She was in my dream 32 Comments

ethiopian table cloth

It was no surprise that I would dream of a person I had seen only twice. Magical moments and surprise stunners of beauty and kind hearts are meant to be dreamt.

So this time, I had dreamt of a beautiful lady whom I’ve fancied quite a bit. I still remember the very first moment I saw her. It was around 6 months ago in the hot summer of 2007 at a casual friends’ BBQ gatherings. She was a new face to all of us; and fairly a new comer to the western culture. But not new enough to feel out of place.

I remember the first time I noticed her laughing. She laughes as if it’s the last time she will ever laugh again, and she smiles everytime she talks and listens. I was mesmerized and caught in between wonders of where this young beautiful creature had fallen from.

Fast forward…six months later…,

I was exhausted, beat up and eagerly in the mood for a good night sleep when I suddenly heard of a mobile phone ring. It was mine; therefore, I must pick it up.

Tiredly, I reached out to the phone, my voice barely able to come out of its sac:

Hi, she said.

Hearing her voice from a mile away put a simple & sincerely-humble smile all over my face.
Hi, I said softly…

But dreams have a strange way of taking from places to places within a lightening speed”

Next thing I know, I’m in my car idle outside her apartment, and this stunningly beautiful lady is walking to enter.

There you are, I said, and opened the door… kissed her on her nose…closed the door, and walked around the back of the car and entered through the driver side.

Wooy, Betam Neaw Yerabegn, she said.

I know just what you need I replied….

But then somehow, I couldn’t help but admire her beauty. She was wearing a tight jeans and a short sleeved pink sweater. Fluffing her hair lightly on her upper shoulders, she put on a sunglass.

You look amazingly beautiful, I said to her.
Oh thanks! She smiled. But I kept looking at her … “girl you amaze me!” said it only in silence. Strange!! I buckled my seat belt soon after I buckled hers.

Dreams don’t give us warnings when hopping from one location to the other, they just happen when they do”

But now, we’re sitting with our back against a concrete that prevented the beach sand from escaping to the streets. Ocean breeze lightly running cool on both our face, and our toes buried in the sand, I began to feed her of a food that was most dearly to the both of us. Injera! I would take a small portion, dip into every stew, grab a few of the veggies and kindly put it into her mouth.

I could certainly tell she was hungry, so I didn’t hold anything back….

I fed her, and fed her and fed her and fed her more….

But the stupid alarm cranked up the FM radio in my bedroom and woke me out of my heavenly heaven.

I was happy, yet mad. I wished to dream it again.

Dedicated to the girl I see in shooting stars!”

    sand from escaping to the streets

    And I know its a dream and everything but for me there is something un romantic about Injera.

    I am glad you are back though .

    Chelema: Solid attempt, but the senses were not tantalized! I guess that’s Ethio romance for you – no matter where it takes place (in real life or in la la land), we seem restrained some how. Even w/ all the “gurshas“, one is often left unfulfilled. I wonder why? Anyhow, at least you wrote something & nothing wrong w/ that. Good try. I’m just disappointed there was no ye’kwanta firfir – as every one who has ever gone out to eat w/ an habesha girl knows, they have to order that unfortunate concoction.

    Winta: How about Gen’fo? Would that have made your heart skip a beat & your body shiver all over? ha ha… Not everyone dreams of strawberries & chocolate girl… I’m sure they dream of chop-sticks in China ;) So give the Nightwalker a break & let the man have his fantasy.

    BTW the “therefore” killed me… seems to be used (rather abused) a lot in Addis.

    You made it again ..the Quanta firfir is really really funny …ha ha ha…Bozena shiros tebileh atawukim :) Or typical ye Habesha date take her to sidist kilo anbessa Gibi and order six bombolino with tea…I know that sound like a horror movie:)

    Moving on U’R very right about therefore

    Ene enkuan its not Gen’fo …I would have been crushed with Kinche :)

    Gin seriously I love injera and everything but its not romantic at all …I think it must be the colour that puts me off :)

    Okey Kill me

    Hi, good clause, you put up even so if you don’t mind I’d bring few comments about approaching young women or guys. Especially it can be hard when it follows to man woman relationships. The essential thing is your attitude, which should be attached and active. If you have an posture like that, any person shouldn’t encounter any troubles that you have addressing as presenting. When you get a conversation, you normally want to ask safe doubts that are sure not to cause her any soreness. Once the conversation gets some momentum, you can take more physical queries. A good magic is to learn some interrogations she made a point of so whenever the conversation decelerates, you can raise one of these questions.

    Hi good post. I imagine these hints might be structural overly. Now the good pick up notes are the ones that flatter the woman. At Present roughly of the lines might just be in all genuine fun to help break the ice. That is solid and it can at last lead to finishing in make love with her at the end of the night. Heck what man doesn’t want that, but familiar what to articulate and how to pull it off can take a bit of practise. A rattling pick up draw will make you in the door but from there you have to be capable sufficient to hold the conversation working.

    It could have aided dilute not just racism as is taking place now but also homophobia. The guy has a lot more talent than any other idol I’ve observed. He places inside a 100% effort into all his performances unlike Kris.
