When he enters the acupuncture room, the scent of mint calms his senses. It is there that he has the idea to buy a present for his girlfriend. The sea salt on the table shines like salty diamonds. “This attracts good things,” the doctor explains. He believes in the words and asks to be happy forever. In his ear, the coffee beans accentuate his sensibility. After the session, he buys a pair of earrings with yellow stones, imposing, beautiful, but with no value. The seller wraps them in a flowery paper. He doesn’t know if she will like them. But still desires to see her smile like a day in the sun.
