Emilie deixava-a falar, mas por vezes seu rosto interrogava o significado de um termo qualquer de origem indígena, ou de uma expressão não utilizada na cidade, e que pertencia à vida da lavadeira, a um tempo remotíssimo, a um lugar esquecido à margem de um rio, e que desconhecíamos. Naqueles momentos de dúvida ou incompreensão, de nada adiantava o olhar perplexo de Emilie voltado para mim; permanecíamos, os três, calados, resignados a suportar o peso do silêncio, atribuído aos "truques da língua brasileira", como proferia minha mãe.
Nos sonhos, eu e Emir aparecíamos à beira do cais, cujo limite era a espessa cortina do chuvisco num momento do dia marcado pelo silêncio. O que dizíamos um ao outro não delineava exatamente uma conversa e sim um amálgama de enigmas, de vozes refratárias, pois recorríamos à nossa língua materna, que para o outro nada mais era senão sons sem sentido, palavras que passam por um prisma invisível, melodia pura tragada pelo vento morno, sons lançados na atmosfera e engolfados pela bruma: o chuvisco incessante, nos sonhos.

Nada disso a convenceu, ainda mais quando leu na imprensa a opinião de um jornalista: o corpo podia ser mais um dos tantos combatentes que tombaram na sangrenta escaramuça de 1910, entre forças do governo e federalistas.
