Belle, when I arrived in this country, America, I decided to close my heart. It was the only way for me to stay strong… care for no one. Then, I remember opening my eyes in great pain. And the first thing I saw was you. Helping me. No, I didn’t see you. I depended on you, but I did not see you. It took too long, Belle, but now I see a woman like no one I’ve ever met… kind and strong… and very beautiful and smart, and… I hope that… Well, I-I hope that… What I would like… Yes. Kunta Kinte, I will be your wife.
