He enters one last time into his parlor, where his old typewriter awaits him at the end of the hall. He takes his time and walks through the obscure room. The only words that come to his mind are: 'Number of times...' trying to find meaning to all his life experiences through a certain sum of numbers. But as he gets closer and closer to the end of the list, his mind starts recalling his most sad and terrible memories.
