Devastated, he will take his horse and leave without a destination. However, in the middle of the way, the Old Man of the River will appear for him and the two will have a beautiful conversation.
“I heard him [Zé Leôncio] talking more to the mother in the kitchen. I also heard when the mother said that you told Juma [Alanis Guillen] that I’m not your grandson”, says Tadeu. “I was talking about blood, not of ‘love’. Of course ‘you’ is my grandson!”, the Old Man will reply.
“But how can I be his grandson, if I’m not his ‘thread’?”will ask the young man. “And who said that ‘you’ is not his ‘thread’?”, the veteran will insist. “I don’t have the same blood as him, ‘old man’. I’m a ‘thread’ of ‘muie’ from currutela, who doesn’t even know who my father is”, will hit the pawn.
TADEU, GRANDSON OF LOVE
After that, the Old Man of the River will insist on him being his grandson of the heart. “I already told you and I’ll say it again: I’m not talking about blood, I’m talking about love! I heard ‘you’ playing his horn, saying goodbye to him. That’s when I saw that ‘you’ is my grandson, yes, because I’m the only one who plays the horn like that”, answer to. “‘You’ couldn’t have gotten a ‘mió’ father in this life”, will complete the experienced, referring to Zé Leôncio.
