Sample text

Es klingelte an der Tür, dann hörte er, wie Kelly sich bei einer Nachbarin bedankte, die gekommen war, um ihr Beileid auszudrücken und ihnen etwas zu essen zu bringen. Als Kelly ins Zimmer kam, war Cardinal peinlich berührt, als ihm bewusst wurde, dass er mit der Schuhbürste in der Hand vor dem Wandschrank kniete, reglos wie einer der Toten von Pompeji. �Wir müssen gleich fahren«, sagte Kelly. « �Die Schuhe, Dad. « Kelly setzte sich auf das Bett hinter ihm. Während er seine Schuhe bürstete, konnte er ihr Spiegelbild in der Schranktür sehen.

Du musstest dich dauernd um mich kümmern, als ich noch klein war – du hast mich praktisch allein großgezogen. Und was du dir alles von ihr hast gefallen lassen! Ich weiß noch, wie du einmal, als wir noch in Toronto wohnten, diesen total komplizierten Schrank gebaut hast mit all den Schubladen und kleinen Türen. Ich glaube, du hast ungefähr ein Jahr lang daran gearbeitet, und dann kommst du eines Tages nach Hause, und sie hat ihn kurz und klein geschlagen, weil sie Brennholz brauchte! Sie hat irgendwas gefaselt von Feuer und kreativer Zerstörung, was überhaupt keinen Sinn ergab, und sie hat diesen Schrank kaputtgemacht, den du so liebevoll gebaut hattest.

Während er seine Schuhe bürstete, konnte er ihr Spiegelbild in der Schranktür sehen. Alle sagten, sie hätte seine Augen. Aber sie hatte Catherines Lippen, mit kleinen Fältchen an den Mundwinkeln, die sich vertieften, wenn sie lächelte. Und sie hätte auch Catherines Haare, wenn sie sie wachsen ließe und nicht so einen strengen Kurzhaarschnitt trüge mit einer einzelnen aufgehellten Strähne. Sie war ungeduldiger als ihre Mutter, hatte höhere Ansprüche an andere Menschen, die sie folglich ständig enttäuschten, aber vielleicht lag das einfach daran, dass sie noch so jung war.
