Example text

J’ignore si je faisais partie de cette chaleur, mais elle me regarda, puis regarda autour d’elle, puis me regarda de nouveau, et sourit. Ma poitrine se serra. Le soleil émanait d’elle. Elle avait une épaisse chevelure blonde et crépue, un teint couleur de miel, des yeux très sombres et un visage si clair, si ouvert, que des années plus tard, alors que Tito et moi faisions du trekking dans l’Himalaya et que le vent changea et que tout à coup, dans une explosion de clarté qui me coupa le souffle, nous aperçûmes le mont Nanga Parbat dans sa totalité massive, microscopiquement précise, le seul mot qui me vint aux lèvres fut son nom depuis longtemps oublié.

Because I love him ! » «¡ Porque le amo ! » Je fus plus concret : Noah possédait l’organe sexuel complémentaire au mien. « Ah ! oui ? » répliquat-elle. En voyant le sourire incontrôlable qui éclaira son visage, j’eus pour la première fois l’intuition que quelque chose m’avait échappé. Elle prit ma main, dit au revoir à Noah en anglais, et nous nous dirigeâmes vers la voiture. Je me rappelle clairement m’être retourné pendant que nous nous éloignions et avoir chevroté, d’une voix infiniment triste : « Salut, Noah », car, d’une façon vague, je comprenais que je venais de perdre mon mari.

Je n’ai ni vu ni entendu Eva s’excuser et remercier dans son français approximatif, ni Pavel lui faire écho dans son anglais, ni Sharon et Philippe leur assurer que les excuses et les remerciements 44 étaient superflus. Je n’avais d’attention que pour Marisa, qui regardait autour d’elle et prenait conscience de la chaleur. J’ignore si je faisais partie de cette chaleur, mais elle me regarda, puis regarda autour d’elle, puis me regarda de nouveau, et sourit. Ma poitrine se serra. Le soleil émanait d’elle.
