Ana Luisa Guzman: "... not have to look for love, but to find it"
Hugo, a night-guard at a bank brakes on a Saturday night into a house for the money and jewels, discovered by the lonely wife Ana. Pulling his gun he wants the hidden money. Cautious she obeys, both disturbed by the cry of her daughter, both rushing upstairs. While the mother soothes her daughter Hugo makes behind the mother funny faces that the child smiles. In the kitchen Hugo, hungry, starts preparing a meal, later chilaquiles (the Mexican traditional dish) for them both. When hearing who she is he forgets the gun and everything else, moves beside her, ... asking about her radio program. "Go away, you came to steal not to stay" she says. But Paula wants more, showing her mother that he "fixed my teddy bear." Then the door bell and back is the gun. The neighbor. Hugo: "By the window, tell them you can't open." Ana speaks with Milly; on the floor beside her her daughter with Hugo and the gun. Milly knows that the husband is away, comforting her. Later he whistles the 'danzon' she played last week in her program, sometimes dancing for herself. Hugo: "That's a sin, the 'danzon' is to be danced with a partner." "Yes, but not everyone knows how to dance that music." And she: "It's funny there are things we always want to do and only God knows why we don't do them." Then it is time to leave: "Anything else?" "The sugar bowl, you know, it was my mother's".
Next morning at her work: "Did you dance? I hope you did, but with a partner because dancing alone is a sin. That is what someone whom I'll never forget told me. Dear friend, thank you for telling me that. Thank you for telling me that one does not have to look for love, but to find it. It's time to finish. Any plans for this weekend? Some will go out on holiday, some on business like always. I'll stay at home ... alone ... with a bolero. I will not lock the door on Saturday night ... in case someone wants to come to dance with me. Finally, the only one thing he could steal would be my heart.
How many have listened and will visit her?
