Cuento sobre la solidez del amor
Story about the solidity of love
He had studied Law and now studied economics and wanted to study History after and was completely convinced that what the lovers did in private was not serious or respectable but childish absurdities that annoyed more than liked to them and that when they had something important to attend, even they themselves did not want to do it anymore. He felt intelligent first of all because, imbibed in his sober readings, he felt not the slightest longing for such an activity, perhaps for the hours at the bar with friends. For him, the important and serious had been the war against fascism, and the one which defeated it was now the most reactionary and imperialist of the countries; it was important and serious to remember the Jewish holocaust and now the Jews had their own National Socialism, it was important and serious the dictatorship of the proletariat in the USSR and it did not surpass the end of century, so when he saw two grown humans putting childish expressions as they looked each other and engaged in tasks that lacked completely utility and benefit, the only thing he thought of was the time that their minds would remain in that way without realizing the serious error they were making because he was quite sure that at the twenty, the thirty, the sixty years, a human being is no longer a child.
