minutes of silence

They lacked eyes. It was the closed eyelids that irritated at first. Unlocked but admittedly, but with no chance to read in the faces. Eery somehow. Ingeniously staged. “They could think of everything now, God, children, slit their bodies, fuck them.” Thomas Gregorian chuckled. He liked what he saw. Waiting for anyone. Anything. He studied the picture more closely. Probably a spiritist meeting, estimated to have been painted in the 30’s. The young woman, who had climbed to the old mansion’s storage room with him, grimaced in disgust: “That’s horrible, that makes me goosebump.” Thomas Gregorian grinned. “Intent, I suppose.” He had freed Edgar Gregorian’s image of dust and cobwebs and now kept it at eye level. Gregorian must have painted it shortly before his death. A brother of his grandfather, who had died in a bizarre way. He and his wife had been found with severed throats in front of the brick fireplace on the ground floor. The murderer was never caught, nor had he stolen anything, but had just walked in to see blood spurting, pretty fountains of white necks lost on the stone floor. Thomas stared at the picture and was impressed. Strange bland scene. Nevertheless, he felt invited to participate in something that seemed important. What had been so damn important? To dream together, to hear, to fuck together? Who with whom? The picture had something, no doubt. All five were elegantly dressed and perfectly styled, the beautiful blonde in red velvet, velvet came, the brunette in mossy taffeta. Maybe silk. The men wore their hair tightly combed back, presumably soaking wet and sticking to too much pomade, but that was the only way it worked. They did not look up, did not look at each other. They kept their eyelids closed as in silent prayer. Her eyes, whose color was probably meaningless to the artist, were blanked in emptiness. Empty for the one who did not know better. Could know. Thomas tucked the picture under his right arm, rummaged with his left hand the top drawer of the dresser on which it had been lying. He fingered out a brownish writing pad decorated with dark red roses, put the picture back, leafed through it hastily, read a few lines, neatly dated. Eleventh October 1936. That was the last entry. Basically logical. On the twelfth Edith and Edgar Gregorian were slaughtered by a madman in front of the fireplace. Of course nothing happened after that. Thomas was excited. “I do not believe it, look at that, Lisa, that belonged to my great-aunt.” Lisa Thoessen, feeling increasingly uncomfortable in the dark store, crossed her arms over her chest. “And?” “What and?” He sounded annoyed. “That’s family, man, my damned family, Cosa nostra, you understand, I’ll take that with me.” He turned around. Talked to the wall obviously, twisted his eyes wryly, reached back to the picture, stuck the notebook cumbersome in the waistband of his jeans. Lisa was already on the descent, cautiously groping herself down with her feet in impractical high-heeled sandals. ” felt nonsensical panic rise in itself. Great God, WHAT was that? Did he really say that? No, do not say so. Not said. Thought. He had thought: The bitch is not long. He needed air urgently. Everything here smelled of the dead. Moder and otherwise. Disgusting. Did the little adorable bitch witt that too? He grinned again, could not help himself, shook himself, climbed down. felt nonsensical panic rise in itself. Great God, WHAT was that?

Thomas sat with his eyes closed in front of the fireplace and had the cozy patter of the fire in his ear. Gorgeous!
