My category ‘Pictures & Stories’ are posts with me writing a fictional, creative short story about a picture.
No soy Rickey –
It was before the time of him, the one that many thought was the other. On the street, crowds would surround the one and the response would be “es él”. The response would be “No, no!”, and the one would be swiftly taken and moved away. The other sites and locations would always be the same for the one that many thought was the other. And the usual “es Rickey” would be shouted and followed by the common response “I am not Rickey.” Did they not understand the time was not right, his time had already passed and how could he be young again to be there again at that age?
A decade has passed, he was older, but the one was younger and it could not be him, the one. Still the crowd grew and shouted “Sabemos que es usted!” The one’s response firmly was “no, no se no es él, soy yo.”
But wait, why was the one’s response in Spanish and not English? Could it be, that he the one was the other? No, no podía ser!
