Image
"A fool dressed in a white suit from head to toe and white shoes." It was the brash styling José Enrique Abuín, "Chewing Gum" 41, when moving cocaine to an uncle, a member of the clan of Fanchos in 2007. It was so striking the look that the Civil Guards who arrested him (with more than two kilos of drugs in the same Fiat that still parked at home) described it that way. By then, Kike, which was also nicknamed "The Chiquilín" in the world of narcos second with aspirations, had been arrested and accused of raping his wife's sister. He was 29.

They are shadows that walk beside the city, come with us to a family restaurant, watching us from a photograph in black and white, retrieve voice and warmth in those dreams would not want to wake up. They are there, in eerily increasing numbers. They have their own entity, specific nature, sometimes almost corporeality, as much as sorry, but usually their role is similar to the air we breathe without being aware of doing so. Then comes a special date, a special event, a celebration associated in memory of his presence, and burst suddenly on emotion, that elephant in china shop, knocking down mercilessly all defensive barriers that get up layer by layer in order to scare the sadness caused by his absence.
