1. “Erendira had just turned fourteen and was languid,

2. “A small truck loaded with cages appeared,…At the
wheel was a corpulent Dutch farmer, his skin
splintered by the outdoors… His son, Ulises, who
was riding in the other seat, was a gilded adolescent
with lonely maritime eyes and with the appearance
of a furtive angel.”
3. “My poor child, “ she sighed. “Life won’t be long
enough for you to pay me back for this mishap.”
4. “Early that morning, the grandmother slept less than
before. She lay awake pondering things, wrapped in
a wool blanket while the early hour got her memory
all mixed up and the repressed raving struggled to
get out even though she was awake, and she had to
tighten her heart with her hand so as not to be
suffocated by the memory of a house by the sea with
great red flowers where she had been happy.”
5. “When Ulises had returned to the house with
the pruning tools, his mother asked him for
her four o’clock medecine, which was on a
nearby table. As soon as he touched them,
the glass and the bottle changed color. Then,
out of pure play, he touched a glass pitcher
that was on the table beside some tumblers
and the pitcher also turned blue.”
6. “He broke open an orange with his nails, split it in
two with his hands, and showed Erendira what was
inside. Stuck in the heart of the gruit was a genuine
diamond.”
