You did not journey to Montréal to fall in love. You got here for the terrasses, the français, the eating places, the bagels (superior to New York, you might be advised), the classic retailers, the bookstores and the folks. Once you enter the wine bar really useful by an area you met at Olimpico, you might be welcomed with a cheerful “Bonjour-hi!” French music is enjoying within the background. You prefer it. You prefer it much more if you meet her.

She’s speaking with somebody on the bar. The golden hue of the sundown makes her many rings shine. She unpretentiously throws her head again as she laughs. She makes the ice in her Apérol Spritz glass clink as if she’s enjoying together with the music. The canicule — that is what they name heatwaves there — does not appear to trouble her. She seems unapologetically excellent in her Y2K-inspired clothes; you’ve got by no means seen low-rise denims match somebody this good since 2002. She turns her head round.

She makes her method by way of the wine bar and comes over. She sits subsequent to you and speaks with a tender voice. “Salut!” she says.

She smiles and continues in English. She mixes each languages like poetry. Nicely, it feels like poetry to your ears.

She brings you to a rooftop the place you see the Mount Royal Cross and the downtown skyline. She introduces you to the bartender, together with everybody else she is aware of there. All of them wave at her and provides her two kisses on the cheek to greet her (what a bizarre solution to greet folks). Once you sit down, you speak for hours. She discusses her job, her passions and the music she listens to. She’s outraged that you’ve got by no means heard of Munya, Vanille or Milk & Bone. As she guarantees to make you a playlist, she smiles and places her palms on yours.

And whereas she speaks, you’ve got already made life plans. You’ll give up your job. You’ll transfer to Montréal. Dammit, you’ll be taught French. You’ll dwell off bagels with smoked salmon and cream cheese and espressos. Your new favourite late-night snack will turn into poutine. You’ll begin utilizing the metric system. You’ll name the subway the metro and the nook shops will turn into dépanneurs. You’ll brag to everybody about your residence, the tradition and the folks, however will secretly hate the winters, the heatwaves, the vacationers and the fixed building. You’ll say, “Bonjour-Hello,” too. You’ll sing to Les Louanges whereas proclaiming your love for Tyler, The Creator.

She’s value it, you suppose to your self, even when it solely lasts for the summer time. Même si ça dure seulement un été. Un coup de foudre dans la canicule de l’été. Un amour d’été.
