Je l'avais lancée le samedi 10 mars vers onze heures du matin, après mes deux cafés, consciente de ce que je disais et aussi du fait que je le disais pour lui faire plaisir, sans soupçonner une seconde que cette word innocente serait celle qui me ferait chuter tout au fond du gouffre où je suis. Pourtant des words, j'en ai dit.
J'ai trop dit je t'aime alors que je savais que cela le fatiguait, j'ai dit des choses intelligentes aussi, puis des conneries comme tout le monde. Mais je n'aurai pas survécu à cette phrase-là. Samuel a répondu pourquoi pas ? Ça te dirait ?
J'ai dit oui ça me dirait, on n'est jamais allés à Blanès, ce n'est pas si loin, une heure en voiture depuis Barcelone, à peine plus. On s'est mis d'accord, on irait le lendemain. Le soir, on s'est couchés en chien de fusil dans des draps blancs comme un linceul, j'ai respiré son odeur du soir, un peu âcre, et senti l. a. chaleur de sa cuisse sur laquelle j'avais posé l. a. major. Je me suis endormie heureuse sûrement, sans doute, pourquoi pas ? Je ne savais plus bien à présent, et le matin du dimanche eleven mars, en fin de matinée, nous avons pris chacun un livre et nous sommes partis pour Blanès.»
