La centralita estaba al lado del reloj marcador. –Bien –dije, acercándome a ella; el portero volvió a su puesto–. O por lo menos eso dicen todos. En confianza te voy a decir que... tiene un problema en el pecho y... nadie me supo decir qué es. –Qué pena. Espero que se mejore –dijo Mónica. –Sí. Gracias –le contesté, y me causó gracia pensar que de mis palabras ella no podría extraer ni la más pálida idea de qué era lo que le estaba pasando a mi padre. Yo tampoco tenía, a decir verdad, esa idea pálida.

Ella me abrazó. –Es que estoy preocupada por ti –dijo–. Eso que me contó Diana, y lo que te pasó ahora... estás mal de salud, ¿verdad? ¿Por qué no sacás hora para médico, ya que estás acá? –No tengo ningún problema de salud, Beatriz. Si me descompuse ahora fue por... ver a papá en ese estado. ¿Qué le hicieron, Beatriz?
