Tears and Sweet Whispers 8The word "afternoon" has many interesting meanings. For example, is the step between the day which is finishing and the other that is starting. Also, if someone cries when the night is coming, some interesting things happens
The sun was fading away in Copacabana and a lot of red and blue macaws were singing "Good Night Rio Belo". Is known for years the macaw families always did beautiful flying performances in the morning and in the afternoon. Blue, green, yellow and red are the main colors, but with the afternoon sun, those change into a full palete of pretty colors that fades between purple and orange.
And orange was Nico, who was looking the other birds. The sunlight was changing the colors of his feathers, he didn't cared much until that moment "A friend...came with me..." He felt something was starting to break inside him. "Ok, it's over" he said and left the place he was...
The days passed without any general differences, except for Nico, who stopped seeing Pedro. "He doesn
Tears and Sweet Whispers 7Pedro and Nico were sitting on the roof of a two-story building next to the workshop of Luiz, watching the sky, something Nico always loved, but with Pedro, it was better.
"Beautiful night, eh goldie?" Pedro said
"Yeah, pretty nice."
"I always wanted to know what's the moon made of "
"Sorry, dumb answer"
"Why? Actually I'm hungry "
At their feet, the city was moving slowly, it's shiny lights were like spring party. Pedro slowly hugged Nico and said in whispers:
"I have to tell you something." Pedro told Nico looking at his eyes
"Tell me. I really want to know."
"Nico, I I really "
"Pedro, Pedro tell me "
"Nico, I I lo "
*End of the dream*
"Damn! Why can't you tell me!" Nico got up frustrated about his broken dream.
"Tell you what?" It was Pedro outside the hollow
"Holly !" He thought and went out of the nest and to the door. "Hi Pedro. What are you doing here?"
"Listen, I have to tell you something " The cardinal said
Tears and Sweet Whispers 6"So, tell me more." The owl said to Nico
"Well, it's been a while I'm thinking on him, I don't do anything more than dreaming and dreaming we are together, and it's painful, I just can't stop."
"And you don't know if he thinks on you too?"
"That's the problem. I don't know even if he cares I'm alive"
"You know, someone once said, that although the person remains in silence, the soul is screaming very hard "
"Who said that?"
"Let's put in this way: I had a crush on a friend for some long time ago. And one day, I knew he loved me too, but a long time passed and I had to move here before I could confess him."
The owl landed in the branch that was above Nico's hollow, and he went down the big bird.
"Thanks for the fly. But, that's really sad. How you could bear it?"
"Really, as a feckin' hell! I just can't stand it." The owl was wiping the tears from his eyes while Nico was starting to feel very bad. Unconsciously, Nico hugged Digtic as much as he could; as the
Tears and Sweet Whispers 5"What did you say? Bird in your life? So you love Pedro? Alright, I've picked the wrong target."
Nico slowly opened his eyes to see the owner of the voice, for his own surprise, it was a red and yellow owl.
"Don't worry, I won't hurt you. Birds aren't in my diet, and especially if they are friends of my friends, or for shorter, my friends."
"Thank you for not eat me. But do you know Pedro?" Nico asked
"Yes, I know him from the fly we took from Fortaleza. He came to Rio after visiting his parents and he came with a cousin, Isabella "
"I know, I know. I'm his friend, well, nearly brothers. My name's Nico."
"Nice to meet you Nico. I'm Nicolás, but everybody calls me DigTic."
"For the tic of digging?"
"Not really. A bad experience with humans and a cockatoo. I was afraid that the toucan who was with the blue macaws would betray me and I had to return to a cage."
"Oh, so you worked with them?"
"No, I was caught. I escaped, and nearly I was captured again. Luckly, I could save
Tears and Sweet Whispers 4Rafael had to go early to see his family, so the rest of the day, the duo was showing the city of Rio to Isabella. She was dazzled by the colors and the wonders of the city, so much, she even accidentally entered into one of the shops and almost was caught by one of the employees. Luckly, Pedro knew some tricks to deal with angry people and five minutes later, the three were again in Ipanema, laughing about the face of the man when Pedro was chasing him.
The end of the day was coming, and Nico felt that the pain in himself was slightly disappearing. He was wondering if there was a possibility that his dreams could be true. And also he was thinking "What the heck? This isn't the end, just look how together we were all this time "
Nico said goodbye to the others and went to his home to have a rest after that great day. Well, it wasn't so awesome, but he couldn't complain that he had a great fun with his friends. He was so happy his biggest fear almost disappeared that he fell asleep
