(-... And about the house in which you held? About a building? Really remember nothing? - Anything. And not that that I do
not remember - I do not know. Have brought me there at night, in the closed van... I remember: any court yard, a rain down-
pour, black walls around, any window burning... Even how many floors there were, and that I will not tell - I do not know. A
riddle full of secrets...
And on walk you never deduced? - What walk, milok? When? Between procedures? So between procedures you sleep an
unhealthy dream and look nightmares about women... Here that I have very well remembered, so it is a lobby. Happened on
Vitebsk station? And so precisely same zalo, a tile two-coloured underfoot, a ceiling - glazed, and any, like iron, openwork
lattices on walls...)... Instead of walks at them regular meetings with a companion operupolnomochennym have been got.
Two times a week plus as is required.
Who that to whom has told, when, what for, and who herewith was present. The usual system very convenient, by the way,

"And I Leshka-Kaloshka! Laboratory you remember?" Is not present, it does not remember any laboratory, shoulders only
shakes. "And Synulju, whether that, you do not remember?" And Synuli any does not remember... I See that says lies
