Looked at each other still for a second in silence, and after sweetly slapped your leg two times, I said: “Let’s go… they awaiting for us…”.
Finally you have shake yourself, and we went down: during that short path it seemed we did existed only us.
They were six or seven stairs, and each time in that stairs, it was happening something magic: our bond, it seemed link us stronger.
This time, you have done those stairs slower than ever, and you eyes were set on me as mine in your.
At end you have made me slide on your body and you assured yourself that I was landed. These little gestures were the maximum of love of a man toward a girl like me, and that man was you. What it came out from my mouth, I have said it with all my heart: “I love you, you don’t know how much”.
When we had opened the door, on the meadow, there were Bathuè and The Little One, who speaking.
The Little One was looking for extort some information that Bathuè had collected wandering in Our Parallel World, but Bathuè was determined to say what he had discover only to us.
The ritual was the usual.
The others slowly coming around us, while you gently you was helping me to sit, and your habit, was to sit behind me and wrapping me with your embrace. I must have been used to it, instead… I was holding back the breathe and I slowly, I have spin my face toward you, and our glances met and in that gaze there was everything what we could not say in that moment.
You have said: “So Bathuè, let tell us, what did you have noticed?”
Bathuè had started to speak and his voice was not that of puppy, but instead was the mature voice: that one a warrior, ready to fight a battle.
“The land is well protected, by the great mountain in the Burn Valley, and by the enchantment I have could see around” he said, and to these words we looked at each other, we have shyly smile us, and we have crossed our fingers.
He has continued: “My parents were been able to encircle The Nothing in that grey twirl in Blue City. They had said to the inhabitants that slowly it would be die in its slow vortex, but they were not be able to know when. The Little One have said me, that some its followers had tried to invade again your world trough the Burn Valley, but they has failed”
“Yes” you have nodded: I threw against your chest, as if i looking for refuge in your arms from that bad memory.
You had tight me, whispering me: “Don’t worry”.
“I have to see from where you entered in your the last time world: The Nothing could have left open a little chink outside that entrance, and they can find it: for the moment I can place me there, as guardian”.
We looked at each other astonished for what he had said us: a puppy as the guardian?
To begin we had thought it was a craziness, but right after, looking at him, thinking about what was happened in the grey zone of the Blue City, we threw away the air from the lungs and we had looked at Bathuè then Little One, who could not wait to accomplish his important task.
Bathuè was a warrior, and he came from a family of great warriors, but when we had felt him laughing with his puppy voice, playing with The Little One, we looked at each other breathless asking us if we had the right thing.”
