Sample text

I asked myself what Ernesto could be doing. It never even crossed my mind that he might have gone to the police to tell them what had happened. I mean, why wash your dirty linen in public? An accident’s an accident. If Ernesto went to the police, they would ask him too many awkward questions. Why had he arranged to meet a girl in the Palermo Woods? Why had they argued? What was the nature of their relationship? Awkward and, at the end of the day, unhelpful. Truelove was dead, after all. There are no guilty parties in an accident, just victims.

I rang the bell – just in case the dead woman had not lived alone. There was no answer. I put the key in the lock and went in. It was a two-room apartment, small but stylish, and very tidy. Before going through drawers and cupboards, I had a quick look around the place. There were masses of framed photographs. Family photos. All of them with toothpaste-ad smiles. “To think that these people will soon be crying,” I thought. Two photographs stood out because of their size and position: a portrait of Truelove in black and white, and a colour photo in which she was hugging a girl of about twenty, very tall with long black hair.

OK? You went off at ten o’clock and you were back by half-past ten. That’s not enough time to go anywhere or do anything. ” I don’t know if he did understand. Not only did he not say anything, but he gave me a look that made me feel like sending him to stand in a corner of the classroom. Because at heart – and this is his serious failing – Ernesto is a child. He never grows up. And sometimes I get sick of being a mother to him. However much you love your man, there are limits and sometimes, to be honest, I feel like putting a bullet between his eyes.
