Last Conversation with my Grandfather
Grandad had a close friend, Francis.
‘Francis had always been the Romeo type you see’, my granddad tells me, placing a long drawn out emphasis on his last word. His words, heavily accented with a mix of Indian, Singaporean and British influences, a result of growing up speaking Tamil in Singapore under British rule.
‘Everybody loved Francis, he was so confident’, his head rests back on the sofa. I tell him it’s okay if he wants to go to sleep; the doctor said he should rest, his head bounces back up. He is intent on telling me this story, the story of how he met his wife.
‘Francis… Francis was a bastard child, do you know what this is my dear – he was the son of a Scottish rubber planter and an Indian rubber tapper’, he smacks his lips playfully together whilst speaking and presses the air with his fingertip upon each syllable – enthused that he has remembered correctly. I cringe inwardly at the term ‘bastard child’ but let him carry on.
‘What you must understand my dear is that I had never kissed a girl before see. I did not know how to approach these women,’ I smile, and again say nothing, knowing how much of a Romeo he himself was at that age, ‘but I had a plan, to steal Edna away from him.’
