Cairo, Egypt: and a tale of the unforgettable girl at the Garden City Club

Who is she? I asked the waiter.

I don't know, he replied.

Is she famous? I whispered.

I really don't know, he said, looking flustered.

Well, surely someone here must know, I said, persistent.

But the waiter just looked at me mutely.

I felt sorry for him then. But I couldn't help my questions.

You see, there was something about her eyes.  They were so, well.... mesmerizing.

She was unforgettable really.

I wished (well, it was almost obscene)

that she were mine.
