Why did I come to Canada?! Part 26 of 27

A few days later I was still in so much pain and with a huge bump on my forehead. I had enough money to move out so I called my friend Antonio to see if he could help me find a room to rent. We checked many places and found a nice room that was going to be available on Saturday. I couldn’t believe it a place of my own at last. I talked to Moe and thanked him for letting me stay at his place. I offered to give him some money but he refused to take it. I gave him the money anyway, it was only fair.

Saturday arrived; I was thrilled to be moving out. I was trying to find Marven’s phone number but I couldn’t find it and Moe was no where to be found. Sasha had a car so she helped me move and bought me a couple of home appliances.
There I was finally out of Moe’s house…. I just needed to work a bit more so that I could have enough money to go back to the states.

I didn’t see Marven for a while and was too busy and tired to look for him. I thought that maybe it was better this way.

A friend of mine wanted to hook me up with a friend of hers. She told me that he was an older man but very wealthy and distinguished. I wasn’t too thrilled about him being older but I decided to give it a shot. I wanted to meet him in at starbucks just in case the date turns bad, I could quickly drink my coffee and leave.

The date wasn’t going too bad but I could see that we had no chemistry. He wasn’t an ugly guy but nothing that I was attracted to. He was very refined, educated and polite. He even brought a gift (my friend told him that I was a fan of Andrea Bocelli) so he gave me 2 of Andrea Bocelli’s cd's and another cd of various opera singers. He asked me if I wanted to go to Niagara Falls. I have never been to Niagara Falls before. I agreed because I really wanted to go and he wasn’t a bad person to be around.

He drove for a few hours and we finally got there. He took me to a very nice restaurant. I was asked by the waiter what kind of wine I wanted (I had no idea about wines but I vaguely remembered from living in California “pink zinfandel”) it was a nice fruity wine. Dinner was great and I was very interested in everything he had to say. He asked if I was interested in spending the nigh there (umm hell no, I am not about to give it up to this man!) I told him that we should get back to the city. We went back and took a walk through downtown .At the end of the date he asked me what I wanted from life and what did I think of this date. I did not expect him being so straight forward but I appreciated that. I told him that I wanted to go back to the States and to finish college but after that I wasn’t sure (didn’t answer his questions about the date.I couldn’t tell him that we had no chemistry). He said that he wanted to get married (hmm… I didn’t want to marry at all) and talked about his business plans etc.

He totally knew that we were not right for each other. We said our goodbyes and I spoke to him a couple of times later, he asked me if I needed help in going back to the states but I was doing much better plus I felt uncomfortable taking money from him.
