uniforme de general

\u00cenaintau am\u00e2ndoi \u00een v\u00e2rful picioarelor, cu mare grij\u0103, \u015fi de c\u00e2te ori
podeaua sc\u00e2r\u0163\u00e2ia mai puternic, se opreau brusc, \u0163in\u00e2ndu-\u015fi r\u0103suflarea. \u015ei \u00een
acea clip\u0103, aproape f\u0103r\u0103 s\u0103-\u015fi dea seama, ieronim ap\u0103sa butonul l\u0103mpii de
buzunar \u015fi r\u0103m\u00e2neau pe \u00eentuneric.

\u2014 s\u0103 nu-\u0163i fie team\u0103, \u00eei \u015fopti c\u00e2nd, pu\u0163in timp \u00een urm\u0103, se \u00eempiedic\u0103 de o fr\u00e2nghie pe care nu o putuse vedea \u015fi, rezem\u00e2ndu-se, ca s\u0103 nu cad\u0103, de un dulap, una din u\u015fi se deschise \u00eencet, sc\u00e2r\u0163\u00e2ind prelung, ca un geam\u0103t \u00eenfundat. s\u0103 nu-\u0163i fie team\u0103. nu e nimeni \u00een toat\u0103 casa...

\u2014 atunci de ce vorbe\u015fti at\u00e2t de \u00eencet? \u00eel \u00eentreb\u0103 celalt.

ieronim reaprinse lanterna \u015fi roti de c\u00e2teva ori conul de lumin\u0103 \u00een jurul b\u0103iatului, f\u0103r\u0103 s\u0103-l \u00eenal\u0163e totu\u015fi p\u00e2n\u0103 \u00een dreptul figurii. dar nu avea nevoie. o vedea destul de bine: fa\u0163a ofilit\u0103 de licean, cu ochii ad\u00e2nci\u0163i nefiresc \u00een orbite, buzele sub\u0163iri \u015fi p\u0103rul tuns scurt, cu un \u00eenceput de breton pe frunte.

\u2014 spuneai c\u0103 te cheam\u0103 vlad, nu e a\u015fa?
\u2014 vlad. vladimir iconaru.

\u2014 afl\u0103 de la mine, amice iconaru, spuse apropiindu-\u015fi pu\u0163in capul, c\u0103
niciodat\u0103, nimeni, \u00een nici o pies\u0103 de teatru, \u00een nici un roman, \u00een nici o
poezie, nimeni, repet, n-a cutezat s\u0103 vorbeasc\u0103 cu glas normal c\u00e2nd se
introduce noaptea \u00een podul unei case str\u0103ine \u015fi se introduce, ca noi, cu un
scop bine precizat: s\u0103 g\u0103seasc\u0103 lada \u00een care v\u0103duva eroului de r\u0103zboi,
gneralul iancu calomfir, a p\u0103strat cu pietate uniformele de gal\u0103 ale so\u0163ului
ei; s\u0103 g\u0103seasc\u0103, zic, lada, s\u0103-i sparg\u0103 lac\u0103tul. s\u0103 fure cele dou\u0103 uniforme.
repet,s\u0103 fure dou\u0103 uniforme de general.

\u2014 dar spuneai c\u0103 sunte\u0163i rude...

\u2014 suntem. mai mult: tat\u0103l meu era nepotul favorit al v\u0103duvei general
iancu calomfir. dar ce-are a face? ne-am introdus \u00een acest pod cu chei
false, la c\u0103derea nop\u0163ii, ca s\u0103 c\u0103ut\u0103m un anumit obiect \u015fis\u0103-l fur\u0103m. e
adev\u0103rat, un obiect av\u00e2nd poate de un anumit interes istoric, dar f\u0103r\u0103
valoare: dou\u0103 uniforme.

\u2014 \u015ei o colec\u0163ie de coleoptere, ad\u0103ug\u0103 vladimir.

ieronim \u00ee\u015fi \u00een\u0103l\u0163\u0103 din nou lanterna, \u015fi de data aceasta \u00ee\u015fi concentr\u0103
lumina deasupra capului b\u0103iatului, apoi \u00eei f\u0103cu semn s\u0103-l urmeze. dar dup\u0103
c\u00e2\u0163iva pa\u015fi se opri.

\u2014 n-am mai fost de mul\u0163i ani \u00een acest pod, \u00eencepu cu un glas neutru.
dar \u00eemi aduc foarte bine aminte toate obiectele, toate aceste dulapuri, l\u0103zi
\u015fi cufere, \u015fi i le ar\u0103t\u0103 plimb\u00e2ndu-\u015fi lanterna de-a lungul pere\u0163ilor. \u00cemi aduc,
de asemenea, foarte bine aminte de pozi\u0163ia l\u0103zii cu uniforme: este acolo,
la vreo zece metri \u00een fa\u0163a noastr\u0103, de\u015fi n-o putem \u00eenc\u0103 vedea, pentru c\u0103 e
ascuns\u0103 de nenum\u0103rate alte l\u0103zi, cufere \u015fi multe, foarte multe pachete cu
ziare vechi. dar un singur lucru nu-mi aduc aminte, vladimir iconaru: nu-mi
aduc aminte s\u0103-\u0163i fi vorbit de o colec\u0163ie de coleoptere. \u0162i-am spus doar
at\u00e2t: c\u0103 \u00een aceast\u0103 cas\u0103, exist\u0103 multe insectare, c\u0103 exist\u0103 mai aleso foarte

bogat\u0103 colec\u0163ie de fluturi...
\u2014 p\u0103cat! \u015ei fluturii sunt frumo\u015fi, dar marea mea pasiuni sunt
coleopterele...
ieronim \u00ee\u015fi l\u0103s\u0103 capul pe spate \u015fi-l privi surprins, cercet\u0103tor.

\u2014 interesant, continu\u0103 dup\u0103 c\u00e2teva clipe, \u015fi trebuie s\u0103 recunosc, nu
m\u0103 a\u015fteptam. dac\u0103 a\u015f scrie vreodat\u0103 un tratat de moral\u0103, ar trebui s\u0103
discut \u015fi cazul dumitale. c\u0103ci e\u015fti un caz interesant; \u00eentr-un cuv\u00e2nt, accep\u0163i
cu entuziasm condi\u0163ia de sp\u0103rg\u0103tor pentru o colec\u0163ie de coleoptere, dar
ezi\u0163i, sau mai precis e\u015fti turburat de scrupule, c\u00e2nd afli c\u0103 e vorba numai

de fluturi...

\u2014 nu ezit! protest\u0103 iconaru \u00eembujor\u00e2ndu-se. pentru c\u0103 de fapt nu e furt. sunte\u0163i rude. e vorba de aceea\u015fi familie... \u015ei apoi, ad\u0103ug\u0103 cobor\u00e2nd glasul, to\u0163i sunt mor\u0163i.

__ de ce spuito\u0163i?

\u2014 to\u0163i care au tr\u0103it \u00een casa asta, generalul \u015fi v\u0103duva lui, \u015fi copiii pe
care i-au avut, \u015fi care au murit pe r\u00e2nd, unii \u00een r\u0103zboi, al\u0163ii \u00een bombarda-
ment. nu mi-ai spus alalt\u0103ieri c\u0103 au murit to\u0163i, \u015fi casa e pustie, iar dac\u0103 n-a
luat-o nimeni p\u00e2n\u0103 acum, este pentru c\u0103 a r\u0103mas \u015fubred\u0103 de la bombarda-
ment, \u015fi c\u0103 poate au s-o d\u0103r\u00e2me la prim\u0103var\u0103?...

ieronim \u00eel privi din nou, lung, cu o mare triste\u0163e, apoi stinse lanterna.
\u2014 a\u015fa este, \u015fopti. to\u0163i au murit. sau, ad\u0103ug\u0103 dup\u0103 o pauz\u0103, ca s\u0103 fiu
foarte precis, aproape to\u0163i. dar ce-are a face? nu avem dreptul s\u0103 pierdem

speran\u0163a. c\u00e2nd te-am z\u0103rit alalt\u0103ieri diminea\u0163\u0103...
aprinse lanterna \u015fi-i \u00eendrept\u0103 lumina direct spre fruntea celuilalt.
b\u0103iatul \u00ee\u015fi duse repede palma la ochi.

\u2014 iart\u0103-m\u0103, continu\u0103 ieronim dup\u0103 ce stinse lanterna. n-am vrut s\u0103-\u0163i
fac r\u0103u. dar a trebuit s\u0103-\u0163i privesc \u00eenc\u0103 o dat\u0103 ochii \u00eenainte de a-mi aminti.
nu, nu e vorba de amintire, ci de e v oca re . a\u015fa cum \u00eemi place mie s\u0103-mi
\u00eenchipui, e ca \u015fi cum am asculta corul \u00eentr-o tragedie greac\u0103. corul care
rezum\u0103, evoc\u0103 sau preveste\u015fte ac\u0163iunea eroilor \u015fi pedeapsa zeilor... \u015ei
acum, nu te mi\u015fca \u015fi ascult\u0103. decorul e simplu, \u00eel cuno\u015fti. o strad\u0103 din
bucure\u015ftii anilor 1950. \u00cenceput de toamn\u0103. \u00cen fund, un maidan. c\u0103tre acel
maidan m\u0103 \u00eendreptam eu, cu un anumit scop, c\u00e2nd am v\u0103zut venind un
licean cu un porumbel \u00een m\u00e2n\u0103...

\u2014 era r\u0103nit...

\u2014 te rog, nu m\u0103 \u00eentrerupe. \u0162i-am spus c\u0103 acum vorbe\u015fte.... venea un
licean zgribulit, cu obrazul palid, \u0163in\u00e2nd un porumbel \u00een m\u00e2na dreapt\u0103 \u015fi
m\u00e2ng\u00e2indu-l la r\u0103stimpuri cu palma st\u00e2ng\u0103...

\u2014 era r\u0103nit \u015fi mi-era team\u0103 s\u0103 nu-l m\u0103n\u00e2nce pisicile...
\u2014 a\u015fa mi-ai spus \u015fi atunci. dar eu te-am recunoscut imediat, c\u0103ci
duceai un porumbel \u00een m\u00e2n\u0103... \u015ei am \u015ftiut ce \u015ftiam de mult: c\u0103 nu avem
dreptul s\u0103 pierdem speran\u0163a... mai tr\u0103ie\u015fte? \u00eentreb\u0103 dup\u0103 o clip\u0103.
\u2014 avea doar aripa st\u00e2ng\u0103 pe jum\u0103tate rupt\u0103. \u00cel lovise vreun derbedeu
cu pra\u015ftia. dar se vindec\u0103. se vindec\u0103 repede ca toate p\u0103s\u0103rile...
\u2014\u00cen orice caz, continu\u0103 ieronim, acesta a fost \u00eenceputul aventurii
noastre. pentru c\u0103, recunoa\u015fte, nu \u0163i-am ascuns din prima clip\u0103 c\u0103 e vorba
de o aventur\u0103.
\u2014 mi-ai spus c\u0103 \u015ftii de un pod, \u00eentr-o cas\u0103 p\u0103r\u0103sit\u0103, un pod plin cu l\u0103zi
\u015fi cufere, \u015fi lucruri de tot felul, s\u0103bii \u015fi coifuri \u015fi juc\u0103rii, \u015fi reviste ilustrate
vechi...
ieronim \u00ee\u015fi trecu nervos m\u00e2na prin p\u0103r, ca \u015fi cum ar fi \u00eencercat s\u0103-\u015fi
potoleasc\u0103 ner\u0103bdarea.

\u2014 \u015ei c\u00e2te altele, \u015fi c\u00e2te altele, ad\u0103ug\u0103, \u015fi vorbindu-\u0163i te priveam. dac\u0103 ai \u015fti cum te priveam, s\u0103 ghicesc ce te-ar fi putut atrage sau interesa... \u015ei totu\u015fi, din c\u00e2nd \u00een c\u00e2nd, \u00eemi zv\u00e2rleam privirile, pe furi\u015f, asupra porumbelu- lui...

\u2014 \u00cel g\u0103sisem pe maidan. \u00cel lovise cineva cu o piatr\u0103...
ieronim \u00eentinse brusc bra\u0163ul spre \u00eentuneric \u015fi-i puse m\u00e2na pe um\u0103r.

\u2014 s\u0103 nu-\u0163i \u00eenchipui cumva c\u0103 voiam s\u0103 te pun la \u00eencercare sau s\u0103 te
ispitesc. dar pentru mine, care tr\u0103iesc numai pentru teatru, scena era prea
excep\u0163ional\u0103 ca s\u0103 nu ghice\u015fti c\u0103 f\u0103cea parte din acel scenariu misterios
pe care m\u0103 trudea necontenit, \u015fi totu\u015fi zadarnic, s\u0103-l reconstituiesc, dac\u0103
\u00een\u0163elegi ce vreau s\u0103 spun...

\u00ce\u015fi retrase m\u00e2na de pe um\u0103rul b\u0103iatului \u015fi continu\u0103, cu un alt glas:

\u2014 ascult\u0103: s\u0103 pot urca cu el, dup\u0103 ce-l v\u0103zusem venind dinspre
maidan cu un porumbel \u00een m\u00e2n\u0103, s\u0103 pot urca sc\u0103rile acestui pod, noaptea,
pe \u00eentuneric, \u015fi s\u0103-l simt acolo, l\u00e2ng\u0103 mine, c\u00e2nd am s\u0103 \u00eencerc cheile, una
dup\u0103 alta, \u015fi apoi, deodat\u0103, una din chei se va potrivi \u015fi u\u015fa se va deschide
gem\u00e2nd \u015fi vom p\u0103trunde aici, \u00een acest pod, unde n-a mai intrat nimeni de
foarte mul\u0163i ani, de c\u00e2nd a murit \u015fi ultimul b\u0103iat al v\u0103duvei generalului
calomfir... ascult\u0103! nu m\u0103 \u00eentrerupe! spuse ridic\u00e2nd bra\u0163ul, c\u0103ci abia acum
ne apropiem de scena cu adev\u0103rat dramatic\u0103. ascult\u0103 \u015fi imagineaz\u0103-\u0163i. am
intrat \u00eencet, \u00eencet, \u00eendrept\u00e2ndu-ne spre fund, acolo unde se g\u0103se\u015fte lada.
\u015ei c\u00e2te nu s-ar fi putut \u00eent\u00e2mpla! dumnezeule, c\u00e2te nu s- ar fi putut \u00eent\u00e2mpla!
o biat\u0103 lantern\u0103 electric\u0103 de buzunar. abia mai lumineaz\u0103, c\u0103ci o am din
timpul r\u0103zboiului, de c\u00e2nd eram cerceta\u015f. \u00cen orice clip\u0103 s-ar fi putut stinge,
\u015fi am fi r\u0103mas pe \u00eentunerec. \u015ei nici m\u0103car nu eram unul l\u00e2ng\u0103 altul. eu o
luasem \u00eenainte, gr\u0103bind pasul, c\u0103ci presim\u0163eam c\u0103 bateria e pe sf\u00e2r\u015fite. \u015ei
ne-am fi trezit deodat\u0103 \u00een \u00eentunerec, pierdu\u0163i aici, \u00een acest pod plin cu l\u0103zi
\u015fi cufere acoperite de praf \u015fi p\u00e2nze de p\u0103ianjen, \u015fi nici n-a\u015f fi \u00eendr\u0103znit s\u0103
strig, s\u0103 te chem. \u015eopteam doar: vlad, parc\u0103 vlad sau vladimir te cheam\u0103,
nu e a\u015fa? vladimir, m\u0103 auzi?... dar nu m\u0103 puteai auzi, pentru c\u0103
r\u0103m\u0103sese\u015fi mult \u00een urma mea \u015fi, orbec\u0103ind prin \u00eentunerec, te dep\u0103rtai tot
mai mult de mine, \u015fi nu m\u0103 puteai auzi. chiar dac\u0103 a\u015f fi \u00eendr\u0103znit s\u0103 ridic
glasul, tot nu m-ai fi putut auzi, pentru c\u0103 tocmai atunci \u00eencepuse s\u0103 bat\u0103
v\u00e2ntul, \u015fi aici, \u00een podul acesta, d\u0103r\u0103p\u0103nat de la bombardament, unde
v\u00e2ntul se aude sinistru, ca la teatru, c\u00e2nd se preg\u0103te\u015fte s\u0103 izbucneasc\u0103
furtuna...

se opri brusc, sufl\u00e2nd greu, extenuat.

\u2014 nu m-a\u015f fi r\u0103t\u0103cit, vorbi calm celalt. nu m-a\u015f fi r\u0103t\u0103cit, pentru c\u0103
sunt obi\u015fnuit cu \u00eentunerecul. am copil\u0103rit la munte. nu mi-e fric\u0103 de
\u00eentunerec, nici de v\u00e2nt...

\u2014 vas\u0103zic\u0103, numaiasta ai \u00een\u0163eles? \u00eel \u00eentrerupse ieronim cu o nea\u015ftep-
tat\u0103 triste\u0163e \u00een glas. ai dreptate c\u0103 a\u015f fi vrut s\u0103 te sperii, s\u0103 te pun la
\u00eencercare \u00een \u00eentunerec. elev iconaru vladimir, nu ai imagina\u0163ie. nu e\u015fti
singurul, de altfel. aproape nimeni nu mai are imagina\u0163ie. tr\u0103im vremuri
grele. cine mai are timp s\u0103-\u015fi imagineze o alt\u0103 lume, cualtfel de oameni, o
lume mai poetic\u0103, \u015fi deci maiadev\u0103rat\u0103?...
