You all know @Mónica. She lives in South Africa, but she has Portuguese roots. We have been speaking a lot, mostly in Portuguese, and this has made our friendship grow. I wanted so much to meet her. How? I had no portal to South Africa.
One day, she introduced Makayla, her daughter. I asked Makyla if she could help and we checked her interests. There! She had just what I needed for my cheating-distance trip: a portal. She likes to build cute legos that later she puts on the Internet.
Then arrived Gabriella. Speaking with her, I learned she likes to make drawings of people and of realistic things. Another portal!
Lacking no portals at all, I could now think about my visit. That´s exactly what I did. When I arrived, the entire house was admiring a very difficult puzzle. They like doing puzzles as a family activity, but apparently, most of them had given up on this one and only Mónica had the patience to finish it. Her husband, a friendly man I didn´t know before, gave me a welcome gift immediately: he told me he liked Portugal so much, that they were considering living here, later.
This felt like cosy.
Turning to Mónica, I asked her if she had a technique for making puzzles; she´s so good at it! But she smiled and told me patience was her technique. Somehow, that smile made me understand she knew this information had put me out of the game; I´m not patient.
Then Mónica asked her husband and Makyla to show me the garden, while she and Gabriella stayed inside. I started hearing noises of cutlery and crockery clashing. After a while, Gabriella appeared. With a big, happy smile, she stretched out a paper. My special portal! A drawing of my face she had made earlier when I told them about the visit, a portal only I could use!
Mónica, on the other hand, continued inside clashing things. When she came out, she carried a tray with a treat for me: a beautiful china coffee service (I love coffee) and a wonderful chocolate cake (I also love chocolate) Makyla had done especially for my visit. We all sat under the positive tree Mónica had posted about and talked the evening away. She told me her birthday was coming, and I immediately decided to post about my visit after, as a way of thanking her. That moment, a wonderful thing happened: the tree released another heart shaped leaf right in front of us.
The tree was also welcoming me.
Such a special thing had happened, just because I had made friends on Yoors.
