Sans le vouloir, j'avais commis le crime parfait : personne ne m'avait vu venir, à part la victime. La preuve, c'est que je suis toujours en liberté. C'est dans le hall d'un aéroport que tout a commencé. Il savait que ce serait lui. La victime parfaite. Le coupable désigné d'avance. Il lui a suffi de parler. Et d'attendre que le piège se referme. C'est dans le hall d'un aéroport que tout s'est terminé. De toute façon, le hasard n'existe pas.

Et il n'avait pas protesté. Il ne protestait jamais. En définitive, il ne leur était pas arrivé une seule fois de dormir ensemble.
