My grandma used to tell me that one day, un güero was going to fall in love with me. She was convinced that my eyes, my skin colour, my long dark hair was going to make a blond gringo or European man fall in love with me. I dreamt about meeting this man, and one day, it all became true.
I don’t know if it was because of my big earrings or dark skin, but the güero liked me, and I really liked him too. I couldn’t believe that someone with such beautiful blue eyes could love me back. After years, I still can’t believe how good and kind this güero is to me. He loves me so much, he loves me in the way always wanted to be loved by a man. He makes me so happy.
My grandma lives very far away, she can’t see me walking down the street with my güero at hand and my black shinny hair, she can’t really understand how much he likes the way I cook, she can’t tell me if I look pretty with a ponytail and big earrings. Despite that, my grandma has met my güero, she has seen his kindness. She knows I’m happy with him.
