My Jamaica Vignette # 1: The Flying African

“Professor Nngurah, good afternoon sir, this is Claudia.

A Flying African came to me asking for you Professor.

She is tall with thick strong limps, her long legs that I assume are well toned beneath her sand coloured cotton slacks. Her skin is a smooth blue black, her tightly coiled hair is cropped short. Eyes are big bright and black. Her lips are well formed, brown with pink, her lips moved to reveal small evenly spaced teeth. Her accent is indistinguishable. She is unsmiling, serious in her queries. She carries a messenger bag made of a soft brown leather that is stuffed with paper. Her sandals appear to be made of the same leather as the bag.  

She fell from the sky.

She came from the sky.

She says she needs to talk to you Professor.

Please call me back at 876-***-****. Thank you.”
