Sample text

Als hätte ein Kind sie geschrieben. Ein paar Pfadfinder und ein kleiner Schnitt in den Finger. Das war’s. Oder nicht? »Rose, ich weiß nicht recht«, begann er vorsichtig. »Vielleicht sollten wir’s einfach vergessen. « Er konnte genau sehen, wie seine Ansage wirkte. Roses Körper begann zu zittern, ihr Rücken bebte. Fast hätte man meinen können, dass sich ein Lachanfall ankündigte. Aber Carl kannte Rose, und deshalb zog er sich zurück, nur ­einen Schritt, aber ausreichend, um einer funkensprühenden Schimpftirade nicht ganz so direkt ausgesetzt zu sein.

Carl brummte. Das schottische Paket stand vor ihm auf dem Schreibtisch. Ungute Gefühle hatten es ja leider so an sich, dass sie sich meist als richtig erwiesen. Und dieser Pappkarton mit dem Klebeband des Zolls hatte wahrlich keine gute Ausstrahlung. « Assads Augen klebten förmlich an dem braunen Pappkarton. « Carl deutete mit dem Daumen nach oben. »Rose, komm mal«, rief Carl in den Flur. Fünf Minuten vergingen, bevor sie auftauchte. Das war in etwa der zeitliche Rahmen, mit dem sie klarmachte, wer darüber bestimmte, was getan werden musste und besonders: wann.

In jeder Pause hockte sie ganz für sich in der Ecke des Gartens, und wenn dann die Mutter zur nächsten Stunde rief, deckte sie etwas zu. 44 Für ein halbwüchsiges Mädchen in einer Familie, die sich zur Kirche der Gottesmutter bekannte, gab es viele Restriktionen und Tabus: Tanz, Musik, alles Gedruckte – abgesehen natürlich von den Veröffentlichungen der Kirche selbst –, Alkohol, Kontakte zu Menschen außerhalb der Gemeinde, Kuscheltiere, Fernsehen, Internet. Alles war verboten, und die Strafe für Übertretungen war hart: Man wurde aus der Familie und der Gemeinde ausgestoßen.
