Italy is a lovely country. I have been living here for five years now and as if I can never get over the lights, the music and the people. Romanticizing Milan is an insult for theres no city more romantic than my old town Milano. Mutto Bene!, Magnifico!.

Its been a while since I came for a visit to Italy. I can still remember that rainy day when I met her. Its started out with a little conversation, what was that we talked about…uh!. Oh yes, about our stay in Italy. Rain is pouring but my heart was beating faster than the droplets of water that was making her blouse wet and her black colored bra sticking out, literally sticking-out with her breasts seen because her tops unbuttoned its upper three buttons. She didn care for she laughed with my lame jokes about the rain, the people we met while we were walking. I can remember where we were headed but I just knew that she was the girl for me. I am a woman, born and raised in Italy until I reached 15 years old. I needed to go to a dormitory in the states and graduated at Harvard University. Leila was a friend of mine back when I was 12 or 13 years but we grew up together in Italy and had so much fun in our grade school years.

When I went back to Milan to visit and stayed for a month. I saw her while walking to get some milk at a nearby store near my apartment. She just happened to appear right in front of the store and I happened to see her and said hi. Leila said hello and I said hi, we smiled, then, that was it, we hooked up and walked in the rain with our heels on and our skimpy, formal and jackets for cold weather outfits.

I am Marissa and this is my best friend and Is story. Lets just say that Leila is just a friend but we were more than that. When we were in elementary we were close at the hip but when we went our separate ways in high school up until college. We both knew that our friendship was stronger and long lasting than age, distance and gender. Leila made a promise that wherever we are or whoever we are with, we will remain best of friends. And that was so true. When we saw each other again after ten years of so, she was the same Leila or Lei I loved and I was the same Marissa or Sasa she adored back in the days when we were young, innocent and naïve.

Lei hugged me when saw me at the store. I noticed her face was smudged and her eye liner was all melting, I just thought maybe because of the rain. But its like yet the truth was, she just broke up with her long-time boyfriend of eight and they were supposed to meet there but he got caught up and honestly told her he was seeing another girl and is in love with her for many years now. Lei just smiled at me when I asked if shes okay. She was always the smarter one, the famous one and the stronger one in our pool of friends. We were closer than anybody in our circle of friends which made it more nice, since she was always there when I needed her and so was I for her.

When we talked that time, she told me everything and well, since I was studying at Harvard I never thought that she didn finish college and went to work as a secretary at a construction firm in Milan. She didn leave our city and home town, but what she was happy about to see was me and missed me and our friendship. Which I too missed when I left the city and her. That moment when after ten years, we saw each other again, Lei couldn help but hug and kiss me all over my face. I was so happy too since its been a while since a girl kissed me and that was the start of a more serious relationship between Lei and I.

I told her that I didn want to kiss her because she just broke up with her boyfriend, but I will do it because I like her and liked her ever since we were kids. She agreed and smiled at me sweetly. I was never a tomboy and if you look closely, I am a girl and a woman doing what every woman does, wearing make ups, skirts and thongs, going to spas, doing manis and pedis, etc. But inside, I can only love women and the woman I truly desired was Leila. It might sound weird, disgusting or whatever. But I love her and no one can take this feeling away from me, not even my mom who was against me being lesbian and all. But in the long run she fully accepted who I truly was especially when graduated magna cumlaude in my business administration class. I was really doing what I love to do and loving the person who loves me too.

And so I thought. Leila is beautiful and smart but she lacks loyalty and discipline. She wanted more and never got satisfied until I found out that she was with another man in a bar when we were still together. A friend of ours told me on a DM never believed shed do such a thing. But when I heard she got pregnant, then, it was confirmed that she was having an affair when we were still together. I got furious and raged back to her home. I let her stay with her sister because she said she needed time and all. I believed her but I didn know that she was unfaithful to me. When I came to the house she received me with open arms and apologized.
