Vatanescu was surprised that Yegor had managed to send a gang of assailants made up of local residents after him so quickly. Don’t kneecap me. Don’t torture me. Don’t kill me. The youngsters ran past Vatanescu towards a bush. As the crime squad combed the bushes for something, a creature hobbled out from between their legs. Vatanescu caught it in his hands and hid it in his jacket. Whatever you are, you are smaller than that group of human animals. The youngsters’ heads popped up from the bushes.

Yegor shouted. Vatanescu turned the steering wheel the other way, the hare disappeared, and all that remained was Yegor Kugar’s indissoluble rage at the fact that someone had defied his orders. You don’t run life over, you go round it. On the corner of a street between the Art Museum and the ‘Sausage’ building, Yegor ejected Vatanescu from the van and threw a sheet of cardboard and an empty disposable coffee cup after him. Then he gave him a quick rundown on the terms of his future employment.

He tried to curl up in his own armpit, tried to forget the cold. In spite of the adrenaline and the cold, his constant tiredness got the upper hand. But we shall not let Vatanescu fall asleep. The bushes rustled. Something moved. Vatanescu wondered if there were snakes in this land. Then from the south he began to hear a babbling that grew into a unique and universal shouting. The shouting approached at a running pace; a group of young men threw stones and brandished sticks. Vatanescu was surprised that Yegor had managed to send a gang of assailants made up of local residents after him so quickly.
