"What are you trying to say?" "I don't think you should see Kevin again." "That's up to me, isn't it?" "Look, you know that I like Kevin. He's a nice fellow but if you start to go out with him it'll just lead to trouble. Look how much there's been already." Sadie got up and walked over to the window. She opened it and leaned out. "I'm sick of this street and all the people in it. I'm going to make up my own mind. There was a time when you agreed, Tommy. We spent some good days together, the four of us, didn't we?" He stirred uneasily. "But it became difficult ,didn't it? We always had to slip away, pretend we were going somewhere else. We had to give it up." "Perhaps we gave up too easily." Her voice was quiet now, all aggression gone from it. "You're not going to change anything by going out with Kevin McCoy." He left her still leaning out of the window looking down on the s street. She stayed there for a long time, with her elbows on the sill, thinking of Kevin s dark eyes and infectious laugh. The thought of him stayed with her whilst she preparedgot ready for bed and eventually fell asleep. Text
