Excerpts from the book Behavior to the Morning
Everything I look at closely becomes unreliable and unreliable, everything disappears and falls apart.
Now, in this tragic stage, I listened all day in the heart of the yellow-clad autumn nature and under the blue sky to the songs of the Revolutionary Guards and their secret signs, and I waited for the return of the courier and the arrival of a message with increasing impatience. Each time I failed, I saw nothing but helpless and confused faces.
For the first time, I felt a sense of sadness and doubt in my heart, and the more intense this feeling became in my heart, the more I saw that it was not just the hope of recovering Leo that was weakening, but that nothing was certain anymore and everything deserved doubt. It was and was feared that the companionship of the companions and the faith in the journey and the oath of allegiance and even our conduct towards the morning and life itself would lose all their value and meaning.
