A story included in the anthology Tu nombre flotando en el adiós: Nueve historias autobiográficas de amores frustrados (Your Name Floating in the Air: Nine Autobiographical Stories of Frustrated Love. Nuria Barrios, Mario Delgado Aparaín, José Manuel Fajardo, Mempo Giardinelli, Alicia Giménez-Bartlett, José Ovejero, Antonio Sarabia, Luis Sepúlveda and Horacio Vázquez-Rial – authors known for their works of fiction – are faced with the challenge, on this occasion, of delving into the memories of their own reality without the protective mask of fiction. They reveal their own most personal failures in love: a heartrending impossible love, a secret passion, the metaphorical infatuation of an adolescent, an intense passion full of fleeting suspicions, a condemned marriage, a misunderstanding, a deceitful love, a guilty love, and a cowardly love.
