She wants to forget about Gabriel. Then, without preamble, the destruction starts: cli-clik (the sound of a lighter starts the fire to burn the most precious objects) crashhhh / boooom / pssshhhhhh / plo-plo / pang / tocoplón. She starts mutilating all the items that make her to remember him: books, music, movies, his house... even her own clitoris. Everything. "To forget about Gabriel I would have to cry so much, to the point he becomes salt and water in a folded napkin after blowing my nose”. She stated, before taking us to the last level of destruction: a cemetery-like room with items and fiction characters, and right there among the ruins, she finds something: a plot twist ... a secret.
