Son—dijo a secas sentandose y poniendole la mano sobre el hombro---hubo un momento de silencio—Robert lo vio con cara de preocupacion—I have been investing in your education because I have big plans for you, you are my only son and I believe in you—dijo seriamente haciendo sentir a Robert peor que cucaracha—I hope that, whatever you are doing, you stop it right now before it is too late I want to speak to you alone, please, father I really don’t want to do that, I came from England because everybody; me, your mother, including your friends are worry about you…don’t let me down, son I insist, can we can talk in private, let me invite you to have dinner or a drink, please!

Drew— Alo?, baby we are waiting for you, is everything ok? Yes, babe, listen…I can’t have lunch with you and your family today Why? Are you ok? Yes, my father is here, I’m having lunch with him Oh my god, don’t worry Robert, I know that you have a lot to talk to him, when did he come? I don’t know, he is coming now, I have to leave you, love you..bye Ok, dad, let me take you to the crab, is a fine restaurant, you’ll like it Ok, I am leaving tomorrow, I hope we can solve this Of course dad, where are you staying? I just came from the airport, I don’t know, any suggestions?—Robert se sintio presionado a pedirle que se quedara en su apartamento, titubeo un momento--Stay at my place---Robert solo deseaba que le dijera que no… Ok Well here it is---El valet parking se llevo el porche de Robert y ellos entraron en un restaurante muy elegante, esperaron a ser sentados por la hostess que los ubico en una mesa con vista a la avenida So, do you like this place? Yes, it is nice…what do I have to know? Straight to the point, as always –dijo Robert con voz de resignacion--- I am in love dad---prosiguio seriamete---I had never talked to you about girls because nothing was worth it, now is different I see, she is so different that you are loosing your mind, missing clases, loosing weight…what kind of woman is she? I know she is older than you, and that she came from central america and that she was your teacher!, come on Robert, ilusion is something different than love. You are a wealthy young man, you are only 26 you have the world ahead you! Do you plan to be stocked with an older woman? Are you out of your mind Dad please, it is not what it seems, I really care about her, her name is Ellen and she is not that old…she is 35. You always told me that love has nothing to do with age, right? My mother is 18 years younger than you, so? Please let me introduce her to you, she is amazing, you will love her… she is divorced too, in case you don’t know it, she used to be bitted by her husband… I met him ---en ese momento quiso contarle a su padre todo lo que habia sucedido pero callo--You met him and what?...listen son, all I ever wanted for you, is you to be happy, you don’t have to have those kind of problems, I was young too, I made a lot of mistakes and I don’t want you to be involved in a bad relationship, you have to live a lot more, you deserve a single young and professional girl, someone that you can take her out of her parent’s house, to get married Sorry dad, but that is stupid, with all respect _-dijo arrepintiendose--- I know that the IDEAL is a VIRGIN WOMAN, but I want and love this woman so much. I bought a tiket to go to uk next week, I was planning to go and talk to you, cause I think I don’t need your money anymore – el padre de Robert lo vio con sorpresa What are you talking about? What will you do? I don’t feel ok having your money dad, I want to work and make my own money You have never going to make enough money to live the way you are living I know, that’s why I want to start now How about university I am planning to keep my scolarship Think about what you are saying, son, it is not easy to work and study at the same time Ellen is living with me –dijo Robert viendolo a los ojos – en ese momento el sr.Robert se tomo de un sorbo el vino tinto que tenia en su copa, suspiro y vio con la mirada perdida a la ventana—I want you to rent me the apartment, dad Ok son---empezo Robert---it is a little beat shocking for me, all this information, I know that you are not a kid anymore but my obligation was to tell you what I think…I want to meet her, I hope you are doing right son, but please, don’t leave college. Education is the most important thing for you right now; about the money, I don’t know what to say, I wish I could keep helping you You can, dad, but in a different way. Maybe you want to invest with me in some kind of project, what do you think? Slow down, son, what kind of project? I mean, have you been thinking about something –dijo Robert emocionado y mostrando interes— Excuse me gentlemen, are you ready to order? ---dijo la mesera esperando al lado de ellos de pie Yes..we are ready ---dijo Robert viendo a su padre—I know that you like king crab, can we order some to share? –pregunto Robert Sure son, but first, give us a bottle of Don Perignon, please ---dijo robert papa Right away,sir—contesto la mesera Ok, dad I was thinking about open an English pub here, a small one, then comercialize franchises of it ---dijo Robert con miedo a la reaccion de su padre que permanecio en silencio—I wanted to go to uk to bring some ideas and manage it with Ellen, she has experience in managing restaurants and bars and she wants to invest in that, too Is she going to invest “money” –pregunto Robert Yes, so it will be a business that will let me study and work at the same time –Robert suspiro
