Total Blackout – PIERRE MARCHAIS - DAY 22

PIERRE MARCHAIS - DAY 22

After two days of uninterrupted rain, the sun had reappeared in the Breton sky. A few white clouds dotted the sky, as blue as the sea, and everyone agreed that this splendid weather would last at least a week. However, it was only wishful thinking, as without weather reports, certainty was impossible.

All that could be heard was the cry of seagulls. Sometimes these seabirds seemed to be scolding someone, but most of the time, you would think they had been told a good joke.

The air temperature was pleasant and invited people to leave their homes and go for walks on the numerous beaches in the area.

Pierre lazily stepped out of his new house and stretched in the sun.

It was a second home belonging to a Parisian named Charles Petit, who only visited a few weeks a year. Since it was highly unlikely he would ever return to Saint-Pabu, the mayor had generously allowed Pierre to settle there.

It was quite modest, not even 100m2 (1076 square feet), and located on the outskirts of the small town. However, it was much larger than what he owned in Paris, about twice as big. The old prices were simply incomparable. The most important thing was that this house had a garden!

Behind it, separated by a thick hedge and a few trees, lay countless fields.

He had spoken a few times with Madame Le Gall, the mayor of Saint-Pabu, as well as with Yvon, the manager of La Goélette<

/em>, to understand how things worked. Because suddenly having to support a thousand inhabitants without anyone's help put intense pressure on the mayor of Saint-Pabu.

She had summoned all the adults to the sports hall that usually hosted the tennis club. It wasn't very beautiful because the building resembled an ordinary warehouse, and it wasn't very large because it had never been used for an emergency meeting before.

Pierre dressed in what he had brought with him from Paris since the previous owners had left practically nothing behind. He wore each piece of clothing for five days before changing. The white shirt he was currently wearing was the one he had on when the power outage occurred. It was the first time he had worn it since then. Unfortunately, it still smelled of sweat. It was better than his previous top, which reeked of perspiration.

Because he understood that here in Saint-Pabu he was safe, he left his weapons and shiny armor in his new room.

The inhabitants of this commune, informed several days in advance of the holding of this exceptional meeting, had had time to organize themselves. Naturally, the curiosity of the children was so strong that it was expected they would try something to slip into the crowd. It wasn't very complicated, and some of them did manage it.

The ex-trader entered the already crowded building and searched in vain for the mayor's face. People were crowded together and all talking at once, which prevented him from understanding more than a few words.

Why were we called here? Did something happen?<

/em>

A large hand then landed on Pierre's shoulder. It was Yvon. He wore a simple gray t-shirt with a turtle design on the back, reminiscent of tribal tattoos in the Pacific islands.
