They were a completely current man and a woman, of perhaps excessively elegant aspect to go of stores. The unique stranger was that the man Lucia one melena of white hair that conferred a singular will to him.

It is careful when leading. Its end is marked by a traffic accident.

Next, it loosen the forearm to him and the pair followed its way. The old one seemed something disturbed, but it did not add absolutely anything. Ramon and I watched myself incredulous, without giving greater importance to that one commentary. – What rarer people have that way, friend. – Of manicomio – I seconded, uniting me to the guffaw of Ramon. Minutes later, it was dismissing to me of Ramon, who took a taxi towards the airport.

How it has happened? The monovolume of Ramon had front collided the previous night with a truck in a freeway. It had not survived. When I kept the telephone, I felt very heartbroken. Somebody of my age, near had never died surroundings. He was the first friend who lost.
