Extra info for Best Kept Secrets
Zusammen mit Georgia. Ein paar Koffer packen, und in drei Stunden sind wir weg. Danny kann das regeln. Danny kann … Als ob er das alles laut ausgesprochen hätte, sagte Jessica: »Na los, hauen Sie ab! Mieten Sie sich irgendwo in einem Hotel ein, und warten Sie ab, was passiert. Wo Sie auch hingehen, er geht mit. « Sie fing an zu lachen. «, sagte er. Immer noch die Selbstbeherrschung in Person. Immer noch absolut ruhig. Schweigen. Die zornige Schwester war außer Atem und brauchte ein paar Sekunden, bevor sie antworten konnte.
Es war ihm egal, ob der alte Mann seinen Rücken anstarrte, Hauptsache, sie hatten keinen Augenkontakt… und abgesehen davon: Da war ja gar kein alter Mann. Er schlüpfte ins Zimmer, verschloss die Tür hinter sich und ging auf direktem Weg ins Bett, wo er sofort zu zittern anfing. Irgendwie hatte er das Bedürfnis, sich an Georgia zu schmiegen, wollte sich an ihr festhalten, wollte, dass die Wärme ihres Körpers sein Frösteln vertrieb. Aber weil er sie nicht wecken wollte, blieb er auf seiner Seite des Bettes und starrte die Decke an.
Wenn so ein alter Knochen erst mal so weit ist, dann geht das ziemlich schnell, wenn kein Futter mehr nachkommt. « �Warum fragst du? « 5 Vierzig Minuten später schlurfte er ins Badezimmer, weil er ein Fußbad nehmen wollte – seine Plattfüße, Schuhgröße fünfzig, waren ein Quell ständiger Schmerzen. Dort traf er auf Georgia, die sich über das Waschbecken beugte und an ihrem Daumen nuckelte. Sie trug ein T-Shirt und eine Pyjamahose, die mit einem schnuckeligen Muster aus winzigen roten Figuren bedruckt war, die man bei oberflächlicher Betrachtung für Herzen halten konnte.
