Elle gouverne le royaume des Ténèbres ! Alors Lévi le Lévi s’approcha de moi et, de son doigt, il désigna le manuscrit que j’étais en train de recopier où était écrit. Elle souillera son nom et le nom de son père et le nom de son mari… Elle qui salit sa réputation, jette aussi le déshonneur sur ses parents et sur tous ses proches… et sur son père.

Depuis toujours, j’ai recherché l’union, je peux même dire que j’y ai consacré ma vie.
