Manhattan woman mystery

Every time I pass by Rockefeller Center I think of Chloe. She's the only daughter of a very wealthy industrialist of the old sort, the kind that built this city in the 30s but are now long gone. He wasn't around much when she was little and tried to compensate for it when the battles were already lost and it was too late for excuses. She doesn't talk much about it but I know it still hurts her. She always wanted to be a daddy's girl and she would have been fantastic at it, sometimes I think it's the only thing she's ever been missing.

The upside to it is that she can spend endless days with me in a city far across the wasteland, away from her family in Los Angeles, without being accused of running away. Sunday afternoon we're chasing shadows down Broadway, making our way through crowds of people arm in arm when suddenly I freeze like a marble statue just outside SoHo's Bloomingdale's. Chloe turns around and asks me what's wrong, a chill runs down my spine at 200 mph.

"I thought I saw her" I reply, "the lady in black". Chloe grabs my arm, drags me to Washington Square Park without saying a single word, sits me down on the spring grass and looks deep into my eyes. "Tell me everything" she says, so I do. She looks so happy, as if she's stumbled upon a treasure she didn't even know she had been looking for. "This is fantastic" she says, "I just found a new short term purpose in life. We have to find her".

  12. When I was 13, I had a friend who was obsessed with discovering the identity of a man we occasionally spotted around town whom she called "the most beautiful man in the world." This was such an intense and in all ways incomprehensible overstatement about a thoroughly average looking man, I'm not sure how I would explain it to someone today, except to say that it was an extremely entertaining short-term purpose in life. I was happily engaged in the plot, and never burst my friend's bubble with an incredulous outburst about her taste in boys.

    Anyway. I remember it being strangely, magically fun. And I'd bet it would be just as diverting now.

  17. i am terribly sorry, but exactly who is the lady in black? I've seen that you've mentioned her before, but i do not understand the part she plays in your life. Is it someone you know and share a past or person with, or just a random lady you spotted ?

    (well im rather sure, she (the writer Avy) isn't going to answer me, so could any kind soul who understand a little bit more than me kindly help me with an answer)

    Love.

  42. I just discovered your blog and I'm stunned.
    This is just like what I've been searching for for ages.
    I would love go to to NY and I'm already saving money for that, even when I'm only 15. It's just like you are the very different way of "Sex and the city". And I love that.

    xx, sparkle.
