The cry of a baby

The cry of a baby

Somewhere in Manhattan. Day IX

Lights filtering through the window, great rejoicing in the room, the book was somewhere on the shelves. The sick doctor tried to breathe while he was opening his eyes. Nobody looked at him. Where was Lorraine? She might be one of the bodies with white coats, but he couldn’t recognize her. Before he lost consciousness, he could hear something like the cry of a baby, something like the roar of a beast, something like a mother embracing her baby, something like a baby killing its father.

‘Would you be able to kill him?’ she asked silently.

In my dreams, she was still with me.

‘You hated him… you hated him when he talked about your book, do you remember? DO you remember his expression?

‘I remember, Lorraine… and I can hear now our baby’s crying.’

‘It’s so lovely, Alex… I would like you to see its face now.’

‘Show me it, show me it now.’ The room began converting small… ‘Time, time, time is breathing…’

‘The injection point should be moved clockwise each day.’ And she smiled. ‘Do you remember him? He is an interesting man. First time, we met in a conference about French Baroque… but he was not interested in art. Are you? See it, I will show it now.’

I had to get that out of my sight, I had to contain me, I had to wait for something better that it.

‘Don’t you like our child, Alex? Don’t you like our creation, doctor? It’s ours, my friend… Do you remember our past days in Paris, Alex?’

‘If it were ours, I would take care of it… I wouldn’t leave you alone, Lorraine…’

Do you remember now?’

‘I don’t, sorry.’

‘I know you do, little boy… He’s coming now. There’s no exit for you now. Judgment is coming.’

And the signal comes…

And W.W. Wilson knocked at the door twice.

‘Just a dream and nothing  more.’

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
