwiedersehen Pet.
Haha! Oh that has made me laugh! Looking forward to meeting her this week, I bet she will be beautiful!
