5 still with halos of street lamps - a man walking along a canal. He was a man
not very old, but worn out by life, to have stayed out and had drunk too much wi
ne. This man (say that 'Ali) had no home and no real job. When people saw him, t
hey said: 'Look! The estrassier. "That's how people call South scavengers who wi
ll trash bin and pick up everything that can be resold, cardboard, old clothes,
glass jars, even radio batteries that recharge very well by letting the sun. To
collect all this, he had a stroller-pram from yesteryear, with a beautiful black
roof and spoked wheels, which was a slightly veiled. For larger objects, it was
a handcart. Ali was heading toward the bridge. There he lived, and he kept all
the treasures he had collected during the night. This morning, Ali was tired. He
thought of the good gulp of wine he was drinking before lying on a bed of cardb
oard in its military cover that sheltered from the cold like a tent. He also tho
ught that the gray cat would be sleeping under the blanket around and purring. A
li loved her cat. He had called Cinderella, because of its color. When Ali appro
ached the tent, he saw something unexpected: instead of the cat, there was a box
ajar, someone had placed there. Ali immediately realized that this board was no
t his. The estrassier stood for a moment to look at, full of mistrust. Who had p
ut that box there on his bed? Maybe one other guy from the rag had decided to se
ttle here under the bridge? He left the board and say, "Now under the bridge is
my home." Ali felt anger take. Suddenly he remembered that he had been a soldier
, once in his youth, and it was mounted to the assault amidst the noise of bulle
ts. It was there were very long, but he remembered the beating of his heart this
time, the warm blood in his cheeks. He approached the board, determined to thro
w away on the docks, when he heard something. Something incredible, impossible.
A voice called, in the cardboard, a child's voice, the voice of a newborn baby.
It was so unexpected that Ali stopped and looked around to see whence this voice
. But under the bridge, was deserted, there was only cold water from the canal a
nd the road passed over, where the cars had started to roll. Then out of the box
again the voice, clear, with a note of impatience. It called for repeated cries
, and as Ali was still delayed, arms dangling, his voice began to cry. At the sa
me time, Ali saw that the box moved, stirred by the beating of the interior. "Ca
ts! "Ali said aloud. But at the same time he knew that the kittens we have forgo
tten in a canal not that voice. He went further, pushed the edges of the box wit
h his hands blackened and cracked, and with infinite care he took out a baby, a
girl no bigger than a doll, so tiny that Ali was to shake hands so it does not s
lip, so light it seemed to hold only a handful of leaves. "She is the child from
under the bridge," thought he. [...] In his life, Ali had never seen anything m
ore beautiful, nothing more delicate and lighter than this little girl, this liv
ing doll. He held her in his arms, not daring to approach her face to his shaggy
beard. The cold air rushing under the bridge and sent tossing papers pushed the
empty box, and Ali suddenly realized that the baby was naked and his skin was r
ed with cold, bristling with thousands of balls because of the creepy.
A beautiful winter morning - a morning mist, when the light of dawn merges
