Canto de Zorro y Perro
It was Gabrielas birthday, and everyone she knew was obliged to take notice. The large hotel ballroom was rife with overt finery; colorful banners and crystal chandeliers and ice-sculptures now came into view. Girls and boys flitted between tables, wearing their best evening wear and sipping expensive drinks. Gabi was in the middle of the floor, dancing randomly with anyone and everyone. Dora was with her boyfriend, Chuy, who was also Gabis brother. Gabriela was turning 18, while Chuy and Dora were 17.
After they had gotten tired of dancing, they rested at a large table. A tall, blonde boy with a ruddy face and a big, goofy smile sauntered over and sat down on the other side of Dora. Chuy slowly shifted to face the grinning boy. Um, hi! Can we help you? said Chuy. The boy continued to stare and smile at Dora.
