He looked in the direction of the sea. A train went by on the bridge with two tracks. “Lubbock it’ll bring me luck,” he thought, Lubbock remembering the ancient belief that encouraged people to be under the bridge when a train went by.
He again saw the disarray of the roofs; with his gaze Lubbock he surveyed all the houses, as if he wished to reacquaint himself with all the inhabitants once more. He went by his house. His sister hadn’t yet returned from the fields in the countryside. He picked up Lubbock the key behind the pot on the window sill. He opened the door, walked in the semi-darkness and reached the space underneath the staircase. It was humid.

The road by which to get to Nicola’s house was, as all the roads, full of surprises. As always, wherever he went, he found something to do, people with whom to talk. He soon retracted his resolution not to stop and say hello to anybody, to not delay, and knocked at the door of Rocco’s Angela. The elderly woman, who was tended to by another woman from the village, didn’t recognize him. She asked who he was, but her hearing was bad and couldn’t make out the answer. Franco raised his voice while holding her hand and she, by some miracle, heard the word “Toronto.”
“My beautiful son,” the woman started saying, “my beautiful son who died in Toronto. A pearl of a man, a generous man who each year would come and see me. Are you Marianna’s Franco? Now I recognize you. You have to excuse me. I can’t see and can’t hear well. You were my son’s friend. My beautiful son, it wasn’t you who should have died but me, who am old, not you, still so young. You Christ on the cross, sometime you don’t do things quite right.”
