Come on, Gino. ’ ‘I’m starving,’ said Pik. ’ Gino pushed him out the way as he got up. They crept down the stairs, past Maureen who was sprawled across the couch with her eyes shut and her mouth open, even though the sunlight was slanting in through the window right over her face.

Pik was crying in the kitchen, where all the coffee cups were half-full on the bench and the dishes still everywhere. ’ Jelly asked, out of breath from running up the creek bank faster than she’d ever done.
