Sample text

Und ich musste mich an den Gedanken gewöhnen, dass es Zeit wurde, ihm noch mehr Raum zu geben, ihn unabhängiger sein zu lassen. �Ich versuche immer, mir möglichst wenig Sorgen zu machen», sagte ich. «Ben ist ein kluger Junge, er macht keinen unnötigen Blödsinn. » �Handys sind in der Schule während der Unterrichtszeiten nicht erlaubt. Wie kommen Sie überhaupt darauf? » Anonyme Anrufe waren allerdings doch eher selten. » Darauf wusste ich nichts zu erwidern. Und langsam verlor ich auch die Geduld mit Joe.

Er war tot. Unterwegs, um Ben von seinem Freund abzuholen und anschließend zusammen mit ihm nach Hause zum Abendessen zu kommen, hatte er in einer unübersichtlichen Kurve die Kontrolle über seinen Wagen verloren. Wegen seiner Prominenz gab es nach dem Unfall eine gerichtliche Untersuchung, doch das war reine Formsache. Menschen kamen nun mal bei Autounfällen ums Leben, so etwas passierte. Man hatte mir erzählt, sein Nachruf sei nicht nur auf der Titelseite der Vineyard Gazette erschienen, sondern auch in allen großen Zeitungen weltweit.

Eigentlich hatte ich mir irgendwo unterwegs einen holen wollen, aber die Cafés waren alle noch geschlossen. Ich war erschöpft, hatte dieses typische Gefühl der Übermüdung, bei dem man glaubt, jeden Moment zusammenzubrechen. Denn als Joe seine Anrufversuche endlich eingestellt hatte, war an Schlaf erst einmal nicht zu denken gewesen. Sechsmal hatte er angerufen, sechsmal alle zehn Klingeltöne ausgenutzt, bis sich der Anrufbeantworter einschaltete. Dann hatte er endlich aufgegeben. Sechs Anrufe. Sechzigmal Telefonklingeln.
