Adi sets out to regain his place in the newspaper.
The subject is difficult to find. He examines his old works. He thinks of Imlie. Finds what to write.
He goes to the market. An old woman is selling carrots.
He approaches the woman and asks permission for the interview. The woman does not speak, but nods.
When you think that she is not very talkative Aunt
-Use words sparingly.
Adi smiles and asks how the carrots are grown to bring up the topic. Auntie
-This green on the top sacrifices itself to the sun.
So that the carrots can be fed under the ground. Sacrifice.
The lower part also takes root, struggling to find a few drops of water. Effort.
They are different, but they do their part to stay together. Relationship .
And they grow together.
When the time comes and the harvest, they become a profit for the farmer. Income.
They are used in a thousand and one dishes at your table.
They are delicious. They become vitamins. They will help you fill your hungry stomach. Food.
They combine with other vegetables and create new flavors. Kids.
Did you think it was a simple vegetable?
– Oh no, you told me about a little miracle.
-Dont exaggerate. Aunt smiles.
-You are imlie’s husband, right?
-Do you know him?
-She bought from me a few times. We chatted. A smart, simple village girl.
She has a hundred times more miracle than carrots. Do you know Imlie’s value ?
-I… Adi doesn’t know exactly what to say.
All of the things I told about carrots have their time. If you miss those times, they are wasted.
Do you appreciate your time with Imlie?
Do not be late…
Adi wants to answer but doesn’t know what to say.
Quietly, he starts walking towards the house, hoping that the rain that will begin soon will hide his tears.
