Sample text

Ausgehend von diesen Überlegungen, wandern meine Gedanken zu der Leiche von heute Morgen, und plötzlich lässt es mich nicht länger kalt, dass der Tote einmal ein lebendiger Mensch gewesen ist, und ich weine wie ein Schlosshund, dass der gekreuzigte Mann solche Qualen erleiden musste. Am nächsten Tag laufe ich mittags eilig den Laugavegur hinunter, um Iðunn und den Liebhaber des Gekreuzigten zu treffen. Ich finde es seltsam, dass ich gestern Abend so traurig gewesen bin, denn heute finde ich das Leben lebenswert.

Ich werde dich dem Pfarrer vorstellen», sagt Egill und zieht mich im Schlepptau in den Saal. » Der sogenannte Pfarrer ist ein schlanker Mann mittleren Alters mit dunklem Haar. Er trägt ein kragenloses Hemd und eine altmodische Uhr. » �Herzlich willkommen, Magni», sagt Geir und begrüßt mich. Er hat große Hände, und sein Handschlag ist fest und warm, und er schaut mir dabei tief in die Augen. » Sein Lächeln ist warmherzig, und er ist mir auf Anhieb sympathisch. �Netter Kerl», meint Egill, als wir uns auf der Suche nach zwei freien Plätzen zwischen den Klappstühlen hindurchzwängen.

Noch eine Frage», beeile ich mich zu sagen, da ich an Iðunns Miene erkennen kann, dass sie sich von ihm verabschieden will. » Er schaut uns abwechselnd mit fragendem Blick an. Iðunn greift in ihre Tasche, nimmt die DIN-A4-Fotos heraus und zeigt sie ihm. �Ja, das hier, das war oben im Schlafzimmer. Ich weiß nicht, von wem es ist. Nonni hatte es schon, bevor ich ihn kennengelernt habe. Es war einfach immer da. » Iðunn und ich schauen uns einen Augenblick in die Augen, und ich weiß, dass wir dasselbe denken.
