Doch ihm war jetzt alles egal. Und wenn er die ganze Nacht fahren müsste, nur um Emily schlafend in ihrem Bett vorzufinden, er musste es tun. Er brauchte sechs Minuten, um den Herd abzuschalten, das Essen in den Kühlschrank zu stellen beziehungsweise in den Abfall zu werfen, die wichtigsten Anziehsachen in eine Leinentasche zu stopfen und die Wohnung abzuschließen; zwei Minuten, um zur Autovermietung zu kommen und dort viel Geld für ein Riesenauto hinzulegen.

Emily kritzelte ihre Unterschrift auf die Quittung und schob ihren Einkaufswagen dann in aller Eile zum Ausgang.
