Die Rinde am Stamm ist glatt, glänzend und in unterschiedliche Schichten zerteilt, was sie ein bisschen ausgefranst aussehen lässt. Ich schieße ein Foto, doch aus irgendeinem Grund freue ich mich gar nicht so sehr über die Entdeckung. »Danke. Genau, was ich gesucht habe«, sage ich und hoffe, dass Loch die Enttäuschung in meiner Stimme nicht bemerkt. Und wenn er es doch tut, lässt er sich nichts anmerken. Sieben ­ Am Freitag vor H alloween prasselt Regen gegen die Scheiben der Winston Academy, während mein Kopf vor lauter Rechenaufgaben schwirrt.

Ollie springt von seinem Sitz auf. »Wie auch immer. Ich hoffe, damit wäre alles geklärt. Ich bin am Verhungern! « »Warte. « Gerade, als alles wieder anfängt, sich normal anzufühlen, lassen sie mich stehen. Ich schnelle so überstürzt hoch, dass mein Stuhl umkippt und mit lautem Geklapper auf dem Boden landet. Als ich ihn eilig wieder aufstelle, wirft der Mann hinter dem Tresen mir einen bösen Blick zu. »Wir wollen uns bloß ’ne Pizza holen«, erwidert Ollie. Cowboy erhebt sich jetzt ebenfalls und tritt von einem Bein aufs andere, als wollte er noch was zu mir sagen.

Er sieht mich nicht an. « H inter uns ist das Knacken eines Zweiges zu hören. Wir drehen uns beide um, plötzlich hellwach. Ich suche zwischen den Bäumen nach der Ursache für das Geräusch, kann aber nichts entdecken. Als mein Puls sich beschleunigt, komme ich mir blöd vor. Ich denk ja nicht, dass ein Axtmörder versuchen würde, uns am helllichten Tag umzubringen, aber das Gefühl der Einsamkeit hier draußen, so verborgen zwischen den Zucker-Ahornen, ist schon irgendwie gruselig. Vielleicht sollte ich das mit den H orrorfilmen in Zukunft lieber lassen.
