I said to you the following: "Events, do you believe this: they occured?"
Do you believe the following: these events occured in the past?
I was a child; I was of the following opinion: my mother was important to me.
She was a beautiful woman.
My father entered my house one day so he could sing to me.
But he played for a long time, with the result that he summoned a very evil spirit.
The spirit was strong and tore my father apart and then ate him.
My mother and I backed away from the spirit.
We could not stop the spirit.
The following is plain for me; I was not angry or jealous about these events.
I never discussed these events.
