As Walter and I drove across the 15th Century Pont de Belcastel (Belcastel Bridge), we couldn’t help but marvel at the picturesque beauty of this medieval village; with Château de Belcastel, being the crown jewel of this plus beaux village de France (the most beautiful village of France). We gave ourselves concurring looks. We had finally found the French county to retire to in 2018/2019.
I broke the silence as we sat at Hotel Du Vieux Pont outdoor café, enjoying the scenic winsomeness of the gentle flowing Aveyron River.
I announced, “Emerantia (my literary and film agent) emailed me today.”
“What did she say?” my beloved queried.
“Read her lengthy message I forwarded you,” I replied.
I commented while ‘hubby’ read from his phone, “This year, the Year of the Rooster is going to be an excellent year for you - dragon and me - snake.”
He remarked arbitrarily without looking up, “How so?”
“For the snake: fortune, recognitions, rewards, promotions, bonuses, and romance are available to me in 2017. I’m gonna be feted and popular.”
I paused before I quipped, “It’s time for me to shed my skin and be reborn.”
“What about me?” he queried enthusiastically.
“You’ll continue to enjoy good fortune, prosperity, happiness, good news, luck in love, promotions, and of course, business successes,” I stated.
He looked at me with a Cheshire Grin on his face. “Me Oh My! Congratulations, darling! Who’s going to play the adolescent Young in A Harem Boy’s Saga – I – INITIATION, the movie?”
“We are doing a worldwide search, even-though I’d sent Emerantia and the producers (John and Julian), a potential Hong Kong candidate for their consideration. He has the looks and the physical attributes that resembles the teenage moi. The slack is; he said he’s not gay. The producers want an authentic gay actor to convincingly play me, especially when it comes to shooting explicit sex scenes,” I pronounced.
“Are the co-actors casted?” Walter questioned.
“I believe so. I’m the missing link. Once we locate the ‘young moi’, filming can begin. Hopefully this year.”
“How exciting! May the right gay actor manifest himself. For now, let’s toast to our future in France!” He raised his glass before he added, “And to the Year of the Fire Rooster!”
