EXTRAIT

J’allume l’ordinateur, clique sur le navigateur qui me relie au reste du monde. Rien. los angeles connexion net n’est pas disponible. Je me tourne alors vers l. a. télévision, il me faut cinq bonnes mins pour retrouver l. a. télécommande, pourtant sagement à sa position dans le tiroir de los angeles desk basse. Sur un fond noir, un message défile. Je zappe frénétiquement, mais les mots glissent, toujours identiques, sur l’écran :

LES AUTORITÉS VOUS DEMANDENT DE RESTER CHEZ VOUS, PLUS D’INFORMATIONS DANS l. a. JOURNÉE LES AUTORITÉS VOUS DEMANDENT DE RESTER CHEZ VOUS, PLUS D’INFORMATIONS DANS los angeles JOURNÉE LES AUTORITÉS VOUS DEMANDENT DE RESTER CHEZ VOUS, PLUS…

Je tombe comme une masse dans le canapé, mes pensées se bousculent, incohérentes. Il n’est que six heures du matin, mais je suis complètement épuisée, comme vidée par une journée beaucoup trop pleine. J’entends alors Stéphane, il semble se plaindre – ce qu’il ne fait jamais –, il m’appelle. Quelque selected de froid creuse un trou dans mon corps.
Le drap est trempé de sueur, j’y passe los angeles major sans comprendre remark j’ai pu passer los angeles nuit dans ce lit sans rien remarquer. Stéphane est brûlant, ses yeux brillent dans los angeles pénombre de los angeles chambre et ses longs cheveux sont collés à son crâne. Il tremble. Mais il me sourit, me demande un peu d’aspirine. Je lui en promets avant de me précipiter sur mon téléphone. J’appelle le a hundred and forty four. Il n’y a pas de tonalité, pas de répondeur, rien. Je fouille los angeles veste de Stéphane, cherche son vieux transportable tout rafistolé, compose encore le one hundred forty four. Rien.

J’essaie alors tous les numéros que je trouve dans l. a. liste des contacts de Stéphane – pas plus d’une dizaine –, mais ça ne sonne jamais et je reste impuissante avec un stupide morceau de plastique contre mon oreille glacée.

CE QU'EN PENSE los angeles CRITIQUE

« Se pose l. a. query de los angeles survie, dans un monde rendu à sa sauvagerie, chacun oscillant sur le fil entre égoïsme, méfiance et nécessaire soutien mutuel. Lolvé Tillmanns va au bout de son exploration d’une société soudain livrée à elle-même, redevenue jungle, et pointe l. a. fragilité des règles civilisées qui régissent les rapports humains : c’est avec une rapidité confondante que l’homme, confronté à l. a. peur, devient sans complexes un loup pour l’homme. » (Anne Pitteloud, Le Courrier).

A PROPOS DE L’AUTEUR

Née en 1982, à Morges, Lolvé Tillmanns a décidé un beau jour de quitter le advertising pour l. a. littérature. Nul doute qu’elle a fait là un choix judicieux.
