Example text

She asked. ‘Not since he left the yard. ’ Brede shook her head and shrugged. She was not really worried about him. He liked to wander far afield, hated to be confined within a few streets. ‘I thought he might have been round to see me the night,’ said Kate. ’ Kate tried to cling on to Kevin but most of the time she irritated him, and this Brede knew. The voices from the street grew louder. Brede turned to look out of the window again. The children were running about excitedly. She leaned out further and saw that two soldiers were coming down the road.

My Gawd, you men! ’ he said mildly, not even lifting his head. ’ Mrs Mullet returned to the doorway where she stood watching the light failing over the street. The only person she saw was old Granny McEvoy, wrapped in her grey shawl out looking for her cat. But Granny McEvoy was almost stone deaf and got the whole story wrong so Mrs Mullet gave up in despair. She had to put up with ten minutes of the old woman telling her how her man had fought with the Specials at the time of the partition of Ireland, and escaped death by inches.

They had all been at school then, different schools. They had started as enemies, had even fought with stones and fists; then for a while they had been friends but eventually had drifted apart because of the difficulties of meeting.
