Oh, this is my baby boy! They grow up very quick. He’s laughing. He went for a swim and he’s very happy.
The baby boy looks like Nick. So, Nick says: “If it looks like me he should be called Nick!” He comes from Athens. Other people brought him from there. He’s a beautiful baby and happy. He’s looking at something and he’s laughing.
He’s happy he’s not in a wheelchair. Maybe he’s looking at a dance. There’s something around him—he’s in a container.
He must have a family. He disappeared from home—slow, slow. He’s glad to be in the bag. There’s something in the bag to make it more attractive—some flowers or something. He looks very happy. One hand is going one way and the other hand is going another way. His face is smiling.
He comes from Kolonaki. We could hear the outdoors and it’s more than he ever heard. If it was very hot, we might smell something.
He has no clothes on in the bag. He shouldn’t be there at all. He is trying to come out. There must be locks on the bag to keep the baby in there, but they’re more hidden than shown.
Val wonders if he was spoiled. The bag was all they could find to put him in. There’s a wheeler there and they gave it to him after. If Nick was there he would go closer, talk with him and play with him. He would pick him up, put him on his chest, and take him back to Kolonaki. Nick would carry him with his own hands.
They were saying to the baby: “How are you and everything else”!
