Komm bald nach, Liebling«, sagte sie. « Er erwiderte nichts. Sie blieb noch einen Augenblick in der Tür stehen und betrachtete ihn. Mit seinen zweiundvierzig Jahren sah er immer noch jung aus. Ihm war nie bewusst gewesen, wie attraktiv er eigentlich war – eine, wie sie fand, ebenso anziehende wie seltene Eigenschaft bei einem Mann.
