— Может, ты еще и проклянешь подлого Баламута?! — сегодня собственный голос плохо слушался Кришну, и издевка выворачивалась наизнанку, превращаясь в страх.— Ну, давай же: "Если есть у меня духовные заслуги..." Я жду!
— Проклятие — оружие отчаявшихся, Кришна. Нет у меня духовных заслуг; нет и отчаяния. К чему мне проклинать тебя — ты сам себя проклял! Ступай и живи с этим!.. И поверь мне: еще минута, и я без всяких проклятий убью тебя, убью просто и безыскусно, прямо сейчас, на глазах у всех!
