i! Read The Phantom Man Duology by #ChaieneSantos. Available in English, Portuguese and Spanish on Amazon. EXCERPT: At that exact moment, before the sad truth was uncovered, the mage stretched his arm. Suddenly, everything changed… Time stopped and everyone was static. The only ones with movements were Juan and Philip. The baby opened his eyes. The wizard looked at him and smiled. “You’ll be all right, Prince of the Wizards. May the Gods be with you…” He placed the boy, who was a newborn too, on the bed. He delicately passed his hands on the stillborn baby’s body, took some of its blood and placenta, and rubbed them over Philip, who looked like a child that had just been born there, at that exact moment. He stared at the other kid, the one who would not open its eyes to see that world.
Todos estão comentando no mundo de onde vim que você ajuda as pessoas a resolver os problemas que não as deixam ir embora. E eu não aguento mais ficar aqui sem meu pai. Minha mãe mora com a minha irmã e meus avós querem que eu fique com eles do outro lado.
— E por que você não vai com eles? Certamente cuidarão bem de você porque conhecem o melhor caminho e o amam.
— Preciso falar com meu pai. Tenho visto a culpa que ele carrega pela minha morte. Quando a polícia o pegou, o carro em que estávamos foi metralhado e vários tiros me acertaram. Tentaram correr comigo para o hospital enquanto levavam o meu pai preso, mas de nada adiantou. Perdi muito sangue e agora estou aqui como está vendo.— Qual é o seu nome?
— Me chamo Pedro.
— E seu pai? Quem é?
O menino apontou suavemente o dedo para uma das camas onde um dos homens dormia.
— Por favor, toque nele para que eu o identifique.
“… I could’ve even given you a grandson or a granddaughter. I beg you both to forgive me… More than ever, know that I truly love you. And I’m looking forward to the day that we’ll be together again, and I’ll embrace you one more time. Let Julie know that I’ve never stopped loving her, and that she should live her life, find a new love. She’s still too young to be chained to what happened between us in the past. This life is a path through which we must learn, and you both were the best parents a child could ever have. If we knew how much it hurts to be apart from those that we love, we would certainly think twice before doing the same mistakes. I love you both very much. Good bye!”
“Please, tell him that we also love him very much!” Milena now believed.”I don’t have to say anything, madam. Alessandro is listening to you right now. He is close to you. But now he has to go…”
“Thank you, Philip! You can’t realize how much you’ve helped me,” the spirit said good-bye with sad eyes.
“Go in peace, Alessandro. They’ll hear you with their hearts, so that they’ll never forget you.
