Magical Encounter

Vacations are coming, a full week, free from daily chores and the daily stress that overwhelms my life. This time, I received an invitation from a childhood friend who now lives in a small town in Spain, she told me in a video call that she is about to get married and wants to meet with her closest friends to help her plan things for the wedding, of course, I could not refuse, since she is like a sister to me, plus I have several years without seeing her and honestly a trip to the European continent would not be bad for me.

After a long flight of more than 10 hours in a modern plane, I arrived at Barajas airport in the city of Madrid, there is the first thing I did was sit down to eat a good Spanish-style breakfast and ask for a large cup of coffee to regain strength before continuing my adventure, when I left the passenger area my dear friend Carolina was already waiting for me with a bright smile that did not hide her excitement to meet me again. I was also very happy to be able to hug her after such a long time and delay us more, we walked quickly to her car to talk while we still took advantage of the sunlight to take the 2-hour drive to the remote agricultural settlement where she currently lives.

When we were already quite advanced on the road chatting about old times, Carolina told me that we should make a stop in a gypsy village where her grandmother lived, so she could meet me, which made me curious, since I had never met anyone from this culture. Still, I had always heard many legends about their tendencies to be very close to ancestral magic.

When we arrived at the place, it was not what I imagined, the supposed village was nothing more than a few carts in a vast expanse of land where they grow grapes for wine production. A sweet old lady of more than 90 years old gave us a warm welcome and received me with as much pleasure as if I were one of her granddaughters, they are very kind and cordial people who invited us to spend the night with them so that we would not take the lonely road in the dark.

After a majestic dinner with fresh country products and a delicious baked chicken, the grandmother invited us to the outskirts to warm up in a bonfire, where she put water to boil between the burning logs while in front of us, she began to elaborate a handmade coffee grinding the beans on a stone with a wooden roller letting the magnificent aroma of a high-quality bean that surely they cultivated organically, like everything in this place, where you could feel the magic of being in direct contact with nature.

I think that this was perhaps the tastiest coffee I have ever tasted in my life, it had just the right amount of everything, but the most spectacular thing is that they never brewed it, only the grandmother boiled the powder with water and waited for it to settle, and then served us with a wooden spoon in the cups made with the shell of a fruit that looked like the wood of a coconut. When I finished drinking the beverage, leaving some coffee powder at the bottom, the old woman took it out of my hand and turned it over on a white cloth she had already prepared, as she began to pray in the gypsy language.

My friend took me by the hand and asked me not to be afraid, it was her way of thanking me for the visit and a great honor, the fact that the leader of the tribe used her ancestral strength to read the future in the traces of my coffee, something with which I felt flattered, and I was ready to pay the most incredible attention to everything she told me.

As a way of proving to me that this was not a game, first she began to tell me things about my recent life, simply impossible for me to know since not even my friend knew them. Then with a smile she took my hand and began to talk to me about the future, many hopeful things came out of that magical reading, in the twilight illuminated only by the dying flames of a bonfire.

However, what caused me the most impact was the idea that he told me had been fixed in my mind for a long time without coming to fruition, but that he assured me would come true in the coming months, that visit would be the beginning of a new path that would bring me to progress within the European continent, as he told me, I was destined for great things and for that I had to emigrate from the country where I was currently living, In doing, so I would have the opportunity to grow in the tourist environment, in his vision, I would be the owner of a thriving business related to the attention to people who would come from all over the world to drink coffee and enjoy the great desserts that I would make, that premonition filled me with great joy and I hope that it really comes true.

    The Hive Gamification Proposal
     11 months ago  

    Your visit with Carolina's grandmother provided you with the best cup of coffee of your life... but also with the knowledge that there is a lot of work ahead of you. Awesome to know ahead of time that it will all work out though, if only we all got that gift during a big change!

    Clever writing.jpg

    Hi happy afternoon, yes really that was the best coffee my main character could have and that's what I wanted to reflect even in the images I searched for my story, I think the same as you, how nice that gift would be in real life.

    Yay! 🤗

    You have the uncanny ability to bring scenes to life with your visualising descriptive writing. I loved the scene with the grandmother and how effortlessly you transitioned from the mundane to the magical. Sweet, sentimental story.

    Hello happy Monday afternoon, I was in love with this post, yes the scene with the grandmother was one of the best for me, perhaps because I miss mine who is no longer on this plane, thank you for those beautiful words I will continue to do my best to bring good stories to this great community.

    Wow, @flywithmarlin - This was my first read for the day and you made my morning feel magical. The scenes you created were beautiful and you took me on a real cultural experience. Everything was imaginable and believable and I felt transported to Spain enlightened by old traditions.
    Outstanding👏🙌
