Cuento de buenas noches

By: Ivan Caballero 03 | 04 | 2013
Una tarta pascualina reposa en el fondo del mostrador del bar Muy Migas. El estómago vacío de Pedro rugiendo cual salvaje leon. Hoy no come.

Patricia ha tenido un día increíble, la cita con Pablo fue perfecta, y en una mesa del fondo del mismo bar, con un chocolate caliente entre las manos, recuerda con detalle los últimos besos de la noche anterior.

Elena sacude las migas de su falda, de la recién devorada madalena, y sale corriendo a su reunión con la empresa HAL para tratar uno de esos temas tan y tan importantes que últimamente la mantienen tan ocupada. Ese trabajo hace que olvide constantemente las cosas más importantes, entre ellas dar de comer a su gata Antonia, el cumpleaños de su incondicional María y hoy su bolso, en la primera mesa del bar.

Pedro deseoso de tener 3 Euros, mira inquieto a su alrededor, quizás una moneda (o mejor billete) cayó, o algún resto habrá en alguna bandeja... Sus ojos no creen lo que ven, un bolso rojo, le saluda desde la mesa que tiene más cerca. No parece ser de nadie, y va tomando la forma de tarta.. Se acerca a él, son ya 4 meses desde que se acabó su subsidio, 7 los quilos que ha perdido, y 9 los días que faltan para tener que recurrir él y su familia, a servicios sociales. Solo tres Euros, un trozo de tarta, no pasa nada...

Una mano le toca la espalda, sudor frío, temblores y un nudo en la garganta. Al girarse, la sonrisa de una desconocida: Patricia, con un gran pedazo de Tarta en la mano y un gran café con leche.

- Tome señor, me encantaría compartir este pedazo de tarta con usted - un vuelco en el corazón, una sonrisa cómplice, una moneda con mucha historia y muchísima emoción.

Elena va a sacar su tableta de luces en la tenebrosa HAL, cuando cae en la cuenta de que no la acompañan ni ella ni su bolso. Esa madalena la despistó, sí, fue culpa de la madalena. Y del chocolate fundido... Enfadada y roja, maldiciéndose otra vez, sale corriendo de la reunión imaginando lo peor, cuando un hombre la acecha en el pasillo y le entrega su bolso. Se para el tiempo, ¿qué ha pasado?, ¿dónde estoy? ¿quién es ústed?

- Alguien que cree en un mundo mejor - Responde Pedro.

Se abraza a ese desconocido, y salen juntos de ese lugar que la ha tenido tanto tiempo ocupada y despistada. Se le entrega una moneda, ¿seguirá la cadena?
