She enters in the maze of his life, look left and see the pictures of his passing on earth. He too was born an innocent child with hopes and ambitions. Who knew from the beginning that he would turn out to become such a monster? As she walks she can hear the cries and pains of those he burnet at stake. This was a man so avid of power he subjugated an entire nation under his fist. Then she stops and thinks about something she had heard before. Oh! Yes she can recall it all, her master use to tell her that words are power and now she understands the master clearly. He was born the son of a human; he was once the baby of a lady. She is in his labyrinth asked to write the story of a man she thought was a man. She remembers her brothers playing around with toy soldiers and when they would get fed up with them they would throw them out of the window just like this man she now starts to understand. This was a man with two legs, a brain, a heart and a wife at home. She dries up the tears from her eyes and asks herself why did god create such a being? Then she recalls it all again, in the Garden of Eden was placed two trees, one was the tree of life and the other of good and evil. Then she hears a little voice in her telling her life is the global, the acceptance of another just as they are, an elephant's goal is never to be the only elephant. Those words are a bit hard to digest, than she hears another telling her that truth is hard and stiff but as we get used to it it becomes soft and net. She still walks in the maze of his life, she reaches out to her bag and brings out a bible, she reads genesis and understand that god gave man a choice but man thought he had no choice. What was Adam and Eve mistake? She still walks in the maze and suddenly a wind passes her by, Adam and Eve refused to acknowledge that they used their thinking, Adam cannot be innocent: refusing to think is thinking itself, eve surely isn't so innocent: she shouldn't blame the snake. Was the snake cursed? No it wasn't but man thought it so. As she is about to leave the maze she realizes that she has the key, would she throw it away to never enter the maze? That would be silly as past has much to tell us. She is his wife: yes the criminal's wife.
