Y en cualquier caso no necesitaba sustancias excitantes aquella noche. Sentía una tensión irracional, una euforia infantil, casi ridícula, porque me parecía que debía superar una dura prueba impuesta por el destino y que todas las miradas, las de aquellas mujeres hermosas, fascinantes y aquellos hombres inteligentes y poderosos, estaban puestas en mí... Yo sonreía con mucha cordialidad, como si fuese una archiduquesa del siglo dieciocho, con la cara empolvada y postizos en el cabello, entreteniendo a los invitados en un cercle.

Le dije que quería reconquistar su corazón, pero no sabía cómo, y por eso quería pedirle ayuda a Dios. Le conté que era una mujer decente, que en mis sueños sólo había espacio para mi marido. Le conté que no sabía si la culpa era mía o de él... En una palabra, se lo conté todo. No como te lo estoy contando a ti. Ahora ya no puedo contarlo todo, me daría vergüenza... Pero en la iglesia a oscuras, aquella mañana me abrí por completo a aquel sacerdote viejo y desconocido. Estuve confesándome mucho tiempo.

No solía llamar a casa por cuestiones tan banales. Yo me ofrecí a llevársela, podía pasar por la fábrica a mediodía, si le convenía. Pero me lo agradeció y rechazó la oferta. Ponla en un sobre, dijo, enseguida llegará el mozo. Fue entonces cuando registré la cartera. Escarbé en todos los compartimentos, era la primera vez que hacía algo así.
