2. Chrysalis (6:09)
[Tome I]

(Extract from the 28th book of the krimson confraternity, title 7: «Unfinished diary» related by Jamal Al Azad and its last student from 1215 to 1233 or 1234)

[Chapter I: Chrysalis]
(Pages 1 to 8, written by the priest Jamal Al Azad in 1215 cycle 4)

[Tyro] «See... I put my faith in your arms... This secret must not be betrayed! I know I can believe in you...
So I am placing this child in your trust... He is the apple of my eye... I know that you will devote your undivided attention to this uncommon child. He is a treasure... He could... He will become a man thanks to your help.»

[I, the priest] «What an atypical present! Thanks for you trust, I hope I will be up to this mission... Let me know what you are expecting from me...
I will do the best I can to bring up this rosebud, it will be dawned in a few years. I will honour my commitments as a man who have to obey the divine law.»

[Tyro] «Quite a few years will be passed when I decide to come back and check that he is ready to pass the test and join me.»

(In a whirlwind, the god Tyro disappeared, leaving me facing the baby...)

[I, to myself] «Oh god, what will I do? God, what is happening to me? I cannot bring up this baby... I am lacking in courage... I could not succeed... in such a mission... I am just realising what I am expected to prove.»

[I remember] «It must not be betrayed...»

[I, to the baby] «Fragile as a crystal diamond... Chrysalis, you will become a butterfly!»

[I, to myself] «Come on, priest... take courage in both hands...»

[I, to the baby] «Baby, I will teach you the rules you need to know to survive in our realm... I will offer you the way... to become... someone... good... sensitive... and... reasoning... and not a simple puppet... I trust in you!»

(A sweet wind opened the window)

[I, to the baby] «Chrysalis, you will become a butterfly, rosebud will be dawned soon!
Whatever happens, I will keep you in my arms...
Wherever you are coming from, you will be my son...
Take my life, no matter what I will become, because you are my child now!
Whenever you leave me, you will stay alone...
Whoever you become, you will stay my son!»
