LOCO AFAN PEDRO LEMEBEL PDF

Kristina SabaliauskaitÄ—

Even though death was all around them, the twins, in the tenth year of their lives, looked directly into its grey mutable face for the first time and that confrontation, which lasted but a few moments, it could be said, decided their fate. Everything had started several weeks before, when their beloved tabby Maurycy died, a well-fed creature, their companion from the cradle who, keeping his claws retracted, like a Stoic, suffered all their pranks with patience. Even their favourite prank where one of the twins would hold it tight, while the other pulled on its tail. Caught unawares, Maurycy obeyed nature and, forgetting the forgiveness of felines to small children, struggling fiercely, would scratch the one holding it. Most often it was Kazimierz who would feel the brunt, since it was Urszula who had the miraculous ability to put on an angelic face and ambush the cat by pulling on its tail; sometimes, amusing themselves, they would tie something that made a noise to its tail and wrap the unfortunate pet up like a babe in swaddling clothes.
