From high overhead, the sun cast bright stripes across the pine-needle floor of the clearing. It now stood directly over Barth. A flitting ray struck his closed eyes. Barth awoke and stood up as if it was the most natural thing in the world. The animals ran away. He looked around him. The door of the hut was still open, he looked in, everything was topsy turvy. Then he believed it at last. It wasn’t a dream but a miracle. But whom could he tell? W hom could he tell about it? W ohlbrecht and Alois won’t come back.
But I don’t need him any more, I’ll stay up here, I like it here. Wohlbrecht has done his share. He saved my life. The starling had long since flown away. Barth didn’t mind. He could walk back and forth and he could talk. Nothing else mattered. Barth began to straighten out the hut. He counted the edibles and put them in the crate. There wasn’t much, but if he was careful he could make it last for three or four weeks. Wohlbrecht stood before the mirror, getting ready. Every thing depended on his appointment with Hochrieder.
You can imagine. It was pretty tough. Day in day out upstairs and downstairs, emptying the chamberpot, emptying the pee bottle. Feeding him. Wiping his mouth and everything else. Making the bed. Reading him stories. Shopping. Taking out the slop jar. Up stairs, downstairs. And every minute: Hermann, the child is calling you. Hermann, the child is bored. Hermann, don’t keep telling him those blood-and-thunder stories. The nerve of those people. The way they kept me running. Those . . those Polish Jews.
