DREAM TWO: CONFESSIONcopyright protection3PENANAd7DzvpWgsl

Mariko went to Báku's office, bringing him a basket of food. The office was on the second floor, nothing special in fact, the typical private detective's office (at least the one Hollywood shows us), that is, the mess everywhere, expressed in volumes of documents and reports precariously piled up along the three tables on the site.copyright protection3PENANAfeKSVKk0p7

Mariko could see Báku removing the sparse beard from his hairless jaw using two coins for the effect.copyright protection3PENANAeQdExEN0pg

“Hello Báku," said Mariko, "what are you doing?”copyright protection3PENANAbCnOcTd89G

“Oh, hello Mariko, how was your day," he said, as he struggled to pull out the last two traces of hair that were struggling to prove that the square chin was not hairless.copyright protection3PENANAtpUehQYCRo

“Put that down, I made you something special this time.”copyright protection3PENANAJ5eXJMCxM1

““And why is that? I don't remember anything important happening.”copyright protection3PENANANXDbMQ40Yd

That's your problem, you never pay attention," Mariko replied angrily, "but don't you remember that seven years ago you rescued me from the bank robbery... Look, you're hopeless," Mariko sighed resignedly.copyright protection3PENANAGsDBHVsFxj

“It's been so many years now! Well, look what time is flying by, he, he...” Báku stopped at the sight of Mariko's face that was pouting.copyright protection3PENANA3hpie94QGR

“Well," said Mariko, "you haven't forgotten your promise, have you?”copyright protection3PENANAStOwFAmJBl

“I promised you I'd find out who killed your mother and I'm keeping my promise, I swear!”copyright protection3PENANAXhOASvwka3

“Fool, I was just kidding, don't think I brought you lunch for seven years just to find out about that time. Come on, have your lunch while it's still hot.”copyright protection3PENANAEel3xAdBrT

“Thank you Mariko, I don't know what I would do without you, I just... Huh? What is this?" said Báku confusedly and with his mouth full, when he received a paper that Mariko gave him, with a face of great pleasure.copyright protection3PENANAtjniP3TbMu

“Ah this is just the bill for seven years of lunches, it also includes breakfasts, dinners, coffees, sandwiches, soft drinks...”copyright protection3PENANAxKLllEQRY1

Báku choked at that moment and coughed trying to say something in the middle of a small panic attack.copyright protection3PENANAVDggGNQUpi

“COF, COF, COF, COF... You're kidding, right?”copyright protection3PENANANSBbaqe3C1

“I have to live, you know," said Mariko, drawing a wide smile with maliciously arched eyebrows on her face.copyright protection3PENANAx9Ljv6XmXV

Baku felt his soul go to his feet.copyright protection3PENANAnSzD9fr09Q

“Foolish...” Mariko said to him, after a couple of seconds of tension, making the "V" of victory and then bending her fingers and forming a kind of fangs with these, while she pulled out the tip of her tongue and gave him a cat-like smile.copyright protection3PENANAiXIT9TkoWX

"The truth is that I don't need to work," continued the girl, "my father is rich and a very important person in his field: "researches related to the similarity of the music and native instruments of the present Brazilian aborigines, with the ancient pre-Inca melodies in the tropical regions, together with post-colonial stringed instruments in the Bolivian highlands and their transposition into the Anatolian area in..." Buff, I really don't know what he's really doing, because he doesn't tell me anything about what he's doing (and I don't want to be interested either). You will not find a daughter who looks less like her father," she said, closing her eyes and pointing her index finger at the ceiling, as a professor would when giving a dissertation, "he is tall with gray hair, with a beard and moustache, but neatly trimmed (he looks like a vampire, to my shame), has a severe face, and his dress and character is always formal.”copyright protection3PENANApu6bNChKYf

"My mother, on the other hand," continued the dissertation, "was tall with long brown hair, the only memory I have of her, apart from the pictures, is the silver cross that I always carry with me, which is thin and a little long.”copyright protection3PENANAGl8fZhvriF

“Is something wrong? said Báku, interrupting his friend's insufferable chatter.copyright protection3PENANAhAD0uMUPbR

“Oh no, it's all right," said Mariko, who inadvertently held her mother's cross.copyright protection3PENANAMAlTM9v3Ut

“You still miss her, don't you?”copyright protection3PENANAjAPrQPJmg1

“Hey... I'm fine, really, I've got my father... and my defending champion. Umm, aren't you laughing? What's the matter?”copyright protection3PENANA1yCFz7stWD

Báku's face was more serious than usual, as if weighing up what he was going to say next and gathering the courage for it.copyright protection3PENANAkIeGC0P74J

“Forgive me Mariko, I was able to save your mother, but I didn't have the guts. The day of the assault, I was in charge of the first patrols that arrived at the bank, but I was afraid of making a mistake and so I didn't make any decision... Another patrol had to arrive with a superior officer so that we could just get into action... If it wasn't for my damn indecision!, I... I...”copyright protection3PENANABnkrPbgyyx

Báku's fist closed on his thigh, and then a young and delicate hand landed on it gently.copyright protection3PENANAAA6dfFkH9g

“Don't worry, I don't think it was your fault, you shouldn't think about sad things, you look better cheered up, you know, besides, since you will be my defending champion with that sad attitude... You know, I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for you, my father only took care of my mother's funeral, he barely visited me at the hospital once... Only you visited me without being yours and then you gave me the courage to go on with my life.”copyright protection3PENANAktZyaByZJC

“Mariko, I don't know how to tell you this but... I... I...”copyright protection3PENANAJk04MPf3nN

“Hey, don't tell me you're in love with me, I'm only bringing you food because.... Because you're already in your forties and you still don't have anyone to take care of you!” Mariko spoke in a hurry and noticed how the words got entangled in her mouth as she noticed her face catch fire from the blush.copyright protection3PENANAAYnHbDnvkw

“No, it's not that. I...”copyright protection3PENANAMF0LdamMa5

“What do you mean?!” Mariko pretended to roll up her sleeves. “You will be!, you don't disturb a lady like that.”copyright protection3PENANApUqpYceefC

“Mariko, when I rescued you I didn't see you at all, you were there, but you had become invisible, like in the superhero comics!”copyright protection3PENANA2QBqxM3Vio

Then the images of that day came back to the girl's mind, but they did not focus on the killing, but rather on the way her friend had looked at her, stunned.copyright protection3PENANAr43sPhDc3N

“I... I remember you, I remember you well, you looked at me so strangely, you looked at me so strangely, you held me so close to you... I couldn't see myself reflected in your eyes and then... then... I appeared in your eyes, as if I suddenly materialized.”copyright protection3PENANAitHISGV7Ub

“When I entered the bank, I saw your mother's body and underneath it a man's body, both of them were very wounded, I had no doubt that they were dead... but in the middle of both there was an empty space, somehow there was someone in the middle even though I couldn't see it, I took you out and told the commander that I had found a girl who had survived, and then you became visible, nobody saw it because it was very sudden.”copyright protection3PENANAKX1lnz8ruq

“It wasn't a dream then, but that's not possible, what you just said only happens in the movies.”copyright protection3PENANAPWvTpla2xe

“I can't explain it, but that's how it happened, you have to believe me.”copyright protection3PENANAQQHyzAeuH9

There was a serious silence in the office, even the loud noise of the motorized people on the street seemed to be gone.copyright protection3PENANAFs7HNuhWWM

“I believe you, only hearing it like that is so strange... One... One moment! How did you know it was a girl if I was invisible at the time!”copyright protection3PENANAnMISF8eQaL

“Well you were soft and I figured...”copyright protection3PENANA40CMybmNG3

The office building shone its white front to the sun, while passers-by heading for their usual destinations saw their daily routine interrupted by shouts coming from one of the offices of the building facing the street.copyright protection3PENANAXmv43jzlgv

“Ahh... ahh... ahh... uff... I feel better now," said Mariko.copyright protection3PENANA7DiQwYYKO9

“Gosh Mariko, you've become very strong, that cocacho really hurt, and look what someone in my line of work tells you who has to fight with gigantic brutes who..... Hey, hey, wait! Drop the TV, you'll break it!”copyright protection3PENANAwTa9FJk1w0

On the front sidewalk a young man wearing dark sunglasses, a suit and beige pants, a black bettle sweater, glossy morello cherry shoes and an intimidating face, showed his teeth, looking aggressively at the office in front of him.copyright protection3PENANA5tmAyqU7Lb
