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

I stared at him in amazement. There were tears in his eyes, real tears. I could not help but admire his magnificent acting ability. Apparently he really "lived" his role.
He sat down in an armchair and spoke to my wife and to me in quiet tones. He oozed humility and spoke in a conciliatory tone. He knew that both of us suspected him, and that circumstances seemed to show him in an unfavorable light.
He proceeded to give a brief summary of the past few years, how Moscow tried to exert pressure on the regime, and how a few of them fought an almost hopeless battle trying to retain a measure of independence for the country. He explained that he had worked to get me freed. I would never know how hard he had worked, he said. He didn't want me to thank him for this; that wasn't the reason he mentioned it.
I kept quiet, darting an occasional glance at my wife. I remembered her telling me that two years earlier she had telephoned the Gray Eminence trying to get his help. He hadn't even come to the phone.
He talked for hours. By now, however, I knew his tactics. All of this was to wear me out. He would come to the point, later on.

Now, it's time for you to enter the political arena again. You must have noticed that things have been happening. A new era is about to start. Of course, a Western type of democracy is merely wishful thinking," he emphasized.

This means a certain amount of freedom and a certain amount
