PANTONE MANIt had been a busy week at the publishing house. On friday night, she said to him again that he was too much stooped."... It is just because my center of gravity is in my eyes after editing all those books", he answered."And look at your pigmentation", she replied."My what?"."You promised me", she said, "that you would work in something colourful this week. I'm sick of cheap paperbacks. Another friday, and again you are not even a duotone. Listen, this is not funny. Am I supposed to attend my nephew's birthday party dragging a hunchback guy in black and white?".She was not cruel, in fact she had a childish and calm heart. Still, it did not prevent her from attending the party without him. He could not understand. All he did during that week was follow his heart.Alone, he wandered the streets. He entered a church, sat in a pew and assumed the most helpless, dull, insignificant, and grey pose. But no one was there to watch him, at least no one he was aware of, and besides, it was dark outside and the stained glass windows were just plain black. So he got up and made his way back home.As he crossed the street she made a call. "She must be fed up right now with the nephew's party", he thought as he heard the background noise across the phone."Oh well, you got me", she said on the phone. "You know how I love the drawings to color".
