Obedience and courageEvery time that we ask Grandmother Carlotta, for example, for something more precise on the first-day-of, with a mysterious manner, she replies that we will only need to be courageous and obedient. She says this with eyes that are brighter than the mirror in the small bathroom that Dad continuously polishes. And she adds: - My children, you will see, it will be unforgettable! You, Luca, will have to be strong enough for both of you! And you, Luna, will have to be obedient enough for the two of you!
It’s a pity that Grandmother Carlotta never learns… We are twins, that’s true. And we are almost as identical as two coins, that’s also true. However, I’m the one who should be obedient for the two of us, seeing that between the two of us I am the one who is good at obeying orders, just like a super policeman, while Luna is an expert at beind disobedient! Just as she should be the one to be strong enough for both of us, because Luna is as courageous as ten dragons, strong like three cyclope, awake like an eagle that never sleeps. I, instead, am a true, very great coward.
