The First Night
A NovelBook - 2011
The legend goes that when you are in your mother's womb, you know all about the mystery of creation, the origins of the world, until the end of time. When you are born, a messenger flies over your cradle and puts a finger on your lips so that the secret of life will never escape. The finger erases your memory forever and leaves a mark, which all of us have above our upper lip. All of us, except me. The day I was born, the messenger forgot to come and see me, and I remember everything.
