Ajuizando pelo carácter mais que sucinto das descrições urbanas feitas até agora, tenham criado no seu espírito a ideia de que tudo isto se está a passar numa cidade de tamanho mediano, isto é, abaixo do milhão de habitantes, é a altura de informar, dizíamos, que, muito pelo contrário, este professor Tertuliano Máximo Afonso é um dos cinco milhões e pico de seres humanos que, com diferenças importantes de bem-estar e outras sem a menor possibilidade de mútuas comparações, vivem na gigantesca metrópole que se estende pelo que antigamente haviam sido montes, vales e planícies, e agora é um sucessiva duplicação horizontal e vertical de um labirinto, de começo agravada por componentes que designaremos por diagonais, mas que, no entanto, com o decorrer do tempo, se revelaram até certo ponto equilibradores da caótica malha urbana, pois estabeleceram linhas de fronteira que, paradoxalmente, em lugar de terem separado, aproximaram.

E depois, perguntou o professor de História, como uma criança que não sabe que não adianta perguntar pelo que ainda não sucedeu, que farei depois disto, que farei depois de saber que esse homem entrou em quinze ou vinte filmes, que, tanto quanto pude verificar até agora, além de recepcionista, foi caixa de banco e auxiliar de enfermagem, que farei. Tinha a resposta na ponta da língua, mas só a deu um minuto mais tarde, Conhecê-lo. Por causalidade ou desconhecida intenção, alguém terá ido dizer ao director da escola que o doutor Tertuliano Máximo Afonso se encontrava na 52 sala dos professores, a fazer horas para o almoço segundo todas as aparências, uma vez que a sua única ocupação desde que ali entrara tinha sido a de ler os jornais.

Seja o que for que se encontre ali dentro, a Tertuliano Máximo Afonso não lhe apetece ouvi-lo. Para se distrair, mais porque o estômago tivesse reclamado alimento, foi à cozinha preparar uma sanduíche e abrir outra cerveja. Sentou-se num banco, mastigou sem prazer a escassa comida, enquanto o pensamento, deixado à solta, se entregava aos seus devaneios. Percebendo que a vigilância consciente tinha esmorecido numa espécie de delíquio, o senso comum, que depois da sua enérgica primeira intervenção havia andado não se sabe por onde, insinuou-se entre dois fragmentos inconclusos daquele vago discorrer e perguntou a Tertuliano Máximo Afonso se ele se sentia feliz com a situação que tinha criado.
