PART II - THE VOLCANO ERUPTS
CHAPTER 1 - THE GRAY EMINENCE

"Nonsense, he writes editorials for those in power," Peter countered with contempt in his voice.
" On the other hand," Robert said, "he does have the ability to bring about compromises. After all, politics consists of facing reality."
" Yes, but one should draw the line at treason," Micko remarked angrily.
I didn't enter the discussion, but I whispered to Lonci to invite him for coffee the next day. Needless to say, I had my own opinion about the Gray Eminence. In fact, I had given him that name. He was typical of the "powers behind the throne" who exist in every country. He operated in the historic tradition of Machiavelli. The Gray Eminence was the silent man of influence and power who always stayed in the background, letting others strut on the stage, shaking hands and acting important, while he manipulated affairs from behind the scenes.
I remembered the first visit he had paid me ten years ago. I still remembered his tall figure, always stooped a little, as if he were apologizing to all the shorter men because he had succeeded in growing so tall. His face made him look older than he was, his hair was carefully combed over his forehead, to camouflage its height. His glasses partly hid the searching glances of his big blue eyes. His hands felt strangely damp and his handshake alternated between limp and surprisingly firm. I have learned that this depended on my situation in politics at any given time. Like a barometer, his handshake indicated the security of my political position.
His speech, like his movements, was slow and deliberate. He spoke in even tones, emphasizing the end of words. His appearance, as well as his name, was insignificant. He rarely stepped into the limelight, for he preferred to stay in the background. Those high in politics, cabinet members, associate State Secretaries, knew him well. He wrote articles and speeches for many of them. He lent his pen and talent, but only to those
