She held his face gently in her hands and touched his forehead with her nose. The monkey seemed shocked while looking at the man who had always fed her lying down, closing his eyes, and never moving again. After seeing if he was breathing, she grabbed his neck shirt, cried tears, touched his leg, bowed down, and sat next to him.
