His name is Roy, that black guy from Rotterdam, who’s drinking a large glass of Coke on the couch. Gee, those hands! His big, strong fingers easily enclose the glass. He had asked for a straw, as his thick, African were not made to drink out of glasses.
I stare at him. He notices it and winks. His glass is empty now and Roy knocks on the couch, a gesture that I should sit next to him. Nervously I obey. He looks at me. I look back, into his almond-shaped eyes and earth brown irises. They show me sorrow. I wonder what this young African has experienced in his life. Roy went his gaze.
