Memoirs of a Geisha

None of us find much kindness in this life, as
we should.

Hi, both kinds please.
My children wait for these every Spring.
Now I am a Geisha too.
So you are.

How did you come by such surprising eyes?
My mother gave them to me.
Generous of her wasn't it?

As you have been to me.
Smile for me won't you?
There now, that is your gift to me.
This will buy your supper.
Now promise me something,

Next time you take a tumble,
no frowns.

That's better.
In that moment I changed from a girl, facing
nothing but emptiness…

… to someone with purpose I saw that to be a Geisha
could be a stepping stone…

… to something else - a place in his world.
