Imaginative or Creative Response to Like Water for Chocolate Choice 3. Packing a suitcase It was a cold May morning and Pedro's absence dug an endless pit in Tita's heart, providing not a pulse of heat to her body. Nacha, Roberto and Pedro were all gone, but she knew the difference between Nacha's absence and theirs. She knew what she had to do in order to light her inner fire, and the only way she could do so was by bringing him back to her. She woke early that morning to sneak into the henhouse where she had prepared the suitcase and everything she would pack for him the night before. The sound of silence was soothing; the inexistence of Mama Elena's arguing felt ever so peaceful. With only the slow and tranquil breathing of the sleeping chickens, Tita was sure to make no noise her self. Everything was quiet and calm, yet, Tita felt her heart pound up and down faster than Nacha could move the blade up and down when cutting spring onions in a hurry. ...read more.


She tossed exactly two cloves into the mixture which had an immediate effect and the memories settled to the bottom of the pot perfectly, just as she had planned. As she poured them out it was difficult to separate them but she managed to quickly roll each in bread crust crumbles without a sign of Mama Elena in any of the memories. She covered the inside of the suitcase with her blood that ran from her hands the day she clasped the rose Pedro gave to her. Then she neatly placed the days in February when Pedro and her exchanged immense passion without a single word spoken. Among them was the day that she was carrying a tray of egg-yolk candies when she felt his hot gaze burning her skin and their eyes met with fiery passion. Also, she included the day she dropped the apricots and as he offered his help, his eyes spotted the smooth skin of her leg that was revealed. She knew he would be burning up by now so she placed a jar of boiling oil with a ball of dough in it to remind him how she herself felt those first few days before they spoke with one another. ...read more.


The breeze felt cold on her bare skin and the bag was too heavy for her to lift. She had less than a minute to bring the bag out to Nicholas and running out to call for his help would take too long and create too much noise. Tita was about to collapse in fear of her efforts having gone to waste, and tears began to run down her precious cheeks. Luckily, the sobbing brought Nacha back from the days of cutting onions in the kitchen. Wise as Nacha is, she understood what Tita needed to be done and helped her bring the bag to Nicholas. Tita instructed Nicholas on where to bring the suitcase and remembered the eggs she had put in her pockets when in the henhouse. Just as Mama Elena opened the curtains to look out, Tita managed to walk towards the house with eggs in her hand, as if she were doing her morning chores. Tita entered the house with a smirk on her face and feeling of relief as now she all she had to do was await for Pedro's return. ?? ?? ?? ??
