8 For a long, long time, she confided to him, we have been in combat with the sea. On the very rare occasions when she is blue, soft, one might suppose her to be happy. But that would not last. Her smell says so anyway, a smell of rot ( if it is not her bitterness). Here I should explain the matter of the waves. It is terribly complicated, and the sea . . I implore you, have confidence in me. Would I want to deceive you? She is not only a word. She is not only a fear. She exists; I swear it to you; one sees her constantly.
What does that mean? There is surely something horrible in it. And in other days when, as I have already told you, we were younger still, we were afraid. Someone might have taken advantage of our confusion. Someone might have said to us: "You see, we’re going to bury you. ” And we did not dare run too much: Out of breath, at the end of a race, arriving in front of a ditch all prepared, and no time to say a word, no breath. Tell me, just what is the secret in regard to this? 7 There are constantly, she told him further, lions in the village, who walk about without any hindrance at all.
But no weapon . . Whereby the temptation to add one. One only. A horn. Thereby the unicorn. The horse, terribly nervous, is aerophagous. Hypersensitive, he clamps his jaws, holds his breath, then re leases it, making the walls of his nasal cavities vibrate loudly. That is why this noble beast, who feeds on air and grass alone, produces only straw turds and thunderous fragrant farts. Fragrant thunderisms. What am I saying, feeds on air? Gets drunk on it. Sniffs it, savors it, snorts it. He rushes into it, shakes his mane in it, kicks up his hind legs in it.
