The Granny’s Fool
I always thought of him as a fool.
Only a fool is not quite what you think. . . .
A fool is someone whose thoughts are incomprehensible. . . We hear them, but we can’t understand them.
A silly person’s thoughts are confused, but they can be understood. . . not like a crazy person’s. . .
The fool’s not like that. . . – some pieces, often incoherent, but something is hiding behind them. . . I can’t understand what.
Well, let them think that he’s crazy, this boy, . . . – it’s safer. . . – he’s the last of the O. . . maybe they won’t kill him then. . .
That’s what I thought when I tried to give them something to eat. . . so that he doesn’t starve to death – he’s just a baby, . . . he won’t survive on what he can find himself.
His parents were killed recently. . .
At first, he didn’t show up, he was probably hiding. . . then he started coming. . .
he was hungry. . . and was hoping for something. . .
I liked him before – gray-eyed. . . like father. . . fair-haired. . .
he smiles when I call. . . I’ll bend my fingers so softly. . . so they won’t see.
They saw it, of course. . . they guessed that I was feeding him. . . They said, “There goes Granny’s fool again. . . “
. . . Yes, I was so old back then. . . my daughter had a son. . .
Well, . . . I call him, put something in his hand to eat, and tell him by thought to go away. . . not to stay here too long. . .
He understood everything. . . he smiles at me with his eyes and goes straight on. . .
Then he disappeared. . . I thought he was hiding somewhere. . . Then I found out that they found and beat him almost to death. . . these. . .
They dragged the body on a rope. . . it was covered in blood. . . They shouted that he would be executed for disobedience. . .
Execution for disobedience should be seen by everyone. . . otherwise, they would just kill him and throw. . .
He saw me as he was being dragged. . . I couldn’t tell him anything. . . because of the pain, he couldn’t hear my thoughts. . .
He didn’t call anyone while they were torturing him. . . I called, I asked Death to take him away faster. . .
She didn’t hear me. . . or she couldn’t take him.
He was just like his father. . . even though he was little. His father was from O. . . and he never submit to These..
He was put on a stake. . . not immediately, of course, they mocked at first. . .
He died in the morning. . . I felt it. . . I went to him. . . I wanted to remove the body and hide it in the rocks on the mountain.
When dawn broke, I had already hidden the body. . . they would never find it. . . they are afraid to go to the mountain because of the snakes. . .
They’ve been running around the village all day. . . they were looking for me. . . they knew, understood that it was me who took off the boy. . .
I didn’t want to live any more. . . he was my last joy, my fool. . . granny’s.
I watched These run from afar. . .
Then they found me.
Who am I?
The mother of the Star. . . if you know who the Stars are. . .
She was put on the same stake… I don’t want to say the rest.
