Isaan and Moyna had been living from their early years almost been glued to each other, and yet did not know each other.
They were born two years apart she went to an all-girls school and he to an all-boys school separated by a wall, And it was so diverse the number of children who were on all sides of the wall making it difficult they knew each other, even being so close
When I say wall I mean that literally since girl´s school was on top of the wall, and The wall was high about ten meters high, and the boy´s school was down the wall, and
they'd grow up on all sides without knowing each other.
Even had same friends but remained unknown.
Yunai´s sister, a friend of Isaan showed interest on Isaan. And as this was Moyna´s friend must have told her, but Moyna did not pay much attention to her. Isaan would be someone more in the darkness of Madrid of the seventies, nevertheless this should've been the first news of Isaan's existence for Moyna, but not the last.
In these circumstances could be said that Isaan and Moyna were living together, almost stuck but separated by a wall in the time, but almost stuck in the space, and is that two people can live almost stuck even to ten meters of distance and not seen each other.
The time is indispensable in order that two people just meet, if two people cross his eyes that means that they have met in the space and in the time.
The space though it´s of three dimensions can be simplified in one dimension, would therefore be two variables; space and time, that in case of Moyna and Isaan, in spite of being very nearby, It couldn´t do that theirs pupils were crossed.
The life in the school was arduous for both, since they didn't know that society outside the wall of both schools was painful enough, nevertheless they had the habit of complaining.
The relationship of both with their classmates was unbeatable, but even so they were keeping a distance with them. They were intelligent, and the envy always exists, moreover they both wanted to go further that their fellow students, and indeed they got further.
Even so everything that surrounded the life of Isaan and moyna was disgusting, everything was perfectly studied in order that both went ahead with that kind of life
that seemed to the destiny had marked them...
And that in the end was a deception, It was like an ornament that it was removed and that it was put as if it was a macabre game, in fact they felt integrated when they were conversing briefly with a beggar with a policeman or with some armed bandit of good heart far from that world where they were the figures of a perfect family image.
The fathers of one and other were doing everything possible in order that they were the best at almost everything, The priests and nuns of both colleges also were treating they were the best, but one false move and they were leaving them in the gutter, as if they were a couple of dolls of rag.
The parents, priests and nuns who were guiding the destiny of both were real bureaucrats and economists with few sensibility of which ones it was not possible to expect for anything, the only exception were their mothers.
Even great part of the indirect relatives of both were a bunch of nuts, that somehow
they did not have fault of anything, since they already had enough, for what it was not possible to wait for anything of them either. They were accomplices of that history as well as Isaan and Moyna were, In spite of not being fullly conscious of it.
The time passed sometimes quick, other times slowly, but more rapid than slow, the school years were passing one after another, so much from side to side of the wall, both did not have problems with the passage of the school years, but Isaan and Moyna wanted to forget these walls of both schools to discover the world beyond those walls.
Could be said that they had been living stuck for ten years, But nothing presaged a meeting.
Although statistically yes there was chances for a meeting.
He was pretty good at soccer and he was the titular goalkeeper of the team of his life.
He kept in mind how good it felt thw first day that got accepted to play in his team and to train with his team-mates, with the team shield and it´s colours that occupied the whole wall in front of the wall where he training... It was the team of his dreams since he was five years old and was an important achievement.
It was a great luck to fight against the opponent of correct form is a balsam against the loneliness and it helps forge a character, also in a team that was yours.
In fact he had a great responsibility in his team, and it is that if you play n the team that you have dreamed since you were five years old, the people start seeing you as a dreamer that has obtained his dream, those type of dreams are dangerous,
