Ter vindo a Manaus foi meu último impulso aventureiro; decidi fixar-me nessa cidade porque, ao ver de longe a cúpula do teatro, recordei-me de uma mesquita que jamais 74 75 tinha visto, mas que constava nas histórias dos livros da infância e na descrição de um hadji da minha terra. Muito antes do desaparecimento de Emir soube que me casaria com Emilie; os levantinos da cidade eram numerosos e quase todos habitavam no mesmo bairro, próximo ao porto. A beira de um rio ou a orla marítima os aproximam, e em qualquer lugar do mundo as águas que eles vêem ou pisam são também as águas do Mediterrâneo.

Mas o curioso é que ele sempre deixava uma ponta de incerteza ou descrédito no que contava, sem nunca perder a entonação e o fervor dos que contam com 78 79 convicção. Os fatos e incidentes ocorridos na família de Emilie e na vida da cidade também participavam das versões confidenciadas por teu pai aos visitantes solitários da Parisiense. O que me fez pensar nisso foi a coincidência entre certas passagens da vida de outras pessoas, que mescladas a textos orientais ele incorporava à sua própria vida.

Em Manaus, um sempre fazia companhia ao outro nas idas ao cemitério e à igreja. Nunca me perguntaram se eu era religioso, mas talvez condenassem secretamente este estrangeiro que vivia no mato entre os índios, que nunca entrara numa igreja, e no entanto podia rezar uma Ave-Maria em nhengatu. Emilie e o marido praticavam a religião com fervor. Antes do casamento haviam feito um pacto para respeitar a religião do outro, cabendo aos filhos optarem por uma das duas ou por nenhuma. — Basta olhar para o templo que abriga os fiéis de cada religião para se ter uma idéia de como uma difere da outra — disse teu pai, ao explicar a árvore genealógica da família do Profeta, numa das nossas conversas de fim de tarde na Parisiense.
