A Visit to the Cinema

By: Vougar Aslanov

The most interesting and important event for the boys of the old, already semi-derelict school of the small town was going to the movies and the following discussion of the new film. But most had rarely the opportunity to go to the cinema and everyone who was lucky to see a new film retold for days again and again the contents until all the others knew the whole movie by heart without seeing it themselves. Especially the younger pupils lacked the money, but even the older ones had often not enough to by a ticket. Because for a ticket one had to pay twenty kopeks, otherwise one could not enter the cinema....

The Milkman

By: Vougar Aslanov

The book keeper of the hospital of a small provincial town came one day home very tired. He had not the least desire to have dinner and so he decided to lay down at once and to sleep. In recent years it often happened, that he, after coming home in the evening, had dinner and immediately went to bed without a word to his already grown up children or his wife. She became more and more grumpy in view of his seclusion. He only wanted to sleep, to sleep soundly till daybreak of the next and probably again undesirably day which he always impatiently anticipated, only to immerse again in his coma. For any reason he remembered this evening his childhood in a state between vigil and slumber....

L'appartement : (nouvelle): (nouvelle)

By: Claude SIMON

Avez-vous été jamais pris dans une dimension déformée de l’espace-temps ? Si c’est le cas, cette histoire vous rappellera peut-être des souvenirs lointains. Sinon, vous serez au moins prévenu et armé pour affronter une telle expérience. Mais attention : si vous tentez de sortir de cette situation grâce à votre raisonnement rationnel, préparez-vous à des moments difficiles à vivre....

Lorsqu’il atteignit l’immeuble, personne ne l’attendait. Le soleil de l’après-midi brûlait la rue, mais heureusement l’entrée se trouvait du côté ombragé. Il poussa un soupir de soulagement en s’asseyant sur les marches en pierre fraîches du seuil. Il devait rencontrer quelqu’un ici, mais la chaleur et la marche dans les rues poussiéreuses avaient embrouillé son esprit et sa mémoire. Avec un peu de chance, ce repos à l’ombre l’aiderait à recouvrer ses sens. Il songeait encore à son état lorsqu’il entendit une voix tout près de lui. - Bonjour, je suis Claudine Bertin, ravie de vous connaître. Je suis contente que vous ayez pu venir. - Tout le plaisir est pour moi, Mademoiselle Bertin. - S’il vous plaît, appelez-moi Claudine. - D’accord, pas de problème. Alors vous m’appellerez Jean-Hubert. Il se leva et serra la main tendue. C’était une surprise agréable de voir cette jeune femme énergique alors qu’il s’attendait à rencontrer un agent immobilier chauve et grisonnant, épais et fade. Il eut cependant une sensation légèrement désagréable en touchant sa main. Sa peau était froide et rêche, un surprenant cont...

El tiempo en los ojos

By: Alfonso Chacon Rodriguez

Los recuerdos se agolpan, abriendo paso como abre un cuchillo la piel: ¿cómo traer de vuelta el pasado sin que regrese el dolor? ¿Cómo justificar la traición, el olvido, el abandono, sin importar la causa, los motivos?...

Pero entre los gritos ella no entiende su nombre, no descifra el "¡Tita, Tita!", conque la interpelan sobre la algarabía del chaparrón, en tanto su hija la tira de la mano, porque un auto sube la cuesta y de ella desciende un espectro que es copia del pasado: el cabello rojizo y una mirada amarilla con una mujer y dos niñas de trenzas negras detrás, y su hija se detiene en su tirón, antes de gritar, conforme sus ojos oscilan hacia el diluvio que nubla la visión, la tierra mojada que rechaza los golpes del líquido ajeno, la tierra endurecida que no sabe ahora, como no supo aquel lejano día aceptar de inmediato el agua, como ella, como la tierra que no se abrió ni se abre como ella ni como la piel cuando la traza un machete afilado. No, piensa, la tierra no otorga de inmediato su complacencia al arado, incluso si ha sido largo tiempo abandonada; no es como ella, entregada al cuerpo oloroso que la extendió sobre el catre y la penetró en un mutuo gemido que fue como un sacrificio ritual, dos cuerpos sudorosos por el calor de la tarde que permanecieron tendidos, mientras la tarde caía y ella pensaba en Ramiro sin pensar en su propio c...
