“Waarheen het sy gegaan toe sy dood gegaan het, toe sy van die Berg af gespring het? Sy soek hom, sal sy hom ooit kry? Waar is sy, in watse dimensie is sy? Wie is saam met haar in daai dimensie? Hoe kom sy uit, hoe redeem sy haarself uit dit uit? Waar is die Heks…diep in Matroosberge in die Hexriviervallei en diep in ‘n dimensie wat ons na uitreik om aan te raak.”
