Coromo, Chapter 2, parts, 584 - 587

584. When the week arrived when Coromo expected the sisters to be at the resort he started bringing his six paintings to work with him. During the day he left them all at the bussing station in a stack, expecting any instant to see the sisters enter the dining room.

585. The entire week went by and the sisters did not appear, meanwhile he noticed a complete absence of e-mail messages from his friend. I can't tell you how many times he snuck away from his post at work to run into the computer room to look for a note, but no note came.  He would click 're-set page' over and over again to no avail.

586. Finally on the last day of the week he was expecting the sisters he got a single message informing him that he had won a British Lottery, and he could claim his six million dollars in prize money. This was how upset he was, the fact that he had won six million dollars in the lottery did not cheer him up at all, although he did read the message and filled out the necessary information to claim his prize.

587. I am not going to tell you about Coromo's hurt feelings; if you have been stood-up, and given no explanation then you know how he felt. The third sister simply did not have the heart to tell him she was not coming. The fact that she was unable to write to him should have told him how serious her feelings were, but it had the opposite effect.
