Chapter Two/The Construction/part 3 : On that day, the snow was falling heavily on the town. Pierre went down the stairs two at a time, quickly finding himself in the courtyard. It was the last week of school before the holidays. He rushed as fast as he could to the bus stop. Elodie was already waiting for him there. They had gotten into the habit of meeting every other week. Their conversations were always animated, but in spite of their closeness there was never the one move or sign that would have triggered the beginning of a romance.

A Life of Passions Chapter Two: The Construction, Part Two Pierre started school at the end of September. He had built it up into something of a “mountain”, but he quickly realised that everything was simple and easy and that his initial reticence had been out of proportion. By the end of the second day he was even enjoying taking the bus to Clermont-Ferrand.

Chapter One, the Awakening of the Senses, part 5: Jean had already known for several months. One evening in the winter of 1975, Charles rang the doorbell at Jean and Marie’s home. Marie opened the door and saw Charles, still as solidly built, still with his gentle smile.

Chapter One, the Awakening of the Senses, part 4: The holidays passed very quickly with cultural visits, beaches, ice creams on terraces, night dances and night clubs.

Chapter One / part 2: The Awakening of the Senses Of course he has to make a decision, but the path to take isn’t obvious to him… not at all. Making up his mind about the future isn’t the most important thing. Besides, he feels good at home, he’d like everything to stay the way it is. His mother would like to keep him too, her last, her final little one. “Her little darling” his four older sisters called him. Four girls before she had the boy she wanted so much. Each time it was a girl. She’d told her husband:
