A unique dreamlike story that begins as a letter to S (Sedric), recounting how the female speaker “felt my shadow disengage itself” before she goes to deliver a message to Chardric, Prince of History, who peacefully smoked his water pipe in his American dwelling as the speaker sits upon his beautiful Chinese rug. Just then, “a feminine Illusion crashed through the window: it was the most beautiful Pregnant Hippopotamus I have seen.” The story continues from there as the rug transports them to a papyrus patch and to the Nile and back, before concluding, “Can you understand my succumbing to Chardric? He was a bit like you.”
