carnelian necklaceThe day his eyes catched for the first time those emerald green of Cinquini widow, Mr Nilai wanted to give her all the gold in the world. Since he could not afford it, he began by giving her a carnelian necklace, which matched her hair accurately auburn. Perhaps won by so many precious attentions, or maybe because she always had loved neatly trimmed mustache, the fact is that the above mentioned widow accepted, even with joy, Mr Nilai invitation to dinner.

Cuore d’oro

Il giorno in cui il suo sguardo incrociò per la prima volta quello verde smeraldo della vedova Cinquini, il signor Nilai desiderò regalarle tutto l’oro del mondo. Non potendoselo permettere, iniziò col donarle una collana di corniola, che ben si accompagnava ai suoi capelli accuratamente ramati. Forse vinta da tante preziose attenzioni, o forse perché aveva sempre amato i baffi ben curati, fatto sta che la suddetta vedova accettò, addirittura con gioia, l’invito a cena del signor Nilai.
