Kevin couldn’t resist las señoritas. While vacationing in Mexico City he met Alicia del Flores.
“I adore men with blue eyes and yellow hair,” she said with a smile bright enough to light up an entire football field.
Every night he took her to a new café or theater.
“I wish you had a car,” she whispered in his ear, sending shivers through him. “My feet hurt from all this walking.”
All too soon Kevin’s vacation ended. He embraced her. “Will you marry me?”
He quit his job in Kansas, sold his house and bought a one way ticket to Mexico.
Heart pounding, diamond in hand, he knocked on her door. Her brother opened it. “Kevin? ¿Por qué?”
“I’m here to claim Alicia.”
“She married Roberto the taxi cab driver last Sunday.”
“She promised to wait.” Tears streaming, Kevin sank down on the porch. “At least she has transportation.”
