She is clearly surprised by my awakening, so surprised that I remember she turned very sharp bending her head and shoulders as if was protecting a secret or showing a simple embarrassment. Wonderful, and unexpected, the landscape knocks on the window several times, but the woman is still there, fixed, rather motionless, ...she will not open to anyone.
