O sol já se tinha despegado da linha do horizonte, era dia claro, apenas umas poucas nuvens boiando no céu, oxalá não venha a aquecer demasiado, derretem-­‐se os músculos, às vezes ale parece que o suor se vai pôr a ferver na pele. O comandante chamou o boieiro, explicou-­‐lhe ao que iam e recomendou-­‐ lhe que observasse bem os animais, se os houvesse, porque deles dependeria a rapidez da expedição e um breve regresso a lisboa. O boieiro disse que sim senhor duas vezes, embora a ele pouco lhe importasse, não vivia em lisboa, mas numa aldeia não longe chamada mem martins, ou algo deste jeito.

Infelizmente não tinha sido só um ameaço. Por duas vezes, antes de chegarem a porto salvo, se tal se podia chamar a duas dezenas de casebres afastados uns dos outros, com uma igreja descabeçada, isto é, só com meia torre, sem nave industrial à vista, ainda lhes caíram em cima duas bátegas, que o comandante, já perito neste sistema de comunicações, interpretou logo como dois novos avisos do céu, decerto impaciente por não ver que estivessem a ser tomadas as medidas preventivas necessárias, as que poupariam à ensopada caravana resfriamentos, constipações, defluxos e mais do que prováveis pneumonias.

A esta hora já ele recebera os primeiros aplausos, os mais calorosos, aqueles que acolhem uma boa notícia dada em primeira mão, e se alguns, ou mesmo muitos, se vierem a manifestai depois, sempre hão-­‐de ter um sabor a caldo requentado. Enganava-­‐se. Quando o comandante chegou ao acampamento, haveria que discutir se acompanhado por ou acompanhando o boieiro e os bois, estavam os homens formados em duas linhas, os braçais de um lado, os militares do outro, e ao centro o elefante com o seu cornaca sentado, todos aplaudindo com entusiasmo, dando vozes de alegria, se isto aqui fosse um barco de piratas seria a altura de dizer, Um num duplo para todos.
