Avec ce long recul, toutes ces passions paraissent infantiles et sans importance par rapport à la vie. La vie d'un homme est brève. Tout ce temps passé à se déchirer et à se donner des coups d’épingle fait perdre le moment du bonheur. La guerre ne profite jamais aux combattants, fussent-ils les vainqueurs. Ces piètres batailles, dans ce milieu confiné, leur faisaient perdre la véritable grandeur de la vie. * * * Juste au-dessous du restaurant Cinco se trouvaient le grand bâtiment de l’école laïque et le fronton, de l’autre côté de la route qui montait des Aldudes.

Nous évoquons l’avenir, le mien, tout proche... Il parle de son pays, privé de médecin depuis plusieurs mois. Je m’étonne. - Plusieurs jeunes sont venus voir. Aucun n’a osé s’y installer. Ils sont repartis aussitôt... - Pourquoi ? - ... Ce pays est trop dur, trop pénible. Il n’y a que des maisons très éloignées dans la montagne. Le médecin ne peut les atteindre qu’à cheval ou à mulet. Il lui faut souvent des heures pour faire l’aller et retour, quel que soit le temps. - Mais alors, il doit posséder son propre cheval ?

Aucune allusion à son départ ne filtrait au travers de ses projets d’avenir. Il jouissait dans la maison d’une autorité qui ne faisait que s’affirmer. Son mariage avec l’une des filles marqua le début d’une transformation progressive de ce restaurant dont la réputation ne fit que grandir par la suite. Bien situé, vers le haut de la rue, ses grandes baies vitrées donnaient sur un petit bosquet de grands chênes. Son atmosphère était détendue et ouverte. Très apprécié des touristes, il fut certainement à l’origine d'une certaine émancipation du village.
