How are you, Mr. Daniel? Hello, how are you? Well, thank you. You can sit down, I’ll tell the madam. I was in my room and I was told of your arrival. Am I late? But I’m not also the first? The others arrived just a moment ago. All five are in the garden? The five, yes. We are all here then. All of us. Everyone who wants to watch the procession. From the marriage-bed to the deathbed. Do you exist, Destiny? Do you exist as the day exists, the light the night I should know. In the grave, under the shade of a cypress, at the foot of the cross. He will always live in his wife’s memory. My dear, dear Ricardo. How dare you, how dare you wear mourning? You are an insolent. It will cost you dearly this miserable attitude. Don’t bother me. This thing to me is sacred. It has been over one year since the graveyard scene. What good has done my volunteer humiliation? You continue to despise me. No, I can’t stand your insults anymore. There is no life without you. You kill me, Vanda. Goodbye. I forgive you for all the wrong you did to me. The poor man. He fell from that height and didn’t die immediately. Vanda, don’t talk like that. You hated Firmino, and he’s dying. It was what he wanted when he jumped out of the window. Anyone else would have died. Death hesitates to take him. What a sarcasm. Aren’t you afraid? Afraid to be honest and say what I feel? To feel what you say, if it’s true. You’re nervous, Vanda, or you wouldn’t talk like that. Nervous? Perhaps from the joy of him dying. Death will take him, perhaps reluctantly, but there’s no alternative. My only regret is not pushing him. Vanda! I swear I would have liked. Be careful what you say. See what I do with this letter? What? I tear it. Firmino has left a letter? Yes, and I made it in pieces. What did the letter say? He says goodbye and announces his suicide. He forgives me for the harm I’ve done to him, the harm that I did. Isn’t an insult to forgive someone who did not ask to be forgiven? A poor idiot posing as magnanimous! I’m beside myself. If he didn’t die, I could have revenge.
